Not just a dog …

Izzy is still missing.

How many more times do we need to keep telling everyone this news?

We made a promise that we would help to keep Izzy in our thoughts, in our continued prayers that she will be found soon and to keep sharing this – just in case there’s someone who had not heard about Izzy yet – and who might just have seen Izzy.

And this is a recent message from Izzy’s family …

People say she’s just a dog … well I say, I’m not stupid, I know what animal she is but they don’t understand … she’s also my fur baby, 12193432_1516861035291856_316436855462178924_nshe’s my daughters’ friend and playmate, 12065801_1515247515453208_1859222518183366438_nshe’s Ian’s shadow, she’s a huge part of our family, she was with us all the time joining in everything we do, and we love her so much.12190811_1513348795643080_3362124413166960507_nShe’s not just a dog, she’s IZZY and she’s OUR dog and she needs to come back home.”12140571_1509129709398322_3205106159527435809_n

“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, time spent, or costs involved for “Just a dog.” Some of my proudest moments have come about with “Just a dog.” Many hours have passed with my only company being “Just a dog,” and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest moments were brought about by “Just a dog.” In those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “Just a dog” provided comfort and purpose to overcome the day.

If you, too, think its “Just a dog,” you will 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 makes me a better person. Because of “Just a dog” I will arise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

For me, and folks like me, it’s not “Just a dog.” It’s 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 people can understand it’s not “Just a dog.” It’s the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “Just a man or woman.”

So the next time you hear the phrase “Just a dog,” smile, because they “Just Don’t Understand.”
