Some people have dogs. I have a Dawg. She is a bit like me sometimes- lacking in finess and not always so couth. However, there are definitely some things that I need to emulate from her:
Everyone is not in your pack, but protect the ones who are. Forgive them always and let them have no doubt that you love them.
Everyone has needs and weaknesses. Ask for what you need. It’s a gift to others to be able to help you
Don’t be afraid to look silly. Who cares? Be willing to celebrate, every day.
Life is so short and uncertain. Savor every moment. Lick up every morsel and try to find more.
