January is National Train Your Dog Month.
Many of us love and own dogs. Dogs are perhaps America’s favorite pet. They serve as defenders, family members, friends, helpers and maybe even psychiatrists (though we might not admit it). Dogs offer us something increasingly rare in this world . . . unconditional love and loyalty. As a tribute to our canine companions here is a collection of quotes from various dog lovers:
“The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.”— Anonymous

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”— American wildlife photographer, writer and TV personality Roger Caras
“All knowledge, the totality of all questions and all answers is contained in the dog.”— author Franz Kafka
“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.”—actress Gilda Radner
