Christmas Message 2019 – Wednesday 25th December 2019

Christmas Message 2019

Well dear pups, my Christmas Message 2019 is likely to be my last Christmas Message. I hope that Wilma will have learnt enough to continue the wisdom for me by next year, but for now it’s still me with all that my life has taught me.

The Greatest is Love

Pups, there is nothing more important in this world than love. Sadly, it is what is missing all too often. If you love your fellow men or dogs you think twice before you are impatient with them. You take care not to upset them. You don’t pee on their shoes or find other ways to annoy them deliberately. If you love those around you then you try to do good things for them, take care for them, take time to have a kind word for them and you listen to what they need. It is not about diving into your food bowl and leaving them hungry. It’s not about nestling down in your favourite blanket and leaving them cold. If you love those around you then you make sure they are warm and well fed, even before yourself.

Even in adversity

The hardest part can be continuing to give love when that is not what you receive in return, but I’m telling you pups, that is what you should do. It isn’t weak to respond with kindness when you face hardness in return, it is strength. If you can continue to love, despite the difficulties then you will be doing something wonderful.

A message to Love yourself too this Christmas

This world has many people who are unhappy. Pups, you need to help them to learn to love themselves. I don’t mean to put themselves first at the expense of others, but to see themselves as worthy of love. You dogs can play a very important part in that. By giving love to a human who does not see themselves as lovable, you can change their lives and that is what you must do. Humans need to learn that each and every one of them is lovable and that they are special. So pups this Christmas I’m sending you all out to spread love. Spread love to each and every human you meet and in turn help them to spread love to their fellow humans and back to us.

There is no limit to love. In fact, the more you give, the more you’ll find there is to go around.

Happy Christmas to all you pups and humans
