If all the beasts were gone, men would die from loneliness of spirit.
For whatever happens to the beasts happens to man. 
All things are connected..."
Chief Seattle ~

•"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. 
He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his
reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; 
by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry
when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, 
he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores
; it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. 
He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and 
a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can 
heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.
He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have. He is just my dog."

•"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of there universe. We are the focus of their love
and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made."

•He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be 
yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." 

•"The little furry buggers are just deep, deep wells you throw all your emotions into."
