If you can start your day without caffeine

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend

If you can face the world without lies or deceit

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong

If you can conquer tension without medical help

If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics.................

Then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog ;-)
