Things I've learned from my Hav

ok, 1/2 hav. The close of another year has me contemplative. Ollie has taught me a lot in the five years I've had him. I look forward to learning more from him.

1) you can never be too close to the one you love. (how havs are always underfoot)

2) Not all reinforcers are created equal.

3) It pays to play dumb some times (this is when I do not have a treat for him but as him to do a trick and he boycotts it).

4) Try to always be in a good mood.

5) Don't hold a grudge.

6) enjoy the simple things in life.

7) some things are priceless.

8) some times a belly rub makes everything better.


If your hav has taught you something, please share. happy holidays everyone and every hav.

1. Everything is edible, especially paper
2. Hilarious joy comes in small packages.
3. Everything is a game.

This is what I have been teaching my Momi and Popi:

- size doesn't equate with amount of enjoyment

- face each challenge with courage and determination

- live each day to the fullest with total enthusiasm

- maybe curiosity killed the kitty but it sure is good for doggies and peoples

- a good laugh is always a good laugh

- shred some paper or pop some of those air thingies once in a while, it just feels good

- there is a time to play and a time to rest

- a "quicky" is a ten minute nap

- a warm reception is a cold wet nose

- kiss those who you love most at EVERY opportunity

besos, Ricky Ricardo

Live in the moment. Don't hold grudges (already mentioned) and don't worry about the future.
