A dog wags its tail with its heart.
I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never
say naught there at.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never
a friend like that.
W. Dayton Wedgefarth
From a dog's point of view his master is an elongated and
abnormally cunning dog.
Mabel L. Robinson
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours,
faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe
it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the
fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Every dog has his day.
Miguel de Cervantes
He possessed beauty without vanity, strength without insolence;
courage without ferocity; and all the virtues of man without
His epitaph for his dog.
Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of
ther 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.
You're only a dog, old fellow; a dog, and you've had your
But never a friend of all my friends has been truer than you
Julian Stearns Cutler
When a dog bites a man that is not news, but when a man bites
a dog that is news.
Charles Anderson Dana
The dog is a yes-animal. Very popular with people who can't
afford a yes man.
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving
Charles De Gaulle
They are better than human beings, because they know but do
I am called a dog because I fawn on those who give me anything,
I yelp at those who refuse, and I set my teeth in rascals.
Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs
treat us as equals.
The dog is mentioned in the Bible eighteen times - the cat
not even once.
W. E. Farbstein
The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this
selfish world - the one that never deserts him, the one that
never proves ungrateful or teacherous - is his dog. A man's
dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health
and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the
wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he
can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that
has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that
come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards
the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When
all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings
and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love
as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune
drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless
and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than
that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight
against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes,
and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is
laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends
pursue their way, there by his grave side will the noble dog
be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open
in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.
George Graham Vest
Let dogs delight to bark and bite, For God hath made them
One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling
blue is that he doesn't try to find out why.
The dog has seldom been successful in pulling man up to its
level of sagacity, but man has frequently dragged the dog
down to his.
America is a large friendly dog in a small room. Every time
it wags its tail it knocks over a chair.
Arnold Joseph Toynbee
Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike
people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to
mix love and hate in their object-relations.
The dog, to gain some private ends,
Went mad and bit the man.
The man recovered of the bite,
The dog it was that died.
He has every attribute of a dog except loyalty.
Thomas P. Gore
My goal in life is to become as wonderful as my dog thinks
Toby and Eileen Green
You call to a dog and a dog will break its neck to get to
you. Dogs just want to please. Call to a cat and its attitude
is, "What's in it for me?"
Man is a dog's idea of what God should be.
He's fair. He treats us all the same - like dogs.
On his football coach, Vince Lombardi,
affectionately recalled on Lombardi's death.
All knowledge, the totality of all questions and all answers
is contained in the dog.
The more I see of dogs the less I think of men.
