A mix of old and new thoughts.
"On the whole I would not wish to live a dog's life, except for the times when you show up to help and are told to go lie down."
"Life is mostly a good reason to go for a walk with your dog."
"An old dog, even more than an old spouse, always feels like doing what you feel like doing."
"If animals could talk, the world would lose its best listeners."
Sometimes my dog looks at me as if to say, "Did you know that petting an animal is a wonderful way to relieve stress?"
"Ever wonder where you'd end up if you took your dog for a walk and never once pulled back on the leash?
I almost can't bear the look in a dog's eyes that says, "I would gladly be your soulmate, if I only had a soul."
"It is now believed that the need to have ten cats is a sublimated desire to have twenty cats."
If animals don't talk, how do they say to themselves, "I guess I'll go take a nap."
"After a scolding, a cat goes about its business. A dog slinks off into a corner and pretends to be doing a serious self-reappraisal."
"If you could combine a cat and a dog, you'd have man's best accomplice."
"There is no better actor than a dog pretending to be as sad and lonely as you are."
"My dog and I have enjoyed many a silence together, a conversation always resumed exactly where left off."
"If you don't feel a bond with the animals who share with us this moment in eternity, you don't comprehend eternity."
"Man is the highest-rated animal, at least among the animals who returned the questionnaire."
"You wonder who would be the highest-rated animal if it were determined by a show of paws."
