Madison T. Dog here. Mom’s been procrastinating, so I thought I’d take things into my own paws until she’s ready to blog again. Please bring your furry friends over to the computer as this post is for them. (You can read it too.)
The photos below are of all the dogs and cats who helped raise money for Alzheimer’s research for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative while all the people were at the International Quilt Festival in Houston last year. Remember my Great Idea?
Arlo has his head in a hole in the backyard looking for coins he planted there last spring, Gray Souffle has her head under the mattress looking for mad money, and Jackie is resting after going through her Mom’s purse.
Here are the rest of the pictures you sent in. I nearly lost my dew claw sizing these things to fit all together. I had no idea Photo-Shop was so canine-NOT-friendly. I think I could make a patchwork quilt now!
I couldn’t be any more proud of you all for sniffing out donations for the AAQI and getting your people to send them in. I thank you from the tip of my extraordinarily beautiful tail all the way to my wet nose for your help. Please tell each and every one of your people how special they are. If they were nearby and sitting in a chair with their legs crossed, I would very gently put my fore-paw around their ankle like I was shaking their hand. It’s the best that I can do because Mom says I’m not allowed to jump on people, put my paws on their shoulders and plant a big wet one on their mouth.
I’m going to go put my cold nose under Mom’s armpit as a sign of my deep affection for her and as a little thank-you for her letting me blog today, and them I’m going to go take a nap.
