For the Love of Dogs


The Truth about Dogs
Dogs are truly remarkable animals.  They don’t hold grudges, they live their lives trying to please us, and instinctively know when we need a silent friend beside us.  My dogs have brought me joy, love, laughs, and a reason to smile every day.  They have also been the inspiration for my two books.  Some of the most serious people turn into completely different people when they are with their dogs.  I decided to feature some great dog quotes on today’s blog.  I hope that you enjoy them and give your best friend an extra belly rub.  Be sure to watch the video “So God Made a Dog” under Pet Tips of the Day at the bottom of my blog.
