15 Nuggets Of Wisdom Our Dogs Continue To Impart On Us

It’s no mystery that our dogs help us understand what happiness is, and what it means to live in the moment. They never try to hide these things, and we don’t always take their advice as literally as we should. Dogs have a certain kind of wisdom–a kind that I believe they don’t need to learn, they’re just born with it.

Take note of these 15 tips our very best friends have been trying to show us all along.

1) Start every day with a toothy smile.
