3. When loved ones come home, always run and greet them
4. Always practice obedience (when it's in your best interests)
5. Let others know when they've invaded your territory
6.Take naps and always stretch before rising
7. Run, romp and play daily
8. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
9. Be trustworthy, loyal and friendly
10. Never pretend to be something you're not
11. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it
12. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently
13. Delight in the simple joys of a long walk
14. Thrive on attention and let people touch you
15. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do
16. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree
17. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body
18. No matter how often you are criticized, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout. Run right back and make friends
