It's a special day. I'm having some friends over. We're telling Lily, you know her as "Batdog," how proud we are of her. Some of my friends have never met her but have heard about her.
Batdog saved her family and other people in their apartment building in New York City, from a big fire. She's always doing things like that.
She just arrived and took her favorite space, not knowing we're here to honor her.
I finally got the others to find a spot and settle down after each one showed their love.
Some of our friends were coming all the way from Facebook and hadn't arrived. Others live closer.
This is little Ms. Pleasant. She found a pillow near Batdog and couldn't stop looking at her after receiving a big hug. Is she cute, or what?
Here are my friends Kody and Charlie. They love playing tricks. I'd better get them back in here. They're up to something.
Look at Lola Lloyd. She was very happy because Batdog remembered her from an event they had both attended.
A couple of my friends still hadn't made it.
There's JJ. I think he forgot which house. "Down here JJ. Here we are!" Doesn't he look majestic up there like that.
I'm expecting one more. My friend Kapone.
Here he comes. I knew the snow wouldn't keep him away.
"Come on in and find a spot, we're all over the place."
He found a warm spot over in the corner. He's always so serious, the handsome devil, but he has a good time.
Now, for the presentation and who better to do this than that gentlemen, Spartacus Maximus, my long time friend.
When he finished speaking for all of us, Lily was near tears but her smile told it all. We knew if she had to do it again, she would, without second thought. She loves her people family very much.
No doubt Batdog had forgotten the pact me and my pack at K-9 Town had made, that we'd always be there for her.
She couldn't have failed that night. We had sent the Canine God of Fire to watch over her.
We don't call on her often but it didn't take much to get her out for Lily.
It was starting to get late. Ma would be home soon.
After we had our snacks, everyone bid Batdog farewell. My pack was waiting for her at K-9 Town. Not to celebrate, but to make her take a long needed rest. The females would see to that. They love her and know how hard it is patrolling New York and Gotham Cities.
Wolf Bennie Ba had been waiting outside. He and I would make sure she arrived safely. He prefers not to come in, if he can help it and he loves the snow.
He was still holding a rose for Lily. No doubt the females had threatened him to make sure she got it, ha, ha.
On a serious note. I want to thank all of the kind friends who again let me borrow their furry companions for my "true tales."
Batdog is truly a heroine and she did everything we told you about above.
Please take a moment to see her beautiful family and hear the real story about that horrendous night at http://www.styrk.com/posts/meet-the-hero-canine-batdog.
Come back soon. Omar is always up to something.

Hi there. Me and Ma have been on vacation. I'm pretty tired right now.
She should be home any minute.
We didn't go together. I'm afraid of planes so Ma went with Sister Joy and some of the family to a place called St. Thomas. She'll say she had a ball but I know she spent most of her time thinking about me.
We agreed that I was big enough to be okay until my canine Ma and Pa, Saifon and Nitro came to get me. I was going back to my first home at Iron Dog Land to visit with them.
They came as soon as Ma left and so did my sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts and uncles. I'm always glad to see them all.
I had been packing my suitcase when they got to the door. Needless to say my travel bone snacks didn't make it.
Nitro, Saifon and my brother Thor stayed with me, while the others went to visit my pack at K-9 Town. Brother Thor couldn't stop talking, telling me everything that happened since my last visit to Iron Dog Land.
He let a few things slip and got himself into trouble. He stays in trouble anyway. Always up to something, Lol.
I was having such a good time, but poor Ma. She has to learn how to stop missing me so much. Sister Joy will tell me how sad she was. She probably didn't even get out of bed.
I decided I wanted to stay home just in case Ma came home early. I was having fun, anyway. I got to show off for my canine family, showing Thor that I could still run faster than him. I took advantage because he was still tired from the run from Iron Dog Land.
Ma just happened to cross my mind again. I wondered if she took her hat for this cold weather. She'll come home with a cold for sure.
Nitro, Saifon and Thor left just before Ma got home. They didn't want to hear her fuss about the mess we made. She won't care, she'll be so glad to see me.
I was waiting at the door when she got here.
Just like I said, she never mentioned anything but how much she missed me. All hugs and kisses.
The next time we go on vacation I think we'd better go together so she can have fun and not think so much about me.
