Ready for my close-up...

Oh, no... not yet!!!
Okay, this is much better!

Hi, my name is Winston Peabody III.
My girl named me, and I think it's perfect.
So regal, so special, so important.

You see, I was adopted by my family
from the Animal Rescue League in January 2009.
It was the girl who ♥♥♥ me best, I think.
I had some "issues," and still do,
but she is very patient with me 
and takes very good care of me.

The Lady was still grieving the loss 
of her beloved Bichon, Cassie, and really
didn't want to get another dog.
But I'm so happy and thankful that
 The Lady's heart was softened by my plight.

She takes lots of pictures of me,
and I try to be a good model for her.

The Lady thought I would look best on this quilt
which was made by my girl!  Yep, she quilts, too.
The Lady says it's the Yellow Brick Road pattern
by Atkinson Designs.
My girl buys me lots of toys but she let me borrow
"Muffin" today for my photo shoot.
My toys need to go through the washer again.
The Lady thought it best not to use them in the photos.
I had to agree. 

Oh, yeah... the photo shoot.
I almost forgot!

It is for...

are hosting the party.
Lots of cute pictures of critters on quilts
and some lovely art quilts, too.

Winston is lovely and he looks great against a black & white quilt.

Winston reminds me of a dog we owned before Dusty. Her name was Tigger and she bounced across the floor. She did not pay much attention to my quilts- not like our cat Mars does.
Good luck in the voting.
Regards from Western Canada,
