What our Pets teach us
All of us who have pets know the wonderful joy that they bring to our lives. In our case, being greeted by our three loving Golden Retrievers when we come home each day wipes away every worry or stress we had. Even if we go out to the store for an hour, upon our return we are greeted as though we had been gone for a week.
I often say to myself why can’t I be like that. Yes I’m generally a friendly person but if my wife goes out for a short trip to the store, when she comes home is my response a simple “Hi need help with the groceries” or do I greet her, with the same happiness, sans the tail, that our dogs show.
Come to think of it, if I did greet her every time she came home like our Golden’s do, she would have me carted off to the nearest psychologist but there is a happy medium.
I can learn alot about how to treat my wife, friends and family from our pets. They teach us loyalty, how to explore, how to forgive. That is an amazing one. And when they find something to play with they can show us how to be silly throwing caution to the wind.
Trust me I have learned that occasionally being silly is a good thing. One day I may even attempt the tried and true dog method of running around the backyard real fast several times and then rolling around in the grass for several minutes. It’s fun to watch so I bet it has to be fun to do. I will get back to you on that one.
There are so many other things I can say about our beloved pets and how they teach us about life but instead I would like you the readers to do that. Please share with us, in the comment section below, what you have learned about life from your pets.
