Jun 16, 2014 | Views: 1,181

Dear friends,

I wanted to share this to encourage everyone to be very kind to animals and to show love to them. These are good suggestions here. They may not be the only concern in your life, but to them you are their whole wide world. They have no one else but you. Be kind and loyal to them.

Tsem Rinpoche


 

These 20 essential facts all dog lovers must always keep in mind were written by DogHeirs.

These life lessons are sometimes easy to forget in our hectic lives, but when you remember that you are your dog’s whole world, these 20 truths are unforgettable.

 

1. Don’t ignore me for too long. I may only live for 10 to 15 years. It seems like forever when you’re away from me and it hurts my heart when I don’t know where you are.

2. Take me to new places to meet friendly people and animals. I might be frightened of them at first, but if you hold my paw through these new experiences, I’ll learn to be more confident and trusting of others. I really do love to meet new friends.

3. Don’t throw me away when new family members arrive. They are my family too and I will love and protect them as much as I love and protect you.

4. Don’t get mad at me when I jump up. I love you so much and sometimes I can’t help getting excited and wanting to give you a hug.

5. Teach me new things. I love making you happy so teach me what you’d like me to do. Learning is great exercise and I love it just as much as a run at the park.

6. Don’t get frustrated and give up on me. I don’t understand your language, but I’m trying my best to learn. Give me time to understand what you want of me because all I want to do is please you.

7. Don’t take out your stress on me. No matter how your day went, I am always happy to see you and will do whatever I can to make your day better.

8. Give me comfort when I’m scared. I always feel better when I’m with you and it may just take a moment before I understand that new things wont hurt me.

d08

“Poor dog’s terrifying first train ride…”

 

9. No matter how busy you are, try to spend a little bit of quality time with me every day. This is truly what I look forward to the most and every minute means so much to me.

d09

10. Don’t leave me outside when it’s too hot or too cold. I don’t have anywhere to go to stay cool or to keep warm and I don’t know how to escape if I’m in a desperate situation.

d10

11. Don’t forget the little things that keep me healthy and happy. My paws hurt if my toenails are too long and I feel much better after my coat has been brushed free of mats. I could even get sick if my teeth are too dirty. It’s only minutes of your time, but it means so much to me.

d11

12. Trust me. I trust you with all my heart, so please trust me too. You mean the world to me.

13. Don’t be angry with me for too long. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment. I have only you.

d13

14. Talk to me. I may not understand your words, but I understand your tone and body language.

d14

15. Always treat me with kindness. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it. The more you love me, the stronger our bond will be.

d15

16. Please don’t hit me. Remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you because I love you. If I did something wrong, I didn’t mean to make you angry, so please help me understand how to not repeat it. I would much rather give you kisses.

d16

17. Let me know whenever I’ve done something right. Nothing in the world makes me happier. I can tell when you’re pleased with me and if I know what I’ve done to make you smile, you can bet your life that I will try and do it again. And again, and again, and again…

d17

18. Pay attention to me if I’m not being myself. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, please check to see if something might be bothering me. My heart may be getting old, I may be unwell, or I could even be in pain.

d18

Photo credit: Hans Gotun

 

19. Take care of me when I get old, just as much as you cared for me when I was a puppy. When I was young, you spent so much time cuddling me and touching my soft fur. My fur might not be as soft and I am no longer small, but my love for you has only grown stronger.

d19

20. Come with me on difficult journeys. I understand that it’s hard for you, but please stay with me until the very end. Everything is better, easier and safer for me if you are with me. Remember, I love you.

    Dogs have feelings and they know more than we think. When we adopt them, it is a commitment for life and we must treat them as a member of our family. It is our duty and responsibility to take care of them as we would our children.

    In return they are the best companion one can have. They will hang on to your every word even though they may not know the language. They will love and trust you. My dog, before he passed, he would always go to his recuperation corner whenever he didn’t feel well. It’s as though he wanted to feel comforted. It was very touching.

    Cut a long story short, they are deserving of our care and attention and love.

  3. Stella Cheang on Jun 22, 2017 at 7:57 pm

    I bet if our pets can speak human language, they will give us these advice too. The amazing thing about having pets is that each and everyone of them have their unique character, and with it, the pace and way they like to interact with us. My cat, Charlie, was an introvert, and she enjoyed to be left alone but she would curled up at the corner of my bed near my foot nightly. It’s her way of bonding. In my exam years, I had a Matties-mixed who used to spend late nights in my room, staying by the door guarding over me (to study). Once exam was over, she did not bother to come into the room anymore. Bonding with our pet needs time and patience, it is not something that can be done in 1 day, 1 week or 1 month. But once the relationship is established, it is unbreakable.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for this article, it really resonated with me, being a dog lover. Now, I really miss my family’s dogs back home in Malaysia. I really hope that this article will help other people, like it had helped me, realise just how precious and loving a dog can be, and how we can be the brightest light in their lives as they do their best to be the brightest in our lives.

    Thank you, Rinpoche. _/|\_

    Your Student,
    Keng Hwa.

    This is probably one of my favourite articles on the blog! As a fellow dog lover and owner i not only found this article entertaining, but also very knowledgable. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these 20 facts with us. I hope that it would help many people take care of their dogs better.

    I would like to address fact number 19. I found this one to stand out from the rest of the facts. This is because many people buy or adopt dogs when they are young pups just because they are cute. But then when they get older they neglect them and don’t take care of them, because they are no longer cute. This is not the way to think and treat your pets. You should be there for your dog from the beginning till the very end.

    Lastly, i would like to address fact number 9. It is very important that we spend at least a little time with our dogs everyday. I agree 100% with fact no.9 as it explains that our dogs really look forward to seeing us and spending every second with us. It doesn’t take so much effort from us and it makes them happy. Win win.

  7. Joy on Sep 8, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    Beautiful pictures, beautiful creatures, beautiful coexistence. Really a man’s best friend and with that saying, we should do everything in our power and will to never hurt them, harm them and instead protect them! And it would be awesome if we could spread this same love to other creatures, other animals, and no limit it to just dogs. We don’t need to keep all of them as pets, kiss them or take pictures of them, how about trying to at least not eat them https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/win-a-manjushri-statue.html, that’ll be great start for some real humanity to begin 🙂

  8. Lucas Roth on Sep 6, 2014 at 10:55 am

    All these facts are completely true and tell so much about how you should take care of your dogs. Firstly I love dogs so much and the moment you take them home, they are officially family and you cannot abandon them because of sickness or they are replaced. Because the love that they give you is so much it is off the scale and they would help you no matter what so we must help them.

    One thing I would like to say is Rinpoche is totally correct in the beginning of the post it says that they are not around for a long tim and we should appreciate them and love them because we are all they have. Even though they can be a small part of our lives, nothing will love you more. So love and appreciate them.

    I will always remember these tips because I love animals and especially dogs. They are lives too and if we were them we would want more than what they ask for so treat them like people with needs and work with them and stay with them until the end because their love for us is forever lasting.

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 20, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    Thanks this is quite a meaningful article for me now that I have dogs of my own.

  10. Edward Ooi on Aug 3, 2014 at 11:49 pm

    I agree 100% with all of the facts stated above, especially with number 16. We see / hear a lot of animal cruelty cases predominantly dog abuse. They definitely have the capability of crushing our bones with their jaws, the reason why they don’t fight back is because they know what is love, they have feelings. When animals are threatened, they will do anything to keep themselves safe, not to mention that dogs as well, that’s why they have their sharp teeth and unique jaws. If you’re walking on the streets and suddenly some random person walk up to you and give you a punch in the face, there’s no way you’ll not fight back or just let that person go. When animals don’t fight back, it doesn’t mean that they don’t feel anything, it’s because they are capable of forgiving. If we have decided to keep a pet, we have to take care of it, it’s our responsibility. How the animal behaves reflects the owner, keeping a pet is a life-long commitment, once it’s yours, it will always be yours, until the day it dies.

    Thanks Rinpoche for showing me how to care more,it’s so inspiring and I love the photos.

  12. June Tang(khjb) on Jul 14, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming pictures.These 20 essential facts are really meaningful and the pets owner should keep on mind to take care and love their pets like their family.

  13. Julien Roth on Jul 3, 2014 at 12:01 am

    I am a dog lover and I loved this post! It’s so inspiring and I love the photos Rinpoche! 😀

  14. thierry on Jun 28, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    Great advises!
    I notice nbr 19. for indeed, the soft fur and sweet smell of a puppy, the very thing that made most of us adopt a dog, this is gone, and instead, it is hard, sparces, falling fur, dry crimpled and flaky skin, the smell is very different too, but one thing remains, is the love in the eyes and the comfort I can see when I pet my old shivering dogs.

  15. Boon on Jun 28, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. I like this quote from the article “They may not be the only concern in your life, but to them you are their whole wide world”. It is very meaningful quote for us.

  16. Pastor Han Nee on Jun 26, 2014 at 10:23 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this most touching and heart-warming post.
    Reading it and viewing the pictures, which say a million words for these adorable furry beings, I now realize that in showing love and care for these beings, we are engaging the innate kindness that is in all of us.

    Indeed, when we can care for these beings who are loving and caring and loyal and faithful, we are showing real altruism. Why because they can’t say “Thank you’. They can’t say “I love you”. Yet their soulful eyes and body language say all this for them. Only we must give them the time and the care they deserve, whether they are young or old.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always making us see more and care more and for kindling the inherent kindness in us ALL.

  17. Jacinta Goh on Jun 24, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    If I were to given the right, I’ll vote for number 14. I like the picture and the cache ‘Talk to me. I may not understand your words, but I understand your tone and body language’. All of us have emotions and I am sure they do too! I truly hope all the pet owners will better understanding of their pets more through this article. Last but not least, when one of our relatives is passing away, we will try our best to be by their side. Hopefully, they do have someone by their side too, especially the owner! Thank you Rinpoche for this.

  18. AdelineTan on Jun 23, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    I feel so nice and happy to see these lovely people in the pictures really taking good care of their pet dogs! They all deserve that because dogs are very loyal and make good companions. They also protect their owners and their family members and their properties.Therefore dogs owners must always remember these 20 essential facts. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Patsy on Jun 23, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    Pets have feelings too. Just that they can’t expressed themselves verbally but their actions through their loyalty show that they care much for their owners. As owners, we should treat our pet as our family and take good care of them. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  20. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jun 23, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    We should care and love the doggie if we decide adopted them.Don’t treat them as part time pet toy.

  21. Beatrix Ooi on Jun 23, 2014 at 2:09 am

    Thank You for the facts Rinpoche, they are so true yet so touching. We might have hundreds of friends but if its to be compared, I think our pet is the bestest and closest friend we can have. Our pet might be just a passer in our life, but to our pet we are the only one to rely on.

  22. Edward Ooi on Jun 22, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    These facts are so interesting and touching. If we humans have the ability to communicate with animals, I don’t believe anyone would hurt them. Some people like my uncle used hit his dog just because he poop on the floor. They don’t mean to poo on the floor, they simply poo around is because we did not train them properly. And that is the cause of everything.

  23. Uncle Eddie on Jun 21, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    It is said that, “Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he’s owned a dog”. Man’s conduct with regards to animals should be regulated by humanly right reasons, which prohibits infliction of purposeless pains and sufferings on them. To ill-treat and make animals to suffer without reason is an act of deplorable cruelty to be condemned from any religious point of view. Especially like those sadistic painful sufferings inflicted on the dog called Tara in Rinpoche’s blog, which is an exhibition of sadism and insanity to the highest degree, which every moralist must denounced and condemned! It is one of these things we need to consider seriously, if we want to improve today’s society, and make today,s world a much more better, harmonise, peaceful world to live in for all, humans, animals or otherwise. Om mani padme hung.

  24. Edwin Tan on Jun 20, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The above 20 facts are really so meaningful. If only all pet owners will remember those and remember that pets and animals have lives too…and can feel pain, hurt, happiness, sadness and more..then maybe animal abuse will be lesser.

    Pets are family and not toys to be played a while only to be discarded later.

    Thank you for such wonderful facts to be remembered and the heartwarming images.

  25. Lucas Roth on Jun 20, 2014 at 1:20 am

    I am a mega dog lover and all these are so true, dogs are lives and they feel, learn and understand you. They are there for you more than your closest friends! You mean so much to them even though they are a small part of your lives.

  26. Wah Ying on Jun 20, 2014 at 12:52 am

    Love our pets like loving our family. Love is beyond human and human, with love between human and animals as well.

  27. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 19, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    I really touched when I read this post!!!I also hope many can read this post then change our attitude towards our puppy, kitten and all other animals. Don’t hurt them by your emotion, don’t eat them by your desire, don’t bite them just because you not enough patient, don’t scold just because today is not your day…the reason is very simple: “They may not be the only concern in your life, but to them you are their whole wide world. They have no one else but you. Be kind and loyal to them.” I like what Rinpoche remind us. Thank you! Very good reminder, this post should be read again and again, in case we forget!

  28. Shelly tai on Jun 18, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these heart warming picture as I read along I feel so touch, very true we should treat our pet like our own family members, no matters under what circumstances we should not abandoned them love them and take care of them.

  29. freon on Jun 18, 2014 at 2:01 am

    The 20 essential facts make my heart go soft after reading this blog post. Seems that the way i treat my dogs is wrong and cruel….. I learned a lot from this 20 sentences.

    Thanks Rinpoche for showing me how to care more

  30. Jutika Lam on Jun 17, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the above 20 essential facts for dog lovers.

    To me this 20 facts shouldn’t just apply to dogs but to other pets such as cats and etc. They are all also animals that want love and care from their owners.

    It isn’t just dog owners that take care of their dog when they are puppies and then tend to neglect or even send their old dogs away to the animal shelter, I have seen on animals shelter webpages that even lots of cats, birds, hamsters and so many other pets are sent to animal shelters when they are older.

    By the way: All 20 pictures above are soooo heartwarming, such a vute attack!

    Love
    Jutika

  31. Sean Wang on Jun 17, 2014 at 10:15 pm

    Thank you for sharing these cute little things. The photos are so adorable, aren’t they 😀 Animals are friends, our loyal companions, we should not ever let them be in harms way for our own selfish goals.

  32. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 17, 2014 at 10:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing. All points are so right, and the last one just brings tears to my eyes. Till the last moment I will.

  33. Sharon Ong on Jun 17, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche. I enjoyed this post very much. Love the heartwarming photos. 🙂

    These reliefs and sculptures reflect a diverse school of Esoteric Buddhism that highlighted the faction of Liu Benzun (855 – 907), a pious layman of Sichuan province who became venerated for his asceticismand spiritual perfection. The three traditions Huayun, Pure Land and Zen are represented, blended with Confucianism.

    Dorje Shugden’s Dice Divination

    Divination is one of the ways enlightened beings and Buddhas communicate with ordinary beings. While some highly realised masters such as H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and the Mahasiddha Tagpu Pemavajra can perceive the Buddhas directly and receive instructions, teachings and advice from them, most ordinary people cannot. And so divinations is one of the methods by which we can receive the Buddhas’ advice too.

    A lot of evidence based on psychology states that most animal cruelty cases is all about power or control. The abuser feels powerless and develops a warped sense of self-respect. Eventually they feel strong only by being able to dominate a person or animal.

    According to Robert K. Ressler, a profiler of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said “Murderers… very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids”, a connection that was recognized by the FBI since the 1970’s. In Psychology studies, according to a 1997 study done by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and Northeastern University, animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people and four times more likely to commit property crimes than are individuals without a history of animal abuse. Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the past 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders often have history of animal abuse since childhood.

    Take for example, society’s most notorious serial killer, Jeffery Dahmer who murdered 17 men and boys. He was known to have dismembered animals since a young age

    In 1984, Alvaro Munera became permanently disabled and confined to a wheel chair for life… he was only 18 years old when that happened. Munera had been a bullfighter since the age of 12, and a successful one. Despite being the most celebrated bullfighter at that time, he often doubted his career choice. He felt that it was brutal, but ignored how he felt whenever he had to kill a bull. He stayed at the peak of his career until his 22nd match… the bull tore his left leg and tossed him into the air. When he landed his spinal cord and cranial was severely injured. This left him paralyzed from the waist down for life.

    A few months after this incident, Munera went to America for physical rehabilitation. Being brought up thinking that bullfights are normal and “part of life”, Munera was then exposed to a whole new environment… an environment that actively fights against animal cruelty.

    Instead of blaming the bull for paralyzing him for life, Munera became anti-taurino.

    I find Munera’s story very inspiring. Instead of blaming others, Munera bit the bullet, realized and accepted his own wrongful action. Now, he has decided to devote his life to fight for animals rights till the day he dies.

    Some things you just have to see no matter how you feel. It lets you know what happens behind the scenes. Things manufacturers do not want you to see, but you are stronger than that for you must see.

    It was extremely disturbed and upset to see such cruelty inflicted on such harmless beings. About 95% of the hundreds of thousands of seals slaughtered are below 3 months old!! While many other countries such as America and the European Union has banned the use of seal fur, Canada has yet to implement the same ban… The rate of baby seals being killed increases every year.

    In 2011, 38,000 harp seals were killed… In 2012, 70,000 harp seals were killed in commercial seal hunting. That’s twice the amount from the previous year!

    In Georgia, there is a wild animal rescue center called Noah’s Ark. The sanctuary was created to provide a home for abused, unwanted, and orphaned children and animals. How beautiful…

    Noah’s Ark has been on global news lately, as 3 of their rescued wild animals have become best friends. It doesn’t seem very interesting at first, until you watch the video and realize that the 3 bestfriends are an American black bear, a lion and a Bengal tiger! They all play, eat and cuddle together in the same pen!

    The 3 different animals were rescued 12 years ago, when they were just little cubs. They were abused and neglected by drug dealers. When they were rescued by Noah’s Ark, each had gone through very bad physical experiences… The bear had grown into his harness, and it was so deeply embedded into his skin that it had to be surgically removed!

    Leo (the lion) Baloo (the bear) and Shere Kahn (the tiger), have become to close that when the trainers try to separate them, they would all act out. They are only happy when they are together hehe

    This is an amazing story of a pig that kneeled in front of a temple as if it is paying homage. The pig did not kneeled for a few minutes but it kneeled for hours until the monk chanted a Buddhits scripture to it. Unfortunately, the pig was slaughtered after that.

    The pig must have been a Dharma practitioner in its previous lives, and the Dharma imprint was very strong in it. Otherwise, how to explain when it kneeled in front of the temple for hours? It must know that it will die soon, the Buddhist chanting would help it to calm down before its death and helped it to go to a better place.

    Now that we are in the human form, we should practice the Dharma, purify our karma so we don’t go to a bad place. When we take rebirth as an animal, we will not be able to purify our karma and it will take us a very long time before we take rebirth in human form again.

    There are many natural things we can consume to keep us healthy or prevent serious sickness such as cancer. It is always better to prevent than to cure.

    We should reduce the consumption of processed food and whenever possible, consume unprocessed food. People start to realise how much pesticide and chemicals are used to produce vegetables, now many have started to grow their own food.

    However, when we are sick, we still have to go to see a doctor and seek for medical attention. With a positive mind and healthy life style, we will be able to maintain healthy body.

    Wonderful Laos

    Many visitors are attracted to its laid-back lifestyle, enchanting temples, mysterious plains, ethnic mountain villages and beautiful sunsets, especially by the scenery surrounding the Mekong, which explains why the word Lao means “please don’t rush”. If you’re looking for a place that has spirituality, somewhere that is a little different, a country that’s somewhat off the beaten track, Laos is a country that many will not regret visiting.

    Planning to travel? Why not consider Laos: http://bit.ly/2VVgQ5L

    Unlike most children his age, Luiz Antonio wants to eat his vegetables. It’s the other stuff that apparently gives him second thoughts.

    As evidence, YouTube user Flavia Cavalcanti has an adorable video, originally uploaded in Portuguese, of little Luiz struggling to comprehend the origins of his meal. Potato? Easy enough. Rice? Sure. Octopus gnocchi? Fat chance.

    In a recently uploaded version with English subtitles, Luiz dances around the subject a bit, asking simple questions trying to grasp how, exactly, the “legs” of an octopus ended up on his plate; more importantly, he wonders, what happened to the rest of the octopus?

    “Is his head still in the sea?” Luiz asks his mom, who responds, “It’s at the fish market.”

    “The man chopped it?” Luiz asks. His mom then informs him that all animals we eat, even chickens, are chopped up, prompting the sharp realization, “No! Those are animals!”

    “So… when we eat animals they die!” a wide-eyed Luiz acknowledges. “Why do they die? I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up… These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!”

    After that epiphany, Luiz realizes his mom has been touched by his compassion.

    “Why are you crying?” he asks.

    “I’m not crying,” his mother responds. “I’m just touched by you.”

    “I’m doing something beautiful?” Luiz wonders aloud, prompting his mom to direct him back to the plate, “Eat! No need to eat the octopus, all right?”

    Wow … the first title published by Kechara Comics in Nepali. That is wonderful now with this Nepali version comic more and more Nepalis people will get to read , understand about Dorje Shugden. Looking at those comic pictures tells us a thousand words even those who could not read it. It’s a good way sharing , as in Malaysia alone there are thousands of Nepalis foreign workers working here.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Thank you for sharing this amazing and interesting video about oracles. A rare opportunity where we are given the chance to view those videos. Oracles acts as a medium through whom advice or prophecy was sought. In Tibet tradition oracles have played, and continue to play, an important part in religion, doctrine, and prophecy. Tibetans rely on oracles for various reasons such as healing of their diseases and on all important occasions. In Tibet, they have the Nechung Oracle and other oracles. The purpose of the oracles is not just to forecast the future but do assist in decision-making and providing intelligence on state matters. I have seen mediums taking trance and it is much different from Tibetans oracles from what I saw from these videos. Hopefully the Tibetan tradition oracles could be preserved , where more will benefit. One such famous oracle is the Panglung oracle where the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden took trance . In fact had helped HH Dalai Lama escaped from the Chinese invasion in Tibet to India back 1959. As advice by the oracle Chushi Gangdruk guerrilla group was formed and had escorted Dalai Lama safely into exile.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
