How to Live a Dog's Life
By Joanne Brokaw
In today's hectic, economically unstable, electronically plugged-in culture, few of us live a dog's life, but maybe we'd be happier if we took a few life lessons from our faithful canine companions.
For more than two years, I've been observing Scout (pictured above), my 3-year-old Border collie, as he went from fearful puppy to confident (albeit quirky) dog. Dogs offer humans loyalty and companionship, and all they ask for in return is shelter, food, and love. It's not a complicated existence, but it is enviable for simplicity and peacefulness.
Here are 10 lessons I've learned about life from my dog.
