Happiness is a warm puppy.
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.
Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
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.
A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.
Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.
A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.
Dogs never bite me. Just humans.
