"The one thing I don't like about them," he says, "is what's called doglike devotion. Also, I have a hatred of habit and routine. And what dogs love is just that. They like regular everything, and I don't have regular anything. I have a timetable, but no routine."I've reached the decidedly eccentric stage of my life where I dislike anyone who doesn't adore dogs (with one notable exception; and that's because she loves human beings more than anyone I know).
