Saturday Steps Looking Back

You might be thinking, I could have found a better steps photo than this to finsh on, well this is where it all started back on 15th May 2010 on these very steps.
(note Tess is in focus!! and not me,shes getting to be quite a poser to)

Here I am as a pup of just over 5 months,
Since then there has been 84 Saturday Steps.
So close to Frankie's magic number that I'm going to show you some that didn't make it to a blog post  

That makes 87


My Farorite Steps has to be a place that is a local walk to us 

Attingham Park

They where the first steps we took Tess to


Two of my favorite Saturday Steps

My first Birthday
 When you sent in photo's of yourselves on steps.

Mom had to do it in two posts, as blogger didn't like the post being soo long as 55 friends joined me on the day

My Second Birthday that's just passed

Thanks for making it a special day


When I first started it was just a photo on the post but as time went by I added a post to it, the following are some of mom's favorite's

Saturday 31st July 2010

I put up a slide show but it slowed down the blog, so took it off, if you would like to see all 43 photos of the day you can see them on My flickr page Hawkstone Park Steps
Mom also loves this photo of me!!


15th October 2011
Consall Hall Landscape Gardens

Me, Mom and Dad really enjoyed our walk around this place, even though it rained,  I gave it the 4 Paws award and emailed it off to them not thinking we would hear back, but the next day I had a lovely email from the manager thanking me for the award, and that he liked my blog post, so much that it is now on their main web page with a link to my blog and post. 
Thank You Consall Hall
We will be back to show Tess around later this year

29th October 2011

We have become good friends over the last year with Boomer and his Folks, and without him this post would not exist, it was also around this time I realized just what its like having a sister!! 


We could go on as we have so many favorites.
I have put together a smile box with all 84 in the right date order that they appeared on the blog, so if you feel you can sit through 84 steps take a look, perhaps you have a favorite.

Thanks for joining me each Saturday,
 I'll just be posting as and when from now on.

I've not given up on steps, 
if I come across some when out and about
 I'll be on them posing for a photo.

See Yea Soon George xxxx

Ohhh, I am feeling a bit blue, thinking that THINGS CHANGE....but let us not lose you two precious friends. Your new banner is just delightful, your faces are full of love and mischief, the way it should be, and your poses are JUST SO FUNNY!!!! George, Tess and Jan, THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES. I will never, ever forget how you make me feel when I see your new post come up on my blog roll. You mean the world to me and I hope to never lose you three.

Brinley Westie said...

Love all the steps photos.... delightful. Where I live it's kinda flat on the prairie, not many steps around here...

WFT Nobby said...

What a great review of all those steps George. We enjoyed them all enormously and it was great to see them again. Gail and I think about you every time we go up and down steps in interesting places.
We look forward to your future posts, whether or not they feature steps.
Toodle pip!
PS Did you know, Gail actually took me into a pub on the way back to Scotland last week. I'm pestering her to help me post about it but she keeps saying "not now Bertie I'm busy" Do you ever get that?

Pat said...

Lovely retrospective of all your steps, George.
Thank you for doing so many, it must have needed great stamina!
Look forward to your future posts xx

We loved that look back at your Saturday steps especially as we haven't been blogging for a year yet so missed all those early ones. Look forward to seeing other steps you and Tess come across during 2012. We always think of you when we see steps when we're out and about - love from Magic and family xxx

Hi George and Tess! I have missed a couple of your posts, but am sure glad to be back. I love all your Saturday steps. We have a few more steps in our new house and in your honor, I have given them a try a few times, but no luck, still not a big fan of them. Have a great weekend!

Your pal, Pip

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi George and Tess, thanks for sharing your Saturday steps flashback. We have only known you for six months or so and have always loved your steps. Even now when we go out and come across steps they remind us of you.

You have given us what mum loves the most. To see other parts of the world and how beautiful they are. Thanks George, Tess and especially your mum for sharing with us. Take care and see you soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Stanzie just never gets tired of looking at your cute butt, George!
You sure have climbed a lot of steps, no wonder your backside is so muscled.

Cranberry Morning said...

For some odd reason, I am unable to leave comments on your Saturday Steps posts! I think Blogger is playing tricks on us again.

I especially love that photo of George in the library. That is an AMAZING photo, reminiscent of another more famous one. So fun!!
Thanks for commenting on my post today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, y'all!♥

Jon Terry said...
