I'm writing something about the laws about pet ownership in NYC. It would be cool if I could find a quote that conveys the goodness of having a pet that I could use at the end of my conclusion. I know this is vague b/c I don't know exactly what I want. I do know that I hate cheesy and cutesy, and internet searching for quotes about pets turns up lots of cheesy and cutesy. To give some idea, I kind of like the following two quotes b/c they express the sentiment I'm looking for without being sentimental. The quote doesn't have to be from literature, but I'm not looking for the wisdom of your Aunt Margaret.

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. - Milan Kundera
Thanks for any ideas.
