A Person Can Learn A Lot From A Dog

A person can learn a lot from a dog, 
even a loopy one like ours. 
Marley taught me about living each day 
with unbridled exuberance and joy, 
about seizing the moment 
and following your heart. 
He taught me to appreciate 
the simple things-a walk in the woods, 
a fresh snowfall, 
a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. 
And as he grew old and achy, 
he taught me about optimism 
in the face of adversity.
Mostly, he taught me about friendship
and selflessness and, above all else,
unwavering loyalty. ― John Grogan
