Bark: This is a sound made by dogs when excited. Dogs bark at milkmen, postmen, yourself, visitors to the house and other dogs; some of them bark at nothing. For some reason dogs tend not to bark at burglars, bailiffs and income tax collectors, at whom they wag their tails in the most friendly manner.
I may have grown cynical from long service, but this is a tendency I do not like, and I sometimes think I'd rather be a dog and bay at the moon than stay in the Senate another six years and listen to it.

Morton Wilson, dog trainer

My name is Oprah Winfrey. I have a talk show. I'm single. I have eight dogs—five golden retrievers, two black labs, and a mongrel. I have four years of college.
Oprah Winfrey, when asked to describe herself during jury selection
This past Thanksgiving, my father was at the farm, and I had all 11 dogs in the house with a father who never allowed dogs in the house.

I call the Crown Plaza Hotel and I say, you know, "I need a room. Do you have one?" and they say, "We don't have any rooms." I say, Well OK—I used the Oprah Winfrey thing. Now is the time to pull out the name. It's 2:30 in the morning.
So I go in and I have my little doggies and the woman says to me, "I'm sorry, we don't take any dogs." By now it's 2:47. I'm in my pajamas with the dogs and I don't have a place to stay in Atlanta. So I say, "Well, do these look like dogs to you or do these look like little people with fur?" And she said they looked like dogs to her.
So we were escorted out of the Crown Plaza Hotel.

Even his sleep was full of dreams. He dreamt as he had not dreamt since the old days at Three Mill Cross—of hares starting from the long grass; of pheasants rocketing up with long tails streaming, of partridge rising with a whirr from the stubble. He dreamt that he was hunting, that he was chasing some spotted spaniel, who fled, who escaped him.... Then he opened his eyes. There were no hares, and no partridges; no whips cracking.... There was only Mr. Browning in the armchair talking to Miss Barrett on the sofa.
