What our dogs teach us

What has your dog taught you? My mutt reminds me of a few things every day, like to always be forgiving, to listen and to have an open mind. He likes to try new things, travel, meet others and learn.

My mutt is happy to start every day and lives each day to its fullest. He never turns down an opportunity to hang out with friends. He does not need a lot of possessions in order to feel fulfilled. He likes to just sit and ponder life. He appreciates nature and enjoys a long walk. He never lets down his workout buddy. My mutt will indulge in a good meal and is not afraid to take a nap.

My mutt doesn’t judge, he just loves everyone, dog or human, for who they are. He knows appearances aren’t everything, likes to goof around and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He speaks out when upset but shrugs things off when they’re not worth it. He never starts a fight, never holds a grudge, never lies. He is always there.

My mutt teaches me how to be a better friend.

By the way, your dog is pretty cute, he looks fun and dopey. Jenny is too hyper to be dopey.

Jenny has taught me that I have more patience than I ever thought I had (that was nine months of housetraining and no dead dogs, thank you!) She teaches me routine and stability, and of course that some love really is unconditional. Because she loves me without reason to, and I love her IN SPITE of all the reasons not to! Hehe.

Chels has taught me to sit, enjoy the sun and the moment... she has taught me to show Im happy to see someone & not assume that they just know...

I swear with that photo, Ace looks more like Chels each hold on is it the other way around :)

very well said. Dogs (and cats) have it all figured out so much better than we humans. If we could be more like them, we'd all be much happier.
