Things We Can Learn From a Dog 
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
When you're happy, 
dance around and wag your entire body.
Allow the experience of fresh air 
and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it's in your best interests, practice obedience.
Let others know when they have invaded your territory.
Stretch before rising.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, 
be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Bond with your pack.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water 
and lay under a shady tree.
No matter how often you're scolded, 
don't buy into the guilt thing and pout. Run right back and make friends.
Thrive on attention.
Let people pat you on the head.
Take naps.
