If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff 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.

  • When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.!

  • Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

  • Take naps.

  • Stretch before rising.

  • Run, romp, and play daily.

  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back in 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.

  • 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 joy of a long walk.

  • Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

  • 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.
We miss you Brutus; you were the true master.
