Hi Fellow Quilters,
Spring is here, and it is time to get outside and play again! Rowdy, our Australian shepherd, loves to go for walks and play outside. When we go to the park, he likes to play ball (or stick if we forgot to bring the ball). If there is a squirrel, Rowdy makes sure that it gets plenty of exercise as it runs for cover in a nearby tree. If we’re lucky, we meet up with Rowdy’s friends Lucy (the border collie) or Hector (the golden retriever) and take some time to play together. Rowdy always checks his messages on the trees around the park as we continue on our walk. Isn’t he handsome as he patiently awaits his next outing!
But what if a dog could do the things that people like to do at the park? That’s the idea that sparked our “Puppy Park” quilt pattern, and today I’m going to introduce you to our cute puppy boys! Each of these little guys is actively pursuing fun, at the park. Enjoy!
Bicycling is great fun, but always wear your helmet! This Great Dane or boxer is pedaling down the path, enjoying the breeze on this warm, sunny day.
It is such fun to play with balloons! This little spaniel puppy is going to a birthday party at the park. He hopes that there will be LOTS of puppy treats to eat!
Let’s go fly a kite! Run fast so it will fly high! Does this chow puppy know that he should look out for kite-eating trees?
The English bulldog puppy is getting really good at riding on his skateboard! Maybe he will show you the new trick that he learned today. Safety first- always wear your helmet and pads!
Let’s play ball! The Labrador puppy will fetch the ball, again and again and again. Would you mind throwing the ball please? My arm is very tired.
“Ooo la la!” This pretty French poodle is dressed up in her latest super-chic fashionable dress and pumps. She’s strolling in the park with her new baby. Isn’t he adorable!
Our beautiful little girl American Staffordshire terrier thinks that he’s SO cute! So she packed a basket with his favorite snacks and invited him to sit down and enjoy a picnic lunch at the park! “How about a little kiss?” He’s just not sure about this.
How’s the water today? This brave chihuahua puppy is ready to jump right in! I hope that it isn’t too cold; the pool hasn’t been open for more than a few days.
This Husky (or maybe a malamute?) was born to run. What a great way to get a workout with some fresh air! Do you think that you could catch him? I’m pretty sure that I can’t!
Well, skating didn’t look so difficult, until he tried it himself! The little dachshund puppy is standing up on the skates, but it will be a while before he can go as fast as his Dad can go. Good thing that he’s wearing his safety gear- he really doesn’t look steady yet.
The cattledog puppy just loves his new flying disc! Please throw it for him again. He might bring it back to you. Or he might just stand guard near it, while he waits for you to come and pick it up again.
The maltese (or maybe pomeranian) puppy loves to jump! Jumping is fun! Jumping is great! Jumping makes me SO tired. Is it time to go and take another lap nap yet?
The English bull terrier has met a new friend at the park. Stand very still please! You don’t want to frighten your new best buddy.
