9780786408016: A Dictionary of Quotations and Proverbs about Cats and Dogs

At least sixty million people in America share their lives today with a pet cat or dog. Or cat and dog! Since prehistoric times, both cats and dogs have served as guardians, assistants, and friends. From purebreds to strays, cats and dogs are beloved members of families, providers of unconditional affection, and a source of philosophical rumination-or one-liner gags. This is a collection of over 2,000 memorable proverbs and quotes from history, literature, and film. Ranging from ancient to modern and humorous to serious, these sayings cover the gamut of human relationships with these beloved four legged "family members." Appropriate for speakers, writers, and all pet lovers, this quotations dictionary is arranged alphabetically by main topic and indexed by keyword, subject and author.

Review:

Isn't it wonderful when a book is both entertaining and useful? In A Dictionary of Quotations and Proverbs about Cats and Dogs, you'll find plenty of wise and whimsical words concerning our fluffy friends, all arranged and indexed in a thoroughly professional manner. Students, teachers, writers, and speakers will find this book earns its keep, while animal lovers will appreciate the collection for the variety of subjects and sheer entertainment value it provides.

Some old proverbs seem fairly mysterious, such as "singing cats and whistling girls will come to a bad end," while others, like "a man's best friend is his dog, even better than his wife," concern topics that some of us may think of on a regular basis. Some more recently coined quotes are sure to bring smiles; haven't we all experienced a version of "a dog is a dog except when he is facing you. Then he is Mr. Dog."

Entries are arranged alphabetically by topic, beginning with "action," moving through to "wrong," with plenty of stops along the way. You'll find everything from God to witches, ears to tail, and gentlemen to jealousy. The indexes can be of particular use when searching for specifics: one is arranged by keyword, another by author. Many of the proverbs are anonymous, so these have been conveniently separated by nation or religion of origin. Whenever the exact source is known, you'll find author; the particular book, song, or poem the lines came from; and the publication date. Whether your ultimate aim is a mural at the animal shelter, a new needlepoint pillow, or adding a little spice to your research paper, you're sure to find a perfect quotation in this comprehensive book. --Jill Lightner
