Manners

Sometimes you gotta remember, everyone wasn’t raised like you.

Duff here. I am a well-mannered Dog. Well, except when Someone shows up at the Office door. Then I am all out for letting Them know how delighted I am to make Their Acquaintance. But normally, I am courteous. I walk to the left side of Mom when We saunter between Client Sessions. I use My Good Behavior then, stopping only to check out a Scent or Survey the landscape. (Mom doesn’t pay Focused Attention as I do. I miss Nothing.) Living unstuck.

But there are times when I see Rude Behaving Dogs. Barking as They ride in a Car. Charging another Canine or person. Acting aggressively for no Reason. Pulling Their Companion along as They take a Walk. Snapping at Their Master if a Hand happens to approach the food Bowl. I mean, really! I was raised to Know what to Do (and Not) and that keeps Me living unstuck.

How about You? Do You appreciate Others at times for Their stellar Manners? And wonder at times if They were raised in a Barn? I say: Observe, don’t judge. And move on. You and I were raised well. Perhaps it will Rub off on those Who Act Out. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#manners
