George and a pioneering spirit

Today George and I took a path we'd walked many times before - but we went in the opposite direction.

Now George has many admirable qualities but a pioneering spirit? No. he walked behind me.

I said, 'You should be leading the way, forging a trail.'
'It's okay; I'm happy following you.'
'What if there are injuns up ahead and they attack me with their bows and arrows?'
'Then I need to be behind you so I can go and get help.'
'Do you know your way out of the woods?'
George paused and had a little think. 'Alternatively, I'll sit by your bleeding body and howl.'
'That's kind of you.'
'I thought so. Does it deserve a treat?' He looked at me, his head on a tilt, his eyes big and brown.

Be glad he follows instead of leads, it means he knows who is boss! ;-)

Of course, to a dog EVERYTHING deserves a treat! Especially to my dog. And she usually gets one because she is so very spoiled.

Devotion definitely needs a treat!!

I think that treat would have made sure he protected you even if he was following you!

CherryPie said...

Besides, he was making sure no-one attacked you from behind!

He walked behind you to save you tripping up over him.

Ah, give him the treat! Full marks for being honest.

Liz you don't sprechen Sie Deutsch, do you? I desperately need as many people as possible to correct my German... I thought you might be a language teacher like Welshcakes. Well you DO come from Wales too, y'know...

My goodness, you and George do have lovely little walkies chats! :D

George walks behind you?? I wish Sophie would learn that trick. Today I tried to get her out of a muddy field, but she thought we were playing tag and kept running off. No treats for her, either!

Definitely believe that which you stated.
Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
