Who's Protecting Who - It doesn't matter!

The Potbelly Pigs are some of our best friends so naturally I sent a few of us, to fetch them here. I wanted them to be safe at K-9 Town, with us looking after them, when those no-count timber wolves showed up.

I never told you how that shameful Rottie Brady had us all rolling over, howling with jaws aching from laughing, before he finished telling how that little fighter pig, Leo, (mis)interpreted my invite and got the rest of them hollering and screaming that they were coming to save K-9 Town. Those brave porkies came running in here, panting, bellies juggling, tails wagging, ready to do battle and they didn't care against what. It took the female's calming techniques to settle them. Us males were no help. We were labeled, instigators...Grin

Anyway! Here's how Leo got the others so riled up:

Episode 3 - Potbellies to the Rescue (Excerpt) 


With eyes narrowing, head up and corkscrew tail sticking straight out, quivering, Leo pushed his way through oodles of supersized pot bellies, then jerking his head from side to side, eyeing every pig at the gathering, he chimed in, as they listened intently. 

"You heard our friends! They need our help at K-9 Town! What should we do? Stay here to protect our homes, in case those cruel, wandering timber wolves come this way? Or, band with our friends, and beat the tar out of those murdering no-good misfits?!"

Wolf Bennie Ba's Story - The puppies want it!

Omar Blue

Hi everyone. I hope you are listening to Ma, and staying safe and healthy.

I'm waiting with the puppies, for that big lug, Wolf Bennie Ba. As well-loved as he is now, there was a time when his ways would have curdled your blood. He was a real devil. I'm talking about the life he led before finding us, and the hate between him and the timber wolf, Shocka Din. 

The puppies have been after him to tell them what happened to cause all that hate. They've stampeded him, followed him around, entertained him with baby howling contests, Ahoooowl!!...      Ahoowl!... Ahooooowl!!..., and more, determined not to let up until he caved in. Bennie don't like a lot of attention, but he sure loves our little playful, naughty, puppies. We all knew he'd give in. Here he comes now, moseying along, trying to think of a way to get out of this. Gazing at me, for help. I'm avoiding his eyes. Nope. Not this time, Bennie. All in the name of love... Hahahaha! 

"Speed it up, Bennie Boy! That's the only way you're gonna get through this! And I'm staying to listen, in case you try to pull a fast one and skip some. Quiet those puppies down and get started!"

Some friend!... I see him giggling!... He'll explode if he don't let it out!... Hope he does, AhHahahaha. "Okay, okay! I'm here! Settle down pups! Le, Li and Lu, stop triple teaming Cocker Joe! You know he'll get you back. Those Chihuahuas...I swear. Joe, wait until later. Sit down now! I'm starting!"

Here goes. Shocka and me are close in age, with just about the same start.

As a little pup I was sickly. My Ma and Pa were wild. They'd leave me for days at a time, with no food, to struggle along. One day they decided I was still too much trouble. They up and left me to fend for myself. Didn't even say good by. 

"Oh no!" Sympathetic puppy shrieks.

I was sad and afraid at first, but that didn’t last. I taught myself to hunt and live off the land. I got strong and my sickness passed.

I met Shocka when we were both youngins. He and his siblings had lost their Ma and Pa in a fire. There were three of them. They wouldn't have lasted long. I showed them how to hunt, find food and who their enemies were.  Shocka and I got along but the other two were mean and sneaky. They hated me because I was white colored and different, and didn’t like that I could live on my own, because they knew they couldn’t. I never said anything to Shocka Din because they were his kin, but I knew the two no-goods were going to try something one day. I stayed on my guard! he added, eyes narrowed, back hunched, for effect.

We should have been there with you, Bennie. We would have whipped those bad timber wolves and made them sorry, spouted the pups, unsuccessfully imitating Bennie's eyes and stance.

Holding back his amusement. I was off by myself one day, when they finally got up the nerve to jump me. Did it while my back was turned!! But, they didn’t know me as well as they thought they did. I was much stronger and more dangerous than they knew.  Something came over me during that fight. I beat them bad. Threw everything I'd learned at them! I was a wilderness savage and I couldn't have stopped if I wanted to!... pausing, relaxing tense muscles. I killed one and hurt the other real bad.

When Shocka returned and saw what I had done, he came at me like one of those crazy wild boars we tell you to stay away from! We fought, fought, and fought some more! Biting... kicking... gouging...,  paying no attention to the blood we were spurting out! He was more a fighter than both his brothers put together. 

We hurt each other severely that day, but survived to go our separate ways. Total silence from the intense wide-eyed minis as images of the confrontation overwhelmed them. After that fight, we parted ways! Shocka went on to become a mean, cruel, pack leader. I became known as The Ghost, a wild, vicious animal that didn't care if I lived or died.

I admit to being as mean as Shocka Din at the time, and putting down a few of his followers who thought they would get in his good grace, by doing away with me. I'd have started after them anyway, but they didn't give me a chance. That's the life I was living.

Shocka and my paths have crossed a few times since then, each time ending in bloodshed. Then, there was the nastiest fight of all. They almost killed me that time, but that’s the one that led me to that mischief making leader of ours over there, Omar Blue, you puppies, and the rest of my family here, so I'm not complaining... You all know, you're the best things to ever happen to me?!! 

Ahooooowl!! came the long, loving, small fries' unanimous howls. Undoubtedly, ready to get away, so they could duplicate some of Bennie's battles, the excited fur-babies ended the gathering by circling Bennie, tripping over each other, as usual, and receiving his heartfelt pats and strokes. 

When they scampered away, we could hear them yammering about how they would have handled Shocka Din's back biting, ornery kin.

Uh oh! Here comes Bennie.

Omar Blue, you're really something!... You know that! he growled, tight lipped and eyes bulging, feigning anger at his  dear friend.

Yep, I know! Come on, Pal. Let's go find some berry juice. You deserve it!

Babee Blue and the Tween Dog Coaches

I'm on my way to get Babee. Ma says he's full of energy and needs to be around me and some of his tween friends, here at K-9 Town, for a while.

At our morning meeting, we decided to let them coach this years Dog Ballgames. 

We're having tryouts today. The young coaches have been practicing calls. They've added a few, along with body language that borders contortion. This is going to be quite interesting, and lots of fun. 

I'd better go. Babee's waiting for me.

Here comes Omar. I'm ready! I'm going to be head coach at the Dog Ballgames, because I'm experienced. I coached the puppies last year. My friends are fine with that, especially since I'm bringing them the coach hats that Ma's sending. Also because I'm Omar's baby brother, they think I have leadership qualities.

This is a big deal. I think every dog in K-9 Town is here to support their favorites. We have outsiders looking on too. There's Nasty Sam the grizzly with one of his friends... "Hey Nastyyy!"

Omar says, they know better than to start anything, so I won't even go there. 

Let The Tryouts Begin!! We have teams and singles.

Here's last years champs. They're the team to beat, looking better than ever.

These two have such good moves that the champs have already claimed them. Gonna take a good team to beat this bunch.

Talk about a good team.....

These are my friends all the way from Facebook's Rottweiler & Company (All Breed Group) page. They've been practicing for weeks and now they're showing their stuff. We'll be watching them closely. The jokesters have a way of planting look-a-like balls in the field... All in fun, but there'll be none of that on our watch. Hahaha.

Okay coaches, let's see some singles!

This is also a good Facebook friend, JJ Pinscher. Look at that move. You can see why all the teams are watching him. I've seen him in action. They ain't seen nothing yet!

Wait a minute! What's going on. Oh no! One of the puppy teams thought they could slip through. It didn't work. My coaches are on the ball, pun intended. They're so cute, when they're angry. Lol. This is the team that got time out for unnecessary roughness last season. Maybe they would do okay. Just kidding. Their games will start when it gets a little warmer.

There's Afghan Bee Bee, showing one of her moves that's taken her teams to victories. She has her pick of the teams. A real winner.

Now don't let Bruno's size fool you. He's waiting for his team. They're small and fast, with creative moves that spellbind the rest of us... "Over here, Bruno! We're ending tryouts for today, but will be hard at it again tomorrow. Find a spot and settle down. The celebration will start soon!"

Oh yeah! We're having a party tonight. Don't tell Ma. She thinks we'll be resting. Or does she?

Uh Oh! The grizzlys heard me. Their coming this way. I'll let Omar tell them that they're not invited.

Omar Blue's Altered Reality

We would like to invite all of our fantasy loving, thrill-seeking friends to join the vision.

Omar and his enthusiastic pack are sharing their exhilarating adventures as a serial in the popular fantasy publication, "Altered Reality Magazine."

Before sending them over to check out our spot, I adamantly sought a group promise... No roughhousing, bruhahas or free-for-alls. After the familiar playful, wide eyed grumblings, they assured me they would "try to" behave. 

I never expect more than that, but I couldn't help myself. I peeped in on them. In doing so, I witnessed happy growls, snickerings, wagging tails and weird body language. In other words, they were having a ball.

I was still admiring them, when their energies began to wane. Then suddenly, everything came to a spellbindng halt. It was the melodious howling of Luther the Bloodhound that took over the calming. That big dog was mesmerizing. The transformation, was a sight to behold.

I noticed, just before Luther tuned up, Omar was at his side. No doubt the leader expedited the perfect ending to a flawless exploration.

He and the rest of my unique darlings are back at K-9 Town now. Resting after their new experience and looking forward to their next visit to Altered Reality.

Join us!

Babee learns a lesson

Before I left home there were a few things I had to teach Babee. I told him he needs to go with Ma everywhere she goes, to look after her. I taught him what to try, if she resists. A couple of twirls, a big smile with a couple of cute grunts or sitting extra tall with sad eyes, preferably in front of the door. 

If none of that works, try that pitiful look you give when you want her to believe there's a reason why you're doing something... It's worth a try, I added, though I had my doubts about that one. Hahaha.

We did some field training. That was fun. "When you see you've circled the same place a few times, offer a little directional help. She'll expect it."

Babee, recently tried to use what I taught him to trick Ma. "Make a left at the light this time," he uttered suspiciously. He didn't expect the response.

 "Shame on you, Babee. Trying to fool me. That's the way to Petco!" 

Lesson completed, by the best teacher. After all, she taught me.

What's Ma up to now

Ma:  I'm proud and excited that my big boy Omar Blue and his magnificent pack at K-9 Town will be sharing their adventures as a serial in the popular fantasy publication, "Altered Reality Magazine."

Omar and his pack are very happy. They love sharing their unique exploits. At the meeting below, one of his friends jovially inquired, "Does this mean we're celebrities, Omar." The others couldn't contain themselves.  They hooted until their stomachs and jaws ached. Silly things. Including Omar Blue. long as they're happy, I'm happy. 

Omar will keep you posted. He doesn't want anyone to miss their debut. Neither do I.

Omar Blue and the K-9 Town puppy dilemma

Babee Blue:  I'm back home now. I was at K-9 Town last weekend with my big brother Omar. There was some excitement.  This is what happened.

A puppy had gone missing
we didn't know where could it be
none of us had seen it
no clue!

We had a town meeting 
a decision was made
we had to go tell
“Omar Blue”.

The best leader ever
my big brother is so smart
and as brave as he can be.

He even looked into
the mountain lions' den
but the puppy
he still did not see.

Then a thought came to Omar
 one missing piece
he hadn’t talked with its kin!

So he went to the mommy
who suddenly recalled
her litter was nine
and not ten!

When the forlorn pack, including me, found this out, we were so happy, that we couldn't contain our joy. Guess you can say we went wild(er). Nothing like this had ever happened before.  It was more proof that leader Omar could solve any problems that might arise.

What a weekend it was!

Ma's getting our snacks now. She wants me to tell her all about it. 

Somehow I think she already knows.

Missing big brother

Babee Blue:  Ma, can I go to K-9 Town this weekend to see my big brother Omar, and play with my friends?

Ma:  Okay, Babee. I'm sure he misses you too.

Omar Blue and the K-9 Town Spirits

Spirits dancing in the sky
Observing Omar’s pack
Lurking figures gathering
They leave but soon come back.
What do they seek
No way to know
They never interfere
Maybe they’re just curious
Content to only stare.

Omar Blue, Puppy Cooper and the K-9 Town Family

Omar Blue:
I’m super happy. I have a new family member. His name is Cooper and he’s the smallest member of my family, in the outer world. He’s not going to grow big.  He has some Chihuahua in him.  Babee Blue says he’s a feisty little guy.

Here he is having his first battle. Only nine weeks old.  As you can see, Cooper won. Hahaha.

 He’s Ma’s grandbaby so he’s automatically a member of my pack. We had to get him here to meet us, as soon as we could. The females needed to check him out and Chihuahuas Paco and Conchita came to me about him.

“When is he coming, Omar. He needs to be here.”

I surprised them. I had already made plans with Ma to get him here.

Here’s Ma and Poodle Sophie Jean. You already know, Sophie is the leader when it comes to the puppies. The other females were outside, after visiting for a while.  They were excited and couldn’t wait to get baby Cooper back to K-9 Town where me, the other males and the puppies were waiting impatiently.

When he arrived he was everything we’d hoped for. 

After a thorough going over by the females and some tossing around by us males, Cooper headed for the puppies.

He fit right in.  I’m not going to mention any of their mischievous exploits. Ma has a way of finding out about those things anyway, but she knows there is never a safety issue when he’s with me at K-9 Town.

Cooper’s first visit here was too short but I had to keep my word to Ma and he was getting tired, as puppies always do, after a while.  Fun filled play with the puppies here zapped his energy, though he’d never admit it.

Here he is back at his home, with his big brother brock who has the patience of a Saint and is enjoying the newest member of the family, immensely.

I remember when Brock was just a pup. Here he is with Sophie Jean. They’re taking a nap during one of her visits to see him.  Brock visits K-9 Town too, but he’s usually busy hanging with his Ma, my human sister, Joy.

I watch over him too and Babee Blue visits him often. 

Love all around.  Always.

Hurry back.

Omar Blue
