    DefaultJust a dog.....

    From time to time I hear someone say"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 have been brought about by "just a dog," and 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 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 a man or just a
    woman."

    So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog" just smile... because they
    "just don't understand."

    They don't understand and don't know how much they are missing not having the love of "just a dog".

    Isn't that the truth. I'd rather be around a dog (especially a lab) any day than most people I know.

    I have that printed out, framed with pictures of the dogs.. It's sad how many people don't have the same relationships we have with our dogs. They will never understand how much they are missing out!
