- My life is likely
to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you
will be very painful...
- Give me time to
understand what you want of me...
- Place your trust
in me it's crucial to my well-being...
- Don't be angry
with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your
work, your friends, your entertainment. I HAVE ONLY YOU...
- Talk to me. Even
if I don't understand your words, I understand
your voice when it's speaking to me...
- Be aware that
however you treat me, I'LL NEVER forget it...
- Before you hit
me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones
in your hand, but I choose not to bite you...
- Before you scold
me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might
be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I've been
out in the sun too long, or my heart may be getting old and weak...
- Take care of me
when I get old. You too will grow old...
- Go with me on
difficult journeys. Never say, " I can't bear to watch."
Everything is easier for ME if you are there. Remember. I LOVE YOU.
