Motivational Moment for Misguided Masters & Mutts

Compiled by Hugo Hotagen, DDD (Duke of Doorknobs & Doghouses), a loyal lapdog-in-training apprenticed to the affable, agnostic and all-round air-headed Court of the Quipping Queen.

A quirky, quizzical and sometimes questionable quotidian quotation or two, in honor of the "Year of the Dog", follows herewith:

"We don't have to think up a title till we get the doggone book written." (Carl Sandburg, 1878-1967, American poet)

"I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me."
Gore, U.S. Politician)

"Doggone Life - Fighting like cats and dogs!"


There are 1,330,000 web pages devoted to the word "doggone" -- a handy euphemism for that ever popular profanity: "damn".
