This is Sami, better known as Sami The Wonder Dog. She is my Quilting Assistant (meaning she grabs every block or scrap I drop on the floor and adds it to her stash under the table), Inspector, (she can spot an untrimmed thread from across the room), and Watch Dog (that does not bark). I think she has joined the Dog Workers Union because she insists on having a potty break every hour, to include fresh ice in her bowl and a treat. Now she is branching out and is entered into the Pets on Quilts contest at Lily Pad Quilting. Please visit Lily Pad and vote for Sami. I know she will appreciate it, but I don’t know if I will be able to afford the increase in pay she will demand.
Please vote for Sami. She is #15.
We have a family of rabbits turning our back yard into a rabbit sanctuary. Sami has a hard time with sharing anything, but especially her back yard. That is part of her domain, along with the whole house and the car. When we go outside for a potty break I go out first and do a rabbit patrol to make sure they scatter before Sami decides they need exercise and chases them.
She is pretty patient with them as long as she is just looking down on them from her upstairs bedroom but she goes on meltdown when she thinks they might get too close to her sunning chair.
I picked this old chair up at a yard sale for $8 and replaced the webbing with fabric. I also made a cute cushion from outdoor fabric but Sami refuses to sit on the chair with the cushion, so away it goes. Can you tell she is the queen?
Sometimes the rabbits play under the chair and Sami has what us Southerners call a ‘hissy fit’. I go out and relocate them to another part of the yard and all is well in Sami Land again.
Just to let you know that I am not the only Sami Slave, my friend makes me walk to the street from my cul de sac when she picks me up for a lunch date– so she doesn’t have to see Sami’s sad face in the window. 🙂
When I leave this earthly world I want to come back as a pampered pet.
