Dogs understand your moods and your thoughts, and if you are thinking unpleasant things about your dog, he will pick it up and be downhearted.


I say with all my heart that unless the owner of such a dog particularly requires it for show purposes, it should be neutered to make its life happy and that of its owners equally trouble free.


I've caught more ills from people sneezing over me and giving me virus infections than from kissing dogs.


The dog has an enviable mind; it remembers the nice things in life and quickly blots out the nasty.
