“All knowledge, the totality of all questions and answers, is contained in the dog.” So wrote Franz Kafka, and those who cherish man’s best friend will find plenty to enjoy in this appealing, delightfully illustrated compilation. The quotations extend from Shakespeare and Sartre to Groucho Marx and Woodrow Wilson, and range from adoring to amusing.

From the Back Cover:

The Quotable Dog Lover is a treasure trove of the wisest, funniest, and most heartwarming comments ever uttered about our beloved canine friends. From philosophers such as Jean-Paul Sartre to presidents such as Woodrow Wilson, an astonishing array of writers, actors, athletes, and more have had all manner of things to say about our favorite animal - the dog. Here is page after page of poignant observation on the training of dogs, the dog fancy, the joy and wonder dogs bring to our lives, the particularities of breeds, and the loss we feel when a dog has passed away. Each nugget of truth will tug at your heartstrings or set you laughing and nodding in recognition of those doggie deeds (and misdemeanors) familiar to any dog lover.Included in this classic collection are thoughts from such notable dog lovers as: Winston Churchill, T. S. Eliot, Robert Frost, Franz Kafka, Ann Landers, Don Marquis, Willie Morris, Beatrix Potter, Anna Quindlen, James Thurber, Evelyn Waugh, E. B. White, and scores more.The Quotable Dog Lover is the perfect companion for a quiet night in front of the fireplace, a day in the park, or a stroll on the beach. The perfect companion, that is, short of a dog. (5 7/8 X 6 7/8, 300 pages, illustrations)

About the Author:

Patricia M. Sherwood, a longtime copywriter and admirer of dogs, is the editor of An Honest Angler, the collected works of her father, Sparse Grey Hackle. She lives in Windham Center, Connecticut.
