Thrillerfest 2012 will remain in my memory one of the best experiences I’ve had, not only in terms of the people I met, such as Sandra Brown, Lee Child, David Morrell, Steve Berry, Douglas Preston, Catherine Coulter, Ted Dekker, and countless others, but because of the camaraderie we all shared as aviaries of a like plume.

My dog is probably like most in the same way, but upon careful observation of his interation with me and my family, I learned a few things from him that made me wonder—What if people could be like this to each other?
Here are the four things I learned:
