Working For My Mom

Woo, everypup and everycat. It's me, Dave. As many of you know, I serve as my mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind. She's been incredibly busy in our Studio lately - which means I've been busy in there, too. She's been making bags like crazy (really exciting news to tell you soon reference one of them!), and is currently working on a really big project I'll tell you about eventually - and is re-writing a tutorial as she goes. Woo. And who has to make sure all the fabrics go together? That's right - me. Davy.

I told you about some of my duties last week; today I'd like to impart the importance of looking at things from different perspectives. Colors change in different lighting, different settings, and depending on how you look at them. So when Mom asks me to check things out for her, I have to view the fabs at different angles.

Looks good this way... let me try something else...

I like it from here, too.

I think some tummy rubs might help me see things more clearly...

DSCN2485 Dave
Ah... sweet bliss!

Err... I mean...

DSCN2486 Dave
Yeah, that looks real good, Mom.

That's for the tutorial she's doing. I don't think she'd be making much progress if I wasn't helping her.

We're back to work this afternoon. I better rest up. Have a great day, everypup and everycat.



  1. Oh Dave!! You are just the best worker!!! I can tell you need some rest after all of that work! Probably more tummy rubs too!

  2. Dave, you are the ultimate working dog! You help your mom do such good work. That's a cool design.

  3. Oh, Dave! You are probably the guy they got the title Working Dogs from.

    Thats a cute little Christmas runner your Mom made. Did you pick out all of those?


  4. That's great work, Dave!

    You really work as hard as your mom with the bags and it seems like you got lots of exciting things going on in the workplace. We'd love to hear about it. Do we see Xmas stuff today? Weeeeee

  6. You definitely have the right idea. A different perspective is always important when making such big decisions. You are doing a wonderful job Davy!!


    PeeEss: You look soooo handsome in those photo's! I want to give your snooter a big smooch!

  7. Dave, we can see you leave no dog unturned in your quest to match colours!

  13. Dave, you are such a cutie!!! :) Don't work too hard!


  14. Really Davy, whatever did your mum do before you came along?


  15. Hah Dave, woo read mom's mind. Tex or Big Tex are 2 of the several she is mulling over! Didn't know that you were telepathic in addition to working colors for your Mom!

  16. Dave you are doing such an awesome job helping mom out.. Tummy rubs always help with the decisions..

  19. Hi, Dave!
    I wonder how you do to handle all that work!
    I guess the tummy rubs help too, right?
    Kisses and hugs

  20. I'm certain the tummy rubs improve your perspective, Dave. Mom's Deeve looks real good, and I KNOW you approved all the colors used in it. Imagine what things would look like if you DIDN'T help her! On second thought, DON'T IMAGINE THAT! You might hurtcherself.

  21. Dave you are obviously great at coordinating colors! Thats a great quilt your mom has made with your help!

  22. Dave you sure are handsome and a real ham in front of the camera.
    Benny & Lily

  23. I'm sure she would only have one block done without your help! She should give you even more tummy rubs.


  24. You are totally wicked cute.


  25. Aw how cute you look when working!

  26. That quilt looks very good!! And very Crisp massy! Hurray!!

  27. Oh Dave, you are such a cool helper. Tummy tickles are the bestest aren't they..hehe

  28. What a great job you are doing Dave...Hope your Mama is giving you lots of belly rubs as payment!


  29. Don't work too hard, Dave!

    Hey Dave,
    What would that woman do without you to guide her along? Service is s tough job but someone has to do it. Any job worth doing is worth doing well.
