Not Carnegie, Vanderbilt and Astor together could have raised money enough to buy a quarter share in my little dog.

Ernest Thompson Seton


Amid the cheering of the crowds, he hardly heard his master's voice, but he saw the familiar head and shoulders, and the bright flag he was waving. He raced toward the seven-foot fence; without apparent effort he rose in the air and cleared the top with a good hand-breadth to spare; then dashed up to his master that he loved, and gamboled there and licked his hand in heart-full joy. Again the victor's crown was his, and the master, a man of dogs, caressed the head of shining black with the jewel eyes of gold.

Ernest Thompson Seton,
The Hero Dog of France


Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

The psychological and moral comfort of a presence at once humble and understanding—this is the greatest benefit that the dog has bestowed upon man.

Percy Bysshe Shelley


The sweetness of his disposition and endearing qualities are sufficiently attested by the fact that, to the last, when sometimes his sickness entailed additional and disagreeable duties in regard to him, not a servant would hear to his days being shortened, and when he died there were those of the household who felt that though but a dog he had qualities which would have adorned a Christian.

Charles W. Shimmain


Millie, the young Springer, is sitting beside me, head in my lap as I type, practicing the "spaniel gaze." At sixteen months she's already got it down. The spaniel heart is warm. The soft spaniel eye brims with love. If ever the world's diplomats and arms negotiators learn the spaniel gaze there will be peace on earth.

I don't feel like a dream girl, but I think it's really nice. I guess a part of me wishes I got that sort of attention in my real life. Because in my real life, I'm this weird, dorky girl who just hangs out with her dog.

Alicia Silverstone


I will not "let the dogs out."
I will not "let the dogs out."

I will not "let the dogs out."

I will return the seeing-eye dog.
I will return the seeing-eye dog.
I will return the seeing-eye dog.
I will return the seeing-eye dog.

[Written on the chalkboard by Bart, as part of his punishment.]

Bart Simpson


What's Santa's Little Helper doing to that dog? Looks like he's trying to jump over, but he can't quite make it.

Bart Simpson


Burns: I suggest you leave immediately.

Homer: Or what? You'll release the dogs or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you?

Homer Simpson


Homer: Well crying isn't going to help. Now, you can sit there feeling sorry for yourself or you can eat can after can of dog food until your tears smell enough like dog food until your dog comes back, or you can go out there and find your dog.

Bart: You're right. [Gets up and leaves]

Homer: Rats. I almost had him eating dog food.

Homer Simpson


You mean you gave away both your dogs? You know how I feel about giving.

Homer Simpson


Why not be oneself? That is the whole secret of a successful appearance. If one is a greyhound, why try to look like a Pekingese?

Adam Smith


Like many other much-loved humans, they believed that they owned their dogs, instead of realizing that their dogs owned them.

Dodie Smith,
101 Dalmatians


Many dogs can understand almost every word humans say, while humans seldom learn to recognize more than half a dozen barks, if that. And barks are only a small part of the dog language. A wagging tail can mean so many things. Humans know that it means a dog is pleased, but not what a dog is saying about his pleasedness. (Really, it is very clever of humans to understand a wagging tail at all, as they have no tails of their own.)

Dodie Smith,
101 Dalmatians


Though he had very little Latin beyond "Cave canem," he had, as a young dog, devoured Shakespeare (in a tasty leather binding).

Dodie Smith,
101 Dalmatians


I love animals to the extent that my home is my dog's home! Which means that nothing is too good for my Freckles—chairs, couches, beds. But I do draw the line on chipmunks nibbling at my table linens, bedding, blankets, etc.

Kate Smith
