10 Commandments

  1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be very 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 for punishment. I have only you.
  5. Talk to me, even if I don’t understand your voice when its speaking to me.
  6. Be aware however you treat me I will never forget.
  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.
  8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I am not getting the right food, I’ve been out in the sun too long, or my hear might be getting old and weak.
  9. Take care of me when I grow 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!
