- Just a DOG - by AppyNinja - Just a DOG - by AppyNinja
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 aobut 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.

"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.

"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 woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog,"
just smile,
because they "just don't understand."

You are so right!
Some people don't understand, how strong the bond between humans and their wonderful dogs is!
I do understand, because I'm a proud dog owner too and I would never give up my two wonderful cold-nosed friends for anything in the world! :)

Wow, der Text hat mich echt berührt :happycry: Nichts ist jemals "nur" etwas. Es steht immer etwas dahinter. Sei es ein T-Shirt, ein Stofftier, ein Kind oder ein Hund. Egal wie viel Mühe man hinein steck, es ist es einfach wert :heart: Wer Liebe gibt, der bekommt sie zurück. und das ist das Schönste :love:

Das Foto ist auch echt klasse! :wow: Vor allem dieser Orange-Stich im Bild, echt cool ;)

It is never JUST a dog. Whoever says it's "just a dog," deserves a boot to the head.
