Miss Natasha has always had a reputation for being a little difficult at times, but we thought we would share some adventures from Saturday to explain why she thinks it is good to be Queen.
Our day began before sunrise when Hu-Dad loaded us into our limousine (aka, the Jeep) to drive down the mountain to the Festival Grounds. We were loaded into our RV, fed breakfast and napped until the Festival gates were about to open.
We were all hooked onto the picket line in front of the RV to meet and greet all day, with the Queen making the last exit. At nearly 13 years old, she has earned the right to make the grand entrance after every other pup is in place. Except, she wouldn’t exit the RV.
That’s right. She refused. She said she did not want to. She protested loudly. After much persuading, she reluctantly agreed and joined the rest of us on the picket line.
After a few hours of adoring fans, Hu-Dad thought the Queen was tired and tried to guide her back into the RV – her very demand just a short time earlier. Yes, you guessed it, once again she refused. She wanted to stay outside. She protested. And, once again, she got her way.
But by the end of the day, she was exhausted – as were the rest of us. She was ready to go home and demanded it. We loaded back into our limousine, drove back up the mountain, ate dinner, and slept.
So after a long and trying day, Hu-Dad thought Miss Natasha wanted a quiet and peaceful day around the house on Sunday.
You see this coming, right? She complained loudly that she wanted to go back down for more attention!
It is so good to be Queen – one who can change her mind over and over and all of her subjects just to have to accept it.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
