A quick sketch of the Chunkster “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie” 12″ x 9″charcoal on paper.
This study got me thinking about what I learn from dogs. I really appreciate waking up with Chunky; it makes me greet each new day. I love getting a few extra minutes with him nestled in my arm tail thumping, ears back, trying to lick my face. Here’s something I came across you might enjoy.
Things We Learn From Dogs
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
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.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
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.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
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 joys of a long walk.
