'It's Just A Dog' - Poem

'It's Just A Dog' - Poem

People who don’t care for pets, can’t understand the love a human can have for a dog, cat, or any other type of animal.

Having pets as part of your family is a big responsibility, which implies a number of commitments that we as pet parents must fulfil. And no doubt our furry family members reward us every day as we try to provide the best care for them.

That said, we read this dog poem that resonated with us and thought it would do the same for our community too. So here goes the poem for dogs...

"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 travelled, 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 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 “just a woman.”

So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,” just smile, because they “just don’t understand.”

And we couldn't agree more!

In fact, the inspiration for starting FURCHILD came from two dogs, who were never 'just dogs' in our eyes.

They were our beloved pets who enriched our lives, changed our careers, expanded our friendships, and reinforced a sense of community within our home in Dubai.

And if that resonates, share this emotional poem for dogs with your family and friends. Or even read it to your dog as their bedtime story, just before you kiss them goodnight.

Also, if you're curious, you can read more about the journey of Furchild and the two dogs that inspired it all.
