Guardians Of The Night 
Author - Unknown 

Trust in me my friend for I am
your comrade. I will protect you
with my last breath When all
others have left you And the
loneliness of the night closes
in, I will be at your side. 

Together we will conquer all
obstacles, And search out
those who might wish harm to
others. All I ask of you is
compassion, The caring touch
of your hands. It is for you that I
will unselfishly give my life And
spend my nights unrested.
Although our days together
May be marked by the passing
of the seasons Know that each
day at your side is my reward. 

My days are measured by The
coming and going of your
footsteps. I anticipate them at
every opening of the door. You
are the voice of caring when I
am ill. The voice of authority
when I've done wrong. 

Do not chastise me unduly For
I am your right arm, The sword
at your side. I attempt to do
only what you bid of me. I seek
only to please you and remain
in your favor. 

Together you and I shall
experience A bond only others
like us will understand When
outsiders see us together Their
envy will be measured by their
disdain. 

I will quietly listen to you And
pass no judgment, Nor will your
spoken words be repeated I will
remain ever silent, Ever vigilant,
ever loyal. And when our time
together is done And you move
on in the world Remember me
with kind thoughts and tales,
For a time we were unbeatable,
Nothing passed among us
undetected. 

If we should meet again on
another street I will gladly take
up your fight, I am a Police
Working Dog and together We
are guardians of the night.

The Working Dog 
Author - Unknown 

My eyes are your eyes, 
to watch and protect you and yours. 

My ears are your ears, 
to hear and detect evil minds in the dark. 

My nose is your nose, 
to scent the invader of your domain. 

And so you may live, 
my life is also yours.

Called To Give My All
Author - Unknown 

I am a deputy in a canine crew, 
I've been trained to see it through, 
When dangers near my ears perk up, 
They taught me that as a little pup. 

I'm often there to protect your rights, 
My presence sometimes hinders fights. 
I never attack with thoughts to kill, 
When subduing one, my job I fill. 

I never worry a single thought, 
as to how I'll fare at a certain spot, 
The love I have for a handler's care, 
is all I need each day to fare. 

And if someday my luck turns bad, 
I'll relish all the joys I've had, 
To be with men who stand for good, 
in a special kind of brotherhood. 

The story's end by now you know 
of how i tried for a better show, 
I did my best though I did fall, 
When I was called to give my all.
