Yesterday I went to a Tastefully Simple party at my friend, Heather's house, with my other friend, Tracy. She lives right around the corner from the house that Adrian and I are interested in buying this spring...keep your fingers crossed it's still on the market then. Anyways we had a great time...lots of Red Cat and Bully Hill going around! Hope to see you girls again soon!

Today I picked up my dress for my friend, Beth's wedding. Im the MOH, and I absolutely LOVE the dress! YAY! 1 dress down, 2 more to go!

After the dress pick up we took Carter to the "Good Dog Park." This was our first time going there. I was pretty surprised how busy the park was, considering it was only 30 degrees today, although by CNY standards 30 in Jan is pretty good. We took our petite pup to the "small dog" side. 25 lbs and under, please. The "big dog" side was scary! Lots of labs, a pit, husky, and a beagle. Not that we were personally afraid, but Carter is much too little to run with the big dogs. He thinks he's a big dog, oh but not so much. Anyways, Carter had a blast. He made friends with Ricky, a Boston Terrier. Personally, I think Ricky was a little rough with our guy, but there was no injury and Carter was loving his life! We were there for about a half an hour before Adrian and I were freezing and decided to leave. So, Carter was stripped of his cute little sweater that was now covered in snow and was wrapped tight in a blanket to warm up...and we wonder why he is spoiled!

PS- NKOTB, here we come! SOOO excited:)

Carter's New 'Do

Carter playing on his new steps!

Don't mind the wet beard...he just had a drink!

We took Carter to the groomer last night and he got a full groom for the first time! He looks much older and smaller without all of that hair flying around!

Bad at Posting

I have been bad a posting these last few days. There has been a lot going on...Adrian has been away visiting his mom in Westchester...we had a long weekend for MLK day...we have been looking at houses in the area to buy...Carter went to Aunt Jo and Uncle Fred's house today and learned some new commands (what a smart guy I have)...Em and D stopped over on Friday...Aunt Jo, Kiera, Jeannine, Mom and Aunt Bert on Sat...the list goes on! Nothing too exciting, but enough to keep me from documenting every step Carter takes!

Speaking of steps...Grandma bought Carter steps so that he can get up and down from the couch without our help. He is a little skeptical still about using them, but when tired enough or when hungry enough he will use them without issue. I will post pics of this cuteness soon!

Still trying to figure out whats up for the Big 3-0 in March...I will keep you all posted!

A Day In The Life of Carter

Wait to go outside


Look cute!


Carter has started to teeth, and as you can see has started to loose some of his baby teeth! He spends most of the time chewing on his favorite bone...and my ankles:)

Puppy Class Here We Come!

Carter went to the vet today and received his final puppy shot, as well as a kennel cough vaccination. This means our boy can now start attending puppy class...YAY! The vet also began speaking to us about neutering him and possibly micro-chipping him. This will all take place around six mos, which means probably sometime in March. Sorry for the lack of new, fun pics...I've been busy after work and with group starting back up tomorrow I may take a few days to post new ones...Carter is as cute as ever though...he's currently watching me type and Adrian play Wii tennis,while suffering from those darn hiccups!

Happy New Year!

Carter's new favorite spot--IN the toy basket with his Christmas bone.

I wish it was the shape of a cigar

Carter's new sweater from grandma and grandpa. I think he looks quit handsome!

Happy New Year to all! We rang in the New Year just the two of us over dinner! Next year maybe a big party at our house?!

The Baby in Burberry

The Burberry was passed down from Bailey to Carter on Christmas. Aunt Jo gave Carter an authentic Burberry bandanna that she received from her jeweler when she got Bailey as a pup. As you can see the bandanna is a little big, but we don't care...we love labels!:)

Christmas with Carter

It's been awhile since our last post. The Holidays take up a lot of time!
Carter's first Christmas was great, he got lots of doggy presents from Santa
and family.

Adrian and I celebrated Christmas (opening presents to one another)
on Christmas Eve, before we went out to my parent's house, and eventually
to my Aunt's house for the annual Christmas Eve party. I got a really pretty ring from Adrian- it's a right hand ring! Adrian got a lot of random things from me- cologne, DVDs, clothes. Nothing exciting like my ring! I will post a picture at some point.

Carter went to our family Christmas Eve party for about an hour, then he went up to Aunt Bert's house where he completed some "Nascar laps" around her dinning room table. Aunt Bert is a huge Nascar fan, so anytime she can use it for an example or to talk about, she does! Apparently Carter was running incredibly fast around her table, over and over again. I think he felt the
energy of all of the animals that came before him there and was feeding off of the excitement! Aunt Bert was left with 5 treats to give Carter. Lets just say that she likes to overindulge the animals in the family with treats. Now mind you, Carter was with Aunt Bert for 3 hours and he got all five treats. I know for a fact he did not go outside to potty 5 times, and he does not know that many tricks to earn all of those treats! Oh well, Carter and Aunt Bert were happy:)

On Christmas Eve we also FINALLY got the chance to meet Baby Emma, aka "Internet Baby." She is my cousin Dan and his wife Krista's new little baby girl. She is the cutest thing going, a total "Riggs!" Can't wait to see her again!

We spent the night at my parent's house on Christmas Eve. Christmas day Aunt Jo, Uncle Fred, Brian, Kiera, and Aunt Bert came over for the day. The presents were plentiful, as was the food. All in all it was a great day!

Here are some pics of Carter's first Christmas!

Carter's first introduction to his stocking. He was
afraid of the jingle bells on it.

Finally, he gets up the courage to pull out a present.
It never takes me that long!

Carter under our Christmas tree. It was difficult
to get him to pose.

I wanted a picture of him in the new Uggs, but he wasn't
