The K9 Town Puppies First Rescue


I had been thinking about Omar Blue and his Pack at K-9 Town, USA, and the latest news I’ve been able to get out of Omar.  He’s tight lipped, but he loves telling me about the K-9 Town puppies.

You may remember potbelly pigs Sookie and Mookie from my earlier “true tales.”  Well, they’ve had a baby boy and as with the puppies, he has a mind of his own.

Obviously, the following happened shortly after Omar Blue and his Pack rescued a few new members that had been mistreated and abused.

It scares me to think of the danger my pack leading Doberman puts himself into, but I can't think of a better way for him and his friends to help other canines. They're such a brave, compassionate bunch.

In our way of communicating, Omar told me this story about the beloved puppies. I admit, I laughed out loud, more than once, though it does have serious overtones.  Enjoy.....

They were resting under The Big Oak Tree
After running wild most of the day

Trying to understand what “rescue” meant

Before going back to play.

They knew their new friends had been “rescued”
From a place that treated them mean

When the Elders came back they were saying

“We put on one heck of a scene!"

As they sat they started to wonder

Why didn’t they teach us this too

They couldn’t think of a reason

So decided they’d rescue something too.

Almost like magic, what would appear

Baby Dukie the potbelly pig

Mad at his parents Sookie and Mookie

For not letting him eat that fig.

Don’t worry said puppy leaders Le, Li and Lu

We know what we have to do

Sookie and Mookie shouldn’t be mean

We’re gonna rescue you.

You can live with us

We never fuss

We eat and play all day

If Sookie and Mookie come for you

We’ll just chase them away.

Dukie thought for a moment

All this sounded good

Cause Mookie and Sookie

Didn’t treat him like they should.

He’d stay with the puppies

At least for a while

Until they missed him

That would change their style.

But at the end of the day tired and beat

Reality finally struck

They had to hide their new family member

But knew they would have no such luck.

Then little black Speedy

The first to speak up

" Dukie can sleep with us

Ma and pa will be out late

There will be no one there to fuss."

Meanwhile as the Elders looked on

At the puppies big rescue

Sookie and Mookie, potbelly pigs

Were watching the little ones too.

It was getting late

Time for Dukie to leave

Though they were so cute while asleep.

They picked Dukie up

Ever so gently

He cuddled not making a peep.

Goodbye Omar Blue and our K-9 Town friends

Thanks for keeping our Dukie with you

It’s all been so funny

To bad they must learn

There’s a lot more to a rescue.
