My imagination went on hiatus again. So, a post of some favorite dog related quotes and portraits I just shot & processed of the dogs will have to suffice until menopause allows my brain to function again.
I am estimating it may be around 2017.
We have not to gain his confidence or his
friendship: he is born our friend; while
his eyes are still closed, already he believes
in us: even before his birth, he has given
himself to man.
~Maurice Maeterlinck from "My Dog"
"The dog is a saint. He is straightforward and
honest by nature. He knows by instinct when
he is not wanted; lies quite still for hours
when his king is hard at work. But when his
king is sad and worried he creeps up and lays
his head on his lap. 'Don't worry. Never
mind if they all abandon you.
Let us go for a walk and forget all about it!'"
Humankind is drawn to dogs because they
are so like ourselves - bumbling, affectionate,
confused, easily disappointed, eager
to be amused, grateful for kindness and
the least attention."
~Pam Brown, b. 1928
"He is very imprudent, a dog is. He never
makes it his business to inquire whether you
are in the right or in the wrong, never bothers
as to whether you are going up or down upon
life's ladder, never asks whether you are rich or
poor, silly or wise, sinner or saint. Come luck
or misfortune, good repute or bad, honor or
shame, he is going to stick to you, to comfort
you, guard you, and give his life for you..."
~Jerome K. Jerome
"Dogs, bless them, operate on the premise
that human beings are fragile and require
incessant applications of affection and
reassurance. The random lick of the hand and
the furry chin draped over the instep are
calculated to let the shaky owner know that a
friend is nearby."
"The average dog has one request to all humankind.
