George seemed to be a nice, easy-going individual. Dutiful, loyal and trustworthy. However, he was unable to communicate his true self to those about him. You see, he believed himself to be the real George. That's to say, Saint George: Patron Saint of England, Slayer of Dragons, Rescuer of Damsels in Distress Par Excellence, and ... An All Round Good Egg! The heart of the problem was a simple one. This George was ... a dog!
William P Thomson, simply 'PT' to his friends, once heard from a dear friend about a little dog by the name of George. He had been her companion for sixteen years. The friend's name was Maria. PT said he'd write a small story about the little fellow. That single story became the book you are now holding.As George was real, so too were Butch, Gucci and ZAC, and much loved and cherished by their owners. In the book, many of the characteristics of each are also factual.So, when you next hold and hug your pet, look closer, and you may see the light of magic within them. Love and cherish them, always, as surely they love and cherish you.
