Ode to Dog

Our fascination with dogs stretches way back and we have both observed and cohabited with them for as long as records can recall. In honour of what they mean to us, what they give and what they do, men and women the globe over have immortalised their experiences in ink. Although there are many brilliant examples, below are just a few of those readily available on the internet.

My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet. ~ Edith Wharton
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. ~ Groucho Marx

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. ~ Milan Kundera
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much. ~ Mark Twain
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
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. ~ John Grogan
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Dogs are really people with short legs in fur coats. ~ Unknown
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies. ~ Gene Hill
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
When you feel dog tired at night, it may be because you’ve growled all day long.” ~ Unknown
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren’t certain we knew better. ~ George Bird Evans
