Dogs are easy.
Even the most difficult dog is easy—compared to humans.
Dogs Have None of the Following Secrets:
desire to dress like someone of the opposite gender and the need to keep it hidden
a crush on someone wildly inappropriate
an arrest record
deep love for watching people fight on “reality” tv shows
longstanding depression or other mental illness
a secret lair from which they launch their costumed, crime-fighting activities
sucking their thumbs until they turn thirteen
a flatulence problem they hide by blaming the kids
Justin Bieber’s picture in their closet
Dogs Have Only One Secret
A dog’s one secret? He has no secrets.
I love dogs. Because what you see is what you get.
Everything that can be known about them is there just waiting for us to discover it.
Dogs don’t hide their joy. Dogs don’t hide their sadness. Dogs don’t hide their fears.
Wouldn’t it be splendid if our only secret was the same as the dog’s only secret? And if everyone else was okay with that?
Would you like to live as transparently as your dog? Or do you think secrets keep life interesting?
