"Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in."

"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."

"When a man's dog turns against him it is time for a wife to pack her trunk and go home to mama."

Mark Twain

Ain't that the truth. A heaven full of dogs if preferable to a heaven full of people.

Dogs are loyal to a fault, and unfailingly render unconditional love. They are nothing like people at all as far as I can see.

I always know what my dog is thinking: So: what else do you have for me to eat? (He’s a beagle, and damned lucky he’s cute).

“Dogs (not chimps) most like humans”

This is why God gave man dogs as a companion and not Chimps or any primate for that matter. With rare exceptions, chimps do not make good pets.

But who says people really are social animals?

Dogs may be man at this best, but chimps -- or even cats -- may be more like we really are.

I always liked what Churchill said:

I like swine.

Dogs look up to us.

Cats look down on us.

Pigs treat us as equals.

My dog woke me up this morning 3 minutes after the alarm failed to ring. How did he know it was a weekday?

My dog is so human it’s scary sometimes. Not all good by the way - he can be plenty annoying - just like a lot of humans :)

If it’s really Heaven, and you’re good enough to get in, you can order what you like. Except people.
