    Default Pet 10 Commandments

    A friend sent me this. I thought you all might enjoy it.

    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

    Remember that they can't do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!


    ~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!

    Didn't Snopes negate this "dog"?

    I just checked Snopes and you are correct. So, I have deleted that portion. Nevertheless, the 10 Commandments are something to think about.

    The 10 Commandments are great. Makes me feel bad reading them and how at times I've let my dogs down.

    Kind of want to run home to my dogs now. How lucky we are to have them in our lives. Like I told my daughter when we had our old yellow put to sleep, she was so special that God wouldn't let her have us any longer, he needed her more. We were just lucky to get 10 years.

    I don't wear black because it makes me look slim, I wear black because it hides the dog hair.
