Why Do Dogs Have So Many Friends?

Since dogs don’t tell lies, are loyal and give love and affection unreservedly it’s hardly surprising that humans like them so much – maybe there’s a lesson for us all there: be more dog-like and become a nicer person!

Also this is an excuse for me to post some great dog quotations, feel free to add your own in the Comments section.
