"Spaniels by Nature are very loving,
surpassing all other Creatures, for in Heat and Cold, Wet and Dry, Day and
Night, they will not forsake their Master."
"He never makes it his business to inquire whether you are in the
right or wrong, never bothers
as to whether you are going up or down life's
ladder, never asks whether you are rich or poor, silly or wise, sinner or saint.
You are his pal. That is enough for him."
