My Boxers...

We should live a dog's life

I've come to the conclusion, and you dog people will understand this, everything I've learned about love, and much of what I've learned about life (or at least the life I want to live) I've learned from my dogs.

What better example of unconditional love is there? What do you think your spouse, partner or children would feel if you greeted them when they came home, with the same unmitigated joy that our dogs greet us? What would it be like, if we could suspend judgment and accept others as they appear to us? How would it feel to have an open and loving heart - all the time? What would it feel like to give, with no expectations of anything in return?

If we can emulate even a small portion of our dogs Joie de vivre, we'll be much the better for doing so.

Tomorrow, I will endeavor to act more like my dogs....

Ok, maybe not in all areas....
