New Year’s resolutions of a pet parent
The old year, for better or worse, is gone… the New Year has arrived. Here’s our chance to start fresh, to have another shot at success…at glory…at just accomplishing what we resolve to.
We all love our doggies…we pamper them and try to give them the best, but sometimes we forget to take care of their basic needs…we are either too busy or ignorant about some of their requirements.
As a pet parent, here are some of the New Year’s resolutions I would like to take for the love of my pet:
- No matter how much I love my sleep, I will get up in the morning and take Jimmy out for his daily walk.
- I will be careful not to leave anything around that seems harmless to me but can be harmful to my doggy. In short, I will pet proof my home now.
- My friend Jimmy is a Pomeranian but there are many facts about him that I still do not know. I will try to read more about the Poms and be a better pet parent (though I think I am a fairly food pet parent!).
- Even thogh I love to groom my pet, I sometimes just let Jimmy have his way due to dearth of time. But now, I will groom him everyday.
- Though I never leave Jimmy alone, still I will put an identification tag around his neck, just in case he decides to explore the streets alone.
- I will teach a new trick to Jimmy, which can be fun for both of us.
- I will spend atleast one hour of unadulterated fun time with Jimmy.
- I dread visiting a doctor but still I will take my Jimmy for his regular check-ups to his vet.
- I will make a resolution not to give him table scraps, which are not good for his health.
- I will feed a stray animal everyday. After all, they also need our love and care to live in this world…and not to forget, they guide our housing societies in return of nothing.
New Year’s resolutions of Jimmy, my canine friend
- I’ll remember that the ‘oh so tempting’ dustbin contains things to throw and is not a plaything.
- Before entering the home, I will shake off rainwater off my coat and clean my paws on the doormat.
- I will not look at my pet parents with adorable eyes when they are eating that delicious kebab cake.
- I will not chew the ever-delicious crayons or pens.
- On a drive, I will not insist on having the car windows rolled down.
- I will remember not to pull on the leash even if I see my beautiful Jane passing by.
- I will not run out every time the gate opens (though I would love to!).
