(Chopin passed…tragically on Sunday, 12/29/13, after a great day at the beach)
A dog’s tail never lies…ever and you can tell exactly what he’s thinking my looking at his tail.
Every day is precious…and when you least expect it, God calls you home.
Always be happy to see those who you love…let them know every time you see them how glad you are to see them (even if it’s only been a few moments).
Always be ready to defend your family, with your life if necessary.
Sometimes a loud bark is more effective than a bite.
Hug your dog more…he likes it also.
All you really need in life to have fun, is a good attitude (and someone to play ball with).
A kiss (or several slobbery licks) can make the world right again.
Food is good food, especially if it’s a treat.
You’re never too old to play.
Take a walk and notice everything even if you’ve seen it before, something might have changed.
If you run until your legs are rubber, that’s the definition of a good day.
Sometimes you’ve got to be patient with those who love you.
Family is not the blood that runs through your veins, but the love that flows through your heart.
All dogs do go to Heaven…(even if this isn’t Biblically true, which it isn’t, it makes me feel better and I still pray that I’ll get to play with all my pets in Heaven).
Being loved by a dog is the 3rd best experience in life, second only to being loved by your family and God.
Thank you Chopin, my giant puppy for teaching me all of this and so much more…
