Pets on a Quilt Contest



Darlene at SewCalGal blog has been hard at work again with yet another wonderful contest.  This one is Pets on a Quilt, you can enter your pets on a quilt or make a quilt with pets.  So without further ado here are my pets on my quilt. Enjoy.

We have pets, dogs to be exact, we have Maltese and  Pomeranian's. Our dogs are house dogs and they all love to share our bed and our quilts.

These are the Poms, our two adults and two puppies on my quilt. 

Of course the Maltese's needed their time on the quilt as well.

Just getting comfortable


Now for the babies, within the first hours of our puppies life they are laid on a soft scrap quilt of their own.


SOOOOO Soft,
 She kind of reminds me of the "Take me away Calgon commercials"

There is always a quilt to snuggle in

or to line the basket they are carried in, we grow so fast

and when they leave here, there is a scrap quilt made just for that puppy, if they are on hold for a new owner and we have been given their name, I will put it on their very own quilt. These tiny quilts are put in the bed with the puppy and her mother for a few days and then sent to her new home with her with the instructions not to wash the quilt for at least a week.  This way if the puppy gets a little homesick for her Mom and litter mates she has their scent on her quilt to calm her down.  Works every time.  See a quilt even comforts a puppy, this is Mitzi with her quilt the night before she left for her forever home.

New Puppy package

What a cute idea to provide little quilts for the new puppies when they go to their for ever homes.

OMG! I was so blown away by all of your cute dogs that I had to go back to your blog to look at your quilt. Pretty quilt and I love your idea of a 'pacifier' quilt for the new puppies.

Ooops. I know I've popped by several times to admire your entries in the Pets on Quilts Show. I just realize I haven't left a comment. Love your entry. Your kids are so cute and your quilts are too. I particularly enjoyed seeing all the photos from when your four legged children were little. You are such a good pet mommie for keeping them snuggled in beautiful quilts!

Great quilt idea to help with their transition to a forever home. You're never too young to have a quilt all your own!
