A Dog’s Ten Rules

Ten things your dog wants from you:

  1. My expected life-span is only 10 to 15 years, and I want to spend as much time as possible with you. Before you take me home, please make sure you can spend time with me.
  2. Please remember to be patient with me. It will take time for me to understand what you expect and want from me.
  3. Please don’t give me away to someone else. I will not understand why you left me.
  4. Please don’t scold me or punish me for too long; like leaving me in a small area. You have friends and hobbies; but all I have is you.
  5. Please talk to me sometimes. I may not understand what you are saying, but I can feel your warmth and love through your voice.
  6. Please remember to handle me with care and I will promise to give you unconditional love.
  7. Before you think about hitting me, please remember that even though I have sharp teeth, I will never bite you.
  8. Before you think that I am a bad dog and scold me, please try to understand why I would do bad things to make you upset: Maybe you leave me at home too long; maybe I feel sick; or maybe I am just getting old.
  9. Please don’t leave me when I get old and weary. I want to be with you until my last breath.
  10. When I die, please don't be too sad or cry. My time with you is short, but it has been wonderful. Just try not to forget me.
