Working Dogs / Dogs with Jobs
Dedicated to all those wonderful dogs who help people by giving unconditional love and friendship and make life a little easier for so many:
To those who would lay down their lives for us and do anything asked of them:
And to those who are so important to Livestock Industries throughout the world:
A Working Dog’s Oath
I will lay down my life for you
and expect nothing but love in return.
I protect my officer with my life,
and would gladly take a bullet in his place.
I am sent in to find lost children
and fugitives on the run.
I find drugs and weapons and even bombs.
I am the first sent in
and sometimes the last to leave.
I am the nose and ears of my officer.
I will protect and serve him.
I would die for him and for you.
I only ask for compassion and a kind word.
