The Puppies Clubhouse

We were having a little quiet time but I could see that Omar was pondering. He finally let me know what was on his mind.

“Ma we’re having a Halloween Party at K9 Town. Can some of my friends meet here first, like they always do?”

“Like they always do,” I said to myself. “We’ll discuss that later.”

The puppies (my weakness) are excited, he said.  They say they are going to get rid of all the scary things in K9 Town on Halloween night. You should hear their “secret” plans. Hilarious.

I finally consented. He knew I wanted to be in on the fun. We relaxed and Omar continued talking about the puppies. A pleasant surprise, he told me something that happened while the pack was traveling though the mountains to see his canine kin…….."Led By An Eagle," Chapter 9.

What were those puppies up to
They were being mighty quiet now

Keeping something in full view.

“It’s beautiful,” said cocker puppy Joe
And the other puppies agreed
“It will make a wonderful clubhouse
It’s exactly what we need.”
Cooley Junior the komondor spoke up next
“We’re here for a whole day

We’ll fix our clubhouse up nice

And have a good place to play.

 We’ll get furs from my pa pa
To make our beds tonight

The Elders will let us stay here

As long as we’re in sight.”


“That’s right” said Maggie the beagle puppy
“We’ll be all on our own

We’re gonna have lots of fun tonight

If they let us stay alone.”

Was poodle puppy Dumplin’s turn to speak
“Let’s gather what we need.”

They all ran out together

Each trying to take the lead.

Omar Blue had heard all this
We know not to ask just how

He loved overseeing the puppies though
Especially times like now.

They were always planning something new
Always busy having fun

That’s just the way he wanted it
Their lives had just begun.

Soon enough through teaching
They’d have to face this land

Strong, proud, and fearless

With the rest of the pack they’d stand.

The puppies had gathered their odds and ends
To make their clubhouse great

The Elders weren’t allowed in there

At the door they’d have to wait.

 As day went on, dusk came along
They went and joined the pack

They ate then told the Elders

“We’re leaving but we’ll be back.”

They noticed not an Elder budged
Acted like they didn’t care

Couldn’t they see they were leaving

For their clubhouse waaaay over there.

The puppies walked off slowly
It was getting pretty dark

They could hardly see their clubhouse now

Should have left some kind of mark.

 They made it to the front door
But didn’t rush to go in

By now they were pretty tired

Wanting home and their “real” den.

The clubhouse was looking different now
Kind of spooky one might say

How could it look like this now
It was beautiful all day!

 They looked around at each other
What were they going to do
They didn’t want to go in there
Then they heard Omar Blue.
This is the place you talked about
We weren’t to come in here
That’s right this is your clubhouse
I’ll go to sleep elsewhere”.
“No, no leader Omar!!!!
We’re not gonna make a fuss
You’re tired and you need your rest
So come lay down with us.”
Omar smiling to himself
Said “How very nice of you
If it weren’t for your kindness
I don’t know what I’d do.”
 The puppies smiled at their leader
Then they jumped for joy
No longer feeling tired
What a leader, boy oh boy!
 Omar sat and watched them
Until their strength was gone
One by one they came to him
For an empty spot to lie on.
 He had told the other Elders
About his evening plans
So they could get in on it too
A pack of puppy fans.
 In the morning when the pups woke up
Omar Blue had already gone
Their clubhouse was looking pretty again
What do you think went wrong?
