The Edge of a Quilt Works for a Nap

My male human started quilting last year (see Terry the Quilting Husband on the tierneycreates blog).

I was concerned this would take time away from him petting me and keeping me happy at all times. It has not been too bad, I have a pillow I nap on under his sewing table while he is sewing. Plus he is now adding more of my natural habitats to the house – quilts.

His latest quilt (a T-shirt quilt made from the best kind of T-shirts possible – T-shirts with drawings of schnauzers on them) came back from the long-arm quilter (this person is okay as a human as she also managed by a miniature schnauzer) and my female human was helping out and putting on the binding to finish it off.

The quilt was draped over the ironing board and my adopted brother Mike and I discovered we could take naps on the edge that touched the floor. The humans of course had to take photos (remember they find everything we do is cute, but maybe this is true).


How to Make Me Mad

I am usually very tolerant of humans and their rituals. However there is one thing I really hate – BATHS!

My humans think they are so cute. They get all the bath supplies ready and then take off my necklace (or collar as some humans call it) and say: “Oh look Sassy is naked!” and giggle (my humans have a low threshold for amusement). They think it is so cute to have me look for places to hide around the house once my necklace comes off.

I have no choice but to endure the bath and I usually have to share the bath area/washtub with my adopted brother Mike. I guess the humans are too lazy to give us each our own private baths.

After the bath drama has ended and I am semi-dry I usually try to seek revenge by wandering the house tossing pillows and quilts about, pretending that I really need to dry myself further on them. That is what those pesky humans get for taking off my necklace and getting me damp!
