Famous quotes containing the words dogs and/or wild:

    Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this because of all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs aren’t like this. A dog’s idea of personal grooming is to roll in a dead fish. Dogs spend their time thinking about doing good deeds for their masters, or sleeping.
    James Gorman (b. 1949)

    He may travel who can subsist on the wild fruits and game of the most cultivated country.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
