When people say that their dog has taught them so much, non-dog owners always seem quietly amused by this. It’s just a dog! No, “it” isn’t anything. “It” is either a he or a she, for a start.
And “just a dog”? How little they know!
Banjo has taught me so much. Through his soft and curious eyes, I see things I probably wouldn’t notice.
So, I’ve decided to start a regular column on Shyhound called Not Just a Dog. I think dogs have taught humans a great many things, and I want to explore those lessons.
I want to share some of what I have learned from Banjo, but I also want to hear from YOU, dear Shyhound readers: What has your dog taught you? Would you consider writing a guest post for Shyhound? Let’s celebrate our canine friends and their wisdom!
Banjo says: Aroo! I like dis ideeyah becos I like learning about mah doggie frends!
