  3. Irish Proverb:

    A dog owns nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied.

  4. Jimmy Kimmel:

    I felt like Seth made a joke last night that was specifically from me, he said his monologue was like sending the first dog into space to see if it came back alive, and I did feel that way… I was like ‘I have to see what Seth says and how it’s received’… and I thank him for being that litmus test.

  5. Renee Alexander:

    It's heartbreaking for me to watch, over and over on TV, how his life was cut short on the street, just like a dog, they had no respect for him. No human being should die in the street like that - choked to death.
