A Must-Read For All Dog Parents
We saw this share by Lewis Howes and thought it too good not to share. Let us know what you think!
- My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
- Give me time to understand what you want of me.
- Place your trust in me - it is crucial to my wellbeing.
- Do not be angry at me for long and do not lock me up as punishment.
- You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I only have you.
- Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
- Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.
- Remember that before you think about hitting me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
- Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
- Take care of me when I get old; you too, will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “let it happen in my absence”. Everything is easier for me when you are there, even my death.
A reminder to truly treasure our pets.
