    What a great story! This made me cry. I'd never thought about the dogs having problems, but can see why it would happen. Thanks to you and your mom for making 2 beautiful quilts for a wonderful cause. Great job by both of you.

    Jan that is so cool! Love the dog quilt!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    God bless you, everyone envolved in making the quilts, Josh and Kate. You are all angels on earth.

    II am just one of the many who helped with your last donation of quilts to Afghanistan. I made a food quilt with hamburger, fries, pizza etc. It was a very rewarding experience. Thank you once again for all your efforts!

    Not your typical "quilter's day" story. Thank you for your caring and generous spirit.

    Jan, I always like reading your comments and seeing how you help other quilters on this Board. You did a fantastic job on the quilts and I do believe in "What goes around, comes around." You have been blessed by the reactions of Josh and Kate, and you will have many more blessings come your way. Thank you for this awesome, inspiring work.

    Jan, Thank you and everyone involved. What an inspiration to the rest of us. I've been reading the posts for a few weeks and finally found one to which I HAD to respond.
