Film Friday – Senior Sentry Cinema

Woo! A video two weeks in a row. We guess that makes “Film Friday” a tradition just like “Senior Sentry Cinema” is kind of an alliteration!

That's a stretch, Hu-Dad.

That’s a stretch, Hu-Dad.

Yes, yes, Qannik, we are sure that doing something two weeks in a row doesn’t make it a tradition. Still, we did get lots of requests to show the senior team in a video after showing the junior team last week. So the Hu-Dad hooked up the camera and followed the seniors on a sentry tour. There were no perimeter violations, so the tour was fairly quiet, but we have video anyway!

Scratch my ears. Now.

Scratch my ears. Now.

The video does answer two critical questions. Kiska demonstrates that the “actors” are paid with ear scratches. And, she demonstrates what happens to anyone who stops scratching before full payment has been received. The Claw!

So, without further wordiness from the Hu-Dad, we present this week’s feature film (almost a tradition!) – Senior Sentry Cinema!

    I’m with Becky – what a wonderful place to live. And it looked like Qannik was going to sound the alarm on the camera as an intruder!

    Love this video!
    What lucky dogs to have such a place to roam and their own porch.
    And that house – the humans have it pretty good too!

    It’s nice to see them move, albeit slowly.

    I love the video. I love watching the wind blows in kiska’s fur. I lover her fluffiness. Q-tip is so thick and fluffy too and I bet he sheds like crazy. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
