Ok, ok, we made a little fun of Qannik yesterday. But here is the whole story. Qannik used to be over eager to get into the Jeep and so he was taught (yes, sibes actually can learn something) to wait until being invited into the Jeep. And, yes, we drop his leash because he will really sit still until we ask him to get into the Jeep.
By the way, you will never see a picture of Natasha with the leash on the ground. As Golden Boy Luke says, just saying.
