Five on Friday

1. Rest Peacefully, Carter

A week ago today, my brother and his family had to put their dog Carter to sleep. He was 13 ½ years old and my brother and his wife got him when he was just a little puppy. I call my siblings dogs my fur nieces and nephews. Carter has been in my life for a long time and I loved him like he was my own dog. I have so many wonderful memories of him and with him. Rest peacefully, sweet boy.

^The above photos of Carter are so funny. I was trying to get a good picture of him & I but he kept giving me kisses.^
^These photos are so very precious & priceless to me.^

2. Weekend Recap

On Saturday, my mom and I went to the movies and out to eat with my Grandma. We saw Love The Coopers and it was a really good movie. My mom and I also went to a bunch of different stores. On Sunday, my mom and I spent the morning cleaning and getting stuff done. I watched the football games (Jets & Giants) in the afternoon since it was a rare treat that both games were televised where I live. At night, my Aunt Pat & Aunt Lorrie came over for dinner and desert. It was really nice getting to spend time with them. On Monday, my mom and I took the day off from our jobs and spent the day with my aunts. It was a really wonderful holiday weekend.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about Carter. :( Dogs really are family and it is so hard to lose one.

    I really want to see Love the Coopers! Glad to hear it was good.

    1. Thank you so much, Mattie. Yes, it is really hard. One my last trip to see them, (at the end of October) when I said goodbye to him, I wish I had made it last longer now that I know it was my last time seeing him.

      They were a lot of characters so in the beginning it was a little hard to follow (kind of like Love, Actually) but I really enjoyed it.

      Thanks for stopping by and for the comment! :)

  2. :( I'm so sorry to hear about Carter. Dogs truly become part of the family and saying goodbye to them is one of the hardest parts of life I believe. Prayers for you all!

    1. Thank you so much, Katie, for the beautiful comment. I believe it's one of the hardest parts of life as well. Thanks, again!

  3. So sorry to hear about Carter. So sad to lose such an important part of the family! Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much, Mags for the beautiful comment. It was very hard losing him. Had I known during my last visit (at the end of October) that it would have been my last time seeing him, I would have made our goodbye last a really long time.
