A Girl's Best Friend

Maybe you're not as big of a dog person as I am, but I think dogs teach us every single important thing in life. Dogs, while they are not human, they can teach us how to be "good" humans. Good dog, good human. :)

First off, how many people do you know that greet you at the door, tail waging practically off their butt, grinning ear to ear if only they could... every time you come home?

No matter how many times you yell at them, "spank" 'em, forget to pet them, forget to walk them, anything... they still love you. They still come and lick your face when you cry, they still greet you at the door, they still protect you. They're your best friend no matter what. 

Dogs don't care what you look like, what kind of car you drive, how much money you make, who you love, what you do... they take you as you are. They love you and they never quit until their short live is gone. I imagine they love you long after that too.

I don't know about most dogs, but whispers of a walk, putting on a tennis shoe... this sends her into a wild frenzy. How many people get that excited to go outside and walk? Or do anything for that matter? Dogs accept that they can lay around all day and look forward to the little things: a table scrap, a long walk, a scratch under the ears. If only humans had that kind of joy and contentedness.

So take these lessons from your dog and dogs everywhere: love freely and always, forgive quickly, find joy in the little things, and live every second the way you want to, hopefully with a great companion by your side.
