Filosofen, vitenskapsmannen og forfatteren Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) var også opptatt av hunder:

I do not know whether dogs can think, or what thinking is, or whether human beings can think. But whether human beings can think or not, I know that those who love dogs think that dogs can think. This, I am afraid, is the sum total of my contribution to human knowledge on this important subject.

(Bertrand Russell from «Do Dogs Think?» (15 June 1932), p. 181–182.)
