Joseph Goebbels said, famously, "The only real friend one has in the end is the dog. . . . The more I get to know the human species, the more I care for my Benno."

The result was that animals could be considered `higher' than some people."
The blond Aryan beast of Nietzsche represented animality at the top available grade, at one with wild nature.

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” — Attributed to Groucho Marx, but nobody has ever been able to find where he said it.
