I wanted to make a quilt for my neighbor's daughter, and found a Clementine jelly roll for a good price on ebay. (This was during my surgery recovery, when I spent almost all day online.) On the day that the box came, I opened the box, examined its contents, and then put it in the hallway next to the basement/sewing dungeon door (so that I would remember to take it downstairs with me).
As always, Bentley watched me do this. Since he can't stand to be more than 3 feet away from me, I didn't think anything of him following me into the hallway. I went back into the family room and sat on the couch. A second or two later, I saw a white flash jump into my dad's recliner. I documented what I saw next and have translated his expressions for you (I am fluent in Small Evil Dog Thoughts).
What?!?! I just wanted to look at it... I've never seen one of these before!
Don't you dare take this away from me until I have had a chance to examine it.

Oh mom, how nice of you!! You bought me a new pillow!!!
This is one of the many, many times that I have told him, "thank goodness you're cute. Otherwise, I might have to strangle you." Because really, who can be mad at *that* face?!?!?!?!
(For the record, Bentley is a Bichon, and they are hypo-allergenic. Plus, my neighbors have a dog that is half Bichon, so I'm really not worried about giving away the quilt made from this jelly roll that now has Bentley germs.)
