dog Philosophy


Recommended Posts

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of

his tongue.



Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are


Ann Landers


If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.

Josh Billings



The average dog is a nicer person than the average person

Andy Rooney


We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare.

And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.


M. Acklam


Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people,

who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance,

and to turn around three times before lying down.

If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known


will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can.

>>That's almost $21.00 in dog money.



Ever consider what our dogs must think of us?

I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul,

chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth.


Anne Tyler


If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you.


that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

Mark Twain


You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look

that says,

'Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'

Dave Barry


Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

Roger Caras


If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket.

and then give him only two of them.

I really like the one that says, we give what we can spare, they give their all. But I also like the one about if dogs don't go to heaven I wanna go where they go. And the one about them loving you more than they love themselves is great. And.........oh dang, who am I kidding, I love them all! Thanks Lance!

Being a lit hound, I love this one by Sir Walter Scott (1825):


Recollect that the Almighty, who gave the dog to be companion of our pleasures and our toils, hath invested him with a nature noble and incapable of deceit.

I agree with Dixie Girl! they are all good. Reading these, I think of another saying, that I almost totally apply to my critters, especially when dealing with the pain of losing one:

Tis better to have loved and lost...than never to have loved at all!

I rerun that in my head ALL the time, specially when I have a very sick pupper! :rolleyes:

It's like having 2 little voices on your shoulders, one saying "never again, it hurts too much to see them sick, or when they cross the rainbow bridge" pain beyond belief, then the other voice is totally cracking up laughing... knowing and saying.. yea right... you know you'll do it again, and again and............................I Do and I Will :D

If I remember my Sir Walter Scott correctly, in "Lady of the Lake", he wrote about Lufra, a dog belonging to the hero, Douglas. After calling her "the swiftest hound in all the north," he continues,


"Lufra, mighty Lufra!

Who, from Douglas's side

N'er threat nor bribe

Could 'er divide!"


My apologies for any misquote.
