Day #121 – Be more dog.

Happy dog.

Happy dog.

Today I was really organised. I set aside time to write. Tommy’s taken the kids out to the park. I’m home alone with the cat, bathing in the sunshine through the window. Just ate a spoon of hummus. Not a bad day. Even got some flowers on the table. Feeling super focused and determined. Come on Autumn. Let’s have you.

Flicking through some books for inspiration I found a passage that was just perfect. I could re word it, add to it, fluff it up a bit. But I just don’t think it’s necessary.

Quite simply. Be more dog.

‘If a dog were your teacher

These are some of the lessons you might learn…

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them

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


When it’s in your best interest

practice obedience

Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory

Take naps and 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 lay under a shady tree

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

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm

Stop when you have had enough

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.’
