    I'm so sorry to hear your poor mutt is going to be put down. My heart goes out to you. My dog was put to sleep in Feb and I'm still so so sad. I'll be thinking of you.

    Well, us country girls would have said first..'don't freak':))Which is hard when something is a cherished quilt like that. What I would have suggested is rinsing good w/a hose outside, then roll it back into a clothes basket because of the wet weight. Then I would have tossed it into the bathtub w/detergent and soaked it for 24hrs...you would have been surprised how great it would look by then. If there would be any stains left or marks...you gently scrub fabric to clean...then rinse, rinse, rinse. I would then tell you to hang it outside on the line...rinse w/the hose. The sun would kill anything bacteria wise on it...I know this might rock the world for some over this...but it is 'country wise' where we have barn fulls of that 'stuff' and plenty of mud.............:))Skeat

    When you wash a quilt, do you only wash the top layer? I personally wash the whole thing and when I am finished, there are no bacteria rapidly spreading through anything.

    As for the dog? Have y'all thought about a crate for the poor thing?

    I hate dogs on the bed and this is a humane solution.
