Lefty's Tips For A Happy Healthy Life. 
                 
                I would say the best thing you can do in life is have fun! 
     
      You also need to watch out for your family and friends.
    Always play nice. Mind your manners too.
    Always listen to your parents. Your grandparents, aunts and uncles. They really love you and know what's best for you. They just want you to be happy, healty and safe. They want you to have a happy life! Now, when your having fun or exploring the world, there are some things you need to watch out for. When you're playing ball, be sure the ball is big enough so you can't accidentally swallow it or get it stuck  in your throat. That can turn out to be a real bad thing for everybody. 
     
                                                                                            
      Okay, so maybe this one is a little over the top. Dad got one for both Rocko and me. Unfortunatly, they weren't really built to stand up to Labradors. But boy did we have a blast with them while they lasted!
     
       Something you should really watch out for are those flying bugs. You know the ones that make that funny buzzing sound?  Never ever try to catch a wasp!
    I can tell you this,    "They Hurt!" Every time I hear that buzzing sound I get a little crazy. I get teased and laughed at lot with that buzzing noise. Everybody else may think it's funny but hey, I remember.
                                                                                                 
                                                                                                        "They Hurt!"
     
      If your family happens to leave loose change laying around. Don't pick it up for them. You could swallow one by mistake. That can be really dangerous for your health. Especially the brown ones.(the pennies). Once while we were visiting the Vet a little puppy had done just that. He had to have an emergency operation to get it out of his tummy right away! Because, it could make him very, very sick. The doctor and the puppy's family were very worried about him. I don't know how things turned out for him. I sure hope he's okay.
     
      Now if you like to go around picking up sticks like my brother Rocko. Leave the little ones alone. Don't chew on them either. You can get those stuck in your throat too. That happen once to my aunts dog Duke. Just like the little dog who swallowed the penny. Duke had to make an emergency trip to his vet too. Things turned out fine for him. It could have been a lot worse for him. Still, it wasn't much fun. So, do be careful.
     
      Now,
    I know sometimes the trash can be very,very tempting. With all the different smells coming out of it. You just might think there's
    something really yummy in there for you. Well, they call it trash for a reason. Some of that yummy smelling stuff can make you feel really crummy in your tummy. Believe me, it isn't worth it. Plus, there could be chicken bones and other sharp things in there too. Those chicken bones can be worse than a stick. Just because you chew them up and swallow them doesn't mean thay won't hurt you somewhere else inside your body. My advice is,
     
                                                                                         "Stay out of that trash!"  
     
       When you get lucky enough to have your friends come over to play. Remember to be nice and always share your toys with them. Or if you go to their house to visit. Don't break or tear up any of their toys either. You wouldn't like it if thay did that to you. Mind your manners while you're there.
     
       Also,you should never decide to leave your house or yard all by yourself either. You could get lost. Alway let your family know where you are.
     
      And, please, please, please, always look both ways before you cross the street. So many people love you very much and they don't want anything bad to happen to you. Please be careful!                                                                                                                                                                                   
        Just one more little thing.                                                                                                
     
                                                                                                                
       Greet everyone with hand shake and a smile.                                                                                                                
                                                                                               
          
                                                            
                                                          
                                                        
                                                        
                                                        
                                                         
                                                          
                                                        
                                                       
                                                                                                                             
                 Keep on smiling! It's contagious!
