Rufnit Kennels Braque du Bourbonnais - "The 10 Commandments from a Pet's Standpoint"
The 10 Commandments From a Pet's Standpoint

by Stan Rawlinson - DogListener


My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you buy me.

Give me time to understand what you want from me don't be impatient, short-tempered or irritable.

Place your trust in me and I will always trust you back, respect is earned not given as an inaliable right.

Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment, I am not capable of understanding why? I only know I have been rejected. You have your work, entertainment and friends. I only have you.

Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice and your tone "just look at my tail".

Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it and if it's cruel it may affect me forever.

Please don't hit me. I can't hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I really don't ever want to do that.

Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right foods or I've been out in the sun too long or my heart is getting old and weak or I may be just dog tired.

Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old and may also need love, care, and attention.

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 are there.  Remember Irrespective of what you do I will always love and adore you, for that is the very nature of the Dog.
