My agility instructors dog was recently diagnosed with cancer. She’s only 7 and is a top competitor so it was a real shock to her owners. They decided to move forward with chemo treatments and are holding an agility fun match to raise funds for the treatment.  If you know of anyone in the N. Seattle area please pass the info along.  I got motivated to produce some items for the raffle/silent auction to help them out.  I made a pile of fleece tugs for both this event and the raffle I’m organizing for Chase away k9 cancer.  My real accomplishment was putting together my first quilt for Jules fundraiser.  It came out about 5’x4′ and featured Border Collie fabric (of course).  It was hard to give it away, but I wont be able to make it to the fundraiser as it’s the same day as disc regionals and I wanted to help in a major way as I know how brutally hard it is to have to make decisions about your dogs health and life because you don’t have the finances to cover the care.

    Love the quilt– I’m a quilter too so I know how hard it is to give them away 🙂
    We’ll be sending good thoughts for Jules!
