Yes I have used this painting before , it is a painting of my sons dog. But it seemed the only painting I could use this morning. . I was asked today by a friend if I still had my dog. My last dog was out running with me and for some silly reason I decided to cut my run short. He thought I was heading the usual way and crossed the road in front of a fast moving car. I have regretted that so often in the days between then and now. I would love to have another dog but that will not happen.
I have written poems about my dog and may have shared it on here but not sure.
But this morning I was thinking about dogs and also about being a teacher. I was thinking what if the dog was the teacher what would the lessons be.
So here we go.
to be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest,practice obedience, but not in a subservient way.
Take naps and stretch before rising Run romp and play daily,. Do not take life too seriously
Thrive on attention and let people touch you. Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do. In other words keep your temper under control.
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. Life is too short to always be about things make time to just be.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout, run right back and make friends. Friends are too important to take umbrage at.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk, and e at with gusto and enthusiasm, let people know you are enjoying being there.
If what you want lies buried,dig until you find it.
There is no harm whatsoever in being just like a dog. Have a wonderful day.
