This blankie is dog approved

No. 1 says that there’s only one thing that I don’t understand.

I'm checking out this nice blankie.

I'm checking out this nice blankie.

She puts her hands on her hips, looks at me, and says, “You cannot lie on a quilt while I’m quilting it.”

Why not? I’m just doing my job. I am the Quilt Puppy after all. It is my solemn duty to check out each and every blankie, to make sure that it holds all the properties that a dog desires. This is a very nice one, very comfy, and from here I can supervise your activities closely.

“What am I going to do with you?” she asks.

Nobody here but us teapots.

Paws up Toby! Yes, I can jump very high. I have a lot of spring in my legs. I jump up on the chair and then whump, right up onto the table! From there I can get to the windowsill to watch over the neighborhood, or supervisor No. 1 while she’s sewing. It’s part of my sworn duty.

Willie, my Misty is a jumper as well. She is just like you, she likes to make a bed in my quilts.

Hello Willie – I’m Patrick, a quilt inspector at my pet’s place. I am also a cat – hopefully you don’t have an aversion to us as I do not towards “your kind”. I believe it is our solemn duty to inspect these creations our pets make. My assistant Velcro and I continually assist our pet, especially when the quilt is in the frame for hand quilting. Keep us the good work!

not us – “up”. Sorry about that. My pet got in the way and I accidentally hit the submit button.

Gosh, he must be related to my cat, Blackee. This is her favorite way to relax, too!

Paws up Patrick and Assistant Velcro! As you may know I have Klingons of my own and I have no aversion to them (as long as they keep their claws to themselves). Glad to hear you are filling in on the duties in the sewing room. Good work.

Paws up Blackee! Once you have done your approval duty it is good to relax on the blankie. Be sure to spread as much hair on it as possible. This gives it a nice patina.

Hi, Willie, I like your technique for non-quilting and you get kisses, too. Mine, my name is Amy, a small beautiful Corgi mix; think of Ann-Margaret, and you’ll know what I look like, is to get anywhere on or under the quilt whilst it is being non-quilted on-the-big floor hoop or in my mom, Cheryl’s, lap. Or else, when I’m really lucky, I get into the newly-arrived-home suitcase and curl up amongst the fat quarters and fabric that have come home from far-away places. There are also some hard-ish things with them called books, written by your Mom. Isn’t it a tough life, with kisses, too. Nice meetin’ you, Amy

Paws up Amy! Your techniques are good. It’s an excellent idea to check out the new fabrics before they’ve even gone into the blankies. And No. 1 says biscuits for Cheryl!!!
