10 Life Lessons My Dog Taught Me
Looks Can Be Deceiving
One morning Scout found an apple-shaped Christmas ornament that had been under the couch for months. It looked like a ball, so Scout licked the red lacquer off the faux fruit until there was Styrofoam. I didn't find out about his discovery until hours later, when I stepped in a puddle of bright pink dog vomit and found a very sick puppy hiding under my desk.
Like Scout, I've often been deceived by things that look attractive but turn out to be bad for me. Slick ads, promises of greener grass on the other side of the fence, and the sparkle of expensive things have led me down the path to heartache more times than I can count. Just because something looks good doesn't mean it's good for me.
