Conscientious Objector

When Chief of Security Kiska called for an immediate security patrol, a certain fluffy conscientious objector opted to ignore the request.

Ok, everypup, let's rally the troops.
Ok, everypup, let’s rally the troops.

Egads! A certain pup was expected to fall into formation and tread through the dewy grass on a perimeter patrol.

I might get my feety-feet wet!
I might get my feety-feet wet!

Uh, Qannik, you are the same cotton ball that likes to sit in rain and soak up as much water as possible. How can you possibly object to getting your feety-feet wet?

Dewy grass is totally different than rain.
Dewy grass is totally different than rain. Everypup knows that.

If you aren’t planning to join a security sweep, exactly what are you planning to do instead?

Do what I do best. Stay here and look handsome.
Do what I do best. Stay here and look handsome.

Uh, Kiska, Qannik is requesting a handsome deferment (or is that defurment?) and be exempted from security duties. What do you have to say to that?

Oh, good grief.
Oh, good grief.

    Captain Qannik was supervising.

    Love this! The pics are so great at telling their story. The expressions are priceless. Thanks!

    Aww Kiska & Qtip!! Love it!

    Ruby says that rain is ok when going for a walk, not when asked to go out in the yard.

    Hehehe! (Old post now, I know, but I’m catching up, ok?)
    Ava is EXACTLY the same – rain is okay, but wet feety-feet is just out of the question. Ever since she was a tiny pup.

    Is there ever a time when everyone is quiet at the same time?

      If they are all quiet at the same time, Hu-Dad better worry. That means they found something really interesting.

      Love Q Tip not wanting to get his feety feet wet. The perimeter Kiska too funny when not everyone cooperates.

    Qannik – the epitome of plush, occasional dignity and definite style!

  8. Zoe on May 25, 2016 at 9:13 am

    I think Qtip has been hanging out with Typhoon too much.
    But then again, all famous groups have a “face” a branding if you will
    Gone with the Wind employed thousands, but Clark Gable was the face
    So maybe that’s it… He didn’t rebel he was assuming his position as the face of the brand….
    See Hu-dad it wasn’t about wet feet…. It was all about doing what he does best
    Look handsome

    I wholeheartedly agree Qannik… Dewy grass is so not the same as rain! Good call!

  10. Dr. Liz on May 25, 2016 at 8:17 am

    Sheesh, Hu-Dad. EVERYpup knows that dewy grass is TOTALLY different than rain. Get with the program already! 😉

  11. Mom, Ice 'n Ebby on May 25, 2016 at 5:45 am

    Mom sez: Oh, my! I might have expected rebellion from Typhoon, or MAYBE even Frankie, but … but … Qannik? What’s wrong with this picture???
