Things I’ve Learned from my dog Ozzy:

Ozfest n Injustica

  • Never pass up the opportunity to sit shotgun for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to make you smile.
  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
  • Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
  • Take naps and stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp and play daily.
  • Eat every meal with gusto and enthusiasm.
  • Be loyal.
  • Yawn often; it makes your mouth look capable of hurting someone – just in case.
  • 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 just “be”..
  • Thrive on attention and let people rub you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
  • On cold days, sprawl out across the couch like it’s sport and you’re the Champion.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body until it seems possible that you might lift-off.
  • 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 joys of a long walk or a game of tag in the grass.

    Ozzy was a wise old soul. We could all learn from the knowledge he imparted on you. Live and love life with gusto unmatched each and every day. A dog’s life is so much more than it seems if we just pay attention to the things they say without words. I love this post.
