Jeanne Esmond wrote: I lost my old girl, Katie, last year just shy of 14 years old. She was very ill the last year of her life and the only place she would walk was down the street to Telefix. Jay and Pat kept a huge box of dog biscuits for whatever dog should happen in. Jay fed Katie 12+ biscuits every time we came in. Poor Sandy was starting to look like a stuffed Airedale when I cut him off of whole biscuits. He only got half biscuits from then on. 

Telefix has closed since the quilt was completed a victim of cheap TVs. The Town misses their generous spirits and good humor! This block is made to honor them and my Katie whose wicked sense of humor and exuberant ways personify all that is good about Airedales.



This is the artist's rendition of Jeanne's inspiration
