Ten heartbreaking things your dog would tell you if it could speak

Ten heartbreaking things your dog would tell you if it could speak

Dogs are our family. We spend so much time playing with them, cuddling them, and caring for them. We stay up when they’re sick and try to be the best dog parents ever. We don’t want to disappoint that little (or big!) ball of fur that trusts us with their life.

Unfortunately dogs can’t speak, so we don’t know what they want to tell us, and when it comes to understanding what your dog is trying to say, things can get a little difficult for us humans.

However, if dogs could speak we’re pretty sure they would say this:

  1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
  2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
  3. Place your trust in me – it is crucial to my well being.
  4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
  5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.
  6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
  7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.
  8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
  9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
  10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death.
