Important Lessons I’ve Learned from my dogs
I have 2 awesome dogs that make everyday fun and special. I can’t imagine life without my dogs, somehow my furry friends feel like my best buddies some days.
You can learn so much from owning a dog, they are great teachers and show such great love. I think having a pet can teach you great lessons that make you a better person. I am sure anyone who is a pet owner can relate.
Treat everyone like they are special-My dogs practically throw a ticker tape parade every time I come home. Now I could have gone out just to the mailbox and I am received the same way, even though I was gone for a few minutes. That makes me feel loved and special. No human has ever got that excited when I was gone for 2 minutes and came back. Maybe as humans we are not capable of having that much excitement that often but I do think we can make more of an effort. It would be great if we could make an effort daily to greet people with genuine enthusiam.
Take time to have some fun and play- You can just see the excitement of my dogs when they get to run, play and go for walks. Working is great but as the saying goes, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Take some time off to play and enjoy yourself.
Live in the moment- Dogs live for the here and now and have no way of getting excited for the future of living in the past. They take everyday and moment as it comes and adjust themselves to it. We can learn to be very happy by living in the moment and not dwelling on the past or spending everyday looking forward. It is good to have plans but life is too short to not enjoy and relish living in the moment.
Don’t be afraid to show your emotions- If you are happy do not be afraid to show it. It is so fun to watch a happy dog squirm, shake, wag their tail(even if it broke a whole set of glasses) and do a little dance of joy. Let loose and do not be afraid to show your emotions.
Do not pass judgement- Dogs love you no matter if you are in pj’s or a business suit, they don’t care how you look. They don’t care about your past, how much money you make, what size you are, what kind of car you drive(as long as they can stick their heads out of the window) or what neighborhood you live in. They love you unconditionally no matter what and do not judge you by how you look or what you own. We could take a lesson from this and learn to not judge people by what they posses or how they look.
Be loyal- Dogs are so loyal and loving to their owners. The show gratitude by their affection and sloppy kisses. Be loyal and kind to others and show your gratitude and affection.
Be slow to anger and quick to love- My dogs are so good to put up with our son crawling over and playing with them. They don’t get angry over little things or really anything for that matter. They give you attention and kisses at every chance they get. This is a great way to live life, loving as much as possible and not letting little things get you angry.
