There are so many things that we can learn from our dogs. The most important lesson a dog can teach us is to live each day to the fullest. Every morning I know that the moment I open my eyes, my dog is ready to pounce! He greets me with a 100 lb “thunk” on the bed, lays across me in his version of a hug (that I couldn’t get out of if I tried), and gives his award-winning smile with a bit of drool, all in attempt to coax me out of bed to start the day. If only we all could start our days with such fervor, not knowing what the day will bring but ready and eager to start it and make it our best.
