And His Name Is.........

Drum roll please......
 George. We named him George.
We hugged him and squeezed him and called him George. (Anyone know where that saying came from?)


                                                            George is a playful dog.



                                                               A little goofy at times.

                                                                    But, we love him.


                                                         He likes to play with Skeeter.


                                                             They are becoming close.


                                                            Sometimes a little too close.

So until next time,


Small Farm Girl, and George.

We say that all the time! Although we have yet to name anyone "George". That's just "Looney!" hehe

From Wikipedia:
"The final cartoon in the series, Lonesome Lenny, a broad parody of the characters of George and Lenny from the John Steinbeck novel Of Mice and Men, ended with a joking reference to indicate that Screwy (the squirrel) had been crushed by his antagonist, who commented "I used to have a little friend, but he don't move no more."

I remember him saying "I hugged him and loved him and squeezed him." too. The cartoon was from the 40s which is why you don't remember! LOL!!

We say that all the time here! :)

George is very cute and he's gonna be a big boy!

Ah, "Of Mice and Men" yep, remember it well. The saying comes from the cartoon tho, Lennie never called any critter "george". He just kept the in his pocket so he could "pet" them...

Good looking dog sfg! Looks like a keeper!

Cartoons!!! What happened to those classics?

Sheepmom said...

Looney Tunes! They were the best - back when cartoons had class. :-)
I remember the one with the "George' reference though it was already in reruns by the time I saw it.
Great dog name!
