A STUMP OF A TAIL
BEFORE I WAS A DOG MUM
A STUMP OF A TAIL

 1.  MY LIFE IS LIKELY TO LAST 10 - 15 YEARS. SPEND LOTS OF TIME WITH ME.  I WON'T BE AROUND FOREVER.
 
2.  GIVE ME TIME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME.
 
3.  PLACE YOUR TRUST IN ME.  IT IS CRUCIAL FOR MY WELLBEING.
 
4.  DON'T BE ANGRY WITH ME FOR LONG.  PLEASE DON'T LOCK ME UP FOR PUNISHMENT.  YOU HAVE YOUR WORK, YOUR FRIENDS AND YOUR ENTERTAINMENT.  I ONLY HAVE YOU.
 
5.  TALK TO ME - EVEN IF I DON'T UNDERSTAND YOUR WORDS.  I UNDERSTAND YOUR VOICE WHEN IT IS SPEAKING TO ME.
 
6.  BE AWARE THAT HOWEVER YOU TREAT ME, I WILL FORGIVE, BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET.
 
7.  PLEASE DON'T HIT ME.  DO NOT PUSH ME TO THE POINT WHERE I NEED TO DEFEND MYSELF.
 
8.  BEFORE YOU SCOLD ME FOR BEING LAZY OR UNCO-OPERATIVE, ASK YOURSELF IF SOMETHING MIGHT BE BOTHERING ME.  PERHAPS I AM NOT GETTING THE RIGHT FOOD OR I HAVE 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" OR "LET IT HAPPEN IN MY ABSENCE".  EVERYTHING IS EASIER FOR ME IF YOU REMEMBER I LOVE YOU.
