12 Things Your Dog Wishes You Knew

Ever wondered what your dog would say to you if she could talk? You may think she would just ask for more toys or for you hand over that steak, but in reality, she may say some pretty surprising things. What would your dog say?

#1 – When you scold me for something I did hours ago, I look guilty because of your tone of voice, not because I understand why you are mad at me.

#2 –  I don’t like to be left alone all the time.

#3 – Sometimes when I bark at something, I may look tough, but I am actually scared. Take the time to learn the difference.

#4 – We should exercise more, it’s good for both of us.

#5 – I love you just the way you are, so accept me for who I am and love me for me too, even if I am not perfect.

#6 – I would rather work for rewards than work for fear of punishment. (wouldn’t you?)

#7 – Being a creature of habit, it’s easier on me if you keep the rules the same….so am I allowed on the couch or not?

#8 – When I ask you to play, it’s for your benefit just as much as mine, so don’t ignore it.

#9 – I can’t always show you when I am not feeling well, so make sure I got to the vet regularly to be sure everything is fine….even if I complain about going.

#10 – Don’t abandon me when I get old or sick – that’s when I need you the most. I wouldn’t abandon you.

#11 – I don’t need an “alpha pack leader,” I need a loving family member who can teach me the rules of living with a human.

#12 – Just because I am a dog does not mean I want to meet every person or every dog. Do you want to say hello to everyone you pass on the street? If I am shy and don’t want to say hi, leave me be.
