Are You as Good as Your Dog?

Are You the Same as your Dog?

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can get going without pep pills,

If you can always be cheerful without ignoring aches and pain,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand that your loved ones may be too busy to give you anytime,

If you can overlook it when those you when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him or her, If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics,

Then, my friend, you can say that you are almost as good as your dog.
