Lessons I learned from the neighbors dog

07/29/14 | by gazunkco [mail] | Categories: Comedy, Biography


My neighbors have a dog, a golden retriever, who is the friendliest, happiest, most outgoing dog I have ever met. An she is this way with everyone she meets, every adult, every child. Anyone who meets this dog, regardless of their previous mood, becomes happy and childlike. They pet and play with the dog, talk to it in a baby voice, give it a hug, receive copious licking from the dog, and leave in a much better mood than they were in before the encounter. I have found myself looking forward to the next time I meet the dog.

The dog’s name is Gracie, I don’t know the names of the neighbors.

The only thing the neighbors have ever said to me is “The dog’s name is Gracie.” I probably should have asked their names the first time we met, but the dog was so overwhelming that I forgot. After that first meeting, it was just awkward to say “Hi Gracie, and what are your owners names?”

The neighbors never talk to or engage with anyone, I never see them outside the house other than to walk the dog. They don’t have any kids or obvious activities outside the home. They seem to be the exact opposite of the dog.

Everyone in the neighborhood loves Gracie and knows her name. I would venture to guess that very few could even identify her owners in a police line-up.

The life lesson I learned from Gracie is this: You get out of it what you put into it. If you are genuinely happy to meet people and lick their hand (metaphorically speaking) every time you meet them, they will return that attitude toward you, every time, regardless of their previous mood.

The moral of this story: Be happy, lick everybodys hand, and they will love you for it.
