#450 Aphorisms and the dog

APHORISM:

A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE EXPRESSING A WISE OR CLEVER OBSERVATION OR A GENERAL TRUTH:


1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.


2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.


3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.


4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.


5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.


6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?


7. Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.


8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?


9. Scratch a cat and you will have a permanent job.


10. No one has more driving ambition than the boy who wants to buy a car.


11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.


12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 AM. It could be a right number.


13. No one ever says "It's only a game." when their team is winning.


14. I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.


15. Be careful reading the fine print. There's no way you're going to like it.


16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.


17. Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos? (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)


18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.


19. After 50, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead!!


20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter!

Thought you'd find this interesting. Talk about animal intelligence and bonding with humans!

Remember that they can't do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!

A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.........

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.


2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.


3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.


4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.


5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.


6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.


7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choosenot to bite you.

8. 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 have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me pl ease. Never say you can't bear to watch.

Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.

Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters

~Now please share this with other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs! Dogs and Cats are our friends. Treat them kindly.
