Cabel Does The Renn Fest....
Cabel and I had a right fine time at the Renn Fest today. I was excited because I got to hang with BFF (hey, always wanted to use that in a sentence) Best Stemple, and excited to see old friends that I hadn't seen in yonks.
Cabel was excited because he got to go somewhere in the car, and hey, whatever works for him.
Sat it with bad boys Bedlam, my very first band ever. They insist it is still my band, and whatever I say goes. Didn't bring my violin but of course, multi talented them, they had a spare for me. I love those guys. Had a fine time playing with them, and got into all the long time fans being excited I was there again.
Which lasted a very brief moment. Before Cabel stole the show from me. It was enough that we couldn't walk two steps without someone commenting, asking about, wanting to pet or going gaga over him, but then people (not ones I knew) started looking at him, stopping, looking at me, then saying "OMG! Is that HIM?????" I knew it was so not about me any more.
Dog is a rock star in his own right. He has his own fans. Obviously, this is very wearing on him, and we had to frequently nip backstage for breaks. It was simply all too much. He did handle the attention like a pro, and drank like a fish. Only, however, from water that had not been touched by any other dog. This is clearly a dog with a rider in his contract.
After hours I had the idea we might go on home, long day, very hot, I had been playing some music, rocking and such, but clearly Cabel had other ideas. He had hooked up with some Babes, and was up for some after hours tent action. Into tent and onto the bed with not one, but two of them. Even doing the old "I can make my eyes two different colours I am so cool" trick.
Dog needs an entourage, I am thinking. Too much for little old me.
I finally pried him away and chauffeured him home, after pouring him into the car (he slept all the way, the sod)
Thinking we both had a pretty fine day.
Love and Renn Fest,
