Dog Quotes

IF DOGS WERE TEACHERS
If dogs were our teachers, we would learn important
stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
like they’ve been gone for a year.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride
in the car.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your
face to be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wiggle your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt
thing and pout… run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by
and nuzzle them gently.

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

Many dogs will give a greeting grin much like a human smile. — Richard A. Wolters

If a man lived up to the reputation of a dog, he would be a saint. — Zanzibarian Proverb

The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog… He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world… When all other friends desert, he remains. — George G. Vest
