o Pay very close attention to other peoples’ feelings, wants and needs as expressed through sound and body language


This means that you have to stop humping their leg when everyone is shouting at you to stop....

:lol:

Don’t waste time being angry


This means stop growling at other dogs and the postman.

My love must be unconditional


"must be" ? That sounds conditional.

Live in the moment


This means stop chasing and thinking about those bitches all over town.

(Just having some fun, not really being critical of the article. I :heart: all animals, including dogs.)

Do not judge smells as bad; think of them as important sources of information

And my personal fav.... Accept affection from anyone

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
