Everything I Need to Know I Learned From My Dog

Let me start by saying that I don't know who originally came up with this idea nor do I know how old it is, but I found it so clever and cute that I had to bring it up in a blog post of my own. Without further ado, allow me to start this blog post off with a picture.

This here is my dog, Dakota. Yeah, I know he's cute. In fact, he's so cute that I'm gonna allow a few more seconds to admire this handsome beast

Okay, now with that out of the way, it's time for business. Anyway, in the years that I've had Dakota, I've learnt quite a few things about life because of him. Here is an article on the internet that I found that accurately spells it all out. Again, I do not own any of this article and I did not write any of it. I'm merely using it for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

Here is a  list of things I learnt about life from my dog.

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 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.
