Wordful Wednesday - For the Pet Lover's Soul

This week I've been reading Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. The stories are so inspirational, and there are some quotes in this book that really touched me. So, I had to share them.

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." Chief Seattle

"I wish people would realize that animals are totally dependent, helpless, like children; a trust that is put upon us." James Herriot

"No matter how little money you have and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich." Louis Sabin

"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made." Roger Caras

I like this quote.....our chihuahua is our baby. It about kills us to leave him for long periods at a time. We get a baby sitter if we are going to be out all day!

Those quotes are SO true! We have two dogs, Bella and Maddie. They've become such an important part of our family...I'd be lost without them!

I read that same book. Cried all the way though it.
My critters, big and small, are my babies.

My wieners mean the world to me. Some people just don't get it but the ones that do are the ones that matter.

I love these quotes. It is so true. Dogs really do give their all to their owners. We are the center of their world. Thank you for the reminder to give my doggy a big hug :)
