To honor the bond between women and their canine companions, we’ve compiled a collection of the best quotes about dogs alongside photos of some of our proud Woman’s Best Friend Project partners.
“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
“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”Orhan Pamuk
“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.”Gilda Radner
“The love of a dog is a pure thing. He gives you a trust which is total. You must not betray it.”Michel Houellebecq
The Woman’s Best Friend Project is a coffee table book that tells the stories of the bonds between women and their canine companions. Many of these quotes reflect the same feelings of unconditional love and loyalty held by the women that participated in the project.
“Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.”Jon Katz
“Everybody should have a shelter dog. It’s good for the soul.”Paul Shaffer
The Woman’s Best Friend Coffee Table Book sets out to eradicate stigmas associated with anxiety, depression, grief and breed descrimination by telling the beautiful stories of 42 women and faithful dogs.
“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.”Christopher Morley
“It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”John Grogan
“Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.”Dean Koontz
“The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.”Konrad Lorenz
“Dogs have boundless enthusiasm but no sense of shame. I should have a dog as a life coach.”Moby
“A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad.”Robert Wagner

“The dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”Robert Falcon Scott
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.”Milan Kundera
“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”Will Rogers
