QuiltSmiths' very own mascot, Ivory

This is our dog Ivory as a 2 month old pup.

 Rita saw this picture on the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. website and decided that this was our new dog. The TVGRR Memphis Chapter rescued Ivory from the Memphis Animal Shelter. The TVGRR Memphis Chapter is now Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue! If you love Goldens as much as we do, you'll love both of their sites.

Here Ivory guards QuiltSmiths from her very special brushed cotton quilt bed, she is 3 months old here

This is Ivory in

December 2001,
