Just Sitting and Watching...

See what we are doing up there?? guessed it.  We are sitting.  Sitting and Waiting.  Mama has been running around like a chicken with her head cut off ... so busy these days that we aren't having all that much fun.  It's ok though...she has promised to make it up to us!  

Hope to have more time coming up this week to blog a bit more and get around to visit everyone.  We will see how THAT goes!

Happy Friday Friends!

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 
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 it's not "just a dog", 
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being 
"just a man or woman." 

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog" 
just smile... 
because they "just don't understand."
