A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS



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.

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 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 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.

~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets Enjoy and take good care 
of them.

Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters..

~Now 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 legs!

I will re-post this on my blog next week, I have never heard this before but I agree completely, the words are so wise! I know that Mum knows how wonderful I am and she can't thank me enough for the love and friendship that I give her, she always gives me hugs and kisses and always talks to me, we would both be terribly broken hearted if we ever lost eachother, she is my world and I am hers! This made Mum feel sad because she was thinking of Blu! It makes me so grateful that I have my forever home with Mum and Dad! Love, Licks and Hugs your friend Frank x x x x x x

It's been a long time since I've read this. Thanks for posting it. I love my little girls so very much I just wish everyone felt the same way. It hurts so much to know that there are crazy people out there abusing dogs (and other animals).

I truly hope my pets will all last at least 15 years, it broke my heart that our Zira only made it to 13
