Carl books by Alexandra Day

I am doing a rather sad book review today. My husband and I had to put our sweet Rottweiler, Lita, to sleep yesterday and we are (of course) completely heart broken. Kylie, our 4 year old, is starting to grasp that she is not coming home, but it is still a rough go. So in honor of Lita and all the other wonderful Rotties out there (Kristi I know you love your big man too) I present you with... the Carl books.

These are a staple in our house because we do love them so! Alexandra Day has written these beautiful board books for all to enjoy, but if you have a Rottie they will warm your heart just as your sweet one does! Carl goes on adventures of all types in the books and is usually doing his job of taking care of the baby. He is a very responsible dog as y
ou will see and we love reading them over and over (and over and over and over...) again!

Carl can be found in these books...

awwww.. that is the saddest thing ever. i have tears in my eyes just thinking about it. i'm so very sorry for your loss. i dread to even think of the day this will become a reality for me.

the joys and love that any dog bring are irreplaceable.

the Carl books are absolutely adorable! Have you seen one? The illustrations are beautiful. I have a copy of an old FSG catalog, with Carl on the front in a library... so cute.

Hope you know that you and your family are in my thoughts.
