If a dog had been your teacher
If a dog had been your teacher, you would:
Always run to greet loved ones when they came home
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Enjoy the simple experience of fresh air and the wind in your face.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Enjoy attention and affection.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
Lie on your back on the grass.
On hot day, drink lots of water and lie 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 guilt – 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.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
And, if what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
And when someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
