My best Friend is a little dog and her name is Miss Daisy. I got Miss Daisy when she was 8 weeks old. Now she is 8 years old. Today she went back to the place where she earned her certification to be a Therapy Dog, to have her picture taken with Santa. Her Mother was a mixed cocker spaniel and her Father was a registered Scottish Terrier. From the short affair puppies were born. I am 70 years old and Miss Daisy is the Smartest Dog I have even had and I have had many.. Who says a good education is not important. There are many dogs and puppies who need a forever home this Christmas and forever. THANK YOU MISS DAISY for always being there for me.

This is a wonderful poem for those who do not have a dog in their lives.


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 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 its' 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."

    I had to come back and read Miss Daisy's story. She is a very special dog. I was told that my babies have to be a year old to start training to be a therapy dog. Jelly Bean is old enough and I hope to get her started as soon as they get her health fixed. Jango has to wait til his birthday in February. Perhaps Miss Daisy could give them some tips. : )

    Regenia, thanks. Miss Daisy's wishes might include being able to get a good nights sleep with out Sasha using her for a heating pad at night.

    At 8 weeks they start socialization classes - then to simple commands- to Canine Good Citizen Award - . Her education lasted 3 years. Still worth every moment of my time time.
