Working Solo

With Queen Natasha the Evil still in recovery from her TPLO surgery, Kiska is working solo handling all of the security details.

Security is exhausting work.

As the Queen’s right paw, Kiska has long handled security detail. But when she has sounded the alarm, Natasha has raced down to take over defense measures (which, of course, primarily involves being loud). Right now, Kiska’s back up consists of Qannik, Frankie and Typhoon – and Kiska does not seem to be impressed with their abilities.

Hang in there, Kiska, Natasha will be back soon.

    Ice sez: Woooo, Kiska, glad to see you’ve got ‘Tasha’s back covered. Looks like you’re doing a pretty good job, too.

    It sounds like the boys are big slackers! Morgan says she’d love to come and help Kiska with security detail!

    Poor Kiska, can you not call RENT-A GUARD SHEPHERD and get a little professional help for a couple of weeks??
