You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.
Dogs are miracles with paws.
Histories are more full of the examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.
I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
I love dogs. They live in the moment and don't care about anything except affection and food. They're loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated.
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Cinema is an old whore, like circus and variety, who knows how to give many kinds of pleasure. Besides, you can't teach old fleas new dogs.
My children are all doing just fine. The mountain dogs are great in this weather. The yorkies are freezing.†
There are two kinds of fidelity - that of dogs and that of cats; and you gentlemen, have the fidelity of cats who never leave the house.
I'm an introvert... I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.
Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.
Asking a writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp post how it feels about dogs
Artists like cats; soldiers like dogs.
I was honestly very nervous of Constance Wheatcroft. And I wasn't the only one. Her entire family was afraid of her. Dogs were afraid of her. Bindweed in the hedge would wither as she passed; birds would forget their nesting instincts and fly back to north Africa at the sound of her hideous cries.
Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say "what should be the reward of such sacrifices?" Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
They never forgot
That even the most dreadful martyrdom must run its course
Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot
Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer's horse
Scratches its innocent behind on a tree.
If we don't act, this country is going to go to the dogs and no investor will want to come here.
I wouldn't be surprised if in our lifetime dogs and firehoses are released or opened on us. I wouldn't be surprised if a few of us get a billy club to the head. I wouldn't be surprised if, you know, some of us go to jail just like Martin Luther King did on trumped up charges. Tough times are coming.
I don't rekoleckt now ov ever hearing ov two dogs fiteing unless thare waz a man or two around.
Thare are people who dont do ennything but watch their simptoms. I have seen dogs ackt just az sensible, i hav seen a rat terrier watch the simptoms ov a knot hole, in a board fence, all day, for sum rat tew cum out, but no rat didn't cum out.
One has never known a good man to whom dogs were not dear; but many of the best women have no such fondness. You will find that the woman who is really kind to dogs is always one who has failed to inspire sympathy in men. For the attractive woman, dogs are mere dumb and restless brutes possibly dangerous, certainly soulless. Yet will coquetry teach her to caress any dog in the presence of a man enslaved by her.
A dog will make eye contact. A cat will, too, but a cats eyes dont even look entirely warm-blooded to me, whereas a dogs eyes look human except less guarded. A dog will look at you as if to say, What do you want me to do for you? Ill do anything for you. Whether a dog can in fact, do anything for you if you dont have sheep (I never have) is another matter. The dog is willing.
