the "10 Commandments"?

10 Commandments for a Responsible Pet Owner

1.  My life is likely to last 10-15 years, any separation from you will 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.  I only have you!

5.  Talk to me.  Even if I don't understand your words,  I understand your voice
when it's speaking to me.

6.  Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it.

7.  Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the
bones in your hand, but 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've been  out in the sun too long, or
my heart may be getting old and weak.

9.  Take care of me when I get old.  You, too, will grow old.

10.  Go with me on difficult journeys.  Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or,
"Let it happen in my absence."  Everything is easier for me if you are there.
Remember, I love you.
