Man's Best Friend?








"Outside of a dog, a man’s best friend is a book. 

Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read."

Groucho Marx


 This quote always makes me smile. 



I'm sharing tight writing tips at Susan J. Reinhardt's blog.


If you have a minute, stop by and see us!




Are dogs or books your best friend? 


Happy reading and writing,

Karen  :)

  3. Sorry all - the link is now fixed! Thanks for your patience! :)

    Natalie,
    A dog really can be a great companion, can't it? So glad you have a faithful furry friend!

    Alex,
    This particular dog belongs to my son. Dashiell (Dash for short) is his name. :)

    Susan,
    I love this quote too. :) Have fun dog sitting!

    Happy reading and writing,

  4. Hi Karen! I'm allergic to dogs, so even dogs like my son's (who is a sweetie) I don't let get too close.
    I'll go with books every time!
    Hopping over to your guest post now :)

  5. Well, I'm a dog lover AND a book lover, so you hit me in both places with this post! :)

  6. Ceil,
    Books sound like a good choice! :) Isn't it nice to have that option? Thanks for checking it out.

    Lisa,
    So glad to hit two points for you! :) Thought you might like this post!

    Holly,
    Well now there is an option that we'll have to find another good quote for! :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  7. Since I don't have a dog but four cats, I'll say books. Although I consider Jesus to be my #1 Bestie. He gets me and loves me anyway!

  8. Definitely books. Our neighbors trained their dogs to use our yard as a dumping ground when I was little. I may still be traumatized.

  9. Marja,
    Thanks so much! Appreciate your support. :)

    Jen,
    Well, you can't read inside a cat either. Just sayin'. :) So thankful, too, for the love of Jesus!

    Crystal,
    Although I do not dislike dogs, I'd have to say I am more of a book person too. Maybe book therapy and cheese can help with any lingering trauma? :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  10. Yeah! Inside of a dog it's pretty dark to read! I love to read.

  11. I'm a cat person, but I'd like a dog one day. I'll check out the link.

  12. Nas,
    It sure is - or at least, we assume so. lol :) Somehow I just knew you loved to read!

    Medeia,
    Thanks so much for hopping over. I appreciate it! :) Hope you find the right dog when the time comes.

    Happy weekend,
    Karen

  13. Both! If I could have a dog, I would. :) But books are much cheaper and easier,

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love the quote! But my answer is books. Cats would be second, not dogs :-)

  15. My cat is my best friend. But, yes, dogs and books are a close second :-)

  16. Terri,
    I suspect many people feel the same way! Maybe when you move back to PA in your new home, right? :)

    Kenda,
    I do too! I'm thinking we need to come up with some kind of cat and books quote now. :)

    Vanessa,
    Here again, we have to come up with a cat quote to fit, right? :) Thanks for weighing in!

    Happy weekend,
    Karen
