Marriage Vows From Dogs
Although I am sure that most of you have read my post Marriage Vows For Dogs, I have felt at odds with myself lately because I failed to recognize the vows that my dogs have made to me in a post. So, here is the mirror of the original post, from a dog’s point of view:
I, (animal who will devote my entire being to you in five seconds flat) take you, (hopefully decent person) to accept full and complete responsibility for every aspect of my life from now on.
For better (meaning that you do everything possible to give me a good life) or for worse (meaning that you will treat me as a passing amusement).
For richer (meaning you will spoil me with pets and loves and kid words) and poorer (meaning you will starve me of love and attention).
In sickness (meaning you will care for me and clean up my nasty messes when I am ill) and in health (meaning that you will do your best to walk me, brush me, and bathe me even if I get sprayed by a skunk or roll in poo).
To love (meaning I will give every part of my heart to you) and to cherish (meaning no matter what you do I will always forgive you).
From this day forward (meaning as soon as you pat me I will love you unconditionally), until death do us part (meaning that I will love you to the very end).
Dogs love unconditionally, unequivocally, and forever. They will worship you and forgive you and comfort you regardless of what you have said or done. They will greet you at the door every single day with a wagging tail, gaping smile, and an overwhelming joy. Do your best to deserve every single second that they give you.
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”—Unknown
