here is moses hanging out under the bed. there is hair everywhere under there. i don't even care. it used to bug me when it was all over my clothes and whatnot. but i just don't care anymore. it's not worth it ya know? those little things don't matter. i love this dog and all the hair that comes along with him. i saw a sad picture today of a dog mourning over his owner who was killed in the war. he laid at his coffin and it seriously broke my heart. it was the saddest thing i have ever seen. all i wanted to do was come home and hug moses. i feel like i take too many things for granted. and one thing that has made that aware to me is this book. i am almost finished with it. i'll probably finish it after i post this. although the thought of it ending makes me sad. have you ever been torn about finishing a book? i don't want it to be over. i want it to last. maybe i should wait.. nah. i can't. this book is just so well written and i am so sucked in. it has changed my perspective on a lot of things. i can't believe this is kathryn stocketts first novel. she is amazing. i can't even explain how much i love it. i think that everyone should read it. i honestly just don't even know what to say about it. i feel like if i try to explain it.. i will not do it justice. so just go read it if you haven't yet. i can't wait to see the movie.

Look at that face! How can you not love that face?! Btw, do you realize how fabulous this Utah weather is? I am loving it but I'm sure winter is a different story.

My mom just got that book. I think I may steal it from her when shes done. Torn about a book/movie ending I got two words...Harry Potter. I was so depressed after seeing the movie especially. That may seem silly though.

I love when a book sucks you in and you love it so much that you know you're going to be sad when it's done.

I saw that picture too! It seriously almost made me cry. It made me miss my Claire ha it's kinda funny how attached you can get to those dogs huh? I honestly think of Claire as my kid, im sure your the same with Moe. And I have the help! I got it last week but I haven't started it yet, Im hoping to start it today if I can find time! Love you Chloe! Your one of my favorite sisters!ha

honestly, just hearing a description of that photo made me tear up a bit.

i think it's really astounding how much empathy dogs have.

Did you LOVE the book? I finished it earlier this week. I LOVED it. Then I went and saw the movie 2 nights ago and it follows the book closer than any other movie following a book I have ever read. The cast too was perfect. Loved the book, loved the movie! Go see it. Sean will like it to!
