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,



  1. This is clever and fun! I love all canine creatures.

  2. Thanks. So glad you like it. I'm sure you can tell I have a lot of fun doing it.

  3. Bennie looks exactly like our white German shepherd Vega we adopted from the Humane Society 11 years ago. He had been so badly abused that he wouldn't walk--he crawled and "slunk" with his tail between his legs. Now he's the best dog ever and is being such a wonderful "dad" to our new puppy. I love Omar's pack and, of course, I love Omar most of all!

  4. Hi Sandy. Omar and his pack love you too. You practice and write about what they preach. A little love goes a long way. A lot of love goes even further. Not only for animals, but children too.

    Hope you'll come back soon.
