Omar Blue Receives Coveted Doggie Do Award

I was leaving work early. I guess you can see I was very happy. Omar and his Pack were receiving an award, for the big Waterfront doggie rescue from that dirty animal abuser Fenimus Rong.

Remember the big headline news article by Sagamaore Duley I shared with you. All of those dogs are still at K9 Town, living happily ever after. I still have the article,

Omar was so excited. I thought I had talked him into dressing up for the event, but he was only compromising before letting me know that lift-off for him "and his friends" was from our house, again.

I really didn't mind. Look how handsome he is.

I noticed Omar kept looking out the window. That usually means something I'm not expecting, so I started looking too. Then I saw her coming.
It was Bee Bee the Afghan Hound, from K9 Town. This was the first time I was able to get a good look at her. She was beautiful!
Omar said she wanted to go with them to get the awards and she also wanted to meet me. She was very shy so I went up the hill to her and we walked down together to the others that had arrived by then.
I was very curious at the way Omar and Bee Bee kept glancing at each other but I didn't say anything because they would be leaving soon and I wanted all the details.
As we got closer to the house there were dogs all over and ready to go. They all seemed excited.
Usually there would be some of my neighbors dogs included, but not this time. These were all members of Omar's pack, wondering what this "awards thing" was.
I got my doggie brushes out and me and Bee Bee made sure they were all looking good, then off they went. Leaving me behind, to my dismay.
When Omar got home he didn't come right in. He says he was waiting for me to come to the window but I think he was showing off.  Would you look at this!
Omar said the Mayor of Waterfront Town gave them all one of these neck things and had lots of food for them to eat. They had fun but didn't want to stay long. He brought me the Certificate they were given. He said his pack wanted me to have it.
I'm proud to hang it on my wall.
I don't think Omar Blue or the pack like this type of fuss. As a matter of fact, this one reminder of what they stand for is enough for me too.

Whadda Day! Whadda Day!

Are they back yet? Are they back yet? Are the.........

Omar understands that he's still a little too energy packed to go on my readings but he doesn't mind, as long as we take the K9 Town Peepers along.

He says when they tell the pack about what happened it's just like being there listening to the story. They love hearing about themselves in my books.

Today I read from, "Led By An Eagle" at the beautiful Elmcroft Senior Living Community. Daughter Joy and I had a wonderful time.

Quality living for our seniors. I loved it.

A mid size audience today. Not one of our largest but I did have to use the microphone to make sure those in the back could here us.
I tell you, our seniors are very, very appreciative but don't think they won't let you know if they're unhappy with you.
Joy and I know the signs. You can't read their expressions so you listen for little sounds. An "oh my gosh" here, an "oh no" or "good for him" there. Signs of enjoyment. We can almost hear a pin drop. Enjoyment!
There was something very special about today. It was so "cozy." As I sat and read on this beautiful summer day, I thought the only things missing were the snowy night and the fireplace. I think the smell of the cookies being baked for us all, had something to do with that, but I liked the feeling anyway.
Referring to their personal posters featuring the characters
After the reading we had our raffle/books giveaway. I hope it's the excitement of winning a book and not just the raffle itself, because it's a feature we have lots of fun with. 
I guess you can tell, it was a lovely day.
When I got home Omar was waiting. After hearing that the Peepers wouldn't start without him but they went straight to K9 Town, he was off like a shot.
Be back later, Ma!
 Next Month, we will be at the Veteran's Hospital here in Richmond. We plan on making this a special treat for our vets. One thing we know, they deserve it.

Many thanks to Elmcroft Senior Living Community for having us today.

Omar Blue - What Is This World I've Made For You?

I couldn't, even with my wild imagination, know what I was conjuring when I started writing about my Omar Blue and K9 Town, USA. A new world started to evolve around him and the evolution is still taking place.

When I am able to get to K9 Town (when my Mojo works,) the things I see you wouldn't believe, without the pictures I bring back to you. I know that.

I've been thinking back to when Omar took his pack to visit his canine family at Iron Dog Land.

Had I known then that a spectacular force would be leading them on their journey, I would not have worried for a minute. Even with those evil mountain lions on their trail.

How could I know that Omar Blue had Eagle Cloud leading the way.

I only knew they were traveling through dangerous mountains.

It is said that before this, Eagle Cloud hadn't appeared in 100 years. One thing for sure, even the meanest animals stayed out of Eagle Cloud's path.

I've saved this picture for you.
"Is this my imagination?"
One thing for sure, this occurrence cemented my thoughts that my Omar Blue is not only extraordinary to me, but also to powers we have yet to see.
Stayed tuned.....
