Proverbs of a Dog


Who loves me, loves my dog.
Whatever its color, a dog is a dog.
Cut off the dog's tail, it remains a dog.
What! bark myself rather than keep a dog.

Do not wake a sleeping dog?
The first to bite is a silent dog.
Beware of still water and a silent dog.
As greedy as a dog, as tired as a dog.

The fatter the flea, the leaner the dog.
Nothing but fleas are attracted to a lean dog.
You will rise with fleas lying down with a dog.
One must pick up many stones to pelt a barking dog.

A stick does not create fear in in a hungry dog.
It's hard to teach tricks to an old dog.
It's hard to break ill customs of an old dog.
The hinder is most often bitten by a dog.

The moon does not heed a barking dog.
Hold fast your staff when a companion is a dog.
A good rabbit hunter is not a kitchen dog.
Uprising of a screechy cat and a barking dog.

To lie as fast as the licking of a dish by a dog
Stones or bread, one must have something for a dog.
All are not thieves when barked at by a dog.
The best safety alarm in a home is a barking dog.

A dog is wiser than a woman,
it does not bark at its master.
It is better to irritate a dog than a woman,
A snapish dog will take care of the house faster.
