Living in the Present

October 10th, 2011

“The past for a dog is just that: the past. A dog sees no point in dwelling on things that have happened; the important thing is that they are not happening now. In that respect, they have something to teach us: we so often feel that then is now, and this leads us to prolong the suffering of yesterday into the suffering of today. Dogs do not do that.”
— Alexander McCall Smith

Anita Bergen — Dogs are so wise; they live totally in the present moment. And why not?… That’s where the happiness, love and treats are. We should pay more attention.
