Pet's on Quilts - Deogie the Back Seat Driver

This is the last day for the Pets on Quilts Show and I want to share my (almost) famous dog with you.

Deogie

Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks'
entry for

Pets on Quilts Show 2014!!

 Dog on a quilt category.
A great big thank you to Lily Pad Quilting!

This is Dogie.
She has been in our family for almost 15 years.
She was adopted when she was just a little handful and came from the pound.
Deogie is half black lab and half blue heeler which makes her a very smart dog as you shall see....


Deogie worked with my husband as a plumber for the first 10 years of her life.
Everyday she would jump in the truck and ride with him all day.
In fact, in her early years, we had trouble keeping her out of vehicles.
That is all she wanted to do, ride - or just sit in the car.
We had to lock the cars to keep her out of them.
She may have scratched a few car doors in her hay day....oops

One day my husband wanted to show how she let her self in the truck (no one would believe us).
One thing she hates is the smoke detector sound, so he made it go off at my in laws' house and recorded what she did...


This video was 6 1/2 years ago (almost 6000 views) and Deogie is retired from plumbing now.
She has gone with us everywhere for the last 15 years.
We very seldom leave her at home when we travel.
Some people recognize her and know her name without remembering our names.
She is a well behaved and smart dog.


She's a little grey now and very seldom leaves her bed, unless someone says,
" Let's GO."
She is always willing to ride in the car, but now it's in the back seat and she has to be lifted in.



Deogie isn't really a dog to pose for pictures, so I did what I knew would work and said,
"Let's GO!"

Her sister, Molly, understands what that means too.  She, unlike Deogie, will strike a pose anytime.
I prepared the backseat with the quilt, Peace and Harmony and they snuggled right in.


After a car ride, Molly is ready to pose for you....

Thanks for stopping by to see my girl (s).

Be sure and visit all the cute critters on quilts.


I have  a quilt made just for Deogie that I will share in the See You In September Blog hop so stay tuned...

Wow, even the non animal lover was impressed with your story. Very smart dog. Thanks for sharing!

Sandra Walker said...

OMG!!!! I have never seen a dog OPEN a truck door??!!! What a smart girl, and wonderful to hear and see what a wonderful long life she is leading. Kinda chokes me up. Our former neighbours in Alberta had a dog with the same name! They had to explain it to everyone though, as the accent is on the "oh" syllable. I'll be sharing your post with my family and friends to see that video and read about her!
The quilt looks gorgeous too btw!

Loris said...

What a fun story! Doggie is a cherished sweetheart! Love to Doggie and Molly!

As Sandra Walker's (comment above) sister, I must comment to prove she DID share this with her family :). Aw, choked ME up too. What a beautiful angel you have in your midst (Molly is adorable too!)

Lana said...

Not only is that cute, it is amazing! We have a lab that is close to 15 yrs old...and he is the same way! He loves to GO and hang his head out of the truck window...especially at the ranch..we just have to pick him up now...
I can't wait to see your projects!
See you in September!

Your girls are beautiful. A little gray is classy. Loved the video - I would never had believe a dog could open the door without seeing it.
