On Being Content

I do not want to be anything other than I am. I do not want to be a bird, a human or a cat; though all of these creatures are great, yes even cats. I am a medium sized black dog. I do not want to be tan, white or brindle. I want to be me. I do not want to be small like Ruby the Mini Dachsund or big like Honey the Great Dane, though both would have great advantages. I am happy being me and I don't try to be anyone else. 

Humans have many fantastic qualities and you know they are our best friend. I love that they are social animals and like to connect with other beings. They can be really good at compassion. There is a tendency among people to want to be something other than they are. They sometimes feel they are not "good enough," whatever that means. It can occasionally affect their relationship with their dog. If there is a problem, they think their dog is not "good" or "smart" enough. By all means when there is a problem, a solution is needed but it is no-one's fault. Every being is perfect. So rejoice in all creatures great and small, including yourself.
