Earlier this week we posted 10 Great Cat Quotes in honor of our feline friends. To be sure that our canine companions didn’t feel left out, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite dog quotes to share as well. From Fido, to Spot, and every purebred and mutt in between, we’ve all heard that dog is man’s best friend. We even featured Ol’ Yeller in our blog post about rabies. So take a moment to read through these great quotes, smile, laugh, oh…and of course, hug your dog!
