I need to be able to be at a gig and just put my bag on the floor and not worry about it being stood on or getting ruined. You want a bag that can go through anything. And a little bit of softness is always lovely. If I don’t have a dog, I can just pet my bag!
My campaign is about getting pets to be more active, and exercise with your animal is a great way for people to exercise. When you’re out with your pet, it becomes fun. You don’t think of it as a chore. For me, taking my dog out for a walk is very relaxing.

I have some road rage inside of me. Traffic, especially in L.A., is a pet peeve of mine.
You know what I hate? I hate people who give me plants. The whole giving someone plants – it’s like giving someone a pet. I’m giving you responsibility, I’m giving you a thing that you now have to take care of for, like, a year until it dies, and then I’m giving you sadness and guilt.
It is a pet peeve of mine when people throw around arguments citing ‘Fair Use’ and yet fail to actually explain what a fair use argument actually is.

Never wear anything that panics the cat.
P. J. O’Rourke
There are things that I invented – the creaky geriatric robot that is always grumpy, for example, or the little wheelie guy, he’s not in the Hasbro lore. But kids love that stuff – this little guy as a pet on a chain. They gravitate towards it.

William S. Burroughs

Environmentalists hate sprawl – except when it comes to the size of their expansive pet legislation on Capitol Hill.
In summation, like your beloved pet rock, Twitter is useful only in your imagination.
People always joke that ‘dog’ spells ‘god’ backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.
Taking responsibility and having faith in your own judgment will help you make good choices and decisions at the end of your pet’s life.

Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.
One of my pet peeves about Nashville is that it tends to be copycatted. I don’t want to do that. I’ve got to be different.
Maybe humans are just the pet alligators that God flushed down the toilet.
It might seem strange to feast on Guinea pig, but Ecuadorians love to eat cuy. Personally, I think it’s a phenomenal alternative to pork or chicken. High in protein, low in fat, cheap and easy to raise. Oh, and cuy tastes great, much like roast pig. You might call it a pet, but I prefer to call it dinner.
Why would you want to do anything else but rescue a pet?
I had a PET scan, and it was cleared. Not one cell of cancer after three rounds of chemo. But I still had seven more just for safety, which was stupid. I should have just worked on therapy.

I noticed that on the Beach Boys’ ‘Pet Sounds’ record they could get away with racy lyrics like that because of how they looked and the melodic way they sang the suggestive stuff. They slid it by the censors.
My mom didn’t believe in putting chemicals in hair. But when I got to college, we didn’t have A/C in our dorms freshman year. So after several days of waking up looking like a Chia Pet, I was like ‘OK, I’m gonna get a perm.’ And then my hair revolted and fell out. I was over that quick, fast and in a hurry.
Keshia Knight Pulliam
My pet peeves are people touching me a lot. Random dudes grabbing me and slapping me across the back. They’re not doing it on purpose, but it’s like they forget I’m a person. But you can’t do anything about it. What are you going to do?
One of my obsession is animals. I’m into dog rescues. It drives me crazy when people go to pet stores and buy dogs. There are so many dogs that need a good home. And this sounds crazy, but I really believe they know what is happening and are appreciative, and I just think they make for the best pets.
For me, it’s always been one of my pet peeves to keep people engaged and talking, and just always being interested in what I have going on. To keep the level of creativity always turned up to the max.

As a child, the most important people in my life were my pet rabbit and Mary, mother of Jesus.

Dogs really are perfect soldiers. They are brave and smart; they can smell through walls, see in the dark, and eat Army rations without complaint.
If cats were double the size they are now, they’d probably be illegal.
Some men over-tweeze their eyebrows, and it’s just too perfect. Men are meant to have kind of a bushy brow. Too much aftershave is also off-putting; it’s one of my pet hates.
It was so cold today that I saw a dog chasing a cat, and the dog was walking.
Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.
I do have the most adorable little Chihuahua mix. I adopted him about 3 1/2 years ago from Much Love pet adoption, and he has been the love of my life ever since. His name is Beau, or as my sister and I like to call him ‘ mushy mush’ because he truly is just a pile of loving mush that just melts in your arms.
We write in ways that, we generally hope, reflect real life, or at least look familiar to humans. And in life, recurring themes are a recurring theme. We never quite conquer a pet vice or a relationship pattern or a communication habit. We’re haunted by our particular demons.
Pet foods come in a variety of flavors because that’s what humans like, and we assume our pets like what we like. We’re wrong.

Nicole Gale Anderson
Cats are inquisitive, but hate to admit it.
Disrespect is my biggest pet peeve.
We have a habit of turning to scientists when we want factual answers and artists when we want entertainment, but where are the facts about the nature of the self? Neurologists peering at PET scans and fMRIs know they aren’t seeing the soul in there.
I like animals because they are not consciously cruel and don’t betray each other.
I love pigs. I think they’re very cute. I really want a pet pig, but those micro pigs, they don’t stay micro.

H. G. Bissinger
Pet Sematary’ is one of my favorite books of Stephen King and I have a deep love relationship with it.

Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.

One of my pet peeves, one of my obsessions, is litter.

William H. Macy
If you have a deep-seated need to be loved and admired every day, you shouldn’t be in politics. You should go work at a pet store.
Kittens can happen to anyone.
Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job.
Franklin P. Jones
When you want a break from dogs, and you take them to the kennel to the stars, no one thinks you’re a bad pet owner. But when you have kids, you can’t drop them off for three weeks without someone calling Child Protective Services!
My biggest pet peeve is when you go to a fine restaurant, and it’s like a mausoleum inside. Good food should be joyful. There should be laughter and chatter, not people sitting there like they’re in a funeral-parlor waiting room.
Cats are very independent animals. They’re very sexy, if you want. Dogs are different. They’re familiar. They’re obedient. You call a cat, you go, ‘Cat, come here.’ He doesn’t come to you unless you have something in your hand that he thinks might be food. They’re very free animals, and I like that.
Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.
My dream pet? I like a couple of them, man: monkey, I love dogs. See, tigers, I don’t know – I can’t be playing with something like that. A monkey, I can handle it. A dog, yeah; I would get a monkey.
To me, a cat is an easy pet, they don’t need any spoiling or looking after.
Kittens are wide-eyed, soft and sweet. With needles in their jaws and feet.
I started out in 1989 doing open mic nights. The first 10 years, I was literally all about I’m going to be a star. I want leather pants, I want a kangaroo, I want to be on ‘MTV Cribs,’ I want to go to the mall with a pet monkey and I want everyone to go, ‘Wow, that guy’s huge, he’s successful.’
I really want a pet, and I really love animals.
I try not to wear anything I have to fidget with – there’s nothing worse than wearing something and pulling down the hem and re-adjusting the top. My pet hate is when girls wear those strapless dresses and spend the whole night yanking them up.
That’s not the way the government works. You can’t just take $1 billion from this program, $1 billion from over here, and then put it toward your pet project.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
Charles de Gaulle
Animals have a much better attitude to life and death than we do. They know when their time has come. We are the ones that suffer when they pass, but it’s a healing kind of grief that enables us to deal with other griefs that are not so easy to grab hold of.
We need to bring awareness to how great of a pet cats are.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
Robert A. Heinlein
This is always one of my big pet peeves is that 65% of NBA players, three years out of the NBA, are broke. I mean, so, maybe maturing a little more on the front end and getting an education might serve you well down the road.
The world spends $40 billion a year on pet food.
A happy arrangement: many people prefer cats to other people, and many cats prefer people to other cats.
Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.
Who indeed, after pulling off the coloured glasses of prejudice and thrusting out of sight his pet projects, can help seeing the folly of these endeavours to protect men against themselves? A sad population of imbeciles would our schemers fill the world with, could their plans last.
If a dog jumps into your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer.
Alfred North Whitehead
Being successful is about professionalism, and chewing gum is unprofessional. Its also a huge pet peeve of mine.
Our pets rely on us entirely for their nutrition. So if you’re making your own judgments, that could lead to a mistake. At the same time, we have more control over our pet’s diet than we do with our children or with ourselves, so your vet can tell you what is appropriate for your dog and you can assign them that.
When I was pregnant with my first child, I was 35 years old, and I was working in a pet shop.
I believe giving pets ‘people food,’ while tempting, is generally frowned upon. As a pet owner you want to prioritize your animal’s health over the entertainment value in watching your little guy bat around a small piece of chicken.
I hate rats. I had a pet rat to try and overcome it. I even gave him mouth-to mouth resuscitation when he had a heart attack. But I couldn’t conquer it.
Pet stores just sell their animals.
Animals are sentient, intelligent, perceptive, funny and entertaining. We owe them a duty of care as we do to children.
People buy a cat and think, ‘Oh that’s a beautiful collar. I’ll put that on,’ but that doesn’t make them a responsible pet owner.

When I was 16… I worked in a pet store. And they fired me because… they had three snakes in there, and one day I braided them.
One of my pet hates is people re-Tweeting praise, I loathe it more than anything else in the world.
One of my pet peeves in athleisure today is clothes that make a woman feel square and one-dimensional.
I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales – where some of my ancestors are from – and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons, and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!
One of my big pet peeves is single-use plastic bags. I think it’s one of the stupidest ideas in the world.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
To his dog, every man is Napoleon; hence the constant popularity of dogs.
I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.
I’ve been lucky. I’ve made films that I really like. It’s been a combination of what comes to me and what I choose. I’ve gone after lots of things that I didn’t get, pet projects that everybody ends up chasing after. Really, you’re lucky if you get anything.
Definitely, when I have a place and I’m going to be there for any significant amount of time, I want to have dogs. I like a pet you can have some fun with and who does everything you do.
If your Facebook page has turned into a shrine to your relationship, pet, or newborn, no one will say anything, but all who are subjected to your news feed are totally annoyed. Super fans who turn their profiles into mausoleums dedicated to their teams are equally insufferable and one hundred times more pathetic.
A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
Joseph Wood Krutch
If I was good each week, my father would take me to a different pet store each Saturday. I had a snake, horny toads, turtles, lizards, rabbits, guinea pigs… I kept my alligator in the bathtub until it got too big.
Dick Van Patten
Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many different ailments, but I have never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
Joseph Wood Krutch
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.

I’ve never written a ‘Revolver’ or a ‘Pet Sounds.’
A lover tries to stand in well with the pet dog of the house.
Children are my pet cause. I have a foster child in El Salvador, and whenever I’m home, I work for the Adam Walsh Foundation, which finds missing children. I also do some hospital visits and other things for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
All I want in life is to pet my dog and cat. After that, all I want to do is post photos of them. Mostly because they’re the cutest things ever, but also because I don’t have to worry about how ugly I look in the photo.
Millions of animals are euthanized every year because shelters can’t find homes for them. Buying animals from pet stores also tends to support puppy and cat mills, many of which have deplorable conditions for animals, which shouldn’t be tolerated.
I thought that I was a crazy pet owner, but now I realize I’m not so bad.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldfish in curved bowls… saying that it is cruel to keep a fish in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the fish would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?
When it comes to the great either/or of pet ownership, I am definitely a cat person.
My biggest pet peeve is when people don’t admit what they’ve done.
I have a lot of trouble understanding how people see me as a celebrity. I work 14 hours a day, and then I just want to talk to my family, see the people I love, pet my dog, and go to bed. I’m not looking to be best friends with or emulate a celebrity.
I’d cut school and go over to the Lori-Ann Donut Shop and eat doughnuts. I got a job at the pet store near Lechmere, unloading fish tanks. They gave me $10 for unloading a full long-bed truckload. I never broke a fish tank. When I asked for a raise, I got fired.
There’s just me and my wife and a dog and we feed him Healthy Choice also.
We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.
I think there’s something great and generic about goldfish. They’re everybody’s first pet.
When a guy tells me I’m cute, it’s not something desirable. Cute is more like what you want your pet to be.
One of my biggest pet peeves is well-dressed designers. If you spend that much time thinking about your own clothes, you’re not spending enough time thinking about what you’re designing.
Time spent with cats is never wasted.
You can get too bogged down in technology and you can sort of forget what it is you were trying to do. And with the Pet Shop Boys it’s primarily about the songs, it’s about song writing.
I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it.
Do not make the mistake of treating your dogs like humans or they will treat you like dogs.
One of the joys of writing historical fiction is the chance to read as much as you like on a pet subject – so much that you could easily bore your friends senseless on the topic.
I do not believe that I will ever write an adult novel from an animal’s point of view unless someday it becomes suddenly appealing to me to make a narrator a mentally ill pet. Never say never.
To this day I don’t ever remember seeing a pet inside Moscow, I never saw anyone carrying a dog, or leading a dog. Err I finally saw a, a pet some years later in Kiev, so I thought that life must have been, different.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when a guy’s wearing flip-flop sandals, which I don’t understand. Men’s feet are disgusting to begin with, but now they’re on display when I try to go out for a nice steak at a restaurant, and I have to sit there and look at some guy’s hoof? I don’t get it. I don’t understand it.
A kitten is in the animal world what a rosebud is in the garden.
Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.
I could never date a guy with a pet snake.
I was very short. Everybody else was two years older in my class, and I had curly hair and was teacher’s pet.
I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away!
I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed. These things, to me, are expressions of love.
If the Beastie Boys and the Beach Boys and Pet Shop Boys can stay boys, so can we.
No one can feel as helpless as the owner of a sick goldfish.
No one ever pretended that shopping for anything is a rational experience. If it were, would there be Fluffernutter? Laceless sneakers? Porkpie hats? Would the Chia Pet even exist?
I don’t mind being called Maddy at all, but I mind the closeness that you assume you get by calling me by my pet name. So merely by calling me Maddy, I don’t give you the authority to come and put your hand around my shoulder.
Cats don’t like change without their consent.
Teach your children how to behave with animals. Adopt a pet. Don’t go buy one. Please. That’s a sin. Let’s get these puppy mills out of business.
My biggest pet peeve, I guess, is other comedians criticizing Larry the Cable Guy.
Truth be told, ginormous portions have become a pet peeve of mine.
Having a pet only brings more love into a home and it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever experienced.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
And I strongly believe people should rescue dogs, or, at the very least, listen to Bob Barker and have your pet spayed or neutered.
Maybe I was unpopular a bit because I was a teacher’s pet. But even the teachers complained about me. They would say to my parents, ‘For every one question any pupil asks, Walter asks 10.’
I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
I guess you could say I’m a closeted animal person, because a lot of my life I did it in secrecy. I was always fascinated with exotic animals, particularly reptiles, from the age of 6 when I got a pet tortoise.
Gypsy was the name my brother gave a pet turtle he had. I always thought it was so peculiar.
A lizard is a perfect pet for a model. They only need feeding once a fortnight. And I’m always travelling, so it’s perfect. If I had a dog, it would drop dead of starvation.
Abbey Lee Kershaw
I like to listen to the Police, Sting, Queen, Pet Shop Boys.
Mike Will Made It
There are all sorts of cute puppy dogs, but it doesn’t stop people from going out and buying Dobermans.
I don’t read good books anymore, it seems; I just buy them and put them on the shelf and every now and then walk over and pet them. I’m like the optimistic dieter who fills her closet with clothes two sizes too small and dreams of the day she can wear them. I know just what I want to do when I retire.
My first pet at home in Edinburgh was a dog my dad had called Glen. He was a small sheepdog and went with my dad every day to work as manager of a cooking centre, which made the children’s lunches for schools.
My college friends call me Karu, which is the worst. Only in our country can we make a short form for a short name. But otherwise, I’ve never had a pet name all my life. But now, in official meetings, someone will call me KJo. And I’ll judge that person in my head. Just call me Karan.
I used to love dogs until I discovered cats.
I have a chip on my shoulder I pet every morning, a constant feeling like I have something to prove. Hearing that the canon can’t be diversified, there’s no room for more brown faces – that fueled my fire.
I’m very into Taylor Swift. From her music to her wardrobe, she is absolutely killing it. Also, she has adorable cats that I would love to pet.
I am a pet lover, especially dogs, and have been doing social work even before the lockdown began.
Most women have jobs that require them to leave the house. A cat is actually a perfect pet. You get the love and companionship of a creature covered in fur, and you don’t have to take it for a walk, and it can feed itself. Less maintenance. Surely any man can appreciate the practicality of this choice.
