Dog Thoughts



  Just because your dog is scampering around, running and playing –that does not mean that he doesn’t have a time of reflection and rememberance of past experiences.

We know that dogs are smart, that’s why they can be trained for so many positions in life that are beneficial to us all.

They are not only are devoted dog companions, but they can be called upon to do service work, such as therapy dogs or Search and Rescue dogs. In order to perform these tasks, they must have a brain and be able to think.

The following is a list of “DOG THOUGHTS“.

The author is unknown, but when I read them, I felt they were worthy to pass on.

Please take these to your heart when you read them.


1. Dog Thought: My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you get me.

2. Dog Thought: Give me time to understand what you want from me.

3. Dog Thought: Place your trust in me.

4. Dog Thought: Do not be angry at me for long, and do not keep me locked up for punishment.

5. Dog Thought: Play with me and keep me busy! You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I only have YOU. 

6. Dog Thought: Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I recognize your voice. It is music to my ears(unless you are yelling) Remember I do have a name.

7. Dog Thought: Be aware, that however you treat me, I will NEVER forget it!

8. Dog Thought: PLEASE DO NOT HIT ME! I can’t hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I really don’t want to do that.

9. Dog Thought: Before you scold me for being obstinate, lazy or uncooperative, 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 maybe my heart is getting weak and old. Maybe I just do not hear as well as when I was a puppy.

10. Dog Thought: Take care of me when I get old. You, too, will grow old one day. And I still love you.

11. Dog Thought: Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say ” I cannot bear to watch” or ” Let it happen in my absense”. Everything is easier if you are there. Remember, I LOVE YOU.

12. Dog Thought: Always know that if I could I would make everything wonderful for you. I will try my best.  I will be devoted to you until the last beat of my heart.
