Caroline Knapp Quote
Feelings float up from inside — rational ones, irrational ones, ones you didn't even know you had — and attach themselves to the dog, who will not question their validity, or hold your behavior up to scrutiny, or challenge your perceptions. Freud in fur; Freud without the therapeutic agenda. In the dog's presence you are free to act — and act out — any way you want.
