Omar Blue, Facebook and the Caped Crusaders

It’s no secret that Omar Blue has been doing a lot of traveling since he got his own Facebook page for Christmas. I can hardly keep up with him. He’s made many friends in different countries.

After the celebration and meeting with the Show Dogs he became very thoughtful. I knew something was coming but was in no rush to find out what it was. I’m sure you understand, from my past experiences with Omar and his pack. But sure enough, it came!
Omar told me, in that way we have of communicating, that he had met other dogs in other countries that protect and care for abused and lonely canines just like him and his K9 Town pack. Of course I thought he was kidding.  Then he said he had started going over to other Doberman sites talking and making friends when the secrets began flowing.
I told Omar this was impossible and I didn’t believe that there were others like them.
What did I say that for!  “Ma, can I prove it to you?” he asked. I knew I was in trouble then. I had fallen into his trap and as usual my curiosity was getting the best of me. “How can you prove it Mr. Omar Blue,” I asked.
Just then there were two low barks at the door as if they had been waiting for my exact words. We both went to the door and I opened it. Omar smiled and said hello. I fainted!
I’m embarrassed, so I won’t talk about that but when I woke up and looked around, I saw that it was true.
Batman and Robin dogs, and all the way from Spain. I still couldn’t believe my eyes. Omar said he was taking them to K9 Town where they were going to compare different ways of saving and protecting animals being abused, and places like K9 Town where they can live happily ever after.
There was another bark. I went to the window this time. It was Freedom, Omar’s beautiful German Shepherd pal. Freedom normally works alone although he’s a member of K9 Town, USA. He wanted to meet Batman and Robin so of course, what better meeting place. I waved him in. I like Freedom.
I had to put out of my mind the time I followed him and Omar when they saved some little puppies outside of K9 Town. What you see now is my memory of that night. The tree monsters helped. They saw the puppies being taken and told Omar and Freedom.

They told me I wasn’t safe. I was afraid. I ran home fast. See me running home fast?
What a night that was. Omar still doesn’t know I followed him. Or does he?
Omar, Freedom, Batman and Robin sat around for a little while. I loved it! I fed them and off they went to meet the pack. Omar won’t tell me their true identities. Only that they belong to two of our new Facebook friends. Maybe it’s better that way.
I wonder if their people parents know.
Everything is back to “normal.” Omar is back. He’s supposed to be resting but I hear him.  Can hardly keep his eyes open.

Maaaaaaaa. If I find the car keys can we take a ride to Spain to see my friends?

No Omar.  It’s not that easy and you need some rest.

And……..No Facebook Tonight!!

A big thank-you to Ms. Sara Magdalena Arduino for letting us bring Batman and Robin dogs to the U.S. Omar says they traded some very valuable information.

Omar Blue And The Show Dogs Celebration

I just don’t know what I’m going to do with my Omar Blue and his pack. They’re always up to something.  We all know the big Dog Show was in town last week.

Last year there was a celebration at K9 Town for them. Now, on the day of the show Omar told me they were having another celebration and meeting with the Show Dogs. He said the Show Dogs were excited and had a plan to get away. Show dog Casper the Kuvasz is getting mighty good at this. Him and his sister Leonberger Scarlett are the link and are very careful when getting the word out.

Here’s Casper, back at home watching the show, waiting for his cue. Omar says when this beautiful Setter lifts its tail to a certain height that means all is well and they will all be at the meeting place.

 Even Scarlett is helping this time though she’d rather be at K9 Town with her adopted Leonberger family.  She’s not very patient. Casper had better hurry or she’d disappear on him.

In addition to the Show Dogs, remember Theo that big handsome Great Dane. “I” had to do some fast talking because Tammy, his people Ma was leaving for a few days and had already packed him into the vehicle. Was he glad to see us. We took Theo and she took one of my Don’t Worry About A Thing Rum Cakes. One of the two Seers, Great Dane Granny, treats him like her other grands and he loves it. Omar took him straight to K9 Town.

When he got there he mentioned that his little friend Guinness hadn’t been feeling well lately but she wanted to come to the celebration.  When the female Elders heard that, there was no containing them.  They would go get her right then. Omar says they are better doctors than we have here anyway but he had to talk them into waiting until she got to K9 Town. He agreed that one of them could go with him.

The females decided to send Callie, because her and Guinness had become best friends at the Christmas Party and Guinness would love seeing her.

Here’s Guinness. People parents Pam and Mike were out shopping. They wouldn’t leave her for long. She was hoping her K9 Town friends were on their way.

Sure enough! She heard leader Omar telling her friend Callie to take the stairs and he’d wait outside. She was feeling better already.
Cute little Callie was on a mission. Had to get her friend back to the  females so they could fix her up. It won’t be a problem, they can fix anything. If its something they can’t fix the Seers will whip up a potion and Guinness will be as good as new.

If all of this wasn’t enough, Omar decided he wanted Toby, our new neighbor, Janet William’s 12 week old puppy to go too.  He said it would do him good to be with the K9 Town puppies and they were waiting for him.

If it had anything to do with the puppies, schoolmarm poodle Sophie Jean was going to handle it. Her brother, the protective Major Diggs came with her. They wouldn’t come in.

I was puppy sitting little Toby and could tell he knew they were coming. He pretended to play but never moved away from the door.  When I took him out to them I thought he said, “Bye, bye.”

Omar says everything went as scheduled with the Show Dogs. They were so happy to be where they could just be themselves. No combing, no fussing over them, no expectations. Just dogs doing what dogs do.

There was a meeting but Omar kept it short. The Show Dogs told their K9 Town friends of things they had witnessed in their travels. Things they were to report back to the pack, as they were doing. By the time Omar told me all this, the serious abuse and mistreatment they spoke of had been handled. I didn’t dare ask Omar what they had done because I had seen them in action and hoped never to see that again. I did notice he mentioned some names I hadn’t heard before as members of his pack.

I hear they really wooped it up that night, as they always do when the Show Dogs visit K9 Town. Omar Blue says it was like magic. I thought to myself, yes, I guess it was, just like magic.
