Copyright The Quipping Queen 2006. DOG DITTY DAILY #6 Motivational Moment for Misguided Masters & Mutts Compiled by Hugo Hotagen, DDD (Duke of Doorknobs & Doghouses), a loyal lapdog-in-training apprented to the affable, agnostic and all-round air-headed Court of the Quipping Queen. A quirky, quizzical and sometimes questionable quotidian quotation, in honor of the "Year of the Dog", follows herewith: "When invited for a weekend in the country, remember to bring a rubber ball. Bounce it for the child; throw it for the dog." Author: Lewis Lampham (Editor of Harper's Magazine).
