Long Weekend


Qannik and Kiska – Positions in the Jeep are claimed


Of course The Rooster is smiling for a Jeep ride


But even Queen Natasha is smiling at the thought of a long weekend


Catching some wind in the back of the Jeep

Hoping everyone in the USA is having a great holiday weekend.  We will be cruising in the Jeep and hiking lots of trails, not to mention being admired by lots and lots of tourists.  Whatever your plans, stay safe and have lots of fun.

P.S. – And for our friends outside the USA, declare it a holiday weekend and take Monday off work.  Tell your humans to tell their bosses that The Herd said it was ok.  After all, none of us dare challenge Queen Natasha the Evil, so your human shouldn’t either.

    Sounds like you had great plans for the weekend! Mom ditched me and left me home with dad. I’m still catching up on all the blogs.

    I like you ruling from Queen Natasha. Could we use that every Monday?

    i love the fur coming out of Kiska’s ears! it just makes me want to grab it. btw: i found two different harnesses that may work. padded, go under the belly and clip (quick release) on either side of the back. Loki was way cool with it. obviously not a long term safe as probalby your harnesses, but i travel less mileage.
    can’t wait to try them out!

    With a smile like that Natasha cannot be evil! Of course folks wonder why we call Lucy “Lucifer” when they see her smile!

    Thanks Herd! I wouldn’t dare argue with Queen Natasha either.

    Have a woofing good time! I hope that the weather is sunny and 60 deg!

    I love the photo of Rusty on the La Fuma on his home home page. My dog, R, never sleeps on the ground either, and steals my la fuma if I leave for only an instant! Maybe there’s a new market that La Fuma should enter – dog furniture!
