Thought for the Day:

" It is a truism to say that the dog is largely what his master makes of him:  he can be savage and dangerous, untrustworthy, cringing, and fearful, or he can be faithful and loyal, courageous, and the best of companions and allies." - R. Fiennes and A. Fiennes,
The Natural History of the Dog
