Queen Natasha the Evil is adamant that she runs a very tight Herd with every member obeying, though she often tells the Hu-Dad, “You’re doing it wrong.”
As long-time readers know, Queen Natasha is a cancer survivor, an arthritis patient, and a TPLO recipient. With her 13th birthday approaching in a month, she has a medication routine that must be given with breakfast, dinner, and at high noon..
Yesterday, Hu-Dad had to leave the house at 12:30, so he decided to just wait until 12:30 for the Queen’s mid-day medication. Great plan, except he forgot to receive approval from the Queen in advance. Promptly at noon, she began pestering him for her “treats.” Hey, they come wrapped in peanut butter, so they are treats!
Hu-Dad compounded his error by getting everyone to settle into their crates before Natasha received her meds. Except, Natasha always gets her meds in the kitchen. ALWAYS. Guess who won that battle?
With the mid-day meds finally given, Hu-Dad took off on his errands. And he was gone a long time. Too long. Which made dinner late. During the entire dinner preparation, he heard Queen Natasha muttering over and over, “You’re doing it wrong.”

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.
