A lovely poem....




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 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 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.”
