    Is Petraeus Red Rascal’s love interest?

    Petraeus is Red Rascal’s Horse (if memory serves, white in the tradition that the ‘good’ guys always ride white horses).

    I know, but Becca’s description makes one think there might be more there.

    Becca is into horses in a “romantic” way?

    LWP,
    Apologies, the site (or my computer) were so slow this morning, all I could see was your comments, and my memory of this rerun was of the statement in the 3rd panel.

    Maybe, she would prefer working at Harlequin.

    Disappointing. Never seen such a thing. Poor taste in Doonesbury. Can’t believe what I see. Gotta go before it’s too late. Better remember the good old satire and forget what I saw here in the last two days. Bye.

    I think she used to be a librarian. If not, she should be!

    Horses can have strange effects on women.

    Sounds more like Becca’s love interest….

    Somehow Jeff and Becca remind me of Dudley Do-Right and Nell. Dudley liked Nell, but she was only interested in Dudley’s horse. Of course, Dudley’s horse was the brains of the operation.

    I remember this sequence. Petraeus and his lathered haunches reminded me of the Byrds song, “Chestnut Mare,” where Roger McGuinn apparently wants to marry a horse.
    “I’m gonna catch that horse if I can,
    And when I do I’ll give her my brand,
    And we’ll be friends for life.
    She’ll be just like a wife.
    I’m gonna catch that horse if I can.”

    Well, why not? Pee-wee Herman married a fruit salad on “Pee-wee’s Playhouse”!

    Nothing like the smell of a sweaty stallion to get the female heart beating….

    Dennis Rodman married himself. He was the bride, the groom, the best man and the maid of honor. He really saved on the catering costs.
