Bullvye


I love my pets! I am blessed to have 3 cats, Zoe, Maggie and Annabelle and a delightful yellow lab, Bullvye.
Bullvye is supposed to be my husband’s dog, but he and I have formed a strong bond between us and I claim him as all mine. We call him our poor white trash dog. Let’s just say that he didn’t come from great breeding. We thought we could make up for this with a strong name. My husband and kids love the movie “The 13th Warrior”. In the movie, Bullvye is the leader of the Vikings. Well he doesn’t quite live up to the name. But I love him regardless! It is so easy to overlook the flaws in a pet and to end up loving them for those flaws.

I feel the need to make a record of Bullvye in our lives. I am sure he will turn up in a quilt someday. In the meantime I am hooking a rug with him front and center. It is slow going but I know I will finish it. He is my faithful friend and companion and worthy of any legacy I can give him!

Bullvye looks like a great companion! JR is mine -- it is unbelievable how much we are on the same wavelength! Pita -- he's an Austrialian Blue Heeler and he's DH's dog -- he had a rough start to life before we took him in, so I guess that should excuse some of him! LOL

Bullvye is a sweetie! He doesn't look like he comes from the wrong side of the tracks to me.....:c)

I'm interested in wool rug hooking as well. Do you have all the supplies, frame and all? I recently started my stash, preferring to go the "reclaimed" way but don't have a stripper yet. Any advice?

What a big sweetie pie. So he's a Pooh too? Love the rug you've started - would love to see occasional shots of it in progress. Glad you enjoyed the retreat - whee quilting time.

Awww...what a cutie he is! I have to ask though, seeing as I've talked about my dh's lab before on my blog....is Bullyve dumber than a pile of rocks??? LOL! I don't mean that to be mean...cuz I LOVE Rocky (he's a chocolate lab)...but the dog is just.....well, dumb. :oP He's so happy though that you gotta love the guy.

Love the rug! One of these days.....
