Terry Thistlewaite

Dogs who chase cars evidently see them as large, unruly ungulates badly in need of discipline and shepherding.

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

A dog, I will maintain, is a very tolerable judge of beauty, as appears from the fact that any liberally educated dog does, in a general way, prefer a woman to a man.

Frances Thompson

Helen Thomson

Inside every Newfoundland, Boxer, Elkhound and Great Dane is a puppy longing to climb on to your lap.

Helen Thomson

It often happens that a man is more humanly related to a cat or a dog than to any human being.

Henry David Thoreau

When a dog runs at you, whistle for him.

The dog, on the other hand, has few or no ideas because his brain acts in coarse fashion and because there are few connections with each single process.

We are two travelers, Roger and I. Roger's my dog—come here, you scamp! Jump for the gentleman—mind your eye! Over the table,—look out for the lamp! The rogue is growing a little old; Five years we've tramped through wind and weather, And slept out-doors when nights were cold, And ate and drank and starved together.

John T. Trowbridge, The Vagabonds

Anne Tyler

I've always thought a hotel ought to offer optional small animals. I mean a cat to sleep on your bed at night, or a dog of some kind to act pleased when you come in. You ever notice how a hotel room feels so lifeless?

Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist

I guess what I like most about NY is that it feels like home to me. I was born here in 1977 and have lived here, on and off, my whole life.

I feel very connected to NY. I love how much it has to offer, though it still feels small and cozy. There are so many amazing things to see here: incredible art, just about every film, amazing music, all kinds of interesting people. I like to ride my bike on the Hudson River.

I like that I can walk my dog around two blocks and he meets about 20 other dogs to play with. I like that I can get a turkey sandwich at 4 in the morning if I want to. A beautiful night out in NYC can be any night because anything can happen. It is spontaneous and surprises you all the time.

Liv Tyler

The stone tells that it covers the white Maltese dog. They called him Bull while he still lived, but now the silent paths of night possess his voice.

William Tymmes,
Epitaph for a Dog
