Celebrate the small things

On Fridays we celebrate anything we want. Speaking of celebrating, be sure to stop by to see what she and her blogging partners have to say. Here's news from our house to yours:

  • It's been a difficult week for us. We had to have our very special dog, Elliott, put to sleep after 13.5 years of being our "third son." He was having a great deal of trouble walking and the doctor said it was likely he had tumors. We used to tell our sons it was okay that Elliott didn't look like them because he was adopted. He was the best dog ever and we will forever miss him, but now he can play in Heaven and have fun like he couldn't do here anymore. We will celebrate his life with us.
  • My sister and brother-in-law moved far away. We already miss them, but we can still Skype and email.
  • We'll celebrate all of you who visit my blogs and website. Where would I be without you?

Have a great week with lots to celebrate.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about Elliott. Last year we had to do the same with our lovable dog, and our 20 y/o Kitty. It's very heartbreaking. I hope you're feeling better next week.

  2. Thank you so much Cathrina. We were blessed to have him for so long, but it's still a sad time for us. I know you miss Otis and your kitty. So sorry they are not with you.

  3. So sorry to hear about Elliot, he sounds like he was a real part of your family, remember all the happy times you shared. It is good to have so many ways like Skype to keep in touch with family and friends even when they live far away.

    1. Thank you so much Suzanne. We will always remember him and the fun we had together. Thanks for visiting and I hope you're having a nice weekend.

  4. Sorry to hear about your dog. We lost 12 year old Taz in very similar circumstances a coupe of years ago now. He was a great pet. I hope you have a better week this week.
