Quilt Dog's End

Oreo Puppy Faust, the world's best quilt dog and my best friend for 14 years died a few weeks ago.  It has been devastatingly hard for me to do anything since.  Quilts aren't interesting, the backyard isn't pretty, I don't want to garden or work with wood.  I don't want another dog.  I don't want a cat, antelope, snake or bunny instead.  He was a happy dog all his life (right up until the very end when he became very sick) and I know I honor his memory best by trying to be happy as well, but I'm just not very good at it without him.

It took me this long just to be able to write this post.  Keep being patient with me.  I'll get my act together.  Now that I'm upstairs, maybe I'll try to piece something.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My heart is broken for you as I have been where you are now. Only time can heal these wounds. Stay busy and remember all the happy times. {hugs}

  2. My heart and prayers go out to you. What a good looking dog she was!

  3. I have also been there and it does take time. Remember him as a puppy, a young adult and a mature adult and think of the good life you had together. Smile even when you don't want to, even with tears in your eyes because he loved life and you. Blessings

  4. I'm so sorry. I know how near and dear the furry ones are to our hearts. I understand your pain. :-(

  5. I still have my 16 year old cat's picture as on my blog and he died four years ago. "Quilt Dog" was not a dog, he was family and he will always be in your heart. You were lucky to have each other. Bless you both.
