[ Also see Animals Cats Fidelity Hounds Mammals ]

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate in their object-relations.
      - Sigmund Freud

And in that town a dog was found,
  As many dogs there be,
    Both mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound,
      And curs of low degree.

Young blood must have its course, lad, and every dog its day.
      - Charles Kingsley

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
  From men and women to fill our day;
    But when we are certain of sorrow in store
      Why do we always arrange for more?
        Brothers and sisters I bid you beware
          Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
      - Rudyard Kipling, The Power of the Dog

The more I see the representatives of the people, the more I love my dogs.

        French Proverbs, 13th century

Barking dogs occasionally bite, but laughing men hardly ever shoot.
      - Konrad Zacharias Lorenz

But in come canine Paradise
  Your wraith, I know, rebukes the moon,
    And quarters every plain and hill,
      Seeking its master. . . . As for me
        This prayer at least the gods fulfill
          That when I pass the flood and see
            Old Charon by Stygian coast
              Take toll of all the shades who land,
                Your little, faithful barking ghost
                  May leap to lick my phantom hand.
      - St. John Welles Lucas, To a Dog

The biggest dog has been a pup.
      - Joaquin Miller (pseudonym of Cincinnatus Hiner Miller)

Whosoever loveth me loveth my hound.

I am his Highness' dog at Kew;
  Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?
      - Alexander Pope,
        Epigrams--On the Collar of a Dog

To be, contents his natural desire,
  He asks no angel's wing, no seraph's fire;
    But thinks, admitted to that equal sky,
      His faithful dog shall bear him company.
        Go wiser thou! and in thy scale of sense
          Weigh thy opinion against Providence.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. I, l. 109)

Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.

        De Rebus Gestis Alexandri Magni
         (VII, 14)

I have a dog of Blenheim birth,
  With fine long ears and full of mirth;
    And sometimes, running o'er the plain,
      He tumbles on his nose:
        But quickly jumping up again,
          Like lightning on he goes!
      - John Ruskin, My Dog Dash

Ay, in the catalogue ye go for men;
  As hounds, and greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, curs,
    Shoughs, water-rugs, and demi-wolves, are 'clept
      All by the name of dogs: the valued file
        Distinguishes the swift, the slow, the subtle,
          The housekeeper, the hunter, every one
            According to the gift which bounteous nature
              Hath in him closed.
      - William Shakespeare

The little dogs and all,
  Tray, Blanch, and Sweetheart--see, they bark at me.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear

Thou hast seen a farmer's dog bark at a beggar? . . . And the creature run from the cur. There thou mightst behold the great image of authority--a dog's obeyed in office.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at IV, vi)

Every dog must have his day.
      - Jonathan Swift
