C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Dog
 
  Every dog must have his day.
Swift.    
  1
        Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew, and dog will have his day.
Shakespeare.    
  2
        I am his highness’ dog at Kew;
Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?
Pope.    
  3
        Let dogs delight to bark and bite,
  For God hath made them so;
Let bears and lions growl and fight,
  For ’tis their nature to.
Watts.    
  4
        And in that town a dog was found,
  As many dogs there be,
Both mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound,
  And curs of low degree.
Goldsmith.    
  5
        I have a dog of Blenheim birth,
With fine long ears and full of mirth;
And sometimes, running o’er the plain,
  He tumbles on his nose:
But quickly jumping up again
  Like lightning on he goes!
Ruskin.    
  6
        Ay, in the catalogue, ye go for men;
As hounds, and greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, curs,
Shoughs, water-rugs, and demi-wolves, are ’clept
All by the name of dogs: the valued file
Distinguishes the swift, the slow, the subtle,
The housekeeper, the hunter, every one
According to the gift which bounteous nature
Hath in him closed.
Shakespeare.    
  7
        We are two travelers, Roger and I.
Roger’s my dog—come here, you scamp!
Jump for the gentleman—mind your eye!
Over the table—look out for the lamp!
The rogue is growing a little old;
Five years we’ve tramped through wind and weather,
And slept out-doors when nights were cold,
And ate and drank and starved together.
John T. Trowbridge.
