Qannik Labors on Labor Day

We are celebrating Labor Day in the United States, so Qannik thought he would do his part. This is his best attempt to look like a worker.

An actual security patrol . . . all by myself. Labor Day

An actual security patrol . . . all by myself.

Yesterday evening, all was quiet at Chez Herd. The security experts had already swept the perimeter and were confident that Sibe Quentin was safe.

Suddenly, Qannik sat up in alarm, wooed, and raced to the fence. Well, raced at top speed for a Q-Tip.

The rest of The Herd watched in amazement and curiosity as Qannik slid to a stop and growled at the threat just outside the fence. Yes, Q successfully cornered the very first fallen leaf of autumn. We all felt much safer as he triumphantly returned to the deck.
