Obe BUN Kenobi

Obe BUN Kenobi



I am Obe BUN Kenobi.


Obe Wan Kenobi explained, “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power.  It’s an energy field created by all living things.  It surrounds us and penetrates us.  It binds the galaxy together.”


I am Obe BUN Kenobi.


I only bark when I want food or to go outside.  Well, sometimes, when I’m in my stroller, I bark to get people’s attention.  I like it when they pay homage to me.


The rest of the dogs go off when the doorbell rings.  I’m chill.  I just wait.


I know who I am.  I’m confident.

When I arrived in the Hooker Horde, I weighed 22.5 pounds.  Diet and exercise reduced my weight to a svelte 14 pounds.


Everyone loves me. 

When we go walking, the neighbors come out to see me. 

On the outside, I’m a morbidly obese senior toy poodle with Cushing’s Syndrome.  My fur is thin, my skin is dry, and my nose is cracked. 

But, I know who I am.  I am Mr. Sunny Sunny Bun Bun or Obe-BUN-Kenobi. 


I’m happy to sit in someone’s lap and expose my big Buddha belly. 


I heard hu-mom say that she was surprised she loved me so much.  She said something about not knowing she could love a dog that wasn’t “hers.”  She’s mine.  It just took me awhile to find her. 


The reality is, I’m a senior with some pretty serious health issues.  In the last two weeks, while my waistline trimmed down, I started drinking more water and urinating more.  Hu-mom just put down some puppy pads for me.  Hu-mom knows that stuff can be replaced.  She’s relaxed like that. 


Even though she’s mellow about stuff getting damaged, she worries about me.  Dr. Prior told her that I’m not in pain. 



Obi WAN told Luke Skywalker, “The Force will always be with you.” 


To my family and friends, when I am gone, my Force will still be with you.
