D.I.Y Craft

Denyse Schmidt of Denise Schmidt Quilts saw her first Scottie Dog at the Elephant’s Trunk flea market in New Milford, Connecticut many years ago and fell in love. She’s been collecting vintage patchwork Scottie Dogs (and photographing them when her bed got too full) ever since. Just like old patchwork quilts, no two Scottie Dogs are alike—but they all have personality. We’re not sure where the pattern originated, but, due to the proliferation of patchwork Scotties out there, it probably appeared in a very popular women’s magazine in the 1940’s. And now, you can make your own!more

Eat, Drink, Sleep Flyball

One taste of the wild, competitive sport of flyball and you’re hooked.
Dogs utterly fascinated with balls race off-leash over a 51-foot
course, along the way hurdling four jumps that are 10 feet apart. The
size of the shortest dog on the team determines the jump height for
that entire team. At the end of the course, the dog uses his or her
feet to hit “the box”—a device that fires a tennis ball—then catches
the ball and flies back over the jumps to the finish line. As the first
runner crosses the line, the second dog in the four-dog team takes off.
To make it even more exciting, these dogs are racing alongside another
team of ball-hungry athletic canines. more
