* When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
* When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
* Let others know when they have invaded your territory.
* Take naps often and stretch before rising.
* Run, romp and play daily.
* Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
* 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.
* Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
* Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
* On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
* When you're happy, dance around and wag your tail.
