Why do dogs live less than people??

No photo description available.

Here’s the answer:

Being a vet, I was called to examine a 13-year-old Irish dog named Belker.

The dog’s family, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little 6-year-old Shane were close to Belker and expected a miracle.

I tested the dog and found out he was dying of cancer. I told the family I couldn’t do anything for him and offered to do the euthanasia procedure at home.

The next day, I felt the familiar feeling in my throat when Belker was surrounded by family.

Shane seemed so quiet, petting the dog for the last time and I was wondering if he would understand what was going on. In a few minutes, the animal fell peacefully sleeping to never wake up.

The child seemed to accept Belker’s transition without difficulty. We sat for a moment wondering why the unfortunate fact that dog life is shorter than human beings.

Shane, who had been listening closely, said, “I know why.”

What he said next surprised me: I had never heard a more heartwarming explanation than this. This moment changed my way of seeing life.

He said: “People come into the world to learn to live a good life, like loving others all the time and being a good person, eh? well, as dogs are already born knowing how to do all this, they don’t have to stay as long as we do.”

The moral of the story is:

If a dog was his teacher, you’d learn things like:

🐾 When your loved ones come home, always run to say hello.

🐾 Never pass up an opportunity to go for a walk.

🐾 Allow yourself the experience of fresh air and wind.

🐾 Runs, jumps, and plays daily.

🐾 Upgrade your attention and let people touch you.

🐾 Avoid ” biting” when just a “growl” would suffice.

🐾 On warm days, lay on the grass.

🐾 When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

🐾 And never forget: “When someone has a bad day, stay silent, sit close and gently make them feel like you’re there…”

This is the secret of happiness that, even if we don’t realize, dogs teach us daily. 🐶❤️

Unshakable peace + Unconditional love



That’s what I want in my life at all times.  Regardless of what’s going on around me, I choose to be relaxed and present.  
Lately, that’s been increasingly challenging for many reasons.  With the swirl of current events, many people around me have commented, “How do you stay Upside?” even in the face of doom and gloom. “How have you kept yourself from coming undone or being thrown off balance?”  

There’s a story I heard about 10 years ago that I love to presence this.  

Back in the late 1800s, there was a farmer who had worked his crops for many years.  
One day, his son left a gate open and his 3 horses ran away.  
Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.  
“Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t,” the farmer replied.  
The next morning the horses returned, bringing with them 40 other wild horses.  
“How wonderful!” the neighbors coming to see exclaimed.   
“Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t,” said the farmer.  
The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses and was thrown off — and broke his leg.  
The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. “This is terrible news,” they said.  
“Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t,” answered the farmer.  
The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army.  
Seeing that the farmer’s son’s leg was broken, they passed him by.  
The neighbors congratulated for his good luck.  
“Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t,” said the farmer.  

The moral of the story is that no event by itself can be judged as bad or good.  Time is like a tapestry and each moment is but a single thread and stitch. Ultimately, the picture will be revealed as will what ultimately happens.  It is a waste of time to cast judgment on a situation. I prefer to live into the quote from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, “Everything will be all right in the end so if it is not alright it is not the end.”  So, stay calm and carry on.
