„Grandpa?" Declan raised his eyebrows.
"We keep him in the shed out back," Jack said helpfully. "So he doesn't eat dog brains.“

„If he knew that, said The Hat, it would not impress him. He thinks now to be one with you. An equal. A dog is not your equal…“

—  Clifford D. Simak, Highway of Eternity
Highway of Eternity (1986), Context: He stirred again, halfway between sleep and wakefulness, and he was not alone. Across the fire from him sat, or seemed to sit, a man wrapped in some all-enveloping covering that might have been a cloak, wearing on his head a conical hat that dropped down so far it hid his face. Beside him sat the wolf — the wolf, for Boone was certain that it was the same wolf with which he'd found himself sitting nose to nose when he had wakened the night before. The wolf was smiling at him, and he had never known that a wolf could smile. He stared at the hat. Who are you? What is this about? He spoke in his mind, talking to himself, not really to the hat. He had not spoken aloud for fear of startling the wolf. The Hat replied. It is about the brotherhood of life. Who I am is of no consequence. I am only here to act as an interpreter. An interpreter for whom? For the wolf and you. But the wolf does not talk. No, he does not talk. But he thinks. He is greatly pleased and puzzled. Puzzled I can understand. But pleased? He feels a sameness with you. He senses something in you that reminds him of himself. He puzzles what you are. In time to come, said Boone, he will be one with us. He will become a dog. If he knew that, said The Hat, it would not impress him. He thinks now to be one with you. An equal. A dog is not your equal...

„To be sure, the dog is loyal. But why, on that account, should we take him as an example? He is loyal to man, not to other dogs.“

—  Karl Kraus Czech playwright and publicist 1874 - 1936
Half-Truths and One-And-A-Half Truths (1976), Context: There is no doubt that a dog is loyal. But does that mean we should emulate him? After all, he is loyal to people, not to other dogs. http://books.google.com/books?id=T9V0j2sfPpUC&q=%22there+is+no+doubt+that+a+dog+is+loyal+but+does+that+mean+we+should+emulate+him+after+all+he+is+loyal+to+people+not+to+other+dogs%22&pg=PA109#v=onepage

„[When asked if he could think of a cure for a dog who eats soil]“

—  Noel Fielding British comedian and actor 1973
HermAphroditeZine, Autumn 1999, I'll sleep with her. I’m a special kind of vet - people bring the animals in, and I sleep with them. Do you have any sick animals that need some time with a vet? [...] What I was saying was that I was going to start a vet practice. People would bring me their sick animals and I’d sleep with them. Turtles. Parakeets. I’d give parakeets blow-jobs. I’d go around the zoo, like James Herriot... saying ‘Giraffes? Really? Bring them to me.’

„Like dog that in the garden keepeth ward,
Eating no melons, but allowing none
To eat thereof, he is of all abhorred.“
