Dog Quotations

I had a photo of Bentley blown up to poster-size and added this quotation from Milan Kundera. It hangs in my office where I can see Bentley everyday.

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.

~ Milan Kundera ~
