One of the highlights for many attending last month's Business Resource Meeting was the Inspiration given by Andrea Lenzen, a fellow 2010 Leadership Series classmate and a very active WCR-Metro STL member. In case you missed the meeting, Andrea has graciously provided a copy below: 


[Insert "Andrea's Kids...  Holly & Russell"]


If a dog were your teacher, these are some of the lessons you might learn...

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy

When it's in your best interest, practice obedience
Let others know when they've invaded your territory
Take naps and stretch before rising
Run romp and play daily

Thrive on attention and let people touch you
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do
On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass
On hot days drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree
When you're happy dance around and wag your entire body

No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout
Run right back and make friends

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
Stop when you have had enough
Be loyal
Never pretend to be something you're not

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it
When someone is having a bad day, be silent... sit close by... and nuzzle them gently.

Thank you, Andrea, for this wonderful Inspiration and for sharing Holly and Russell with us!
