NO, not things that dogs have said!! That would just be silly. I mean quotes about dogs. Several of you have pm'ed me concerning my big boy. Stan b (Roadkill) included a quote from Kipling (one of my favorite writers). Here it is:
"The cost of a good gun dog is a broken heart."
Several years ago, I put together a bound photo book of King for my wife's 21st 39th birthday. I had plenty of photos beginning from the day we brought him home up to that time. I spent about two weeks reading through what various folks have said about dogs (there's tons of it). Here are a few I used:
“When the Man waked up he said, 'What is Wild Dog doing here? And the woman said, "His name is not Wild Dog any more, but First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always." Rudyard Kipling
"Once you have had a wonderful dog, life without one is a life diminished". Dean Koontz
"I'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn't like a person." Bill Murray
On a lighter note: "Anyone who doesn't know what soap tastes like has never bathed a dog". Franklin P. Jones. I used that one on a page where I had a photo of my wife hosing King down.
Any of you have a favorite you'd like to share?
Thanks to all who have given help and support. Gotta go throw the dummy for the big boy a couple of times.
