My Last Post From SFF

Morning to you all, its the last day of the festival, and I'm busy packing up me bed.
  To some up the weekend, I have enjoyed it, lost me temper a couple of times, I do get a bit grumpy when I don't have me afternoon sleep.
 Evey body has been very nice to me, so I am hoping that we can come back next year.
Yesterday I came across something funny, some peeps had brought with them, not one but two stuffed dogs!! how weird is that !! 

To finish off with, we have photos of the Morris dancer's and some of the artists at night

Hi George what a fantastic post and what fun you all had. Mom and I are LOL at you checking out the stuffed dogs....what in the world made them bring stuffed dogs? That is too funny.

We enjoyed to colorful festival pictures today with all the beautiful costumes.

Happy Monday

Wow, George! Looks like so much fun - music, costumes, new friends, food - what else could a dog want!!

Cat said...

Hey Georgey-boy!! Just have to say that I luv, luv that first photo of you on your yesterday post...face fur flying back! hahah!! Yeah, those stuffed dogs are really strange, but I can see from the way your nosin' them that you weren't too sure about them. What, did they look too real? Did they look real, but smell not real? Were they too quiet? Did they not send you love vibes? I suppose you dogs work on a whole other system of greetings than we cats do...but I can say that once I saw a stuffed teddy bear and I went up to it (after circling it several times) and gave it a big smack in the face then I walked away. Even if they aren't real, you gotta MAKE SURE they know who the BOSS is. I hope you settled that straight away with those stuffed boys. Thanks for sharing your pics of the festival...must have been lots of fun. Did you do a lot of barking with the singing and dancing? Or did you just dance? I would have been are very brave!! Hope you can rest up this week and make up for lost naps. Purrs, Lautrec (and Tiny)

It looks like the Shewsbury Folk Festival was fantastic! I sure wish I could be there! Sure did look like a lot of fun!

About those stuffed dogs, well, I guess that those peeps don't have to worry about feeding and taking them on walkies! BOL

woo woos, Tessa

It seems you had a good time. Those stuffed dogs looked well behaved:) All those people with costumes and streamer would be baking in the heat over here today! Hopefully, all of you were more comfortable. I'm less grumpy with a nap too, dear!

can you recommend me a good welsh terrier breeder?(

Eric said...

Hey George. wagging good reporting, I enjoyed it every single one. You got paid right? Twenty ten of the pieminster pies each day is the going rate.

Your welshie jigging was...oooo haaaaarderhaaaadeharrharrr I mean I was impressed at your teeehheeeeteeheee...

Now George. The photo of you with your furs flying. Mom almost had a little accident she was laughing so hard. Get the leggeds to get you the must ash wax. And a bit of advice for a young windy snapper like yourself (hahhahahhaaa!!) a quick spray of John Freida Frizz Ease on your bed head bonce never goes amiss.

Wiry love and kisses ERic xxx
