Things One can Learn From A Dog
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face be pure ecstasy

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
When it's in your best interests, practice obedience
Let others know when they have invaded your territory
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do
Take naps often and stretch before rising
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it
Thrive on attention, and let people touch you
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
