Just a dog - Thank you Anita Bailey!

Here is my beautiful son, I miss you so much.
Anita Bailey is not only a good friend, she is also the first owner/breeder of my son Vito... I took the liberty of publishing her own thoughts which could not reflect my thoughts any better!!!
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".
