Life Lessons from Animals (for me, dogs)

  • Sometimes it just takes a kind word (and a belly rub) to rebuild trust
  • When you’re scared, reach out to those around you. (Maybe hide between their legs instead of under the bed?)
  • It doesn't take much to be happy: shelter, food, companionship, purpose 
  • Go out and enjoy the sunshine
  • Go out and enjoy the rain (unless it’s lightning out--then watch from the window in amazement)
  • Go out and enjoy the snow (it is fluffy, after all)
  • When you’re happy, show it (let your tail wag)
  • Snuggle up to the ones you love
  • When it matters, go after it (the big stick)
  • Take a nap
  • You don’t always have to say something to get your message across (actions, not words)
  • It doesn't have to be fancy to be worthwhile or fun (see video below) 
  • Life is simple: love lots

What are some of your favorite lessons learned from animals?
