Arlo's Quilt Arlo’s Quilt
By: LizA., Washington, USA

This quilt was made for our Dalmatian, Arlo. While camping one time we caught him all curled up on the bed in our VW bus with the edge of a quilt in his mouth, trying to figure out how to cover himself with it. He knows it’s HIS quilt & insists on being covered with it when he’s on the couch.

    Hi Becky,

    Check if you have your text set to larger. Go to view, text size, set at medium. If you need to enlarge the text on my site, use Zoom instead, as it will enlarge everything correctly. You’ll find Zoom under the new menu as well.
