How about some "dog quotes"? I find that reading good things can help good things happen. I can give a million from Gene Hill to Nash Buckingham, but just came across this one from the liner notes from Hillman's DVD and think it's just great. Please share yours.
"Make the puppy know that you think that he is the most spectacular little puppy that there ever was. That will carry him through all of his life.
That will give him courage.
He will believe in you.
He will trust you and he will be your teamate, if you are fair with him and respect him"
