Lessons from the dog: How to live

Saw this lovely quote on the 366 Hearts Facebook page:

Remember, if a dog was the 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 ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you (Your lives that is)
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 your happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
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.
Most important…. Enjoy EVERY minute of EVERY day.

She’s posting an inspiring heart every day, initially for a year from Valentines Day 2012 to Valentines Day 2013, but now aiming to reach 1,000 hearts! There are some amazing images there and you’ll find one and think “that heart must have been drawn for me”.
