DOG: A domesticated carnivorous mammal that typically has a long snout, an acute sense of smell, and a barking, howling, or whining voice. It is widely kept as a pet or for work or field sports. Canis familiaris, family Canidae (the dog family); probably domesticated from the wolf in the Mesolithic period. The dog family also includes the wolves, coyotes, jackals, and foxes.

Dogs are our link to paradise.
They don't know evil
or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside
on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing
was not boring--it was peace.
― Milan Kundera

A good dog deserves a good bone. - Proverb

My philosophy when it came to pets was much like that of having children:
You got what you got, and you loved them unconditionally
regardless of whatever their personalities or flaws turned out to be.
― Gwen Cooper

Perhaps the greatest gift an animal has to offer is a permanent reminder of who we really are.
― Nick Trout

“Did I ever tell you my pet peeve?'
No,' I said.
People who dress up their pets
to look like Little Lord Fauntleroys or cowboys, clowns, ballerinas.
As if it's not enough just to be a dog or cat or turtle.”
― Jerry Spinelli

Dogs are us, only innocent. - Cynthia Heimel

Anatomy of a Dog

A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness.
- George Graham Vest

We pass each other
on the street
you barely say hello
our dogs are friends
they sniff and jump
and put on quite a show.

The timing
was it poor for you?
but that’s no real excuse
if dogs
show cordiality
then why should you recuse?

We leash our pets
for trouble-free
while outside
perhaps the muzzle should be on
some humans, not a Tige.

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

A little Dog that wags his tail
And knows no other joy
Of such a little Dog am I
Reminded by a Boy

Who gambols all the living Day
Without an earthly cause
Because he is a little Boy
I honestly suppose —

The Cat that in the Corner dwells
Her martial Day forgot
The Mouse but a Tradition now
Of her desireless Lot

Another class remind me
Who neither please nor play
But not to make a “bit of noise”
Beseech each little Boy —

Emily Dickinson

Pet Holiday Safety

FOOVIE (fo’ view) n.
The ability of a dog to inflict guilt from any angle in the room while he watches his master eat. - Rich Hall


The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side.

He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer.

He will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world.

He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince.

When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings, and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.

- George Graham Vest

Such short little lives
our pets have to spend with us,
and they spend most of it waiting
for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter
they bring into our lives and even how much closer
we become with each other because of them.
― John Grogan

For Bucky

If you make a fool of yourself in front of a cat,
he will sneer at you, if you are sober;
he will leave the room if you are drunk.
If you make a fool of yourself in front a dog,
he will make a fool of himself, too.
― Chuck Jones



From time to time, people tell me “lighten up, it’s just a dog.” Or “that’s a lot of money for just a dog.”
They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent or the cost involved for “just a dog.”
Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog.”
Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a dog” but, I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a dog,” and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “just a dog” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you too, think it’s “just a dog”, then you will probably understand phrases like “just a friend” “just a sunrise, or “just a promise”
“Just a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure unbridled joy.
“Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of “just a dog” I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a dog” but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
“Just a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a dog” but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a man.”
So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,” just smile.
Because they “just don’t understand”.
