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 travelled, 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 probably understandphrases 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 its' 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."
