Lance Lessons: all I need to know in life, I learned from my dog

This is Lance, my canine sidekick. I want to say this is who I share my day with, but really he has his own agenda—including a lot of the activity illustrated above: relaxing. He especially loves to sunbathe, as he is doing right now (still in the same spot in our yard that you see above), and in general, he is a man of leisure. I know it’s a cliche to say that all I need to know in life, I learned from my dog, but sometimes it’s true.

Lance leads a simple life: he sleeps for a large part of the day, and mostly seems to think about going for walks, eating, and sleeping. Honestly though, he doesn’t seem to think very much—expect about the moment he’s in. I’m not saying I want to sleep all day—I generally like to use my brain in creative ways, but let’s take a moment to think about the wisdom of Lance—the ability to live in the moment, lie down in the sun when there’s sun, enjoy a walk when he’s on a walk. This is a beautiful way to live. I think I could learn a few lessons from him.

Here’s to Lance’s willingness to take things as they come. Thanks Lance!

    A great looking boy! I love dogs that look like dogs. I’d be lost without my two little ones.
