    But how do you know that by giving the quilt to his fur baby wasn't a sign of how much he loves the quilt. Maybe his dog is like a special family member to him. For some people they aren't animals they are their children so it might really be an honor for it to go to the dog. JMHO I wouldn't give it to my dog but I know some people that would.

    Dogs, like cats, looooove quilts. Mine just can't keep away from them.

    I love it, My German shepherd loves getting a quilt from me. She usually gets the one I just can't get right. I also have to say that she hasn't gotten one lately, I must be doing something right.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    i have found that often quilts live many lives...i've made quilts that have been used to cover wood piles, furniture in the back of trucks, dog crates, kids in the backseat,spread out at the beach for a picnic and even eventually put on a bed...all the same quilt! i guess i would rather it be used for something than stuffed in a box under the bed never to be seen or used....and i don't scratch recipients off my list for using my quilts in what ever way they find it useful at the moment- i take note & make them as durable/washable/functional as i possibly can in the future- but i also do repairs if one is brought back to me because the dog chewed it, or the child caught it in a door, or it was torn on a nail...i do put alot of money into my quilts- but that is my choice & i know that when they are given they are loved...and used...and they know- if they wear it out i will make them a new one---if it's hidden in a box never used good chance they will never get a new one!

    Our 3 Goldens lay all over my quilts, and they love it. I don't mind if they get dirty, it's off to the washer then. I would rather have a dog using a quilt than some people. LOL.

    The point is, you put your blood, sweat and sometimes tears and always expectations of the recipient knowing how much you cared to go to all this work just for them. If they are too dense to realize this, then further offerings are of no use to either party.

    Grin and Bear it. The dog is part of the their family. You gave the quilt to them, and they shared it with the member of the family that needed it. The other side of the coin, just give them quilts or whatever that are made from scraps. Then you will not have a lot of money and time in the quilt. Besides they may just love this one and keep it on the bed.

    Just watched an Eleanor Burns program yesterday and guess what she did.....made two quilts for her granddogs! She even featured the two lucky furkids at the end of the program and their tails were a-waggin' My first utility quilt is now used by Emma, our Scottie, to protect a chair that she has claimed. It's still being used by a loved one, so I'm happy.

    Since I know how much people love their dog, I could probably learn to accept that. However..........I made a beautiful baby quilt for someone and they NEVER so much as thanked me for it or even acknowledged it being recieved. I know they got it from a mutual friend. Clearly THEY are off the list!
