Great Advice.

Hi All ~~ I hope you all have had a lovely weekend. I haven’t done

much today, but have had a restful day which is needed once in a

while. Tomorrow will be a different kettle of fish ~~ it is my

fortnightly shopping trip. I wonder what I will forget this time.

<><><><><><>

Great Advice, if only we could practice it everyday....

If a dog was 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 in 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 pout..! run 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.

I AM THANKFUL FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE THINKING OF ME!

SEND THIS TO PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT. . I JUST DID.

I sent Peter a small gift

with the following words on it ……

<><><><>

NOW IS THE TIME.

To seek more rainbows,

to take more chances

and to follow more dreams.

To smile more often,

to sing more songs,

to wish on more stars,

to laugh more and to love more

And to treasure the wonder in every day.

<><> I liked it ! <><>

I worked with a man once who had the following posted above his desk, and your post reminded me of it:

Consider this:
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches & pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friends limited education and never correct him,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics,
Then, my friend, You are ALMOST as good as your dog!
