If a Dog were a Teacher You would learn things like:

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

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 shade tree.

When your 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 simply joys of a long walk.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you've had enough.

Be Loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

And MOST of all...

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them

I think all animals are teachers, we just have to let them in! And sometimes we need to think like a dog or anyother animal to remember the simple joys of just living.
