Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
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.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone you love is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you (advisedly/carefully).
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When 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 simple joy of a long walk.
One of my deepest beliefs is that God gives us dogs (and other domestic pets) to teach us things that God wants for us to know and practice.
The Holidays are quickly approaching. While they can be joyful occasions, they can also be stressful. Love one another as Christ (and your pet) loves you.
Daily prayer: “Dear God, please help me to be just half the person my dog thinks I am.”
In Christian Love,
