Annie's Guide to Life

I'm sure most of you have seen these tips before, maybe a million times, but today they seem appropriate. Time to get back to the basics.


With a little help from Annie

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.

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 on 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.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

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.

Great! We humans would benefit from following Annie's Guide to Life. You forgot one: Go crazy when you smell bacon and enjoy eating food like it's your last meal.

Annie is a wise dog!

Btw: She take naps in the same position my dog taked!

Oh, a thuing you should add: When your favorite human falls asleep with a ham sandwich in his hands... Do not let the food be wasted and eat it yourself!

Annie is quite the philosopher. We should all take her advice to heart. Thanks for sharing her wisdom.

Thanks, everybody. I'll be sure to pass along your comments to her. :) She had gum surgery yesterday and is a bit under the weather so this will help.
