    For all your dog lovers out there (like me)

    This was in the newsletter of the place where we adopted Leo from (that sentence sounds convoluted, but you know what I mean... I hope). Personally, I couldn't agree more.

    It's 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 phases 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 makes 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

    So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile....because they "just don't understand." and keeps me from being "just a human."

    dogs - and cats - are sometimes better companions than the two-legged ones

    I couldn't agree with you more on everything.. I look forward to picking him up on the way home.. I also was up at 6:00 scrubbing the living room rug, as my best friend climbed off the bed, and peed on the carpet.. All I could think of saying was "what the h--l were you thinking" Of course he tries nt to look me in the eye... Ughhh

    Sounds like my house! My kids say to me all the time "You let the dog get away with tons more than we EVER got away with" -- to which I reply "And your point is...?". I just cannot imagine my life without a dog!

    I am fairly new to this board, so I apologize if this is a repeat. If you love dogs and have not seen this video or visited the site, you will be in for a real treat.

    We provide dogs with warm comfortable homes, plenty of good food and water, a variety of toys and blankies. We take them for walks even if we are tired and don't feel like it, and share our secrets with them. But the best part of being owned by a dog is that we get to make fools of ourselves over them and do it gladly just for the wag of a tail or joy they display when they see us. We are the lucky ones.

    Animals are more honest with their emotions than humans.
