5 Things I Want My Dog at Home to Know

  1. 1. It’s not you; it’s me.

    I wish we could play all day every day, but I need to go away and get an education.

  2. 2. I wish I could take you with me...

    But I don’t think you’d like my messy dorm room or being woken up at 2:30 AM when I come back from the library. 

  3. 3. I’ll think about you every day.

    I’ll talk about you to anybody who asks (or doesn’t ask) if I have pets at home. 

  4. 4. Whenever I see a dog on campus...

    I’ll stop to pet it and wish you were there with me.

  5. 5. Don’t be sad; I’ll be back again soon!
