Checkers & Chocolate Lolipop

Here is my entry for the Pets on Quilts Parade that SewCalGal is hosting. Be sure to check it out and get your entry in soon! Lots of very generous sponsors!

This is Checkers. She is sitting on what is left of a beautiful quilt I made from the Chocolate Lolipop line of fabric. At one time it was much larger, until Checkers decided to chew off a large chunk of one of the corners. I guess even dogs cant resist yummy chocolate:) I was pretty miffed for a while but ultimately forgave her. I made her this little doggie bed out of what was left in hopes she would be happy with her own little quilt and quit chewing on mine!

  1. Lovely little doggie bed! I know it isn't funny when a dog destroys something, but your post made me smile! I love the colours of that fabric! Hey! It looks good enough to eat to me too!

  2. Sherry Rose,

    Thanks for sharing cute Checkers and his yummy chocolate bed with everyone on Facebook and via my blog's Pets on Quilt Show. Just delightful. And I love the insights on Checkers trying to eat his bed. LOL!

  13. Your little dog Checkers is stunning! I've always liked pin-mins and Checkers is probably quite a live wire to have around. Lucky you. The quilt is beautiful too!

  20. Anyone would love that bed. The colors are so upbeat...why would Checkers ever get off?

  21. Love your fabric! The dog bed is super cute, too bad about the full size quilt - hopefully your plan works to save the rest of your creations!
