06-29-2010 3:39 PM -- By: pat and fayeroe and tippy, Pet's name: fayeroe and tippy I want to apologize for not being here. I'm in the 3rd week of a terrible strain of flu. The headaches alone are enough to kill me. I'm so tired of being sick.
I made my mind up that I would sit at the computer today long enough to write to my Critter's family and let you know that I'm holed up in my bedroom feeling sorry for myself.
I'll be back as soon as I can sit here for longer than 10 minutes.
xoxo to everyone and every fur-covered baby.
06-26-2010 2:57 PM -- By: Sally, Critters.com memorial: Chance Memorial It's been a little over 2 months and I can't believe how clean my floors stay. Don't have to run the sweeper or mop as often, but I hate to admit that I would gladly do it again. I miss everything, all of it. The hectic feeding time with 3 hungry dogs at one time. The sweeping up dog hair daily along with the brushing. Lugging large bags of dog food from the trunk of the car. The expensive vet bills. But most of all, the happy tail wagging when I arrive home. I find myself watching YouTube videos of other German Shepherds running and playing. I have been searching ads and web sites hoping to find one who looks like Chance. I miss him so much and I am so ready to hold another like him in my arms and give a good home to. I know there is one out there and I know it will be accepted by Chance. I think he will see to it that another finds us someday soon.

Gina, Skye, Deb, and Laura,
I came here today to visit each of you-I started out going to Saada's Memorial and starting reading about Jessica and Brutus-Beautiful Babies! Then the tears started and I decided I would visit at a later time. I wanted to thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and support. I am doing ok-it has been hard but I know that they are with Jed and he so loved Sissy. My daughter is getting married on Saturday so I have been able to keep busy and I want this to be an unforgettable day for her. I will visit each of you soon-until then my friends I send you Hugs and Much Love, Kelly

06-20-2010 9:04 AM -- By: Corrie, Critters.com memorial: Max Memorial Happy Father's Day to all the daddys on Critters
When I was with you, we always had such fun,
You’d make me feel that I was your special one!
I could always tell by the kindness in your smile,
You could recall how things look through the eyes of a child.
If I really needed a hug or two,
I knew that I could always depend on you.
Cuz giving hugs is what Daddys do best,
And you always did it better than all the rest!
Here is a secret, and it is so true-
Daddy, my heart will always belong to you!
Love Forever, your Furbaby

06-15-2010 9:16 PM -- By: Leigh, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit and Raven Memorial My freinds, We lost Raven yesterday , Monday, the 14th. . I have placed on along side with Raven here and in a few days I will somehow collect myself and tell you her story. She was taken from us by a cancerous kidney tumor. It was fast. I am also taken aback for the fact we lost our Little Bits on Jan 14, ( 2 years ago) and now we lost our sweet baby Raven June 14th, 2010. Please please visit often and help us thru this as you did for our first loss and I dont want to think of my poor Raven not thought of as much as Little Bitty, I know you understand. Those of you who know us ,know the tough times we have been thru lately , I pray this is the end as I cant take anymore. The little bit of my heart left after Little bits left is now departed with Raven and I am so very very empty without her. I love you all.

06-14-2010 11:30 AM -- By: Sally, Critters.com memorial: Chance Memorial
Father's Day will be this Sunday, the 20th. It will fall on the 2 month Angel Day for my boy Chance. My husband and I have no children and I would give him a card "from his boys". Now that may sound silly to some, but to us it was a sweet jesture.
We were returning home the other night in the middle of a terrific storm. The lightening was steady and close. Chance was always so fearful of storms and would become so aggitated. We always would check weather reports before leaving the house and if storms were in the forecast, we would leave him in the laundry room. That was his "storm shelter" and he seemed to be calm in there with no windows. Driving through the storm Saturday night, my husband commented that at least Chance couldn't hear this one. I think he could, but now he knows he is safe from any harm. That, my dear Critter friends, is why it's so hard for us to let go and trust the care of our sweet pets to someone else, even God. I just have to know that he is ok and know in my heart that his spirit is with us still. I love my 2 other fur babies and they love me. Their antics keep me going and cheer me everyday. I don't know how I would have managed this without them. Having them and Critters.com has been my outlet and I am so grateful for all of you here.
06-12-2010 3:20 AM -- By: caren, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial I forgot to add on my last message that for all the sweet babies that have passed on since june lst i want to say bless you to all the babies and thier families and you will be in our prayers.
06-10-2010 4:29 PM -- By: Kelly, Critters.com memorial: Pearl Ann Memorial Hi Critter Friends, It's been just over 5 weeks since my Pearl Ann was taken from me. Each day does get a bit better, but I still cry myself to sleep at night. I can't close my eyes because all I see is her on the side of the road after I came over the hill. I still have her hair on the dashboard in my car and in her seat in my Durango. I can't let myself clean it. Her picture is still in front of me in my car, and her memorial is still set up in our livingroom. I miss my girl more than ever. Sitting at my desk here, I just wish I could touch her with my feet to rub her back, she was always sleeping under my desk here at work. I smell her collar and it still smells like her. Besides pictures that's all I have of her. I miss you dearly Pearly Girl, more than ever. x0x0x0x0x Mama

My Dearest Critters Family ... I just wanted to Thank You those of you who remembered my little boy Bob M a/k/a Bob Macaroni's First-Year Angelversary. Needless to say, yesterday was a sad day as Bob M is surely missed by me .. but sorely missed by Cupcake .. who .. as you know, grew up for 11 months with Bob M. They were the Best friends ever until Bob's passing.
Each of your kind words and thoughts are truly appreciated by me and I know by my girl Cupcake. I do know that Bob's little spirit is with us ... I just know it ... and I won't go into detail why .. but I know.
Thanks again .. and always know that each of you is so cherished by me. Charles
06-10-2010 12:17 PM -- By: From Dogster, Pet's name: Even though the industry is changing, arsenic-treated wood is still frequently sold for use in decking and outdoor flooring materials. You'll know it by the yellowish tint of the wood.
It is not advisable to feed your dog foods such as ice cubes, snacks or bones that he can eat directly off the treated wood. If you have such outdoor flooring, let your dog eat his burger on th grass.

06-08-2010 1:19 PM -- By: Rebecca , Critters.com memorial: Whisk Memorial Critters has helped me alot so far, and I am extremely thankful that I found this site. Since my Whisk went to sleep, I have not felt like doing anyrhing. I do not even feel like going to work, but unfortunately that I must do. I don't feel like reading or sewing or doing things that made me happy. I don't even feel like emails and internet. But critters has given me the will to start again. As sad and as difficult as it is for me, I visit Whisk's memorial everyday. And I make sure to visit Birthdays and Angelversity too, to pay my respects to others like me. My heart is still empty, but I am trying.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me kind, loving words of support. And thank you Critters.com. I love you Whisk - you will NEVER be forgotten!
Love & Prayers
Rebecca & Whisk
06-06-2010 9:55 AM -- By: Jon, Critters.com memorial: Circe (Kitty) Memorial
As the one year mark has passed since my Circe crossed over, I've decided to do what I've been thinking about doing for some time now, and that is to make her memorial a private special place just for the two of us. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and support during the past year, the most difficult time of my life. You all are truly wonderful and I wish the very best for each and every one of you.
06-06-2010 5:18 AM -- By: Lu, Critters.com memorial: Kiddy Zhang Memorial I'm also happy to find critters.com. Since Kiddy passed on unexpectedly in the early morning of May 18, most of my activities have been writing "Letters to Kiddy" to cope with the deep loss. I didn't know any online pet memorials site, so I posted my letters on my professional Web site. I was ridiculed and even attacked for writing the letters at an anonymous site. Saying goodbye to a 12-year daddy-daughter relationship with unconditional love has been extremely difficult. I'm happy to find this community. My Kiddy is playing happily with all of your fur-babies in the Bridge now...

06-05-2010 6:20 PM -- By: Tim, Critters.com memorial: Annie Girl Memorial I am so happy to find this site, I am truly loss without my Annie Girl, life is not the same without her, so was my partner for 13 years and I miss her so much, when does the hurt go away.

06-04-2010 9:40 PM -- By: Leigh, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit Memorial To all my freinds and family here, As you all know, I have had a really tough time with the loss of my baby girl Little Bits, and since her passing, we have been through more rough times, more so than normal. With the murder of our nephew and other tragedys. Today I have another hardship to endure. When we lost our sweet Little Bitty, we were always comforted with her little sister, Raven. After many trips to our vet, tests and treatment attempts, we were told we are going to lose our sweet little Raven now. Its only been a hair over 2 years since we lost Little Bit and with Raven , we have had a little baby in our lives for 20 plus years. My Raven has a large nasty tumor that is not treatable with surgury on her left kidney. During our treatment plan, instead of the tumor reducing in size, it almost doubled in a weeks time in size. Raven is like Little Bitty, a toy poodle and only weighs 8 pounds. The tumor today is the size of a grapefruit. This will not take a long time. It will be soon. I have decisions to make again, I dont want to do this again!
I love each and every one of you and your sweet furbabies, I wanted to let you know what is going on. My life has turned upside down since Little Bits departure. Will it ever end. Now I have to find some strength somewhere and do it all over again. God the pain.
Bless each of you and your babies!
Leigh Mommy of Little Bit and Raven
