If A Dog Were Your Mentor

If A Dog Were Your Teacher !
You would learn stuff like...
*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.
And MOST of all...
*When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
