Stirring Up Trouble

With today’s title, you probably think you know exactly who we are talking about, but someone different is stirring up trouble.

Q woos at the Queen

Q woos at the Queen

Qannik was being quite the motor mouth with the Queen, listing all of his complaints of the day. She appeared less than receptive to his whining.

Go away, Fluffy Wonder!

Go away, Fluffy Wonder!

The entertaining part about Q is he doesn’t listen to well to such “suggestions” and just keeps on pushing.

I want to tell you mooooooooore!

Time is running out, so mail a Valentine to your favorite member of The Herd at Dog’s Name, PO Box 1835, Maggie Valley, NC 28751. And, if you wish, enclose a check made payable to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation and we will make sure they get 100% of the donations. Your donations help orphaned animals like BeeBop:



You just can’t help falling in love with precious little BeeBop. This ‘teacup tabby’ is only 4 1/2 lbs as he approaches 7 months but just bursting with affection and personality for anyone in need of a playful companion. He has issues with his little GI system, requiring him to be on meds and special care taken with his diet. Because of this, he is classified as “special needs” and his adoption fee is waived for the right adopter.

    The title certainly had me fooled. Sorry for forecasting you, Typhoon. This time you were an angel.

    There was a third fluffy butt in that last picture… I’m guessing Kiska? Go ahead Q! Talk it out sweetheart???❤️?

      Yes, that is Kiska. The Chief of Security is rarely far from the Queen and wanted to intervene in the yelling. Of course, she was “helping” by yelling, so it was getting quite loud.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
