For You To Enjoy

Below are ten Roger Caras dog quotes. Caras was president emeritus of the ASPCA. He was the author of dozens of books about pets and other animals, including A Celebration of Dogs.

A dog's nose is something for us to wonder at. It is perfectly remarkable and reminds us that there is a world out there that we can never know. At least not as human beings.


Being patted is what it is all about.


Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.


For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog.


I am as confounded by dogs as I am indebted to them.

A Celebration of Dogs


If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life.

A Celebration of Dogs


It looks like a miniature hippopotamus with badly fitting pantyhose all over.

[On the Chinese Shar-pei]


Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks.

A Celebration of Dogs


Try throwing a ball just once for a dog. It would be like eating only one peanut or potato chip. Try to ignore the importuning of a Golden Retriever who has brought you his tennis ball, the greatest treasure he possesses.


We derive immeasurable good, uncounted pleasures, enormous security, and many critical lessons about life by owning dogs.

Roger Caras,
