THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM MY DOG...........


1.  Always greet the day with gusto

2.  Enjoy every meal you eat...to the fullest

3.  Ask for love when you need it

4.  Forgive, forgive and then forgive some more 

5.  Take a little rest ~~ everyday

6.  Don't soil your nest

7.  Always appreciate those you love

8.  And last...but not least....bark...ahhh....speak up when you need to

Thank you sweet Sophie for bringing so much joy into our life.




Hugs,

Jo
