today I went to Petco. I had so much fun, everyone loves me so much there. While mom worked, the manager took me all over the store to play, I saw puppies, big dogs grrrrrrrrr, kitties, than at 2:00 mom took me and off we went to the back of the store, I saw a lady in white, my heart sunk, it's a vet. Next thing I see a needle comming at me . OUCH I got a shot, I cryed, and cryed, and screamed. Everyone heard me, than I wouldn't play any more I was very mad, than mom took me outside. They were having a pie throwing game, for $5 you could hit the assistant manager in the face with a pie, Guess what? I was the offical face cleaner, oh how much fun that was. I got to clean the whippy cream off her face, mmmmm. I"m still full, mom say's I better watch or I may get fat, it's so worth it though.I can't wait to go back again.

This was sent to mom, and she has read it over and over again. it says what she has always thought, so now she knows she's not really crazy.
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 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 human."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile, because they "just don't understand."
