Omar Blue - Ode to my friends the Labradors


Today I’m going to talk about Labradors, because my best friend, Major Diggs, was a Lab.

Well, mostly.


He passed away last year and everyone still misses him, very much.

Actually, he’s now living forever at K9 Town, doing what he does best, being second in charge. How this happens is another "true tale" but I’ll tell you this, there are many at K9 Town that decided not to go further on, to Rainbow Bridge. They have all the love and respect we can give and they love being a part of our adventures. 

Very happy, as you can see and always up to something.

They're waiting for me. I'll be joining the fun shortly.

To continue…. I’ve made new friends but some of them are very unfortunate. They don’t have homes and people to love and care for them. These are the ones I want to tell you about.  

In many ways they’re all the same. They are outgoing and friendly, even tempered, gentle, agile, kind and smart.  Those are all traits of the Labrador, and things that make them wonderful companions and family pets. Sounds like the Doberman, I might add, if I were talking about us.

Here are a few of my friends but there are many more, younger and older, needing homes and people to love.
While waiting to be adopted, they are staying at the Lab Rescue LRCP and in foster homes, in Virginia.
The smiling faces below belong to just a few of the kind, caring volunteers who work hard at the Rescue, and beyond, to find the perfect homes for my friends.

If you have room in your heart, and in your life, think about giving a dog a home. You won’t regret it.

Contact the Lab Rescue LRCP at or coordinator Angie Turner by phone, 301-299-6756.
Gotta go now. Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.

Love youuuu!

Omar Blue - Birthday Boy

New Year's Day was also my 7th Birthday. I had a good time. Ma made me meatloaf, my favorite food.
I also spent some time with my pack at K9 Town. We had a ball. They love celebrating, especially since we started celebrating human holidays. The older ones keep busy planning and the puppies always have something to look forward to.
I gathered some of my marrow bones for the puppy games. They love them. 
I didn't stay as long as usual this time. Me and Ma had a pretty good year but we still miss Papa, who passed away last year. I wanted to be with her.
We'll be okay. We keep busy.
Ma and sister Joy are working very hard to get our company, up and running. They had a big setback when they found glitches in the site. They took it down completely because they say it has to be 100% functional, not 95%, not 90%.
They are now working with developers who can do what's needed and they are happy because it's going to be better than they originally planned.
We want to thank all of you who have inquired about BiggSiss and indicated your support.
The need for BiggSiss is everlasting and we are close to making it happen.  Women need the extra protection of the online confidant and law enforcement needs an information repository to assist them in crisis situations.
In the meantime, Ma said I could invite two of my friends to dinner for my birthday. Ronnie and Rudi came prepared. I had told all my friends that we have to be ready to protect women against violence and that's what they came to do, after dinner of course.
As it happened, they ate so much that all they were able to do afterwards was lay around until they were ready to go home to rest some more. Their hearts were in the right place but their stomachs may have slowed them down. Lol.
Ma thought they were very funny. So did I.
My friends were traveling through Facebook so I knew they would be safe but I decided to go along too, for the exercise, since I had ate too much also. 
As we strode along we talked about how we were going to help BiggSiss. We're going to keep spreading the word to our friends to keep looking out for our female humans and be ready to protect them from those who mean them harm.
When I got back home, Ma was laid out looking at TV. I think she had eaten too much too.  We decided to call it a night.
It was another fantastic birthday and a great way to bring in the New Year. I dreamed I was running with my pack at my wonderful second home, K9 Town. But I was glad to be at my first home with Ma.
