    I love reading everyone's posts and have noticed that lots of quilters are using their dogs as their avatars. How many dogs do you have and where are they when you quilt? I belong to a rescue group for Australian Cattle dogs and have 2 sweeties. One of mine is always at my feet when I quilt or when I am on the computer, to the point where I am tripping over him. But I'd miss him if her were anywhere else.

    I have two border collies (one is a rescue) and they are always trying to help me quilt or trying to get up in my lap.

    I have 3 "kids". 2 Basset Hounds, Bobb & Bogie and a Border Terrier, Phredd. At least one of the boys is always by me in the sewing room. All 3 like to "help".

    I have a german shepherd. Phisher. (My son named him after the band, Phish.) He's over 14-years-old now; long-lived for a GSD. He has cataracts, and is deaf; but, his hips are good. He is sweet natured, with a big bark - i.e., the perfect protector. Although, his deafness no longer allows him to hear door bells, voices, etc... He sleeps a lot, so people can come and go and he doesn't stir. lol... He is, and has always been, my shadow.

    We have a black Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie) who is 'adopted'. He thinks he owns the house and watches me sew - from a distance.

    I have a toy fox terrier and a schnauzer/wire dachsund/miniature pinscher mix. My toy fox terrier has a blankie on my sewing table where he sits and looks out the window while I sew, My other dog prefers to lie in the basket of fabric waiting to be ironed!

    We have 3 girls, the oldest is a black Lab named Molly, she just showed up on our doorstep, then we have Dueces, she's a Poodle mix, we got her from a neighbor the weekend we got home from Vegas (can u guess my favorite game) and the newest is Sara, she is an Akita, she belonged to my son's family and when they seperated, my grandson called and said " Please grandma don't let them give Sara away. So I ended up with a 3rd dog who also just happened to be pregnant (had 7 puppies, found good homes for all)

    Good Morning! i have 2 rescues..one JRT (Gizmo) who is about 12, and a JRT/Beagle (Chula) who is 5, and a witch! She pounces on him all the time, he wishes he was back to being an only child.
    (our Rotty,Babe was a rescue also, got her the same time i got Gizmo,when they were puppies, but she passed at 7)

    We have 2 rescue dogs, English Springer spaniels adopted through Mid-Atlantic Springer Spaniel Rescue (www.maessr.org).

    They like to be outside, playing in the yard. They have spurts of energy between hours of laziness.

    They're usually on the sofa, sound asleep, most of the day. But as soon as I lay blocks on the rugs to check color or placement, they are right there. I guess they are the quality control crew, testing out the new quilts.

    Right now we have 2 dogs, a smooth coat chow, Che, and a pit bull/chow, Ruby. There's not room for them in my sewing room though although I'm sure they wished there was.

    I have 2 beautiful pit bull babies. They are both a little over 70 lbs...and are typically sleeping on the couch while I'm quilting. Diamond, our oldest, is 4 and she likes to lay on the bottom of the quilt while it's in the frame (A HUGE NO NO), and Blade, our 1 yr old spoiled rotten brat likes to lay across my lap, under the quilt...he loves covers.

    Blade...yes that's his walking leash, as he broke 3 nylon ones before we got smart and bought metal chain...lol

    We have 4 dogs living at our house now. Two are my daughter's that we've been watching until she gets her floors redone. The younger ones get into mischief, but my two old dogs love to curl up at my feet when I'm sewing and of course they appreciate a good quilt.

    I have two! They are always in the room with me, unless the weather is nice enough to leave the door open--then they are out in the backyard with frequent trips inside to check in with me! Love everyone's dog pics.

    Two dogs, Chico a Min Pin/Chihuahua and Blackie a Schnauzer/Poodle. They have a special blanket in my sewing room, tucked out of the way. They can see me but not get stepped on.
    Plus two cats, both black, Lucy Fur and Lincoln. I've given up keeping them off whatever I'm working on. I store projects in big Ziploc bags when I'm not working, to keep the fur to a minimum.
    I tell everyone that my life is covered with Lucy...Fur!

    We lost one cat, Fuzz Butt, earlier this year to old age. She was my counter weight and would hold down quilts while I sandwiched or pinned them.

    Too many pictures to post but you can see them here...

    Your photo of your beautiful dogs on your quilt blocks made me laugh...my two always have to walk on or sit on my blocks when lay them out. I think it's "Pay attention to me, not to your old sewing!" Love the scrap quilt, BTW.

    My two spoiled, rotten Airedales are a big part of our lives. Ruby is nine and came from a backyard breeder and Sam will be four in January and he came from Airedale Rescue. You can read about them here.

    Our UPS man is dog friendly. He brings biscuits when he brings the package to the door. If we are not home, he leaves the package with two biscuits on top of it on the porch. This morning while walking my dogs, he passed us and slowed down and tossed two dog biscuits to us. I like dog friendly people.

    my UPS guy is ok with the dogs, but our Fed Ex guy is very scared of my Lab, we have a circle drive and he drives thru and never gets out of the truck he sets it out the truck and leaves lol, we only left her out front once but I guess that was enough

    Tink is my very spoiled Chihuahua. My little shadow...She has a bed next to my machine, but if it is storming or she is afraid of something, she is under my feet or sitting on the foot controller.
