1.My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be very painful.
2.Give me time to understand what you want from me.
3.Place your trust in me it is crucial for my well being.
4.Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment. I ONLY HAVE YOU.
5.Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
6.Be aware that however you treat me I'll NEVER forget it.
7.Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush your bones in your hand, but choose not to bite you.
8.Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart might be geting old and weak.
9.Take care of me when I get old. You, too will grow old.
10.Go with me on diffcult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or let it happen in my absence. Everything is easier for Me if you are there.
REMEMBER, I LOVE YOU
I wish someone would tell me what it is that I've done wrong.
Why do I have to stay chained up and be left alone so long?
They seemed so glad to have me when I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we'd do while I was growing up.
The Master said he'd train me as a companion and a friend.
The Mistress says she'd never fear to be left alone again.
The children said they'd play with me and walk me if I would only stay.
But now the Master "hasn't time"
The Mistress says I shed she doesn't want me in the house. not even to be fed.
The children never walk me, they always say "not now"
I wish I could please them. Won't someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love.
I wish they would explain why they said they wanted mine, and then left it on a chain?
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
When it's in your best intrest practice obedience
Let others know when they've invaded your territory
Run romp and play daily
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
Never pretend to be something you're not
If what you want lies buried dig until you find it
When someone is having a bad day be silent sit close by and nuzzle them gently
Thrive on attention and let people hug you
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do
On hot days drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree
When your're happy dance around and wag your entire body
No matter how often your're scholded don't buy into the guilt thing and pout Run right back in and make friends
Delight in the simple joy of long walks
You feed me when I'm hungry
You keep water in my dish
You let me sleep on anything
Or in any place I wish
You sometimes let me lick your hands
or even lick your face
Despite the fact that I've licked myself
In every private place
You taught me how to come when called
You taught me how to sit
You always let me go outside
So I can take a stroll
You'll always have my loyalty
up to the bitter end
Cause after all it's plain to see
You are a dog's best friend
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!
