07-09-2010 12:22 PM -- By: , Pet's name: Dear Critter friends. My dear Pearl Ann passed away on 5/5/10, That day I was taking my son, Ethan to baseball practice. Ethan said, " Mom Pearl is at the Pine trees". I said back to him, "She won't go in the road honey". I thought Ethan was talking about our pine trees by our driveway, actually, he was talking of the pines next to our inlaws up the hill. I didn't look. I got a new black lab female about 2 weeks ago. I'm having extreme anxiety and guilt. I keep thinking, if I just would have turned my head, Pearl would be here today. I know I shouldn't blame myself, that's easier said than done. The Serenity Prayer has helped, but I'm looking for some advice. I think I got the new girl to soon, but didn't realize I would be feeling like this. Thanks for your time, Kelly

Look! Look now, down thru the clouds –
The colors, there’s red, orange and green!
A sight to behold, indeed they are –
The fireworks, such a wonderful scene!
The colors are much like the Rainbow, you know,
We’re now sure there’s no reason for fear –
We’ll watch the whole show with joy in our hearts
‘Cause we have the best seats – right here!
But there’s one other thing we will do tonight
When the noise and the fireworks are thru –
We’ll blow sweet little kisses right down from the clouds
‘Cross that Rainbow Bridge, straight to you!!!

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.
