I’m not sure exactly when I started, but one day I started a list of my favorite quotations about dogs. The list is an ongoing project, but since I enjoy these quotations so much I thought it would be fun to share them. I’m always looking for new additions, so if you have a favorite quotation about dogs or pets please share it in the comments!
Joyful, joyful, joyful, as only dogs know how to be happy with only the autonomy of their shameless spirit. – Pablo Neruda
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. – John Steinbeck
What do dogs do on their day off? Can’t lie around – that’s their job! – George Carlin
If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them. – Phil Pastoret
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. – Robert A. Heinlein
Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in. – Mark Twain
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 friendship of a dog is precious. It becomes even more so when one is so far removed from home…. I have a Scottie. In him I find consolation and diversion… he is the “one person” to whom I can talk without the conversation coming back to war. – Dwight D. Eisenhower
The factory of the future will have two employees: a man and a dog. The man’s job will be to feed the dog. The dog’s job will be to prevent the man from touching any of the automated equipment. – Warren G. Bennis
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn’t merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. -Edward Hoagland
I collect quotes, many of these I have heard of but with the accompanying photos that you have, you made them even MORE perfect!
I like the one about training the human to become part dog…I have been fairly successful at that as she can spot wabbits and squirrels before I do now and sometimes she even chases them out of the yard…she says to get me to be quiet but I think she likes the thrill of the chase! There are so many great quotes out there, mom and I just love finding them!
I love your list and the photos!
I have my own running list of dog quotes and I’ve been trying to post them on my blog calling it Random Quote Saturday.
I don’t have a list, but maybe we should. I did love the pictures paired with the quotes…perfect!!
Seeing you together makes me smile! (I am now wondering about cat quotes… probably not many, I’m guessing : )
Oh, I love those quotes! And that last picture of you and Eko is so cute 🙂
Mom has always loved another one from Charles Schultz, “A boy without a dog is like a day without sunshine.”
Love these. Particularly love the one about the factory LOL!
Love your photos:-)
The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.
This is on my dog Dottie’s plaque out in the garden. Love you & miss you Dottie.
Awesome collection of quotations and photos, Will! Love the one of you guys wearing hats and shades. 😉
