Pets
  • Our pets are our family. — Ana Monnar

  • Our pets are the kids who never leave home, and that's absolutely fine by us because these kids don't ask for the keys to the car, don't turn up drunk at two in the morning, and don't complain if you turn their bedroom into a home gym. Their presence in times of upheaval and transition acts as a touchstone, a reminder of normalcy, of comfort, and the certainty of a love that can get you through. — Nick Trout

  • Perhaps the greatest gift an animal has to offer is a permanent reminder of who we really are. — Nick Trout

  • Scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job. — Franklin P. Jones

  • Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. — John Grogan

  • Teach your children how to behave with animals. Adopt a pet. Don't go buy one. Please. That's a sin. Let's get these puppy mills out of business. — Shelley Morrison

  • The average dog is a nicer person than the average person. — Andy Rooney

  • The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs. — Charles de Gaulle

  • The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too. — Samuel Butler

  • The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. — Mahatma Gandhi

  • The kind man feeds his beast before sitting down to dinner. — Hebrew Proverb
