      Great dog quotes! I like Groucho Marx's dog quote, too: âOutside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.â

      Wonderful quotes, love it. My aunt used to have a poodle that would jump onto your lap and lie down, but heaven help you if you went to stroke it, because it would snarl and snap and try to take your hand off. Nicely done, enjoyed my visit, blessed.

      because he will be our friend

      for always and always and always.'" - Rudyard Kipling
