Saturday Steps and a meet up with Boomerang

Boomerang it that really you?


"Yes its me"


"Wow Boomer, don't mind if I call you Boomer do you Boomerang, sooo pleased to meet you in the fur, thats a great book you've done, hope you will sign a copy or two for me"

I must tell my blogging friends
 about how famous you are around here.


Do any of you remember these
Saturday Steps

I told you I was on a secret mission,
Well it was to help Boomer out.

The first time I visited Delidale

in the post

I left my blogging card with the owner, and later I got an email from Boomer saying he is doing a book about  dog friendly walks around Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale, and is looking for  Canine Chums to test out the walks and do a comment to go in the book.
I was soo excited, me being asked if I would like to do a walk, yes please

I was to do
The Historical Walk

Which just so happens some of it I had done on the post
You know I took my girlfriend Stanzie with me

So here are some photos taken on the secret mission






















This is Boomerangs Book
12 Dog Friendly Walks Around Ironbridge & Coalbrookdale.

This is the page with me on!
 The Historical Walk, the maps are very clear and along with good directions even mom wouldn't get lost on one of these walks.


You can Follow Boomerang on Twitter

You can also buy the book at


Now you might have noticed I have three copy's of the book, well we took a return visit to Delidale with a 4 paws up award to say thank you, as without them me and Boomer would have never met

They have the book on sale so I asked mom if she would buy a couple for a give away

All you have to do is leave a comment, I know some of you are still having problems with Blogger so if you would like to be in the draw just email me at
georgethelad(at)googlemail(dot)com
The draw with close Friday 16th at 20.00 BST
The winners will be announced on next Saturday's post.

Mom won't let me on Twitter, she says my blog takes up enough time!! but go give him a visit and say George sent yea :)

Till Next Time
Have a Good Week
See Yea George xxx

PS Boomer's signed the books and I have signed my page to.
I have been a bit behind this week doing my visiting, will try my best to pop by soon.

How thrilling to meet an author in the furs!! He seemed like a furry nice fellow. Your photographs of the walk were beautiful. We really liked the one looking through the tunnel with you standing in front!

And we really like your new header picture!! You're lookin' sharp!

Have a good week, George!

Lucky George - you met a real live authorpup!!! How cool was that! You got some great pics here, we love the tunnel one too, and the one with the big wheel at the beginning. We hope Boomerang's book is very successful.

We also think that very first photo is so cool with you looking up and Boomerang looking down and then the two of you meeting in the next one - great photo story:)

Your pal, Pip

Cranberry Morning said...

My goodness, George. I didn't know you were famous and friends with an author. Ya know George, I'd take you on walks anywhere - and I'd never take you to the police station. lol

houndstooth said...

How totally awesome! You met the author AND you contributed to the book, too! I am totally impressed!

Hi George! What neat steps! And your friend is very cute!

Licks,

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Why is your Pa taking you to the Pawlice station... have you been naughty??? I don't believe it!

You and Boomer are so lucky you have such beautiful walks to do, and now you are famous to boot!! I'm proud of you George.

My mum is thinking of doing the scavenger hunt photo thingy this month.... she'll decide later! You always make them look so good.

Bye now, Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Amber-Mae said...

How cool you got to meet a celebrity book author! The pictures are lovely as usual & you look like such an innocent puppy in the last picture. Too cute!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hi George, you are such a star! The book looks great too. Gail is always thinking that she should write a book about dog-friendly walks in the Aberdeen area. If she ever gets round to it, I'll demand that you come up and try out one of the walks with me.
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

karen said...

Hi George, Boomerang here! Looking at the photos reminds me of what good old fashioned puppy fun we had last week! All these lovely comments are going to my head I may have to start wearing shades and getting an agent! Anyway thanks for all your help with the book and see you on the next walk. I'm off on the Sunday Morning Walk now (yes I know its Sat but I like to be different!). Sausages for brekkie
Boomer

Adien Crafts said...

Hi George! How brilliant, not only do you get to help a famous 'pawthor' but you get to test out the walks, that has to be a great idea. Boomer looks like a great pal to have and the photo's of the walk look fantastic. Have a great weekend whatever walk you have, Dex & Lou x

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

That is just fantastic, George. You got to have a great walk AND you get famous! We are soooo impressed.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

Maybe you could include a few of those sausages in the prize--just an idea.

Molly the Airedale said...

OMG, you're even more famous, George! You always have the greatest fun-filled adventures!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Unknown said...

Awesome! You're so famous, George! It's really cool that you met the doggy author and you're in the book too.
We always love to read about your walks, those steps and those historical places.
Can't wait to read the book now.
Have a great weekend!

J_on_tour said...

Congratulations on being famous George. Some nice shots here, love the one looking sideways on the steps beside the bridge.
Believe me, you have enough to worry about without twitter. I signed up for twitter and have only tweeted once. I keep getting e-mails from them to say that I am not using the service. All of my internet time is taken up with trying to edit 100's of photos, Facebooking them to friends and of course blogger as well.

Scooter said...

Hey George!
Wow, what a pawesome meeting with Boomerang. I bet he was a bunch of fun. That's a wonderful book...especially since you are in it!! He should have gotten your autograph too. Great pix.
Grr and Woof,
