Let’s take a little break from business today and talk about one of my favorite topics – dogs.

Many years ago my Godson gave me a little book called “Are You As Happy As Your Dog?”. I’ve read that little rascal dozens of times. If you don’t have it, get it. It has some of life’s great lessons and can be read in less than an hour.

But until you can get a copy, here are some of the reasons dogs have so many friends. Another bunch of great life lessons.

Enjoy them. I’m going to lay on the floor and get covered by my seven dogs…

This Is Why Dogs Have So Many Friends

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
-Ann Landers

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.

-Sigmund Freud

If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
-James Thurber

If your dog is fat, you aren’t getting enough exercise.

Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul — chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters on earth!
-Anne Tyler

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-Mark Twain

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!’

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

    My two Boston Terriers are napping here in my office until the rain stops and they can get back outside to chase squirrels.

    Makes me want to go home and cuddle with my black lab, Sasha.

    Being a cat person myself, though I have got nothing against dogs, these quotations are really nice.Will twit some of these with appropriate credit.

    Thanks so much Paul for the wonderful and insightful quotes!

    I just gave my 15 month old Goldendoodle “Goldie” a great big hug.
