I don’t know Groucho Marx, but I do like this quote of his. I came across it on my outing to Excelsior. It is even in a pretty red frame. Red is my color, you know.
“Outside of a book, a dog is man’s best friend.
Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
Today, I’m joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop sponsored by BlogPaws! Don’t forget to stop by and visit some new blogs for fun!

My Mom has that on a tee shirt and she thinks it is so funny. She used to wear it to work at the school library. BOL! BOL!
LOL! I knew I liked your mom for a reason! Good taste.
Genevieve Petrillo says
So…. Is Groucho saying I SHOULD eat the nightlight? I’ve been thinking about it…
Love and licks,
I think not. As far as I know, electrical doesn’t work well with doggy tummies!
Ellen Shedlarz says
I never heard that…and love it. On my way to Kanub Utah and Best Friends for a few days. I will miss you.
Enjoy and safe travels. We have a fear of Utah after our drive through there on the way to Vegas in 2014. Nothing but red rock and terrible storms. It is beautiful, though, just desolate in many areas.

Is a book something for me to play with? I think I ate/chewed/ripped a book when I was younger. XOXO Sparkle
I ate the cover off a library book as a young pup. Mom had to give the library green papers for it. Not good. I would avoid eating books.
Two French Bulldogs says
We like that one
Lily & Edward
I like it too.
Talent Hounds says
Kilo prefers to sit or lay on books…he’s not much of a reader LOL
I like to read, but picture books are my favorites.
I love that one!

I’ve always loved that quote, but I don’t think I realized it was from Groucho Marx (or I forgot). It’s a good one!
I didn’t verify it anywhere, but it was on the sign at the book store.
Pooch Smooches says
I love that quote! I have it on the home page for my author web site. (Which I just realized is really out of date…)
Add that to the list of reasons to read other blogs! Find out what is wrong with your own site, LOL!

This is such a good reminder that I need to READ some books for pleasure this summer. I feel like I’m only reading for work or the blog and I need to pick up some classics. Thanks for this reminder and SUPER cute pic.
We find summer to be the best time to read because of the heat and not being able to do much. In winter we are much more active and busy.
The Daily Pip says
I have always loved this quote, too! You look great against the red.
Thank you. Even though many already know it, it is a good reminder.
HAPPY HAZEL says
Oh yes! Red IS your color! <3 Looking beautiful in front of that sign! 😀 Cool quote too hehe! 🙂
I do love red and good quotes!
I love that saying too!! Truthfully, I like most quotes about dogs. 🙂
I do too, maybe because I am a dog.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
I like that quote! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you. I think it is a good one!
JeanneP of bichonpawz says
I truly enjoy every single quote about dogs! LOVE these pics!!
Thank you. I think anything with dogs involved is a good thing, including quotes.
BOL…What a great quote!! That Groucho was one funny guy!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
Not only a funny guy, but funny looking!
Tails Around the Ranch says
Groucho was one cool dude, Emma. And smart, too. ?
He sure was a smart guy…and funny too.
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Fabulous quote. One of the mystery series I read is based in Excelsior!
Oh wow! I didn’t see anything mysterious going on when I was there, but that is probably why the town makes for good mysteries!
Jean Dion says
One of my favorite dog quotes of all time. And red really is Emma’s color!
Jean from Welcome to the Menagerie
Thank you. I do look good with red.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
I was such an avid reader Emma – but then came the Doods….
My mom isn’t a big book reader. She likes short stories and articles, things that are true where she can learn something.
