1. Puppies can’t control their bladders overnight until they are at least four months old. Until then, cover the floor around the puppy’s bed with newspapers.

2. Dogs are omnivorous. They need more than just meat to flourish.

3. People with more than one dog shouldn’t try to treat them all as equals. Because pack position is important to a dog, this only encourages jealousy games.

Dog Poetry

Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog

Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who
possessed Beauty without Vanity,

Strength without Insolence,

Courage without Ferocity,
and all the Virtues of Man,

without his Vices.

This Praise, which would be unmeaning
Flattery if inscribed over human
ashes is but a just tribute to the Memory
of Boatswain,a Dog.

Lord Byron


Epitaph to a Dog
