You are not the only one turning over a new leaf for the New Year!
We polled all the cool dogs around town and put together an awesome list for you.
1 - “I will stop eating cat poo out of the litter box.”
Look, I get it, I know this seems pretty disgusting to my humans. However, to us dogs, it’s like eating a gourmet snack! I do love my humans and aim to please them in all ways - so the cat poo is now off limits! And I bet it will help my breath smell better too!
2 - “I will stop pulling the stuffing out of my plush toys”.
I can’t tell you how fun and challenging this is to do. It gives me a huge sense of accomplishment when all the white stuff is out on the floor. But, I also realize it makes you feel like you are just wasting your money. I promise to take better care of my precious toys and let the stuffing stay “inside” the toy where it belongs.
3 - “ I will stop marking my territory inside the house.”
Although it gives me a sense of the Alpha dog (and yes, this is so important to me), I also realize I am stinking up the house like nobody’s business. I’m guessing that I am driving you nuts having to always clean up behind me too. I am truly sorry and will only mark outside!!
4 - “I will start cleaning my private parts in private!
I really don’t see what the big deal is because we all have private parts. But your reaction to my licking and gnawing says it all. I will wait for lights out or when you are away. Deal?
5 - Dumpster Diving?
Do I really have to change this? This is such fun exploration and a doggie never knows what they will find. The rewards could be huge! But I see your expression and I hear you loud and clear on this one. “I will stop digging through the trash after you leave.” Cross my paw heart.
6 - “I promise to only bark when it is absolutely needed.”
I realize you probably do not need to know about every squirrel that runs by the window. I will only notify you of “red alerts” so that I don’t needlessly wake you up.
7 - “ I will stop begging for food.”
I just need you to understand how hard it is to ignore the fact that you are eating scrumptious turkey, chicken, and potatoes. Hey, I know…maybe if you put some of this (I mean the same thing you are eating) in my bowl from time to time, I wouldn’t have to beg. I would know it’s coming and could be patient. Just saying….
8 - “I will stop trying to pull you along when walking on the leash.”
There are just times that I am so excited about going for a walk that I forget that I need to walk beside you. You could help me out here a little, though, by picking up the pace!
9 - “I will take my time eating supper so that I can properly digest my food.”
I admit it, dogs don’t have a lot of self-control when it comes to eating our favorite food. But, in an effort to enjoy the moment and taste the food a little longer, I will slow it down and chew, chew, chew.
10 - “ I will stop peeing when I’m so excited.”
This makes me look like a “snook” I know. I must have better self-control and bladder control. I won’t lose my mind when that sweet girl starts baby talking me, I promise.
11 - Last but not least by any means, “I will STOP chasing the family cat”.
What can I say, this is nothing but fun, fun, fun. That crazy cat flirts with me and prisses by almost daring me to chase them. But I know that this creates a lot of problems inside the house. Especially when we turn over your expensive stuff and break them. I always get in trouble and the cat never does. I’m done with this - My cat chasing days are over for good!
