Why Dogs Make The Best Friends
By: Donna Worthy


 So often I hear people say “I’m a dog person” or “ I’m a cat person” or “ I just don’t like animals”. I don’t get that last one but to each his own I suppose. I personally am a dog person. I have grown up with them and I have always had one (or more) in my life. As a matter of fact, the first thing I got when I left my first husband (who was not an animal person at all) was a little Shih Tzu. She was the first of my now four dogs! I get a few strange looks when I take them all for walks. One is a Pit Bull, who is very scary looking but wouldn’t harm a fly, the other is a Rottweiler who is very small for her breed but still can be a bit scary when looking at her(looks can be deceiving) . Then there are the two little ones who have more heart that they do size. As I mentioned I have my Shih Tzu who is now almost nine years old and only has her top teeth left. Her sidekick is my Chihuahua, Halo. Now you see why I get funny looks when I walk them. I always tell people that it’s the little ones they should be afraid of. The big ones only want attention and love! All of that being said, I thought I would post some of my favorite quotes about dogs. They are amazingly loving creatures who love unconditionally and even though they don’t always smell the best or have the proper manors (ex: sniffing butts and licking themselves) they are still the best “shoulders” to lean on when times are tough!




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


My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet. ~Edith Wharton


Man is a dog's idea of what God should be. ~Holbrook Jackson

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown


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


Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend. ~Corey Ford


If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. ~Phil Pastoret


The dog is a yes-animal, very popular with people who can't afford to keep a yes-man. ~Robertson Davies


Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails. ~Max Eastman, Enjoyment of Laughter


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

Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you? But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window. ~Steve Bluestone
