Not "just a dog"
A dog isn't "just a dog" like you might hear some people say. It is a companion, a best friend, someone that understands you and will listen to you. It's a friend where words are welcome but not necessary. I happened to come across this beautiful video on youtube. If you, like me, think a dog is not "just a dog" but so much more, it is family, then you might enjoy this video too.
