A Man or a hen? / Happiness / Blogthing arrggh!

Hi There,

This came from the Inspireme site and being someone who
loves dogs it appealed to me... I hope it does for you .

When loved ones come home always run to greet them
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 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

Thrive on attention and let people touch you
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do
On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass
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 Eat with gusto and enthusiasm Stop when you have had enough 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.

awwwww !

How do you define Happiness ?

I am in desperate need of help -- or I'll go crazy. We're living in a single room -- my wife, my children and my in-laws. So our nerves are on edge, we yell and scream at one another. The room is a hell."

"Do you promise to do whatever I tell you?" said the Master gravely.

"I swear I shall do anything."

"Very well. How many animals do you have?"

"A cow, a goat and six chickens."

"Take them all into the room with you. Then come back after a week."

The disciple was appalled. But he had promised to obey! So he took the animals in. A week later he came back, a pitiable figure, moaning, "I'm a nervous wreck. The dirt! The stench! The noise! We're all on the verge of madness!"

"Go back," said the Master, "and put the animals out."

The man ran all the way home. And came back the following day, his eyes sparkling with joy. "How sweet life is! The animals are out. The home is a Paradise, so quiet and clean and roomy!"

lom caught me the other day again with a Blogthing - arrrgghh... So, how about you?
Blogthings: Waste Time at Work!

Your Christmas is most like :
"A Very Brady Christmas."

For you, it's all about sharing times with family.
Even if you all get a bit cheesy at times.

Cheers from the land of the Tartan, Love Kate xxx.
