These are great!
 
Dogs are so loyal that they love us no matter what we do. But if we want to provide the best life possible
to these wonderful animals, we have to remember they have complex thoughts and feelings, too. Here are 20 that we must never forget.

Don't be upset when I jump for joy when you come through the door.

dog1
I only live for ten or fifteen years. You are what makes that time enjoyable. It's hard on me when you go away.
 

Give me time to understand what you want from me.

dog2
I don't always get it right on the first try, but I promise I'm trying as hard as I can.
 

Give me your trust.

dog3
Just like I trust you, I need you to trust me, too.
 

Don't be angry with me for too long. And please don't lock me up to punish me.

dog4
You have your friends and family to keep you happy and entertained. I just have you.
 

Take me inside when the weather gets bad.

dog5
The backyard doesn't have air conditioning or a heater. You don't have to let me on the couch, but a small part of the kitchen is much better than sleeping in the snow.
 

Talk to me.

dog6
Sure, we don't speak the same language, but the sound of your voice brightens my whole day.
 

Comfort me when I'm scared.

Scared puppy
You know a lot more about loud noises, strange people, and new places than I do. I need to know that you'll protect me from them. I always feel safer when I'm with you.
 

Remember that I'll never forget how you treat me.

dog8
Teach me that humans are made of love, not pain. And don't ever let me forget it.
 

Come outside with me.

dog9
The sights, sounds, and scents of nature are some of my greatest pleasures in life. I don't care if we play, go for a walk, or just sit under a tree together . . . I want you to experience them with me.
 

Let me make new friends.

dog10
Introduce me to other dogs, cats, or even bigger animals. We might not get along in the end, but having some more friends that look and smell like me makes my life that much brighter.
 

Give me a treat every once in a while.

dog11
Food is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I know you want me to be healthy, so I understand when you don't share your own meals with me. But giving me a dog biscuit when I've been good or mixing tasty vegetables mixed in with my dinner is guaranteed to make me wag my tail extra hard.
 

Please don't hit me.

                                                          2009. Best of

I have teeth that can crush bone. Instead, I cover you in sloppy, wet kisses. Just as I choose not to hurt you, please make the choice to not hurt me.
 

Understand when I need my alone time.

dog13
I love you more than anything, but even though it's rare, I don't always want to play or cuddle. Don't be sad if I'd rather sleep on the cold tile floor instead of in your bed on hot summer nights, and be understanding if I don't want to play as much as the years go on.
 

Show me your world.

dog14
The house and yard might be the only places I ever see unless you let me come with you. A trip to the pet store, the park, or even just a ride in the car is exhilarating for me. I can't wait to see what you want to show me.
 

Teach me new things

dog15
Learning new tricks keeps my mind active, but most of all, it gives me a way to impress you. I love showing off for your friends, looking up at you, and seeing how proud of me you are.
 

Let me get dirty once in a while.

dog16
Your world is inside, but I thrive outdoors. Sometimes I find a lot of mud or a lake that smells like all of its fishy inhabitants. I understand if you don't want to wash all that stuff off every day, but as long as it's safe, let me go back to my wild roots every now and then.
 

Touch me.

dog17
Nothing makes me feel more loved than when you take time out of your day to rub my ears or scratch that itchy spot on my back that I can't reach. I can't understand your words, but I definitely understand the feelings behind a hug.
 

Pay attention if I don't seem like myself.

dog18
It might seem like I'm just being lazy or stubborn, but I might not be feeling well. I can't get help for myself, and I need you to look out for me.
 

Love me when I'm old just as much as you did when I was young.

dog19
I might not be the cute puppy that I once was, but I still love you just as much now as I did then. Please take care of me when my body doesn't work like it used to.
 
With deep affection, love, and respect,
