Many people asked yesterday how Kiska is handling the transition without Qannik. Let’s say we are a little surprised at an unlikely friendship blossoming.
To answer the question many of you asked (and that we asked ourselves), we wondered who would migrate over to the senior porch. We realize that Cheoah is the oldest of the Juniors, but, being female, that didn’t strike us as the answer. Kiska adored Queen Natasha the Evil, but has always been partial to male dogs as her friends. Those of you who have met her know that she is quite the flirt. In fact, she has been known to throw herself at boy dogs she meets, quite literally.
So it was natural that she and Kodiak were best pals. And then Rusty. And, of course, Qannik. So we weren’t very surprised at all that she has gravitated toward a male among the Herd. We freely admit which male is a little surprising.
After a tough week, the smiles in this next photo warm our hearts. We apologize, Hu-Dad took it with his phone at sunset, so the photo is not very clear, but we think the grins come through.
Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and well wishes. We really appreciate all of the support.
