    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," 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 it's not "just a dog" , but
    the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man or
    woman." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile --
    because they "just don't understand."

    "Just a Dog" by Richard Biby, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

    Favorite quote: "Until one has loved a dog, a part of ones' soul remains unawakend.Not JUST A DOG.

    There ya be.
    "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face."
