What we can learn from our dogs

Earlier this month, on a beautiful Sunday morning, my son and I went on the Hui ‘Ilio Dog Walk. The dogs were well-behaved, greeting each other politely, with only a few growls. They were eager to meet other dogs. People greeted each other with smiles; our dogs gave us a reason to talk with each other.

The dog walk was a friendly affair. It started casually, no one jostling for position, everyone walking at their own pace. There was no pressure to finish first. Everyone had fun. We were there for our dogs and to support the dog park.

We can learn a lot from our dogs:

* About health: Go for short walks. Enjoy your food. Drink lots of water. Get * lots of rest.
* About living: Stick your head out the window. Get outdoors. Smell the plumeria.
* About relationships: Be loyal to your family. Be happy when you see friends. Share your toys.
* About education: With discipline and treats, everyone can learn.
* About money: Friendly smiles and tail-wags are free.
* About politics: Everyone is potentially a friend.
* About personal responsibility: Clean up your own mess.

If you have a dog, what have you learned from your dog? What can pets teach us?
