K-9 Town and Coco the Brave Pomeranian

Now 14 years old and weighing in at 5 lbs., Coco was brought to his people parents, the Tinsleys, from a shelter when he was 4 years old. It was love at first sight. Immediate bonding. A few years later their beloved Mr. Tinsley passed away, Coco and his people ma Bobbie became even closer as they shared their grief.

Not long ago, Bobbie made plans to go with family on a needed vacation. The hardest part was going to be leaving Coco. Not being able to decide which kennel would be best, she took the word of a friend about a “wonderful place” for boarding dogs.
During his stay, Coco was savagely attacked by another animal.  He had no telling marks, they were hidden because of his hair, but after returning Bobbie noticed he was acting strange. It was days after a trip to the emergency room and her vet, 2 little places that had been mentioned abscessed. Little Coco almost died twice. Bobbie never gave up on her baby boy. After a series of laser treatments which brave little Coco responded well to, he began to heel and feel better. The amazing thing about Coco was he kept up his happy spirit. It was so obvious that he was fighting to live, fighting to be his normal self.
One very early morning Coco was let out to do his business but was in a state of mind like never before. He went wandering. He needed something. Even more than Bobbie had to give. He needed a place where……
All of a sudden, and I’ve already proved this can happen, he was at a place he’d never been before and there were canines all around him. All were welcoming and loving like they had always known him.  He met pack leader Omar Blue first, then all the males and females made a fuss over him. This was just what he needed.
Omar Blue let Coco know that once you get to K-9 Town, USA, it’s your home forever. Coco told them all about his people ma Bobbie and how she would miss him so he couldn’t stay but would return often and that’s just what he’s done. Bobbie has no idea what’s come over him but she’s very happy too.

Here’s another reason for Coco’s new attitude. This is his K-9 Town sweetie, Puffy. The female Elders couldn’t wait to get those two together. Aren’t they just too cute.
As I knew they would, not long after Coco’s first visit to K-9 Town, USA, Omar Blue, Rottweiler Brady, Pit Bull Sammy and Wolf Bennie Ba paid that bad kennel a visit. Major Diggs had the job of holding back the rest of the pack.
Between Omar Blue, the pack and his people ma Bobbie I’d say all of Coco’s worries are over.

We try to be careful where we board our furry friends. I'm so glad the true side (top portion) of my story could have a good ending. Coco will never be completely well again but he's doing much better. Bobbie says "at 14, while a bit slower than 10 years ago, he still thinks he's a puppy." I guess that's pretty good considering what he's been through.

A K-9 Town Halloween

I was able to go to K-9 Town again. Don’t ask how, you know I don’t know. I thought about it, it happened. I had a ball. Had no idea what was going on so I watched all I could. The puppies were playing of course, but the Elders were planning something. I could tell. It was so exciting. Later at home, I asked Omar what was going on. After he explained….
I think I finally realized
What Omar intends to do
K-9 Town is almost like a town for me and you
They’re leaving us the bad things
They’re laws reflect the good
They’re even having holidays
I agree, I think they should.
(I’ll get a chance to help again, he, he.)

A K-9 TOWN HALLOWEEN
The puppies were getting ready
For a thing named Halloween
Tonight they could run around and play
Even go where they can’t be seen.

There’s talk about some monsters
And other scary things
But we don’t care we’re going out there
We can handle whatever they bring.

So off they went to run and play
And search for Halloween
They’d go as far and fast as they could
This freedom sure was keen.

They hadn’t really gone too far
But of course they thought they had
When out of the sky came Monster Ghost
This was gonna be real bad.
We heard it loves to eat puppies
The Elders mentioned that tonight
We only want to find Halloween
Now we have to run out of sight.

They ran so hard they didn’t see
The Elders standing by
All they wanted was Halloween
Not that thing from out of the sky.

When they got back to their nice safe den
Laid out and giving thought
Maybe we shouldn’t have run from it
We should have stayed and fought.

Too bad we didn’t think of that
They decided with heavy eyes
Next time we look for Halloween
We’ll catch him by surprise.

The Elders were watching the puppies
As they’d been doing all night
They thanked their good friend Monster Ghost
For helping with Halloween night.

Happy Halloween from
Omar blue and his pack

MY FIRST CHILDREN'S BLOG RADIO INTERVIEW

I don't proclaim to know too much, but I told everything I know. That lady had a way of getting it out of me.

Come listen to what I said to author Renee Hand who has received several awards for her CHILDREN'S BOOKS TO IMPROVE LITERACY, and more. Go to her site and find out why she's such a winner, in addition to wanting to help new authors like me @ http://www.reneeahand.com/.

But not yet! Right now, me, me, me, me.

I have a secret. I stayed up late for two nights preparing my "cheat sheet." I had the answers to any question she would ask right in front of me. I was gonna surprise her with my koolness.
  
Kool or nervous. Don't answer.
 When she started on me I was confident, though you probably won't be able to tell by the way I sounded. I could get to any answer in a split second. I was waiting....

Then she asked a question.

I WENT BLANK! The answer wasn't where I put it, and all of a sudden my tripled spaced sentences were clumped into one big mess of words and I hadn't numbered the pages. I had to wing it. OMG!

Well, I winged it and I'm not saying any more. I hope I've aroused your curiousity.  I have to admit it really was fun. I'll get better at this stuff. If Omar Blue hadn't banned me from the K-9 Underground I'd go there for a while. He's so stubborn.

Do feel free to let me know what you think by leaving a comment. Here's the link. Enjoy @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/storiesfromunknownauthors/2011/10/05/interview-for-omar-blue-and-k-9-town-usa
