|When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. |
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
Take naps. 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 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 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.
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.

|We had a party a few years ago, with about 20 friends there. We were sitting outside and my Jack Russel pup
(like the dog in the movie The Mask) started humping one of my best friends legs, it was hilarious, everyone was laughing.
Except the receiver of the dogs attention, he wasn't happy at all, very embarrassed. The funny thing
was that the dog had picked the most reserved, uptight person there.
Dogs are great, they can always make you smile.
|We lost our dog last year...||DINOSAUR|

|One of the hardest tasks I have ever done in my life is when we had to have our 15 year old Golden Retriever put down last year. I lost both parents and a younger brother within a three year period, but losing our family dog was remarkably difficult. I was with him when the vet gave him the shot that would ease his pain and suffering. He knew the end was in sight and he died so galantly. It brings tears to my eyes just to think about it. The one who took it the hardest was his pal, our Rottweiler. I don't think he ever recovered.
Dogs are wonderful creatures, we can learn a lot from them. Perhaps it's because we often take the simple things for granted and don't appreciate them until they are gone.
