1. We are valued family members.
We don’t live in cages or shelters. We aren’t possessions. We aren’t tied up in yards. We don’t live outside in dog houses or in garages. We live in homes with people who love us and share their lives with us. Sometimes they even share their beds, but if they don’t, we have special beds just for us. Always close. We eat good, healthy food. We have toys, which we sometimes share with other dogs. We take rides and sometimes go on vacations. We are included, and our presence is welcomed. We are loved.
