A Dog From time to time people tell me, "lighten up, it's just
a dog", or "That's alot of money for just a dog". They don't understand the distance traveled, time spent,
or costs involved for "Just a dog". Some of my proudest moments have come about with "Just a dog". Many
hours have passed with my only company being "Just a dog", and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest
moments were brought about by "Just a dog". In those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "Just a dog"
provided comfort and purpose to overcome the day. If you, too, think it's "Just a dog", 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 makes me a better person. Because of "Just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look
longingly to the future. For me and folks like me, it's not "Just a dog". It's 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 people can understand it's not
"Just a dog". It's the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "Just a woman". So the
next time you hear the phrase "Just a dog", smile, because they "Just Don't Understand".

Nazi Germany used the Weimar coat of arms until 1935. The Nazi Party used a black eagle above a stylised oak wreath, with a swastika at its centre.
