Omar Blue, Babee Blue and the Naughty Puppies

I'm still waiting for my baby brother, Babee Blue. Ma keeps saying he'll be home soon. Does anyone know when "soon" is?
Look at him. Five weeks old, weighing in at 8 lbs., 14 oz. He's growing pretty fast. "Soon" can't be much longer.

Me and Ma have been doing a lot of talking about puppies lately. Of course, that brings to mind the K-9 Town puppies. Babee Blue will have so much fun with them. He has so much to learn.
When we formed started K-9 Town, the puppies were stubborn and didn't want to learn anything. Did we tell you about that?
Bet Ma wouldn't mind telling you.

No Omar, I wouldn't mind at all. Here goes....

Was a balmy dark September day, in K-9 Town, USA.
The Elders were hunting and harvesting food, while the puppies, of course, were at play.
Now what’s wrong with this picture? I said “September day.”
The puppies should be in training, but the teacher has gone away.

Boy, how the little tikes loved it, but the Elders could certainly see,
they were getting into more mischief, and wilder than they should be.

We have to find a new teacher, the last one won’t be back.
He left to help some kin folk, he had to leave the pack.

Omar Blue was thoughtful, remembering back a ways,
when Rottweiler Brady had told him, about his teaching days.

So he went to talk to Brady, who’d just married Sophie Jean.
He asked if he would help out, he and his poodle queen.

Brady was excited, because teaching was his second love.
He’d do the job, with Sophie’s help, and some from the Gods above.

Omar Blue called a meeting, everything was gonna be great.
Professor Brady and Sophie Jean, would keep those puppies straight.

Meanwhile at the edge of town, under The Big Oak Tree.
The puppies sat and talked about, how great it was to be free!

The Chihuahua triplet leaders, were never seen apart.
As soon as one would say a word, the other two would start.

They became the yipping leaders, since it was always three to one.
The others took to listening, cause nothing else could be done.

“Let’s get the other puppies,” said leaders Lee, Lii and Luu.
“Make them come quick as they can, we’ve got some news for you.”

When the other pups got to the tree, they told what they had heard.
Rottie Brady is gonna be the new teacher, now isn’t that absurd?

We’ll have a ball in training this fall, not gonna listen “neither!”
We’ll run and skip and play in class, he won’t do nothing “either!”


When the first day came for training, each puppy came in mad.
He asked them why? They didn't lie, "Cause being here makes us

Then Lee, Lii and Luu got busy, even had the nerve to stand.
Said, “We pups have had a meeting, we don’t need no teacher’s hand.”

Professor Brady gave a look they’d never seen before.
He said, “You three you come with me," as he headed for the door.

The three got up but slowly, showing fear the others could see.
As they watched, each puppy said under their breath, "It's better them than me."

Brady spoke to them real softly, “I know the leaders, you three.
But, don’t you come into my class, and think you’ll interrupt me.

We were put here for a reason, me and Ms. Sophie Jean.
Gonna teach you either way we can. Can be nice, or we can be mean.

Now Lee, Lii and Luu git in there, and show what smart leaders do.
Listen to us teachers, and we'll be good to you.”

Lee, Lii and Luu went back to class. Each quickly took their seat.
Sat up so nice and straight this time, couldn’t even see their feet.

“What happened, yipped Cocker puppy Joe. “What did he do out there?”
 “He gave a speech, about how they’d teach, said we’d better all beware.
He also made us leaders, so listen to what we say.
You don’t wanna go outside with him, cause Professor Brady don’t play!”
