A few years ago I started collecting dog related quotes that I liked. Here are some of those quotes, along with some of my favorite dog photos I have saved overtime...(and do not own the rights to :)
"Only my dogs will not betray me."
"His ears were often the first thing to catch my tears."
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning, referring to her cocker spaniel, Flush
"… none are as fiercely loyal as dog people.
In return, no doubt, for the never-ending loyalty of dogs."
"If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around."
"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."
"We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment"
"We never really own a dog as much as he owns us."
"Old age means realizing you will never own all the dogs you wanted to."
"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
"A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life"
"Old men miss many dogs."
"Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault, really."
~Agnes Sligh Turnbull
For the soul of every living thing is in the hand of God.
