I found out from a man I met while at Straight Music Company that my dog Bambi has min pin in his blood. They are known as the King of Toys. Truer words I’ve never heard.
“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.”
“Be prepared. A dog is adorable and noble. A dog is a true and loving friend. A dog is also a hedonist.”
“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?”
Throughout the barbaric witch trials of the 16th and 17th centuries, a large number of innocent people were accused of witchcraft and condemned to death. Possession of an “animal familiar,” considered to be a symbol of Satan, was used as evidence of their guilt. The accused were most often elderly and socially isolated women who kept animals for companionship. – Pedigree.com The Evolution of Pet Ownership
