A dog’s love

Recently I read an article from Cesar Millan who was quoted as saying, “There’s a saying that goes, “If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.” That saying by the way, is incorrectly attributed to Lao Tzu for those keeping track of such things-even Cesar noted that. If you are interested on the history of that and other Lao Tzu misquotes, check out this website. 🙂

I’m guessing you could add to that last part…living with a dog.  We certainly know that dogs bring us peace, joy and happiness.  They ask for nothing in return and give everything of their soul. They don’t look back or forward, they just stay in the present. Some day I’m hope to be half as good as my dog thinks I am. Till then, I’ll try to keep it real in glorious Spring.

    So true! I sometimes get caught up in issues of the past, or worries about the future; but I do try to embrace the present with lessons learned from my dogs. And it’s certainly easier to find peace when one is unencumbered by fears and regrets.

    They ask for nothing in return… Now, hold on a minute. I’ll grant they don’t speak up and specify their needs or provide a Power Point presentation complete with bullet points, but I can assure that our spoiled, wee Furbeastie does quite well at demanding special treats and treatment. It’s all worth it, of course,
