Walking Alone In The Dark

This one is for all the old K-9er's out there I hope you enjoy it..

Dark comes and it's just the two of you
One talking the other only listening
A one way conversation both knowing what to do
Walking alone in the dark

Even though one does not speak
Each know what they are thinking
Threats of all types they seek
Walking alone in the dark

Making you feel secure and safe
He rubs your leg with his face
You place in him a great faith
Walking alone in the dark

You stoke his head with your hand
That great wonderful K-9 dog
With you and you alone he will make a stand
Walking alone in the dark

Both knowing what to do in danger
He is your security as you are his
Beyond being each others protector
Walking alone in the dark

There are others that you guard
They know not that you are there
Only that from them the enemy is barred
Walking alone in the dark

Sleeping safe as you keep watch
Those unsung heroes and their dogs
Men and their K-9 are all topnotch
Walking alone in the dark
