Three Weeks of Saturday Steps


A Year Ago


Hello and Welcome to this months Tess
Another action packed month from us.
So lets get on.


He Was Pushed!!

Tess pushed Colin in the pond! 

"No I didn't"

Take a look

He was posing for this photo and then he walked along the pond by Tess, the next thing

He's in!!!

You can make your own mind up, let us know if you think she pushed him


The Midland Game Fair

My first time working.
On show to the folks in the
 Gun Dog and Heritage Breeds Pavilion
Weston Park Game Fair 

We had to get there for 7.30am 
bright eyed and bushy tailed
Colin was working with us

Dad had to have a cup of tea and a bacon butty to get the day started

Look its a doggie prison!

Here's our doggie prison for the day
Can you see us?

My turn to go on the table and say hello to folks passing by

Colin and George's turn.
 Mom's the one in the blue.
 Colin's having his new collar put on by his Mom.

Colin and George got to go in the ring so folks could see and hear about the different breeds

George teaching Dad to sit :)

It was a long but enjoyable day



I'm doing fine, we are both taking Pedigree Joint Care+ sticks they have worked so well taking away my stiffness that my limp was showing up more, I have problems putting my left leg back.
We think I must have damaged it a sometime. I'm not in pain. 
Mom booked me in to see an animal spinal therapist.
 and I'm pleased to say I have no problems with my back, just got to keep swimming
 (no I didn't push Colin in the pond he fell in) 

Pedigree sent me a certificate and a fridge magnet for Mom

Thanks Pedigree

Tess joined our family, she was 5 months old, my life was never going to be the same again

Happy Gotcha Day Tess.

Cranberry Morning said...

I can hardly believe that it's been a year since Tess joined you, George! I'm sorry you had to be in doggie prison. Wouldn't anyone over there post bail? :-) Enjoyed your post, and I still think Tess pushed Colin.

Michelle said...

Thanks for getting me all caught up, George and Tess. I do love reading about all of your adventures!

Millie and Walter said...

julee said...

Happy Gotcha Day Tess! Your family is so happy you joined them and so are we!!!!!

Colin jumped in - totally all him! You're too sweet to push.

George, we'll be looking for some good steps, we're not missing the party this year.


Pat said...

I say pushed after he nabbed some of dad's bacon sarnie and you weren't allowed any!

Loved the issue - and happy gotcha day to Tess!

Didn't realise you had a twitter account George, will go follow you now :)


Bouncing Bertie said...

Tess, has it reallly been a year?
Regarding the 'Colin in the pond' matter, I am wondering if this is an argument about technicalities. Maybe what some would call a 'push' others might define as a 'nudge'?
Oh and George, thanks for your nice words about Gail's magazine article. I'm afraid the National Trust for Scotland has a separate magazine, so we haven't seen your Readers snapshot, but we knew your were a star anyway.
Toodle pip!

Eileen said...

Sorry Tess, we think you pushed Colin, you're looking very sheepish and your head's down in shame :-)

Happy happy 1st Gotcha Day Tess, we hope you're having a party with sausages and cake! You make us laugh so much, we love you too Little Miss Tess the Minx :-)

Ooh and George's birthday looming too, will have to get Annie posing for his birthday steps again!

You sure have been busy, glad you are both out out of prison...on bail ??? :-)

Love Eileen, Martyn and Annie xxx

My, that Colin is clumsy...just fell in that pond? Sheesch...and George....a year with sweet Tess...having a sissy is the best thing ever, isn't it dear boy...My brothers just adore me.....NOT!

Mumsie worked on Scruffy on Sunday...stipped him, did his nails, got every single mat out...and then he jailbroke the electric fence and got lost for an hour and a half. Daddy found him in the woods down a woodchuck hole....he had been digging for the entire time by the looks of it. See pic on bloggie....Mumsie thought he was a goner for was all her fault anyway. He still has burrs stuck in his furs...

Kisses and we need to find a pic of us for your THIRD BABY!!

Happy gotcha day Tess!! Thanks for sharing your first year with George. Btw, I don't think you pushed.. I think he fell... Hugs from Horatio and Harris.

Ryker said...

Hey you two, looks like you had a busy and wonderful month.
Tess, I think Collin may have jumped in the pond all on his own accord.
It has been a year and your as big as your brother George now. I'm so glad you two get along so well.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We thinks he fell in. Fenris who hates getting wet keeps falling in our pond (MOL). He always looks so embarrassed about it too.

Healing purrs for the left back leg.

And Happy Gotcha Day Tess. We will send a picture of Fenris along for the Birthday Steps to represent us.

Unknown said...
