A lovely quote and reminder on dogs by John Bradshaw
An extra quote for you, this one’s on me! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Now I had a really tough time sorting out the absolute best 25 dog quotes from the infinite list available on the internet. But I had to keep it short, else it would have gone on forever. Such is the canine love! Dog-lovers must be having their heartstrings tugged at already and the skeptics must be having a comparatively lesser room left in their hearts, with regard to the divinity of the dog soul. Because, obviously these immensely successful people have not been paid to endorse dogs (like celebrities who often have no idea what product or service they are selling or vouching for, but would confidently claim how life changingly amazing it has proven to them personally! And it does have the impact they are charging for, because even if most people deny, they do dig into them.) Whereas the ones who form the source of the quotes are all level headed wise people, who have proven their mettle, time and again, internationally. These statements come out straight from their hearts, based on their honest real-life experiences with dogs. I, along with the many people who have had the opportunity of being blessed with canine companionship, thoroughly understand and appreciate the depth of each of the quotes above. Also we’re literally living for the day everyone else does too!

Also in case your thirst still remains unquenched, (I so get it, just 25 of these lovelies is so unsatisfying ๐Ÿ˜›) I am adding a link to the complete list of dog quotes available on the internet, here. Enjoy!
