Perimeter Patrol With The Queen

Yesterday, we highlighted Qannik’s reluctance to participate in security duties. The Queen, however, enjoys perimeter patrol.

A good leader is out front.

Without a doubt, the Chief of Security role belongs to Kiska. She takes her duties seriously, but Queen Natasha sets the overall tone. And what better way to demonstrate leadership than to do the dirty jobs.

Thanks to the magic power of laser treatment and, now, acupuncture, The Queen enjoys good mobility. A periodic stroll around Sibe Quentin is good exercise, too.

After a robust turn around the yard, Natasha retreats to the covered porch to do the most important work of a leader – snoozervising.

It's good to be Queen.

    I am so glad that the Queen is doing so well! I prayed for her last summer and continue to do so. She is one of the herd that I am hoping to meet. I am a herd groupie, I guess????????.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

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.
