Now and forever, my dog is my heart.


Home is where my dog is.


I prefer to be in the company of dogs.


If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.


True friends leave paw prints on your heart.


Life is short, play with your dog.


No matter how little money or how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.


What sentiments about dogs do you find inspiring?
