    A Pet's Ten Commandments 

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

    2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. Don't be frustrated and impatient.

    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 have only you.

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


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

    7. Before you hit me, before you strike 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 and weak.


9. Please take care of me when I grow old You too, will grow old and need love, care, comfort and attention.

    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. I love you so

    Made me realize how much we mean to our dogs.

    11. Don't expect any hugs. I don't have hands or thumbs, and anyway I don't do that hugging thing.
