Sleep tight - don't let the bed bugs bite.
Origin: in the times when people slept on frame beds and tied ropes for slats,
the ropes needed to be tight to support the person.
Bed bugs were usually found in the hay they stuffed their mattresses with.
Some bunny loves you
Some days you are the top dog and other days you're the hydrant.
Sometimes when I get up in the morning, I feel very peculiar.
I feel like I've just got to bite a cat!
I feel like if I don't bite a cat before sundown, I'll go crazy!
But then I just take a deep breath and forget about it.
That's what is known as real maturity.
Something to crow about!
Something's fishy around here.

There must be a heaven for animals we love.
They are not human, yet they bring out our humanity.
Each day they teach us little lessens in trust and steadfast affection.
Whatever heaven may be, there is surely a special place in it for friends as good as these.
There'd be green alagators and long neck geese,
got humpback camels and chimpanzees,
Some cats and rats and elephants but sure-as-your-born,
I just don't see those unicorn.

Things We Can Learn From a Dog:
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Be loyal to the people who treat you well.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent,
sit close by and nuzzle him or her gently.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout.
Run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joys of a long walk.
This place is a ZOO!
This place is for the BIRDS!
Those we have held in are arms for even a little while; we hold in our hearts forever.

Unleash your beast
Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,
man will not himself find peace.
