I have a Lab, it's fun to hang out and hike with the dog, people come up to him, and pet him, it's fun.
Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails. What puts man in a higher state of evolution is that he has got his laugh on the right end.
Enjoyment of Laughter
I have a dog and sometimes I'll be the littlest kid with my dog and marvel at his ears and his nose and how he looks at me. If he died, I'd bawl like a baby.
Many of us have to spell words such as "out," "cookie," and "bath" when conversing with other people, lest we unnecessarily excite our pets. And even then they often understand. I've actually had clients who resorted to using a second language around their dogs, but after a while their perceptive pooches caught on. Who says dogs don't understand us?
You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation.
Marian Wright Edelman
Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
The friendship of a dog is precious. It becomes even more so when one is so far removed from home.... I have a Scottie. In him I find consolation and diversion... he is the "one person" to whom I can talk without the conversation coming back to war.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight—it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Agreeable friends—they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
Shall we, because we walk on our hind feet, assume to ourselves only the privilege of imperishability?
We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.
There is one other reason for dressing well, namely that dogs respect it, and will not attack you in good clothes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You enter into a certain amount of madness when you marry a person with pets.
She's an amazing dog and really inspired everything that's in this book.
Stevie Wonder always smells so good... I'm like a DEA dog, I can smell people a block away!
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,
Troubles with Bird Dogs
Until you have bred dogs and have drawn and painted them, it is difficult to realize that no two are identical in conformation. You need do no more than gun for a day over two of them to recognize that each is an individual. It requires the intimacy of daily living with a dog to know the subtle quality of his mind, the ham-smell of his ears, and that his wet nose in your mouth tastes salty.
George Bird Evans
When dogs leap onto your bed, it's because they adore being with you. When cats leap onto your bed, it's because they adore your bed.
The average dog has one request to all humankind. Love me.
