If a dog were the teacher you would learn stuff 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 ecstasy.

· When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.

· Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

· Take naps.

· 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 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 buy into the guilt thing and right back and make friends.

· Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

· Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

· Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.

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

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