MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: 10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You

Snow. We have a light covering of snow on the deck. It is very little but just enough to say, “we have snow.”

My plan is to spend much time researching and writing. I am sure there will be some documentary breaks, napping, and Fab Five time.

I have read this post, often, and love it.


1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. (Always!)

3. Place your trust in me – it is crucial to my well-being.

4. Do not be angry at me for long; do not lock me up as punishment. (I might growl but there is no punishment; my Fab Five always want to please me)

5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.

6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I know your voice when it is speaking to me. (We have a lot of conversations and sometimes I know my pooches really understand me!)

7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.

8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.

9. 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.

10. 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 if you are there, even my death.

Make it a great day!
