She recently learned that she could go down the stairs to the basement with me, so loves to sleep on her bed while I am sewing. I watch carefully for pins on the floor. She occasionally will put her head in my lap looking for a little love while I am sewing, but now knows that when I say "Excuse me" it is time for her to go lay down. It doesn't matter how cute they are, they need rules, and really shouldn't be in the sewing room at all, for their own safety.
    well said... we have to teach them rules, rules are to be followed & who the alpha is. i currently have a german wire haired pointer as my canine companion. he loves our quiet time when i am sewing, quilting or reading. and he too will occassionally lay his head in my lap for loves or to beg a game of kickball. but it has been a long time getting this rambunctious character to accept the rules. he was dumped on our rural property two yrs ago, & is finally becoming a nice companion.


    oh ..his exploits first year were legendary. earned him the title Psycho Pup from a dear friend of mine! )

    Really cute puppy, but if it were mine, it would be eating budget food for a week and no treats! Lol! Sorry about the thread, I know what that costs!

    Thank you Billie, you are so right. Yes, this 2 year old energetic bundle of energy was rescued from a very unhealthy situation being coop up in a cage for too many hours in a day. Also he lost his best friend over a month ago named Teddi. I miss Teddi, he was a 125 lb golden retriever that only wanted to sit in your lap and be loved. So please don't judge my friend. She is very carefully with this over energetic bundle of energy. My Westie, Mac who departed this world in 2002, one time pull my F&P book off the bookcase and chewed the back cover. Yes, they are like children but ANYONE who has had a pet has had at least one incident that something unimaginable occurred.

    Thanks Joellyn for your kind words of support. You are right about Bella, she is a hyper little dog but is learning her manners quite well and I expect incidents with puppies while they are learning boundaries . She does miss Teddi very much as do I, he was a wonderful dog.

    He is just too cute and a great judge of colors.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Yikes! I'd probably be fool enough to try to rewind it. :-) It looks though, like there is little chance for recovery. I'm so sorry - the things we put up with from our beloved pets.

    I have one that loves fabric scraps. She steals them out of the sewing room and just lays her little head on them. Your little dog is adorable, so how can you stay mad?

    Very judgmental! It's one thing to pass on helpful words of caution, but this was something else.

    My 80 lb Basset got some of my silk thread once. I left it on the end table after doing some hand work and, like feffertim, didn't think he'd be interested in it. Wrong! Luckily, he rarely ingests anything but loved to find things to chew. We rescued him and we had a LOT of behaviors to work through. He's a new dog now, almost 2 years later.

    What a cute little dog! My dog also got ahold of my Aurifil thread but fortunately it was only one spool and the cat knocked it off the sewing table for her. They seem to work in tandem.

    Has anyone tasted Aurifil? It might just be tasty! Glad to hear a few of you have managed to tame your puppies after a couple years, mine loves my furniture, boots, crocs, window seals. I've even sprinkled Cayenne powder on the crocs, it didn't deter him at all. Guilt is only in the eye of the beholder...I can never catch him at it

    LOL . . .about the same day this thread posted, one of my two Havanese got a hold of a spool of 2310 that was shoved off my cabinet while I was FMQ. Found it on the living room floor chewed to bits and thread everywhere. What is it about this thread??? Neither of my dogs are in the habit of randomly chewing on something they find.

    on the bright side . . .it's a good excuse to order more
