    Henry, my avatar, died of a fungal infection in his lungs. I took him to the vet as soon as he showed a sign of illness, but he was dead within the week. When the vet called and told me, I said, "I've always had a hound." He said, "I can fix you up with one."

    He gave me Leila, a registered black and tan coonhound. She had gone on a hunt by herself and gotten hit by a car. Someone found her and took her to the vet. He found her owners who didn't want her back because she was going to have her leg amputated because of nerve damage. The girls (they are girls and not women) in the vet's office and the vet didn't want to put her down. He amputated her leg, spayed her, and gave her to me. She is a real sweetie.

    1) LOVE the piece...it's just too cute! I've always wondered a way to get all our furry friends in one thing :)

    2) You're an awesome person for helping all those little lost souls. I don't live in the country but do the same thing. I just don't understand people & their neglect toward children & animals. I think you should have to get a license to have both!

    Oh, how cute is that!

    Talking about dumped dogs, Mama had dumped cats that she truly loved. Someone dumped a pregnant cat at her driveway. She fed her and she then had two of the prettiest kittens. One with no tail and another with just a stub. The mother cat then got run over by a car. Mama named the kittens: Bunny and Stubby. They went on to have....well you know the story. When Mama went to the nursing home, they were all tame....but not now. But over the last almost 5 years, my DH and I have kept them fed everyday. There's about 7 there now. The health department told me to just quit feeding them, and they would go somewhere else. I just can't do that. Once this past month, the snow kept us away and they came out from everywhere when we did get there to feed them. I just can't let them starve and there's no one in the county to pick them up.

    They are my babies now, I guess until, until the estate is put up for sale in the spring and Medicaid takes it. I hope someone will feed them then. Love my animals.

    Wow, such nice work!!! So glad you also rescue those strays. On Saturday we adopted a stray from the local Humane Society. She is a Pharaoh Hound. We've named her Cleopatra (Cleo) and she's such a dear!!!

    how cute is That! when we lived on the farm, we were deep in the country. It was remarkable how many dogs were let go out there. Our neighbors had four dogs - all left in front of, or near, their house. The way our property sat on the road made it inconvenient for dumping. (although we had three dogs, but all our own.) But, isn't that amazing how folks just drop off their dogs like that? Even little ones! I think people believe that at least the dogs have a Chance, vs taking them to the pound...

    I LOVE that!! I love how you personalized it, I love the color of Henry's eyes in your avatar, and I love how you've adopted the dog's that needed you. We've adopted 2 cats that have been dropped off on our country road- they're the best!

    Just adorable. And I love the open eyes. Have seen it with cats, but never dogs and never with personalization. You did a wonderful job and have immortalized the important "people" in your life.

    Love dogs--have 4 of them but it takes 3 (under 10 lbs ea) to make 1 good-sized dog. Quilt is unique and a treasure.
