Bau: What Humans Can Learn From Dogs

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.

Greet people with joy.

Be excited about little treats.

Slow down and smell the flowers.

Go for long walks.

Be curious about everything.

Be loyal.

There’s always an opportunity to explore.

Sleep as much as you like.

  1. You have a lot of wisdom, Bau! I think we all could learn a lot from dogs. I also love it that you dogs live in the moment. You don’t obsess about the past, and you don’t sacrifice today worrying about the future. That’s a very healthy way to live.

  2. Thank you for sharing!!… the words by Gene Hill come to mind:.. 🙂

    He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
    My other ears that hear above the winds.
    He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.

    He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being:
    By the way he rests against my leg
    By the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile
    By the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
    (I think it makes him sick with worry when he
    is not along to care for me.)

    When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
    When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
    When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
    When I am a fool, he ignores it.
    When I succeed, he brags.
    Without him, I am only another person.
    With him, I am all-powerful.
    He is loyalty itself.
    He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
    With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.
    He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
    His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
    His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.
    He has promised to wait for me… whenever…wherever–in case I need him.
    And I expect I will–as I always have.
    He is just my dog.
    (Author Gene Hill…)

    Until we meet again,…
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)


  3. Such wisdom to share with us silly humans! When will we learn, eh? Greeting people with joy – it sounds so easy yet we are often far too rushed? Yay! I love opportunities to explore and we should always take them – and without any feelings of guilt that our time is better spent on other activities!
