  • This is my personal favorite: If a dog jumps in your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer.

    But then again… I’m a dog person :)

    Nice blog you have here. I have bookmarked it.

  • The fact that so many blogs focus on pet shows once again that they are indeed man’s best friend. It’s great to see so many people now looking more seriously at dog’s health issues, whether it’s dog food or pet insurance.

  • As owner of two cats and one dog… I have to say that the cat jumping on your lap comment is completely true. This is my first dog and I never realized how much love and affection a pet can give.

  • “The dog was created especially for children. He is the god of frolic”.

    This is so true, when I see my children playing with their dogs. Great quotes, thank you.

    Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job. ~Franklin P. Jones

    My dog “Keno” was lost in the woods for 100 days. He is asleep at my feet now. All the “Quotes” in the world cannot describe this one.

    It was over 3 months of pure H…

    Bottom line? I never gave up and neither did he. My own quote:

    Human reasoning and canine instinct are not compatible. Faith wins out on both species.

    A dog is the only creature that loves you more than himself.

    My favorite dog saying is: “You can’t run with the big dogs all night and lay up under the porch with puppies all day.”

  • I liked your post and the ideas provided about dog insurance. There are thousands of recommendations out there on dog insurance that are both savvy and not good. If you have any more recommendations concerning dog insurance, that would be much appreciated. Keep up the quality writing!
