Your Canine Crusader

So many movies,
And TV shows,
Feature one person,
Who instinctively knows…

What needs protecting, Who’s in a bind,
Who’s in a pickle,
Of one – or another – kind.

So many people,
Prattle on about traits,
Like personal strength,
Or what courageousness takes…

Doing the hard stuff,
Being there for others,
Seeing the big picture,
And caring ‘bout your brothers.

So many times,
I think I fail to be, The canine crusader, You once saw in me…

Protective, Observant, Reflective, And obedient.

And, yet,
You love me,
Despite my flaws,
Or, maybe, because of them?
