If you can start the day without caffeine;
If you can get going without pep pills;
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles;
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it;
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;
If you can forgive a friend's lack of consideration;
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when,
through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him;
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend;
If you can face the world without lies and deceit;
If you can conquer tension without medical help;
If you can relax without liquor;
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice
against creed or color, religion or politics; then, my friend, you are
almost as good as your dog.;)

I got this doggy book with lots of lovely and very true sayings.
In my eyes this describes a dog perfectly

- come to fill up the void left by false and narrow-hearted friends.
I see already that he is without envy, hatred, or malice that he will betray no secrets, and feel neither pain at my success nor pleasure in my chagrin.

Your dog never knows that you have been mean or jealous or grasping. It encourages you to be kind, and when you respond, it loves you.

My favourite
He is your friend your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
