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.


The eyes of a dog, the expression of a dog, the warmly wagging tail of a dog and the gloriously cold damp nose of a dog were in my opinion all God-given for one purpose only—to make complete fools of us human beings.


The phobias I meet are very often connected with the show ring. Dogs that won't be handled by judges, men or women, and who all would be champions, according to their owners, if only they would stand still for examination—not bite the judge, or stay put on a table, or keep their tails up while being looked at, or sit in the ring.
