After the devasting earthquake that hit Japan this month, weve been thinking about how important it is to not take anything for granted. Momo lives so simply, we always know when shes happy, sleepy, hungry - even when she is feeling a little fiesty. She made us realize that there is so much we can learn from our dogs. Here is our list of the top ten lessons our dogs teach us.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Enjoy the little things; take naps, roll in the mud, run in circles and savor tasty treats.
When youre happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Be loyal and dont hold grudges. Live in the moment.
With how busy our lives get, its easy to forget how fortunate we really are. There are thousands of animals in Japan that need our help. If youre able to, consider donating to a legitimate cause - check out Global Pets for more infomation.
