Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car,in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.
Jerome K. Jerome
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.
I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren't certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.
George Bird Evans
If you are a dog lover, you never own a dog, they own you.
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
No matter how little money and how few possesions you own, having a dog makes you rich.
A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
A dog isn't just a man's best friend; it is a friend to women, children, elderly or to any person who has a heart.
The dog has an enviable mind; it remembers the nice things in life and quickly blots out the nasty.
Barbara Woodhouse, No Bad Dogs
