For those of us who are dog lovers, it can be hard to explain just how important the relationship between us and our pups really is.

Up-and-coming country artist Mo Pitney has been able to transfer all those emotions into an incredible new track. Pitney has quickly become known for his ability to write incredibly honest and heartfelt songs and his newest release is no exception.

"It's Just a Dog" is a love story of a different kind. It starts with the chance encounter that brings the musician and the "old mutt" together, developing a long-lasting friendship. She supports him through the happy times and the bad, always there when he needs her. One fateful day, Pitney finds himself having to face the reality of losing his loving sidekick.
