How to Be Happy – Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are

How to be happy, be the person your dog thinks you are.

Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are is the title of a book published October 23, 2018. It was written by C. J. Frick and illustrated by Liza Donnelly. Even though that’s a clever title, keep in mind that if you want to know how to be happy, it’s also a sweet motto to live by.

Think about you and your dog. Would it make you happy to know that, in his opinion, you can do no wrong?

When it comes down to it, I can only speak for myself and my dog. To be sure, I know she appreciates it when I am:


Roxie thinks it’s great when we cuddle. When I give her a belly rub, her eyes roll back in her head and she’s so content. She thinks I’m doing it for her, but it’s for me, too.


Food, drinks, walks, attention, and grooming are just a few of the things your dog relies on you for. Not unlike any kid.


My girl never worries when I go out…she knows I’ll be back. And, when I get home, she’s so happy. As a matter of fact, I’m always greeted with a kiss and a wagging tail. Certainly makes me feel good!


Roxie knows that her mama will always be attentive, affectionate, and happy to see her. That’s because I don’t take my best friend for granted and will always give her the care she deserves.


If your dog is anything like mine, there will be lots of walks, games, dog-parking, and treat-hiding. As a result, we’re able to keep them content. After all, it’s up to us to keep them moving and engaged in fun and challenging exercise.

That’s one happy dog.

The qualities that my dog expects from me are pretty much the same that I need to show everyone in my life. In a word, I want to show love. I believe it’s the least I can do. It makes me happy. What about you?
