New Years Resolutions

It’s hard to believe that twenty ten is over. Everyone is making their New Year’s resolutions and planning New Years Eve parties. It seemed as though Christmas came and went so quickly. And now it’s time to give the season one last hurrah by celebrating the new year. For many of us, the new year means a chance to try again. It’s a chance to press the reset button and start over. This year, even our dogs have resolutions and want to improve their daily lives! Here is their list of new years resolutions;

  1. Resist the temptation to run across the road to get the squirrel in the neighbor’s yard.
  2. Stay out of the cat’s litter box. “Kitty box crunchies” are not food.
  3. Introduce myself in more appropriate ways.
  4. I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
  5. Stay away from the kid’s stuffed toys, or at least hide them in really good places when I’m done with them.
  6. Tolerate those homemade bandannas more.
  7. Shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE I enter the house.
  8. Try to stare at owner for hours on end till they take me for a walk.
  9. Recognize the difference between furniture and fire hydrants.
  10. I will not eat the cat’s food before or after they eat it.
  11. Meet and greet every single dog that comes across my path with the usual friendly sniffing gesture.
  12. Find more interesting things to roll in.
  13. Try to convince owner that I am a lapdog no matter how big I am.
  14. We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
  15. Be more resourceful when sneaking food out of the garbage, from the kid’s hands and off the tables and kitchen counters.
  16. Only chase the cat when nobody’s looking.
