"It is natural that we should like to have dogs about us; their
enthusiasm for play, their excitement over things in general, their
appreciation of creature comforts, are all part of their lovableness;
the unnecessary discomfort and dullness, the fear and the pain which too
often fall to their lot are a travesty of what life could be for them.
The joy of giving unselfish affection is one which dogs share with the
best of men and women."
-"Lesser Lives" (published 1937)
