My pleasure! A friend of mine posted it on Facebook weeks ago. It has stuck with me all this time, so I went back to his page to find it, copy it, and paste it here. I'm glad that you're passing it along further.

Thank you for posting. I wish every pet owner could/would read this. We all need this reminder, no matter how good we are with our pets. My 2 pups are young and I'm not, so I have to always tell myself that its about them, not me. I play when I'd rather nap, or cuddle when I'd rather read a book, but I owe them big time! Now talking to them isnt a problem. They know so many words I have to spell a lot of them.

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 understand 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 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.
Remember that I love you.
Number 10 got me. Too close to home I guess.

Thank you for posting this though. These are important points that every dog owner should remember

I know, Cat.

Actually, I think it was around *that* time when my friend posted it on his FB page. I think that's probably why I didn't share it on mine -- I didn't want you to see it then.

I had no idea. Thank you for clarifying that. Mr. Rawlinson definitely deserves all the credit.
