If you can start the day without caffeine
If you can always 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 your loved ones are too busy to give you any time
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you, when through no fault of yours something goes wrong.
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend
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 honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender preference or politics.

Then you have reached the same level of development as your dog.

    This proves that my dog is better than me!
    She knew that already- I guess I need to face up to it now.

    My dogs are my hairy children, they never back talk and they never want to borrow the car. Couldn't ask for better.
