If a dog were your teacher

Glen FreddoNov 5, '20

If a dog were your teacher you would learn stuff like...

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a car ride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
  • As you enjoy the wind in your face, do not restrict your capacity to drool.
  • When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
  • Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
  • Take naps and stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily, if not by the minute.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the cool grass.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a tree.
  • When you take a drink of water, find a human to drip the extra on.
  • When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • No matter how often or severely you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout... run right back and make friends.
  • Delight in the simple joys of a long walk.
  • Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Don't stop when you've had enough.
  • Be loyal.
  • Tolerate cats, humans love that.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it, where ever that leads you.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
