Just a Dog

Dakota: Chocolate Labrador Retriever

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 spent with "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 phases 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 the 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."
