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 His Highness' dog at Kew;

Pray tell me sir, whose dog are you?

Attributed to: Alexander Pope (1688-1744), English poet.


NOTE: This quotation appeared on the collar of a dog given to Frederick, Prince of Wales.

Royal dog watchers will be pleased to know that someone is keeping an eye on these famous four-legged creatures. See Margaret Weatherford's article on majestic mutts and their monarchical masters at: http://www.etoile.co.uk/Columns/Margaret/051204.html
