OMAR BLUE AND FREEDOM FOR ALL



We were snacking after dinner


My Omar Blue and me


When we heard a familiar bark


We knew who it would be.





Was that beautiful shepherd Freedom


I hadn’t seen him for a while


Look how erect he’s standing


I really like his style.




Instead of Freedom coming in


Omar went out to see


The reason for this was simple enough


They didn’t want to share with me.





I was bored and wanted something to do


And decided then and there


Those two may think they’re leaving me


But I’ll follow them anywhere.





Omar came back in the house


Freedom stayed outside


He knew I had some questions


And I could tell if he lied.





They left, I followed


though I couldn’t keep up


It still turned out alright


I made it to their destination


Then hid back out of sight.





I realized I was near K-9 Town


But I could feel much danger here


Omar and Freedom were different now


I didn’t know this pair.





They were talking to the tree monsters


I could see they were getting mad


Omar’s eyes were like bright lights


Freedom looked just as bad.


They ran off into the dark woods


Leaving the tree monsters behind


Obviously on a mission


What were they looking to find?





I didn’t wait around to see


I wanted to get home fast


It wouldn’t be the first time


Didn’t want it to be my last.





I waited up for Omar


What a horrible scary night


All I could do was picture


Him and Freedom in a terrible fight.





Omar got home the next morning


With Freedom at his side


They were my beautiful dogs again


Didn’t tell them I had spied.





He asked me to come outside with them


I followed right away


The sight I saw was so wonderful


I think about it every day.


Omar can we keep them!

I know just what to do

No ma they can’t stay here

It would only make trouble for you.



We did some things last night you see

Can’t tell you any more

Good thing the tree monsters were looking on

And told us what they saw.



The puppies are going to K-9 Town

To grow up with my Pack

I knew you’d want to see them

Maybe one day they’ll come back.



As Omar and Freedom led them off

I knew this was the best thing

The puppies would grow up big and strong

With all the happiness love can bring.

-------------------------------------



Eventually, Omar told me how the tree monsters helped him and Freedom rescue the puppies.  We may be enemies he said, but we don’t do much to really hurt each other.

I said to myself, what a place to live and learn, K-9 Town, USA.

Freedom was first introduced in our post of May 26, 2011, My Heros. Feel free to refresh your memories.


Oh!  And this is the only time I'm fessing up. The cute little dobies actually come from Iron Dog Kennels in Swansea, SC where Omar Blue was born and lived  until the ripe old age of 8 weeks old.
