Saturday Steps and............A..........

No walls where hurt in the taking of this photo!!

Yes thats right it my day
 St Georges Day

But do you know who the other St George was, he was the bloke that slayed a Dragon!!
None of your bunny hopping, bird chasing, squirrel bashing a Dragon would you believe!!

Anyways he stands for courage, chivalry, charity
 and for slaying a dragon

Just like this!!

This is the flag of St George which is The England Flag,
 (The real one dosen't have England written on it!! its there for folks that don't know their flags!)
You might see it in other places, 'cus he's not just the patron Saint of England
If you would like to know more about him here's a LINK

So there it is in a nut shell. 

Lets get onto the fun bit.
 You have been sending your photos in with places that have my name on.

Thank you Madi and Mom

Thanks to mom's friend Angela, these were taken in Cardiff

Thank You FG and Downunder Daisy

Thank You Auntie Rose, Second Hand Rose

From my girlfriend Stanize cus I'm her Knight in Shining Armor
Love you loads.......Stanize xxxxx
 You can see her sometimes on Wyatts blog posts

Ok I know I'm no Saint, so here's one with just George on

Mom still won't own up that she got my name from this place, and if you are wondering about the other photos well the next town to us is called,
 yes you guessed it

St Georges 
It was real funny watching mom and dad take those photos, driving around in the car, mom was shouting stop, there's another one and would take a photo out of the car window!!! it looked like we where under cover agents, I'm surprised the police weren't called!!

Happy St Georges Day

Look, I'm out of focus!!
 mom says  she was trying to get the bottle in focus!
"Mom the bottles not in focus"
This is what is says on the bottle

Before I go, most of you think I just set a pose for the camera,
well, true to my terrier characteristics
 I'm no Saint

 So just this once, for your enjoyment here are some out takes!!

I have some announcements

The Big Birthday Bash....Celebration of Life
Is going on at Ronnii's Ramblings I'll see you there later
 Ronnii lost her brother Richie to the bridge on Monday, fun free dear Richie and give Molly Pops my love.

I'd like to wish Andi from Andi's English Attic a Happy Wedding Anniversary she has just got the cutest Welsh Terrier puppy called Elsie. 

If you don't know its also  Shakespeare's Birthday, but more important its my dear blogging friend
Antia's Birthday from
Happy Birthday Antia
Thanks for letting me join the sisterhood on your Birthday.

Plus I nearly forgot its Easter!!!
So a Happy Easter to all of you

Right I'm off to de stuff this Dragon
"What did you say Mom"
"Give it back"
"I have to give it back!!!! You'll have to catch me first"

Till Next Time
See Yea George xxx

I'll be back in the week with this months
Photo Scavenger Hunt

rottrover said...

OOPS!! sorry about that extra 'j' up there...

Pippen said...

We loved your bloopers, George! We were starting to think you were a saint but it's good to know you have the funny photos too!

Sam and Pippen

Bocci said...

Oh George! Love all of the photos, including the out-takes. Yep, you're a true terrier-trying to grab everthing:-)
Our favorites are you with that dragon-adorable!

3 doxies said...

Yea, I was beginning to thinks yu was perfect but it's good to knows you makes mistakes and accidents and blah blah blah.
I loves da out takes...corse, da beer bottle was my favoritist...heheheeh!


Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Happy St. George's Day, George. My Grandpa who I never met was named George. My Moms say he was no saint either, but could be a lot of fun. I have to woof that some of your outtakes are actually very nice pictures in themselves. It sure looks like you know what you'd like to do with the contents of that bottle. I guess it's from hanging out in the pubs. You're a worldly fellow for your age, aren't you? You're still way, way cute, though.

Unknown said...

Happy St George's Day!! Thanks for giving us a history lesson about it.
You really ARE a knight in shining armour, and I loved the way you tackled the dragon with your mighty jaws (something St George definitely didn't have!!!)

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Run George....that dragon is YOURS!!! Make St George proud.

Love all the pictures....especially the one of you with your tongue out looking at the beer.

Hope you get a pork pie and beer and get in some Morris Dancing.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella (& FG)

Zona said...

Okay, those outtakes were PAWSOME! Though some were good enough to be in the final cut if you ask me. Like the one trying to drink the beer and then the "whoa is me" look after you couldn't. So cute!!


FiveSibesMom said...

What terrific and fun photos! Love that dragon - have fun de-stuffing it (that sounds like a lot fun to the FiveSibes!!!) Happy St. George's Day and Happy Easter!

Patrice said...

You made my day, darling! I love the out take photos. SO funny. Regarding the sign and your name- just be glad they didn't name you Walmart. Then you'd be cheap and everywhere.
Happy Easter
Your friend from across the pond,

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Another great post George...... it's nice to know that you do your fair share of "out-takes" too - sometimes my mum panics because there are so many of those....and not many that she wants to use! I say "slay that dragon"!!! Happy Easter to you all, Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I am in the middle of finishing up my post and I assume you are both in bed but I will give it a go....MAY I USE A PHOTO OR TWO FROM THIS POST? I was trying to think how to weave in St. George!!!!

Back later...I have to show my husband. He will chuckle!!!! Anita

sprinkles said...

I love your white teeth, George! I remember you talking once about how you keep them so sparkling, I'll have to read back posts again and find out what you're doing.

Guess what???? My camera is FIXED so you're coming to school with me on Monday again! We're gonna have so much fun together.

Wyatt said...

Anita is always raving about you and George and of course the blog where it all comes to together. I completely agree. This is charming in the extreme. And George is...well like no one else.

Long live St. George de-stuffer of dragons.

Three cheers, a hoot and a rrrrr.


Jon Terry said...

Sally and PAddy

Amber-Mae said...

My hoomie Melissa went to a school named St. George's many years ago! Those are some great pictures & what a nice dragon toy that is. Did you get to taste test that beer?

Kathy said...

What a great post George ... I loved the out takes. I guess your mum has got the 'St George' on the scavenger hunt well sorted!

Adien Crafts said...

Happy St Georges Day! We loved looking at all the photo's and love it that you went on a St George hunt instead of a fluffy Bunny one, much more manly!! Dex & Louis x

Molly the Airedale said...

We love your out takes, George! Happy St. Georges Day and Happy Easter!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

GOOD MORNING ST. GEORGE!!!! was a fun time son, in THE SUN. I saw you did get your paws wet, and so did I. I may not be able to swim, but I sure appreciate the view and what a glorious time it is when you have FRIENDS to make your journey more lovely. Thank you to both of you for always providing us with such joy and laughter. You are the most amazing dog I have ever known George.. (shhhhh.....not too loud; I am in mixed company here with a certain terrier!)


Taryn said...

Great post! I enjoyed seeing all the outtakes, that was fun. The label on that bottle of beer is neat!

Oh, and George, if you have visited for a few days, come check out the dragon in my header photo :-)

Happy Easter!

My Mind's Eye said...

Hi George!!!
What a great post!!! Give the Peeps a well done for all the pictures they found. Mom was watching Entertainment Tonight last night.
They had a segement with Jane Seymour in from the a Pub called The George, in Bath, England,

George you will always be our St. George,
Happy Easter and hugs Madi and Mom

The Daily Pip said...

I am pretty sure you could slay any dragon, my friend! Wonderful pictures. Happy Easter.

Your pal, Pip

Road Dog Tales said...

Happy St. George's Day! This is a wonderfully fun post and we LOVED the outtakes, too! We think you should be the spokesdog for St. George's Glory, especially with your dragon wrangling skills!
And, ACK, again! What are we? Doofuses? Don't know what we were thinking with the Wheaten Terrier. We knew it didn't look like you, but we got our W's all mixed up. We shall remove the bugger poste haste and demand that Gemini Studio create a WELSH Terrier and name him George! :)

Anonymous said...

Hahahahahahaha! Oh George you are something! Happy St. George's Day! You slayed that cute dragon forthwith! I really like the label on your beer. I could drink at least six of them I think ;) How many have you had? Hardy Har Har :P

Loved the out-takes! Who would have known you were such a ham bone ;D

Waggin at ya,

Taryn said...

Thanks for checking out my new header photo! Believe it or not, my boys pose like that all the time, leash free. I take several shots to be sure I have open eyes and pleasant expressions. They seem to "get" the whole posing thing, especially Wilson. Jimmy prefers not to look at the camera but does eventually. I work on sit/stays alot so they get lots of cookies for being good boys. It transfers over to the photo-shoots quite well.

sam said...

George, how wonderful that there is a special day of the year just for you! I came here from the Saturday blog hop and I am sure glad I di!
You are one rocking dog!

violett said...

Hello Gerogre,
those are wonderful photos again. But you have to be careful with the beer. You are not old enough!
We wish you a happy Easter with your loved ones.
You may just find eggs? Or would prefer to hunt dragons?
Lots of love

Scooter said...

Hey George!
Wow, you've got your own whole special day!! You deserve nothing less. These are totally pawesome pix! You're teaching that dragon a lesson fur sure.
Grr and Woof,

Elaine Pritchard said...

Three cheers for George the Lad, St George and Shakespeare......or one each if you are in a hurry to get to Ronnii's party before it finishes.

Thanks for a great blog post. I can't decide if I like you best waving the flag or slaying the dragon. I think I like 'em both equally.

You hang on to that dragon, George.

Love and licks, Winnie

Rose H (UK) said...

I wanted to thank you again for so many happy moments and I see my great friend MILLIE MEADOWSWEET came over to see you. She is a super friend and has a lovely labrador retriever named Peace Lily. I am happy that she got to see that famous George the Lad smile that makes you dear Georgie, THE BEST CANINE EVER!!!! Yes, YES!!! I love my boy, but you take the cake, as we say out here! HAIL TO ST. GEORGE THE DRAGON SLAYER and GEORGE THE LAD THE DRAGON DE-STUFFER!!!!! teeeeeheeee

And I got a fabulous little book on Shakespeare's sonnets with the original English AND paraphrased for us Americans!!!!

Carry on you too.....Anita and Balzac

Sage said...

Yay, George!! I sure hope you got to do a little de-stuffing anyway. Loved all your pictures (especially where you are trying to eat that flag--something I would do!!)

You are incredibly talented!
Have a wonderful day!

What a fun and wonderful post! Happy St. George's Day! :)

Elizabeth Keene said...

Oh, we meant to get at least ONE photo of a local something with "George" upon it; shoot! Nice post - love the outtakes of you and the beer. ;) Oh, we found out that the patron saint of Wales is David (or Dewi in Welsh). We wonder if there's anything in Wales with "Dewi" written on it? Maybe one day we'll come across the pond to find out. :)
Happy Day!
Dewi and Jon Farleigh

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Just coming over to thank you both AGAIN for a magical weekend....Oh how I love this post with the dragon...YOU ARE A KILLER DILLER SAINT, dear GEORGE! Teeeeheeeee

Happy St. George's Day! We're going to have to start celebrating that here in the US, in your honor! You are very brave with your dragon.

Pup Fan said...

Great post I must say. But I can tell you one country for sure where you'll look long and hard before you spot an England flag...
Toodle pip!
PS Oh and I have a bone to pick with you about a comment you made on Uncle Eric's blog. HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST HE REMOVE THE BLUE BIT???!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh, how darn cute you are; I can just see you son, going to the post, posting a letter or a parcel....I bet you wow them at the post office!!!! This was a fun time, wasn't it friend? Everyone loved you. The last comment I got said, "THAT GEORGE STOLE THE SHOW!" Indeed. You are the best and Jan, what a great friend. Blessings to you both out there in lovely England, and I will await your sweet gift with such joy. CARRY ON SLAYING THOSE DRAGONS!!!! Anita and BALZAC!
