Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass?      -Mary Oliver

Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.   -Mark Twain

Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.  – Caroline Knapp

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures. They give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.  – Gilda Radner

Toby was tied to a lamp post and left in the middle of a snow storm. He was rescued by extraordinary New Yorkers. 

The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.       -Konrad Lorenz
