Learning a New Trick From My Old Dog: Friendship

Dave Barry and his dog Lucy are both 70 (in human years), and he’s decided it’s time to emulate her trustful, open, joyful way of approaching people

I turned 70 in the same year that my dog, Lucy, turned 10—or, in dog years, 70. So we’re basically at the same stage of life, namely, Getting Old.
Lucy is handling it a lot better than I am.
I’m not complaining: I’ve had a good life, and I’m content. But Lucy is more than content: She’s happy, often exuberantly happy, constantly finding excitement and joy in everyday events. It occurred to me that maybe I could learn some life lessons from her—that I could find more happiness in my own life by doing the things Lucy does, except of course for drinking from the toilet.
