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

    Give me time to understand what you want of me.

  • 03


    Place your trust in me- it's crucial to my Well-being.

  • 04


    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.

  • 05


    Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when it's speaking to me.

  • 06


    Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it.

  • 07


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

  • 08


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

  • 09


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

    Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I 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.

    Whether it's a cold windy day or a heavy snowy day, you'll sleep by your side, even on cold soil.

  • 与えるべき食べるときが何ひとつなくても、手をさしのべればキスをしてくれて、世間の荒波にも前、傷ついた心や体を優しく舐めてくれるでしょう。

    Even if you don't have any time to eat, if you reach out, it will kiss you and gently lick your injured mind and body in the face of the rough seas of the world.

  • そして、あなたにすべての終わりがきて、死があなたを包みこみ、亡骸が冷たい土の下に葬られ、人々が墓の前を去った後もその墓のすぐ横には前足の前に頭を垂れた気高いあなたの愛犬がいます。

    And when you have all the end, death surrounds you, the corpse is buried under the cold soil, and even after people leave the tomb, the head is in front of the forefoot right next to the tomb. I have your noble dog that hangs down.

  • 愛犬の目は悲しみに曇りながらも、油断なく辺りを見渡し、死者となったあなたに対してでさえも、忠実さと真実に満ちあふれているのです。

    Your dog's eyes are cloudy with sadness, but he looks around alertly and is full of faithfulness and truth, even to you who have died.
