This past week a bittersweet surprise arrived in a friend’s mailbox.
Recently, a friend of mine from the basset hound community lost her first ever basset. Gus, her boy, was a special hound with lots of personality. He was accomplished in the show ring and a constant companion to my friend.
The loss of Gus hit me pretty deeply and I wanted to do something to honour his memory. I immediately started working on this mini quilt. The words on the top and bottom were from the tribute to Gus that my friend posted online. It has his registered American Kennel Club name at the top and bottom (BISS GCH Sasquatch Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo), and then the words “Gus, constant companion, my shadow, I love you, always and forever.”
Here’s to all those special, one-of-a-kind dogs.
