'Just A Dog'
Author Unknown

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 phrases like 'just a friend,' 'just a sunrise,' and 'just a promise.'  'Just a dog' brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure 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 it's not 'just a dog, 
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being 'just a man.'
So next time you hear the phrase 'just a dog'......

Just smile, because they 'just don't understand.

Happy Halloween!!!!

Hope after a hard day of training.
