IF A DOG WERE YOUR TEACHER…

 Think about what you could learn from your dog:

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

- Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

- 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.

- 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 grass.

- On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.

- When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

- No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout — run right back and make friends.

- Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

- Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

- Be loyal.

- Never pretend to be something you’re not.

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