Omar Blue - The Takeover - Why The Hate

My little brother Babee Blue is finally home! Ma brought him home. She says I can't take him to K-9 Town today because he's too little. I'll see what she says tomorrow.






In the meantime, I'm Babee sitting. (pun intended) I have to watch him every minute, Ma says, until we teach him right from wrong.


"Stop eating that grass, Babee Blue!!"



While laying here sunning and watching Babee Blue, I'm thinking about my pack at K-9 Town.


My older brother Thor, from Iron Dog Land, said wolf Bennie Ba had him captivated when he told him about how he grew up and how the hate began between him and Shocka Din.

I'm going to let you in on it.


Excerpt from The Takeover.....



Thor finally got a chance to be alone with Bennie Ba after every male, female, and puppy had welcomed him. During the welcoming, he had taken the opportunity to confirm his thoughts about Omar’s pack. Thor knew fighters. There wasn’t one dog here he wouldn’t be happy to have at his side in a situation that demanded bravery. Each member of the pack looked him in the eyes, respectfully, but as equals. He liked that. 

Thor knew about Bennie’s past as The Ghost. He wanted to hear more about Shocka Din and his followers, their strengths, and weaknesses. He was also c
urious about how the hatred had started between the wolf Bennie Ba and timber wolf Shocka Din.

As if reading his mind, Bennie began.


 “I guess I can tell you all you want to know.

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. One day they decided I was too much trouble. They up and left me to fend for myself.

I was sad and afraid at first, but that didn’t last. I was lucky. The things I found to eat made me big and strong. My sickness passed.

I met Shocka when we were both young. He and his siblings had lost their Ma and Pa in a fire. There were three of them.

I showed them how to hunt and find food to stay alive. Shocka and I got along but the other two were mean and sneaky. They hated me because I was white colored and different. They didn’t like that I could live on my own because they knew they couldn’t.

I never said anything to Shocka Din but I knew they were going to try something one day. I stayed on my guard.

I was off by myself when they finally got up the nerve to jump me. They didn’t know me as well as they thought they did.

Being young, strong and more dangerous than they knew, I killed one and hurt the other real bad.

When Shocka returned and saw what I had done, we fought. He was a better fighter than both of them put together. We hurt each other pretty bad, but survived to go our separate ways.

He became a feared pack leader. I became The Ghost,” Bennie recalled.

“Our hate continues, though if I were him I would have done the same that day.

I admit to taking out a few of his followers, who thought they would get in Shocka’s good grace by doing away with me.

Our paths have crossed many times, each time ending in bloodshed. Then there was the nastiest fight of all, but that’s the one that led me to Omar Blue and the rest of my family here. I’m not even mad about that one anymore.”

Thor looked at Bennie and said, “I would have loved to have been at your side for some of those fights.”

 “Wish you were,” Bennie answered as both of them grinned and imagined the outcomes.


Bennie Ba was glad to have Thor with him. There was something about Thor that reminded him of himself. They were drawn to each other and had become good friends in a short time.

Bennie continued by telling Thor all he could about the situation at hand.

They agreed something had to be done to help Omar. Neither wanted to admit their desire for action was really because they were unable to stay idle. Both knew that Omar was a formidable opponent and could handle any situation that might arise.

Bennie and Thor were working on solving their dilemma when Major Diggs walked up and looked at each of them suspiciously.

-----------------------------------
That's how the hate between Bennie Ba and Shocka Din started. It makes me know how lucky I am to have grown up with so much love from my Ma's and Pa's.
Babee Blue is going to know the same kind of love, between Ma, my K-9 Town pack and me of course.

Omar Blue, Babee Blue and the Naughty Puppies


I'm still waiting for my baby brother, Babee Blue. Ma keeps saying he'll be home soon. Does anyone know when "soon" is?
Look at him. Five weeks old, weighing in at 8 lbs., 14 oz. He's growing pretty fast. "Soon" can't be much longer.


Me and Ma have been doing a lot of talking about puppies lately. Of course, that brings to mind the K-9 Town puppies again. Babee Blue will have so much fun with them. He has so much to learn.
When we first started K-9 Town, the puppies were stubborn and didn't want to learn anything. Did we tell you about that?
Bet Ma wouldn't mind telling you.

No Omar, I wouldn't mind at all. Here goes....





Was a balmy dark September day, in K-9 Town, USA.
The Elders were hunting and harvesting food, while the puppies, of course, were at play.
Now what’s wrong with this picture? I said “September day.”
The puppies should be in training, but the teacher has gone away.

Boy, how the little tikes loved it, but the Elders could certainly see,
they were getting into more mischief, and wilder than they should be.

We have to find a new teacher, the last one won’t be back.
He left to help some kin folk, he had to leave the pack.


Omar Blue was thoughtful, remembering back a ways,
when Rottweiler Brady had told him, about his teaching days.




So he went to talk to Brady, who’d just married Sophie Jean.
He asked if he would help out, he and his poodle queen.

Brady was excited, because teaching was his second love.
He’d do the job, with Sophie’s help, and some from the Gods above.





Omar Blue called a meeting, everything was gonna be great.
Professor Brady and Sophie Jean, would keep those puppies straight.


Meanwhile at the edge of town, under The Big Oak Tree.
The puppies sat and talked about, how great it was to be free!


The Chihuahua triplet leaders, were never seen apart.
As soon as one would say a word, the other two would start.

They became the yipping leaders, since it was always three to one.
The others took to listening, cause nothing else could be done.

“Let’s get the other puppies,” said leaders Lee, Lii and Luu.
“Make them come quick as they can, we’ve got some news for you.”





When the other pups got to the tree, they told what they had heard.
Rottie Brady is gonna be the new teacher, now isn’t that absurd?

We’ll have a ball in training this fall, not gonna listen “neither!”
We’ll run and skip and play in class, he won’t do nothing “either!”

 

When the first day came for training, each puppy came in mad.
He asked them why? They didn't lie, "Cause being here makes us
sad."

Then Lee, Lii and Luu got busy, even had the nerve to stand.
Said, “We pups have had a meeting, we don’t need no teacher’s hand.”


Professor Brady gave a look they’d never seen before.
He said, “You three you come with me," as he headed for the door.

The three got up but slowly, showing fear the others could see.
As they watched, each puppy said under their breath, "It's better them than me."

Brady spoke to them real softly, “I know the leaders, you three.
But, don’t you come into my class, and think you’ll interrupt me.




We were put here for a reason, me and Ms. Sophie Jean.
Gonna teach you either way we can. Can be nice, or we can be mean.

 
Now Lee, Lii and Luu git in there, and show what smart leaders do.
Listen to us teachers, and we'll be good to you.”

Lee, Lii and Luu went back to class. Each quickly took their seat.
Sat up so nice and straight this time, couldn’t even see their feet.

“What happened, yipped Cocker puppy Joe. “What did he do out there?”
 “He gave a speech, about how they’d teach, said we’d better all beware.
 
He also made us leaders, so listen to what we say.
You don’t wanna go outside with him, cause Professor Brady don’t play!”

Omar Blue - The Takeover - Nitro and Saifon Blue



Hi everyone. Just got in. Excuse me but I'm almost asleep on my feet. I started back to work today. If you recall, I had been a little under the weather. Don't worry, I'm okay and feeling good.

Remember, I'm our company's mascot. We're working hard to get people to know about BiggSiss. With all the violence going on around us, there is definitely a need for a cyber confidant to tell about your good, bad and unusual encounters. We call it,  "leaving a trail," just in case the unthinkable happens....If you haven't visited BiggSiss, see what we're about at http://biggsiss.com.

I'm going to get undressed and comfortable. Ma is going to update you on what's going on with my canine family.


Saifon and Nitro found out about the timber wolves coming to K-9 Town. Not good!



If you happen to wonder how I was at two places at one time, when I was a puppy, don't. You'll never figure it out.


Here comes Ma with our snacks.

"I'm ready, Ma."





Excerpt from The Takeover

Saifon Blue jumped up from a disturbing sleep. Her dangerous snarl and aggressive stance would have brought all around her into submission, all but her mate, Nitro Blue. But, they were alone.

The King and Queen of Iron Dog Land, Nitro and Saifon ruled the land of Dobermans with love and affection as well as sternness when needed.  There was never a question of leadership since Nitro and Saifon had proven, repeatedly, that they were superior.



They looked at each other and exclaimed at the same time, “Omar!”

Nitro had foreseen this moment and was ready for it.

 “My baby boy is in trouble,” Saifon exclaimed. “We must go to him. Wake the others,” she commanded.

“Calm down, Saifon,” Nitro said, “and accept what you really feel.” 

Saifon took a slow deep breath and seemed to go into a trance. She came out of it somewhat relaxed. She said, “He’s okay, but there’s a threat.”

Nitro looked into Saifon’s beautiful eyes.  They possessed a rare color shared by no other animal in the land and had taken control of him long ago. “There will always be a threat in the life Omar has chosen, Saifon. We have taught him to handle threats and he has exceeded our expectations,” Nitro said soothingly. “To go to his K-9 Town now would not be the thing to do. He won’t want us there.

“If the danger grows to a point beyond his capabilities,” Nitro continued, “we will know, and we will be there for him and for those who follow him.” 

As usual, Nitro was right. Omar was kind and loving, but when threatened he was as fierce and savage as his father, Saifon thought to herself with pride. She had also seen first-hand that his pack was brave and loyal and would follow their leader without hesitation no matter what the circumstance.

Though she wasn’t worried to the extent that she and Nitro needed to go to Omar, she still wanted to know what was going on at K-9 Town. She decided this was a job for the warrior eagle, McZen.

There was an unexplainable connection between Saifon and McZen. They had been together for a long time. She could see things through his eyes and understand his thoughts no matter how far away he might be. As a puppy, she used this gift to her advantage.

Eagle McZen was a good friend and a great warrior. The two of them had more than once battled their way out of danger.

That was some time ago.

Omar Blue grew up with McZen as his puppy sitter. As a youngster, Omar frequently managed to slip away from the other puppies. Saifon shuttered when she remembered some of the scuffles Omar and McZen had gotten into, or out of, by themselves in the wilderness.

It took all the restraint Saifon could muster not to interfere in Omar’s scuffles; but she never did. King Nitro would not hear of it and she knew he was right. Omar Blue had to learn how to survive under any circumstances. And he did.

Omar became a master of survival at a young age and because of this, too soon, it became obvious that Omar had grown restless. This was what led him to leave his home. She and Nitro had seen it coming. However, there was nothing they could do about it.

Saifon was happy now because Omar was no longer restless. That was evident. His new life, leadership, and friends had filled the void.

Nitro wasn’t worried about Omar but remembered their oldest son, Thor, talking about visiting K-9 Town to run with Wolf Bennie Ba. Thor and Bennie had kidded each other about who was fastest. This might be a good time for his son to visit Bennie.

If there was any trouble, and he’d better not start it, Thor would be the one to have with Omar and his pack. A fighter of unbeaten stature, but as fun loving as a dog could be, he and Wolf Bennie Ba had hit it off right away when the pack came to meet Omar’s kin. Thor had promised Bennie he would visit.

Whether or not Omar would like those two wild ones putting their heads together right now was something he wouldn’t worry about Nitro thought, with a sly smile covering his soft laughter.

That evening as Nitro and Saifon Blue sat with members of their canine family, enjoying the peace and comfort of Iron Dog Land, both looked out over the hills in time to see two tiny figures, one flying and one running at top speed, fade into the beautiful sunset. Each knew what the other had done.




They avoided each other’s eyes but offered smiles they knew were for each other.




THE TAKEOVER - COMING VERY SOON. STAY TUNED.

Omar Blue - The Takeover and The Puppies' Strategy






I'm waiting for my new baby brother, Babee Blue. He isn't home yet because he's too little, but Ma says he'll be here soon.


I'm going to teach him all kinds of stuff.


The K-9 Town puppies and the visiting potbelly piglets want Babee Blue to hurry too. They want him with them when the timber wolf pups try to take over. He should be ready by then. Here he is. Already 11 days old.





Excerpt from "The Takeover"


The K-9 Town puppies decided they would teach the potbellied piglets how to protect themselves. If there were big bad, mean timber wolves, there had to be little bad, mean timber wolves. Puppies and piglets agreed, they had to be ready. 

They first made an opening in the bushes nearby, just big enough for timber wolf pups to know that it was for them. This was the timber wolf puppy trap.

Unfortunately, piglet training wasn't going well. The baby potbelly pigs were having too much fun with this new contact activity. So much, that they were giving no consideration to the puppies well thought out plan.


No matter what the puppies tried, the little porky babies ended up sprawled out on top of them. The puppies were starting to ache and feel sore from this training effort.


They finally decided to try another tactic. The K-9 Town puppies would lure the wolf pups through the timber wolf puppy trap. The piglets would then sprawl out on top of the little trouble making wolves.


Of course, puppy nor piglet gave thought to the fact that the same protective eyes that were watching them during their current entertaining antics, would be watching them during any confrontation. In addition, when danger became evident, the babies would do what they were trained by the elders to do, without hesitation. This alone would render them unavailable for any altercation.


After the exhaustive teaching exercises and a meal that left them wanting nothing but a resting place, both puppies and piglets were asleep in no time at all.


Potbelly pigs Sookie and Mookie's son Dukie decided he'd rest with Rottweiler Brady's bunch. It's not unusual to find this, considering the close relationships.




Timber Wolf Shocka Din and his vicious followers want to disrupt and possibly end the way of life in K-9 Town and the surrounding areas that our friends call home? 


Never happen!!






COMING SOON - "THE TAKEOVER"

Omar Blue - I'm Okay, Don't Worry



Hi Everyone. I've been busy having surgery for my Cancer. I'm feeling fine but Ma found lumps so she had them taken out of me.

Now she's keeping a sharp eye on me. I came out here to get away. I was going to take a quick trip to K-9 Town, but there she is in the doorway.

I'm watching you Omarrrr! Don't you leave this yard!!!


Oh well.... Anyway, don't forget, like Ma told you before, you should always check us for any kind of growths and make sure its nothing serious.

Guess what! I've got a baby brother. His name is Babee Blue. I can hardly wait for him to come home. I'm gonna teach him everything I know.

I've told my pack and the K-9 Town puppies can't wait to meet him. They say they are going to teach him everything "they" know too. Oh boy!

I have a picture of him for you to see. Take a look. He's the cute one.


I want Babee Blue to come home now, but Ma says he has to get bigger first. Lots of my friends have little brothers and sisters. Now I'll have one too.

I'll keep you posted.

Love youuuu. And don't worry, I'm okay.

Omar Blue and the K-9 Town Takeover





Coming soon! 

A one of a kind adventure


I've been telling everyone about the timber wolves that plan to take over Omar Blue's beloved K-9 Town. 



Shocka Din and his vicious followers shouldn't have gone to K-9 Town.  Omar and his pack are teaching them that......very slowly.



Excerpt:



Wolf Bennie Ba was looking down on a pack of timber wolves, led by his old enemy, Shocka Din. This was the same group that had pounced on him a while back, when he was running wild and known as "The Ghost."

It seemed so long ago.


The timber wolves left him for dead after the attack. They dragged away the two pack members he had killed in the fight and tended to a scar that Shocka would wear forever.






Bennie had to discover Shocka Din's plans. If the timber wolves planned to do harm to Omar Blue and the pack who had found and nursed him back to good health, it would be worth all he could give, including his life, to find out.

Omar and the K-9 Town pack were his family. They had brought out qualities that he never realized he possessed. Additionally, he was feeling better than he ever had, thanks to the females’ nurturing ways.

This was his train of thought as he bravely walked into the camp of Shocka Din.

Wolf Bennie Ba was again, The Ghost.

If trouble started here, there would be a few less for Omar Blue to handle because he intended to leave his mark. He would start with Shocka Din.

Big black timber wolf Shocka Din couldn't conceal his amazement when he saw The Ghost push his way through his followers to come face to face with him.



“Well, well,” he snarled. “We heard you were in the area. I have to admit you look pretty good considering how we left you.”

“Bet you can't say that about the two you all had to drag away,” said The Ghost.

“Ha. What do you want here and what makes you think you'll get away alive, Ghost?” growled Shocka Din with a deadly look on his face.

“I want to know why you're here. You know I don't have a problem dying,” said The Ghost.

Shocka looked hard, remembering what a fierce warrior The Ghost was. No, he didn't have a problem dying and no doubt would take more of Shocka's followers with him.

There would be plenty of time to avenge the followers savagely killed by The Ghost. With that in mind, Shocka decided there was no reason not to tell The Ghost his plans.

Shocka began, but was interrupted. “By the way, said The Ghost, I'm called Bennie Ba now.

You can call me Bennie,” he said, amused at Shocka Din's expression........


That was my friend Bennie Ba. He's as brave and loyal as they come. My whole pack is that way.



There's plenty going on at K-9 Town right now. Me and my pack love the excitement. We're taking it as it comes. Until we're ready to put an end to it.



Ma's gonna tell you the whole story in our new book, THE TAKEOVER.



Coming soon!
