20+ Best Dog Mom Quotes

You’re in good company around here, dog moms. Ree Drummond has shared her home de ella with a basset hound since she was three years old, and currently lives under the same roof as four pups of the same breed. “I’ve loved bassets all my life,” Ree says. “Their excess skin, floppy ears, droopy eyes, and hilarious personalities keep me entertained and make my heart leap.” (The Drummond family pets also include two yellow-white Labs and a German shepherd. Talk about commitment!)

Here, you’ll find dog mom quotes that speak to the sort of devotion, patience, and sheer love that comes with caring for a pup—the kind of quotes that will make you want to run to the treat jar. A few of these dog quotes are funny, some are sentimental, and several are just plain joyful (happy quotes for the win!). But there will have you feeling warm and fuzzy about the canines in your life—whether your home is full of small dog breeds, medium-sized dogs, or Walter-sized dogs. Er, we mean…large dog breeds. (No offense, Walter.) After all, as Caroline Knapp says, “Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.”
