About mid morning the 5th day I was passing a window and saw him standing outside. He was looking out at a few of his friends who had obviously walked him home.
|Straight home now!|
|Wait til I tell you this, ma.|
We were sitting talking
My pack and me
Almost like I’m doing with you
We had just come back from a rescue
Saved some dogs and puppies too.
They were over with the female Elders
Getting the best of care
When one came over to have his say
“There’s more dogs kept down there.”
The place we’d left held no surprise
It was down on the Waterfront
The evil there was legendary
So we had to continue the hunt.
All of these dogs were mistreated
Sometimes even made to fight
The abusers didn’t know about me and my Pack
But they sure met us that night.
It was Cocker Spandy who brought the news
Said he knew all about this place
He’d been held there for a very long time
Knew every inch of the space.
I didn’t let on but something sounded wrong
Cocker Spandy was in disguise.
One thing the whole Pack noticed too
He never looked me in the eyes.
The newcomers were taken to K-9 Town
To be a part of the family
Where all are treated with the same respect
And love runs rampantly.
For the next few days all went well
As we planned our next attack
Keeping an eye on Cocker Spandy
To make sure he didn’t go back.
One night while up late talking
I warned all to be aware
For the first time ever in K-9 Town
A spy was lurking there.
Spandy didn’t know us very well
He thought he’d seen it all
Had no idea what we could do
That bad place was gonna fall.
They were planning to lay a trap for us
I found this out that day
Heard the leader talking about his dog
Spandy, but that’s okay.
It didn’t matter they knew we were coming
There was nothing they could do
But we changed our strategy just a bit
This time they were gonna be through.
When the big night came
Cocker Spandy acted lame
“An old injury, I can’t walk.”
I just looked in his eyes
Didn’t say a word
But he knew he’d better not talk.
“We’ve been on to you from the very start
Your story never rang true
Then after talking to the others
We decided what we’d do.”
“Wait Omar Blue
Let me explain
The things you say are true
But I didn’t know what I know now
About K-9 Town and you.
I’d be happy to stand right by your side
And back your Pack tonight
I was gonna wait until you all came back
I intended to make it right.
What I did, was out of fear
Afraid to break away
My loyalty is now with you
I’m asking, can I stay.”
As I looked back at my mighty Pack
Most gave a little nod
They understood how Spandy felt
They too once had it hard.
“You know now what we’re all about
We never desert our kind
K-9 Town is a haven
For all we help or find.
You can stay here if you want to
But remember we’re trouble free
If you do anything to change that
You’ll answer directly to me.”
We changed the place that night
They knew that we were coming
But still didn’t get to fight.
About Omar Blue and his Pack
No more mistreatment of animals there
For fear that we’ll come back.
As for Cocker Spandy
He’s happy now
At K9 Town, USA
Enjoying life as one of the Pack
