|A Pet’s New Year’s Resolutions||A Pet Owner’s New Year’s Resolutions|
|I will be fed on demand. Ad lib. Freely available. At all times. NOW||I will stick to a healthy diet. I will lose weight. My pet will lose weight too.|
|I will wake up early each morning and join in the dawn chorus.||I will walk every day. I will decide when to walk, not my dog.|
|The neighbours shall not upset me.||The neighbours shall not upset me.|
|I will be friends with all furry family members. I will not bully <<insert other species>>.||I will set aside time for friendships. My pets do not need my every waking moment devoted to them.|
|No new family members please (see above).||Time for another furry family member.|
