We want to thank our friend, Rowena over at Beyond the Flow for nominating us to participate in the 3-Day Quote Challenge. Mom thought about it for about 87 seconds and then realized it could be a very cool way to check out some pawsome quotes by uprights about dogs.
Hi there, Sam here. Poor little Elsa was a little overwhelmed at all the nice things every one said to her yesterday so I said I got this one, li’l sis [appaws…graciously accepted here]. As her big brother, I just want to say many thanks for all your kind words. It means the world to mom who is absolutely rabid about spreading the word on the horrors of puppy mills.
So back to the quote challenge. Here’s the first quote mom found that made her smile. Dave Barry is a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist of whom we are big fans. We had gone to a large park in the city a while ago and took some photos of me in the gorgeous autumn light. I’m not prone to cocking my head very often, so she started making all these goofy noises and flapping her
wings paws to catch my attention with the hopes of capturing a pic like this one. My thought was “WTH” is wrong with that woman? I have never been so embarrassed to see everyone in the park looking at her like she had lost her marbles. A dignified dog like myself has to maintain a certain level of decorum and poise and mom just blew my whole ‘cool dude’ reputation. Now I know how teenagers feel when their pawrents say or do something totally weird [insert eye roll here]. My mom…I think I’ll keep her. “You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!’” — Dave Barry
Ever say anything ‘foolish’ to your dog? What was his reaction?
Live, love, bark! <3
