The Pet 10 Commandments
  1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you adopt me.

  2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

  3. Place your trust in me - it's crucial to my well-being.

  4. Don't be angry at me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I have only you.

  5. Talk to me. 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 that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones of your hand but that I choose not to bite you.

  8. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something might 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, I love you.

Ensuring Safety Around Pets
  1. Stay away from an angry or frightened pet– even your own!
  2. Never go near a stray animal.
  3. If a stray animal comes near you, stay calm and stand still. Don’t run! Wait until it leaves before you move.
  4. Always ask the owner if it’s okay to touch their pet.
  5. Be gentle when petting a dog or cat. Lightly stroke its back and neck, avoiding the eyes and ears.
  6. Never hit, kick, or otherwise harm an animal. It may try to hurt you back.
  7. Play gently with your pet. If your pet gets too rough, stop playing.
  8. Leave animals alone while they are eating or sleeping.
  9. Never take food away from a dog or cat, even as a joke.
  10. Avoid newborn puppies or kittens. The mother may fight to protect her babies.
