Back Seat Driver


As the Queen of Evil, I am also in charge of navigation.


Thus I sit behind the hu-dad in the Jeep and tell him which way to turn.


Sure, I may look like I am getting sleeping, but I am a professional.


You would never catch me sleeping on the job.

    Stop on by for a visit

    Better than GPS! Besides, isn’t there ONE road up and down the mountain?

    • D.K. Wall on March 22, 2012 at 9:15 pm

      Well, there is one PAVED road. The hu-dad does drive a Jeep Wrangler, so pavement is not always required.

    We all know us Huskies are working our hardest when our eyes are closed.

    Squinting makes you focus more. True story.

    Just because you are resting your eyes doesn’t mean you are paying SuperClose Attention to everything the humans do. Seriously, you have to watch them ALL THE TIME – you never know what trouble they’ll get into if you aren’t paying attention! 😉

    Watchdogs never sleep. We lull humans into a sense of complacency when we close our eyes.

    Now I know you should never openly point this out in public but I’m gonna anyway. Is Natasha getting a little *ahem* whiter haired- shall we say? Or is it just the lighting?

    She looks like a very wise lady!

      Queen Natasha the Evil’s original nickname was “Baby Bear,” as opposed to Mama Bear Nikita. I used to carry Baby Bear around in one hand (there are some that swear her paws never actually touched the ground because I carried her so much. I reply that I carried her because that was the only way I was sure that she was not getting into trouble).

      Regardless, that seems like yesterday. The reality is that was 9 years ago. So, yes, you are seeing some grey in that hair. I guess my Baby Bear has somehow become Mama Bear over the years.

    Of course not! No true queen ever misses the opportunity to tell her minions where to go!

  12. Khyra on March 22, 2012 at 6:28 am

    Of khourse not –

    Not that I speak from experience 😉

    Great job navigating!


  14. zeeFM on March 22, 2012 at 3:23 am

    Of course not Natasha, you’re just squinting in the sun =D
