Doggy quote of the month for November

“An immaculate house is a wonderful and elegant thing, but it can also be an empty and a cold thing.  I’ll take mine with flying paws and whisking tails and eager loving looks from dark earnest eyes.  When the children go away to school, and get married and move away, there are so many little quiet corners in a house.  A bevy of Cockers and an Irish or two livens things up considerably.  It is hard to be melancholy with somebody playing leapfrog around the room.”

Doggy quote of the month for September
