Happy Tenth Birthday, Queen Natasha the Evil

A very Happy Tenth Birthday to our fearless leader. No, not the hu-dad, he is waaaaaaaaay older than that. We mean Queen Natasha the Evil.

Happy 10th Birthday

Queen Natasha patrolling the perimeter and making sure her Herd is safe.

QNTE is the only member of the current Herd who came here as a puppy (and the only one whom we know the actual birthday). All of eight weeks old, she was quite clear about her proper place in the pack.

Confidence.

Eight weeks old – and exuding confidence.

From the very beginning, the current reining Queen, Nikita, took little Princess Natasha under her wing and taught her all the evil ways of leading the Herd. Natasha would follow Nikita everywhere, usually just by clamping onto her neck and being drug from place to place.

Queens

Princess Natasha and her mentor, Nikita

Most of the advantage of being Queen is being totally unapologetic about any trouble that is caused. If you just look confident, who can ever get mad?

Mud?

Mud? What mud?

And one of the great pleasures of being Queen – you can act like a kid any time you want to.

So, we hope everyone will join us for some cake and wish Queen Natasha the Evil a very Happy Tenth Birthday!

    Ayla and Ice BOTH say: HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY, Queen Natasha. Ice will be celebrating his 11th Birthday on June 21st, “The Longest Day”, and Ayla will be having her 9th Birthday on July 11th, so we’re ALL “getting up there”. May we ALL have a whole bunch more! (Me ‘n Ice are looking forward to the DQ ice cream cones we always get on our birthdays.)

    A very, very happy birthday to you, Natasha. You’ve reminded the hu-mom that our sister Angel (Kipnuk’s great auntie) would have been ten this year if she was still with us. She misses her lots, but we won’t let her be sad. Hope you get lots of cake! ~ Daisy

  26. Rottrover on June 10, 2013 at 1:46 am

    Yes! That cake is for you, your highness, and you don’t have to share!
