I worked most my entire life

In the public sector.

From cleaning school rooms and picking up after kids to maintaining public parks, to leading a crew and equipment preventing disaster in stormwater/flood control.
All unsung. All noticed only once in a while.

No dog is monogamous.

They all have four paws.
