Everyone thinks Qannik has such an easy life, but he wants everyone to know all of the demands he has on his busy schedule.

Serious Security Work

The Chief of Security makes sure he puts in the appropriate amount of time on security work. Q says it may look like he doesn’t take this task very serious, but chasing butterflies is a specialty skill. You just never know when the butterflies will revolt and cause a major problem.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

June 3, 2013 |

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.
