"Just a Dog" - Just a Dog by Christina Sudduth

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

I would chase down any man who hurt someone,
I would protect you with my life until my job is done

I search for drugs in many different places,
I can pick them out of any thing even though they come in many different phases

I can sniff out a bomb that might be in your child's school,
I would risk being blown up to make sure your child comes home
to you

If you're hurt in the woods or just lost and scared
I will search
as long as it takes to make sure your life is spared

I am loyal to my master for they are first in my eyes,
 I will
always stand beside them for we are partners till I die

Of all these jobs that I do, my most important is protecting you,
protecting your life with the risk of losing mine even though I have never met you

So after all these things that you read,
tell me when you look
into my eyes is "Just a Dog" all you see?
