A Moment, Please

Nellie, Calvert and Yuchie's Mom, Claudia, wrote this on her Facebook page. We find it so touching and true and we want to share it with all of you.

A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS

by Claudia Duque

  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.

~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!


We are here to love you!

We've seen that before, but think it is so good. We think it should be given to everyone when they acquire a dog!

We have read that before! The last part made our Mama cry. She did go with our big sister Chopper for the final journey and Chopper died in her arms... but because Mama was only a kid when our other sister Zip died, and Gramma didn't want to go with, Zip died alone. :*(
