Peter Drucker said: The most important thing in communications is to hear what isn’t being said. Do you have a dog as a member of your family? Have you ever carefully observed your dog’s habits over several hours?
You’ll probably notice many good habits and social skills that you could learn from. If your dog was a teacher, he or she would have you learn the following 10 great lessons:
Dog habits … always stretch just after rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Another great pet dog story: The Story of Tank the Dog or Is It Reggie?
When loved ones come home, always come and greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a fun ride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure joy.
Appreciate attention and let get close with you … touching is OK.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
Delight in the joys of simple things … like a nice long walk.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You should surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
Remember it is never too late to be who you might have become.
