Doggy quote of the month for January

“I don’t believe, despite all the gurus in the pet section of the bookstore and on TV, that there is a single way to train every dog, any more than that there is one way to buy a dog or put one down.  I think this idea causes much grief for dog lovers, as it does for dog choosers.

– Jon Katz, author

Doggy quote of the month for October

“Dogs are my favorite role models. I want to work like a dog, doing what I was born to do with joy and purpose. I want to play like a dog, with total, jolly abandon. I want to love like a dog, with unabashed devotion and complete lack of concern about what people do for a living, how much money they have, or how much they weigh. The fact that we still live with dogs, even when we don’t have to herd or hunt our dinner, gives me hope for humans and canines alike.”

– Oprah Winfrey, actress, writer, talk show host, philanthropist
