Money will buy a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail.
When a man's best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem.
When a man wantonly destroys one of the works of man we call him a vandal. When he destroys one of the works of god we call him a sportsman.
--Joseph Wood Krutch
I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.
There are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog
that you can get from no other source.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.
A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won't be too bad.
A dog is a dog except when he is facing you. Then he is Mr. Dog.
