Dogs teach us about unconditional love and gratitude.


We humans can learn a lot from dogs such as unconditional love, loyalty, and mindfulness. Dogs appreciate the present moment, one of the key teachings in Buddhism, in that we must have gratitude for our lives, loved ones, and opportunities.  With gratitude, we can overcome the challenges of life, and achieve peace and happiness for a great majority of our precious life.
