Tear Jerkers

Quotes that require tissues
By Karen B. London PhD, September 2010

The other day I was browsing through a catalog of dog-related products and there were so many beautiful sayings in it that I found myself a little teary. Surely I’m not alone in finding that quotes about dogs can be very moving. Here are some of the ones that really pulled on the heartstrings.

 
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?
