Meet George

George on Sam's Knob, Black Balsam, NC
One thing most of my friends would say about me is that I'm a dog person! So today, I thought I would introduce you to George.

 There has never been a better dog than George! George is my 9 year old airedale terrier.

Snow Day!

In addition to me, George's favorite things are beer (Shiner), chocolate, coffee, ground cummin, and salmon. He doesn't get any of his favorite things except the salmon which comes in his dog food, but he sure will try and get his paws on his other favorite things if given the chance.

Also, this Christmas, George chewed up 2 small boxes from Nieman Marcus. Both boxes contained jewelry and were wrapped. I'm not sure what it was about the boxes, but fortunately he wasn't after the jewelry!
George loves to go for hikes. His favorite is to go to the National Forests where he can run off leash. He never goes too far ahead and he doubles back for me if I get too far behind. He's not fond of swimming unless he feels the need to show off for other dogs!
George likes other dogs, and especially pugs and small bull dogs (not sure about this preference).
Every time I come home from work, George is waiting, when I come through the door, he wags his tail so fast it's a blurr and turns in circles doing his happy dance, happy that mom is home!
