1. They have taught me that the best love is unconditional. They never ask how much money I earn or how famous I am. They just love me the way I am and want me to love them. Pass it on.
2. My greyhounds are always glad to see me no matter how long or short I have been gone. We should treat each other the same way.
3. Prada and Groovy are nice to each other and very affectionate. They don’t carry grudges and they don’t stay mad for very long. The world should learn how to do that.
4. Greyhounds have boundaries. For example, Prada has her own bed and she hides treats there. If Groovy tries to lie down or steal a treat, Prada will let her know clearly to back off. People have boundaries too. We all have a favorite chair or coffee mug or desk. We should honor those boundaries: less drama that way.
5. They look out for each other. If one of them is injured and has to wear one of those neck collars to keep from licking the wound, the other dog will lick it for her. People should do that; lick each other’s wounds. It will help healing whatever hurts.
6. My greyhounds like to be petted or stroked. Don’t we all? We should all stroked each other by saying something nice or complementing each other - often.
7. Greyhounds don’t bark much. They can if there is danger or they want to warn me. Now days with all the social media, it seems people do a lot of excessive barking. We should learn to bark and complain less. All that excessive barking and complaining just creates tension and seldom solves anything. Give it a rest.
8. Even as old as Prada and Groovy are, they still like to run and play. They will race each other or play keep away with a toy. You are never too old to play.
9. If I hurt their feelings, they find a way to get even. They will find my shoe, a belt or a slipper and tear it up. People are the same way. If you hurt someone, they will get revenge when you least expect it so make amends.
10. Sarcasm is wasted on pets and people (click to tweet). It is the cruelest form of humor and best left alone.
