One-Liner Wednesday — Man and Dog

    Sounds like he had a bad experience somewhere in his past. May we all grow from such.

      No, he had a keen wit.

    Two other sayings about dogs that Twain is credited with:

    “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog” and
    “Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you’d stay out and your dog would go in.”

    He had quite the sharp wit, that guy. I love his books!

    Dogs. We really don’t deserve them.

    The difference between a woman and a dog is that if you lock both in the truck of your car, who will still greet you happily when you open the lid 😀 😀
