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 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.”
I hope all my pals enjoy this. You know who ever wrote this was just like our moms and dads. Had to share. Luddy.

So this is how it is no one and I mean no one is cutting my nails. So why all the fuss so my nails are a little curled, may be I like them like that. Mom is so careful tries to file them and she tries to trick me with the nail cutters but I'm not having it. Nails and ears off limits for me . So the vet gave mom some Chinese herbs that's suppose to calm me down and relieve anxiety, so that didn't work really.
I tossed everyone one of them on the floor that was holding me down not a problem. I just looked at them . Four grown adults and they can't take me down. Maybe I should take boxing or something. I'm a really strong boy, I would never bite them or anything like that but they need to understand I don't like it. So today the ultimate fast one they thought they pulled on me. Mom went to work and didn't feed me and took my water away and I'm thinking what is she thinking. So it is what it is and I lay down for a nap, I mean no breakfast no food, then comes one of my best human friends and he always gives me lots of treats and he didn't give me any. So what's wrong with everybody. So Frank takes me for a drive , we end up at the vets now that's cool I love everybody there so they take me to the back and sedate me so they can yes cut my nails. Well I didn't know at first what was going on, one of the girls was singing a lullaby to me and holding my head and I'm dozing off and then they start to try and cut my nails. IM NOT HAVING IT. So I get up.the three of them try to hold me down nope I'm stronger than the average bear. So now they give me more juice enough to put a horse down, thats what my vet said but I held my own, finally they overcome me for a short time long enough to cut my front paws, but the back oh no.
So now my sweet doctor is upset, slap dab exhausted and really concerned about what just happened. She told my friend Frank that I needed serious training on this matter because I won't let people help me and if something serious happens and I need her help I won't trust her to help me. So now I'm home with mom she's worried and concerned about the whole nail thing. She's been filing my nails with her fingernail file and I'm letting her because I'm so out of it but I stand by those nail cutters. She picks them up and I'm up.
I don't know what she is going to do to win me over but from where I stand it's not happening.
I just look at mom and I'm so cute how can she ever make me get them cut again. But a part of me sees a serious trainer coming .. Why do I need one I walk good on a leash. I am great with other animals and people especially kids. I just don't want my nails cut. And that's it. So stay tuned for the verdict . Maybe I'll reconsider the nail file. Luddy.

Well guess what, me and my best buds Sammy and Miller were in the back yard playing and we almost caught a squirrel. Miller is a really good hunter. So the squirrel can't make it to a tree so he gets under the picnic table. We have a huge picnic table with a round rock base and the table is round too. So it's all one piece the squirrel gets up on top of the rock next the bottom of the table and we are just having a fit if you know what I mean. Sammy she jumps on top of the table and is like the queen of the country and Miller and I are trying to reach it. Miller is so close cause Danes have a long neck but we can't get it. Then mom comes out sees what's going on and tries to get us out of there. She gets like you guys are going to hurt yourself and all that. We wouldn't listen so my brother Randy comes out and promises us the world to come in, so the squirrel can get away. We took the bribe. So the squirrel was really scared it stayed there for about 30 minutes before it took off. It was a great adventure for us, we really take this stuff serious. So now it's nap time.

So everything is coming along great. I'm back home after 4 weeks at my human brothers house. It was fun being with my best friends Sammy and Miller. But I missed my house. So now I have new floors they are really cold, now that's a lot to bark about when you have as much hair as I have. They are slate, I don't cares hat they are I just love the cold on my body. Mom got me a new chair, she says it's a chair and a half, I just know its big and it's leather and it fits me. She got rid of all the furniture that wasn't leather cause of the dust mite thing so now we are all leather. Feels good to me. So the house is almost done, waiting on the countertops and then the kitchen will work, mom has to get my water from the bathroom. I'm feeling really good, my feet are good and my nose isn't running so I guess the carpet was making my feet sore. So Sammy and Miller just came over to visit, I was so excited. Tomorrow is Saturday so they will be back then. Life is good. Did I mention we got a new leather sectional too. It's big enough for all of us. I have so much to bark about. So now it's bedtime and I'm on my moms bed all curled up for a great nights sleep. Goodnight everyone.
Until next time!

So I got some allergy issues. My feet were red and my nose was running so mom takes me to the vet . Mom thinks I have food allergies and has me tested to see what was going on with me. So turns out I'm not allergic to food that's a relief a fellow has to eat. I have three things that I'm allergic to. Fleas is one of them, we have that covered not a problem. Cats is another one, I like cats what's up with that? We don't have cats so I guess I can't go see them in the pet store any more. And the other thing is dust mites. So that's where the remodel comes in. We have carpet in the family room and the living room so mom is tearing it out. I guess it's all torn out and mom is putting down slate and hardwood just for me. I'm staying at my human brothers house while all this is being done. Mom says its a surprise for me when I go home. It's a lot of work I guess. Mom keeps my food in the freezer now because of the dust mites I guess they get in to everything. I love the cold food. She rotates to the refrigator.
The good thing about all of this is thatI get to spent lots of time with my best friends Sammy and Miller.
When my house is done it will be a surprise for all of us. I guess it's going to take around three weeks because mom is tearing everything out and redoing the ceilings and walls with a new texture and all that stuff. I'll be barking about all of it when I get to see it. My mom really loves me to make my house allergy friendly for me. I am feeling better already with the food keep in the refrigator and and my feet are good cause they get washed everyday. Life is good. Luddy

Woof woof what a great week, Dog TV started this week it's really something to bark about. I really like it my best friend Sammy is all about it too. Miller can take it or leave it. But better than Dog TV my human brother is on vacation so my two best friends Sammy and Miller are staying with me, now that's something really big to bark about. I'll probably sleep for a week when this great week is over, all the tug of wars and running and wrestling woof it woof it.

You Know You're A Saint Lover When...
You don't own anything that's easily broken.
The seats in the back of your estate car are constantly down.
Your wardrobe consists of mainly light and tan-coloured clothing.
You traded in your super fast sports car for a mini van.
The walls of your house are textured...unintentionally.
You have gone through 3 vacuum cleaners within 6 months. And, when vacuuming you have to stop twice to empty the bag.
Your "dog pen" consists of the whole back room or yard.
You have locks on all your kitchen cupboards--including those fixed 5 feet up.
A peaceful afternoon consists of your dog NOT snoring.
The water bowl is really a 5 gallon bucket.
You can no longer see in or out through your vehicle side windows.
Your legs are covered in bruises from your dog's favorite pastime of "bulldozing". You buy your dog food by the bag rather than by the pound.
You gave up on the coffee table 6 months ago and assigned it to the attic.
Even though the car has come to a halt, it is still gently rocking.
You carry a piece of towel with you everywhere you go.
You have come to despise summer and can't wait for winter to return.
You concreted over the lawn 6 weeks after getting your dog(s).
When sitting on the toilet, soggy tennis balls being dropped into your underwear are a common occurrence.
You know there's just no way you'll ever get a dog car crate that's big enough. Heavy breathing no longer bothers you.
You have to pick up the dog mess -- everyone in the neighborhood will know where it came from.
You used to think German Shepherd's were big dogs.
YOU ARE LOVED AND IDOLIZED BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT.
I love my Luddy he is the sweetest boy. Would not change a thing.
