Dogs Bring Joy to the World

She never sat down in a car but stood, braced tense, facing the wind. Now and again, she would turn her face toward me with an apologetic expression, as though to say: "I have not forgotten that you are here but there are certain pleasures I cannot share with you." Her nose never ceased its sensitive quivering. 
 ---- Mazo de la Roche

Our house was always filled with dogs... They made our house a kennel, it is true, but the constant patter of their filthy paws and the dreadful results of their brainless activities have warmed me throughout the years.
---- Helen Hayes

You can say any fool thing to a dog, and the dog will turn his head and give you this look that says, "My God, you're right! I never would've thought of that!"

---- Dave Barry
