    Default Nice quote I hadn't seen before

    A friend of mine posted this on facebook. I hadn't seen it before and thought it was worth sharing.

    "It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." - Anonymous

    This is the actual quote. I liked it so much it is on our "past champions" page.

    "I could tell you the story of my life through the dogs I have loved. I could tell you the story of the losses in my life through their deaths. Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty. They depart to teach us about loss. We try to replace them, but never quite succeed. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big."

    Erica Jong, from an essay entitled "A Woman's Best Friend"

    Very nice and very true - many times i get caught up on how their training is going and how much more they need to learn and if they pass at a hunt test or if they were quiet in the blind while hunting and you forget how much they give you. There is a sig. line of someones on here and it always brings back to me that they are much more than a tool, they are a friend that will never ditch you or will purposely upset you, they are MANS BEST FRIEND.

    The quote I really like goes something like this.

    Dogs give us 100% of there focus and loyalty and man gives them his spare time and a little attention when he feels he has the opportunity. That is the best deal man ever made.
