Weekend Away

Hello to all of you, we're back home, so will be catching up with you over the next week, hello to my new followers will come and see you to. Right I don't think I need to tell you but this is one of the longest posts I've done!!! so make sure you've got yourself a drink and some nibbles, there we go




Ok if you read the Saturday Steps Excusive, you will know that we ended up in this place called Barmouth.
Right by the sea, the weather was good and not to hot, the best was we were stopping in the same B&B as Molly, Taffy and Monty, it made it even more special because it was Molly's Birthday on Saturday and Taffys on Sunday, I got them both presents, but Taffy please don't drink the bottle in one go!! you might end up doing more zoomies than you can handle!!
This photo was taken first thing in the morning, just before they dumped me in the car, so they could go and get breakfast!!! Dad said he'd bring me a sausage but I don't remember seeing one all weekend!      


Anyways they came back a while later, got in the car and we ended up at this place


yep a hotel called George The 3rd Hotel.
 Now I may be a dog of very little brain but why put a sign there, know body in there right mind would picnic on water! and were the heck is the hotel, its not this way



Only joking here it is, just look what mom did missed the G off!!



I was going to leave this out and put it in one of my posts about my name and places but, this George the 3rd came back to haunt me on Sunday!

We had to get back quick, other wise we would miss the walk. The meet up was at the end of the sea front, walking down it we came across a pup called Buster, it was the first time he had been out after all his jabs.



I told him not to worry, I'd play gently with him.
I have to say he was a cute little feller.



I'd not met this little lady before, she was called Bonnie, "Bow Wow".


Then out the corner of my eye I see the one and only Jenkins on the beech



"Dad quick lets go down and say hi" 


Jenkins is into Morris Dancing to, we always have a little jig together.

I'm tired out already!! and the walks not started. The rest of the gang turned up, including the famous Molly, Taffy and Monty, and we were on are way.











When we got to the other side of the hill we had a break.


Monty and me had a chat, he was telling me how funny it was that most of the entries into the who did it competition thought Taffy did it lol.

We knew it would never be taf, us Welshies would never do anything like that.
 Taffy got a neck rub from dad.



A group shot



Time to move on.



I need a drink!!!! it's WATER not BEER





 We got over the other side of the estuary by walking across the bridge, you can just see it in this photo, the peeps had to pay 70p return!!!



Anyways we were walking back across



Mom was just taking this photo when the hole bridge started to shake, what the heck was going on!!! 



Then this appeared from no where, right above are heads, now I'm used to trains, but not that close, it scared the living day lights out of all of us.

     


We quickened up the pace to get across before another one came.

On getting back to the town it was fish and chips for tea, yes I did get a tiny peace
of fish. Then back to the B&B for a sleep. 

Sunday
 do I look worried well yes I was!!!


"DOG SHOW" did you say "DOG SHOW"
I've been in one of them before, and got unplaced in the category  "The dog the judge would like to take home" ( click on this link if you want to see the post)

So we get to this place called Arthog, Dad enters me into "Best  Graduate" and "The Best Welsh Terrier" group
We take a seat and wait and wait and wait, one hour yes over an hour I was sat there!! with not one sign of a treat, how I held meself together I don't know.


"Dad how much longer"

"Soon I hope, my legs are going to sleep, wished you'd lost that Kg in weight!"

"have we got to do that dad"  

"yes"


"Right we're on, don't worry George just follow me, no back on the black mat"




"How did we do dad, how did we do" 

"Shhh the judge is watching"



"Dad I feel sick, how much longer"

"Will you be quite, you sound just like your mother, it won't be long" 



"Yey George your 3rd, well done"

Hang on that was the name of that Hotel George The 3rd, how freaky is that!!
3rd there was only three of us in the group, that makes me last again!!



"Right we're in the next round to, The Best Welsh Terrier"

"Do yea think if I do a bit of me folk dancing I might get points for it"

"You can try if you want"



"You know dad I'm not into this show lark, promise you won't put me though this again"

"George its just a bit of fun,we love you as your are, so it doesn't matter where you are placed"



"Hey mister judge how have I done?"



"Dad it aint looking to good"



Ahhhhh LOL!!!! BOL!!!!
Last!!!



I got two rossettes for me trouble, plus some dog food.

They are on my bedroom door, I don't mind coming last some one has to, I bet them other dogs don't have a dog blog with furiends from all over the world, that means more to me, so I won't be going to any more dog shows. Did you hear that dad, no more dog shows.




So there you have it, my Weekend Away.



Till next time have a good week, what's left of it.

George The 3rd and last lol !!!!!!!!

Swimtaxi said...

Some of the photos are just stunning.

The Daily Pip said...

Wow, George, what an action packed post!!! First, OMD, the pictures are beautiful. I especially like the first one on the beach in the morning and the one of you and your dad on the bridge (before the train). That train looks very scary.

Bonnie is pretty cute. Did you get her number?

Your pal, Pip

Tweedles -- that's me said...

George
I am so proud of you. You are so wise, and yes.. I am sure all those other dogs do not have friends from all over the world like you do. I am very proud to be your friend. (I hope you know). I think your weekend looked exciting and fun... and entertaining, and you learned some new stuff, and met some new friends, but I always stop ,,,, like right now, and remember what really is important in life, and why we do what we do,,,, You give me inspiration George to be a better doggy, and I thank you for that.
It doed not matter to me if you got first or last or third,,,, its just that you tried and did your best.
thanks George for being true yourself
love

Bocci said...

George, what an interesting post-and great pictures, too! I refuse to believe that goofy judge awarded you a last place-you're first place with your blog friends!

Your buddy,

Wyatt said...

What a weekend! Love your dancing with Jenkins, your frisky business with Bonnie and your chat with Molly, Taffy and Monty! Don't pay any attention to those dumb judges. You are the cutest Welshie dog ever...you should have worn the pirate scarf into the ring! BOL

sprinkles said...

Did they take a look at your teeth, George? If they'd seen how white those choppers are, I think you'd have come in 1st place!

You're #1 with me, George!

jen said...

Great pictures!!!
Loved the story about the "dog show"!
We know how you feel George:)
The judge must of been visually impaired:)

Pat said...

Last? That judge should have gone to Specsavers!

The weekend away looks brilliant :) xx

Bouncing Bertie said...

Gosh George, what a beautiful place - ALMOST as beautiful as Scotland. And, by the looks of things, with better weather! But I do wish you'd remember what I told you about folk dancing!
Did I really gather that your folks found a B&B that would take four terriers? That truly is brave!
Oh and I'm well impressed with that bandana. So cool.
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I can't imagine you coming in last, George. That's just crazy stuff. You are clearly the best in show. I mean, we saw the pictures! True, it's a lot of handsome Welsh Terriers, but none to touch you. You will always be number one with us. The rosettes are quite nice anyway.

lotsa licks, Lola

Bella and Ollie said...

Wow, you really had a wonderful AND full weekend. We loved meeting all your furry furiends - that Buster was a cute patootie. That shaking and rattling would have shook us up too - that was quite the train.

Thanks for sharing your fun time.

I did not quite understand the ending about a Dog Show??? What the heck is that??? Everybody knows that you were the Best looking fellow in that group.
Oh! Almost forgot... Were you about to jump off the bridge when that HUGE train came by? Wow! I think I would have...

Great post my friend!

Eric said...

George.By george! You had a smashing weekend. Specially meeting Molly and Taffy and the lovely welshie walk. Don't you think us square cousins should be allowed? I'm going on the wiry walk and I think there might be welshie too.

Anyways. Did you roll in dead fish on the beach? Was the judge in your dog show blind? Didn't your Dad have any of that bribing papers or had it spent it all on beer and sausages for you back at The George George?? And your dancing with Jenkins was kind of cute. Who dances the boys steps you or Jenkins?Obviously I'm interested after my stunning performance tonight.....is it your turn next week?

Wiry love Eric xxx
