Bertie's Field Trip.

Bouncing Bertie is having a field trip and would like furiends to come along, but  there is a twist in the T'ale, he want's evdence that you are well prepared for field work in Scotland!!
Check out his post for suggestions that might get you on the trip. I have picked up on this one,
"Maybe you have some photos illustrating that boulders, cliffs, mountains and midges are totally your thing"

So here goes why I think I'm up to it.

Adverse Weather conditions, from a pup

I Can Read Maps and Sign Posts 

Tidy up after meself, drink out of a bottle, no need to carry a bowl!  

As you all know, Love Steps of all Shapes and Sizes

Bridge's of all Shapes and Sizes

 Can cope when the Unexpected Happens, no tail down here!

Climbed a number of hills, OK only hills not Mountains!!

The Wrekin

The Stiperstones Twice!!

Lilleshall Monument
 more about this one later in the week

After Steps Rock Climbing is my other favorite pass time 

What do yea say Bertie, Please can I go on your field trip

Pleasesssssssssss, I'll give the midges a miss if you don't mine!!! and promise to leave the beer at home : (

Waiting to hear George xxx 

By the way, a while back on the post "All Change", I said that I'm using google reader, to follow you, I may not comment on all posts but do try and read them. Well over the weeks  thought it funny that some of you had not done any  posts!! so checked, it seams it does not pick up all blogs! it might be something on the setting I need to do, but I've gone back to the dashboard.
Thought I'd just bring it up in case you might be having the same thing happen.

You might have noticed I'm now on Fuzzbook, so if you'd like to get a bit more close and personal with me!!, come be my friend.

See Yea George xxx

Wow George you certainly do qualify for the field trip in my opinion. You've been in some very high places. And you certainly seem to be very brave. Way to go.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

George, I'm sure you are well qualified to go on Bertie's field trip. Maybe even be his assistant if he needs one. I got very distracted by that adorable puppy close-up, though. I didn't know you then, but now I'm going to have to look at some of your first posts. The cuteness overload is overwhelming, but such fun.

I think I miss posts, too, sometimes. I also can't comment on all of them anymore. Just too many. An embarassment of riches, if you will.

lotsa licks, Lola

Taryn said...

George, it definitely looks like you lead a very wonderful and entertaining life! I hope you know how lucky you are!

Unknown said...

Wowser have been to sooooo many fantastical places! I am amazed by your climbing abilities (and your humans too!!)

My momma keeps trying to use da Google reader.....and her must be old fashioned, or a dummy or sumthing. Cuz her just can't get da hang of da Google Reader setups! We keeps going back to da Blogger Reading settings. Maybes someone needs to give a tutorial on using Google Reader for da Blogs!


K9 Katastrophie said...

Heehee! What a lovely smile you have!


Taffy said...

I see no reason for Bertie to turn down that smilin face! I've always thought you were a total cutie but that puppy picture... OMD! There is more cuteness there than my MOm can handle. You shoulda heard the noises she was making. Well, actually its a good thing you didn't cause I woulda been all embarrassed!
I have a horrible time keeping up with blogs anymore and I feel bad about it but, like Lola, it is a good problem to have ;o)

Sam said...

You're a terrier! Aren't you up to any thing at any time!

I think you will be a great adventure dog.

We don't comment all the time, either. I wish I had the time to!

the booker man said...

george, dude, you are a total shoo-in for bertie's field trip! you've got the rugged adventuring on rocks 'n cliffs 'n hills stuff down pat! besides, i'd want you along just for the fact that you can read maps and signs! that's a super duper impressive skill for sures.

the booker man

pee s -- i dig your smilin' picture!!! :)

The Daily Pip said...

Oh George, this may be a journey that I can't join you on - I don't care for climbing stairs, hills, or cliffs. What can I say, my back legs are just not what they used to be. I always enjoy your pictures and OMD were you the most adorable puppy!

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: I am on fuzzbook and will look you up!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Well. If your qualifications don't serve as sufficient reason for admission to Bertie's Field Trip, that last picture will. It's PRICELESS!

Still tail waggin' at Moma's chucklin'

(We SO hope you and we get to climb those North Scotland mountains together ... can't imagine anything much nicer)

♥I am Holly♥ said...

George, great pictures!! I love high rocks to climb. Mom can't hike anymore because she hiked a mountain once a few years ago and got totally lost. The rangers had to come fetch her..thank goodness she had her cell with her! She was very embarrassed! We have been having some problems again on Google. Yesterday it said we were following nobody and then it said we had no account! Strange! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Boo21's Mom said...

Hi George. I thought about you a lot yesterday and today. I"m in viginia, USA returning Bonnie the corgi to her mom. Nearly everywhere I looked there was a "George"--George Washington, that is! But I kept forgetting to take a photo! Maybe tomorrow!

houndstooth said...

Aww! We couldn't go hiking this weekend and we really missed it! Especially after seeing all your great pictures. I think you're more than qualified, George!


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Holy cow Georgie! You could lead the field trip with all your experience! Loved the photographic proof that you are prepared for the trip. What's a midge? A flea or mosquito?? Sorry, we're a little dense.
Smooches from pooches,

verobirdie said...

What a cute pup you have been! And you are just gorgeous now.
Sure, you qualify for the field trip, no doubt of that.

Chewy said...

wow! that is some awesome trip. You do qualify for a field trip!


The Thuglets said...

George we fink your terrierdentials most definately make you a candidate for the field trip!

We fink you should be called you "George the Intrepid Explorer"!

Brillo piccies of you.

WFT Nobby said...

Well done George, I can see that you are AWESOMELY well equipped to join my field trip. Cold weather tolerance, map reading, agility in climbing, apparent familiarity with heather dominated ecosystems I could go on. In fact, Gail and I are so impressed by this post that we have decided, under certain conditions, you are allowed to bring along your own private supplies of your favourite English beers! The conditions are a follows (1) You don't tell any of the other students (2) You bring only the very best quality ale (3) You share generously - but discreetly - with Gail and me and (4) beer drinking is NEVER accompanied by folk dancing. Agreed?
Toodle pip!
PS We are wondering how many pint you had before that last photo was taken.....

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Mi Man Goerge.....YOU ARE SO FUNNY! How do you make that gorgeous smile of yours? :) You just make me howl with laughter dearest one, and WHAT IS A MIDGE??? We American dogs out here do not have the same kind of terrain as you have out there.....I WANT TO GO ON THE FIELD TRIP,but I need to train only takes me on flat leveled streets and I don't know if I can climb a hill, but bridges are my specialty!!! BIG I GOTTA BRING AT LEAST A SIX PACK OF BEER! Have a great day son, Balzac and Anita

Rose H (UK) said...

My dear George, if anyone is experienced enough to go it is you, and with that dazzling smile who could say no? I think the midges'll get to Mom and Dad far more than they will to you speaks the voice of experience!
Lots of love
Auntie Rose xx

Duke said...

Unknown said...

Oh dear George, after knowing those adventures that you've been through, I'm sure you certainly do qualify for the field trip. I think you're actually over-qualified. You can be the guide or the counsellor!!!

My Mind's Eye said...

George...we love the picture of the wee George in the beginning. You my friend are most definitely ready for the Bertie Challenge. You have all the skills needed to make for a purrfect traveling companion. After all you are the only puppy we know who is a Stair master!!!
Happy Trails,
Madi and Mom

You are a terrier. Proudly and courageously!
For the excursion you are over-qualified.

You are am expert!!! I would love to follow you on FB. How do I ask for you??
XO, Bambi & Fern

sprinkles said...

Oh, I just adore those puppy photos, George!!! What a handsome fellow you are.

I'd say you're more than qualified to go on that field trip! Heck, I'd be willing to let you lead the group if I were to tag along!

What is fuzzbook? Facebook?

Asta said...

smoochie kisses

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

George, we bet you are even more qualified than Bertie. surely your application will be at the top of the accepted pile.

We do Google Reader and we have a couple of blogs that have gone private and they don't appear in GR now, and once in a while we notice a couple that don't show up even though we added them. But we just keep adding them over and over and eventually it seems to work.

Eric said...

Course you are qualified George me laddo.You look smashing in all your photos. Mom was squeeeling I thought at you doing such daredevil acts she said no at your too cute cuteness.

Of course I'll be on the field trip. Sort of. I'm hoping to drive the bus as I don't do rain. You can leave your bribery case of beer for Gail and Bertie in the side boot. Be perfectly safe with me laddie.

Wiry wags Eric xx
