A Dictionary of Quotations and Proverbs About Cats and Dogs
About the Book
At least sixty million people in America share their lives today with a pet cat or dog. Or cat and dog! Since prehistoric times, both cats and dogs have served as guardians, assistants, and friends. From purebreds to strays, cats and dogs are beloved members of families, providers of unconditional affection, and a source of philosophical rumination—or one-liner gags.
This is a collection of more than 2,000 memorable proverbs and quotes from history, literature, and film. Ranging from ancient to modern and humorous to serious, these sayings cover the gamut of human relationships with these beloved four legged “family members.” Appropriate for speakers, writers, and all pet lovers, this quotations dictionary is arranged alphabetically by main topic and indexed by keyword, subject and author.
