I ran across this dog commandments poem on the web recently and searched for an author, but could not find one.
If anyone knows, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
I’m sure it was written with all dogs in mind, but it speaks LOUDLY of Small Dog breeds.
I. Thou shalt not act half-starved whenever thou watcheth me eat.
II. Thou shalt not lift thy leg to water thy Christmas tree.
III. Thou shalt not lie down next to me and make licking and popping noises.
IV. Thou shalt not treat my shoes as your chew toy.
V. Thou shalt keep thy nose out of the kitty litter box.
VI. Thou shalt not pass gas and then walk away as if I have offended thee.
VII. Thou shalt not run away in pursuit of a good time. Thou hast been neutered.
VIII. Thou shalt not hide thy bones under the covers or under my pillow.
IX. Thou shalt not harmonize with the cat at 2 A.M. in the morning.
X. Thou shalt not sneak up and lick me in the mouth while I am sleeping.
May I add a few commandments of my own?
I know there is only supposed to be Ten Commandments, but as of today, I don’t think my dogs can count past five.
