10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You If It Could Talk



March 29, 2012 – Comments (10)

[Once in a while I'll post something that is not stock-related that I think is worth while.  This is one of those things.  And I don't own a dog.]

10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You If It Could Talk

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.

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

4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.

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

6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understands your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.

7. Be aware that how ever 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 to 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. Remember that I love you.

Dude are you trying to make me cry, cause I'm pretty close to breaking down.

In loving memory of my little buddie Oscar.

I know what you mean.  I had the same feeling reading that thinking of my cat Newman (named after Paul Newman) that I had to have put to sleep about a year ago.  He wasn't even a year old and had feline leukemia, but at least I was there for him.

OK, thumbs up on this one!

But your claim that you post something that is not stock-related "once in a while" is only true if you remove the "not" part...

Yeah, it is heartbreaking.

Oscar died of old age this March 6 in my arms as I was bringing him down to the car to take him to the vet to be euthanized.It's like he knew that was it and would rather be with Norma and I rather than having the vet there whom he was not fond of.

Cheers to all of our beloved pets.

I had something kind of similar happen.  Years ago I had two cats who were brothers, Igor and Rizzo.  They were my first two pets.  One night Igor's behaviour just wasn't right and I decided to rush him to the vet.  He died on the way but before he did, he let out these two loud and unusual meows, as if it was his way of saying "goodbye."

Incidentally, I currently have a cat named Oscar.

Had I understood the loss of a dog, I never would have gotten one in the first place.  I couldn't let go of Petie, he died of old age, and I should have let him go a year earlier.

Gromit is snoring next to me.  He had roasted veal trimmings for lunch.  Does he wear a collar?  Rarely, only when we need to use a leash.

 He is a car phobic, so we don't go anywhere.  I would love to go to the dog park.  He is such a good dog........  I will never deserve him.
