I love this quote. Roosevelt must have been thinking about dogs when articulating his approach to foreign policy. Of course, we all know how important it is to bark softly…But it’s the second part of this equation that really inspires me. I believe Roosevelt was saying dogs should always be at the ready to play fetch. This week’s Woofs of Wisdom remind us to keep the yapping down and always have a big stick on hand; you never know when you will need it. It’s good canine policy.
