“When I wake up every morning, I smile and say, ‘Thank you.’ Because out of my window I can see the mountains, then go hiking with my dog and share her bounding joy in the world.”

― Carole King

“Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.”

― Caroline Knapp

“Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.”

― Caroline Knapp

“I’m 38 and I’m single, and I’m having my most intense and gratifying relationship with a dog. But we all learn about love in different ways, and this way happens to be mine.”

― Caroline Knapp

“My recipe for bliss on a Friday night consists of a ‘New York Times’ crossword puzzle and a new episode of ‘Homicide;’ Saturdays and Sundays are oriented around walks in the woods with the dog, human companion in tow some of the time but not always.”

― Caroline Knapp

“The kinds of roles dogs fill can be hard to come by in human relationships. We touch the dog or the pet at whim. There is a lack of self-consciousness and a fluidity to it that is absent from most human relationships. If someone acted that way to you, you’d feel claustrophobic pretty quickly. It’s a boundary violation.”

― Caroline Knapp

“When you study a dog you love, you find beauty in every small detail, and so it is with Lucille: I have become enchanted by the small asymmetrical whorls of white fur on either side of her chest, and by her tail, which she carries in a high confident curve, and by her eyes, which are watchful and intelligent, the color of chestnuts.”

― Caroline Knapp

“I don’t think that the world would be a better place if everyone owned a dog, and I don’t think that all relationships between dogs and their owners are good, healthy, or enriching.”

― Caroline Knapp

“You see airbrushed images of me, but I know the person who’s walking barefoot, dodging dog poo in the yard.”

― Carolyn Murphy

“Nobody’s going to tell me that my dog doesn’t love me. That’s crazy talk.”

― Carrie Underwood

“I’m a car singer, in fact sometimes I pretend to take my dog out for a walk, and I’ll just drive him around and start singin’.”

― Casey Abrams

“The first dog I had was owned by an abusive couple. He was very skittish. He wouldn’t let me hold him. It was explained to me that it was because of how he was treated.”

― Casey Affleck

“The sun don’t shine on the same dog’s ass all the time.”

― Catfish Hunter

“My dog was with me all the time. I talked to my dog. She was my best buddy. I shared all my secrets with her, but I don’t think I every really tried jokes out with the dog.”

― Cathy Guisewite

“I had such a close relationship with my dog, and my dog so filled the need in my life to have children that I just wanted Cathy to have that experience.”

― Cathy Guisewite

“A lot of married people certainly have wonderful relationships with their dogs, but when you’re single and your dog is the only other living thing in your house, it’s a really special relationship which I wanted CATHY to have.”

― Cathy Guisewite

“Here in California, a lot of people are just kinda rude, and they’re really impatient, especially on the freeways and stuff. And in Texas it’s not like that. Here, it’s kinda like a ‘dog eat dog’ world. But in Texas, it’s really friendly. And all my family is in Texas, so we would visit family more if we lived in Texas.”

― Cayden Boyd

“All I want in life is to pet my dog and cat. After that, all I want to do is post photos of them. Mostly because they’re the cutest things ever, but also because I don’t have to worry about how ugly I look in the photo.”

― Cazzie David

“As soon as I walk outside, I get depressed. If I see a dog, I’ll get upset about how much it must suck to be on a leash. I’ll get on a bus and tear up at the thought of how the driver has to go back and forth on the same street for eight hours in mind-numbing traffic.”

― Cazzie David

“When I was young, I preferred dogs, but when I moved into a flat when I was 18, it wasn’t practical to have a dog. So I got a couple of kittens, and that was it.”

― Celia Hammond

“No dog is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate dogs, I train people. I am the dog whisperer.”

― Cesar Millan

“The dog is a reflection of your energy, of your behavior. You have to ask, ‘What am I doing?’ That’s the right question to ask.”

― Cesar Millan

“I believe a calm dog is a happy, obedient dog that won’t get into trouble.”

― Cesar Millan

“Aggression is not a breed thing. It’s a state of mind, and it comes from how the human is with the dog. There are four levels of energy, regardless of the breed: low, medium, high, very high. The idea is to get a dog in your same level or lower than you.”

― Cesar Millan

“Owners lavish love on their pets, which is why so many go from non-aggressive pups to being out of control when they’re older. People just don’t realise their dog must respect them as leader of the pack.”

― Cesar Millan

“Americans are very big about loving the dog first, so when you tell them you have to set rules and limitations, a lot of people believe it’s going to hurt their feelings. They’re actually looking for you to be the pack leader.”

― Cesar Millan

“The dog can only become what’s in your bubble. The dog is imitating the energy that is in your bubble. You are the source, the feast of energy. If you feel anxious, the dog becomes anxious with you. If you become nervous, the dog wakes up nervous with you.”

― Cesar Millan

“A dog is a vehicle, you know; a dog is a window to Mother Nature, and that’s the closest species we have.”

― Cesar Millan

“When I go and work with people, I never say, ‘Your dog is changed for the rest of its life.’ It’s like a diet. You’ve got to maintain a discipline and ritual in your life to keep a certain figure.”

― Cesar Millan

“The reality is, if you have a high-level-energy dog, it’s not going to be happy with a one-hour walk. Those types of dogs are going to require more than one hour of physical challenge in the outside world.”

― Cesar Millan

“Bill Gates can’t control a high-level-energy dog, because his energy is very low, very calm. Very intellectual. A dog doesn’t see that as leadership.”

― Cesar Millan

“Oprah is a wealthy person, pack leader of the human world. So many see her as the dominant one, as the authority figure. The way I view her energy, seeing her on TV, is a very calm, quiet energy. You need, in order to gain control, higher energy than your dog.”

― Cesar Millan

“When looking to adopt a new dog, the most important thing to consider is always the energy of the dog and how the dog will fit in with your lifestyle and your family.”

― Cesar Millan

“Dog parks can be a fantastic way to socialize your dog, but it’s important for owners to understand that a dog park isn’t exercise and isn’t a substitute for walk. A visit to the dog park is fun – play time.”

― Cesar Millan

“I have never met a dog I couldn’t help; however, I have met humans who weren’t willing to change.”

― Cesar Millan

“’The Dog Whisperer’ to me is a show that had a passion, and it helped me save relationships.”

― Cesar Millan

“The pack is very important for a dog. Once you give him the right pack and the right energy, you look at him.”

― Cesar Millan

“I wish my kid would act like my dog sometimes. My dog listens to me and does what I tell him to do.”

― Cesar Millan

“Very normal trajectory of a fighter’s career – you start out fighting at the YMCA. You move on to the dog park. You get into a coliseum. On your way out, you go back to the YMCA, and then you finish up at the dog park.”

― Chael Sonnen

“The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool: these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.”

― Chanakya

“The life of an uneducated man is as useless as the tail of a dog which neither covers its rear end, nor protects it from the bites of insects.”

― Chanakya

“No babies for me until I’m in my 30s! I’m focused on my career right now. I can’t even take care of my dog.”

― Chanel Iman

“I’m a mad dog whose only concern is winning.”

― Charles Barkley

“Of course, I’m not often the top dog, but sometimes it’s better not to be top dog, because you last longer. If a movie or play flops, you always blame the lead. They say, ‘He couldn’t carry it.’ They always blame him. But they rarely blame the second or third banana.”

― Charles Durning

“Young blood must have its course, lad, and every dog its day.”

― Charles Kingsley

“A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog’s ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins.”

― Charles Lamb

“Yesterday I was a dog. Today I’m a dog. Tomorrow I’ll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There’s so little hope for advancement.”

― Charles M. Schulz

“Starting out, I bet I didn’t get a lot of parts because of my strange voice. I’m not consciously thinking, ‘Hey, sound like a squeaky dog toy mixed with a bagful of rusty nails.’ It’s just what my voice has done.”

― Charlie Day

“I was bit by a dog when I was two years old, and it almost mauled my face. It almost killed and/or blinded me. I was this close to dying at two, which is terrible. I survived it, and there was no head trauma or anything like that. Honestly, it was a miracle.”

― Charlie Puth

“I have a boyfriend and a dog, and I still haven’t figured out what I want to be when I grow up.”

― Chelsea Clinton

“I walk my dog every morning.”

― Chelsea Clinton

“I was the singing voice of a cartoon character. I did dog food commercials. I did a lot of commercials, actually, and helped pay my rent and my classes. Then I’d get one good line or two good scenes. I was building my career and building my own experience and learning technically what it was like to be on a set and all of those things.”

― Cheryl Ladd

“Each day when I’m walking with my dog through the damp forest, I’m thinking about the atmosphere, and it often works its way into my next scene somehow.”

― Chevy Stevens

“I think having a dog makes you more compassionate.”

― Cheyenne Jackson

“Get your dog spayed or neutered. That’s one of the first things that you should go and do.”

― China Anne McClain

“When I started writing songs for Temple of the Dog, I went to my room with my acoustic guitar, and I was happy staying in that mode. It was more chordal based and more lyric driven. I enjoyed not making riff-based songs built around a guitar idea.”

― Chris Cornell

“One thing that I have thought ever since Temple of the Dog is that I would never say no to an interesting collaboration, and that’s partly where Audioslave came from.”

― Chris Cornell

“I really love the sound of my dog snoring.”

― Chris Evans

“I don’t want to be treated like I came from another planet or something or was somehow born with some weird birthright or super power. I don’t view myself that way. I am a normal guy, picking up the crap from the dog and scraping the BBQ and having a beer and fixing the shed out back.”

― Chris Hadfield

“If it’s just brushstrokes wrestling around, it isn’t much of a picture book, is it? There still has to be a picture. And maybe it needs to be a picture of a dog named Daisy or a little girl riding a bike. So I have to be careful before I get too carried away in the manner itself.”

― Chris Raschka

“The ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ have been favourites of mine since my childhood when I misread ‘Aslan’ as ‘Alsatian’ and was struck by the genius of naming a lion after a dog!”

― Chris Riddell

“I get tired of people trying to dog out the radio for not playing this or that. There are lots of people who like what they play – otherwise, they wouldn’t play it.”

― Chris Stapleton

“I don’t know if what kids really want is a hamster. What they want is a dog. So the hamster ends up being a substitute: ‘Well, would you accept this?’”

― Chris Van Allsburg

“Everyone thinks that I have an Instagram account for my dog, but I did not make that. It’s a fan!”

― Chrissy Teigen

“I remember making my own dog food and feeling very fulfilled by it, then by day four I was over it.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“I never planned to be a model at all. I moved to Paris to study art, and I was there working as an artist, taking classes, and I had a little sick dog that I was using up all of my money to try and heal. It was right at that point that this photographer, Errol Sawyer, saw me at the phoning office and convinced me to let him take my photo.”

― Christie Brinkley

“Everything I have has dog hair on it, and that’s just the way it is.”

― Christina Applegate

“I have a Pomeranian dog named Nutmeg – a combination of the soccer move and the colour. It’s perfect.”

― Christine Sinclair

“I try to refrain from the alarmist statement, really I do. It’s bad for the liver and worries the dog, who has plenty enough to worry about as it is.”

― Christopher Buckley

“We heard about people who went backstage at dog shows with scissors and cut parts of a poodle’s hair off to sabotage the dog.”

― Christopher Guest

“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.”

― Christopher Morley

“I actually was brought up by an Airedale. I don’t really remember my parents, especially my mother. It was only the dog that I saw.”

― Christopher Plummer

“I like cats a lot. I’ve always liked cats. They’re great company. When they eat, they always leave a little bit at the bottom of the bowl. A dog will polish the bowl, but a cat always leaves a little bit. It’s like an offering.”

― Christopher Walken

“I’d love to do a character with a wife, a nice little house, a couple of kids, a dog, maybe a bit of singing, and no guns and no killing, but nobody offers me those kind of parts.”

― Christopher Walken

“Don’t let the same dog bite you twice.”

― Chuck Berry

“I respond to authenticity and originality, and I’ve been a fan of Don Winslow’s ever since ‘The Power Of The Dog.’”

― Chuck Hogan

“In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We’ve got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.”

― Chuck Norris

“For me, it’s about being at home and living a life. Taking the dog for a walk, doing the shopping, emptying the dishwasher, going for a run.”

― Cillian Murphy

“An abiding preoccupation for me is how much of our lives are invisible and unknown by other people, like the Chekhov story ‘The Lady With the Little Dog.’”

― Claire Messud

“I want to buy pizza, but my players don’t want pizza; maybe they don’t love pizza. Because I said when we make a clean sheet, I will buy everybody a pizza. Maybe they wait until I say, ‘Okay, a good dinner.’ I told them, the clean sheet, I buy everybody a pizza. I think they wait until I improve my offer: ‘Okay, a pizza and a hot dog.’”

― Claudio Ranieri

“Naturally, everybody has certain things they wish they hadn’t done in life. They wish they hadn’t kicked their dog when they were ten or something.”

― Clint Eastwood

“I’m a great dog fanatic. My own dog died a little while ago and I take it very personally when things die – it’s a major offence.”

― Clive Barker

“Heinrich Heine once imagined the exiled Israelite as a dog who regains his stolen manhood only when he embraces the Sabbath bride. I see western swing performing a similar function in hardscrabble Texas, turning dirt-poor hired hands into Dapper Dans with magic feet at the Saturday night hoe-down.”

― Clive Sinclair

“If you ask the typical two- or three-year-old or a teenager what a robot is, they will think about a humanoid that does my homework for me or walks the dog. When I go and talk to kids and pull out the Roomba, it’s not this big ‘Wow!’ moment.”

― Colin Angle

“I’m such an impulse buyer. I once went into a pet store for dog food and left with a fish tank and five fish. And yes, of course I forgot to buy dog food.”

― Colton Underwood

“They kicked me out of the church when I’m a little girl because they said I’m singing like a dog. They didn’t want me to sing there anymore.”

― Concha Buika

“I like to visit my horse, have a walk with my dog.”

― Cornelia Funke

“I have two Iceland horses, a very hairy dog called Looney, and a guinea pig.”

― Cornelia Funke

“I made a lot of good friends in Philadelphia and the last thing that I would want to do is dog anyone in that clubhouse. If I made it sound like that, it was a mistake.”

― Cory Lidle

“It’s like, say, if you were a dog. You notice that you’re getting old, and you look at your human and you think, ‘Why isn’t this human getting old?’… But now we’re the human looking out and imagining a different human.”

― Cynthia Kenyon

“If a superhero knocks over a building, and there are 5,000 people in the building that we can presume are now dead, does it matter? Because they’re not people we know. But if one dog we like gets run over by a car, it’s the worst thing we’ve ever seen. I totally understand where that visceral reaction comes from. I have that same reaction.”

― D. B. Weiss

“I started playing bluegrass with my family, so there were the G, C and D chords. I was playing a Martin acoustic because that’s what Carter Stanley of the Stanley Brothers played. Then I got into the really raw blues of Hound Dog Taylor and started on electric guitar.”

― Dan Auerbach

“I think I was a shy kid. I grew up without television. I had a dog, and we lived up in the White Mountains in the summer, and I had no friends up there. And I would just go play hide-and-seek with my dog and probably had some imaginary friends.”

― Dan Brown

“Getting straight A’s for having lots of tests is not the same as getting A’s on the tests. Weighing a malnourished dog every day doesn’t make him any better.”

― Dan Gelber

“The press is a watchdog. Not an attack dog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can’t be right all the time. He doesn’t bark only when he sees or smells something that’s dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.”

― Dan Rather

“’Twin Peaks’ without David Lynch is like a dog without a bark.”

― Dana Ashbrook

“Nobody else feels the same way about your dog that you do.”

― Daniel Clowes

“I signed a dog collar. Someone gave me their dog – a live dog – and I signed its collar. When they handed me the dog, I didn’t know what to do. That was weird.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“I’ve always said that actor years is like dog years: it feels like forever when you’re not working.”

― Danielle Panabaker

“My mother often told us that it is a poor dog that will not wag its own tail.”

― Danny K. Davis

“Shake Shack started off as a summer hot dog cart in Madison Square Park. It was not meant to be a company – it was completely accidental. It started off as an expression of community building.”

― Danny Meyer

“People who played action video games have better vision in the sort of conditions where there is not much contrast. It can make all the difference when driving at dusk, or in fog, in being able, for instance, to see a dog crossing the road in twilight.”

― Daphne Bavelier

“Breaks balance out. The sun don’t shine on the same ol’ dog’s rear end every day.”

― Darrell Royal

“’Hound Dog’ is a really short record, and most singles didn’t last three minutes.”

“My songs are like a three-legged dog – you have to get to know them to have any love for them.”

― Dave Matthews

“You kick a dog long enough, that dog is going to bite you or die.”

― Dave Pelzer

“I reserve the right to tell shaggy dog stories or even common jokes as part of what I’m doing. I don’t give a damn if half the audience walks out.”

― David Antin

“Yes, it will go through the disciplines that all puppies go through including house training and puppy walking, then at twelve month old it the training becomes a lot more rigorous which has to be done carefully otherwise you are in danger of stressing the dog.”

― David Blunkett

“I’ve had a guide dog since 1969. Not the same one, of course: I’ve had five.”

― David Blunkett

“Before I had my own restaurant, I was never top dog in the kitchen. I’ve always had a low opinion of myself as a cook.”

― David Chang

“The first year I was on the show, it took an interviewer about 45 minutes to get it out of me that I even had a dog, and even then I wouldn’t tell him the dog’s name.”

― David Hyde Pierce

“I have a yellow labrador, Tuffy, and a little rescue dog, Bella, who is the boss.”

― David Jason

“The weather here is gorgeous. It’s mild and feels like it’s in the eighties. The hot dog vendors got confused because of the weather and thought it was spring, so they accidentally changed the hot dog water in their carts.”

― David Letterman

“The relationships I’ve had with animals are often some of the most profound. That’s why you cry when a dog dies in a movie. The connection is so deep and so profound, and it isn’t cluttered by humanity.”

― David Lowery

“My parents are very hard working people who did everything they could for their children. I have two brothers and they worked dog hard to give us an education and provide us with the most comfortable life possible. My dad provided for his family daily. So, yes, that is definitely in my DNA.”

― David Oyelowo

“Asher means ‘happy and blessed’ which embodies my eldest. Caleb means ‘stubborn and tenacious dog’ and I can’t even tell you how much that is my little boy! It was a useful warning.”

― David Oyelowo

“When a man tries to communicate with an animal, there’s a relationship between them, and you generally find this between the dog and his master.”

― David Seltzer

“I’ve always been a dog owner, from the time I was a little boy in Chicago.”

― David Seltzer

“When a dog barks at the moon, then it is religion; but when he barks at strangers, it is patriotism!”

― David Starr Jordan

“No man who has not tried it can imagine what dreadful hard work it is to listen. Splitting gum logs in the dog days is child’s play to it. I’ve tried both, and give the preference to the gum logs.”

― Davy Crockett

“I would rather be beaten, and be a man, than to be elected and be a little puppy dog.”

― Davy Crockett

“I believe that I was a dog in a past life. That’s the only thing that would explain why I like to snack on Purina Dog Chow.”

― Dean Koontz

“My perfect day is to work incredibly well in the morning and write something wonderful, then take the dog for a walk and go for a swim in the ladies’ ponds on Hampstead Heath or work in my allotment. Then I get tarted up in the evening and go out in London to dinner or the cinema.”

― Deborah Moggach

“We just started filming ‘Stray Dog’ really close to the finishing of ‘Winter’s Bone,’ down in Southern Missouri.”

― Debra Granik

“Court TV. I can’t stop watching it. I am absolutely obsessed! If I’m not reading a book or spending time with my husband, my friends or my dog, I am watching Court TV.”

“I’ve tried word processors, but I think I’m too old a dog to use one.”

― Dee Brown

“I got my dog back, in African-American language, your dog means your passion, your fire.”

― Deion Sanders

“I love women, but I feel like you can’t trust some of them. Some of them are liars, you know? Like I was in the park and I met this girl, she was cute and she had a dog. And I went up to her, we started talking. She told me her dog’s name. Then I said, ‘Does he bite?’ She said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Oh yeah? Then how does he eat?’ Liar.”

― Demetri Martin

“I like women, but you can’t always trust them. Some of them are big liars, like this one woman I met who had a dog. I asked her her dog’s name and then I asked, ‘Does he bite?’ and she said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘So how does he eat?’ Liar!”

― Demetri Martin

“Certain movies like ‘Wag The Dog,’ we used improv on every scene that we did. Pretty much, we would shoot from the script and then some stuff that we came up with in rehearsal, and then we’d have at least one or two takes where we completely went off the script and just flew by the seat of our pants.”

― Denis Leary

“My buddies are like, ‘You live the most amazing life!’ Well, I’m working like a dog. I come home most nights and pass out on the couch.”

― Dennis Crowley

“I did a lot of films in Europe, in Spain. I went to Australia and did ‘Mad Dog Morgan’; I did ‘Apocalypse Now’ in the Philippines; I did Wim Wenders’ film ‘The American Friend’ in Germany.”

― Dennis Hopper

“Since the 1970s, I have asked students if they would first try to save their drowning dog or a drowning stranger. And for 40 years I have received the same results: One third vote for their dog, one third for the stranger, and one third don’t know what they would do.”

― Dennis Prager

“Anybody who knows me knows that I’m no attack dog.”

― Deval Patrick

“Apart from ‘VIP’ being a blockbuster movie, the various characters such as mine, the Luna bike I use in the movie, the lovable amma and appa, a pet dog named Harry Potter, the innocent brother, etc., had a huge reach among the audiences.”

― Dhanush

“I stagger out of bed, take the dogs outside, and then I’ll get a Diet Coke and a couple of dog biscuits and go upstairs. By the time I’ve consumed my Diet Coke and had a quick run through the morning email and Twitter feed, I will probably be compos mentis enough to work.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“I have a cottage near Aldeburgh, and from there it’s a sturdy two-mile walk across farmland to an empty beach, where I collect hag stones and run around with the dog. I’m a keen walker, and I love Suffolk’s big skies.”

“You really can’t take a cat and turn it into a dog, or try and get lemons off an apple tree, or what have you.”

“Between Alan Freed in Cleveland and Bob Horn and Lee Stewart in Philadelphia and George ‘Hound Dog’ Lorenz in Buffalo, they began to find out that white kids liked black music. It was a very significant period of time before I got there.”

― Dick Clark

“There’s a saying. If you want someone to love you forever, buy a dog, feed it and keep it around.”

― Dick Dale

“We waited until we perfected the dog food, and then we worked on the cat food. Even though it’s not going through the roof the way the dog food is, I think it will catch on eventually.”

― Dick Van Patten

“I may eat nine bowls of dog food, because eight isn’t enough.”

― Dick Van Patten

“My dog Jake ran up to Dolly Parton, and he put his nose up her skirt. We were like, ‘Oh my God, don’t do that.’ I didn’t know Dolly, and she said, ‘Watch out there little doggie, don’t start something you can’t finish.’”

― Dierks Bentley

“I have a St Bernard dog. They are very tough to take care of in the tropical weather in Chennai. They usually are found in mountains and the snow.”

“I’m like an old dog, I hate to be run off from home.”

― Doc Watson

“I look at myself like a show dog. I’ve got to keep her clipped and trimmed and in good shape.”

― Dolly Parton

“I must say that I am rather partial to funny dog videos.”

― Dominic Holland

“I never thought I could learn much from a dog or cat. They sleep when we sleep. They eat when we eat. I’m into observing animals being as wild as they can be in a captive environment.”

― Dominic Monaghan

“I want to be a dog, but I’m a pussycat.”

― Don Rickles

“Herb Solo at that time was the head of MGM. I said, ‘I want to live like Clint Eastwood.’ Did I know at that time Clint Eastwood, to him, Heaven was a truck, a dog, and a picnic basket for food or something?”

“I was trying in ‘The Power of the Dog’ to write a brutally accurate in-your-face, if you will, description of 30 years in the war on drugs. And the effect that that had on people.”

“The day I showed up to South Carolina to work, I was with my kid and my ex and our dog and Kirk was hanging with this weird guy and I kind of defined the two of them by his friend and made a vow to avoid him.”

“If you get a dog that goes out there and bumps the sheep, comes on too hard, the sheep don’t trust him.”

― Donald McCaig

“Border collies predate the British Kennel Club. They’ve been bred consistently for 100 years. They’re the last working dogs in the world, with some minor exceptions. Bench shows, dog shows have ruined the other breeds, like the hunting dogs. Border collies are peasant dogs, and that’s protected them.”

― Donald McCaig

“Border collies were trained in Scotland. They have the Scots’ commands in their genes. At the dog trials, the owners wear those three-piece western suits, cowboy boots and 10-gallon hats, but they carry Scots shepherd’s crooks over their arms and talk to their dogs in Scots accents.”

― Donald McCaig

“You have to train a dog to think.”

― Donald McCaig

“A sheepdog trial is the most difficult test of a man and dog ever devised.”

― Donald McCaig

“That we have altered the dog genetically is well understood; it is hardly known how they changed us.”

― Donald McCaig

“It is the job of the dog trainer to summon the dog’s genetics, not to impose man’s will over dog’s.”

― Donald McCaig

“Though each trainer believes his or her method is best, I don’t think it matters which method the pet owner adopts so long as that owner finds a capable mentor and sticks with the training. Eventually you will learn to see your dog, and when that happens, the richness of your and your dog’s lives will tell you what to do next.”

― Donald McCaig

“The first thing I do each morning is get out of bed and give my dog, Audrey, a hug. She’s a Jack Russell. I think having an animal is a wonderful thing, particularly dogs. They are great levelers, there’s no nonsense with them, and they just want simple affection.”

― Donatella Versace

“I love nothing more than taking my dog, Molly, for a long walk on Sunday morning. Then I’ll indulge in some Bikram yoga or something fun like reflexology.”

― Donna Air

“In modern politics, polls often serve as the canary in the mine – an early warning signal of danger or trends. But polls can also be used to wag the dog – diverting attention from something significant.”

― Donna Brazile

“My father read ‘The New York Times,’ my mother did secretarial work, we had a dog, we had a garden, I had a brother.”

― Donna Leon

“The dog doesn’t know the difference between Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, so I have to walk the dog early those days too.”

― Donna Shalala

“My daughters are in kindergarten and second grade, so many of the stories they tell, write, or illustrate are about each other and our dog, Buster.”

― Doreen Cronin

“If I’d find a dog, I’d try to find the owner, of course, but it was mine! I just can’t live without them; I love them so much. I have cats, too. People call me all the time and say, ‘We know of a couple of cats people don’t care for,’ and I say, ‘Bring them!’ That’s it – two words. I’m always open for that.”

― Doris Day

“I think it’s wonderful that people in pickup trucks are buying two flats of dog food and a copy of ‘Bastard.’ I want my view of the world to be right up there next to gallon boxes of Tide.”

― Dorothy Allison

“What separates me is I’m a dog. I use that term very strongly because that’s what I am. That’s why I have an angry demeanor. It’s not a front. It’s not a face.”

― Doug Baldwin

“Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog.”

― Doug Larson

“I like to wake up late, around 11 A.M., especially if I have been out the night before. Then I go to brunch with either my friends or my girlfriend. I then like to just chill out: read the papers, read some scripts and then take it very easy. If it’s sunny, I go for a walk with my dog, Niles, in the countryside.”

― Douglas Booth

“I have a dog named Steve that lives at the studio.”

― Drake Bell

“So many times, I watch games and think, ‘Man, why is that guy trying to score like that? He can’t do it.’ But he’s been told his whole life, ‘You have to go get 40 if you want to be one of the top dogs.’ It’s my goal to build a lane where you can be a top dog, and you don’t gotta go get that 40. You can go get four and still be a top dog.”

― Draymond Green

“There’s a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog. I have to exert myself and really say, oh God, I’ve got to see my friends ’cause I’m too content being by myself.”

― Drew Barrymore

“Before the Civil War, there were no national cemeteries, no processes for identifying the dead in the battle. There weren’t any dog tags, and there was no next-of-kin notification. You didn’t necessarily even hear what the fate of your loved ones had been. It was up to their comrades to write and inform you.”

― Drew Gilpin Faust

“When I think about it, the happiest and most successful people I know don’t just love what they do, they’re obsessed with solving something that matters to them. They remind me of a dog chasing a tennis ball: Their eyes go a little crazy, the leash snaps and they go bounding off, plowing through whatever gets in the way.”

― Drew Houston

“Dog is God spelled backward.”

― Duane Chapman

“I’m going to be Dog, and I’m going to be an entertainer. And I’m going to make mistakes.”

― Duane Chapman

“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”

― Dwight D. Eisenhower

“I try to think what the character is thinking. Then, hopefully, I begin to feel it. I act and react not because I’m recalling a dog killed by a fire engine, but because I’m concentrating on what the character is going through.”

“Do not wave stick when trying to catch dog.”

― Earl Derr Biggers

“When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are. The dog is not judging you.”

― Eckhart Tolle

“When I read the pilot ‘for Married with Children’, it just reminded me of my Uncle Joe… just a self-deprecating kind of guy. He’d come home from work, and the wife would maybe say ‘I ran over the dog this morning in the driveway’. And he would say ‘Fine, what’s for dinner?”

― Ed O’Neill

“I have this dog named Marley, and it is a kind of love I had never known. I have a hard time believing Marley did not come from my body. I know that sounds insane, but I feel that connected to her. She made me realize I wanted to adopt children.”

― Edie Falco

“My friends started having children after college, while I was pursuing this crazy acting career and living hand to mouth. Plus, all my boyfriends were artists struggling to make a living. Having kids didn’t make any sense – why would I take on more of a financial burden when I couldn’t even afford a dog?”

― Edie Falco

“My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet.”

― Edith Wharton

“When a man’s best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem.”

“I remember the first roll of film I took. It was wintertime, and I wanted to shoot a roll of film to practice processing it, so I took an entire 36-exposure roll of my dog, Tippy.”

― Edward Burtynsky

“In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn’t merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.”

― Edward Hoagland

“The dog, on the other hand, has few or no ideas because his brain acts in coarse fashion and because there are few connections with each single process.”

― Edward Thorndike

“If you have a dog, and you’re a person whose moods are constantly changing, there’s a moment when you look at the dog, and you feel bad for them because they’re attached to you, and so it’s funny for the dog to vocalize those things in some ways.”

― Eileen Myles

“Dogs are a companion species. It’s about time – you have an animal for about 15, 16 years, a generation. That time holds so much. You might have had five or six relationships with human beings but one dog.”

― Eileen Myles

“For most people, they only thing they know about bobsled is ‘Cool Runnings.’ Well, ‘Cool Runnings’ was, of course, four men in a bobsled, and four-man is considered the highlight of our sport. It’s what everybody knows. It’s what everybody watches. And it’s the big dog of our sport.”

― Elana Meyers

“My fashion philosophy is, if you’re not covered in dog hair, your life is empty.”

― Elayne Boosler

“I have always put my own money into Tails of Joy. For years, every time a dog walked by, my husband would say, ‘There goes our beach house.’”

― Elayne Boosler

“The movie I’m really excited about that I had really fun doing is ‘Feed the Dog.’ It’s with Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez. It’s really fun. It’s raunchy, like ‘Superbad’ meets ‘Risky Business,’ kind of. I got to be a really fun character, an out-there Mrs. Robinson-type character. I get to seduce Nat.”

― Elisabeth Shue

“I don’t let guys do hickeys. That’s like a dog marking his territory or something.”

― Eliza Dushku

“There’s no reason to keep a piece of furniture in your house that is so sacred and rare that you can’t put your feet up on it and a dog can’t jump up on it. Likewise, a book that sits on a shelf like a piece of porcelain, only to be admired, never to be read again, is a dead book.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert

“You can look at your dog and see that it’s thinking and has strong feelings. And if it does, so do wolves. And if wolves do, so do elephants. People aren’t the only beings that think and feel.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“As far as I’m concerned, I own my dogs as I own my body. My legs are with me when I take a shower, and I feel no shame. If I were to lose one, I’d grieve, and people would send sympathy cards, but it would be my condition that evoked the sympathy, not the fate of the leg. That’s like losing a dog.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“Every dog might wish to be Dog One, but like us, most dogs want membership in the group even more than they want supremacy over others.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“I would like to visit a dog’s mind to know what he’s thinking and feeling.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“When I was very young, my nanny was a big Newfoundland dog… whose task was to keep me from drowning.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“People acquire a dog, don’t understand it, can’t train it, get fed up, and… offer it for adoption, hoping to pass on the problem to somebody else. But nobody wants a problem dog.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“Dogs like to learn stuff, if not from another dog, then people are OK… They love activity, playing, interesting walks, and just belonging, being together.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“All the members of the dog family – domestic dogs, wolves, coyotes, dingoes – are very aware of territory. A group must control its own territory – you can’t have others taking it from you, because then you won’t have enough food.”

― Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“Sayles could pull a performance out of a dog. I’m serious. He was just amazing. The world could fall apart and he remained on neutral.”

― Elizabeth Pena

“It’s funny to be playing a mom. I mean, I’m not a mom in real life. I don’t even have a dog.”

― Elizabeth Reaser

“If you’ve ever watched someone who is a mother talk on the phone, feed the dog, bounce the baby, it’s just astounding to see someone manage, more or less well, to do all those things. But on a computer, multitasking is really binary. The task is either in the foreground, or it’s not.”

― Ellen Ullman

“I attempted to fish in Scotland and I managed to hook a dog. It was a horrible moment but the dog turned out to be fine.”

― Emily Blunt

“If fame belonged to me, I could not escape her; if she did not, the longest day would pass me on the chase, and the approbation of my dog would forsake me then. My barefoot rank is better.”

― Emily Dickinson

“My idea of a perfect pet is a really, really big dog! Huge!”

― Emily VanCamp

“Mark Haddon’s ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ was published while I was trying to work out how to write ‘Elizabeth Is Missing,’ and reading the story of that impaired amateur detective gave me the licence I needed to attempt one of my own.”

― Emma Healey

“Opening up your life to a dog who needs a home is one of the most fulfilling things you can do.”

― Emma Kenney

“If you want a dog, go to your local animal shelter and adopt one. It’s not rocket science, it’s dog science.”

― Emma McLaughlin

“I’m even able to have kind of a little bit of a second career in dog rescue. Doesn’t pay anything, but it’s become a real passion for me.”

― Emmylou Harris

“You really do learn every day with every dog; they are all so unique and different. But if you’re patient and you understand where they’re coming from, and if you are consistent, they will be fine. They teach you to give your full attention.”

― Emmylou Harris

“If a dog doesn’t put you first where are you both? In what relation? A dog needs God. It lives by your glances, your wishes. It even shares your humor. This happens about the fifth year. If it doesn’t happen you are only keeping an animal.”

― Enid Bagnold

“I travelled with Neville; he is my road dog. We travelled on NXT and FCW before that. He opened my eyes to a whole genre of music in reggae.”

― Enzo Amore

“I think we make too many records. One record a year is crazy to me. But some people have to sell tickets. The label has to meet their quarterly number: ‘We need a record a year.’ All of a sudden, the tail’s wagging the dog. It’s not the music; it’s everything else making the music. That’s just backwards. It’s wrong.”

― Eric Church

“Shelter dogs should be adopted into loving homes, not used in cruel experiments. That’s why I support the Cruelty Free International global dog campaign.”

― Eric McCormack

“I hope that dog lovers around the world will support the Cruelty Free International global campaign to end the use of dogs in outdated and cruel experiments.”

― Eric McCormack

― Eric Metaxas

“I did have a dog for a few years when I was little, but then just really had cats until I was about 21.”

― Eric Roberts

“I love the idea of my daughter looking back at her childhood and growing up with a dog.”

― Erika Christensen

“I love animals. I just don’t want to have a pet. That’s OK, right? I would take a dog over a cat, at least to interact with you. I feel like cats just stare you down all the time. Cats have, like, bad attitudes.”

― Erin Foster

“When a child is locked in the bathroom with water running and he says he’s doing nothing but the dog is barking, call 911.”

― Erma Bombeck

“Youngsters of the age of two and three are endowed with extraordinary strength. They can lift a dog twice their own weight and dump him into the bathtub.”

― Erma Bombeck

“They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.”

― Ernest Hemingway

“In modern war… you will die like a dog for no good reason.”

― Ernest Hemingway

“The ancient feud between cat and dog is not forgotten in the north, for the Lynx is the deadly foe of the Fox and habitually kills it when there is soft snow and scarcity of easier prey.”

― Ernest Thompson Seton

“Whenever I get three-four days in hand, I fly down to Delhi to spend time with my family and my dog.”

― Esha Gupta

“There has always been a tension in my life between the romantic and the practical. I can’t hole myself up in a cabin and write down ideas for the rest of my life. I also need to be able to clean out a dog bite.”

― Ethan Canin

“Can you imagine a guy breaking into your car, and he steals your guitar case ’cause he thinks it’s a guitar, and he gets it home and opens it up and there’s a rake inside it, an electric toilet plunger and a dog skull? That actually happened.”

― Eugene Chadbourne

“I’m French, so I’m quite lazy about exercising, and I smoke. But I do love going for a run in the morning with my dog. That’s all.”

― Eva Green

“First there was racism. Then liberals created institutional racism and coded racism. You can only hear it with a dog whistle.”

― Evan Sayet

“I snap with my mom. It was a great way for me to see my dog when I was in college. We send selfies, too.”

― Evan Spiegel

“I write at a desk. I have a room of my own where I can have my computer. I write in there, usually directly onto my computer. It used to be the room where my two sons used to sleep with the dog and the cat, but now it’s all mine. It has pictures of art from my books on the walls.”

― Eve Bunting

“I am completely turning into my mom. Me, trying to be stern, is her. Or when I make silly voices. My mom always uses weird voices if she’s talking to a kid or a dog. I’m the same person – completely my mother.”

― Eve

“Old-world romance underlines my relationships, even with my son and the dog.”

― Fawad Khan

“I really do believe there are things passed down. Behaviour, not just DNA. Psychological make-up. You can see it in dogs. If you want to breed a calm dog, don’t get two fighters.”

“I saw ‘The Artist.’ It’s really beautiful and it’s all done to the letter with all the silent film techniques. The costumes were amazing and the dog is so good.”

― Florence Welch

“’Dog Days’ was recorded with pens and the wall, and half a stolen drum kit that was out of tune, in what was basically a cupboard. The only instrument I could really play was my voice, so we just layered everything a hundred times. It was enthusiasm over skill.”

― Florence Welch

“I had been playing really interesting roles before I got great roles. Little ones – ‘The Crying Game’ I loved working on, and then ‘Bird,’ ‘Ghost Dog,’ so many films.”

― Forest Whitaker

“If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater suggest that he wear a tail.”

“Truth is a good dog; but always beware of barking too close to the heels of an error, lest you get your brains kicked out.”

― Francis Bacon

“Oh, love will make a dog howl in rhyme.”

― Francis Beaumont

“The remedy for thirst? It is the opposite of the one for a dog bite: run always after a dog, he’ll never bite you; drink always before thirst, and it will never overtake you.”

― Francois Rabelais

“An actor is never so great as when he reminds you of an animal – falling like a cat, lying like a dog, moving like a fox.”

― Francois Truffaut

“But in order to be the thing you want to be, you have to work like a dog at the thing you love.”

― Frank Langella

“Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job.”

― Franklin P. Jones

“Anybody who finds it easy to make money on the horses is probably in the dog food business.”

― Franklin P. Jones

“Following rules is, of course, the reason the dog is man’s best friend is because the dog follows rules, and they actually do experiments on that, is that how well certain breeds of dogs follow rules, and how much they internalize them. And so many hierarchical animals, obviously they follow rules.”

― Frans de Waal

“Sometimes I read about someone saying with great authority that animals have no intentions and no feelings, and I wonder, ‘Doesn’t this guy have a dog?’”

― Frans de Waal

“Everybody I run into goes, ‘Hey, ‘Best in Show!” Or, ‘Hey, that dog movie!’ which I don’t mind because I’m not too good on titles.”

― Fred Willard

“My dream pet? I like a couple of them, man: monkey, I love dogs. See, tigers, I don’t know – I can’t be playing with something like that. A monkey, I can handle it. A dog, yeah; I would get a monkey.”

― French Montana

“Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called ‘Ego’.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

“One of my favorite things about playing Avery Jennings on ‘Dog With a Blog’ is that I get to play a real teenager who deals with everyday issues.”

― G. Hannelius

“One of the things that’s interesting is that the PC has always had a huge amount of scalability. It was sort of the wild dog that moved into Australia and killed all the local life because it could just adapt. There used to be these dedicated devices, like dedicated word processors.”

― Gabe Newell

“Necessity has the face of a dog.”

― Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“I admired the way McCain worked on campaign finance reform. I admired the way Nancy Pelosi stiffened the Democrats’ spine during the health care debate. I admire the way Barack Obama has raised a dog in the White House without ever putting it on the roof of the car for a vacation drive.”

― Gail Collins

“Using a dog as a narrator has limitations and it has advantages. The limitations are that a dog cannot speak. A dog has no thumbs. A dog can’t communicate his thoughts except with gestures.”

― Garth Stein

“Our dog, Comet, is a Lab/poodle mix. She’s goofy and silly and sweet.”

― Garth Stein

“Anyone who has a dog knows that they have some very deep thoughts, that they have moods and emotions, they get their feelings hurt. It’s not a far reach to give them opinions and values and long-term desires.”

― Garth Stein

“I think the one that’s going to be the hardest to make into a film is the one that’s probably going to be made into a film, which is ‘The Art of Racing in the Rain.’ I mean, it’s narrated by a dog. How do you do that? But hopefully we’ll get to see.”

― Garth Stein

“If you come on my property, I’ve got you from the second that you enter on. There’s little lasers… my TVs come on in my room and fall just right on you. So, there’s no way to sneak up on me. And I’ve got a loud dog.”

― Gary Allan

“When Captain America is in a room full of Marvel superheroes, he is always Top Dog, even though his powers are pretty modest. He could be stood next to Thor, Iron Man, whoever. He is the one that everyone looks up to. To me, that is Superman, too. Even de-powered in the Legion arc, he was still Superman. Still Top Dog.”

― Gary Frank

“You’re never the same after you run the Iditarod, and I still lust to go out and run with dogs, even though I know that I shouldn’t. But I’d give just about anything to be able to do it again. To see the horizon again from the back of a dog team would be wonderful.”

― Gary Paulsen

“Okay, let’s talk about cartoon labels for half a second – some people think anything with a dog or a car or a colorful alien is garbage, which is not true. Look at Big Moose Red. It’s, like, a $6 wine with a cheesy label, and it’s actually a solid wine.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk

“The hero of the ‘Peanuts’ is Charlie Brown. I play the dog that sleeps on the top of his dog box who’s a philosopher. I’m drawn to that. So I’m drawn to Barbossa as I’m drawn to Einstein, because they are outsiders, and I suppose, as a character actor, that’s the turf that you’re locked into, in a way.”

― Geoffrey Rush

“Your cells are not working as hard as your dog’s but harder than your horse’s. The bigger the animal, the less energy needed to sustain a gram of tissue.”

― Geoffrey West

“A statesman who confines himself to popular legislation – or, for the matter of that, a playwright who confines himself to popular plays – is like a blind man’s dog who goes wherever the blind man pulls him, on the ground that both of them want to go to the same place.”

― George Bernard Shaw

“Youth will be served, every dog has his day, and mine has been a fine one.”

― George Eads

“After you work out, you have your dog with you. There’s no better companion. You’ve got to have a friend. I didn’t like opponents who had dogs with them. Because you know they had a little edge. They have a friend.”

― George Foreman

“As you get better and better working out, there’s no one who can keep up with you running. If you don’t have a good dog, it’s going to be the most lonesome training camp you’ll ever have.”

― George Foreman

“I’m never without my dog. They would be in every corner of the house, and my wife will not allow me to have any more than that. But I have lots of dogs. I love the dogs. I breed them. I always have a puppy coming. And I show dogs. I show German shepherds.”

― George Foreman

“You’ve got to keep a dog with you at all times. A dog cannot roam. You’ve got to keep him in the house with you. You can’t have a wild dog and expect days to go good.”

― George Foreman

“Love is the emotion that a woman feels always for a poodle dog and sometimes for a man.”

― George Jean Nathan

“There are writers, and I know some of them, who are very disciplined. Who write, like, four pages a day, every day. And it doesn’t matter if their dog got run over by a car that day, or they won the Irish sweepstakes. I’m not one of those writers.”

― George R. R. Martin

“Four years in the White House and two presidential campaigns is an awful long time. In politics, every year in the White House is like dog years, six years off your life.”

― George Stephanopoulos

“Did Superman really want to save the world, or did he just feel like he had to? Would he much rather be a farmer? Maybe. Would he much rather be hanging out with his dad and his mom and his dog? Probably.”

― Gerard Way

“We then went through the audition process and picked a guy named Richard Campbell and he is no secret to L.A. players as he was with Natalie Cole for years and Three Dog Night.”

― Giovanni Guareschi

“The dog that trots about finds a bone.”

― Golda Meir

“I have scars from every film I have made. There is nothing to protect actors. They treat you worse than a dog. You work like a slave, and you know, I like it. That is the way it should be. Every film should be like your last.”

― Golshifteh Farahani

“Dr. Dog is good summer music.”

― Grace Potter

“I’ve traveled all over. I’ve been to all 50 states. With my dad in the Navy, I lived in the Philippines from nine to 12, and I had dog, monkey, lizard, everything. Then I was in Hawaii, and I’m spear-fishing, catching octopus with my hands.”

― Graham Elliot

“Myself and some kids on our estate became obsessed with the creation of the ultimate go-kart. This ambition culminated in the creation of a six-man super-cart, which was essentially a plank of wood with four wheels, and a failed attempt to jump a tributary of the River Severn powered only by Rex, our dog.”

― Greg Davies

“Virtuality – connection without proximity – is a major attraction in both fandom and the Net. Nobody knows you’re a dog through the U.S. mail, either. Fans could be utterly different in their fanzine persona, which may be why both fandom and the Net were invented by individualistic Americans.”

― Gregory Benford

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”

― Groucho Marx

“I’m an absolute fan of 1970s New York in films like ‘Mean Streets’ and ‘Dog Day Afternoon.’”

― Guillaume Canet

“I read the Odyssey because it was the story of a man who returned home after being absent for more than twenty years and was recognized only by his dog.”

“You should be doing something for your body every day. One day it could be a high-intensity class, and the next, it could be as simple as a 20-minute walk with the dog.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“I remember when I was writing ‘The Tin Drum,’ I had the totally misguided idea of giving Oskar Matzerath a sister, and he just wouldn’t have it. There was no space for a sister, yet I had the character of the sister in my head. In fact I used her in later novels, in ‘Cat and Mouse’ and ‘Dog Years,’ Tulla Pokriski.”

― Gunter Grass

“There are so many animals in shelters that need homes. Rather than going to a breeder and buying a dog, or a puppy mill or anything like that, I’ve always been a big fan of adoption.”

― Gus Kenworthy

“My family’s dog, when I was growing up, was an adopted dog that I got in a shelter for my birthday. I’ve always felt really strongly about adopting animals and trying to save animals’ lives.”

― Gus Kenworthy

“You don’t want to be defined by one thing. But at the same point… When you are the first in something, that’s gonna kinda be the title that sticks. And after Sochi, I was, like, the dog guy. Now I’m the gay guy, and it’s fine by me.”

“Because I was newly pregnant, I was sick as a dog, yet I knew all my lines from a year before.”

“I remember the first 45 record I bought. It was called ‘A Dog a Donut’; it was a breakbeat. Actually, I think I bought two at one time, and the other one was ‘Dance to the Drummer’s Beat.’ Those are breakbeats. I paid a dollar for it, for each one. Your average producer or DJ would know who came out with those.”

― Gza

“A professor must have a theory as a dog must have fleas.”

― H. L. Mencken

“It is no compliment to be the stupidly idolised master of a dog whose instinct it is to idolise, but it is a very distinct tribute to be chosen as the friend and confidant of a philosophic cat who is wholly his own master and could easily choose another companion if he found such an one more agreeable and interesting.”

― H. P. Lovecraft

“A dog is a pitiful thing, depending wholly on companionship, and utterly lost except in packs or by the side of his master. Leave him alone, and he does not know what to do except bark and howl and trot about till sheer exhaustion forces him to sleep.”

― H. P. Lovecraft

“The cat is classic whilst the dog is Gothic – nowhere in the animal world can we discover such really Hellenic perfection of form, with anatomy adapted to function, as in the felidae.”

― H. P. Lovecraft

“We call ourselves a dog’s ‘master’ – but who ever dared to call himself the ‘master’ of a cat? We own a dog – he is with us as a slave and inferior because we wish him to be. But we entertain a cat – he adorns our hearth as a guest, fellow-lodger, and equal because he wishes to be there.”

― H. P. Lovecraft

“Throw a stick, and the servile dog wheezes and pants and shambles to bring it to you. Do the same before a cat, and he will eye you with coolly polite and somewhat bored amusement.”

― Honeysuckle Weeks

“The first time I went to Chicago was on a family road trip. We had our dog with us, and when we hit Chicago, I couldn’t believe how many people kept coming up to us, telling us how handsome our dog was!

“When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the ability to feel pain, hunger, and thirst, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”

― Ingrid Newkirk

“PETA’s campaign should be included in school curricula. If we can open children’s hearts and minds to animals’ needs, teach them to treat a dog or a chicken as if they feel fear and love and pain – as they do – then they will grow up to understand that we are all worthy of respect.”

― Ingrid Newkirk

“I don’t have the luxury of having a dog myself because I travel too much, but I love walking and cuddling somebody else’s dog.”

― Jaclyn Smith

“My view is quite simple. When your dog pees on the carpet, you do not give away your dog. You say, This dog is special. I have to teach him not to pee on the carpet. I feel exactly the same way about men. They need to be taught things.”

― Jane Siberry

“I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales – where some of my ancestors are from – and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons, and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!”

― Jane Siberry

“The raccoons, foxes, beavers, chinchillas, minks, rabbits, and yes, sometimes even dogs and cats that are killed for fur are not very different from your beloved dog or cat. They all have eyes, ears and hearts. They all experience pain when they are physically maimed. They shake with fear when they experience terror.”

― Jane Velez-Mitchell

“I love that there are beaches you can walk your dog on in San Francisco. Fort Funston is big and always packed with hundreds of dogs and their people. A great place to hike and get some exercise and fresh air with your well-mannered pup. Not recommended for antisocial dogs; there’s just too much commotion there.”

― Jane Wiedlin

“I have two pets – a dog and a cat.”

― Janet Varney

“I was a dog groomer. I delivered radiators; I was a photography producer. I typed classified ads for many years. It was my longest term job – years of typing classified ads while I was in bands.”

“It’s not like I’m hanging out at shopping malls or going to celebrity golf tournaments. I’m so in my own little world. I got my dog, my music, my brother, a couple of friends.”

― Jared Leto

“Words are important to me, but a song can work and function and be a good song with words that are fairly standard. But really great lyrics can’t rescue a dog of a song.”

― Jarvis Cocker

“Dogs are more of a responsibility than kids – you can send a kid off to their grandparents or a nanny, but with a dog you can’t do that.”

― Jason Gann

“As far as writing, I like watching bad movies. Nothing stops me in my tracks more than watching a great film like ‘The Godfather’ or ‘Dog Day Afternoon’ or ‘The Graduate.’ You watch one of those, and you never want to write again. Whereas with bad movies, it makes you think, If that counts, I certainly could write.”

― Jason Reitman

“My Chinese zodiac is a dog. But I’m an exception because of how much I love cats.”

― Jason Wu

― Jayne Meadows

“It was actually quite easy to work with Uggie, because he’s a really well trained dog. Very talented. I just had to follow him a little bit, improvise a little bit. Sometimes he’d follow me. Especially because of the sausages I had in my pocket.”

― Jean Dujardin

“I watched Gene Kelly for his smile, for his energy. Vittorio Gassman for his movement. Clark Gable for his mustache. And I watched Lassie who was happy as a dog.”

― Jean Dujardin

“I can’t speak American dog very well. There was a lot of improvisation with Uggie – like when I put the dog on the table or sometimes I follow him, sometimes he follows me. I had a lot of treats in my pocket. We worked with Omar Von Muller, the dog trainer. It was very easy because it was a big movie.”

― Jean Dujardin

“A mutt is a dog. He is the stuff of dogginess, a creature allied to species, not breed, and untrammeled by human hand or preference.”

― Jean Hanff Korelitz

“My dog is vicious to the uninvited guest, lavishly affectionate to the invited one, and so freakishly acute that he has mastered the English language.”

― Jean Hanff Korelitz

“The implication of AKC registration is that a dog who has it is better than a dog who hasn’t.”

― Jean Hanff Korelitz

“Most of all, I am struck by an irony central to the lot of a purebred dog: As it attains the hallmarks of its breed, it seems to simultaneously relinquish its basic dogginess, until it is less a dog than a Pomeranian, Collie or Bloodhound.”

― Jean Hanff Korelitz

“Sensitivity isn’t being wimpy. It’s about being so painfully aware that a flea landing on a dog is like a sonic boom. I enjoy a lot of mystery.”

― Jeff Buckley

“We just got a tour bus. I didn’t know tour buses could be this nice. It’s just me, Brian Haner the guitar guy, the tour manager and a writer. We laugh ourselves silly. Apparently we’re going to have a road dog, a miniature pincher. It’s the smallest they’ve ever seen. How masculine am I going to look, working with dolls and a miniature dog?”

― Jeff Dunham

“You gotta love Rick Perry’s swagger. The Texas Governor is out there in the Iowa cornfields, unabashedly going to toe-to-toe with President Obama, doing his best to instantly cast himself as the big dog in the Republican pack.”

― Jeff Goodell

“I remember once I had lunch with George W Bush, his father, and Condoleezza Rice. Then I went home to find my dog and my neighbour’s dog fighting over a dead rabbit, and I had to separate them. I like that my home life keeps things real.”

― Jeff Kinney

“My friend created an iPhone app that locates Vienna Beef products across the country. Personally, I came hardwired with an internal GPS that instinctively points me toward coffee shops, cupcake stores and the perfect Chicago-style dog, so I find this technology redundant.”

― Jen Lancaster

“If you’d rather spend the holidays with your friends or your dog or digging wells in Kenya than with your family, do it.”

“I always fall for the guy that, like, has to blow me off because he needs to go do something with his dog. I love those kind of guys.”

― Jennifer Granholm

“I have got pictures all around the rooms I sit in. I have got a very mad picture of a dog standing on a black thing on a piece of rope. It was drawn and painted by a Romanian poet who was under house arrest, and it is terrific.”

― Jennifer Johnston

“You have to be very insensitive in order to have a cat, because I think they’re very independent. When they’re kittens, you think they’re going to have a dog temperament in that they’re going to run to the door when you get home, lick you on the face and cuddle with you all the time, but cats are not that way.”

― Jennifer Love Hewitt

“I like cats. I used to have a lot of cats, but I don’t anymore, now I just have a dog. It does take a certain temperament to have a cat, as they do have certain personalities.”

― Jennifer Love Hewitt

“I remember thinking, ‘Downward dog’ is so not a resting pose!’ Now it actually can be.”

― Jennifer Nettles

“When I left for college, my mom really latched on to the dog; She started buying him little outfits and calling him our brother, but that’s as far as it got.”

― Jennine Capó Crucet

“’Hound Dog’ took like twelve minutes. That’s not a complicated piece of work. But the rhyme scheme was difficult. Also the metric structure of the music was not easy. ‘Kansas City’ was maybe eight minutes, if that. Writing the early blues was spontaneous. You can hear the energy in the work.”

― Jerry Leiber

“I think my fans would probably be surprised to know I’m not insane – I’m not a crazy person in real life. I’m a pretty low-key dude. I like chilling at home and playing with my dog.”

― Jiang Qing

“If we could establish a deep abiding relationship with nature, we would never kill an animal for our appetite; we would never harm, vivisect, a monkey, a dog, a guinea pig for our benefit. We would find other ways to heal our wounds, heal our bodies.”

― Jiddu Krishnamurti

“You know, a dog can snap you out of any kind of bad mood that you’re in faster than you can think of.”

“People often assume New York City is no place to keep a dog. This is certainly what my parents told me when I was growing up there. But I have found this not to be the case at all.”

― Jill Abramson

“I’m a huge dog nut – giant, giant.”

― Jill Abramson

“If I wash my hair in the morning, then I usually air-dry it. In warmer weather, if I walk my dog, by the time I am back in, it is usually nice and dry!”

“I find television to be a bit like a meat grinder. It’s like, you have a cow, you put it through a meat grinder, and out comes a hot dog. It’s almost unrecognizable.”

“Even the smallest dog can lift its leg on the tallest building.”

― Jim Hightower

“One of my obsession is animals. I’m into dog rescues. It drives me crazy when people go to pet stores and buy dogs. There are so many dogs that need a good home. And this sounds crazy, but I really believe they know what is happening and are appreciative, and I just think they make for the best pets.”

― Jim O’Heir

“Sometimes you don’t have great days. You’re going to have ups, and you’re going to have downs. And when you have the downs, it’s awesome to be able to come home to a wife that’s extremely supportive and a dog that loves you no matter what.”

― Jimmer Fredette

“As far as creating my own theme park, it would probably just have to do with things I like, like my dog and other people’s dogs, and lots of dogs and cats.”

― Jimmi Simpson

“I think the idea that death is not the end, that your dog’s just gone to live on the farm, is limiting. Thoughts like that prevent you from making the most of the time that you have.”

― Jimmy Graham

“When there’s something I need to focus on, I’m like a dog with a bone.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“My pug dog, Princess , is something else; she’s my baby. I’ve had her for about 14 and a half years. They usually don’t live any longer than 15, but I don’t believe that. As long as you treat them right, they will live a long time.”

― Jimmy Scott

“My obstetrician was so dumb that when I gave birth he forgot to cut the cord. For a year that kid followed me everywhere. It was like having a dog on a leash.”

― Joan Rivers

“A lot of us are ruled by fear during our lives – afraid we’ll get burgled, afraid a dog will bite us, afraid we’ll get fat, afraid someone will leave us. Once you lose fear, life becomes sweeter, and that happens as you get older. I’m sure by the time I’m 80, I’ll be able to do absolutely anything!”

― Joanna Lumley

“I’ve always been a sucker for a dog called an Alaskan Malamute. It’s like a little husky… my dad had one when he was younger.”

“I’m a small dog guy. I don’t want to be pattin’ with the big Rottweiler or Great Dane. I like those little guys that jump on your lap and don’t knock you over when they do.”

― Joe Garagiola

“Dog-fooding is using your own products so that you understand from inside out what it is you’re providing the customers. It’s another way to gain insights and to gain intelligence. You use it yourself; you eat your own dog food. Every time we do that, we discover something that we can improve.”

― Joe Gebbia

“I got a pit bull from a shelter, so my whole life is centered on this dog, and I’ve been writing a lot of dog jokes. I should probably give up now, because I’m writing jokes about my dog.”

“Honestly, I am in love with my dog.”

― Johanna Konta

“The human imagination… has great difficulty in living strictly within the confines of a materialist practice or philosophy. It dreams, like a dog in its basket, of hares in the open.”

― John Berger

“The dog is often quick to resent a kick, be it from man or beast, but I have never known him to show anger at the door that slammed to and hit him. Probably, if the door held him by his tail or his limb, it would quickly receive the imprint of his teeth.”

― John Burroughs

“If you react to every barking dog, if you stop for every barking dog, you’re never getting home.”

― John Calipari

“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God’s truth is attacked and yet would remain silent.”

― John Calvin

“I don’t have a pet, but I dream of someday getting a pug dog whom I will name Croque Monsieur so that I may alternate between calling him Croque, Monsieur or his full name: Croque Monsieur. I’ll more than likely only use his first and last name most often when he’s been bad.”

― John Gallagher, Jr.

“A dog is the greatest gift a parent can give a child. OK, a good education, then a dog.”

“Who gets the bird, the hunter or the dog?”

― John Lewis

“I’ve had encounters with animals that have been really mystical. I’ve always been really into animals. But the way they appear in the paintings, they come from my mind’s eye more than: ‘I’m gonna draw a dog now.’ It isn’t thought out: ‘Now I’m gonna draw a bird.’ They just appear.”

― John Lurie

“I’m no one’s lap dog, you can’t put me on a leash.”

― John Lydon

“I’m a dog person, I’ve had dogs all my life. But you see, it’s not really a dog. It’s more like a little robot. It’s an actor. It displays no emotion whatsoever. I swear that dog doesn’t know any of us even though we’ve done five seasons of Frasier.”

― John Mahoney

“I’m a dog person; I’ve had dogs all my life.”

― John Mahoney

“A dog that has rabies probably will do things it wouldn’t do if it didn’t have rabies. But that doesn’t change the fact that it has rabies.”

― John Malkovich

“I have occasionally – if ever I do interviews that are difficult or nerve-wracking – I take my wife’s dog tags and have them in my pocket because it’s a very quick way to realize that what I’m doing is not that important. It’s not really worth getting stressed about because it’s not, you know, war.”

― John Oliver

“Vice presidents are at times tasked with issuing direct broadsides against enemies while the top guy stays above the fray. But never before has a vice president served as an attack dog against his own party’s voters.”

― John Pomfret

“I’d rather get a hot dog or a doughnut than write a song.”

― John Prine

“I like animals. I like people who like animals. I hate people who love animals to the point they lose their sense of reason. I’m talking the ‘my computer wallpaper is my dog,’ ‘I hang a Christmas stocking for my cat’ crowd.”

― John Ridley

“I may have grown cynical from long service, but this is a tendency I do not like, and I sometimes think I’d rather be a dog and bay at the moon than stay in the Senate another six years and listen to it.”

“A lot of films need planning in order to survive at all. It’s part of the dog and pony show.”

― John Turturro

“My dog doesn’t worry about the meaning of life. She may worry if she doesn’t get her breakfast, but she doesn’t sit around worrying about whether she will get fulfilled or liberated or enlightened. As long as she gets some food and a little affection, her life is fine.”

― Joko Beck

“When I was working at Sony, I used to live near the beach. I’d get up in the morning, walk my dog, go for a swim with dolphins, and in 25 minutes I would be at Sony.”

― Jon Feltheimer

“I’m a big dog fan. They’re the best. They make life better, although they’re hard to deal with. But complications in life are actually what make it fun.”

― Jon Hamm

“Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.”

― Jon Katz

“Bites are usually not random attacks by strays. The great majority of biting dogs belong to a family member or friend of the victim. When a young child is the victim, the attack almost always occurs in the family home, and the perpetrator is usually a ‘good’ dog that had not previously behaved in a menacing way.”

― Jon Katz

“Owners who buy aggressive dogs for security may be kidding themselves: The chances that the victim of a fatal dog attack will be a burglar or human attacker are 1-in-177. The odds that the victim will be a child are 7-in-10.”

― Jon Katz

“The Perfect Dog is an enticing fantasy pooch. It’s the dog that instantly learns to pee outdoors, never menaces or frightens children, plays gently with other dogs, won’t jump on the UPS guy, never rolls in gross things, eats only the appropriate food at the right time, and never chews anything not meant for him. This dog does not exist.”

― Jon Katz

“I’m always happy when people choose to get another dog because it’s a healthy and healing thing to do, and there are millions of them needing homes. But there is no single time frame to do it in because grieving is an intensely personal experience.”

― Jon Katz

“It’s natural canine behavior to chew on all sorts of things, roll in other animals’ droppings, hump and fight other dogs, menace anything that invades the home. All these behaviors can be curbed, but that takes a lot of work. Trainers say it requires nearly 2,000 repetitions of a behavior for a dog to completely absorb it.”

― Jon Katz

“It’s easy to see why dog rescue is a mushrooming culture. Turning a troubled person’s life around is difficult, but rescuers with commitment and time and a few dollars can radically alter the fate of a dog. And there are millions of dogs – nearly 10 million in the shelter system, many others mistreated in private homes – in need of rescuing.”

― Jon Katz

“I’m one of those people who has always struggled with emotions and revealing them. When my dog Orson died, I did this very male thing of ‘It’s just a dog and I’ll just move on.’ I was very slow to grasp the emotion. But Orson is the reason I started writing about dogs.”

― Jon Katz

“If you’re going to love animals and have a life with them, the odds are you’re going to lose them. It’s helpful when you get a dog to accept the fact that this dog is not going to be with you your whole life.”

― Jon Katz

“My beloved dog defied treatment from the best and most expensive veterinarians, holistic practitioners, trainers, and animal communicators. He was simply beyond my ability to repair or control.”

― Jon Katz

“Personally, I don’t want to own a dog that inspires fear. I choose my dogs carefully, have their temperaments observed and evaluated, train and socialize them day after day. Yet I know any dog can be unpredictable.”

― Jon Katz

“When people buy, rescue, or otherwise acquire a dog from unscrupulous breeders or amateur rescue groups, they are making a decision with ethical consequences. They have a profound responsibility to consider their actions; to gauge the dog’s behavior, to train it thoroughly and rigorously, to protect other humans and dogs from harm.”

― Jon Katz

“Most Americans acquire dogs impulsively and for dubious reasons: as a Christmas gift for the kids. Because they saw one in a movie. To match the new living-room furniture. Because they moved to the suburbs and see a dog as part of the package.”

― Jon Katz

“Dog rescue remains a gamble, of course. For all the good will, hard work, and noble motivation, nobody can really predict with certainty how a traumatized, dislocated dog will respond in a new environment.”

― Jon Katz

“My dog, he’s a great dog.”

― Jon Keyser

“I don’t think the Bonzo Dog could have evolved in America, nor could the old Nice: because of their musical discipline. This is one thing that British groups do have, a sort of discipline. Sometimes it can get a bit soulless, but on the whole I think it’s preferable to the American alternative.”

― Jon Lord

“When you’re single, you’re not beholden to anyone, and you can shut down more easily. In the past, I had the idea that I’d live in a caravan with a dog near a pub with no responsibilities. But now, when bad things happen in the world, I feel responsible for them because they’re going to impact on my daughter.”

― Jon Richardson

“When I read the ‘Dick and Jane’ stories, I thought they were afraid they might forget each other’s names because they always said each other’s names – a lot. So if Jane didn’t see the dog, Dick would say, ‘Look Jane, look. There is the dog next to Sally, Jane. The dog is also next to mother, Jane. The dog is next to father, Jane.’”

― Jon Scieszka

“I always loved strange stories like the Dr. Seuss stuff. ‘Go, Dog. Go!’ was one of my favorite stories – it still is. It’s just such a bizarre yet true book. And I did well reading and writing as a kid throughout school. I think early on that’s what made me realize what an advantage that is.”

― Jon Scieszka

“I like to tell kids that I started thinking about stories when I first started reading stuff like Dr. Seuss and ‘Go, Dog. Go!,’ thinking, ‘Oh yeah, that’s funny. I’d like to do that.’ And then writing throughout school, but at the same time I was studying pre-med stuff, because my mom told me I should be a doctor.”

― Jon Scieszka

“There’s nothing very exotic about classic Chilean street food. Imagine a hot dog hidden beneath an explosion of mayonnaise and ketchup. Cost? Twenty-five to 30 pence. This is the completo, an all-purpose solution to breakfast, lunch or, once, the curiously English teatime snack enjoyed by Chileans of all ages.”

― Jonathan Franklin

“Fortunately, this is not something that we see a lot of. Very rarely do you see a dog in this terrible shape from starvation. People just aren’t that cruel.”

― Jonathan Ross

“Why does watching a dog be a dog fill one with happiness?”

― Jonathan Safran Foer

“Every factory-farmed animal is, as a practice, treated in ways that would be illegal if it were a dog or a cat.”

“I am an on-and-off vegetarian. Sometimes on, mostly off. I think it is better to be a vegetarian but occasionally, the call of the hot dog overpowers my ethics.”

― Jonathan Safran Foer

“Every dog must have his day.”

― Jonathan Swift

“At the beginning of ‘Solo,’ Chewbacca is a stray dog from the streets who has been beaten. He is very guarded and not trusting of the outside world. When the situation arises, he calls upon the powers he has and can do amazing things.”

― Joonas Suotamo

“Sometimes animal exercises can help you get in touch with parts of yourself that you don’t access day to day. In my day-to-day physicality, I’m a little bit like a terrier. I’ve always been described as a dog. I’m kind of goofy and a little dopey looking sometimes.”

― Jordan Gavaris

“I’m perfectly happy doing nothing. I’ll hang around the house and take the dog to the park.”

― Jorge Garcia

“Sometimes I observe stuff I haven’t been through and write about it. I used to walk my dog with these 50-year-olds, and they’d tell me stories I could use.”

― Jorja Smith

“Our brain, our body, craves fat. We cannot help it. That’s why a kid will eat a hot dog quicker than a piece of broccoli.”

“I usually think to do pep talks on Twitter if I’m on the road, at home and my girlfriend is out of town, or if I’m at home and up later then my girlfriend and our dog Bizzy – like, if they’re both asleep but I’m kind of wired.”

― Josh Gondelman

― Juan Pablo Montoya

“My wonderful editor, Jackie Onassis, asked me to write a book that I wanted to write. I said, ‘Look, it’s not going to be scandalized. I’m not going to talk about anybody like a dog. I’m going to say the positiveness of my life, and talk about those who have contributed to the way I’ve been going, and that’s that.’”

― Judith Jamison

“I have a few customers who have two or three hundred bags. When you see a lady carrying a little dog bag or a little cat bag or an egg, it makes you happy.”

“Puerto Rico has a stray dog problem. Tens of thousands of homeless canines – hundreds of thousands, by some estimates – live and die on the streets and beaches all over this Caribbean island of almost four million people.”

― Juliana Hatfield

“I have a very, very normal life. I really do – with the exception of being very lucky and privileged. I have two children, a dog, and a husband. We live in New York, the kids go to school, and we’re fortunate that we have flexible schedules. I like that. That’s what I want.”

― Julianne Moore

“It’s hard to keep the romance going sometimes. Because you have a job. And you have children. And you have a house and a dog. And something leaks in the basement, and somebody has to take the dog to the vet… you’re exhausted.”

“Every dog has his day, unless he loses his tail, then he has a weak-end.”

― June Carter Cash

“I write incredibly slowly. And, on top of that, I spent my entire youth and twenties working like a dog, so one of the things that happened when I finished ‘Drown’ was that I got busy living. I’d never travelled, I’d never seen anything. So I did as much travelling as my job teaching would allow.”

― Junot Diaz

“I’m a dog lover. With the holidays, everything gets a little bit hectic. There’s a lot on your mind, and maybe you forget that your animals also feel that stress as well. So try to keep them on the same routine; try to keep the chocolate out of their mouth.”

― Justin Hartley

“Had a dog. I had many. I grew up in rural Washington before I moved to the Twin Cities in Minnesota, and my first dog was – his name first was Bear, but then it changed to Big, and he sort of looked like Old Yeller. And then we also had a three-legged dog named Foxy, who we found because her leg was in a trap.”

― Justin Kirk

“If entertainment years were dog years, man, I’d be like Gandhi. I’d be, like, 250 years old.”

― Justin Timberlake

“In films, I didn’t crave the type of attention I had sort of stumbled into in my music career. And I do not audition well. I’m really not good at it. Early on, I did movies like ‘Alpha Dog’ and ‘Black Snake Moan’ because the directors didn’t ask me to audition.”

― Justin Timberlake

“It’s nice coming to Nashville, and we have four-bedroom house and a dog, and we go swimming a lot. We get down here and spread out a lot, and I miss my sweet tea and my cornbread and my good southern cooking – but I’m down here eating pretty for two weeks and I’m ready to go back to New York City.”

― Justin Townes Earle

“Stan is a rescue Chihuahua mix. He was the role model for Bob, the dog in ‘Ivan.’ The drawings in the book look precisely like Stan.”

“I don’t really go to clubs anymore. I’m actually quite settled. Living in Highgate with my dog and my husband and my daughter! I’m not a hell-raiser. But don’t burst the bubble. Behind closed doors, for sure, I’m a hell-raiser.”

― Kate Moss

“I do Pilates, and hike with my dog.”

― Kate Walsh

“Opposition to abortion was one of the ways the Christian right was brought into the Republican Party by conservatives hoping to move the party further right. Now, of course, the tail is wagging the dog.”

― Katha Pollitt

“Not to rag on myself, but when people say, ‘What does it feel like to be an icon?’ I’m like, ‘My dog does not think I’m an icon, my cat does not think I am an icon, my cousin does not think I am an icon.’ I have a really lovely group of friends, and I just don’t think about it.”

“I’ve had my wife traveling with me full time for four or five years, which has been huge for me, and we have our dog traveling with me as well, which I think is a really important part. We do travel so much, and we’re away from home so often, it makes it feel like it’s home a little bit, too.”

― Kevin Anderson

“I got a dog with a Napoleon complex. I have a Napoleon complex. We’re small. Anything big that we feel is threatening us, we want to fight. We’re not a pushover.”

― Kevin Hart

“It kind of sucks when you lose a dog; you don’t realize how attached to them you are until they are gone.”

― Kevin Harvick

“I’ve done movies that I’ve been advised not to do. ‘Dog Soldiers,’ the movie I did 11 years ago now, I remember my agent at the time was like, ‘You shouldn’t do that. It’s a weird film about werewolves,’ and it became a cult hit.”

― Kevin McKidd

“If you want a friend, buy a dog.”

“I only really like to watch things like ‘Time Team.’ I’d rather be out walking the dog. It’s all reality TV, which, as an actor, I detest.”

― Kevin Whately

“When you’re in elected office, you always have to operate under the assumption that you’re in a dog fight for re-election. It’s when you don’t prepare for a tough battle, when you’re caught flat-footed, that you’re vulnerable.”

― Kevin Yoder

“We had moved cross-country from upstate New York to Kansas in the heat wave of 1980, with two cars, no air-conditioning, and a black dog. I can still see the infernal temperature of a hundred and nineteen degrees on a bank sign somewhere near Ohio.”

“I had a really traumatizing experience growing up. When I was, like, 10 or 11, I was vegan. I’m not anymore, but I was, and I went to this hot dog place because I heard they had a veggie dog. I took a bite, and literally – I kid you not – it was a carrot in a bun. Horrifying.”

― Kiernan Shipka

“I’ve always said money may buy you a fine dog, but only love can make it wag its tail.”

― Kinky Friedman

“In India, if you are from the elite, dogs are extremely important. The breed of the dog indicates your wealth, that you are westernized. The cook, another human being, is on a much lower level than your dog. You see this all the time.”

“On the farm, I had chores. I had a calf. We had a herd of cattle in the pasture. We’d go and get me a calf at a cow auction with Amish people, which I would raise. I gave it a bottle every day, in this cute little coop, like a giant dog coop almost. I’ve always been a big animal person.”

“My Instagram is basically all knitting, my dog, and a little bit of ‘The Defenders.’”

― Krysten Ritter

“I have this rule. It’s called ‘Top Dog-Underdog:’ Underdog gets to make fun of Top Dog, but Top Dog can’t make fun of Underdog. But you know what? You get Top Dog, you get to be Top Dog. Congratulations! And that dynamic happens not just in race but in many different ways. It’s like the male-female dynamic.”

― Larry Wilmore

“Every weekday morning, I picture my first paragraph while I hike with my dog Milo near Mulholland Drive, looking out over the San Fernando Valley. I edit the paragraph, then memorize it, so that when I get back home and sit down at my computer, the blank screen’s tyranny lasts only a second or two. A brief reign!”

― Lee Radziwill

“My father, naturally, spoiled me when I was allowed to see him – flying to New York from Washington, alone, in those terrifying planes.

“Growing up, my uncle used to always have dogs, and we always had a dog growing up. I couldn’t remember a time when I never had a dog. It was part of the family. So once I actually got old enough, I got a dog in college, then I felt he needed a friend, so I got another dog. They just started adding up from there.”

― Le’Veon Bell

“You call to a dog and a dog will break its neck to get to you. Dogs just want to please. Call to a cat and its attitude is, ‘What’s in it for me?’”

“When I started writing songs at 18, I wrote about 100 that were crap. One was called ‘Dog In A Disco.’”

― Limahl

“People always joke that ‘dog’ spells ‘god’ backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.”

“I would say there is probably a little bit of me in each character. But Purrscilla is a lot like me because she is very into glam and glitz and jewelry and everything very girly. And some of the jewelry in the illustration is even my own jewelry. But I’m not a cat fan – that’s the only thing! I’m a dog person.”

― Lisa Jakub

“My thing has always been, I’ve never been very open and vulnerable with people, so the minute I got this dog, everything changed. It just opened me up and made me more loving… It’s all because of him… He’s made me a better person… I can tell people what I feel now. I can cry in front of people sometimes.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“The dog lasted. The marriage didn’t. So it shows which relationship was meant to be.”

“I wasn’t ready to be a dog’s mother! Trust me, I’m completely unfit and irresponsible. I’m a comic that travels 48 weeks a year, but I make it work, so you can, too.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“Perhaps one reason we are fascinated by cats is because such a small animal can contain so much independence, dignity, and freedom of spirit. Unlike the dog, the cat’s personality is never bet on a human’s. He demands acceptance on his own terms.”

“Maybe bitcoin is a kind of a bubble. I don’t like it. I’m not comfortable with it. I’m kind of an old dog to be absorbing that kind of a new trick.”

“The poor dog, in life the firmest friend. The first to welcome, foremost to defend.”

― Lord Byron

“Don’t buy furs: that’s No. 1. You can start with that. Then spay and neuter your pets. We destroy millions of them a year. Go to an animal shelter for a cat or dog. And read a book about how to care properly for your particular pet.”

― Loretta Swit

“I think any critic that takes a swipe at ‘Full House’ is like taking the family dog. The dog brings you joy and happiness and makes you forget your problems, and that’s all ‘Full House’ does. Literally, taking a potshot at that show is like taking the family dog.”

“The dog lives here, Pete. You’re just visiting.”

― Marge Schott

“I never thought it was fair that women couldn’t travel freely because it was dangerous. I’d stay by myself on the North Carolina coast for a couple of weeks, with my dog and my gun, and my mom would be terrified. I told her, if I stay home, a lamp could fall on my head. You can’t spend your whole life inside because you’re scared.”

― Margo Price

― Marie Corelli

“When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It’s not only that they’re usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view – I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping.”

― Mark Barrowcliffe

“A dog doesn’t care if you’re tired or it’s raining. It wants to go out – and if it doesn’t go out, it’s going to be mournfully following you around the house for the whole evening.”

― Mark Barrowcliffe

“With a rescue dog, you take what’s at the centre as long as it roughly fits the bill. When you buy a dog from a breeder, you can choose everything from its personality to how shiny its coat is.”

“Not wishing to blow my own trumpet, I’m as near to being the perfect dog owner as it is possible to be.”

― Mark Barrowcliffe

“I spend a lot of time just, you know, with my girlfriend and my dog. And I mean, we don’t have a lot of furniture in our house, so it’s really simple. And we’re trying to build products for everyone in the world, right. And you don’t want to get isolated to do that.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“In my class – in all fifth-grade classes – we were required to read ‘classics,’ books like ‘Shiloh,’ which is about a white boy and the dog he rescues. And ‘Old Yeller,’ which is about a white boy and the dog that rescues him. And ‘Where the Red Fern Grows,’ which is about a white boy and the two dogs he trains.”

― Marley Dias

“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born.”

― Mary Oliver

“Science is you! It’s your head, it’s your dog, it’s your iPhone – it’s the world. How do you see that as boring? If it’s boring, it’s because you’re learning it from a textbook.”

― Mary Roach

“Back in high school, I wrote a novel about a character named Bart Simpson. I thought it was a very unusual name for a kid at the time. I had this idea of an angry father yelling ‘Bart,’ and Bart sounds kind of like bark – like a barking dog.”

“A typical day in my writing life starts with looking at pictures of real estate online for at least 20 minutes. If I happen to be actually in the market for a house, I do this for 40 minutes. Then I walk my dog, come back home, and tell myself I can look at real estate for another five minutes.”

― Meghan Daum

“In truth, I’m not really a cat person. Seamus, the wonder dog, still deeply mourned by all who knew him, was just about the only pet I’ve ever really loved.”

― Michael Dirda

“I knew Snoop Dog didn’t start misogyny. I knew that Tupac Shakur didn’t start sexism, and God knows that Dr. Dre didn’t start patriarchy. Yet they extended it in vicious form within their own communities. They made vulnerable people more vulnerable.”

― Michael J. Fox

“I use Facebook, but I find that I’m… if I put up a picture of my dog there or a sunset or something, I get a million hits. If I mention anything to do with my career, three people respond. And/or if I say anything political, I have to duck afterwards. I try to be selective.”

― Michael McDonald

“We should be licensing everybody with a gun. I have to have a license for my dog. I have to have a license for my car. If you’re going to do my hair later you have to have a license… We don’t require a license to own a firearm?”

― Michael Showalter

“Yeah, you got the family dog and the white picket fence, and you just think that’s all there is. Some of us had to grow up in poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods, and we just had to adapt to our environment. I know that it’s wrong. But people act like it’s some crazy thing they never heard of. They don’t know.”

― Michael Vick

“People will sooner aid a sick dog lying on the sidewalk than to try to find shelter for a sick person. It’s too much to deal with.”

― Miriam Toews

“My campaign is about getting pets to be more active, and exercise with your animal is a great way for people to exercise. When you’re out with your pet, it becomes fun. You don’t think of it as a chore. For me, taking my dog out for a walk is very relaxing.”

“If anyone has seen the horrific and unwatchable footage of the Chinese cat and dog trade – animals skinned alive – then they could not possibly argue in favour of China as a caring nation. There are no animal protection laws in China and this results in the worst animal abuse and cruelty on the planet. It is indefensible.”

― Morrissey

“Readers want to visualize your story as they read it. The more exact words you give them, the more clearly they see it, smell it, hear it, taste it. Thus, a dog should be an ‘Airedale,’ not just a ‘dog.’ A taste should not be merely ‘good’ but ‘creamy and sweet’ or ‘sharply salty’ or ‘buttery on the tongue.’”

― Nancy Kress

“My parents gave me a boxer puppy as a present. I have wanted a dog for years and must first give her attention in the morning.”

― Natalie Martinez

“When I made dog sweaters, as goofy as that was, I made this product, and people could buy it, and I got money immediately. Music was just this ethereal land of maybe, a lot of waiting and waiting. You live your life around hoping you get a five-thousand-dollar royalty check that usually doesn’t come.”

― Natalie Prass

“There came a point when I was thinking, ‘I’m now 26, 27, working on music every day, but I’m not making, like, a lot of money. What’s happening? I guess I’ll just start making dog clothes.’”

― Natasha Lyonne

“All Plutophiles are based in America. If you go to other countries, they have much less of an attachment to either the existence or preservation of Pluto as a planet. Once you investigate that, you find out that Disney’s dog Pluto was sketched the same year the cosmic object was discovered. And Pluto was discovered by an American.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“It was a real hand-to-mouth existence in those early days – I’d have whatever dry cereal there was in the house for breakfast, 30 cents to spend on lunch and a hot dog for dinner. I did that for years. So there was definitely a hunger in me, of various kinds, to succeed.”

― Neil Diamond

“I set out to do a horror film with ‘Dog Soldiers,’ and what I came out with at the end of the day was something that was more of a cult movie, more of a black comedy with some horror elements in it. It kind of went over the top.”

― Neil Marshall

“I was a film editor for eight years before I made my first feature, ‘Dog Soldiers.’ I am from Newcastle upon Tyne, in the northeast of England.”

― Neil Marshall

― Nell Scovell

“A teacher asked me if I’d audition for a play, and I ended up playing the pirate Red Dog in a production of ‘Treasure Island.’ And that’s where it started, and I really felt part of something special, but I still didn’t think about it as something I wanted to do. I was just having fun.”

― Nick Gehlfuss

“Gromit was the name of a cat. When I started modeling the cat I just didn’t feel it was quite right, so I made it into a dog because he could have a bigger nose and bigger, longer legs.”

― Nick Park

“I always thought that the fastest way for me to get ahead and get noticed and to do well was to make my act very accessible. When I first started, I talked about family stuff, my dog, my cat. It was all I knew back then; I wasn’t forcing anything, but I wasn’t like, ‘Hey, don’t you hate doing homework?’”

― Nick Swardson

“Outside of white button-down oord cloth shirts, Trickers brogues, 501s, and Ray-Ban Aviators, the single item of clothing that I have had in my closet consistently since 1982 is a pair of black-and-white checked Vans. They are the lazy man’s shoe – perfect for dog walking and security lines at the airport.”

― Nick Wooster

“I just got a new dog, so I was worried that he’d hate the fireworks, and he did, but just because he’s not a patriot, not because of the loud sounds. The loud sounds he’s fine with – he just hates America.”

― Nikki Glaser

“It’s interesting. People go to an animal shelter and pick a dog that’s been kicked, beaten, and has lost a leg and an eye, and they’ll take that dog home and give it love and support, but they don’t do that with people.”

“When I became a producer, I told myself I will finally be able to bring my dog to work.”

― Nina Jacobson

“I was part of a writers’ collective with 21 writers and filmmakers called the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. We had our own office space in this old converted dog and cat hospital, and we had a basketball hoop outside. I’d bring my dog to work every day and write.”

― Noah Hawley

“I would feel no hesitation in saying that it is the responsibility of a decent human being to give assistance to a child who is being attacked by a rabid dog, but I would not intend this to imply that in all imaginable circumstances one must, necessarily, act in accordance with this general responsibility.”

― Noam Chomsky

“Sushi is something very exclusive. It is not like a McDonald’s, not like a hot dog, not like a French fry. It’s very high-class cooking in Japan.”

― Nobu Matsuhisa

“Because Naughty Dog relies on their facial team to hand animate the faces of each game character and they do such a remarkable job, I think you can be more realistic with your acting. It gives the story and what’s happening to you the feeling that it’s a game.”

― Nolan North

“One thing that’s unique to ‘Uncharted’ is something called ‘chasing picture,’ where Naughty Dog run a section of gameplay and I’m allowed to ad-lib over it. We call it ‘panning for gold.’”

― Nolan North

“I got my Actors’ Equity card officially by playing Nana the dog in ‘Peter Pan’ at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. That was the first show I did as a full-fledged, dues-paying member; I earned points in my MFA program, then went into the company after I graduated.”

― Norman Wisdom

“Right before ‘ANTM,’ I was offered a recurring role for the TV show ‘Switched at Birth.’ I had to pick one because both of the shows were happening at the same time. I couldn’t choose, though, so decided to let my dog Foxy decide. She picked ‘ANTM!’”

― Nyle DiMarco

“When I was between 2 and 3 years old, I got to know my first non-human being. The non-human was a cocker spaniel named Baba. We weren’t friends, Baba and I, nor enemies. He wasn’t my dog. He belonged to the people my mother worked for, and he lived in the house with them and us.”

― Oskar Schindler

“I love working in Canada. The ovation is great. It makes me feel like I’m the top dog.”

“They are just really stupid people in Hollywood. You write them a script, and they say they love it, they absolutely love it. Then they say, ‘But doesn’t it need a small dog, and an Eskimo, and shouldn’t it be set in New Guinea?’ And you say, ‘But it is a sophisticated romantic comedy set in Paris.’”

― P. J. O’Rourke

“As a longtime former resident of 15 years in Washington, I wish that everybody would stay off the Mall with their political cause so that we can get out there, you know, and play flag football or Frisbee, or walk the dog or something – you know, which is, you know, what the National Mall should be for, in my personal opinion.”

― Patti Davis

“I don’t always like walking down the street and making sure that I smile and say hello to everybody who’s walking their dog in the opposite direction. But I do do it. And it’s a small, tiny thing to do. But to me, it means ‘I see you. You’re not invisible to me.’”

“No book of mine is complete without a dog.”

― Peter Temple

“One of my friends started a company in 1997, seven years before Facebook, called SocialNet. And they had all these ideas, and you could be, like, a cat, and I’d be a dog on the Internet, and we’d have this virtual reality, and we would just not be ourselves. That didn’t work because reality always works better than any fake version of it.”

― Peter Thiel

“I had a weimaraner for 11 years called China, and he was a great dog, a bit mad. They’re massive, weimaraners; they’ve got big floppy ears. They look like a pointer, but they’re liver-coloured.”

― Rachael Ray

“I work too much to be an appropriate parent. I feel like a bad mom to my dog some days because I’m just not here enough. I just feel like I would do a bad job if I took the time to literally give birth to a kid right now and try and juggle everything I’m doing.”

― Rachael Ray

“I have this extraordinary life during the day, and then I get to come home to my sweet husband who loves to cook with me. I have a nice glass of wine, he has some scotch, we chat, we cook, and we hang out with the dog. I have an absolute dream life.”

“He reproduced himself with so much humble objectivity, with the unquestioning, matter of fact interest of a dog who sees himself in a mirror and thinks: there’s another dog.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

― Raymond Moody

“I used to have a dog, and I was very close to my dog, and he passed away, so when I need to bring out a moment where I’m crying, I bring out that moment. His name was Rinkles. All of the boys in my family’s names are spelled with an ‘R,’ and he was a boy, so he was Rinkles with an ‘R,’ not a ‘W.’”

― Raymond Ochoa

“The last thing that scared me… it was probably something stupid, like when someone jumped out at me, or I thought my new dog had gone to the toilet underneath my piano. Lots of silly things.”

― Rebecca Hall

“I was planning to go into law or politics. I was well known for my public speaking. I went to an all-girl boarding school with uniforms. It was very posh for someone like me who came from a world where my parents showed beagles and sold dog products out of a yellow caravan.”

― Rebel Wilson

― Richard J. Codey

“With ‘Moreau,’ it’s been particularly confusing because I started out being the writer of the screenplay and then trying to be the director, then being moved from being the director and having to become the dog extra, it makes some kind of sense to suddenly become a character in the story.”

― Richard Stanley

“I am not a cat lover. I am a dog lover – but I’m only a lover of hypoallergenic dogs.”

― Rick Hoffman

“I didn’t want to be one of the Beach Boys or one of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah band. I mean, we appreciated that music. But I didn’t want to grow a beard to look like Roy Wood just because I liked him.”

“I like ‘Salty Dog’ by Procol Harum.”

― Rick Nielsen

“Allowing casinos to operate without having races could result in the end of dog racing in Florida as we know it. Right now, greyhound racing is in many cases a money-losing proposition, but the dog tracks are forced to continue it because they have to have races in order to operate the lucrative casinos.”

― Rick Scott

“I can’t imagine God not allowing my dog into heaven.”

“There is a movie called ‘My Dog Skip,’ starring my ‘Outsiders’ costar Diane Lane. I do not recommend it. If you have a child, particularly one about to leave home, watching this film is to be emotionally waterboarded.”

“My son Matthew’s beloved dog is a Jack Russell. His name is Buster. Matthew picked him as a puppy, when he was tiny himself.”

― Rob Lowe

“If you think hard enough about it, Rowlf the dog playing the piano on ‘The Muppet Show’ – what kind of insanity was happening underneath the cameras to make that happen? His mouth is moving, and he’s got two hands playing the piano. That’s two people under there!”

― Rob McClure

“Most of an award-show host’s job is showing up and keeping a cool head and soldiering through it, whether it’s the Oscars or the Hallmark Channel’s ‘Hero Dog Awards.’”

“No other animal bonds to a human being the way a dog does. And I suspect there is no other animal to which human beings can bond the way we can bond to a dog.”

― Robert Crais

“Everyone knows dogs. Most people love dogs. I think most American families probably have a dog, but I don’t think people really realize or understand just how wonderful and special dogs are.”

― Robert Crais

― Robert Fulghum

“Ballet in September used to be dead as a dodo. Now, with City Ballet’s ingenious decision to give us four weeks of repertory in the early fall, having cut down on the relentlessly long spring season when dancers, critics and audiences droop on the vine, we wake up after the dog days of August with something to look at.”

― Robert Gottlieb

“I did not have a dog with a diamond collar. I was never flashy.”

― Roger Caras

“Imagine that you’re a gay man, and you’re spending all your time with people who believe you are possessed by the devil.

― Roger Ross Williams

“There are more dog owners in America than there are conservatives.”

― Roger Stone

― Ronnie Corbett

“The thing that I just discovered, which fascinates me really – my name, McCann, the translation isn’t ‘Son of Ann’… It comes from ‘Canis’ – as in ‘canine’ – as in ‘dog!’ My name – Rory McCann – means Rory Hound, Rory Wolfhound.”

― Rory McCann

“That’s my takeaway from ‘Scream’ – I know I can fit in dog doors. You have to jimmy your body in a certain position and really hope you’re not wearing something super fancy.”

― Rose McGowan

“A lot of times, my best friend was my dog.”

― Rose Namajunas

“Being on ‘The Biggest Loser,’ that’s where my fire turned back on. It was time to go out there and take care of business. The old dog has the scent to hunt again, and for me, this dog wants to run again and go with the big guys.”

― Rulon Gardner

“Everything about the left is perception, manipulation, and lies. Everything. Everything is ‘Wag the Dog.’ Everything is a structured deception.”

― Rush Limbaugh

“’Adventure Time’ tells stories where anything can happen, but what happens is. It stars Finn, a boy who fights evil, and Jake, a dog with stretchy powers. Both of them can talk.”

― Samuel Johnson

“Being in front of a camera, in a nice dress, getting all dressed up, is extreme. There’s a lot of other extreme situations, you know, just getting out of bed sometimes is extreme – but I do it. Just got to do it, just got to get up. Put your sweatpants on, brush off the dog hair and just get out of the house!”

― Sandra Bullock

“As a woman, this is one of these areas where you have to walk a fine line: the classic, ‘Are you soft and squishy, and you hug everybody, and you’re a cheerleader?’ versus, ‘Are you the hard-nosed you-know-what female dog?’”

― Sandra E. Peterson

“Beating up on public schools is not just our nation’s favorite blood sport, but also a favorite conversational entertainment of the well-off – like debating the most recent toothsome plot twists of ‘Big Love’ – who, of course, have no dog in the fight.”

― Sandra Tsing Loh

“The media should be ready to cover every event at the Oberois’ residence. If Vivek’s dog has dysentery tomorrow, we should be prepared to hear Vivek talk about it on camera for three hours.”

― Sanjay Leela Bhansali

“I have a dog. He cuddles with me all night, so I don’t really need a boyfriend.”

“I don’t smoke, I try to eat right, and I love doing yoga and going for hikes with my dog.”

― Sarah Chalke

“When you are a kid, a wolf is an amazing sight, so sumptuous. I sort of knew these were splendid creatures, that I was not going to find them outside roaming around. It was like a dog, but not a dog. It was incredible, a god!”

― Sarah Hall

“I love living in L.A. It’s quieter. It’s much more relaxing. I’m living in a house for the first time ever. I have a backyard for the first time ever; a dog for the first time ever. So it’s a lot of firsts, and I love it so much. It’s just so different. It’s a nice change of pace.”

― Sarah Hyland

― Seann William Scott

“I’ve thought it would be cool to have a baby young. You know, be my road dog – like my dogs, they travel the world – but there’s always something you have to give up for success. Everything comes at a cost. Just what are you willing to pay for it?”

― Serena Williams

“American dog say, ‘Woof, woof.’ Korean dog say, ‘Mung, mung.’ Polish dog say, ‘How, how.’ So which dog barking is correct? That is human beings’ barking, not ‘dog’ barking. If dog and you become one hundred percent one, then you know sound of barking. This is Zen teaching. Boom! Become one.”

― Seung Sahn

“I thought I was okay in my first film, and then I was really, really bad in some films. I really cringe when I see some of my scenes. There’s a scene in one film where a dog is biting me; the expressions I have made should be qualified as the most over-acted scene in the history of the cinema. The dog’s expressions were more real than mine.”

― Shahid Kapoor

“I knew I was dog meat. Luckily, I’m the high-priced dog meat that everybody wants. I’m the good-quality dog meat. I’m the Alpo of the NBA.”

“My thing is this: You’ve got to talk about politics because it’s out there. But I try to respect the fact that even if you don’t have my views, I still respect your view. I may dog your view, but I’ll respect that you have that view. And it’s OK to come back at me to defend your view.”

― Sinbad

“I have a song called ‘Young Voorhees,’ because I like to call myself the new Jason Voorhees, and it samples ‘Courage the Cowardly Dog.’”

― Ski Mask the Slump God

“There is no such thing as a crazy dog person in New York. Are there people who are completely insane about their dogs? Hordes. But cat people may as well have whiskers and tails themselves. That’s because their pets’ lack of social need taps straight into our worst fears as the human inhabitants of New York.”

― Sloane Crosley

“’Your Dog’ I tried to re-record at my house, like, four times after the studio recordings were done.”

― Soccer Mommy

“People care about my personal life. But really I’m dorky! I drink beer and go to football games. And ya know, sit in my house in a t-shirt on the weekends and play with my dog!”

― Sophia Bush

“Growing up, I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one.”

― Steve Carell

“When I was a kid if I was unhappy, I’d stroke my dog. I was into bringing injured birds into the house, RSPCA activities. And the relationship that you have with animals, you can get that from your children: that unquestioning love and adoration and equal need.”

― Steve McFadden

“I’m not a great actor – let’s face it. I don’t have a great deal of scope. There are certain things I can do, but when I’m bad, I stink. There’s something about my shaggy dog eyes that makes people think I’m good. I’m not all that good.”

― Steve McQueen

“There really is no ethical difference between eating a cat or a chicken, a dog or a pig.”

― Steve-O

“I have a rescue dog named Walter, and Walter and I are such fans of the ‘Jersey Shore’ that we changed his name to DJ Wally D.”

― Steve-O

“All through the kind of late ’80s and ’90s, every A&R record company man was saying, ‘Now what we want is another record like ‘Back in the High Life.’ And, of course, that’s not the way to make music at all. That’s the tail wagging the dog.”

― Steve Winwood

“The thing that always interests me from a storytelling point of view is how that moment of trauma, whatever the trauma is, even divorce, your dog dies, whatever it is, the consequence, in terms of people’s emotional lives and the way it resonates behaviorally for a long time, is really the stuff that interests me.”

― Steven Bochco

“It doesn’t work if the bad guys kill his mother’s uncle’s friend’s neighbor’s pet dog. You’ve got to make the stakes high.”

― Sue Monk Kidd

“One of my favorite workouts to do with my girlfriends is yoga. We are equally impatient with our yoga. We are those people who are sweating in the back, and we’ll be in downward dog giggling and looking at each other. And I know what we’re all thinking: What are we going to order for dinner afterward?”

― Summer Sanders

“We take things to remind us of home. I think my favourite is a stuffed dog that was homemade from a picture of my little Jack Russell terrier.”

― Suranne Jones

“Dog parks are more cliquish than any other human gathering with the possible exception of seventh grade. Deal with it.”

― Susan Orlean

“In an interesting inversion of status, the reigning breed in the dog park these days is the really-oddball-unidentifiable-mixed-breed-mutt-found-wandering-the-street or its equivalent. The stranger the mutt the better; the more peculiar the circumstance of it coming into your life, the better.”

― Susan Orlean

“You may never learn the names of any of the people you talk to in a dog park, even after many, many hours spent there with them, and many hours of conversation. But if – knock on wood – anything should ever happen to your dog, these nameless non-strangers will rally, sympathize, offer to help, and hold your hand. I know this from experience.”

― Susan Orlean

“Sense of smell, of course, is only one of those dog qualities that can’t be replicated or improved upon. I’ve been researching dogs in warfare for my book about ‘Rin Tin Tin,’ and I’ve read many accounts of their heroics: carrying messages through battle, alerting troops to enemy planes, and even parachuting behind enemy lines.”

― Susan Orlean

“The things that make me very angry are injustice and bullying. If I see someone bullying a woman or child in the street, or kicking a dog, I go completely mad.”

― Suzy Shuster

“I heard one story about an octopus in a home tank who would get out, cruise around the house, take knick-knacks, and drag them back to its tank. Like a dog! They’re so smart that there are octopus enrichment handbooks so you don’t bore your octopus. I’ve seen them play with Legos, Mr. Potato Head, you name it!”

― Sy Montgomery

“On ‘Euphoria,’ it’s so fun because we’re all the same age, so being able to hang out and go out together and go to different events together has been so fun compared to always being the youngest on set, which was really fun, but it’s like, you’re going to go home to your husband or wife, and I’m going to go home to my dog.”

― Sydney Sweeney

“I mask every single day. I mask every morning – since I was 27 years old. I don’t care the brand: it can be from the drugstore or high end. I can be walking my dog in the mask scaring children and people off, but it’s my routine that I commit to every single day.”

― Tamron Hall

“I get up when I feel like getting up. That’s the deal I’ve made with myself: I can stay in bed as long as my dog’s bladder holds. The other half of that deal is that once the dog is walked, the very next thing I do is write. It’s mechanical. It’s programming, very nearly brainwashing.”

― Tara Westover

“I converse with my dog through ESP.”

― Taylor Caldwell

“I think people are obsessed with their pets because pets don’t speak. It’s that simple. After you hang up the phone, you never hear a dog say, ‘You’re a liar, and you are making the same self-sabotaging mistakes that have kept you single for far too long.’”

― Taylor Negron

“These days, many people are unwilling to see their dog as an animal. Let’s face it: they are cute, but they will bite. Not only do I look at dogs as animals, I look at myself as an animal, which explains why, since I got my permit, I drive with my head out the window.”

― Taylor Negron

“When the idea of ‘Chopped’ surfaced, it was originally meant to be taped at some guy’s mansion with him and his crazy Chihuahua. A stuffy fellow in a tuxedo was to host, and the losing chef’s dish was then fed to the dog! I am not kidding, I saw it! I think it is genius! Twisted, but genius!”

― Ted Allen

“Having an animal that you fix, knowing that you saved its life or you saved a pet – Like on a dog, these little kids will come, and their dog is just ready to die, and you do something, and they leave happy. The kids are happy, and the little puppy is licking your hand. Those are kind of neat feelings.”

― Ted Yoho

“I love doing great entertainment, but I like the joke to be on me. I don’t want to take advantage of some poor person and dog ’em out and let the chips fall.”

― Terry Crews

“Sooner or later we’re all someone’s dog.”

― Terry Pratchett

“I have a dog whose name is Banquo.”

― Thornton Wilder

“The dog commends himself to our favor by affording play to our propensity for mastery.”

― Tiffani Thiessen

“I don’t want any dog to be put down.”

― Tila Tequila

“There are several ways we can know what a dog, a bird or, indeed, any other organism can see, for example either by looking at the structure of the eye and comparing it with other species, or by behavioural tests.”

― Tim Birkhead

― Tim Howard

“I’m a dog person, but I don’t have a pet.”

― Timothy Simons

“In most states, it’s more difficult to get a license for your dog than it is to buy a big cat. Right now, there are more tigers in the state of Texas than in all of India.”

― Tippi Hedren

“If I stayed in Florida, I would have a house and a dog and a partner. And, honestly, I was so bored.”

― Tituss Burgess

“My dog’s a gentleman.”

― Todd Phillips

“We were empty nesters, our last-born child having departed for Duke. Meredith decided we needed a dog to fill the vacuum. She heard about a litter in Colorado sired by Chopper, the legendary avalanche dog at the top of Aspen Mountain.”

― Tom Brokaw

“In one way or another, President Obama’s critics will dog him all the way to Oslo for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, and even his admirers will continue to have doubts about his accomplishments if not his promise.”

― Tom Brokaw

― Tom Sizemore

“I bark my voice out through a closed throat, pretty much. It’s more, perhaps, like a dog in some ways. It does have its limitations, but I’m learning different ways to keep it alive.”

― Tom Waits

“A blind bloke walks into a shop with a guide dog. He picks the Dog up and starts swinging it around his head. Alarmed, a shop assistant calls out: ‘Can I help, sir?’ ‘No thanks,’ says the blind bloke. ‘Just looking.’”

“Yeah, dog was this man’s best friend, for sure.”

― Tommy Rettig

“As a very small boy, my passion was nature, and I had pets – cats, a dog and a bunny rabbit – and I wrote a very small book called ‘My Pets,’ filled with their photographs and a discussion about my pets and how much I loved them… That was my first book.”

― Tony Buzan

“I go into it with the attitude that I’m not going to look at my leg, and as soon as they get the wrapping off of it, I’m like, ‘I’ve got to look.’ It’s like yelling at a dog going, ‘Squirrel!’ I cannot not look. And then I spend the rest of the time sitting there with a wet washcloth on my forehead trying to regain consciousness.”

― Tony Stewart

“The problem of online identity is expressed best in an old ‘New Yorker’ cartoon with a picture of a dog next to a computer, and the dog says, ‘No one online knows you’re a dog.’”

― Toomas Hendrik Ilves

“People idealise their animals, and at the same time they patronisingly overlook a dog’s natural life – biting fleas, burying bones, rolling in garbage, barking up an empty tree all night… But what do they do themselves? Bury stuff that will rot in secret and then dig it up and bury it again and rant and rave under empty trees!”

― Tove Jansson

“The best thing I ever bought is my dog Stitch. He’s the best friend & companion.”

― Travie McCoy

“I must say, I’ve been in the studio with Jay Z, dog… I thought the freestyle thing was a myth. But, bro!”

― Travis Scott

“I’ve been writing on my own. It’s like Roger Miller used to say, every now and then, like a dog having puppies, you have to crawl under the house and do it yourself.”

― Travis Tritt

― Tre Cool

“No one has probably helped me more with my narcissism than my dog.”

― Tucker Max

“There’s the conforming 9-to-5-lifestyle thing. Then there’s, like, settling down, trying to find a balance in a relationship sense, or having a dog and having a house. All these things, like, they’re not really gonna make you happy.”

― Ty Segall

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a hot dog or other convenience foods, as long as they’re balanced with fresh vegetables. It’s hard to ignore 95 percent of the grocery store.”

― Uta Hagen

“Again, in Wag the Dog, war has to be declared by an act of congress. But if you go to war, you don’t have to declare war. You’re just at war and we did that, which is not legal.”

― Val Kilmer

“I was working like a dog as a housekeeper, barista, nanny, cook, so I could save enough money to really sit with my instruments. Whenever I had 20 minutes, I would practice a new chord or write a new verse.”

― Valerie June

“I desperately want a dog, but I’ve been told I travel too much, and I’m not allowed to have a dog.”

― Victoria Pratt

“I didn’t have any role models really. My best friend was a dog. My mum and dad saved a dog from the gutter and that dog was my brother before Jesse was born. Sami was his name and he was my role model.”

― Ville Valo

“From my point of view, I’m a totally normal person! Really! I have a family. I have kids. I have a house… I don’t have a dog.”

― Vincent Cassel

“My main characters are the most sunny, happy, optimistic, loving creatures on the face of the Earth. I couldn’t be happier that’s where I start. I can put as many flawed people in the dog’s world as I like, but the dog doesn’t care. Dog doesn’t judge. Dog doesn’t dislike. Dog loves. That’s not so bad.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“Most of what happens in the world is far beyond a dog’s comprehension, so they must turn to their faith in us to help them navigate life’s treacheries. Don’t we, also, have unanswerable questions about the vagaries of modern existence for which the answer is beyond human grasp, so that only our faith can guide us?”

― W. Bruce Cameron

― W. Bruce Cameron

“I was riding my mountain bike in Colorado, and I met a dog who reminded me so much of my very first dog in the way she interacted with me, looked at me, and wagged her tail that I rode away convinced I’d just very possibly met the reincarnated version of my long lost friend.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“I read that all dogs have wolf DNA in them, which seemed preposterous because my dog, Tucker, is… afraid of plastic bags blowing in the wind. I thought, ‘How can Tucker have wolf in him? How can this be?’ So I started researching it.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“The loneliest, most down-on-his-luck person can have a dog who adores him. The most bitter, sour person can light up with joy when he sees his dog. It is magical, and as ‘The Dog Master’ reveals, it is biological – we evolved together.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“I see dog stories as an antidote to the dire news that nothing is ever going to get better.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“A lot of people think I am the one to turn to for dog behavior issues. I’m not. All you have to do is meet Tucker; you’ll know that I’m not an expert at training dogs.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“The ‘Dog’s Purpose’ premise has gotten me so many emails and comments from people who say that their dog is so much like one they had when they were young or years before, that it seems like the truth. The idea that you would come across an old friend later in life.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“The story of ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ flowed into me a set piece. The entire book was just there, as if I were connected to a streaming service, a novel wholly formed of character and plot. This has never happened to me before or since. I prayed for help and I got it. A gift.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“I’ve read that an average dog possesses a vocabulary of 200-300 words, which is enough for him to have his own Twitter account.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“I once did a film in which I was being chased by wolves. I had a scene where the Alpha of the pack leapt on the hood of my car and stared me down through the windshield. I will never forget staring into those eyes; this wasn’t a dog – not even a tough, bad-ass dog – no, this was a wolf.”

― W. Earl Brown

“Men have been found to deny woman intellect; they have credited her with instinct, with intuition, with a capacity to correlate cause and effect much as a dog connects its collar with a walk.”

― W. L. George

“No matter how you’re feeling, a little dog gunna love you.”

― Waka Flocka Flame

“I worked at a hot dog place, a bagel place, the Jersey Store and the hottest fashion joint around. I was getting too famous to work there anymore. I was almost showing up as a joke. I made $2,000 on my show the previous night and I’m going to go shopping during my five-hour shift.”

― Wale

“I’m so tired of stories starting, ‘Maud Jones was walking her dog down Broadway.’ You’ve got to go over to the back page somewhere to finally find out the damn dog was run over by a truck. Get the thing told, for heaven’s sake. Everybody doesn’t have to be an O. Henry.”

― Walter Cronkite

― Wild Bill Hickok

― Wylie Dufresne

“Quarreling over food and drink, having neither scruples nor shame, not knowing right from wrong, not trying to avoid death or injury, not fearful of greater strength or of greater numbers, greedily aware only of food and drink – such is the bravery of the dog and boar.”

― Xun Kuang

“All of us want to live, and that is absolutely natural. However, we should learn from childhood on to choose our best way to die. If we don’t do that, we end up spending our days like a dog, only in search of harbour, food and expressing a blind loyalty to his owner in return. That isn’t enough to make our lives have a meaning.”

― Yamamoto Tsunetomo

“If you stop and think about who was in the ‘Lassie’ movies, it’s difficult to think who was in them, apart from Elizabeth Taylor. You remember the dog, not the people! So if you’re going to be in a movie, and it’s called ‘Gremlins’, it’s going to be about Gremlins, and what people are going to remember are the Gremlins.”

― Zach Galligan

“The thing about owls is that they do sort of have this facial disc, which is unlike any other bird. They kind of have a face, more than like a dog or a giraffe. They have this weird, alien face that you can actually make expressive.”

― Zack Snyder
