For George

As many of you have probably read, our furiend George, of Welsh Terrier fame, was just entered in an informal sort of dog show by his well meaning, but perhaps a little misguided, Dad. It seems that dog shows have not, so far, been the best venue for George to shine. George did not win. Or place. He came in last. This is incomprehensible to Franklin and me both. George is a Terrier of so many talents. Not only does he have a super terrific blog, he's just a wonderful travel writer. He's a  Morris dancer. We only learned what a Morris dancer was from George, so there you go! He's an educator, too. That's just scratching the surface, I'm sure, but on top of this multitude of abilities, George remains a regular dude and will accompany his Dad to the pub for a pint any time at all. Plus, he's very good looking, don't you think?

Well, we know that George is Best of Breed in our hearts so we are presenting him with our own blue ribbon for first place. We hope he'll accept it in the spirit in which it's given.
George, you're the best! 


  1. Well Done!!

    Hip..Hip..HooooRAY for George!!!!!!!!

  2. Great post! George is wonderful doggie with an amazing bloggie!

    Your pal, Pip

  3. You are a wonderful furriend, Lola. I'm sure George must be very excited to have received such a thoughtful reward.

  4. I think George will be thrilled! I also think you deserve a blue ribbon for being a great friend!


  5. Hi Lola!
    Just gave you an award on my blog!


  6. Oh Lola, what can I say,you are such a good furiend, thank you so much, this sure has made my day. All you mean more to me than a hundred dog shows put together.
    Moms on her way out to work, so I will catch you later
    George, mom says that's real nice of you to. xxx

  7. Well done, George! You're always the best!

    Lola, you're the sweetest friend ever!

  8. Excellent choice of Award Lola. We too are big fans of George. Despite reservations about the advisability of folk dancing (by human or terrier). He always makes Gail homesick for England when he goes with his Dad to those cosy country pubs for a pint of beer.
    Toodle pip!

  9. Brilliant! George definitely deserves that wonderful blue rosette. Always 1st place for our George!

  10. Oh Lola, dat super sweets of you to do furs George...and I mean dat in all honesty too!
    Fur what it's worth, George will always be number one in our hearts and he don't needs one of them fancy schmancy ribbons from a show, yours has way more meaning than da other one.
    I just loves dat you did dis...FABULOUS!!!!!!

  14. Who cares about those beauty contest as long as we are the best of breed of the most beautiful breed to our pawrents eyes ..

    George you will always be no.1 !!


  15. Hi Lola, George mom here, its not often he lets me on the laptop!
    I'd just like to back up what George has said, I was so touched that you had taken the time to do a post on him, it not only made his day but also mine. I tend to forget he is only just over 10 months, to us he does not look like or act like a pup. He's very grown up for his age and for him to sit in that dog show for more than one hour, well he should have got a medal.
    Plus he was one of the best behaved dogs there, so yes he is our number one, along with all his friends in blogland

    Thanks again

  16. Arrr George is one in a million indeed, that was so nice of yu to do that fur him Lola yu be such a kindhearted peis in the whole wide world.

    PeeS. Ma says Fank yu so much for sending the leash she won for Angels Sister Molly it is so beeyootiful and she is goin to be savin it for any new sister that may be coming. She be sure Molly would approve

  17. Such a sweet post! We were flabbergasted that George didn't steal the entire show! I was thinking maybe the read the list backward by mistake! His dancing alone should win him a first place ribbon... and now it did!!


  18. Awwww, Lola! You're just the bestest! You haves such a good, kind heart and that's one of the million bajillion reasons that you're one of my BFFs! George is very much handsome and smart and he Most Definitely deserves that blue ribbon and lots more!

    Wiggles & WAgs,

  24. Hi Lola and Mom,
    We don't know George but we are going over to meet him!! What a great friend you are!!! I love you guys for your wonderful kind heart!!!!

  25. What a nice thing to do. You two are very thoughtful. We know how it feels to lose at the dog show, so we're sure George will appreciate this ribbon.

  26. Those dog shows are just so competitive. Heck, I entered against my brother flyod and he won even though we all know I am better looking. I think George is a fine chap and deserves a ribbon.


  27. Very nice of you, Lola! George the FIRST!!

  28. Three cheers for George! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!
