When Marlin Met Mardi

"As Harry puts it, men and women can never be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
                                                                                                       -When Harry Met Sally

September 16th marks one year since sweet Marlin joined our family. My first impression of him was that he was much larger than I anticipated and quite a little mop-head. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with this smart, cuddly horse of a dog. When I tell him to "love mama", he rests his head sideways on my shoulder. He seriously knows how to work me! Mardi, on the other hand, took a little convincing......

Including the lady that weighed him
(P.S. Did we earn frequent flyer miles with this ticket?)

At first, Mardi kept her distance

She wouldn't even let him in her house.
If she had thumbs, she would have written a sign in big letters that said KEEP OUT!

But then, Marlin started enticing her into games of tug of war, fetch & the like

Soon, Marlin showed her that he loved to lay on the ground while she "attacked" him, much to her delight 

While she wasn't used to playing with another dog, muchless one twice her size,
she eventually warmed up to him.....literally :)

And now they are BFF's

"I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible"

Sometimes when I am bored, I like to style Marlin's hair. Truth be told, he loves it. Seriously, he does! I guess it is a good thing that I always have projects lying around waiting to be finished so I am not bored too often. :)
