Things we can learn from our Kerry

Thanks to Kathleen C. McDonough and Linda Winkler;


  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
  • Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
  • Take naps and stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp and play daily.
  • Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout…run right back and make friends.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  • Stay inside when the weather is lousy. Relax and watch tv or read.
  • Take pleasure in scratching. Scratch leisurely and for a long time.
  • Take baths only when absolutely necessary. Wash feet in between times.
  • Enjoy seeing the world go by. Become a window watcher.
  • Cozy up to your Mom or Dad when you feel lonely. Give kisses without being asked.
  • Ride in the car with the windows open. Let your ears whizz out the windows.
  • Bark at all cats. Who *needs* them anyway?
