Help me identify this quote!

I can’t remember the exact quote or who said it; it’s got something to do with dogs having all the virtues of man but none of his vices.

It’s an epitaph. It reads:

Near this spot
are deposited the remains of one
who possessed Beauty without Vanity
Strength without Insolence
courage without Ferocity
and all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.

Six minutes! Do you know any more details about the epitaph?
Thanks! :slight_smile:

The epitaph belongs to Hobhouse, the dog of Lord Byron. The dog is buried at Newstead Abbey.

Whoops, I goofed. I’m sorry. The dog’s name is Boatswain.

Again, much thanks!
