If a dog was your teacher,
these are some of the lessons you might learn…

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