Doggy Philosophy

Dogs make our lives better in many ways. They keep us active, entertain us, and offer us unconditional love and loyalty. As it turns out, there’s quite a bit we can learn from Man’s Best Friend. An Anderson, IN vet discusses doggy philosophy below.

Appreciate The Simple Things

Fido has a whole list of his favorite things ever: car rides, belly rubs, long walks, good food, and play sessions. It doesn’t take much to get that cute tail wagging! In fact, some pups start thumping their tails when you just look at them. This is a wonderful reminder to enjoy life’s smaller gifts.

Be Loyal

Fido didn’t earn the title of Man’s Best Friend for nothing. Our canine companions stay right by our sides through thick and thin. They don’t ask for much, either, aside from food, shelter, love, and, of course, a little bacon here and there. Be loyal to those who have stood by you!

Have Fun

If our canine pals had one message for us, it may very well be to just enjoy ourselves. It’s almost impossible not to smile when seeing a playful pup bounding after a ball, toy, or Frisbee. Carve out time for doing things that make you happy!


Fido may take this one a bit too seriously at times. Dogs love investigating, well, pretty much anything and everything. Take a cue from your pup, and check out some local spots you haven’t gone to before. Try a small restaurant that’s been struggling this year, or visit a hidden park you’ve never been to.

Stop To Smell The Roses

Dogs of course take this one literally, but it’s still good advice. Fido can spend quite a lot of time just sniffing at different things, and taking in the smells, sights, and sounds around him. As Ferris Bueller once said, life moves pretty fast, and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Remember to slow down sometimes.


Cats may be the ultimate examples of extreme relaxing, but Fido is no slouch here either. Dogs are adorable when they’re dreaming in their beds. Make sure you’re getting enough down time. And, of course, be sure to spend some of it with your faithful pet.
