I was sent this in my email I do not know who wrote it but it made me think of my Cory so Much! What she meant to me, what she gave to, how she was always there no matter what! I miss her so bad, and any body who has a dog , and knows the love they give us, know they are not (Just A Dog !) I hope you like it Terry Corys Mom!
We folk who have, "just a dog," will appreciate this piece that I found in my mail this morning. I read it to my two, "Just Dogs," and they were dancing with joy. Oh, they didn't understand it, but just me talking to them gave us all complete joy. I LOVE my two Aussie's.....and they in return give nothing less than, total devotion. (sob)
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 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. So the next time you hear the phrase, "just a dog," just smile, because they just don't understand.
