A Pet's Ten Commandments

I just had this emailed to me!!!

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be 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 as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!
Remember that they can't do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!
Now please pass this on to other pet owners.

First Day!

We at Ruffledale have decided to start a blog.... This is the first day and we are all new to the blogger world... so this could be very interesting.

All of us at Ruffledale are so excited to post all about what happens on a day to day basis. Each of us here not only are in love with dogs, but some people tease us, telling us that we all are "part dog," kind of scary!!!

When I think about the comment of us being half dog, I first look to see if I have grown a tail, then I laugh, because the way we act I sometimes wonder myself. Working with so many dogs is amazing. You learn so much about the dog world, but then you realize how much it is like the human world. For example,

we shake hands to introduce ourselves:they sniff bums to introduce themselves...

as children we fight over toys:as dogs they fight over toys....

If someone gets more attention then us, we get jealous: If someone gets more attention then them, they get jealous

We need love: they also need love

We love to play with our friends: they love to play with their friends

I could go on for hours, but that would get boring.. I guess the best thing to realize is, that after working at Ruffledale I don't just think dogs are amazing creatures... I know they are!!!!
