Things we can learn from a dog

There are so many posts about dogs, dogs and more dogs
that I thought I'd add just one more doggie tale though
it's not directly about dogs per se.

It's about things we can learn from our four-legged friends.
Whoever wrote this must be very well-tuned with the canine species.

Here goes:

1) Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.

2) Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face
to be pure ecstasy.

3) When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

4) When it's in your best interest, always practice obedience.

5) Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

6) Take naps and always stretch before rising.

7) Run, romp and play daily.

8) Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

9) Be loyal.

10) Never pretend to be something you're not.

11) If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

12) When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by
and nuzzle them gently.

13) Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

14) Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

15) Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

16) On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

17) When you are happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

18) No matter how often you are criticized, don't buy into the
guilt thing and pout. Run right back and make friends.

and an extra line from Robin:

    Awaiting news about cats... *grin* Bet that will be much more difficult..

  6. haha. so true!

    agree with wat robin says too!

  7. "No jokes about love and legs, please."

    MM, haha... I'll bear that in mind though sometimes blogs do have a mind of their own.

    Slurp! - you wish!

    LB, cats? No problem. Just you be patient.

    Winn, now I know, pooch-lovers do think alike.

  8. haha.. or rather poo lovers..

    A puppy pee and poo at least 10 times a day.

    Which is why ASD is in trouble. they have to clear 270 a day~!

  9. Robin, haha... what a quick calculation. Actually, it's amazing (I've said this before) that you're coping so well.

    I used to joke about my friend's one single b***h and her mess-ups. I asked her to please set up a sign that says 'Toilet' or 'Do your business here'. Her dear husband is the one who cleans up the mess.

  10. Words of wisdom humans will likely ignnore. wag wag wag

  11. Dear, dear Momo, I think you are so right. Psst...let me tell you a secret. Humans are not that smart but they like to think they are. **Hugs**
