This song is based on a true story about a little stray dachshund who came to be adopted by the West Allis, WI police department in the 1960's. The uplifting message of the song is that we all do our part to help others, however big or small our role may be. "He never saved a human life, nor rescued anyone. But he was there at close of day, when the officers' work was done. He was so small, a tiny dog, police dog just the same. His name was Herman and they say, one day he simply came." This song was created following an interview with a retired police officer who knew Herman well. Easy piano part. Includes recording and song sheets for students as well as complete sheet music.
