I've taught my dog how to do tricks like speak, shake a paw and roll over. He appeases me and happily does these tricks making me feel proud that he's so clever.
Here are a few things my dog is still trying to teach me, however. He hopes one day I'll master them as he has mastered the 'High Five'. But if I don't he understands because, after all, I'm only human.
1) Live in the moment.
2) Don't hold a grudge.
3) Be grateful for everything.
4) Protect those you love.
5) Food should be loved, not feared.
6) Exercise is fun and exciting.
7) Rest when you need it.
8) Chill out.
9) Love unconditionally.
10) It's easy to be happy. Just be.
