Not long ago, I published a post titled ‘What Dogs Don’t Care About’.
I thought it was now time to write about the things they do care about.
Dogs do care…
If you don’t give them their dinner
If you don’t leave them fresh water to drink
If they don’t have any toys to play with
If you make too much fuss of another dog
If you make too much fuss of a cat
If you make too much fuss of a baby
If you read a book or magazine and ignore them
If you don’t take them out for a good walk
If you leave them alone in the house for too long
If you shout at them for being in the way when they don’t know they are in the way
If you leave them with someone else and go on holiday
If you break their routine
If you forget to give them a treat or biscuit at the usual time
If you bring a new dog into the house to live
If you forget they are outside and leave them there for too long
If you tell them off for barking at the postman or delivery courier
If you forget to stroke them and cuddle them
If you shut them in another room when you have company
If one of your visitors doesn’t like dogs
If you have stroked another dog and they can smell it on you
If you eat something nice in front of them and don’t give them even a tiny bit
In many ways, dogs are just like us, especially us as children.
If you ever intend getting a dog, please remember what they care about.
