Because we move so often, we have been a cat-only family since our dumb-as-a-rock-but-oh-so-sweet jindo mix passed away 10 years ago. As we look toward the retirement (and kids' college) years ahead, though, I have been thinking about eventually rescuing a Bernese mountain dog to add to our craziness. I have wanted one my whole life, but when I realized I had to be a responsible adult and research whether it was a pipe dream or if the breed qualities would be a good match for our family, I was surprised to find out the breed is exactly what we are looking for. Their biggest flaws are a tendency toward shyness or separation anxiety, and sadly, a high chance of a shorter lifespan due to a number of medical conditions,
It will be a while before we can start searching for the perfect addition to our family, so in the meantime I have drafted up Rascal to put in the shop as part of the Dog Breeds Collection.
Rascal comes in a 10" block and is of moderate difficulty.
I find this block to be so cheerful, with the giant doggy grin. Anyone want to adopt this pup and give the block a test run? Testers receive a free copy of the pattern in exchange for your feedback and comments, as well as a free copy of the revised pattern when it is released.

My daughter has a BMD named Alibi. I have never paper pieced but it is on my goal sheet to learn how for 2021. I would love to use the pattern for a pillow for the black, white, and brown quilt I already made her.
