Here’s one of life’s important lessons that you can learn from your dog: How to appreciate little things.
This is one of my favorite sound bytes from the “My Doggie Says…” show. In it, Dean Koontz, the famous author, describes how, at one time in his life, his Golden Retriever, Trixie, helped him see the world in a completely different and wondrous way. In Dean’s words, Trixie “made the familiar fresh again.” She helped him see “great beauty in mundane scenes.” He goes on to say, “Trixie reawakened in me an awareness of the mystery that’s woven into the warp and weft of everything we perceive…”
I really love this clip (2:28). It’s one of the best examples of the spiritual connection that can exist between a human and a dog. A great example of a lesson you can learn from a dog.
