If we could all be like this, the world would be a better place

This has been around, but it still holds true....

The Highest Plane
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get along without pep pills, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring
aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your
troubles, If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you time,

If you can overlook it when those
you love take their frustrations out of you, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without deceit, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without liquor, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or gender preference,

...THEN you will have reached the same level of development as your dog.

  1. So very true. It is a goal I probably will never reach but hopefully will always strive for. Your Pekes are just beautiful. Is the little light colored one blind?

  2. Yes. The blonde one is the mostly blind one. But she gets around great.

  3. Enjoyed your blog. I love the fact that my dog is always in a good mood. With people you never know what to expect, but I always get wags and licks from my dog.
