Mabel & the Rocketman

I wrote about all we did in the crazy 46 hours Becky & the Rocketman were here over on the Folly blog (Monday morning allergy stupor left me with nothing to say over there!) But I HAD to put some pictures here.

When we pulled into the driveway, Mabel was in a deep sleep in the garage...VERY deep! I called to her and she groggily lifted her head, saw the Rocketman in my backseat and made a beeline to him. After a wet embrace in the driveway, she allowed RM and Becky to unpack and then she spent a lot of time in a position I RARELY see. Seriously, Mabel Lou does not do submission! Unless Rocketman is around:

She had him scritch her ears

and rub her back

and turned into the demanding beeatch we all know and love when he dared stop.

They played on the floor

and when he sat in the chair, she ran and got her elk antler to "show off" her skills

And she even found a little love for "the other woman" in Rocketman's life. Mabel loves Becky. She loves me... But she loves Rocketman most of all!
It was so good to see our friends and they are gone all too fast. Rocketman has jetted off to Asia and Becky is back home in Minnesota.

I have sometimes wondered if it is generally true that female dogs bond closer with male humans, and male dogs with female humans. I just know that we have only had two long term female dogs, and that they were closer to me than to Peggy, and that our current male dog (the only male we've had) seems to prefer Peggy to me. I need to point out though that both dogs are fond of both of their humans.

What a nice time Mabel seems to have had! Three people to cater to her every whim. Lucky pup! (and glad you had a good time, too!)

I finally made it to this post and now I realize I shouldn't have. Mommy saw it and now she's jealous of Mr. Rocketman
