Man's Best Friend

This is one of my favorites - I'm a dog lover, have been all my life, and this old saying is just as clear to me as anything I've ever heard.

Short, sweet and to the point!

What Do Dogs Know?
by: Lora

So funny that you should bring this up. Just yesterday I was saying the very same thing.

I have an Old English Sheepdog that is very protective, yet still extremely friendly.

I have folks come and go around here, like repair guys, chimney sweeps, and so on, and my dog is absolutely fine with them - after she is through announcing their presence.

But there is a neighbor that stops by a couple times a month and my dog will not let this guy in the house! She sounds very scary, and we have to go outside to talk to him.

I don't know what it could be or why she says, "No way is this guy allowed in the house!" I do think he is a "nice" guy, but...

Maybe my dog knows something I don't, and I'm not one to argue with my best friend.

PS
That is one cute pup in your photo!

don't discount your dogs senses...
by: Debbie, http://www.pedigreedpups.com

Dog are a lot smarter than we give them credit for - and being a master of body language they'll know someone's intent long before we ever will.

I hope to always enjoy the company of a fuzzy friend as long as I'm here ..... and if you happen to need more dog info maybe you'd like to check out:

This is soooo true. Dogs do possess a higher degree of intuition.

Second guessing it
by: Anonymous

This bothers me because I love dogs and I have my whole life in fact I have two dogs.
The reason this bothers me is because I met up with a dog that doesn't like me for some reason.
I put my palm up and let him sniff me and he snapped at me. This is something that has never happened to me before. Our friends got a new dog from the humane society and all they could tell her about it was that he was a runner.
That dog would look at me and growl like he just hated me and I don't know why. I really irritated him for some reason.
So that quote doesn't fit me because I think I'm a pretty nice person.

who may have said this?
by: dixie lee Ducote

I don't know know this to be true, but other than the obvious guess of Mark Twain or even Dorothy Parker, this really does sound like one from Will Rogers, or, my Pappy! He was born 1894, taught Eng Lit @ an Ohio Unv., moved to central coastal Cal & became a rancher w/ rough worn hands, gentle wisdom & a twinkle in his eye. Dogs loved him!)

Not sure I agree with this quote
by: Anonymous

I have always agreed with this up until I met my friends dog. I am a cat person but have had dogs in my life, as well as horses. My friends dog will bark at my car from the gate, right up the driveway, me getting out the car, I have to stand still and let her sniff me and then its still not okay. She will let me inside the house but under her watchful eye. She seems fine with other folk who are more "doggy". I think I am really a lovely person with no ill intent so bang goes this theory as I do not intend to do anyone any harm. I am a lightworker...so may have some spooks around me :-)
