“Learning From Fido” (or, the real gurrrrus online)

If dogs were teachers we would all learn a
great deal about life, love, and work including
the internet.

I received a simple e-mail message from one
of my online friends recently that pointed out
some of the traits of dogs which are positive.
admirable, and worthy of imitation.

For example: Dogs always run to greet you
when you come home and they are happy to
see you. No questions about where you have
been or why you were late. They are just very
happy that you are home.

They are great at knowing when to take a nap
or on warm days they know when to stop and
lie back in the grass and relax.

One of our Poms that we had was good at
reminding me when it was time for a break from
the computer by jumping up on my leg for some

On hot days, they drink lots of water and find
a nice shade tree to get under.

When they are happy, they just dance around
and wag their entire bodies.

No matter how often they are scolded, they
don’t bear grudges…they just run right back
and make friends.

Most dogs will avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. ( Could this be applied to some
people’s over-reaction to spam messages ?)

Dogs like to run, romp and play daily, and yet
they can find delight in the simple joy of a long
walk with you.

They can eat with a great deal of gusto and
enthusiasm, but stop when they have had

They are loyal.

They never pretend to be something that they
are not. ( gurrrus…maybe ?)

If they want something and it lies buried, they
simply dig until they find it.

When someone is having a bad day, they can
be silent, sit close by and nuzzle gently.

Well, wouldn’t life online and off be simpler and
better for all if we adopted many of the qualities that
we find in our dogs ?

Hoping that you have a GRRREAT day !

Best of luck in your online efforts .
