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 and unbridled joy.
“Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.
Because of “just a dog,” I will rise early, take long rides 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.
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.”
We are located in the small town of Johnstown, Colorado, about an hour north of Denver and four miles east of I-25. Call or email us to make an appointment to meet our puppies and dogs. APPOINTMENT ONLY! We strive to keep our dogs and puppies as healthy as possible. Most people assume that when you don’t allow people to view your kennel, that you have something to hide. Unforeseen diseases can be carried in on shoes and hands, that can cause severe illness to puppies and dogs. Therefore, caution and preparation needs to be in place for outside visitors. Thank you for understanding our policy.
