This is such a useful accessory I had to nick it from Kimo and Sabi's mommy.

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 invloved 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 phrases like 'just a friend,' 'just a sunrise,' and '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 next time you hear the phrase 'just a dog'......
Just smile, because they 'just don't understand.'

The poem could also say "just a cat"
