Just A Dog – by Anonymous

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.” 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 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 not “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 part of mankind.”

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