What I Learned About Love I Learned From My Dog

What I Learned About Love, I Learned From My Dog

 

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride together. 

 

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

 

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

 

When you want treats, practice obedience.

 

Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.

 

Take naps together and stretch before rising.

 

Run, romp and play daily.

 

Be loyal.

 

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.

 

Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.

 

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 together.

 

Love each other unconditionally.

Falling In Love Is Like Owning A Dog

First of all, it’s a big responsibility.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.


On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you’re walking down the street late at night and you have a leash on love
ain’t no one going to mess with you.


Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?

On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes and makes funny noises.


Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.

Love doesn’t like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.


It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.

Is love good all the time? No. No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.

Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.


Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose, not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don’t you ever do that again!

Sometimes love just wants to go out for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise. It will run you around the block
and leave you panting, breathless. Pull you in different directions
at once, or wind itself around and around you until you’re all wound up and you cannot move.

 

But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love stop and talk to each other on the street.

Throw things away and love will bring them back, again, and again, and again.

But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.

The Duck And The Kangaroo

Said the Duck to the Kangaroo,

"Good gracious! how you hop!

Over the fields and the water too,

As if you never would stop!

My life is a bore in this nasty pond,

And I long to go out in the world beyond!

I wish I could hop like you!"

Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

"Please give me a ride on your back!"

Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

"I would sit quite still, and say nothing but ’quack’,

The whole of the long day through!

And we’d go to the Dee, and the Jelly Bo Lee,

Over the land, and over the sea; -

Please take me a ride! O do!"

Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

Said the Kangaroo to the Duck,

"This requires some little reflection;

Perhaps on the whole it might bring me luck,

And there seems but one objection,

Which is, if you’ll let me speak so bold,

Your feet are unpleasantly wet and cold,

And would probably give me the roo-

Matiz!" said the Kangaroo.

Said the Duck, "As I sate on the rocks,

I have thought that over completely,

And I bought four pairs of worsted socks

Which fit my web-feet neatly.

And to keep out the cold I’ve bought a cloak,

And every day a cigar I’ll smoke,

All to follow my own dear true

Love of a Kangaroo!"

Said the Kangaroo, "I’m ready!

All in the moonlight pale;

But to balance me well, dear Duck, sit steady!

And quite at the end of my tail!"

So away they went with a hop and a bound,

And they hopped the whole world three times round;

And who so happy,  oh who,

As the Duck and the Kangaroo?
