Charlie

They say a puppy soothes the heart and soul...

We picked up Charlie on friday and already he has been very therapeutic for us all and is keeping us busy. The kids love having him to dote on. This never would have been possible with Noah, but I can't help imagining how much Noah would have loved this little guy and what fun they would have had!


It's been 7 weeks today...how is that even possible???

Charlie is adorable. My grandpuppy is named Charlie. My Skye just turned 8 months old. If you have any questions I can help. I have a way with dogs. Skye is totally house broken, we used a bell at the door and we would ring it when we put her outside. She now rings it when she has to go. Also, put him out every hour if you can. Make sure you get him some compressed rawhide chews. The word they use now is wrong rather then No! It works pretty well. I am so happy, it won't ever take your heartache away but he will bring allot of love into the house. Whatever is important to you, like shoes, keep up. Watch for electrical cords too! God Bless.

We still keep praying for you. Adam still prays for Noah every evening, he is so used to it ("please help Noah to get better") I keep explaining that Noah is "all better".
Anyways, I bought the ingredients to make you a cheese cake, and will make it soon
Love & prayers

Oh he is soooo cute!!! What a little ball of cuteness. I hope and pray he will be a small part in God's healing for you. Noah would have loved him for sure. :)

Charlie is so very sweet! Something that makes all of you smile and remember to be happy is very good! I believe that Noah would be happy about that.

I have to admit, that despite my not liking pets of the four-legged variety, Charlie is SUPER cute. I love to see how Kailyn & Joshua (and my kids)dote on him. I've also enjoyed watching how Charlie can make YOU smile...I've missed that. Seven weeks? You're right, how can that be? Missing Noah too here too. Thinking and praying for you always...love to you all...

Oh, Charlie is so cute! I am so pleased that a little bit of light is shining at your house. One of your friends mentioned seeing you with a smile, and I am glad to hear that.

Thinking of you and continuing to pray,

awww he's so cute and I just love his name!!! So precious! Glad you have a new little friend to bring laughter and silliness to your home. We took the plunge recently as well...Piper is adored by the kids even if I find her more work than a few kids combined ;) Praying for you. I can hear Noah's laugh from heaven watching you all play with Charlie!!
