Achieving Happiness

May 10th, 2010

“People have a hard time achieving happiness in their lives. They tend to get wrapped up in their own little world. People get confused because they do not know what they need or want, and then depression sets in. Dogs do not have this problem. They know exactly what makes them happy – doing something for someone. They will do everything they can think of to please their human companion, and any signs that they have been successful make them very happy.”
— John Richard Stephens

AB — When it comes to achieving real happiness, dogs and cats have a distinct advantage over man. All they desire is our undivided attention— “Play with me”, “Let’s go for a walk”, “Here, sit down; let me curl up in your lap” — and “by the way, a few extra treats wouldn’t hurt, either”.
