The K-9 Town Peepers Visit FETCH a Cure

I've told you about the newest members of K-9 Town, USA.  Well, Omar and the K-9 Town Peepers, Peepa, Peepbee and Peepcie came in to me.

They had just come from observing an organization called FETCH a Cure and were on their way to K-9 Town, USA to share what they’d learned. The pack was waiting excitedly. I’ve been a member of FETCH a Cure for a while now and admit I’d mentioned it to them once or twice.

We’re a group of animal lovers determined to make the world a better place for our furry friends. Mistreatment and sickness are high priorities and our focus is geared towards building awareness, educating pet-parents about Cancer prevention and support treatment through our Companions in Crisis program.

FETCH a Cure can attest to giving thousands of hours over the years to coordinate and participate in fundraising and other events geared towards keeping our companions safe, healthy and happy.

Daughter Joy, dad and I have had two of our beloved pets struck down by this horrible debilitating disease some refer to as “The Big C.” Watching what they went through was as heartbreaking as watching a family member or friend, especially since we considered them to be both.

Omar says I’m getting mushy now and I don’t want to make him and the Peepers sad. Can’t have them taking sadness back to K-9 Town, USA so I’m going to give you all the link for FETCH a Cure so you can see for yourselves the wonderful job being done.
Join us!

I finished just in time. You all know Penny the K-9 Town messenger. They sent her to get Omar and the Peepers. Off they all went. Penny never stays long. She takes her job very seriously. I must ask Omar Blue if she's found out yet that her bodyguard Ridgebacks Koffee and Tee are never far behind her.
Omar!!! We're ready.

Omar Blue and the K-9 Town Peepers

It seemed extra dark that rainy evening
I was sitting with Omar Blue
Cozy in front of the fireplace
Watching TV too.

Then Omar started to tell me
In that way I understand
About three new members of his pack
That arrived from a far off land.

“We’ve named them the K-9 Town Peepers
They’re right outside the door
I knew you’d want to meet them
And I admit there’s a little more.”

I didn’t let him finish
Couldn’t wait to see
I love when members of Omar’s pack
Come to visit me.

But these three were very different
Peepa’, Peepbee and Peepcie
I turned to look at Omar
And found him staring at me.

We led them to the living room
Where they communicated to me
Their gift of sharing with the pack
All that they may see.

Omar asked if they could accompany
Daughter Joy and Me
When we’re out talking about K-9 Town
Because the pack would like to see.

They know so much about the bad things
That mean humans like to do
Can we show them some of the good things
Let them know there are more like you.

I didn’t let on how glad I’d be
To have the K-9 Town Peepers around
I could hardly believe this was happening
I agreed without making a sound.

They left that night the way they came
As soon as I shut the door
I put more logs on the fire
No need to say anything more.

Those K-9 Town Peepers are so cute. Daughter Joy and I can’t wait to show them off at our upcoming events. They’ll be with us when we’re reading Omar Blue and K-9 Town, USA and putting on our special presentation at hospitals, libraries, schools, community centers and when we’re reading to our senior citizen friends. They will also be with us at upcoming fundraisers and conventions.  Now you know why there was nothing to talk about after the K-9 Town Peepers left Omar Blue and me. My wheels were already spinning. I have a feeling his were too.  Stay tuned….
