By O. Warfield
Omar Blue and his Pack travel into the mountains to meet his kin. Though reluctant to leave their beloved K-9 Town, USA, Omar's followers look forward to learning more about the mysterious leader they have grown to love and respect.
It's no secret they're being followed by Mountain Lion Booby and his Pride. Fearless to a fault, their attitude is, "Let them come. We'll handle them when they're ready.”
Omar would never say no, but knowing his unique talents, they heed his advice, "Don’t approach the mountain lions, keep them in your sights. We'll make sure they see us leaving. They’ll follow us for sure.”
The scouting four could see one of Omar's special plans in the works. They would do as they were told. What was their leader up to?
Meanwhile Booby is livid that Rottweiler Brady the professor had gotten the best of him in front of his followers.
As they travel through the mountains, the lions' numbers are growing. Picking up kin along the way. "Gonna rid this land of Omar Blue and his Pack once and for all," says Booby.
That's the plan.
They went to talk to Booby
We’ve waited long enough
Tonight we’re gonna show them
Omar’s Pack don’t look that tough.
Meanwhile down below the hill
Omar sat back with his Pack
They could feel the tension rising
The lions would soon attack.
They gathered in a circle
Each knowing what to do
A tougher Pack you’ll never see
Led by Omar Blue.
Bennie Ba the big white wolf
Walked over to Omar’s side
Then Diggs, Brady, Sammy, Kooley and Jim
Made the front line seem quite wide.
The others were behind them
Too numerous to call
Shepherds, Ridgebacks, Pit Bulls, Hounds
No way to name them all.
It was Paco the angry Chihuahua
Who yelled out from the back
“Let’s get those Mountain Lions
We’ll teach them to follow our Pack!”
Omar yelled “LET’S DO IT!”
With a deadly look on his face
“And don’t worry any one of you
Cause we all gonna leave this place.”
The females gathered the puppies
Who did what they were taught to do
Brady and Sophie had trained them well
To stay out of the enemies view.
The females would protect them
Their number one thing to do
But the Elder Seers spoke up then
“We’ll protect them
You go too.”
The females looked suspiciously
It was Great Dane Jennie who spoke
“Grandma what have you two done
You know this ain’t no joke.”
“Jennie don’t you sass me
And Rasta Mama here
We made a special potion
When we knew the battle was near.
Together we’re stronger than 20 of you
We’ll keep our pups real calm
If the Mountain Lions make it over here
We’ll inflict plenty harm.”
Rasta Mama spoke up then
“I’ll prove what we can do”
She ran and kicked a big fat tree
Her foot went right on through.
They ran to their male Elders
They left the Seers behind
Not worried about the puppies now
They knew they’d be just fine.
THE MOUNTAIN LIONS’ DOUBT
Meanwhile at the top of the hill
Booby’s Pride was looking down
They were thinking maybe this wouldn’t work
Their numbers weren’t that sound.
The dogs were outnumbered
Three to one
They knew but didn’t care
They completely turned the attack around
Only Omar’s Pack would dare.
The Mountain Lions headed down the hill
Gonna meet them face to face
Each had an eerie feeling
There was something about this place.
As they went further down the hill
Omar’s Pack was coming up
They were about to meet in the middle
When something else came…
Came a mighty roar
That nearly shook the ground
Every animal on the hill
Stopped and looked around.
To the lions amazement
What they saw
They might not live to tell
They’d never been this afraid before
They all could fight quite well.
Up the hill behind them
Circling for all to see
Were the biggest, meanest looking Dobermans
That there could ever be.
Each weighed at least 200 lbs.
All muscle easy to see
Focusing on the lions
Who had no place to flee.
They moved apart
To make a space
Why, only Omar knew
Cause through that space
Meanest of them all
Came Nitro and Sai Fon Blue.
They looked around
Didn’t need no crowns
They were the leaders
Of Iron Dog Land.
To face his Pack
Said “Get ready to meet my clan."
Nitro looked at the lions
Sai Fon at her baby boy
If she saw one nick
On Omar’s body
She’d command the clan to destroy.
Nitro spoke to the lions
“We know you were looking to fight
So we’re gonna make sure
You’ve had your chance
If we let you leave here tonight.”
Omar walked up to them both
“I brought my Pack to meet you all
We had put aside the lions
And were really having a ball.
“We’ve been watching you” said Nitro
You’ve quite an amazing Pack
We liked the way
They stood by you
And had each other’s backs.
I know you’d like to finish this
But you all have done enough
We’re taking the lions
Off your hands
Gonna show them how to be tough
