George


I wrote limericks for all the PB&J kitties, so now it's George's turn. George is a three-year old Airedale terrier, which means that she is a very high-energy dog. She loves running and jumping and playing hard. This picture was taken when she went to the beach with her Mom and Dad for a very fun day. George is very well-behaved on her leash and is generally a very well-behaved dog all around. She was doing so well at the beach that her Mom and Dad let her off the leash for a little bit. She surprised them. She ran and ran and ran and just as her Mom and Dad were beginning to get a little worried, she turned around and ran back to them. It may seem to be a little odd to see a girl dog named George, but she loves bones so much that she was named after the bone-snatching dog in Bringing up Baby, one of my favorite movies. George was adopted from a breeder as a puppy and remembers when she was the only furry in the house. That didn't last long, as the kitties began to appear. George has always liked the kitties and she was really glad when Bert joined the family, as he likes her back. George likes the sunspots as much as the kitties do and it is not at all unusual to find George and Bert curled up together, napping in the sun. George loves her toys, especially balls. She is very fond of tennis balls, but they don't tend to last long, as she chews them up, or the lawnmower gets them. Her Mom and Dad got her a soccer ball, but she ate the skin off of it. Then they tried a dodgeball, but it popped the first time she bit it. They thought about trying a football, but couldn't find one. Finally they found a girl's size basketball, and that quickly became her favorite toy. She has played with it for two years now. Last winter, she left it in the mud when she was called inside for the night and it snowed. The mud froze to the basketball and poor George had to wait until the weather warmed up enough for the ice in the mud to melt to get her basketball back.

                                    George's favorite toy is her basketball.
                                    She throws it and bats it over all
                                            Her side of the yard.
                                            She plays with it hard.
                                    George really enjoys her basketball.

MOL - George did have to wait forever for her toy, but Mommy told her not to leave it out there! That's why we never take our toys out :-) But we know she's super proud to have her own limerick too - thanks Karen Jo!

George is certainly a fun loving dog. Cuddling with Bert is so sweet. That is a great limerick, it captures her personality very well.
