Get the facts from me

Godpa shared with me this paragraph from the book he's reading. It sounds wise but frankly, I could have told him so myself.

J. Allen Boone went to visit Mojave Dan, a wise old hermit who lived with a colony of dogs and burros. He asked the hermit to help him understand his dog and get at the truth of the animal. The sage thought for a while and then answered, "There's facts about dogs, and there's opinions about them. The dogs have the facts, and the humans have the opinions. If you want facts about a dog, always get them straight from the dog. If you want opinions, get them from humans."
-- How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend, by the Monks of New Skete
