This is a discussion thread · 5 replies
Unlike humans, dogs do everything from the bottom of their heart, whether they wag the tail or bark. Have you ever seen a dog that suffers from the inferiority complex? Have you ever seen a dog that pretends to be someone he is not? I haven't. Emotion: smile Actually, there is a lot of natural life wisdom that we could learn from dogs. So, what is the simple dog wisdom? What your dog can teach you? Here is a brief summary of dog life lessons, and feel free to add more if you have thoughts about it!

- Give and accept affection, freely and often;
- When someone kindly prepares food for you, devour it smiling like it's the best meal you've ever eaten;
- Always be curious about the world around you, especially when new people come into it;
- Take naps;
- Forgive friends who don't have time to play;

Ruslana- When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body;
We often have bad mood or depressions but when something good happens we are rarely glad to the maximum. Dogs are absolutely different in this respect. Dogs can be 100% but 100% happy too. Humans can be 100% sad and 50% happy.

Good stuff by the way.
How come I missed this thread? Awesome one! This makes you realize that the main things in life are family & friends (human or animal), but not money, financial worries or snobbery.
