Default Favorite dog quotes.

My most favorite:

“The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.”
-George Graham Vest


" He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

-Unknown

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

- Mark Twain



"Man is a dog's idea of what God should be."

- Holbrook Jackson



"The average dog is a nicer person than the average person."

- Andrew A. Rooney



"To his dog, every man is King;
hence the constant popularity of dogs."

- Aldous Huxley



"If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons."

- James Thurber



"Reverence: the spiritual attitude of a man to a god
and a dog to a man."

- Ambrose Bierce



"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend:
and inside a dog, it's too dark to read."

- Groucho Marx



"A dog is not "almost human," and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such."

- John Holmes



"If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience."

- Woodrow Wilson



"The disposition of noble dogs is to be gentle with people they know and the opposite with those they don't know...How, then, can the dog be anything other than a lover of learning since it defines what's its own and what's alien."

- Plato



"The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make
a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you,
but he will make a fool of himself too."

- Samuel Butler



"If you take a dog which is starving and feed him and make him prosperous, that dog will not bite you. This is the primary difference between a dog and a man."

- Mark Twain



"Liberals are like dogs:

The liberal holds that he is true to the republic when he is true to himself. (It may not be as cozy an attitude as it sounds.) He greets with enthusiasm the fact of the journey, as a dog greets a man’s invitation to take a walk. And he acts in the dog’s way too, swinging wide, racing ahead, doubling back, covering many miles of territory that the man never traverses, all in the spirit of inquiry and the zest for truth. He leaves a crazy trail, but he ranges far beyond the genteel old party he walks with and he is usually in a better position to discover a skunk."

- E. B. White



"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."

- Sigmund Freud



"No man can be condemed for owning a dog.
As long as he has a dog, he has a friend;
and the poorer he gets, the better friend he has."

- Will Rogers



"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."

- Sir Walter Scott



"The dog is man's best friend.
He has a tail on one end.
Up in front he has teeth.
And four legs underneath."

- Ogden Nash - An Introduction to Dogs



"If you can't decide between a Shepherd, a Setter or a Poodle,
get them all ... adopt a mutt!"

- ASPCA



"To err is human:To forgive, canine."

- Anonymous



"I talk to him when I'm lonesome like,
and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught thereat,
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
but never a friend like that!"

- W. Dayton Wedgefarth



"In the world which we know, among the different and primitive geniuses that preside over the evolution of the several species, there exists not one, excepting that of the dog, that ever gave a thought to the presence of man."

- Maurice Maeterlinck - 'Our Friend, The Dog'

My only complaint about my dog is that he is more virtuous than I am. However, that’s not his fault, and I am the only one who can do anything about it.

- Wendell Phillips
