Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face
to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
If someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by
and nuzzle them gently.
Thrive on attention, and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Bond with your pack.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into
the guilt thing and pout... run back and make friends.
Daisy - A 911 Fictitious Story
James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. He is blind so he has a Golden Retriever named Daisy. After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened hallway. Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke, James was just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy came back along with James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112.
On her first run of the building, she led James, James' boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building. But she wasn't through yet; she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes, she ran back into the building.
On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapsed. James heard about this and fell to his knees in tears. Against all known odds, Daisy made it out alive, but this time she was carried by a firefighter. "She led us right to the people, before she got injured," the fireman explained.
Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. The next week, Mayor Guilaini rewarded Daisy with the Canine Medal of Honor of New York. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win such an honor.

When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, "The Observer," noticed her in the distance looking at the fireman.
He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do. As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photograph.
If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take things out on you
when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies and 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 do all these things,
THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY THE FAMILY DOG!
