Quotes from the Dog Pound

Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog.

Douglas Mallock

I would look at a dog and when our eyes met, I realized that the dog and all creatures are my family. They're like you and me.

Ziggy Marley

Isn't it wonderful how dogs can win friends and influence people without ever reading a book.
