We Interrupt this Quilting Blog.....

 I had big plans to get a lot of projects worked on my quilting studio yesterday. Not much happened quilty yesterday except a little hand quilting in the evening.
As many of you may know, we have a business in our town. A farmer was driving into town today and came across two pups that had been dumped in a ditch out in the country. He caught this little girl but another one had ran away.
 She was just a pup and shook all morning. I entertained her in the office.
 I posted a few photos on Facebook and instagram trying to find her a home.
I took her for a car ride. 

I took her to see my mom. 

 I let her nap in my jacket.
She liked that the best.

 I left her with my husband when I had errands to do. She was comfy there too.
 And then her brother showed up. He was bouncing off the walls!
 I posted a photo of him too, looking for a forever home.
 They were reunited and went crazy!
Then they napped.
 We played outside, hoping someone would contact me about wanting a pup in their home.
 Jump, Jump, Jump.
 Jump, Jump. Jump some more!

They were super hungry too. I gave them small amounts of food throughout the day. They both gobbled it so fast.

I'm not sure if this video will work, but its a short clip of how happy they were playing outside.

Before our no-kill shelter closed for the night I said goodbye and handed them over.  They will be spay/neuter, micro-chipped, vaccinated, have 30 days pet health insurance, a free vet visit, and have a personalized ID tag. They didn't think they would have any problem finding a home for them. (she called them cha-weiners, I think. Chiwauwau and wiener dog mix) 

So, that was my day in a nut shell. I'm hoping for some quilting time today.

Have a fantastic weekend.

  1. I thought the end of your story would be that they went home with you! But hopefully, they will find their forever home soon. Looks like though, you had a fun, busy, snuggley kind of a day.

  3. Oh Lori, My heart skipped a beat when the photo of the black one appeared. My daughter has two rescue dogs and Jasper looks exactly like your little black pup. They were never sure of his lineage, but her vet suggested Chihuahua - Dachshund mix as well. I'm afraid if I lived on the west coast they would both come home with me!

  6. How cute. You were definitely their guardian angel. I wish people wouldn't dump dogs. That is NOT the humane thing to do.
