JUST A DOG

From
time to time people tell me, “Lighten up, it’s just a dog”, or “That’s a
lot of money for just a dog”. They don’t understand the distance traveled,
the time spent, or the costs involved for “Just a dog”.

Some
of my proudest moments have come about with “Just a dog”. Many hours
have passed and my only company was “Just a dog”, but I did not once
feel slighted.

Some
of my saddest moments were brought about by “Just a dog”. In those
days of darkness, the gentle touch of “Just a dog” gave me comfort
and reason to overcome the day.

If
you, too, think it’s “Just a dog”, then you will probably understand
phrases like “Just a friend”, “Just a sunrise” or “Just
a promise.”

“Just
a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure
and unbridled joy.

“Just
a dog” brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better
person.

Because
of “Just a dog”, I will rise early, take long walks and look
longingly to the future.

For
me and folks like me, it’s not “Just a dog”. It’s an embodiment of
all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the
pure joy of the moment.

“Just
a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself
and the worries of the day.

I
hope that someday people can understand that it’s not “Just a dog”. It’s
the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “Just a man or a woman”.

So
the next time you hear the phrase “Just a dog”, smile, because they
“Just don’t understand”.
