To dogs life is amazing! They live in the moment and find joy in the smallest of things. For my dog, Jenson, running around a field is amazing!
He can't understand the stresses of the world or how humans can get bored, so here are his wise words for a happy life:
- When loved ones come home, run to meet them, they are the most important thing in the world.
- Be loyal.
- Enjoy a long walk.
- Start the day with a good stretch.
- Take naps.
- Play daily, take time for fun.
- When happy, dance around and wag your whole body.
- Say hello to everyone (but don't sniff their butts!) Acknowledging someone and smiling can make their day.
- Never pretend to be something you’re not.
- When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and snuggle.
BE MORE DOG 🐶
These are some of my observations of Jenson and his friends but I also have been inspired by the poem, Be More Dog by Rev Kenny Borthwick.
We may have more going on in our lives to contend with, compared to our canine companions, but that makes it even more important to find moments of joy.
Before I go I want to share a couple of Instagram accounts that make me smile. If you love dogs you have to check out these:
