On Dog Duty

On Dog Duty

We picked dogs up and  brought them into our home
They were also born to be free and to roam  
But they had very little choice

They are always so loving loyal and good 
And deserve much more than water, warmth and food
Give them something to play with and  enjoy
A dog friend,  and maybe  a toy they  can destroy
