Dogs Life Lessons Learned from Buddy the Internet Dog

by Jeff Herring

Dogs can teach you a lot if you are paying attention.

I just bought my two sons their first dog. The delight on their faces is worth every small hassle that comes with owning a dog.

We ended up naming him Buddy the Internet Dog for 2 reasons -

1. We found him on the internet through in the Atlanta area.

2. Buddy sits, lays and sleeps at my feet while I am working on the internet, like right now.

Buddy (his nickname) makes us all really glad that Al Gore invented the internet.

So here are some life and relationship lessons learned so far from Buddy the Internet Dog -

Hang in there - When things are not going well, hang in there, because bad times pass. Buddy was a rescue dog that came to abused and with a leg injury. He spent most of his early life in a cage. Now he's got 2 boys that cannot keep their hands off of him and his own internet web site.

Rest when you are tired - As hard as Buddy plays, he has this strange habit of resting when he is tired. It sure looks like a good idea. He appears to really enjoy his naps.

If something is not working, stop doing it - This one has taken Buddy a few tries, but he seems to be getting it. The first time he ate some grass, he got sick. Happened the second time too. Hasn't happened recently, so perhaps he is getting it.

Play as hard as you work - Buddy knows how to play hard, with passion and gusto. I think we as humans sometimes forget to play with as much energy as we put into work. That's a pretty good lesson to learn from a dog.

We'll be back later with more life and relationship lessons learned from Buddy the Internet Dog.
