I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Lessons we can learn from a dog

on February 11, 2013

10 baby yellow retrieversWe may be more intelligent than dogs, but they can certainly teach us a lot about life.  Dogs are very loyal and they understand the meaning of unconditional love.  Here are some lessons that we could learn from a dog:

  1. Love – It doesn’t matter what happens, always show love.
  2. Joy – Fill each day with joy and don’t be in a bad mood.
  3. Enthusiasm – Get excited about life.
  4. Exercise – Walk, run, jump.
  5. Support – Always help each other.
  6. Loyalty – Be there for your family and friends.
  7. Rest – Get enough sleep, take naps.
  8. Relax – Sit down and take a break.
  9. Be yourself – Don’t compare yourself to others, be happy with who you are.
  10. Don’t give up – Keep trying until you succeed

If you don’t think a dog loves you unconditionally, think about this.  If you locked your dog and your wife/husband in the bathroom for an hour, which one would be glad to see you?  (Just think about the answer, don’t actually try it.  The result could be disastrous).

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me they are the role model for being alive.  ~Gilda Radner

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you’re feeling blue is that he doesn’t try to find out why.  ~Unknown

Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.  ~Corey Ford

If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.  ~Phil Pastoret

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.  ~Andy Rooney

Dogs have given us their absolute all.  We are the center of their universe.  We are the focus of their love and faith and trust.  They serve us in return for scraps.  It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.  ~Roger Caras
