We all could learn from the animals.

They are our teachers

If Animals were in charge  Life's Rules would be Simple

- Wisdom of Confucius

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."



Dog is God spelled backwards. People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life - like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay on this earth as long. Maybe that is why a dog's year is equal to seven of ours. We need more practice. The animal kingdom isn't called a kingdom by accident. They have the answers. They are innately wise and on a much higher plane than us humans.

Think about this...if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like this....

  1.      When a loved one comes home, always run to greet them.
  2.      Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
  3.      Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
  4.      Take naps.
  5.      Stretch before rising.
  6.      Run, romp, and play daily.
  7.      Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  8.      On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  9.      On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree
  10.      When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  11.      Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  12.      Be loyal.
  13.      Never pretend to be something you're not.
  14.      When someone is having a bad day, be  silent, sit close, and nuzzle them gently.
