I just love this one so much and the image is very hard to read (because the writing is so small) I just love my dog so much and this one touches my heart so I am retyping the commandments (right from my dog's mouth :-)
1) My life is likely to be 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful to me. Remember that before you buy me.
2) Give me time to understand what you want from me.
3) Place your trust in me. it's crucial to 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 entertainment and your friends. I only have you.
5) Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words. I understand your voice when it's speaking to me.
6) Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it.
7) Remember before you hit me, I have teeth that could easily crush the bones of your hand but I choose not to bite you.
8) Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something may be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, or I've been out in the sun too long or my heart is getting old and weak.
9) Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old.
10) Go with me on difficult journeys, Never say "I can't bear to watch it" or "let it happen in my absence". Everything is easier for me if you are there.
Remember that I am your dog and I love you.
