Things We Can Learn From a Franciscan Dog

Pause at the open door, embrace the day, and then go forth with zest and supreme happiness.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Stop often to contemplate Sister Bug and to inhale the smells of God's earth.
Greet Brother Squirrel and falling leaves with gusto.
Allow the experience of fresh air, Brother Sun, and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Eat with zeal and enthusiasm.
Be loyal.
Lift up your face to the heavens and make joyful noises.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
No matter how often you're scolded, run right back and make friends.
Be liberal in bestowing kisses and affection; let people touch you.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
