Dog As a Teacher

This cute and funny little story makes great points about how we’d could live a happier life if we paid more attention to our dogs!

We all know that God teaches us the greatest lessons in life. But there are quite a few lessons we could learn about how we should live our live from dogs. Ok, it is a little tongue-in-cheek, but this cute little story has some really great ideas!

A Dog as a Teacher

If a dog were 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.
