If dogs were teachers :p we would learn stuff like:

1. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
2. Never pass up the opportunity to go for ajoyride.
3. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure
4. When it is in your best interest -- practice obedience.
5. Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
6. Take naps and stretch before rising.
7. Run, romp, and play daily.
8. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
9. Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.
10. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass. On hot days, drink
lots of water
and lay under a shady tree.
11. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
12. No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and
pout. . .
run right back and make friends.
13. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
14. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
15. Be loyal.
16. Never pretend to be something you're not.
17. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
18. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle
them gently.

Sounds like good ieas for a lot of us.

There is only one cure for baldness. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine.

To be honest with you I never thought of this before:

I wonder what goes through his mind when he sees
us peeing in his water bowl.

I am only going on trees in my backyard from now on!
