Every day, the humane societies execute thousands of dogs who tried all their lives to do their very best by their owners.

Ankita Lokhande
Anyone who lives with a dog, as I do, knows that dogs are thinking, feeling individuals who do not deserve to be caged, scared and used as disposable test tubes with tails.
Victoria Silvstedt
I think women are much more open to new ideas but approach a line more from a more personal and skeptical place – you need to seduce them into your clothes, whereas most men just like to be told what they should be wearing. Women are a bit like cats and men like dogs in that respect when it comes to clothes.
I am a dog and a cat lover; doesn’t matter which animal it is but dogs are cuter at times.
Asking me to choose between a traditional book and a Kindle is like asking me which of my dogs I love most.

Is it crazy that George Bush, ex-President of America, now paints pictures of dogs? Tiny, little, nice pictures of dogs, after all the suffering that he caused? That’s crazy that he’s doing that!
Toby Regbo
People – and dogs – are dying to be trained.
Ian Dunbar

I think there’s a big price to pay for consciousness, knowing that it’s all going to end and we’re mortal. I envy dogs. They don’t know they’re getting old! And they don’t know it’s towards the end. I mean, they never think, ‘I used to get by on 16 hours of sleep a day. Now, if I don’t get 19, I’m a wreck.’

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?

Around my house, I won’t even speak to my family unless they first address me by my official Berzerker name, Godred Crovan, Victor of Sky-Hill and Ruler of Man and the Isles.

I obviously have a very strong love for dogs.
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.

I do get cast in the same role a lot, but the truth is, I just want longevity. The thing is, I’d rather be stuck in a stereotype than be nowhere. The whole typecasting thing started because of ‘Reservoir Dogs.’ And I did a bunch of other films like ‘Wyatt Earp’ and ‘Free Willy,’ but no one seems to remember those.
I’d love to have a little Coco if I could have my way. I always dress up my dogs and they probably hate me for it, so it would be nice to dress up a human being.

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.
If it’s lawful to have a rifle club to kill pheasants, it should be just as lawful to have one to kill wolves or dogs that are being sicked on little black babies. In fact, it’s constitutional. Article Number Two of the constitution guarantees the right of every citizen to own a rifle or a shot gun.
Malcolm X
I was at home with my family and have a house full of puppies, and my cousin mentioned that with all the stories I have about my dogs, it might be a cool opportunity to make a memoir of sorts.

I have an incredible relationship with dogs. I'm kind o

I have an incredible relationship with dogs. I’m kind of a dog-whisperer.
I have a really good at-home support system with my wife and the baby and even the dogs in that they all just keep me occupied, they keep me busy, they keep me moving, to keep my mind from drifting.
I find my best writing time is actually 6 A.M., before the detritus of the day – the fish fingers and the school uniform and dogs and bills – have had a chance to clog up my brain. I can usually get 500 words done before 7 A.M. But it is difficult, and the Internet, and social networking, are terrible timesucks.
I have two dogs, a springer spaniel and a German shepherd. One of them’s name is Nolan Arenado.
There are a lot of dogs that need homes, and it’s not always easy to find the right fit.

Go through my text messages and reply to anything that needs it, then get my biking gear on ready to cycle to work.
I’ve had dogs all my life. I’m a huge animal lover, especially dogs, so that’s one of the hardest things about being away all the time. I really miss them, but my mum does a really good job looking after then when I’m gone.
It’s funny, I feel like dogs take after their owners and certain mannerisms and the energy that they have.
Some people say that their pets will tell them when it’s time to go. I don’t believe that. No animal of mine has ever told me he was ready to die. I wish it were that simple. Dogs can communicate, but they cannot talk, nor do they think in our language or on our terms.
If you don’t have the energy or time to walk your dog, what I recommend is a doggie treadmill. It takes a little while to get the dogs accustomed to it and they are expensive, but if you’re looking for a lavish gift for a dog that’s fat, it’s really great.
Apparently, all I do is walk my dogs. In L.A., I have more of a yard existence, and so I enjoy walking my two little dogs in New York – one’s a Maltese and the other’s a Shih Tzu.
I have to have energy because I have a lot of expenses. A couple of cars, couple of dogs and a big estate.
I have a very sensitive nose. I identify with dogs. I understand the world through my nose.
Let lying dogs sleep is something I always say in reference to the Smiths.

A couple months before I got the audition for ‘Arrow,’ my husband and I had just sold everything we owned, packed our dogs and belongings into a truck, and moved to Los Angles with a prayer and almost no money.

I hope my tongue in prune juice smothers, If I belittle dogs and mothers.
Sometimes I think I am still that 5-year-old girl playing with her dogs in the yard. That’s how I see myself.
Rachel Hunter

Dogs are very strange, but they’re wonderful and they love to cuddle, and their breath is so stinky!

The shooting of ‘Nadunisai Naigal’ started at 7 in the evening and ended by 4 in the morning. Physically too, it was a very demanding film as I have a lot of action scenes. I had to run, roll in the mud and was chased by dogs. It was not an easy film to shoot.
I get to sit at home with the dogs on the sofa, record in a closet in the office, send them off and, if I’m lucky, make a million dollars.
We fill our lives with all sorts of things that make it easier for us to get along in the world: wheelchairs, crutches, grabber sticks, hearing aids, canes, guide dogs, modified vehicles, ramps, as well as other kinds of services and supports. Disability does not necessarily mean dependence on other people.
When you go to watch a baseball game, when you go to watch an NBA game, when you watch an NFL game, when you go to watch movies, the offering that those arenas are doing foodwise is ‘all the hot dogs you can eat’; all the French fries you can eat; for $20 you can eat 20 hot dogs.
Michael Vick may enjoy watching dogs fight. Someone else may find that repulsive but see nothing wrong with eating an animal who has had a life as full of pain and suffering as the lives of the fighting dogs. It’s strange that we regard the latter as morally different from, and superior to, the former.
Gary L. Francione
I have two dogs, and I write at home.

The first thing I do when I come to work, I say hello to my dogs and give them one biscuit each.

They run around, up and down, left and right.

We ended up moving out to Texas. We live outside of Austin. We’ve got a couple horses, we’ve got three miniature donkeys, we’ve got four dogs. Miniature donkeys are very warm, loving animals.
We have associations to things. We have, you know, we have associations to tables and to – and to dogs and to cats and to Harvard professors, and that’s the way the mind works. It’s an association machine.
We need wealthy dogs off the seats of power. They’re taking us back to feudalism and I really don’t want that. But I’m very far from being a socialist.

My friends were dropping like flies, and the government wasn’t doing anything. You don’t watch an entire generation take water hoses and dogs on the front line during the ’60s or watch another generation perish from AIDS and then get to drive around in big cars and do nothing.
I’m just a dog person. I love my dogs.
I think the amount of love and trust on Capitol Hill is often in short supply, and having more dogs here would probably make this place work better and maybe in a more bipartisan manner.

I have always been an animal lover and I had pet dogs at home. On the day of Diwali, they would be so disturbed and scared that they would hide in a corner and would not come out. I had decided then that I would stop buying crackers on Diwali.
We’ve got eight dogs, a cat, a turtle, kids… yeah we have a lot of dogs. It’s a lot of fur, it’s a lot of poop… and that’s not even counting Robbie. He’s the hairiest most feral animal of all.
I have an issue with dogs – I can’t pick up after them. It’s nothing personal; it just makes me feel like a servant.
Ned Vizzini

I was a dog in a past life. Really. I'll be walking dow

Barking dogs occasionally bite, but laughing men hardly ever shoot.
The trees in Siberia are miles apart, that is why the dogs are so fast.
Bob Hope
Lifetime dogs intersect with our lives with particular impact; they’re dogs we love in especially powerful, sometimes inexplicable, ways.
Linda loves an argument, and I like to engage, too, but she knows that I’m a poet, so I will engage forever. We are in the Chinese astrology of dogs, and we are forever snapping at each other.
I watched ‘Free Willy’ probably 100 times. I nearly wore out the VHS tape. That movie was my introduction to Michael Madsen. When I finally saw ‘Reservoir Dogs’, I was like, ‘That’s the guy from ‘Free Willy’!’ – which is probably the wrong way around.
Callum Turner
I know I hold the contest record for downing the most hot dogs, and the record for most Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Contest championships, but it was really cool to be a part of a Guinness World Records official attempt.
I always wanted that house where everybody wants to go, full of energy, dogs, music, fun.

Learning from wolves to interact with pet dogs makes about as much sense as, ‘I want to improve my parenting – let’s see how the chimps do it!’

I have dogs, and it’s no secret that I find reptiles interesting, but the thing about reptiles is that they really just wanna be left alone, and I understand them. It’s, ‘Don’t pick me up, stop holding me, don’t look at me, just leave me alone.’ I have to admit, sometimes I feel like that.
Dogs give us unconditional love.
A lot of people say they eat, drink, and sleep sports, but does anyone really do it, ingesting nothing but Dodger Dogs and Soda Shaqs and Greg Norman Zinfandels 24/7?
I love all dogs; I really do.
Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.
I will eat a hot dog but I’m not big into hot dogs.
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.
When you make a movie like ‘Straw Dogs,’ your goal is to have people’s eyes remain glued to the screen. It serves you no purpose to turn away from the screen.
I get really attached to dogs.
I was a postman one Christmas and I developed a morbid fear of dogs.
Diane Abbott
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.
Popular culture tells you that schools and parents don’t know what’s going on, the police are dogs, politicians are all liars and scum, and any crime that’s not committed by the Mafia is done by the CIA.
There are a lot of people who helped make Queen Latifah who she is today. I don’t forget, but a lot of people do and get big heads. My mom will make me walk the dogs or take out the trash when I go home. I’m not allowed to get a big head; I’ve still got to do the simple things in life.
My advice to anybody, including myself, is if you’re going through a bad period, and you just can’t see the world’s on your shoulders and no day is a good day, you’re missing the whole point of the experience. And that’s something dogs know from the moment they come bounding up to you as a puppy.
We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight.
Coyotes are smart and hunt very well in L.A. When dogs are small, you can’t leave them out alone – especially at daybreak, night time, and evening.
Well, chainsaw art is when you pick up a log and carve

Well, chainsaw art is when you pick up a log and carve a mermaid or a dolphin or dogs or bears or whatever. I saw some people doing it in Malibu in the early ’90s and I couldn’t get it out of my head.
Cherie Currie
Truth be told, actually, my favorite director of the Movie Brats was not Scorsese. Loved him. But my favorite director of the Movie Brats was Brian de Palma. I actually met De Palma right after I’d done ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ and I was very beside myself.
I have dogs, and I hike.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton
When I was a young boy, I preferred cats to dogs. From the age of seven or eight onwards I just felt more comfortable with cats. And I felt more comfortable with girls, I didn’t really like hanging out with guys. When I was about ten or eleven, I was friendlier with the girls in my school than with the guys.
I only really cook for myself once or twice a week, but I cook for my dogs almost every day.

The first videos I uploaded on my own personal channel were videos of dogs.

Like dogs in a wheel, birds in a cage, or squirrels in a chain, ambitious men still climb and climb, with great labor, and incessant anxiety, but never reach the top.

Shannen Doherty
Special-purpose dogs have been a critical component for police and military work in the current war on terror. These dogs are some of the bravest animals on the planet.
In ‘We Were the Mulvaneys,’ animals are almost as important as people. I wanted to show the tenderness in our relationships with cats, dogs, and horses. Especially cats.
None of the kids in the neighborhood had dogs. My dad walked in that Labrador, and we started running together and rolling around together like we found each other after years apart. And then, suddenly, some of the other people in the neighborhood started getting dogs, too.
We’re all animals, but we’re a different sort of animal. Maybe they’re better than us. They’re more loyal. They’re more pure. They’re more simple. They’re not neurotic. Well, there are some neurotic dogs.
Kevin Kline
Journalists are like dogs, when ever anything moves they begin to bark.
My life contains so many other things; I have my children, my grandchildren, my two dogs and a big place in the country. I have my own life.
Every time I decide I want a child I get another pet. I have 3 dogs, 13 birds and 3 horses, what does that tell you?
My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs.
Elisabetta Canalis
The dogs and I are a single thing, and thus we share our interests. With them, I’m bigger and better than I am without them, and vice versa.
Sometimes you have to understand that you push ahead, there’s going to be a lot of flak, there’s going to be a lot of dogs barking, but the wagon train moves ahead.

I consider myself the queen of pugs of New York City. I’m really into my dogs. Massive pugs, massive needlepoint, massive color!
Brigid Berlin
I stand fearlessly for small dogs, the American Flag, motherhood and the Bible. That’s why people love me.
Art Linkletter
I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
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.
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.
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.
My family raised bird dogs when I was growing up in Jon

My family raised bird dogs when I was growing up in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and I’m a gun owner myself.
I live in the country. I’m a bird-watcher, an oyster-raiser. You know, I’ll do anything that – raise dogs for the blind as a volunteer.
For me personally, I feel that a film that doesn’t end with a happy ending has a far bigger reach. It lingers on far more. Unrequited love stories have much more impact on the audiences. If ‘Romeo and Juliet’ had been happily married and had kids and dogs, I don’t think it would have been a classic.
My family is Chinese-Taiwanese. I’m from Richmond, Virginia. The community in which I grew up was pretty white. The storybooks you got at school featured white children and an animal, or animals, and as you got older, the novels you were assigned were about, like, the problems of white boys and their dogs.
I definitely recommend keeping frozen corn dogs in your freezer.
Some dogs are escape artists.
We are not the only animal that mourns; apes do, and elephants, and dogs. Yet we are the only one that tortures.

One of the most obvious ways dogs can improve our physical and mental health is via daily walks.
In 10 years, I’d love to live near the sea, in a warmer climate. I could see myself with three dogs… and it’d be great to share them with someone else.
I have four dogs, four horses, a cat, and a bunch of wild frogs.
Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.
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.
Everyone is allowed to be vulnerable. I think women and men and dogs and cats and ants and aliens can all express themselves and be vulnerable.
In America, dogs are viewed by their names first, breed second. And dogs live behind walls. It’s an unnatural point of view.
It’s frightening to think about more sanctions. When I’ve met North Koreans in China, they’ve said to me, ‘You have no idea how difficult our lives are. We live like dogs.’ They wake up in the morning wondering what they’re going to eat for dinner.
I have my golden retriever now, Pontiac. He’s a career-change guide dog from Guide Dogs for the Blind.
It’s just so nice when your pet isn’t all needy. I need a lot of space, so dogs suffocate me.
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.
I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.
We have a new puppy and that’s enough! Two babies and three dogs is enough.
Christine Taylor
I love Enzo Amore, man. He’s been one of my road dogs.
When I come to Chicago, I gorge myself. I get off the plane and start with Gene and Jude’s for two hot dogs with everything, swing by The Fudge Pot for a taffy apple and a turtle, chocolate clusters at Sarah‘s Pastries and Candies and steak at Smith and Wollensky. I find time for Gino’s pizza within the next 12 hours.
Typically, housewives and working mums hate each other like dogs fighting for a bone.

Craig McCracken
I’ve got four dogs, eight chickens, 10 sheep and six pigs.

Michael Landon
People ask me in Europe, when they do interviews… they ask me, ‘Well, how does it feel to be a cook in a country that doesn’t know how to eat?’ It always touches a nerve, because Europe and the world think that America is no more than bad hot dogs and bad burgers.
I’m a huge animal lover – I love animals to death. I’ve got tortoises and three dogs, and I’ve had a million animals in the past. I just think that we should do all we can to take care of them.
Roshon Fegan
My mother early on taught us to respect all animals, and I mean all animals – not just cats and dogs but rats and snakes and spiders and fish and wildlife, so I really grew up believing they are just like us and just as deserving of consideration.
Mr. Janet Reno? I think Mr. Janet Reno… I think he’s one of the best hunting dogs in the world.
The nameless loser in Jay McInerney's 'Bright Lights, B

The nameless loser in Jay McInerney’s ‘Bright Lights, Big City‘ is going to the dogs like a gentleman. He is too smart to blame anyone for the impasse he has come to, hip enough to know he does not know enough, too sophisticated to masquerade as an anti-hero.
I have three dogs, a cat, fish. I’m a huge animal lover. They’re amazing.
One of my favorite activities when I was a teenager was going riding on the back of a horse with a friend of mine. Because we were rather high up, I could see into peoples’ lighted windows as we trotted past. Questions would rise up inside: Who lives there? Are they happy? What are they doing? Any dogs or cats in sight?
Ann Turner
I’ve got four dogs, and I just don’t do dog doo. I’m a diva when it comes to that.
If I spend a Saturday being lazy and curled up on the couch with my dogs, I’ll just make sure to get out and be active on Sunday.
I’m really scared of small dogs, dogs in general I guess.
The only weights I lift are my dogs.
I like to take pictures of lots of things: people-such as my nephews, my dogs, and just interesting objects that I see. For instance, I might take a picture of flowers by the side of the road, an old sign or a fence.
I love hot dogs. That’s the only thing I can’t get rid of.
Once I get a rhythm going, I can jump those hot dogs down.
I know nothing about dogs except that I love them.
Joe Garagiola
Up until the age of 12, I went to dog shows every weekend. Mum showed beagles. It’s a really competitive and eclectic world filled with characters who wear interesting outfitssimilar to ‘Toddlers & Tiaras,’ but with dogs.
I was just nine years old when ‘Straw Dogs’ came out, so I can’t really speak to the women of the time, but I can tell you that the women of 2011 are not put-upon, and they’re not victims.
The real lover of cats is one who demands a clearer adjustment to the universe than ordinary household platitudes provide; one who refuses to swallow the sentimental notion that all good people love dogs, children, and horses while all bad people dislike and are disliked by such.
I feel that I had been rescued from the gutter by America. One day I was under the gutter, chased by police, thinking dogs were going to get me. I laid there listening to the dogs and the gutter. The next day, there I am standing on the Olympic platform, and you hear the anthem. I was proud.
I always assumed that, like my mother before me, one day I would have children. When I was 5, my fantasy was to have a hundred dogs and a hundred kids.
My kids think America is swimming pools on the roof, screening rooms, and hot dogs. They love it here.
Flatterers look like friends, as wolves like dogs.
George Chapman
People who are highly motivated, when it comes to dogs, they will go to any extent. Sometimes I feel that dogs play a more important role in their lives, more than other humans do.
Outdoor cooking is not just about hot dogs and hamburgers. There are so many styles of food you can make.
I come from a democratic world. My world is moderate Democrats, Reagan-type Democrats if you want, the blues or whatever you call them, the Blue Dogs. That’s been my world, historically.
Wolves are afraid of humans, whereas dogs are not. Wolves hunt game, whereas dogs scavenge human leftovers or eat what their human companions put out for dinner. Wolves are not great at following human commands, whereas dogs are brilliant at it.
I don’t have pets, I have two guard dogs; and I don’t do my own shopping; it’s a security thing.
There are two things that won’t last long in this world, and that’s dogs chasing cars and pros putting for pars.
I’ve found a place that would amaze you. People used to live there, but now it’s all overgrown and no one goes there. Absolutely no one – only me… Just a little house and a garden. And two dogs.
What they smell isn’t the emotion of fear. What dogs can smell is the changes in a person’s skin that suggest fear to the dog, anxiety, the way your skin sweats, the amount of uric acid that suddenly pours out of your pores.
I’ve been gambling since the age of 12. Horses, dogs, dice, roulette, you name it.
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.
Whenever I feel low, some higher power supports me. It could come through my wife, my children or even my dogs.

I think if you look all across the country, the so-call

I think if you look all across the country, the so-called Blue Dogs are all gone to kennel. There are no more Blue Dogs, they’re called Republicans. People would rather elect consistently conservative Republicans than Blue Dogs, who are only conservative when it’s convenient.
It’s the most prestigious dog show in the country. We love dogs, and we’re having a blast out here.
Melissa Rivers
I like animal sidekicks. They seem to be a pretty cool trope of post-apocalyptic fictionjust because if you’re going to have this lone protagonist, they’re going to need someone to talk to. Dogs are overused, and cats are dumb. So that leaves monkeys.
I couldn’t date someone who didn’t like dogs. There are exceptions to the rule, but I find that if someone doesn’t like animals, I am a little suspicious of them.
Oh, boy, I love dogs. I do have a great affection for all things canine.
If I need to take a break from work, I’ll just Google dogs that are up for adoption in L.A. I really want a poodle mix, and I want to name her Rita. That’s my dream, and one day it’s going to happen.
Georgia King
I grew up on a farm. We had 11 dogs and, like, 1,500 cattle.
We as humans, we’re not solitary people, we’re like dogs, we like to live in packs and know about one another. And, if anything, fame is people trying to attain community on a mass scale, because when you become famous wherever you go people know about what you’ve done and what you’re about to do.
If a transporter could send me from the bed with the dogs watching crappy TV to the stage five minutes before I go on, then immediately back to bed, I would love it.
I want to be with people I care about and hang out with my dogs.
I have never been a pet lover or really craved the idea of having dogs.
I wasn’t seeing black girls in the books I was assigned to read at my school. I was tired of only reading about white boys and dogs and wanted to collect books featuring black girls.
There’s more to a person than whether or not they like dogs.
Many dogs grow up without rules or boundaries. They need exercise, discipline and affection in that order.
Asthma doesn’t seem to bother me any more unless I’m around cigars or dogs. The thing that would bother me most would be a dog smoking a cigar.
I didn’t just eat hot dogs. I studied how the food went into your system and how it would be digested.
My dogs are spoilt for sure. They are pampered pooches. But I love them so much! I guess all dogs need to be washed, but maybe blueberry facials aren’t essential. It’s quite fun, though. You want to give your children everything; I don’t have children, so I want my dogs to have a good life.
I have a teenage daughter and a 10-year-old daughter. Things are pink and fluffy at my house, with two little dogs. It’s pretty funny to be me now. And I’m in on the joke that is my life.
Domestic dogs thrive in the backyard and at the foot of the bed. Wolves thrive on the hunt in the country’s wildlands.
Horses and dogs were part of my growing up years.
I also derive a great deal of pleasure from horses and dogs… the ocean… and love.

You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.
I am from Brooklyn, NY, so we could not have many pets, but I always had at least two dogs.
Connie Stevens
By the end of my first year at the Dogs, we’d won the competition, and I’d played some pretty good footy.
If you want to get a dog, please adopt. I know a lot of people want these fancy breeds, but I think it’s better to adopt, because there are so many amazing dogs.
Cats, unlike dogs, are independent creatures. They do not need walking and are content to be alone all day, providing they are fed.
I can tell you that I’d rather be kissed by my dogs than by some people I’ve known.
Bob Barker
I’ve always been an animal lover. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life. I think that is what helped me get the role on ‘Lassie’, I was comfortable around the dog, where many of the kids were afraid or intimidated by Lassie.
The point of remaking ‘Straw Dogs’ is not to replicate the philosophies of Sam Peckinpah at all. What made that film singular was the attitude that he brought to the characters. Oddly enough, that’s the one thing that I really wanted to change.
I always love going on a safari drive whenever I visit Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in South Africa. I’ve been fortunate to see so many incredible animals over the years, and each time, it’s completely different. Following Ulusaba’s pack of wild dogs is my highlight.
I am older than everyone I ever knew. All my dogs are d

I am older than everyone I ever knew. All my dogs are dead. Half a dozen cats, parakeets… all gone.
Some people have dogs… I like leaves. I like plants, and I like flowers too. Ecstasy is big in my life.
I like to swim, I like to play with my dogs and I love to eat – but I have to start watching that because my suits are getting too small.
My grandmother, when she was young, would’ve walked past shops where some folks had out a sign that said, ‘No Mexicans or dogs allowed.’
Dogs are a really amazing eye opener for us humans because their lives are compressed into such a short period, so we can see them go from puppyhood to adolescence to strong adulthood and then into their sunset years in 10 to 12 years. It really drives home the point of how finite all our lives are.
John Grogan
There are certain regions in the country where the indigenous people eat dogs.
Jessica Hagedorn
I have the perfect family, but I would not mind having more dogs around me.
Vishnu Vishal
Cat: a pygmy lion who loves mice, hates dogs, and patronizes human beings.
Oliver Herford

I’m at that point in my life where I definitely want to get married soon. I’ve got my dogs as surrogates, but I’m ready for kids.
What we know for sure from our work and from others’ is that mice have a life span of 1,000 days, dogs have 5,000 days, and we humans have 29,000 days. Recognizing that the duration is limited, and aging is inevitable, focus the attention on enhancing the quality of the days you have.
I gave away two dogs years ago because I felt guilty at not being able to give them the time and attention they deserved. I now regularly feed an army of squirrels and wild birds around our house.
The relationships we have with dogs seem simple enough and often are taken for granted. But these relationships can be deep and mysterious, and not at all simple.
You know most of the food that Americans hold so dear – things like hamburgers and hot dogs – were road food, but even before they were road food, they were peasant food.
When I slept it was literally in the midst of an arsenal. If I heard dogs bark more fiercely than usual, or the feet of horses in a greater volume of sound than usual, I stood to arms.
Frank James
Authors all have at least one thing in common, which is that when we finally get finished copies of our books, we get giddy as kindergartners. We touch them constantly, and build towers with them, and take pictures of our cats and dogs reading them.
I’ve removed legs from dogs on the bed of my truck on the farm.
My home is different from my mother’s, because hers is filled with beautiful objects that I was always afraid of breaking. My home is the opposite. Bring on the kids, the dogs, the parties – there’s nothing that’s so important it can’t be broken.
Pigs are smarter than dogs, and both are smarter than Congress.
Shelter dogs are the most loving, wonderful, sweet pets in the world. They understand being rescued, loved, and protected. The hubs and I have 2 rescued 11-yr-old Pomeranians, who adore us.
Faith Hunter
I sail, run dogs, ride horses, play professional poker and tell stories about the stuff I’ve been through. And I’m still a romantic; I still want Bambi to make it out of the fire.
I like my name, but I do share it with a lot of dogs and cats.
Perdita Weeks
I like dogs because they are not humans.
I can do a really good animal impression! I’m great at ducks, cats, dogs, and occasionally dolphins.

I was just an animal lover. Everything that the Sam Sim

I was just an animal lover. Everything that the Sam Simon Foundation does is supposed to help dogs and people – that’s our mission.
Sam Simon
I am surrounded by my family, my beloved grandchildren, and my pack of dogs.
Christine Feehan
I do not believe you can work with animals – certainly you cannot train them – without deciding that if humans have souls, dogs do, too.
At the time of the Revolution, dogs howled day and night all over Russia.
Andrei Platonov
I could do a franchise for the end of everything. ‘The End of Dogs,’ ‘The End of Cats.’
Simon Cowell is trying to get everyone to clone their dogs, and we’ve had our dogs ‘done’ so they can’t have puppies any more. Cloning is like modern day reproducing – reproducing the bits you want.
I would have 55 dogs if I could. I’m hoping one day to open my own shelter.
I had disagreements with all my neighbors about my dogs. I had a disagreement with myself about my dogs. They were noisy.
As a movie fan, I remember Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender and the sort of energy around ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ and the jump from ‘Reservoir Dogs’ to ‘Pulp Fiction,’ and how everybody was stoked on Quentin’s career.
That’s one reason I like hot dogs. Nice and clean. And you can count them as they’re going down.
I like girls who like the countryside, put on walking boots and can bend with the wind a bit. If you’re going to live with me, you need to be able to embrace the countryside and wet dogs.
I walk every day with my dogs and force myself to run a bit but I hate it.
My evenings are usually spent eating cake with tea, which I should stop. Then I either hang with friends or watch something. I like my evenings free because that is when I get to spend time with myself, my dogs or with friends.
I don’t eat vegetables. I only eat food like cheeseburgers, Spam, hot dogs and pizza.
Art Donovan
In Israel, there is this reduction of the political discourse to something that is very limited. It’s as if you have that pitch that only dogs can hear. Sometimes I feel I speak at such a pitch that very few people around me communicate with what I’m saying.
Some of the best casts I’ve ever worked with have been dogs.
I don’t actually like dogs smelling of anything other than natural dogs.
We like to take picnics and sandwiches, driving through the green lanes. My wife loves the house, the dogs, and the animals we have around us, the deer and the fox that comes and pokes his head through the hedge.
I have two dogs, Lottie and Charlie.
Helen George
I love New York, but I wish they wouldn’t put clothes on their dogs.
Ellen Gilchrist
The day I set foot in Hyderabad, I saw an animal being hit by a vehicle. The city did not have a shelter for the bleeding animal, and I brought it home. In less than a month, our house was home to all kinds of animals – a buffalo with a broken hip, a blind mongoose, goats, dogs, cats.
I love kissing. I love kissing my husband, I love kissing my kids, I love kissing my horse. I dont like kissing dogs – I see what they sniff.
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 hug my kids, staff, dogs; that is the way I show my affection. If people don’t understand that, I can’t help it.
Any man who does not like dogs and want them about does not deserve to be in the White House.
My business life takes a big chunk of time, but I still put exercise in my schedule. I’m up at 5 A.M. and get up and stretch and go for a run in Runyon Canyon with all five of my dogs.
Leaders in Africa are so corrupt that we are certain if we put dogs in uniforms and put guns on their shoulders, we’d be hard put to distinguish them.
Since dogs could hear and smell better than men, we could concentrate on sight. Since courage is commonplace in dogs, men’s adrenal glands could shrink. Dogs, by making us more efficient predators, gave us time to think. In short, dogs civilized us.
My dogs are a priority and a big responsibility… but the payoffs are well worth it.
I spend more time with Whisper than I do with anybody else. I chose her when she was three or four days old, I’ve had her since she was nine weeks. She’s a mini Australian cattle dog; cattle dogs need to have a job, and her job is just walking after me.
Just being with dogs, I learned their ways and began to appreciate things from their point of view.
Dogs help so much.

Dogs help so much.
Cats are impossible to work with. They’re just very difficult because you can’t really train them. They’re not really interested in whatever you want them to do. Dogs want to please you; cats only want to please themselves.
My mom cooked pot roast with noodles and frozen vegetables. Or she’d make spaghetti or hot dogs, or heat up TV dinners. Before I started modeling at age 19, I was 5’8″ and weighed 165 pounds.
I was pretty entrepreneurial as a kid. I had a lemonade stand. When I was 12, I arbitraged the price of 7-Eleven hot dogs; I’d buy the ones that are pre-wrapped with the bun and then sell them on the beach.
Parrots, tortoises and redwoods live a longer life than men do; Men a longer life than dogs do; Dogs a longer life than love does.
I grew up in a house with dogs. We always had dogs. We always had a bunch of dogs, actually.
Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.
Elizabeth Taylor
I had the fear of heights when I was young, along with many other fears and phobias, including the fear of dogs, bees, horses, and blood.
I’ve realized through the years that I just find happiness in other things, whether it’s my dogs or my friends or, like, looking at the sunset. So if I were to wish for something else, it would just to be happy all the time, to have a superpower of not letting things affect me, and to be true to who I am, always.
If I’m going to get up on stage to eat hot dogs, I’m not going to do it to get third or fourth.
I think that ‘Straw Dogs’ as a story is eminently re-makable. It can be modernized and Americanized without a problem and without giving up any artistic integrity.
Webster and I are very aloof. The two of us go and sit there by ourselves. I sit by myself in the corner with my book and the newspaper. He kind of runs around a little bit, and then he goes and sits on top of the picnic table. He never plays with other little dogs.
If I wasn’t acting, I’d try and be a footballer. I wouldn’t be a musician because I can’t write my own music. Realistically, I’d probably do something with dogs, like a vet or something. I love animals.
Jamie Blackley
I take my three dogs for long walks every day, and I use that time to talk myself through winning every major competition.
I have gotten so used to my dogs that it is tough to spend a day without them.
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.
I grew up in a small holding in Staffordshire near Tamworth, and we had a few ponies and chickens, ducks and dogs and my mum used to do horse-riding lessons, but we moved to Birmingham when I was 13.
My husband would talk about my volunteer work on his show, and people assumed I was this expert. On a daily basis, they would stop and ask me questions about their dogs.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton cannot write a timeless letter to us from a Birmingham jail or walk, as John Lewis did in 1965, across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., into a maelstrom of police dogs and billy clubs.
What I loved about ‘War Dogs’ was the fact that the tone – turning that story into a spectacular two hour ride is just such a complicated thing to do.
Millennials are always on their phones and it’s running their lives, but you know who is also on their phones? Moms and Dads and also some dogs… everyone is on their phone all the time.
I’m an avid animal lover. When I was 16, I wanted to be a vet or a zookeeper. I grew up with animals. At one time we had between five and eight dogs in the house, with four cats. We’re menagerie people.
When there are dogs and music, people have a good time.
When you have a certain fitness projection, it’s going to give you an advantage. Having strength, stamina and speed is important because I’m working with dogs who can kill me.
Probably the single most important evolutionary trait dogs developed was right there at the outset, illuminated by the campfire. It is in those eyebrows and in the way dogs have of tilting their heads. They are warm packages of emotions.
I just love dogs, and there really is no better companion than an animal.
Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.
Everybody wants a solution on how to help their dogs, but we can’t really see the problem until we reconnect ourselves to our instinctual self.
My favorite thing to do is just stay home with the dogs and read or watch movies and be together.
The accolades don’t nourish me – being with loved ones and my dogs does.
My voice is so high-pitched, only gay dogs can hear it.
When we were scared about 9/11, we federalized the airp

When we were scared about 9/11, we federalized the airport security, we spent millions for body armor for dogs in Ohio. All that over-reaction comes from fear and government – bad combination.
I’ve got two dogs; they’re Boston terriers, and they’re allowed everywhere.
Her secret to happiness was simple and unpretentious. She had a beautiful house, would pick fruit and make jams, run the dogs in the fields, have a whiskey at five o’clock and cook a great plate of pasta. It wasn’t complicated.
My dogs have helped me enjoy things that I wasn’t good at before. They’ve encouraged me to be more active and creative.
If you’re cooking and not making mistakes, you’re not playing outside your safety zone. I don’t expect it all to be good. I have fat dogs because I scrap that stuff out the back door.
Again and again we are confronted with the reality – some might say the problem – of sharing our space with other living things, be they dogs, trees, fish or penguins.
I started at an agency called Intertalent. You copy scripts, you pick up people’s dry cleaning, you take their dogs to the vet, you deliver packages, you do whatever they want you to do.
If a man lets all of my dogs sleep in the bed with us, then that is the most romantic thing. You must love my dogs in order to love me. A man who is nice to my animals and doesn’t shoo them away – well, that’s the height of romance.
I’m an ambassador for Medical Detection dogs.
People say I train dogs, but in many ways I train people.
I never want to be in that stage where a band ends up playing state fairs and casinos. I am not willing to go out shooting up Botox and eating corn dogs while judging pig contests.
I am a glutton. I’ll eat whatever is there. Pizza. I love hot dogs anywhere. I’ve got nothing against any of that. If I feel like eating, I eat. I don’t feel guilty about it at all.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
Like dogs in a wheel, birds in a cage, or squirrels in a chain, ambitious men still climb and climb, with great labor, and incessant anxiety, but never reach the top.
Robert Burton
I dislike cats. I like horses, some monkeys, and sweet dogs that aren’t too aggressive. I used to have a wonderful, big cat, and one day I came into the kitchen and it was on the table, ruining all the food we were about to eat. I was so annoyed that I took it to a friend’s house in the country.
I believed that old people never laughed. I thought they sighed a lot and groaned. They walked with sticks, and they didn’t like children on bicycles or roller skates… or with big dogs.
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.
I have to clean my room and unload the dishwasher, wash the pans, and feed the dogs.
Ivanka is the most amazing mother. I go over there and bring one of my dogs for the kids to play with. We’re just two young women making our way in the world. We sit there in sweatpants and have a glass of wine.
If you call a cat, he may not come. Which doesn’t happen with dogs. They’re different types of animals. Cats are very sexy I think too in the way they move.
By the time I got to ‘St Vincent,’ I had shot so many scenarios I was ready for anything – I’ve shot kangaroos, I’ve shot dogs, cats, crowds, fight scenes, stunts, comedy, drama, handheld, dolly, helicopter, crane – I just felt that there was nothing I was unprepared for.
Dogs are very, very pleasant with people that they’re connected to.
Quite a few of the dogs that come back from Afghanistan or Iraq or police dogs that are involved in violent confrontations where there’s gunfire can in fact exhibit the symptoms and suffer from PTSD.
I have a really great family, and when I’m not filming, I go home and walk the dogs, take out the garbage, clean my room, all that stuff. My family and my friends keep me in line, and make sure I don’t get crazy.
Abigail Breslin
We seriously irritate each other and don’t want to spend any time together. And yet we have a profound respect for the partnership. We’re like a couple of dogs with a rag.
People teach their dogs to sit; it’s a trick. I’ve been sitting my whole life, and a dog has never looked at me as though he thought I was tricky.
One of the great things that playwright A.R. Gurney does in ‘Sylvia’ is he gives language to the emotional gestures and energy that our dogs give to us when they’re communicating.
People’s attitudes have been changing over the past 15 years, but China is still the world’s biggest consumer of dogs.
Jill Robinson
I never minded flying cheap. I always said to myself, ‘Taking this flight saves enough money to rescue four dogs, or six cats, or will let me make a difference to the one woman saving chimps in Cameroon.’
I can’t tell you how many hot dogs I’ve eaten in my life.
My next-door neighbor’s two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration.
After you work out, you have your dog with you. There's

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.
Fergie will sing ballads to the dogs and they’ll sit there rapt. You know your wife’s a star when she keeps the dogs entertained for 20 minutes.
I’m a homebody at heart, and I love to be around my dogs.
‘Lassie’ was amazing. I didn’t have any scenes with humans. There’s a couple little bits, here or there, but mainly just me and my horse and a couple of dogs in the Isle of Man.
While some who downplay Christ’s divinity have imagined Jesus as a great social worker ‘being kind to old ladies, small dogs and little children,’ orthodox Christianity has not wanted Jesus to have a political message.
Dogs in the office are very important.
I have two dogs and a parrot, so they require a lot of attention. They deserve it.
Cassie Steele
My very beloved and deceased third-grade teacher, Cliff Kehod, was the one that I really remember calling me Ike a lot. It just stuck. It is a dog’s name, but I love dogs.
The first film I made was when I was 13 and it was called ‘The Dogs That Ate Detroit.’ It starred my Saint Bernard Barney, and it was a killer thriller with oodles of special effects that were cutting edge for the time.
In the fifties I had dreams about touching a naked woman and she would turn to bronze or the dream about hot dogs chasing donuts through the Lincoln Tunnel.
If dogs could talk, perhaps we would find it as hard to get along with them as we do with people.
Over the years, I’ve always had one Labrador and usually two. I’ve had some great dogs, and I’ve had some dogs that didn’t work out. I found them good homes and gave them away.
I look around my house, and everything except the kids and dogs was made in China. And I’m not sure about the kids. They have brown eyes and small noses.
Dogs get lost hundreds of times and no one ever notices it or sends an account of it to a scientific magazine.
I am quite an early riser – I usually get up between 5.30 and 6am and take the dogs out.
I like being able to go to a local pub and have great food and particularly love pubs that welcome my dogs.
It was every day on the horses and every single race. I was betting on anything; horses, dogs, virtual racing, roulette.
Is the chemical aftertaste the reason why people eat hot dogs, or is it some kind of bonus?
I had to move out of my home in New York when I was 13. I left all my friends, family, my dogs, and summer camp… all that stuff behind. I moved out to L.A. with my mom and brother. That was difficult for me. I think the hardest part was seeing all my friends graduate without me and go to college.
Real men don’t know what they want for Christmas. Despite the fact I’m deeply disappointed every Christmas. I pride myself on not wanting anything. Children want things, women want things, dogs and cats want things, but men don’t.
I’m healthy, have a loving and adorable family, great hunting dogs, a gravity defying musical career and most importantly, fuzzy-headed idiots hate me.
A pet store is a celebration of dogs’ existence and an explosion of options. About cats, a pet store seems to say, ‘Here, we couldn’t think of anything else.’ Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority, but there’s only so much hoopla applicable to them.
I have two beautiful dogs that I cherish.
I love dogs. They live in the moment and don’t care about anything except affection and food. They’re loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated.
I’m not into animal rights. I’m only into animal welfare and health. I’ve been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the ’70s. We’re a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I’ve worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!
But, I do think, on a very simplistic level, that we can project onto dogs because they are so innocent. They don’t come with a lot of baggage.
Kevin Kline
At Lackland Air Force Base, they make an effort to retrain military dogs that suffer from PTSD. It’s a lengthy, long process. The treatment is much the same as it would be for people, but it’s a difficult road back.
We faced police dogs when we fought for justice for Mike Brown in Ferguson in 2014.
The Goose Fair was the cornerstone of the city’s year. The smell of fairs is amazing: deep-fried donuts, hot dogs, the frying of onions. You never wanted to eat all your baby pink candyfloss – it was so sickly sweet – but seeing it made with a stick around the barrel was like magic.
