Many of the qualities that come so effortlessly to dogs - loyalty, devotion, selflessness, unflagging optimism, unqualified love - can be elusive to humans.
Much has been written about the loyalty of dogs, but what I love about them isn't their devotion to me so much as their devotion to being alive.
I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.
