Remember when so many of you were helping me with quilting terms that would make a good dog name? Well, I finally got our little shelter rescued dog and named her 1 of your ideas!

Here is my new little dog, Miss Patchwork Quilt ... called, Patches !

She has patches of whites and browns all over her. She was on death row at a shelter then rescued by a beagle-rescue group. She is a terrier/chihuahua mix; a Terriuahua.

She is already getting me outside into the fresh air and sunshine twice a day and now that we are taking her to obedience classes, it will be even more!

I'll have to have DH take a photo to show you how I quilt with her on my lap and so, once again I am "she who quilts with dogs"!

I thank you again for all your wonderful name ideas.
I could've gone with someone's suggestion of Ears (lol) or the obvious Bandit, but I like the sound of Patches and it does suit her well.



Patches and her happy new Mom, me

OMG! I laughed out loud! I love her. "Perky" doesn't even begin to discribe her! Great pictures.
Can i steal your tag line except change one little word?! :wink:

I've got the camera but it really could be me instead of my SIL! Chai just loves piles of fabric.

By the way,... I thought posting this on chit-chat, but many weeks ago when I was newer, I asked for name ideas on Main and it was allowed, so I thought I should just finish it up here in case none of those members don't look in chit-chat. If the moderator changes it, I don't care, I was just trying to be consistent and let those many many posters know I didn't forget their contributions.

When my current people quilt projects are done, I'll have to make a patchwork quilt for Patches. I'll post that in Pictures.

Oh my what a precious puppy. It makes my heart feel good that you were able to rescue her. She knows this and she will always be grateful to you for it. I know as I have had 5 rescues over the years.

My dog (see avatar) is also named Patches. He came with that name when he adopted us. His dad was a Dalmatian and mom was a ?? I knew he was a keeper with that name! Good luck with your Patches-he's a real cutie.
