A K-9 Town, USA Christmas

Omar never believes me when I tell him how much K-9 Town, USA needs me. Well, it happened again. More doggie sitting this time. I really didn't care because I got to see Omar's Pack again. In addition, I got to see the abused and lonely canines they had rescued. All of them are happy and healthy. Here's how it started....

Me and Omar had a talk
About Christmas Eve this year
Little did I know at the time
Their plans were already in gear.

Ma, we need your help again

I did know there was something up
I could tell it by that smile
He was hesitating to ask me
If some friends could visit awhile.

They’ll just be here a minute Ma
You’ll get to see them again too
They’re people parents will let them come
If they think it’s given by you.

You know my new friend Baxter
The adorable Basset Hound
Adopted by neighbors Matt and Sara
Who love having him around.

I’m taking him to K-9 Town
See him waiting over there
The others will be here shortly
To be put into your care.

Omar said just stand here and look cute

We’re having a Christmas party
Santa Claus is coming too
The puppies have vowed to be good all day
I don’t know about that, do you.
I thought about the party
How Baxter would have much fun
How could I think of spoiling it
Okay Omar Blue you’ve won.

I really did it for Omar
But admit I was thinking too
This might be my chance to get back there
If so, I’d come back and tell you.

I took in some of Omar’s friends
Their people parents suspicious
 I gave them each a homemade cake
Which they knew would be delicious.

Again, I went to K-9 Town
Please don’t ask how I did
But as soon as I got to the Christmas Party
I found a place and hid

What a party those canines were having
At K-9 Town, USA
When Santa and Omar finally appeared
With reindeers pulling the sleigh.

Ho, Ho, Ho!

 The puppies were sleeping

No fault of their own

They’d been running and playing all day.

Santa went over
Left each a big treat
And was on his merry way.

Back to the party Santa Claus went
What a way to end his night
With Omar, his pack and their canine friends
He stayed until first light.

When Santa was about to fly off
He took time out to say
“Ho, Ho, Ho! What A Merry Christmas”
Then Santa was on his way.



  1. I love your Christmas post! My imagination is running totally wild as I imagine Omar and all his friends having this great Christmas party! We've always adopted all our dogs from our local Humane Society and I think they would all love Omar and his pack!

  2. Thanks for the kind comments. One thing for sure, your dogs would be welcome at K-9 Town anytime. I read your comment to Omar. He got that look in is eyes. "No Omar Blue, I'm not doggie sitting again (for a while.)"
