Mabel & Bessie

I know I mentioned car trouble a few posts back. Well, ol' Bessie (all cars in my family are named Bessie) has been in and out of the shop for a week now. And after $1200.00 in repairs (new catalytic converter, intake air valve thingy and new (from the Jeep junkyard) on board computer), she's purring like a kitten.

I picked her up from the shop today, took her up our one major road and brought her home.

Mabel was so happy, she actually kissed the car! Repeatedly. She was not a happy camper in the rentals... there was no seat for her. I think she missed Bessie more than I did.

I'm reposting the old photo of Mabel sitting on her seat:

$1200.00-ouch! But at least you know you won't be stranded somewhere. Mabel is a pretty smart puppy! Knows what she likes. This picture still cracks me up.

aw, that's so cute! I hope she doesn't sit like that when the car's moving, though! Seems precarious. ;-)

Jackie, Worth every penny! It was so frightening when she just wouldn't go!

Janet, Of course she rides that way. It's really very stable. Her front feet reach to the floor and she uses them to hold on. She was so funny in the rentals... had to stand in the rav 4 and she slid all over the back of the Buick.

Isn't it funny what animals kiss? My dog kisses the chair his "master" (hah) sits in, especially when he wants to join the man.

I'm glad you've got your own wheels back.

Oh, now I see the back seat is folded down. I thought she was perching on the top of the back seat. She looks so cute in that photo!
