What I’ve learned from my puppy.

  • It’s good to have something to chew on.
  • A backlog of (pe)email can be very distracting.
  • It’s easier to get into a tight corner than get out.
  • No to-do list is more important than a cuddle.
  • Sometimes it’s nice just to feel the breeze in your ears… um, hair.
  • The reason to socialise is to find people to play with.
  • When you gotta go, you gotta go.
  • Play hard, sleep hard.
  • However many toys you have, you really only need a couple of favourites.
  • It really hurts to be away from people you love.
  • Destructing things is tempting, but then you’re left with the mess.
  • You might not like a shower, but it’s a necessity for receiving cuddles.
  • It’s worth looking in bushes because you never know what you might find.
  • If you’re too dignified to show your tummy, don’t expect tummy rubs.
  • Mess is less important than love.
  • Sometimes it’s hard to choose between two or more things — but you can only have as much as you can fit in your mouth.
  • Life is easier when you’re really, really, ridiculously good looking.
  • Not giving something you’re asked for and running away repeatedly can be a love language too.
  • Everyone who has kids needs a really really significant amount of time off for parental leave and enough time each day.
  • Taking responsibility for another living being is an awesome thing.
  • Nothing is more important than being with the ones you love.
