Dog's Purpose In Life, (from a 6-year-old)
Being
a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish
Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their
little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were
hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of
cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and
offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their
home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought
it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They
felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The
next day, I felt the
familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane
seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered
if he understood what was going on.

Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away..

The
little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty
or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death,
wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than
human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, 'I know why.'

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.

He
said, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
life—like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The
six-year-old continued, “Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they
don't have to stay as long.”

Live simply
Love generously
Care
deeply
Speak kindly

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

· When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
· Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride
· Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
· Take 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
· Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough
· 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
· Being always grateful for each new day and for the blessing you have.

ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY! That's what dogs teach us...

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own -- Bryant

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” ― Wayne W. Dyer


To be persuasive, one must be believable;
To be believable, one must be credible;
To be credible, one must be truthful.
