The cutest and funniest quotes and sayings about dogs. “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.”

You don’t have to be a dog owner to simply adore them. Maybe you don’t like keeping animals inside your house — dog hair can indeed be a headache — but that doesn’t mean you’ll say “no” to a dog’s affection. There is no such thing as an average dog. If you give them the chance, you’ll have no choice but to sit there and let them love you.

Dogs are considered man’s best friend for good reason. They are loyal, they will protect you, and they will be there for you no matter what you’re going through. Anyone who’s had a wonderful dog as a pet will attest to how strong their silent, devoted companionship really is. We’re just humans and yet, a dog’s admiration can lift our spirits right when we need it most.

Many dog lovers will agree that because of how a dog makes us feel, they are an endless source of happiness and provide a very special friendship. A dog teaches us what it means to love unconditionally. Regardless of their size or breed, a tail wag or warm puppy cuddles are enough to put anyone in a better mood.

Quotes about dogs may not be enough to do our puppies justice, but they paint a lovely picture of the types of companions dogs can be. Now, your furry friend won’t be able to actually read the dog quotes that we have prepared for you, but you can. Take your dog out for a walk, take a picture of him and post it along with your favorite dog quote from the list below.

Dog Love Quotes To Cherish Your Best Friend

A dog doesn’t care where you live, how you look or how much money you make. All it asks for is your love and some occasional belly rubs and treats. A dog’s love is unconditional. If you ask me, dogs are beautiful creatures with even more beautiful souls.

Not everyone deserves one as not every dog owner will treat their pet as they should. But in spite of that, the dog will still love his master. It will still follow them anywhere and do whatever it takes for their master to love them back.

Enjoy our list of dog best friend quotes.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.

Actually, my dog I think is the only person who consistently loves me all the time.  

H. G. BISSINGER

My main characters are the most sunny, happy, optimistic, loving creatures on the face of the Earth. I couldn’t be happier that’s where I start. I can put as many flawed people in the dog’s world as I like, but the dog doesn’t care. Dog doesn’t judge, dog doesn’t dislike. Dog loves. That’s not so bad.  

BRUCE CAMERON

Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.

We can learn a lot from dogs. They set the bar exceptionally high when it comes to how we should treat others. Dogs set the example for loving someone no matter what. They are simple creatures; all they want is to spend time with us. Dogs teach children responsibility, and they teach adults how to let loose. No one can list all the life lessons that can be learned from dogs, but these quotes are a good start.

A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad.

ROBERT WAGNER

Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.

CAROLINE KNAPP

Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big.   

ERICA JONG

A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.

Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he’s owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes.  

GENE HILL

The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

MARK TWAIN

You can usually tell that a man is good if he has a dog who loves him.

There’s nothing quite like the look a dog gives you. Whether it’s the sad puppy eyes when they’re trying to get a treat or go for a walk, or the excitement they can’t contain when you come home, a dog’s admiration is unlike any other. Maybe it’s because they can’t lie, maybe it’s because they’re innocent, but regardless the reason, the way a dog loves its owner will warm anyone’s heart.

No matter how you’re feeling, a little dog gonna love you.  

WAKA FLOCKA FLAME

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.

Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts.

Loss Of A Dog Quotes

Sadly, these beautiful creatures don’t live forever. Once they pass away, they leave their owners with a broken heart — losing a dog can be an excruciating experience.

If you’ve ever lost a furry friend, we hope that the following dog passing quotes will give you some sort of comfort, even if only temporarily.

It’s hard to think that your buddy will no longer be there to welcome you the moment you step inside your house. Nothing can replace the happiness in their eyes when they see you entering a room. Of course, you can always adopt another puppy, but your old buddy will forever remain in your heart.

Here are a few loss of a dog quotes for those who’ve lost their furry best friend.

If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness.  

MARJORIE GARBER

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.  

WILL ROGERS

Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.  

JOHN GALSWORTHY

Dogs die. But dogs live, too. Right up until they die, they live. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us, and make our lives a little brighter, and they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.  

DAN GEMEINHART

I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time?  

SIR WALTER SCOTT

To call him a dog hardly seems to do him justice, though inasmuch as he had four legs, a tail, and barked, I admit he was, to all outward appearances. But to those who knew him well, he was a perfect gentleman.  

HERMIONE GINGOLD

Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.

Dogs are extremely funny, it’s like they’re natural born comedians. They can make you laugh even when they make a mess, roll over in dirt, or drink water from the toilet. Yes, some do that too, and you can’t stay mad at them. You just can’t, even if you want to. They’ll make all your anger disappear once they look at you with those big, innocent eyes.

They’re playful and clumsy even when they are trying to be serious and we can’t resist those wagging tails. These joyful balls of fur simply make our lives better.

With that in mind, we have selected some of the funniest dog quotes that will definitely brighten up your day.

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.  

CHRISTOPHER MORLEY

Anybody who doesn’t know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.  

FRANKLIN P. JONES

What do dogs do on their day off? Can’t lie around  that’s their job.  

GEORGE CARLIN

I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.  

JOHN STEINBECK

Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.  

GROUCHO MARX

I don’t think twice about picking up my dog’s poop, but if another dog’s poop is next to it, I think, ‘Eww, dog poop!’ 

JONAH GOLDBERG

My cats inspire me daily. They inspire me to get a dog!

Cute Dog Quotes

All dogs are cute because it’s in their nature to be so — whether they’re those tiny ones that look like living toys or those big ones that might scare you at first.

Even the scariest looking breeds can be cute, it all depends on how they were raised; and even then, there’s almost always a playful, softy somewhere in there. I almost froze when a Doberman started running towards me. It turns out he only wanted a play mate.

It’s sad that no matter how hard we try, humans haven’t yet reached that level of loyalty and friendship that dogs have. We still have a lot to learn from our buddies. Meanwhile, read our compilation of cute and heart-melting dog quotes and become the best friend your dog can have.

All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.  

CHARLES M SCHULZ

Dog is God spelled backward.  

DUANE CHAPMAN

I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross, and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.  

MARK HADDON

Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.  

KINKY FRIEDMAN

You can tell by the kindness of a dog how a human should be.

The dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.  

ROBERT FALCON SCOTT

Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.

ORHAN PAMUK

Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.  

CAROLINE KNAPP
