I was surfing on the internet yesterday and happened to find a site with quotes about dogs. After reading them, it made me want to rush home and give my dog a hug.

    The dog quotes are really cool. I've got a dog at home too and I seriously can't imagine my life without dogs. It wouldn't seem right at all :P
