I am a writer of "true tales" that I love sharing with animal lovers. My inspiration is my dog, Omar Blue who was honored to be "Dog of the Day" a few days ago.
Omar Blue and his pack have started a town they call K9 Town, USA.
As the pack overcomes numerous obstacles and threats, you'll be reminded of the importance of family (whether it be by blood or affiliation).
There is a mystique about Omar Blue that even his pack is yet to understand. He protects and leads through care and compassion, welcoming new dogs into the ever growing family and protecting them from lurking dangers.
Omar actually lives two lives. He's at home with dad and me, part of the time. Other times he goes off to be with his fierce but loving pack of canine followers. They share many adventures and vow to help abused and mistreated canines wherever they find them.
Here is an example of what my dog stands for:
While sitting one night not long ago, trying to think of something different to write about, Omar Blue came in from a visit to K9 Town.
He had a newspaper in his mouth and a serious expression. I asked where it came from but instead of answering, he asked, in that way we have of communicating, "Would you read this to me please Ma?"
Why, I don't know, but I panicked wondering what he and his pack had gotten themselves into.
He pointed to the article but I was busy trying to see the name of the newspaper and where it originated. No name, nor place was given.
Omar set down in front of me, waiting for me to begin, so I did. As I read a far away look came into his eyes, as though he were in a trance, reliving the moments.
ABUSE ON THE WATERFRONT
by Sagamore Duley
Doberman Omar Blue and his canine followers yesterday invaded the waterfront compound of Captain Fenimus Rong after a canine tip about animal cruelty.
The tip leading to the rescue was intended to trap and put an end to Omar Blue and his band of caring canines. Fortunately, Captain Rong was outwitted and his assemblage of battered animals were rescued. Before leaving, the ex-captives left their mark to make sure it would be a long time if ever, before Fenimus Rong was able to repeat his wicked activities.
To his credit Captain Rongís dog, the messenger, knew of Omar Blue and his pack. The Cocker Spaniel had been waiting for a chance to join them in their quest to help the unfortunate and to put a stop to Captain Rong.
The brave Cockerís good deed earned him a place in the pack forever, along with those rescued.
Led by leader Omar Blue the mistreated animals and their new friends were off to K9 Town, USA, their new home. There they will give and receive love, respect and kindness and become proud members of the ever growing family of canines."

When I finished reading the front page article, "I" was in a trance, I didn't faint this time but I admit I felt a bit woozy. OMG! I was so proud. Omar snapped out of it as soon as I finished reading. He was very excited. I knew he'd remember every word.
After a wet "I love you" lick to my face, he was off like lightening to repeat the words to those who had joined him in this daring deed.
Still in awe, I decided I'd share this with you all. After all I was looking for something different to write about. Omar still hasn't told me where this waterfront town is and I'm guessing he never will.
When he returned he told me how happy the rescued newcomers were to hear the story and how happy they were to be at K9 Town, USA where they could feel the love and friendship and enjoy their new lives.
