From time to time, people tell me to lighten up, it's " just a dog," or " that's a lot of money for just a dog ."
They don't understand why someone would spend that much money and time on " 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 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 unconditional love.
" 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 to the future with hope.
So for me and folks like me, its not " just a dog" but 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".
