A Pet's Ten Commandments


1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of 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, but I only have you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet I 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 have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

Reading that makes me so sad because so many people in this world do just the opposite. My pups are part of my family and I could never imagine treating them poorly.

9 and 10 made me teary eyed! It breaks my heart when people get rid of their dogs (or any pet) because they get old :(
It is sad but people do it to their own families, I remember my grandfather coming to live out his life with us when I was a child. My mom will never see a nursing home

Very cute and true write up

haha I speak to Mojo all the time as if he were a person and he sits there and looks at me like 'what the hell are you on about? Why cant you just speak dog?"

Love it.
