Interview With The Dog
the silence is broken

We asked a dog to pull aside the shroud of secrecy and be interviewed. He asked that his name not be used, but
for the good of all dogs he agreed to share these ten insight with humans.
1) My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful to me. Remember that before
you buy me.
2) Give me some time to understand what you want from me.
3) Place your trust in me. It's crucial to my well-being.
4) Don't be angry with me for long, and don't isolate me as punishment. You have your work, your entertainment
and your friends. I only have you.
5) Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words - I understand your voice.
6) Be aware that however you treat me, I will not be able to forget it.
7) Remember before you hit me that I have powerful teeth, but I choose not to use them.
8) Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something might be wrong with
me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, or I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart is getting older
and weaker.
9) Take care of me when I get old. You'll be old one day.
10) Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: "I can't watch - it's too painful. Everything is easier when you are
with me.
And through it all: Remember that I love you.

Having dogs is MY choice! I give up things and do without. It's a pity some dog owners
choose to give up their dogs so they don't have to sacrifice their lifestyle.
I regret NOTHING and it will ALWAYS be about my dogs!

If you ever doubt that God love you, take a look around and count your blessings. Most
of mine have four paws. ~ C. Goede
