How do I achieve this status you say. It's easy, I follow every command, never talk back, never hold grudges, and I don't bite the hand that feeds me. When mom lets me out to tend to business, she doesn't have to hunt me down, I come right back when she calls me...that is a real plus.
My day is filled with hugs and playing ball with the animals they have outside.
It hasn't always been this easy. Dad didn't want me in the house to begin with. Now guess who is curled up beside him every night...you guessed it. He even pats the bed for me to come lay down.
Look into my eyes, what's not to love.
Here are some helpful tips my mom found to keep me safe.
- Using metal water dishes outside in winter may be a risk, because my tongue could stick to the frozen metal. In the summer metal bowls can get very hot, and burn my little mouth.
- Add parsley to my food to help tone down my killer breath (everyone has their faults).
- Be careful with the squeaky toys. I may feel I have to find and destroy the sound hidden in the toy and could ingest it and choke.
- Chocolate may be the food of the gods, but it is toxic to my little body.
- People who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks. (That's good news for you)
