Letter to My Pets:

When I say to move, it means to go someplace else, not to switch
positions with each other so there are still two of you in my way.

The dishes with the paw print are yours, and contain your food. All
other dishes are mine, and contain my food. Please note that placing
your paw print in the middle of MY plate and food does not stake a claim making it YOUR plate and food.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR, and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help
in your quest to reach the bottom first, because I fall faster than
you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed.I am very sorry
about this. Do not think that I will continue sleeping on the couch
to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats actually curl up in a ball
when they sleep.

It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to one another,
Stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that
tails straight out, and having tongues hanging out the other end to
space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If
by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it
is not necessary to claw, whine, and try to turn the knob,or get
your paw under the edge of the door and try to pull it open. I must
exit through the same door I entered. Honest!!!

Also, I have been using the bathroom by myself for quite some time --
canine attendance is not mandatory.

And... I can't stress this one enough -- kiss me, THEN go smell the
dog's/cat's behind.

To pacify you, my dear pet less companions, I have posted the
following notice on our front door:

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit
and then Complain About Our Pets
** The pets live here....YOU DONT!!

** If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay OFF the
furniture. That's why it's called "fur"niture.
** To you, our pets are just animals. To us, they are an adopted
son/daughter who happens to be hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't
speak clearly.

Besides it could be argued that dogs and cats are better than kids
 They don't ask for money all the time
 They are easier to train
 They usually come when called
They don't hang out with drug-using friends
 They don't need a gazillion dollars for a college education,
 if they get pregnant, you can sell the children.


To My Beloved Master

I stood by your bed last night,

I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying,

You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you

Brushed away a tear,

?It?s me, I haven?t left you I?m well,

I?m fine, I?m here.?

I was close to you at breakfast,

I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times,

Your hands reached down to me.

I walked with you towards the house,

as you fumbled for your key.

I gently put my paw on you,

I smiled and said ?It?s me.?

I was with you at the grave today,

You tend it with such care.

I want to reassure you,

that I am not lying there.

Tonight you looked so very tired,

as you sank into a chair.

I tried so hard to let you know,

that I was standing there.

You sat there very quietly, then smiled,

I think you knew?

In the stillness of the evening,

I was very close to you.

And when the time is right

For you to cross the brief divide,

I?ll rush across to greet you

And we?ll stand side by side.

I have so many things to show you,

There is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out?

Then come home to me.
