If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you.
This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
Mark Twain (1835 1910), U.S. author. Pudd’nhead Wilson, ch. 16, “Pudd’nhead Wilson’s Calendar” (1894).
If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perserverence and to turn around three times before lying down.
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.
You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, “Wow, you’re right! I never would have thought of that!”
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from the grocery store with the most amazing haul—chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters on earth!
If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
The average dog is nicer than the average person.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
Samuel Butler (1835 1902), English author. Note-books, “Higgledy-Piggledy” (1912).
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

No its not Portugal although you could be excused for wondering thanks to those wonderful wavy mosaic plazas. This is from one of its former colonies – Macau.
There’s a strong Portuguese and Roman influence as a result in this Far Eastern nation.
And don’t forget the Spanish who governed this nation for 60 years.
