Dog Thoughts To Live By

If a dog was the teacher you would learn things 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..
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
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.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
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 nuzzle them gently.


Have a great day!
Janet & Murphy

Hi sweetie,
long time no talk! LOL
It seems that I have missed your lovely competition!
Never mind... Better luck next time!
I can see that you have been busy, busy, busy... maybe that`s why you are feeling so tired!
The same thing here... comes to 9:00 p.m and I`m exausted, and then I can`t seem to get out to bed either in the mornings!
Speacially now... since its getting really cold!
Anyway... Just to let you know... I will be sending my 3 little "Treasures" over to yours on Hallowen!
You will be able to recognize them... as I have been trainning them all week...
Mine are the ones that instead of saying "Thanks You", they will be the ones who will be saying...
Can we have some more...PLEASEeeeeeeeee! Lol
To you and your lovely family... your lovely dog included!

Thanks for stopping by. About Barbara J, Your telling me she's great, I feel so honored she even mentioned me in her Blog. I love your Doggie Tale, I'm passing it on to my wonderful son who rescued two dogs this year and loves them to death.

Hi Janet,

Those are pearls of wisdom. Tommy is much smarter than me (most of the time).

Have a wonderful Halloween. Don't eat too much candy. I can't wait to get those bags opened.
