I am a Quote~aholic

   Welcome to Thoughtless Thursday on the Bayou!  I am joining my friends Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a Husky for a take-it-easy blog post.  I have been busy trying to get my business cards, media kit, and Flat Pet ready for the BlogPaws conference.  It is coming up so quickly!  I’ll be ready to order everything tomorrow.  I'm visiting everyone’s blog, but I have tried to refrain from leaving too many comments.  I always hate just visiting and not saying hello.  I’ll be back to leaving more messages as I get more of my MUST DO list checked off so I can relax.  Just know that I am visiting!
   You may not be surprised for me to admit that I am a quote-aholic.  I love the quotes on my sidebar.  I can spend hours reading quotes.  I think it stemmed from my 6th grade teacher.  She made us memorize a quote every week and I became addicted to them.  Today as a thoughtless post, I decided to share some of my favorite dog quotes with you.

I always say, the time you spend with your dog makes the difference in a great dog or a crate dog.  ~ Faith Fullilove ~ The Returns

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

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.  ~ Will Rogers

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.  ~ Ben Williams

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.  ~ Josh Billings

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.  ~ Andy Rooney

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare, and love
 we can spare.  In return, dogs give us their all.  It’s the best
 deal man has ever made.  ~ M. Acklam

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love with hate.  ~ Sigmund Freud

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.  ~ Robert Benchley

Anybody who doesn’t know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.  ~ Franklin P. Jones

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’re not getting enough exercise.  ~ Unknown

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

 Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole.  ~ Roger Caras

If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.  ~ Phil Pastoret

My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog already thinks I am.  ~ Unknown

Dogs laugh but they laugh with their tails.  ~ Max Eastman

A dog is not “almost human” and I know of no great insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.  ~John Holmes

Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.  ~ Karen Davison

I appreciate our wonderful hosts for this Thoughtless Thursday Blog Hop!
Take the time to visit these other blogs to see what’s up with them. 

Have a great day and come back to see us tomorrow!


  1. Wow! I can see you love your quotes! But they're all lovely quotes, and true.

    Earl and I.

  2. We enjoy reading quotes, but don't hunt them down. I guess I will need to take a photo will flat Bentley. Poor Bentley, I know how he must be feeling having to stay home and be replaced with his flat self...that was me last year.

  3. Awesome quotes! (especially the great dog vs. crate dog!) Happy Thursday!!!


  4. Great quotes! Some I had heard, some I hadn't. I think the M. Acklam one is my favorite. I always feel bad when I get so busy I don't have time to leave comments on everyone's blogs, but sometimes it's just impossible. For anyone that follows their stats it helps to just get a visit to the page too (at least that's what I tell myself). :)

  5. Love your quotes! I love good quotes myself ....perhaps not as much as you!!! haha!
    I have seen some of those on fb, some are new to me though. Love it!
    Thanks for linking up with us!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  6. I have been collecting quotes since I was in High School. I am also a "Quote addict" I bought a book years and years ago called, "10,000 Quips and Quotes"...if it is still available, purchase will have a FIELD DAY!

  7. I love the John Holmes quote. My favorite source of quotes is my favorite author, Mark Twain, he has some great animal quotes. My favorite "Heaven goes by favor not by merit, if it went by merit you would stay out and your dog would go in." I may have botched that a bit, also if htere is a heaven dogs are definitely in it

  8. Oooh, some of those are our favorites too! I always love the one by Mark Twain. Have fun with your MUST DO list!

  9. Nice quotes! I don't think I have heard some of them before.

  10. Great quotes! Man, you're really planning heavy duty for BlogPaws! I already have business cards, but no media kit or flat pet. Walking four flat pets would make me feel a little awkward... I hope I run into you there!

  11. I'm with you I love quotes and poems. I try to incorporate one into Nothing But Norman. I love that Video and have shared it also, it's such a stunning video never tire from watching it.
