Just wanted to share something that someone sent me. I had some problems with the people (we let stay in our hom basically free to help them out )and our dogs. My dog nipped and him and he sad he would crush his skull if he did it again. I am very protective of my dogs and they have never acted this way to anyone. I ended up losing my temper and yelling at them when maybe I shouldnt have. I may have to adopt my dogs out to avoid further problems. I love my dogs very much. I will get into the story later when I have the time. I am exhausted and stressed out over all of this. Here is something that I really liked reading. God bless all of our four legged and feathered friends:
TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR PETS. THEY LOVE YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.
Ten Commandments for a Responsible Pet Owner as dictated by the pet.
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.
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
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, before you strike me, remember that I have teeth
that could easily crush the bones in your hand and yet I choose not to
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
9. Pleasetake care of me when I grow old. You too will grow old.
10. On the 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.
Take a moment today to thank God for your companions. Enjoy and take
good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful thing
without God's critters. Please pass this on to other pet owners.
We do not have to wait for heaven to be surrounded by hope, love and
joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four feet.
