Dogs Can Teach Us About Life – A Tuesday List of 10

List of 10

Today’s edition of the Tuesday List of Ten is suggested by something near and dear to my heart, Dogs are considered to be man’s best friend. Could that be because they offer so much? This edition of the Tuesday List of 10 is:

Things Dogs Do That People Should Emulate

  1. Drink lots of water.
  2. Get lots of exercise to include long walks.
  3. Get plenty of sleep, take a nap when needed and stretch when you get up.
  4. Show your excitement and greet people with all the joy you can demonstrate.
  5. Explore your environment.
  6. Find out what you like in life, and then do it repeatedly.
  7. Accept love. There is great satisfaction in being touched and cuddled.
  8. Train the people around you and your life will be good.
  9. Be loyal without judging. See and hear and know everything and be trusted to not repeat it.
  10. Sometimes it is enough to just be there for someone.

I am keeping the list brief and to the point. I think no further explanation is needed.

What are other lessons that we can learn from the animals in our lives?

Happy Tuesday.

    That is the perfect list that we, as people, should adhere to. Wouldn’t the world be a wonderful place if we all followed this list?

    That is a great list and spot on. No. 6 though also includes, until you drive those around you crazy. I have a border collie.

      So true about #6. Both people and dogs can drive us crazy if they constantly want to repeat the same things over and over, especially if they rely on us to do it with them each time.

    great list – and they are quiet, attentive listeners who don’t feel obliged to give advice when you are having a bad day.
