The Monday Morning Quote #186

The wonderful Belinda from The Labrador Rescue Trust delivered our new dog yesterday. His name is Jasper and he’s a 9 year old chocolate Lab., his previous owners have retired and bought a motor home with the intention of doing a lot of travelling. Sadly Jasper hates the movement of the motor home and is not a happy dog so with regret they decided to ask the LRT to find a new home for him.

Here are a few canine quotes via Phillip Humbert to celebrate Jasper’s arrival.

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

Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won’t buy the wag of his tail.  Henry Wheeler Shaw  

If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater… suggest that he wear a tail.   Fran Lebowitz

You can say any fool thing to a dog, and the dog will give you this look that says, “My God, you’re RIGHT! I never would’ve thought of that!”  Dave Barry

If your dog doesn’t like someone, you probably shouldn’t either.   Unknown

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

The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.  Unknown

Dogs never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.  Jerome K. Jerome

I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.  John Steinbeck

You may have a dog that won’t sit up, roll over or even cook breakfast, not because she’s too stupid to learn how but because she’s too smart to bother.   Rick Horowitz

My husband and I are either going to buy a dog or have a child. We can’t decide whether to ruin our carpets or ruin our lives.   Rita Rudner

When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.      
When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.     
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another human.
With him, I am all powerful.
I know a secret comfort and a private peace.  
He has brought me understanding where I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence is protection against dark and unknown things.  
He has promised to wait for me in case I need him.
And I expect I will, as I always have.
— Gene Hill
