|Heather made it clear where Mr. K's place is in the pecking order.|
The power of a woman can never really be overestimated. Her ability to rule the roost, persuade the masses and even mold the next generation are reasons enough to quantify this statement. A woman's impact on the world is often found in her ability to lead and from the moment I brought Heather into our home, I realized I had one powerful little lady on my hands!
After we got home from our journey to Tennessee, I invited Heather to hang out in some of Mr. K's favorite spaces so he would understand the apartment was no longer his, but theirs to share. As can be expected, he didn't like this at first but I was firm and didn't let him back on the bed or the couch until he proved he could rest peacefully with his new companion by his side.
Within a few hours and only two grumbles under his breath later, Mr. K got the message Heather was just as entitled to free access around the apartment as he was and so, everyone settled in to the new arrangement. They never fought but it became clear over the next few months that the top dog, very much to my surprise, was not going to be Mr. K after all.
The day I knew for sure Mr. K had lost the running for alpha dog was when I saw this: instead of pushing Mr. K aside, Heather had chosen to sit on TOP of Mr. K, who was sitting contentedly in the passenger seat of the car. Leave it to Heather to dispel the rumor that women will walk all over their men - she shows us here that men are adequate means of support, allowing us to experience a new lease on life with a fabulous view...in this case, out the passenger window!
