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

Mark Twain

“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”

Orhan Pumuk

“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? What would this world be like without dogs?” 

Mary Oliver

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

Konrad Lorenz

"Before you get a dog, you can't quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can't imagine living any other way."

Caroline Knapp

"If my dog makes you uncomfortable, I'd be happy to lock you up in the other room."

"If I could be half the person my dog is, I’d be twice the human I am." 


Charles Yu

“Everything I know, I learned from dogs.”

Nora Roberts
