Dogs as Teachers
INSPIRATIONAL, 15 Oct 2018
If dogs were our teachers, we would learn:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
No matter how often you are 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.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
