Johnny has a special friend of the canine kind;
"Ginger" is her name, and she has a keen mind.

She is a Golden Lab with a heart full of love,
And if kids are mean, she'll give 'em a little shove!

For Johnny is in a wheelchair and can't do much;
He needs a special canine companion's touch!!

Light gold fur with big, soft, moist eyes of brown;
She has the personality of a funny circus clown!!

But all work when it comes to her master's needs;
She is all heart when his tender little heart bleeds.

Picking up after him, picking up things off the floor;
Even will follow him and even open up the door!

At his command, she serves this sweet little boy;
She is better than any video game or childish toy!

She gives him love in an unspoiled, sweet way,
And she will gladly lick his hurt or his tears away!!

Yes, Johnny needs a helping hand, but in the end--
He has a special companion, a true canine friend!!

Helping dogs are an amazing bunch. They do so much for their disabled masters, and they give their masters so much in the way of independence and freedom..not to mention, unconditional love from the heart!! a HEARTY salute to these special dogs; they are TRUE heroes of the canine kind!!
