Pets on Quilts


Ben is 1, and Frisco is 7


These two are difficult to photograph.  They could really care less about cooperating.  My technique was to throw a couple of patchwork quilts on the sofa, and entice them with treats.  I didn't have great results, but decided to share them anyway.

Ben and Frisco are shelter dogs who came to live with us on June 2nd.  They're great guys and we are so lucky to have them in our lives.  Ben is a small terrier mix, 10 lbs., and Frisco is an American Cocker mix, and he weighs 32 lbs.  Ben has a large personality and believes he's in charge, while Frisco is very mellow, which is a good thing because he's incredibly strong.

May your bobbins always be full,
