~ 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 

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 have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those 

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 phases 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 unbridled joy. "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make

me a better person.

Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's mot "just a dog" but 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 they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives

me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man. "So the next time you hear the phrase

"just a dog," just smile, because they "just don't understand."
