man’s best teacher — author unknown

peteydogWisdom seldom falls from high places

The mighty and the splendid have taught me little

I have learned more from a dog I once owned

than from all the great books I have read

The wisdom of my dog is the product of

his inability to conceal his wants

When he yearns to be loved

there is no pouting in the corner

there are no games entitled

“Guess What’s the Matter with Me”

He puts his head on my lap

wags his tail and looks up at me

with kind eyes, waiting to be petted

No professor or teacher ever told me

I might live a more successful life

if I simply asked for love when I need it
