A Man's Best Friend

I seen this picture today on MSNBC "Animal Tracks" and it said "Paying respects"
A dog sits for a second consecutive day next to the grave of her owner who died in the week's catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero.
What loyal friends..... I believe dogs are great examples to follow: We could learn things like:
To always greet our loved ones with great enthusiasm when they come home.
Take lots of naps.
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 lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
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.

Just Be

(bē) v. to exist; have life; completely

From this moment forward…I stop the blame game and excuses. I am responsible for my life and for where I am today. I cannot blame the people and circumstances in my past, and I refuse to hide behind my past mistakes...
