What Can Be Dogs’ New Year’s Resolution?

Dog Lovers, Happy New Year!

The year of 2013 left us, and the usher 2014 stepped out from behind the curtain. And this is the perfect time for most individuals look back to the 12 months has gone. People also have become a habit of creating a New Year’s resolution. When we make such resolutions, we want to prove to ourselves something.

For example, we lay the cigarettes because they are unhealthy, and we will be successful in that. Or, possibly, we start dieting to fit into the old clothing again, sitting in the closet’s deep. It could happen that we want to spend more time in a sport, because we feel a lot of sitting work or drudgery increasingly destroying our bodies.

But, I played with an idea of what it would be if our dogs also make their New Year’s resolution. Please, visualize as your furry friends are reflecting on the alternatives they’ve made last year. Would they change something in 2014 or possibly not?

Dogs’ New Year’s Resolution

I’ve imagined what would be their resolution of our present dogs and who left us in the last decades. Well, let’s start with the youngest.

* Zizi is our eight-year-old rescued Labrador/German Shepherd mix, and her resolution could be something like this: “I resolve not to bark all times when thunder and lightning are happened. I know I need to be neglecting towards them, but somehow I felt indicated to bark. My loving owner and mentor tried to cease this habit. He did a consulting with his vet and achieved some results. This family loves me very much and I would like to honor their effort with some more progress.”

* Roll was the senior fellow when Zizi came to us. She also was a rescued canine. Unfortunately, she left us and vent to over the rainbow bridge.  Her mortal remains are buried in our garden. If she were alive, maybe this would be her New Year’s resolution: “I resolve not to bark on the mailman in the future. I totally understand that he has a job and has to provide his family. And if I think about this issue seriously I realize I sometimes may be reacted a too harsh way by leaping over the fence and barking loudly. I certainly did not seem a civilized dog, and that will change surely.”

* Nero also was a rescued mongrel, and his ancestors were totally unknown and Roll was brought here after his death in his twelve years. He finally rests in eternal peace in our garden. If he were alive, his resolution would be something like this: “I resolve not to dig holes under the bushes anymore. I know how upset was the wife of my master to discover the holes repeatedly. I heard many times individuals proclaiming that nobody would undertake such a trenching machine like I am, but I resolve to verify they are wrong.”

These came to my mind while I watched how Lisa and Zizi are playing joyfully in our yard. As far as my New Year’s resolution concerned I promise to be their loving and responsible owner and teacher.

My dog lover Friends, what would be your dog’s resolution to 2014?
