犬の十戒 The Ten Commandments of Dog Ownership

 こんにちは、今日も快晴、ブログ訪問ありがとうございます。


犬についてネットで調べていると、犬の十戒という物を見つけました。


英文の詩ですが、作者不明だそうです。有名な詩らしいですね。


原文はこちらです。私は翻訳できるほど英語が上手くないので、


日本語訳は 犬の十戒 で検索してみてください、


いろんな人が訳していますね。


読んでるとまた涙が出てきます。。
 
My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you get along with me. 

Give me time to understand what you want of me. 

Place your trust in me- it's crucial to my Well-being. 

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

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

Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it. 

Remember before you hit me that l have teeth that could easily crush the bones of your hand but that I choose not to bite you. 

Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food or I've been out in the sun too long or my heart is getting old and weak. 

Take care of me when I get old ; you, too, will grow old. 

Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it ." or " Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember I love you.
