America: I wish that more people would learn something from dogs….BE A DOG!


After a particularly stressful week, I had the pleasure of attending the Novi Pet Expo last Sunday. While there I was watching the Rock -N- Roll K9 Performance Team and had an epiphany.

When dogs meet other dogs they don’t care if the dog has black fur, gray fur, brown fur, white fur, if they have mixed color fur. Dogs don’t care if they are pure bred or “mixes.” They don’t care about what country they each emigrated from.  They sniff the butts of the opposite sex and the same-sex.  They don’t care. They just ARE. They do their jobs. They come together. (I apologize for my  wobbly video below, watch for the last dog that has a “thank you” sign)

I was overcome with pride and emotion when I watched these adorable dogs parading around the ring. This was just what I needed after a week of filthy attacks that were being shot like missiles from  “friends” as well as “foes.” I admit that I shot off quite a few myself.  The entire week had made me physically ill, I couldn’t think, couldn’t function, that is, until Sunday when I observed these wonderful dogs working as a TEAMMy “take-away?”

 I wish that more people

would learn something from dogs

  6. that is so true… we would solve problems without bad words and without throwing with dirt… and we would wagg with our tails instead to talk for 87 hours… think I throw my hat in the election next year, seems a canini-date is better than all the candidates we have by now…

  9. That would be great. They would get off the streets. Quit rioting and destroying their neighborhoods. Quit killing each other. Quit assaulting each other. Quit killing cops. Start being kind. Start setting the example they claim to represent.

    Have a woof woof day Dakota. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

  16. Dogs or cats don’t judge and we can learn much from them. We need more pawsitive experiences like this to focus on. xo

  17. Thanks so much! Dog wisdom is something we can/should all learn from.
