犬の十戒
ペットブームの影で無責任な飼い主により犠牲になっている犬たちがいます。飼い主に捨てられたその中の多くは炭酸ガスなどによる殺処分というやり方で、無残に死んで行かざるを得ません。

 『犬の十戒』という英詩を初めて読んだ時、なんだかそんな犬たちからの声を聞いた気がしました。『犬の十戒』は世界中の不幸な犬の声を代弁した素敵な詩だと思います。相手の立場に立って物事を考えるって、人間が持った素晴らしい能力だと思うのです。

 犬の気持ちになって自分自身を見つめ直してみませんか?

My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years.
Any separation from yon will be painful for me.
Remember that before you buy me.


Give me time to understand
what you want of me.


Place your trust in me-it's crucial tu my Well-beinqg


Don't be angry at me for long
and don't lock me up as punishment.
You have your work, your entertainment and your friends.
I have only you.


Talk to me sometimes.
Even if don't understand your words,
I understand you by your voice speaking to me.


Be aware how you treat me.
I'll never forget it.


Remember before you hit me
that l have teeth
that could easily crush the bones of your hand,
but that l choose not to bite you.


Before you scold me
for being uncooperative,obstinate or lazy,
ask yourself if someting might be bothering me.
Perhaps I'm not getting enough food
or I've been ont in the sun too long
or my heart is getting old and weak


Take care of me when I get old;
you,too,will grow old.


Be with me on my last joumey.
Never say, "l can't bear to watch it,"
or "Let it happen in my absence."
Everything is easier for me if you are there.
Remember I love you.
