Hold grudges or forgive. Considering the fact that holding a hard feeling can weigh you down emotionally and be bad for your health, it’s a lot more pleasurable to just keep moving on with life. In any case, you’re the one who it will affect. Chose to be happy and forgive. Life is what you make it and it can be beautiful and complete.
Who is most often the first one to come to you when you are crying or feeling upset? Your dog. They are often the first to comfort you in the first place. Having a dog is a great way to show you or your kids how good and rewarding it is to be kind and take care of others. Small acts that enrich your life. Remember that others around are going through their own issues and complications. Be there for others.

That is how your dog loves you. So be nice and remember how hurt your ¡loving’ pet will be if treat them badly, love them back as much? Then think about the people close to you with the same warmth and kindness?
Live in the moment
Dogs live each moment to their fullest. They don’t think about yesterday or about tomorrow. They listen to their main needs of the moment. Whether it is to play ball, sleep or eat, they enjoy what’s happening at the moment and make it count. We have a lot to learn about living this way. So enjoy, well, …. everything you do.
Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Is your dog unhappy with their appearance? Nope! They appreciate what they have and happily live with it. What about us? Humans come in all shapes and sizes too, but most of the time, we wish we’d look another way and feel the need to change our appearance or personality. Imitate your dog and make the best of your own idiosyncrasies. Learn to love the things that define you and it will give you instant peace of mind.
