Just a Dog

Posted 08-28-2012 at 07:18 PM by SocalPitgal


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 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 person".

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