Daddy's Girl

Morgan and Rob have a special bond. She wants to always be with him no matter what he may be doing and will sit or lie quietly for hours in the garage or the office as he works on projects. When he was sick a few years ago, she gave all sorts of signals beforehand that we didn't understand and once he was home from the hospital, she never left his side.
Now it's his turn. She had surgery the day after Christmas for several cysts and lumps. Now that she's recovering, she expects him to wait on her and be close by at all times. One morning a few days after her surgery I woke up to find her wearing a gray flannel jacket. Rob had made it for her from some extra soft flannel. He fitted it to her so that most of her incisions were covered and would be protected.
It's perfectly fine with her, after all, her special person made it for her.

Awww, how sweet. It's funny how every dog loves everyone, but just adores one person above all others.

I love it. I think you know that the Knight and Mugsy FINALLY bonded when the Knight was at home after his hip replacement. Then, as Mugsy's own rear legs failed him, I truly wondered if I was still the be all and end all of Mugsy's world... I do know that the Knight took M's death at least as hard as Fred's, and he was the one who just had to have another JRT.

Well that explains why he was messing around in your craft stuff. ;) Glad she is doing okay. g

That's so sweet! Morgan looks very comfortable in her flannel jacket. Hope all the incisions are healing nicely.

Such a sweet relationship!

Rob did a nice job on the jacket and I am sure his girl appreciates it very much.

Cheers and hugs,
