If A Dog Were The Teacher

If A Dog Were The Teacher

“If a dog were the teacher you would learn stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout… run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and them gently.” ~Author Unknown

Little Biscuit is our little teacher, a Buddha, in many ways.  Biscuit has shown us how to live in the present moment.  Biscuit is always living in the present moment, as he does not know any different.  He is not concerned about the past or the future.  It takes very little to make Biscuit happy.  He is so thrilled when he gets a few treats (his kibble); and he wants and loves to be included in whatever we are doing — spanning from just sitting with us to going on vacation, which he loved.  Biscuit is very persistent and determined, and he never gives up.  Biscuit is very loyal.  In fact, he is the most loyal living being I have ever met.  Most of all, Biscuit makes each day special just by being him!  We feel very lucky to have met little Biscuit.
