Dog Law

Hey you guys, just today I finished reading a good book about canine legislature. Its called Dog Law by Mary Randolph. It was easy to read and easy to understand with all the examples they give. Of course legislation vary from city to city (county, state, etc) but gives you an overall idea of what laws for dogs generally encompass. I learned A LOT from this book and really reccomend it for you guys

Also found a quote in it that I really liked, here it is:

The best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son and daughter that he has reared with loving care may become ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with out happiness and our good name may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him when he may need it most. Man's reputation may be sacrified in a moment of ill consdered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees and do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our head. The only absolutely unselfish friend a man may have is this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and poverty, in health and sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, when the wintery winds blow and the snow drives fiercely if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He gaurds the sleep of a pauper as if he were a prince.

When all other friends desert, he reamins. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constanct in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast into the cold, firendless and homeles, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than to accompanying him to gaurd him against danger, to fight against his enemies and when the last scene of all comes, and death takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws and eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death."-Vest
