The Life Of A Police Dog
You brought me home One sunny day
With you for years I would surely stay.
I met your pack Children and wife
I began to love My new-found life.
I slept on your couch
At the foot of your bed
You looked at me lovingly
While petting my head.
We trained for months
And our bonding grew
We were both partners
Buddies in Blue.
We did school demo’s
And I never did wrong
Over all of the years
My love for you grew strong.
How I loved to work
To stand up and bark
In the back of our car
From light until dark.
We went call to call
Having fun all the way
Until the call came
On that one fateful day.
A man with a gun
The dispatcher did say
I jumped from my car
When it pointed your way.
Before leaving home I was told “keep him safe” by your wife
I knew at that moment For you I would give my life.
The bullet struck hard Steady and true
The bullet struck me instead Of striking you.
image (3)When you go home tonight Tell your wife I did good Strong,
Tall and Proud On the ground that I stood.
I’m dead and gone now
This much is true
But I’ve done my job well Of protecting you.
Thank you Loyal partner, Faithful friend, You will be greatly missed
