Bristol, a little puppy, has a lot of affection to give, but it mostly goes to her father, Nathan McNeese.
You might say Bristol has adopted him as her own. And she isn’t afraid to express it.
Alicia McNeese, McNeese’s wife, in particular.
Bristol has been the McNeeses’ pet since she was a puppy, yet she appears to have a different perspective on her status in the family. It’s all about her and Nathan in the small dog’s head.
“My husband is her go-to person,” Alicia told The Dodo. “It’s remarkable how close they are.”
Bristol adores Nathan and has no desire to part with him.
Bristol has created a specific expression exclusively for Alicia to let her know she isn’t interested in sharing Nathan’s adoration. The message is delivered clearly and loudly.
“‘Sorry, Mom, he’s my man,'” says the narrator. Alicia expressed her thoughts.
This underlying rivalry for Nathan’s affection manifests itself in a variety of ways, such as in this incident from a recent road trip. Bristol didn’t seem to like the fact that Alicia was riding shotgun.
Alicia explained, “At first, my head was resting on my husband’s shoulder.” “She replaced my head with hers when I lifted mine.”
Here’s a video of that moment:

Bristol is the one who will be placing his head on Nathan.
“I believe she was thinking to herself, ‘He’s my human.’ Alicia said, ‘Move on over, Mom.’
To her credit, Alicia seems unconcerned that Bristol has claimed her husband as her own. After all, she adores Bristol as well.
“When she wants to be,” Alicia added, “she is sweet.”
