I heard this on Face the Nation. Bob Schieffer said he didn’t know where it came from to give credit. Any way you look at it though, it is so worth remembering!
If dogs could give us a few life lessons, here is what some of them would be:
Never pass the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
Recognize the ecstasy of fresh air and wind in your face.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, lie on your back in the grass. On hot days, drink lots of water and find the shade.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want is buried, dig deep until you find it.
And, when someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Now, make your week a great one…it’s the only second week of January 2010 that you will ever have!
