A Dog Who Loves Quilts

Pets on Quilts

Well, now that I figured out how to get the link on here I think I'm doing well.  I have a dog that LOVES to be on quilts, and since that is a category for this linky party, I just knew I had the perfect friend to enter.


This is Benny.  He is an 8 pound Yorkie Poo and he is going to be 6 years old next Tuesday.


Benny is a sweet dog who loves to cuddle up with anyone who has a blankie, be it an afghan or a quilt, he is right there to snuggle.


Every night when I try to photograph my block for the day he is ready to have his picture taken on the block no matter what size it is.  He can make a 6-inch block look tiny...


and an 18-inch block look huge.  I don't take his picture every night, but sometimes I just cannot resist.


Benny also likes to help sort thread, course laying on the thread doesn't really help, but I know he thinks he is really making the job easier.


Benny has his own quilt and afghan in his napping spot (which is even a nice place to be in his Halloween costume).


But there is just nothing like a nap on a doll-sized quilt.  Life and quilts sure would be boring without Benny.  Make sure you click on the link above to check out the other pets on quilts.  You will be able to vote for the cutest pet/quilt ever...or you can enter your furry friend.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Well now there is a dog who is serious about his "job".....he knows you can't possibly get the job done right without him! And an early "Happy Birthday" Bennie Boy!

awwww...Benny's such a cutie pie! He reminds me of our first pup..she was made for the camera, like your Benny. She'd pose this way and that...it was the days before digital...at times I'd pull out the camera without any film...and pretend to take her picture because she loved it so! LOL
