You say I'm "Just a Dog" then why would it be,
if you spell my name backwards god is what you see
I have many jobs, one is protecting your life
or making sure your family's safe
when that prowler is out at night.
My Prayers to Ivan and his Partner and the Department
Ivan May you guard the doors of haven and watch over your Partner from above. Thank you for your service.
