A Seeing Eye Dog's Perspective

Don’t mess with me; I’ve been highly trained
And no one will ever see me chained

I have a leash to walk my owner
And I’m a universal donor

No fleas will anyone find on me
I’ve eyes for a man who cannot see

I get to go into bakeries
Cookies tossed my way I always seize

You may chuckle at the life I lead
German Shepherds are the smartest breed

Though some spend hours running from children
I have a comfy bed at day’s end

But I take my work seriously
And take comfort knowing that he needs me



*Entry for Tanya Harrington’s “Dog Gone Tales”
