There’s lots we can learn from a dog about living a good life.

  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy-ride.
  • Get the most out of the experience of fresh air and wind in your face
  • When family members come home, always run to greet them.
  • Be obedient; when it’s in your best interest.
  • Protect your territory.
  • Take naps and stretch before rising.
  • Run and play daily.
  • Eat with enthusiasm.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If you want what is buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close and nuzzle them gently.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Don’t bite when a growl will do.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t feel guilty and pout. Run right back and make friends.
  • Bond with your pack.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
