IF A DOG WERE YOUR TEACHER.....You would learn stuff like........
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity 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 other people touch you.
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass.
On hot days, lay under water and lay under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how much your 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 had enough.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig into you find it (remember Lycos the fetcher?).
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Remember...... every dog has his day !
