Just a Dog

by Richard Biby - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

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

phases like

"just a friend,"

"just a sunrise,"


"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 person."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a

dog," just smile, because they "just don't understand."
