Dog Quotations

I love women, but I feel like you can't trust some of them. Some of them are liars, you know? Like I was in the park and I met this girl, she was cute and she had a dog. And I went up to her, we started talking. She told me her dog's name. Then I said, 'Does he bite?' She said, 'No.' And I said, 'Oh yeah? Then how does he eat?' Liar.
Demetri Martin

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Mark Twain

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
Josh Billings

There's a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog. I have to exert myself and really say, oh God, I've got to see my friends 'cause I'm too content being by myself.
Drew Barrymore

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
