Zoey the Cute Dachshund wants you to love her (and give her treats).

Zoey the Cute Dachshund wants you to love her (and give her treats).

I deserve treats. I deserve to be carried on walks if I don’t want to get my feet cold or am a bit peeked. And I deserve to get presents for my birthday, Christmas and any dog-related holidays. (My birthday is in 13 days on Dec. 20, when I will turn 6.)

In other words, I deserve to be loved, admired, cared for and pampered.

Here are my suggestions for expressing puppy love:

  • Kiss me in the morning.
  • Let me kiss you back with doggie licks.
  • Give me treats whenever you leave.
  • Kiss me before you leave.
  • Don’t leave me for too long.
  • If you have to leave me for more than eight hours, send me to Doggie Day Camp.
  • Quickly come back and let me know that you missed me. I certainly let you know that I missed you with my tail wags and exposed belly.
  • Make sure my blanket is set up on our bed, so that I can have extra softness for sleeping.
  • Take me on walks, but carry me when I’m tired (see above).
  • Love me all the time.
  • Tell me how cute I am, or did I already say that?

I don’t have a 12th one, so just continue loving me, unconditional and constant. Or how about keep me as your screensaver on your phone, computer and any other electronic device? Keep pictures of me wherever possible to be a reminder that you love, love me.

Ways to Love Your Dog

In All About Me, Being Cute, Shelley Widhalm on October 28, 2012 at 11:30 am

This is an obvious way to love your dog by hosting a birthday party just for them. Zoey’s birthday is Dec. 20, and she would like you to put the date in your calendar.

There are many places to get ideas for loving your dog.

Shelley, my BFF, is writing about where to find story ideas.

Yeah, whatever. She only needs to know where to find me – at her apartment eagerly awaiting her return whenever she leaves. Or when she’s here, well, I’m where there is a loud bark or a quiet sigh as I think about my day.

To love dogs like me, here are a few tips:

  • Mark all animal- and dog-related holidays on your calendar, and celebrate those holidays with kisses and treats.
  • Take us on walks every day.
  • Give us treats, lots of them.
  • Buy us cute outfits, so that we get attention.
  • Give us opportunities to socialize, because we don’t want to sit around and do nothing.
  • Pet us, a lot, because touch is important.
  • Make a big poster that says, “I Love My Dog” and hang it in a prominent place, both in our home and your office.
  • Take us to the office and tell your co-workers that we’re dog-terns.
  • Love us, unconditionally, even when we’re naughty. Being naughty is part of the fun of being alive, right?

And last, but not least, tell us you love us every single day.
