Insight Number 5

Pets can be our greatest teachers – I was never an animal person. I had a dog as a child and I loved him but I shared him with my entire family. I didn’t have another pet until I was 35 and decided I needed a little something to take care of. I knew it wasn’t a baby, but something small and needy. I got a puppy and thought I would be the one to teach him what he needed to know. It was the other way around. Muffasssa became my greatest teacher. He made my life better and taught me to be a nicer, kinder person. The day he died is still one of the saddest days of my life. I miss him every day. One of my favorite quotes is by Roger Caras, “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
