A Smiling Q Is Infectious

The most happy-go-lucky member of The Herd is Qannik. He is always grinning and, trust us, a smiling Q is infectious. You just can not help laughing at his good nature.

post all about me

A post all about me? Cool.

Yes, yes, Q-Tip, we are focused solely on you today. We should explain to the readers that you had just been out enjoying a sudden shower, so your thick, white fur was also soaking wet. And when you are wet, you love to give hugs to humans.

look fluffy

Don’t I look fluffy!

Do us a favor, though, and show the readers that you can be serious for at least a second or two. Ok?

    Since I hadn’t been around for a while, I hadn’t remembered to check this blog… but when I had Gatsby staying with me, well, she’s always loved hugs, but when it poured one day I found out she loves soaking up rain too! So I thought of Q-Tip – I remember vividly your description of him as a giant soaking cotton ball. What is it about fluffy white dogs?

    When I’m wet, I love to get on my daddy’s bed and dry myself, but for some reason my name becomes “no no, get off there damnit!” – Leena
