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.

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?

Things We Can Learn from a Dog

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

Be Loyal

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

A Mothers Day Poem From The Dog

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
