  1. These are all great quotes, thanks for sharing. The one resonating with me most right now is the one from Dean Koontz. He’s a great writer & a very wise man. We know the inevitable pain of loss will come but the emptiness of not having a dog in our lives at all is even worse.

  2. One of my Cockers speaks I love you to me. It is absolutely adorable. I know my dogs love me so unconditionally, but having them say it is amazing. My heart beats dog as Carol Bryant coined the phrase.
