Valentines Day at K-9 Town, USA

He's the only wolf in Omar's pack at K-9 Town but he loves and is loved by the Elders and puppies alike.

Wolf Bennie Ba has really calmed down from his wild days when he was known as  "The Ghost." The mention of his name made other animals seek shelter. Not at K-9 Town, USA though. I guess that's why he decided that's where he wanted to be.

One day last week Omar asked if I would like to meet Wolf Bennie Ba. I said, "Of course!" Out of all the K-9 Town canines, I found Wolf Bennie Ba one of the most interesting. He spends most of his time patrolling K-9 Town's perimeters. He's very protective and Omar says it was a good day when the pack took Bennie in.

Omar told me to look out the window.

 He was beautiful! Look what I saw waiting in my backyard. I waved him in and he came. I should have known they had something special in mind. Remember K-9 Town has adopted human holidays and they are very serious about celebrating them.

Wolf Bennie Ba was ready to let Wolfhound Winnie know how he felt about her. Not realizing that all of K-9 Town already knew. He wanted to do something special which is why they came to me. The only rule was, "None of that sissy stuff Ma."

I had to work fast because Bennie Ba couldn't stay still for too long at a time. He belonged out in the wilds. I'm proud of what I came up with and to make a long story short, this is how Wolf Bennie Ba greeted Wolfhound Winnie on K-9 Town, USA's Valentine's Day.  

The rest is another story. But now, I'd like to refresh your memories as to how Wolf Bennie Ba became a member of the Pack as told in chapter 4 of Omar Blue and K-9 Town, USA.....


Was a bright but chilly morning
in K-9 Town, USA
the male Elders were out searching
for the peeping wolf Bennie Ba.

The puppies were left happy
with lots of time for play
but who could have guessed
that darned wolf Bennie
would circle back that day.

But back now to the Elders
and their leader Omar Blue
the biggest, mightiest doberman
any canine ever knew.

He’d stopped
and some would later say
a fierce look had taken hold
the look of the mighty warrior
big, bad, brave and bold.

They knew that there was something
but none of them could see
that wolf Bennie Ba
was in their town
behind The Big Oak Tree.

Then Omar Blue was running
with his cool magnificent stride
they couldn’t keep up
no matter what
but dog-gone-it they sure tried.

A real tough pack of dogs they were
from the shepherd to the hound
and with their leader
ahead of the pack
Bennie Ba would sure be found!

Big Omar Blue outpaced them
got home to the puppies real quick
he found Bennie Ba
just a minute away
but the huge white wolf
was quite sick.

When the pack arrived
wolf Bennie Ba cried
“I won’t do it again!

Just wanted to be
with you and the pups
cause I’m lonely
I ain’t got no kin”.

The Elders faced each other
not knowing what to say
then Omar Blue
 said loud and clear
“He needs us
let him stay.”

As soon as the female Elders heard those words, they started their special care, with Wolfhound Winnie as lead caregiver. Omar says it was love at first site. He also says he thinks Bennie knew how everything would turn out all along. He had spent a lot of time watching Omar and his Pack at K-9 Town.

Here's wishing everyone,

I was sitting around minding my own business when Omar Blue walked up. I tried to pretend I didn't notice him but it didn't work. I had a feeling he was up to something and I was determined I wasn't getting involved, well kind of. It didn't work. He sat right in front of me and started right away.

I know you see me Ma
 "Ma we have to go," I understood. It seemed Corgi detectives Zeph and Sapphie had another community problem. Their best neighbor's cat was missing. Cat!! Yes I said Cat. A friend of the Corgis. They were afraid it would fall into the hands of an abuser. That's all Omar had to hear. You know how he is about abusers.

Soooo, we got our plan together and off we went.

No time for pictures
I was to get my friends, the corgis' people parents, to watch Omar for me while I went shopping. That worked out fine. They wanted the Corgis to meet Omar anyway. (If they only knew.) You should have seen those Corgis pretending they didn't know Omar. So cute.

I can't tell any more of this "true tale" because its being told by Val Muller over at her Corgi Capers site. Omar Blue is over there too. He's being featured for the wonderful job he did. Go over there and see him posing. Handsome thing. I'm so proud of him. He never tells me everything anyway. He found that cat and more. He could be a detective too if he wanted to instead of a pack leader but we know better than that.

When we returned, Omar couldn't wait to go tell his buddies at K-9 Town, USA. Remember King Cat Sateer (What a kool cat leader! See previous post if you missed him.) Somehow he found out about Omar's "rescue." He came to K-9 Town and brought several felines with him. They thanked Omar Blue and his Pack. Knowing if Omar cared enough to do this, so would his Pack. That's how it works in K-9 Town. They were showing so much love that the pack couldn't wait for them to leave. Omar says to be truthful, they really aren't that bad, but they get into everything.

Anyway, all's well that ends well and things are back to "normal" here. If you'd like to know exactly how Omar, Zeph and Sapphie handled rescuing Shady the cat, the whole story is being told by author Val Muller at

A lot of excitement over there. Val is introducing her new book, "Deceit on Dorset Drive. Those Corgi Caper Detectives stay busy. I think she's even doing a free giveaway. I'm on my way....

Big Boy and Spot
Okay little fella, time to go now.
