There's lots of room in heaven
for the young and very old-
and those who are the heroes
who's stories should be told.

Each man and dog are given
a special job to do,
but cops need help from time to time
and someone to carry them too.

So God sends angels to the earth
for jobs that must be done
when man just can't accomplish
the task that has begun.

An officer, a soldier or maybe
just a friend,
dogs never fail where they've been sent
to care for those they tend.

God put His name on backwards
on life's spokes within the cog
Angels we've been blessed with -
Angels just spelled - dog.

You will Never Be forgotten RIP K9 Koda
