I haven’t made New Year’s Resolutions for myself in 5 years. Why? Well, you already know. Because I never keep them! Improvement of oneself is an on-going daily struggle so if I fail one day then I start again the next, regardless of the time of year. However, making New Year’s resolutions to my dog is a commitment I take seriously.
I NEVER want to disappoint my dog.
To my Luna Buna~
In my mind, I’m already a mom. Yeah, a dog mom, but I get the lovey-dovey feelings everytime I look at you, my precious fur-baby, and ready to kill when anyone or thing tries to harm you. Whenever I look at puppy photos of you I tear up, you’re growing so fast!
Here are the ways I’ll be a better dog mom to you in 2019
- Update the information on your microchip.
- God forbid I ever lose you! If you ever got lost I’d never forgive myself for not having the right info out of sheer laziness.
- Boost your self-confidence
- I know you get nervous around other dogs or when you’re left alone. We’ll take time each day to practice these scenarios until you get comfortable.
- Teach you a new trick – how to bow
- It’s customary in Korea to bow. Also, people aren’t really used to dogs here, thus being scared when they see you. If we greet them with a friendly bow, how can they be scared of a polite doggy?
- Get you off the processed kibble!
- It must be so boring to eat the same thing every day for years! I believe natural + fresh is best so why wouldn’t I do the same for my fur baby? Home-cooked balanced meals for you!
- Trilingual doggo
- Spanish is your mother tongue, English is your second language. It’s time to add Korean to the list! It’s always good to learn your commands in the country you’re living in.
- First things first – play time!
- I know your favorite time to play is as soon as I get out of bed. It’s a good idea for both of us to get our blood pumping, bodies moving and enjoy a delicious breakfast afterwards. Perfect way to start the day.
I want you to have the happiest + healthiest life possible. I’m already regretting the times you dropped a squeaky toy at my feet and I just ignored you. But whenever I even whisper your name you come running every time. You always protect me by barking at grandmothers who stop us on the street to ask for directions. I don’t know what I’d do without you.
