Don Corleone, Quilt Lover

 Remember this guy?

The dog actually.  Not the guy.  The dog with who was double-heartworm positive and had a mad case of kennel cough, but I fell in love with his stinky self  anyway(as you can tell, it took my husband a little longer).

Don Corleone, who cleaned up quite nicely after we brought him home and had him groomed, was allowed to hang out in my sewing room where he instantly started lounging on fabric.  So I knew he had found his forever home.

And when he moved on from fabric to actual quilts, we just became instant BFF’s.

Don has been with us one week shy of 6 months, and he clearly feels at home.  To celebrate, Nacho Baby and I donated some animal beds to the shelter that we made with my sewing trash.

If you get a kick out of seeing pets on quilts, go check out the show.  It’s for a good cause.

    Danielle, thanks for the info on the Pets on Quilts Show. I THINK I made some progress in entering the photo you suggested I put in the show. I agree with everyone…that Don Corleone is one lucky dog! And how nice of you and Ethan to donate the animal beds…wonderful life lesson for your little one.

    What is Double heartworm? I cannot believe the dog in the first picture which looks brown, is the same grey dog in the next two pictures. What a difference a haircut made!

    Love all of these great rescue stories!!!
