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.

Lets all take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy every precious moment you get to spend with them and be grateful that you are bless with this precious furry gift. Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God’s critters.

"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected." ~Chief Seattle, chief of the Suquamis


  1. I thank God everyday for my pets! I don't know what I would do without them....

  2. Hey there Budrow! Sorry I've been so absent lately! REALLY SORRY!!!
    You are a good and faithful dog-showin' up every time I post and I am sorely lackin' in this dept. due to the business of work and life. I hope you and your Mom are doin' TERRIFIC and I'm sure you are makin' a lot of dobies and their new families happy because you have been the foster family when they needed you.

    Big Brown Hugs to you both!
    Chester ;0=)

    P.S. from Mom: do you really hide and then attack your Mom Budrow? Chester likes to lay flat on the ground and then charge me from across the yard. Usually he jumps real high and even sometimes his whiskers will brush my cheek. Do you know that kind of carrying on scares us 2 leggers? Oh! So that's yours and Chester's point, huh? OK, but please don't hurt your Mom doin' it. Okay? ♥
