"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"

"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"
Sara Zarr
"Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things"
 George Carlin
"I'm not about to go out and buy a snake for a pet. I mean, I may have faced a few fears but I'm not insane"
Kristin Davis
"I heard that Jesus had a pet dinosaur. Evolution must be a myth then"
 John Bacon
"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"
Steven Wright
