Australians are being urged to remember and honour Dog during the upcoming festive season and to seek further opportunities to allow Dog to become the focal point of their end of year celebrations.
Aussies are being reminded that the true message of Dog is found not only within the four walls of the institutions which brought them into contact with Dog, but that the love of Dog can be found in their homes and parks and beaches and cafes – everywhere.
Take comfort, they are advised, in the knowledge that Dog is one constant in an ever-changing world. Even during times when new ways of thinking and social upheaval threaten to destroy our belief in Dog, Dog will always be there.
Australians should also ensure they turn their attention to Dog even during the hectic, busy and stressful period that marks the lead up to Christmas. In an effort to help the good people of Australia to do so, below is a list of practical recommendations which are framed in joy and positive affirmations.
- Dog is everywhere
- Dog loves you
- Let Dog into your life
- Make the time in your crowded schedule to communicate with Dog
- Enjoy the opportunity to show your love for Dog on a daily basis, not just during certain ceremonies in April and December
- Proudly and triumphantly proclaim your devotion to Dog, to everyone, everywhere, even where Dog is not welcome. Ignore signs and signals which attempt to exclude the presence of Dog
- Defend Dog in your words and deeds, against those who choose to slander Dog, because Dog is righteous
- Include Dog in your holiday. Take Dog with you in the car, on the plane, in the hotel, at the campground…
- Lavish gifts upon Dog this year, just as you lavish gifts upon family and friends
- Love your Dog as the one true Dog, while acknowledging the right of other people to love other Dogs
- Dog is the reason for the season
- Practice humility when communicating with Dog and accept that Dog is wiser than you. Subjugate yourself to the will of Dog
- Teach your children to love Dog, because the love of Dog must start in the home.
- Include Dog in Carols by Candlelight, summer barbecues, Kris Kringle and Christmas parties – you can even find a way to involve Dog in one seminal act of Christmas, the traditional photo with Santa.
Finally, remember that Dog is for life, not just for Christmas.
