Prompt: Success from a Dog’s Point of View

The prompt this week was to write from an alternative perspective. The quote to get us started was:

The man is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

Robert Louis Stevenson

The prompt is to use the above to write from the perspective of a dog.

Prompt: What My Pet Taught Me

The prompt this week was:

What my pet or an animal taught me.

Have you learned a life lesson from your pets or from an encounter with an animal?
