Saw this and thought it might be nice to pass on to others.

Thank you to all Police K9's and their handlers.

Life Of A Police Dog


Author - Unknown


We're both partners and buddies in blue. We did school demos and never did wrong, Over the years, my love did grow strong. How I loved to work, 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 by your wife, I knew at that moment, I'd give you my life. The bullet struck hard, steady and true, The bullet struck me, it did not strike you. When you go home, 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 so true, But I've done my job well in protecting you.

"My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces."
