"I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source."

                  Doris Day

"Dogs are the closest we come to knowing the divine love of God on this side of eternity.  They love me all the time, no matter what.  Their love, companionship and loyalty are why I have such deep faith in God.  They are God's love in cute, chubby bodies.  Dogs are umbilical.  Dogs are first responders.  Dogs never betray you or hurt your feelings."
