Qannik here. With my commanding lead in fundraising for the Valentines Hearts for The Herd Contest, I have been very confident around Chez Herd. Maybe slightly overconfident.

Here is my surprise attack on Natasha.

I should mention that she is really quick with that back step.


Yep – I missed.

I would prefer to end the story here and not discuss what happened next.

Don’t worry, Qannik, your real bragging rights are that you are way in the lead in fundraising for Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation with $333 raised – a huge part of the total $1090 raised so far by our readers. Yes, that is correct, our readers have contributed OVER a thousand dollars and we still have several days to go. You are awesome!
