Happy New Year! May the odds be ever in your favor!
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.
Petting, scratching and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.
You think those dogs will not be in heaven! I tell you they will be there long before any of us.
The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven not men.
Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring-it was peace.
