A POEM I FOUND......
“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 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 the
phrases like “just a friend,” “just a promise,” or “just a sunrise,” “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 will understand that it’s
not “just a dog,” but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a man.” So the
next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,” just smile, because they “just don’t understand.”
