Sentry and Security Services

Each member of The Herd has a role to play. Kiska, as Princess and Right Paw to the Queen of Evil, is head of Security Services. She patrols the perimeter fencing regularly, monitors fun levels (to make sure no one is having too much fun, much to the horror of a certain young pup), closely manages Q-Tips activities, and, most importantly, goes on alert to sounds only she hears.

Security Services

But I take Security Services Detail very seriously.


Nothing moves without my notice.

    Ayla sez: And when we Siberians go on “Red Alert”, you KNOW we’re on “Red Alert”, just by the way our ears are up and pointing forward!

    Since my pack is smaller, Loki serves as King, Court Jester, and Captain of the Guard.
