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, in honor of the "Year of the Dog", follows herewith:

"I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on

Attributed to: Winston Churchill (1874-1965, British statesman and author) by M. Gilbert in Never Despair (1988).

Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic: A Pearls Before Swine Collection" by Stephan Pastis - See:
