spenser: a day in the life of a labrador retriever

"Dogs are our links to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring, it was peace.--- Milan Kundera"

Things We Can Learn From A Dog

A friend from work gave me this poem. She's not sure who the author is but I thought it was really good.

Never pass the opportunity to go for a joyride
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstacy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's 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.
East with gusto and enthusiasm.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig unti you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay 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.
Deligh in the simple jog of a long walk.

Spenser's 1st Halloween

Since I'm a chocolate labrador, my dad Neil decided that I will be like a Hershey's chocolate bar as my costume. We were going to surprise Mom when she come's home. The costume lasted for less than 5 minutes before it collapsed.
