Pets On Quilts--2011

SewCalGal is having a Pets on Quilts show!! :)  I hadn't planned on entering, b/c well, have you seen our dog?  But with a little encouragement from a new blog friend, I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

Getting a 150 pound Newfoundland, who still very much acts like a puppy, to sit still on a quilt is quite a chore..  But I did manage to get a couple of photos to post.  

The quilt he is with is one I made for my son to throw on the floor and play on with his hot wheels or whatever.  It was my first experiment with machine quilting and is made up of a few big pieces of transportation themed fabric, with some scraps of railroad track fabric across the bottom. I call it, "Going Places". 

It is kind of our "picnic" quilt, one that I don't mind getting dirty.  Which explains why it had to be the one for Buster.  Buster is one hairy, shedding, slobbering machine!  But oh so sweet.  I am in LOVE with him.  Not just love, "lurrrv". So here are a couple of photos of Buster "going places".

Buster.. LOOK AT MOMMY!!!

Buster, SIT still!!!

Aww, the above two are my favorites.  Anyone for a Newfie kiss?

Are you sure? ha! (The quilt went straight to the washer after taking pics with it.)  :)

I'm looking forward to heading over to Pets on Quilts tomorrow after the entry window closes, and looking at everyone's photos!

What a great idea! Thanks SewCalGal!


Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard!!! Just love the last photo of the 'Kiss' - who couldn't resist? So glad you joined in.

Lynette said...

hehe!! Buster is awesome. He's like a personal Wookie! :D

Joanna said...

Buster did fine. He is very photogenic and looks great in every picture. It sounds like you both had a good time during the photo shoot:)

Karen M said...

He's a Beauty. Probably need a bathing suit and then a hose for the kiss, though!

Staci said...

He's quite a handsome fella!

marina said...

What a lucky boy to gt to go on the quilt.
Will pass on the kiss he he

He is a gorgeous fellow all right. I bet it was a tad tricky getting him to pose. Unlike my two small dog who think ALL quilts are rightfully theirs. Glad you shared.

Eeewww we use to have a red setter that dribbled like that, everyone use to run for cover when she shook her head!!!!! He looks a lovely big softy. xx

QuiltSue said...

Buster is gorgeous and obviously likes modelling your quilts for you.

Thearica said...

OK! Great way to start the day with a chuckle!

Buster is amazing!

jen said...

Love it! The quilt is so colorful and it is the perfect size for Buster! Love the slobber shoestring!

Buster is so beautiful! I think Newfoundlands are so neat and.....big! I scrolled down and saw his baby pictures which were cute!

Buster is just precious! Is he like most big dogs and thinks that he should be a lap dog? Thanks for sharing :)

Jane said...

Buster is a really huge & drooly sort of way!

Anonymous said...

Hi! He is fantastic and so adorable!

hetty said...

Wait until I get my rainwear on and then he can kiss me all he wants! He is adorable!

Oh my gosh, I thought it was a bear at first!! Okay now you have to admit that was a lot of fun. So glad you joined in. I was all for the kiss until I saw that drool!! LOL!!! I bet he is a wonderful companion to have around.

Hi is gorgeous. The big fluffy ones always seem to be gentle giant. I'll take the kiss after he wipes his mouth.

Mary Couch said...

You could write a children's book about Buster. Actually a whole series. "NO Buster" just like "NO, David"! You did read that to your kids, didn't you? Hilarious book, worked perfectly in my first grade classroom!
Hugs from Mary

LOL, what an adorable cutie--slobbers and all!

Lesly said...

Ha ha - got to love a Newf! He's gorgeous!

Oh Newfie's! So sweet even if a little "juicy"!

Cindy said...

Doggy drool, so gross, but still you can't help loving that pretty face!

Haha cute! He needs a quilt to mop up all that drool! Love him!

Kelli your pictures are priceless. Certainly worth washing one quilt. Thanks for sharing.

Buster sure looks like big fun!
