The Best Things in Life Aren't Things


Visitors: 183

I was walking to the park with my dog Watson yesterday when I noticed a bumper sticker that said, “The best things in life aren't things". This sticker stopped me in my tracks. As a dog owner who's dog is constantly eating “Things", it gave me some real perspective. It also struck me profoundly and made me start to think about the REAL important “things" in life.

Think about it. . .

The “things" our dogs eat (no matter how expensive or valuable they are) are just things. They don't matter in the scheme of “real things" - the relationships we have with our friends, our family, and even our lovable furry friends, our dogs.

First off, most “things" can be replaced. My girlfriend already has a new pair of prada shoes - the exact same kind Watson destroyed.

Secondly, when your dog eats a “thing" it makes for a great story. . . Just go to my site to see all the amazing stories that are the result of dogs eating “things".

It's Love - The love you have for your dog, and the love your dog has for you - that truly defines “A Best Thing in Life".

Maybe dogs are even trying to tell us that by eating all our “things" - it's their way of showing us what's truly important in life - THEM!

Who knows. . . Maybe dogs are smarter than us altogether. They intuitively understand that “the best things in life aren't things" - Why else would they love eating and destroying them! - “The Daily Dog Tail"
