    Chloe, your tribute to your beautiful dog was so moving I couldn't watch. Got all teared up, throat felt all lumpy. Still does! Am very sorry for your loss.

    Thank you Anne.. He was a wonderful friend.

    Just to add in there.. the second picture (the one in the forrest) was 1 month after we got him, he was emaciated, shot through the ear and beaten.. The shelter said if he died within a week or 2, we could have our money back.. Within a couple of months you would've said there was never anything wrong with him.. He bounced back so well.

    The thought just struck me; the last pictures of him in the bubble bath (for his hips) where taken like 3-4 months before he died.. He still looked so young in those pictures..

    The thing is with Oscar, i've made peace with the fact that he is not with us anymore simply because he made it clear to us that it was his time to go. It still upsets me at times, I must admit..

    The picture of him running through the frost hangs proudly above my kitchen door.

    In my case it would be dog or cat.. But I think it says it all.

    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 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 human."

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