Charlie’s Dog Lessons for People


Charlie’s Dog Lessons for People

  • Love unconditionally
  • Take a walk outside every day (even if it is raining and your Mom keeps singing “It’s a Rainy Day… It’s raining outside, and we can’t go out and play.”  It’s only water, and it shakes right off!)
  • Forgive quickly and easily
  • Play every day (and make your family play with you!)
  • Be loyal and faithful
  • Keep digging until you find what you are looking for
  • Accept treats with gratitude
  • Greet guests and strangers lovingly
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat all of your dinner
  • Trust and follow your instincts
  • Take naps
  • Bark only when necessary
  • Appreciate a simple life
  • Be a best friend

  1. I hope you don’t mind but I have Re-blogged your post. My first ever Re-Blog. Charlie Dog makes a lot of sense – more than most humans do in my opinion. Well done Charlie Dog for passing round the good advice. Ask your human for some extra treats – you deserve them.

  2. What a great post!!! what people could learn from their pets.
    I loved each one of these Jodi. Appreciating, the simple core basics of life….. not the ‘gottahaves’…. SO important. The other one I think most of us, put in the attic is trusting our gut, intuition because I guess its just not polite to think those things eh?!!
    Charlie, you are looking handsome as always, hugs from ‘auntie debi’ in Oz 🙂 cheers, Debi
