All I really Need to know....

All I Really Need to Know I Learned from my Dog

1. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
2. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
3. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
4. Take naps and stretch before rising.
5. Run, romp, and play daily.
6. Be loyal.
7. Never pretend to be something you're not.
8. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
9. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
10. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
11. Thrive on affection and let people touch you - enjoy back rubs and pats on your neck.
12. When you leave your yard, make it an adventure.
13. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
14. No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout - run right back and make friends.
15. Bond with your pack.
16. On cold nights, curl up in front of a crackling fire.
17. When you're excited, speak up.
18. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
19. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

For the cat owners out there..
All I Really need to know I learned from my cat
1. Life is hard, then you nap.
2. Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
3. When in doubt, cop an attitude.
4. Variety is the spice of life: one day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
5. Climb your way to the top--that's why drapes are there.
6. Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
7. Find your place in the sun--especially if it happens to be on that nice pile of warm, clean laundry.
8. Make your mark in the world--or at least spray in each corner.
9. When eating out think nothing of sending back your meal twenty or thirty times
10. If you're not receiving enough attention, try knocking over several expensive antique lamps.
11. Always give generously--a small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care."
12. When you go out into the world, remember: being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.
