He is…

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.

You are his life, his love, his leader.

He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.

You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

  1. How many times have we all heard this phrase, “It’s just a dog…”. I took this peom, originally believed to be written by Richard Biby!

    It reads,

    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.

    If you, too, think it’s “just a dog,” then you 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 its’ not “just a dog”
    but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
    “just a man” or “just a woman.”

    So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,”
    just smile, because they “just don’t understand.”

    1. So true and beautiful words. Definitely is not “just a dog”. I’m a dog lover forever 🐶 They give us everything and we are better because of them 🐶🐶 Who never had a dog they should adopt at least one and they’ll immediately find out what unconditional love is 💕🐶💕
