This is not surprising, since neither scientists nor philosophers can agree about what the consciousness of humans consists of, let alone that of animals.” – John Bradshaw (author, Dog Sense)

“Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.” – Agatha Cristie (author)

)

He somersaulted happily around the floor, making faces like a rubber gargoyle in a washing machine.” – Terry Pratchett (author, Making Money)

“The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that you will not come back when you go out the door without them.” – Stanley Coren (psychologist and author, The Intelligence of Dogs)

“But humans drive the cars and decide when dogs eat and where dogs live and clearly this was something else in their power – they could find their dogs when they needed them.” – W. Bruce Cameron (author, A Dog’s Journey)

“Love – that which biologists, nervous about being misunderstood, call ‘attachment ‘- fuels the bond between dog and master or mistress.” – John Bradshaw (author, Dog Sense)

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.” – Gilda Radner (comedian)

“I asked this heroic pet lover how it felt to have died for a Schnauzer named Teddy. Salvador Biagiani was philosophical. He said it sure beat dying for absolutely nothing in the Vietnam War.” – Kurt Vonnegut (author, God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian )

20 Quotes That Prove Dogs Are Truly (Wo)Man’s Best Friend

Life is better with a dog.

I admit it. I’m a crazy dog mom. Is anyone not totally obsessed with their dog?

My dream is to one day own a large piece of land somewhere in the country so I can have like 50 dogs (big AND small — I don’t discriminate). Maybe a couple of other animals too, like horses and pigs … but mostly dogs. My dog is my baby and I love her, but sometimes dogs can be a real pain in the butt.

Metro

A couple weeks ago my mom and I were taking her for a walk at night in my neighborhood. She’s not the kind of dog that will run away when off leash because she is either incredibly loyal or just knows how good she has it. I still haven’t figured out which and I’ve had her for 11 years.

That night though, as we were passing the house of her best friend, she decided she would run into my neighbor’s backyard to go look for him. How romantic right? NO. So there we were at 11:00 at night, screaming her name, running up and down the street trying to find her. At that moment I knew how my mom felt that one time I hid from her in the grocery store. (Sorry mom!)

The worst or best part of the story is that after almost 2 hours of searching for her, we returned home to find her sitting on the front porch like she had been waiting there for us all along.

Despite what she put me through, I still love her because dogs are the only creatures on earth that never judge you and always love you unconditionally. Dogs just … GET … people.

They’re our best friends, family member, and loyal companion all rolled into one. There’s nothing and no one quite like them.

                                          Political dog quotes

                                          Politicians sometimes get a reputation for being long-winded, but when it comes to describing their connection to their pooches, they don’t mince words.

                                          These short dog quotes say it all in as few words as possible!

                                          “I see dog stories as an antidote to the dire news that nothing is ever going to get better.” Bruce Cameron

                                          Cute dog quotes

                                          Some of the experiences we have with dogs are very serious indeed, such as the human-and-canine partnerships in service, military and police work, farming and hunting and other critical life pursuits.

                                          But life with a dog is also full of simple pleasures like cuteness, snoring and companionship, which these sentimental dog quotes so aptly describe.

                                          “I really love the sound of my dog snoring.” Chris Evans

                                          “I love road trips! My husband and I love that. We bought a truck with a bench seat so we could put the dog in the middle.” Barbra Streisand

                                          “Life is a series of dogs.” George Carlin

                                          Spiritual dog quotes

                                          If you have ever had the suspicion that your pet dog is so much more than “just” a dog, you will resonate with these dog lovers, who try to sum up in their “my dog quotes” just how much their canine has meant to them.

                                          “I took solace in my relationship with God, who, along with my dog, was my best friend growing up.” Lisa Bonet

                                          “I don’t really understand that process called reincarnation, but if there is such a thing I’d like to come back as my daughter’s dog.” Leonard Cohen

                                          “My dog doesn’t worry about the meaning of life. She may worry if she doesn’t get her breakfast, but she doesn’t sit around worrying about whether she will get fulfilled or liberated or enlightened. As long as she gets some food and a little affection, her life is fine.” Charlotte Joko Beck

                                          Dog best friend quotes

                                          Do you ever notice how there aren’t any popular stories about people and dogs that don’t describe the purest kind of friendship? Sometimes it seems we were literally made for each other, as these dog friendship quotes describe!

                                          “The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.” Charles de Gaulle.

                                          “If I could be half the person my dog is, I’d be twice the human I am.” Charles Yu

                                          “Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.” Corey Ford

                                          Dog quotes love and loyalty

                                          Ahhh….the loyalty and love of a dog. Thank goodness for it! Clearly, as these pet quotes dog
                                          loyalty quotes express, this is something people around the world feel truly grateful for!

                                          “It’s just the most amazing thing to love a dog, isn’t it? It makes our relationships with people seem as boring as a bowl of oatmeal.” John Grogan

                                          “Dogs never lie about love.” Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

                                          “You see, sometimes in life, the best thing for all that ails you has fur and four legs.” Mark J. Asher

                                          Inspirational dog quotes

                                          How do dogs inspire you? Could you even count the ways?

                                          As these dog quotes inspirational express, sometimes the most accurate answer to that question is “In all ways, everywhere, in everything!”

                                          “Everything I know, I learned from dogs.” Nora Roberts

                                          “The best therapist has fur and four legs.” Unknown

                                          “This morning I lay in the bathtub thinking how wonderful it would be if I had a dog like Rin Tin Tin. I’d call him Rin Tin Tin too, and I’d take him to school with me, where he could stay in the janitor’s room or by the bicycle racks when the weather was good.” Anne Frank

                                          Saying goodbye quotes

                                          There are two near-universal life experiences most of us share: loving a dog, and grieving when that dog passes. These dog death quotes remind us that when we love, that love lasts beyond the physical and becomes eternal.

                                          “If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.” Will Rogers

                                          “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anatole France.

                                          “For those who love dogs, it would be the worst form of a lie to call any place where dogs were banned ‘Paradise.’ Certainly no loving God would separate people from their canine friends for eternity.” Stanley Coren

                                          Grief dog quotes

                                          It takes a strong person to give and receive fully. Perhaps it takes an even stronger person to grieve openly and fully.

                                          Dogs ask all of this of us and more, and it is only love that makes us strong enough to rise to the challenge!

                                          “When my dog Buster died, I couldn’t get over it. I was in bits.” Paul O’Grady

                                          “I think, more than anything else, my dog’s death has made me grow up. I find myself thinking about the world in a more serious way.” Zendaya

                                          “Nature is very cruel. It is much riskier to love any living being than not. I’m painfully aware that even my little dog is a walking bundle of mortality. I’m painfully aware he’s going to pass.” Mark Rylance

                                          Rescue dog quotes

                                          As these rescue dog quotes highlight, rescuing a pup in need can be a life-changing and life-affirming experience!

                                          “A lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me.” Past-President Barack Obama

                                          “Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don’t even know we have.” Thom Jones

                                          “It just kills me when people buy a dog when there are dogs in shelters. I still get emotional when I think of Karl sitting in that shelter. I wasn’t looking. I didn’t even think I had time for a dog, and then I met this little one and he needed help. It’s been so amazing to see him transform into a happy and confident companion.” Bob Harper

                                          Happy dog quotes

                                          Dogs can get us to do things and go places that we might never attempt on our own. Or, as “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz so aptly expresses, “Happiness is a warm puppy!”

                                          “Happiness is a warm puppy.” Charles M. Schulz

                                          “Why does watching a dog be a dog fill one with happiness?” Jonathan Safran Foerha

                                          “I do feel a lot more comfortable when my dog is with me.” Brian Schweitzer

                                          Dog walking quotes

                                          Walking the dog is simply not optional when your canine sidekick has to go.

                                          No matter what, we will go walking together, as these dog walking quotes remind us!

                                          “A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people can be persuaded to go for a walk.” O. A. Battista

                                          “I just want to be in my sweats, walk my dog, watch TV and eat pizza.” America Ferrera

                                          “The dog doesn’t know the difference between Saturday, Sunday and Monday, so I have to walk the dog early on those days too.” Donna Shalala

                                          Old dog quotes

                                          In people talk, we prefer words like “seasoned” or “golden years” when describing our age. But as these old dog quotes highlight, dogs don’t care – they just want to spend every single minute of their remaining days with us!

                                          “Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well.” Bonnie Wilcox

                                          “Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” Agnes Sligh

                                          “Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.” Sydney Jeanne Seward
