I try not to wear anything I have to fidget with – there’s nothing worse than wearing something and pulling down the hem and re-adjusting the top. My pet hate is when girls wear those strapless dresses and spend the whole night yanking them up.
I had a big Akita Yoshi who was fabulous. I loved him. We lost him when he was 12 and I’ve never been able to replace him. Normally most people lose a pet and get another and keep going on. But it just felt wrong to me it felt disloyal.
Dogs are my favorite people.
Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole.
Cats have it all – admiration an endless sleep and company only when they want it.
A pet store is a celebration of dogs’ existence and an explosion of options. About cats a pet store seems to say ‘Here we couldn’t think of anything else.’ Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority but there’s only so much hoopla applicable to them.
A kitten is in the animal world what a rosebud is in the garden.
I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
We’ve begun to long for the pitter-patter of little feet – so we bought a dog. Well it’s cheaper and you get more feet.
I poured spot remover on my dog. Now he’s gone.
My roommate got a pet elephant. Then it got lost. It’s in the apartment somewhere.
A dog teaches a boy fidelity perseverance and to turn around three times before lying down.
Dachshunds are ideal dogs for small children as they are already stretched and pulled to such a length that the child cannot do much harm one way or the other.
