With the year coming to an end, what have you planned to change in the new year? New job? Save more money? Book that trip of a lifetime or even join the gym? Moving into a new year many of us have those thoughts of what we could do bigger and better next year.
But have you ever stopped to wonder what New Year’s Resolutions your pet would make if they had the chance? Here’s a few ideas and why they would be thinking of changing…enjoy!
Cut back on Home RenovationsHave you ever tried to get foam and feathers off you fur with your mouth! Yuk!
As much as I LOVE napping, I started to wonder why the couch appeared to be getting higher and higher! Then I realised I’d put on a couple of puppy pounds! Time for some extra exercise…
Only one downside of extra walks for me is that I won’t have time for home renovations as I’m exhausted after chasing balls and sniffing bottoms. The humans think this is a good thing for some reason??
I’ve heard the humans talking about my weight, then all of a sudden my morning treat stopped! What??? And no more human snacks either – well I suppose I need to start thinking about my beach body for summer..
I even heard that vet man talking about my weight – OK I get the message! Beach body here I come!!!
Last year the humans changed my name to “Stop Itching!” – bit of a weird choice of name….
But come to think about it - everything was itchy! My tummy…back…ears….and have you ever tried scratching an itch in between your toes when you only have your paws! Impossible….
Off to the vet we went and talked to that lovely vet man again! He said something about “food” – I’m in! Did someone say food?
My humans then came home one day with food that didn’t look like my normal food and within a week my name changed from “Stop Itching” back to “Bear” – weird hey. Plus, no more itching!!!
If I do get the odd itch the humans use this “Itchy Scratch spray” – it feels so cool and refreshing!
The humans have been talking recently about my breath! Apparently, it’s a little whiffy! What does that mean?
Now I love giving the humans kisses, especially surprise kisses but just recently the humans don’t love my kisses as much
So I guess I need to start taking a little more care of my teeth – but how?
The humans were talking about bones and something called “Dental Treats” – did I hear “Treats” – I’m in!
I see the humans brushing their teeth – perhaps there’s a toothbrush and paste for dogs? Now there’s an idea!
Ok, so I’ll try and cut back on digging holes – not sure if I can completely give it up!
I get a bit bored and my mind and nose wanders when the humans put me in the garden
After protecting the house, chasing birds and snoozing I’m alerted to a smell underground that I must investigate!
I dig and dig and dig and NOTHING! There was nothing there! Then I have all that yukky soil between my toes – yuk!
Just recently when I go back to the same place for some reason the humans have put my own poo in the hole! WHAT???? WHY?? It’s bad enough getting soil between my toes but getting that between my toes - no way!!! Yuk! Guess I’ll stop digging there now!
Recently a rope appeared attached to a tree and the humans have put treats in a container attached to the end – I’m going to get them I will I will – hours of fun!
The last part of my New Year Resolutions is to continue giving my humans unconditional love – but you know - that’s a given! I love my humans
So, when you are thinking about your New Year Resolutions perhaps include your fur baby after all you never know what they are thinking they too could have goals this year….
Happy New Year everyone!
