people can learn from their dogs...
pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
others know when they've invaded your territory.
naps and stretch before rising.
romp and play daily.
with gusto and enthusiasm.
pretend to be something you're not.
what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them
on attention and let people touch you.
biting when a simple growl will do.
hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and
pout...run right back and make friends.
in the simple joy of a long walk.

and it also establishes a context for us to create our own list of
"Things dogs can learn from our people" in the near future.
