Hi all.

I hope that all at Critters are enjoying the springtime (allergy season is in full bloom here in teh DC area).  I once again ask that good thoughts and wishes be sent to a colleague of mine.  She adopted a greyhound from the rescue organization.  He's been with her for a few years.  Both have had their difficulties in life, but they found one another, which has been a blessing for both of them.  Unfortunately, he is expereincing some health issues.  I'm not sure of the severity, but hope that all is resolved happily for them.

I think that the power of prayer and positive, healing thoughts and ishes can truly result in 'miracles'.  A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you.

Love is Knowing When

Love is knowing when
You're giving me a special gift
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing when
Your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes
Beyond into your soul,
I see in you the magic
That once will make me whole.

The strength that you possess
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I'm here with you
And chose you as my friend,
And why I loved you all these years
My partner till the end.

Please understand just what this gift
You're giving means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost
And gently sets me free.

So one last time I breathe your scent
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within your heart
To grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and sturdy dog
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing
For I won't be far away,
Forever here within your heart
And memory I'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you
Your ever-faithful friend,
In your memories I'll run
A young dog once again.

THANK YOU very much to all who visited and signed BUFFY'S guestbook.  It touches me deeply and helped me immensely with the grieving process.  Our BOOGIE and DOOPA are also memorialized here and I love receiving "angelversary" guestbook signings for them.

I wanted to do something to Thank the Mystery poet so I have started a page with the BEAUTIFUL poems that I have grown to look forward to every day on my babys site. Its called Blessings from the Mystery Poet. It looks really bland right now as I have a broken finger and have run out of time before my work shift starts today. For those of you who I have not told, I have recently begun work at a kennel and rescue organization very near my home about 2 1/2 months ago..its very rewarding and I love it because it is a NO KILL shelter. Much love to you all as work is calling, Christy and her critters XOXO

  I ran out of time , work calls so posting on here for you all,,,,,Angel Wings

At the ending of the day when I'm weary
After a waterfall of tears have all been cried
And I'm feeling like the skies will always be dreary
Nothing's there to fill the emptiness inside.

I lay my head upon my favorite pillow
Just close my eyes to block all the sorrow
wonderin' where I'll ever find the strength inside-
to do it all again- tomorrow.

And then I feel it-
inside me.
I feel it-
around me.
Like a gentle hand just wiped away the tears-
and held me close to wash away my fears.

It's you, my angel, watching over me.
And I know no matter what tomorrow brings,
You'll be here to wrap me in your angel wings-
your lovin' angel wings.

The sun comes up, it's time to face the day
and I think that things are going to be all right-
But as the day wears on my nerves begin to fray-
I feel the hollowness that creeps in every night.

And like clockwork all the tears begin to fall
As I look at my reflection in the glass-
the eyes looking back at me make me feel small-
and I ask, my God, how long's this going to last?

And then I feel it-
inside me.
I feel it-
around me.
Like a gentle hand just wiped away the tears-
and held me close to wash away my fears.

It's you, my angel watching over me.
And I know no matter what tomorrow brings,
You'll be here to wrap me in your angel wings-
your lovin' angel wings.

Thank God for your angel wings

Hhhhmmm, I don't know who this gift from God is that we have dubbed the "Mystery Poet" and I REALLY wanted to know at first but sometimes its best to just be content with the gifts that God gives to you in mysterious ways.

 for all who I did not post too, But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye,
For all of life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that that could never be,
For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me.

04-07-2010 3:44 PM -- By: Charles,    Critters.com memorial:   Sammy Memorial

To All My Dearest Critters Family ... I am so blessed to have Family in each of you.  Thank You for coming to visit Sammy's memorial today .. his Second-Year Angelversary.  It has meant the world to me to see all my Critters Family visiting and always their kind words.

Though today was a day full of mixed emotions .. saddness and happiness all bundled into one .. BUT .. I do know that Sammy is happy and restored to health and is with all of your babies ... that is why we ALL met .. and I always have said ... "IF NOT FOR OUR FURBABIES ... WE WOULD HAVE NEVER MET," so .. I thank each of your babies for bringing me a family that I love and cherish ... for you all ... I probably would not be here today.

Sammy gave me the strength to love again .. after I vowed after he passed .. to NEVER get another baby .. BUT .. he gave me the strength to love again ... hence .. my beautiful girl Cupcake and beautiful son Xandere .. who, both have put the "sparkle" and smiles back into my life .. when they disappeared after Sammy's passing.

Thank you ... thank you ... thank you ... every one of you ... from the bottom of my heart .. for visiting my son Sammy on his Second-Year Angelversary.

Much love to all .. Charles

I hope all of our wonderful friends had a Blessed Easter Weekend. A big Thank-you to the Mysterious Poem " Bandit " who again left a beautiful reminder on my babies memorial. Whoever you are, I know how many lives you have touched with your thoughtfulness and please know that many of us are very grateful to you as I know that what you have done for so many moms and dads is very time-consuming. Hugs, Christy and Greta

HAPPY EASTER   Critters .......

EASTER GREETINGS!!

You, my friend, are one
great reason to celebrate
this Easter season.
Wishing you an Easter that's
as special as can be

Flowers blooming,
reaching out to touch
the morning sun, bring
promises of hope and joy
meant for everyone
If I've learned one thing in life it's:
You can't fight city hall,
but you can drive by at night and egg it.

I treat people like chocolate bunnies at Easter!
I bite their heads off.
Happy Easter.

The beauty of spring is
captured in special moments with you."

You're a springtime kind of person,
and there's sunshine in your smile.
There's warmth in all the gladness you impart.
And here's the special reason
you're so like this lovely season--
It's the springtime that you keep within your heart.
Happy Easter Happy Spring

As spring comes to the world,
bringing sunshine and gladness...
...this comes to you
bringing wishes for joy.
Happy Easter

 

Easter has a warmer glow,
Spring, a brighter touch,
Because I'm sharing them with you...
The one I love so much.

 

Like gentle spring breezes...
Thoughts of you at Easter
bring a special kind
of happiness to my heart.
Happy Easter

Paula, I am so sorry to hear ab out Karley's sentencing :(  NO JUSTICE WAS SERVED and that was just horrible to hear and very heartbreaking.  The system has failed us yet again.

HAPY EASTER,

Easter is a special time, a joyful holiday a time to join with family to pray .
Easter comes with baskets and with baskets and with Easter eggs galore,
and Easter cards the handmade kind that moms and dads adore.
Easter brings a new spring dress with lace and ribbons on it,
and fancy hats with frills beginning to appear.
Babies too of every kind arrived this time each year.
Fluffy,yellow ,chirping chicks come popping out of eggs,
and woolly lamb come tottering on thin,unsteady legs.
As springs fresh breezes chase away the winters ice
and show heaven’s gentle showers help the Easter flowers grow.
The wet world welcomes springs soft showers, and once the clouds move
and the rain drys slowly dries like the day slowly drowns to darkness.
Gods love blooms in hearts again, as flowers do each spring.
And we reach out with tenderness to every living.
At Easter let us celebrate the wonders of our Earth,
and thank God for the gift of life and promise or rebirth.

Wishing all the furbabies a wonderful Easter holiday at the Rainbow Bridge -

To all Critters family, may Easter and Passover fill your hearts with peace in the knowledge that our special angels truly wait for us . . .

If anyone that visits Daisy tomorrow would like to visit her bd. party pg.  you are more than welcome.  It is not a sad pg.   I believe all the furbabies are having ongoing beautiful celebrations.  We cannot even imagine the beauty of the colors there or the angels choir.  The pg was made with the intent of leaving us with a lighter heart and maybe to walk away with a smile.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter.  Your fur babies will be having a fun day on Sunday at the bridge.  They will send all of their humans lots of love on that day.

Happy Passover to our Jewish friends.  Your babies will be enjoying a very happy day on Sunday also. 

The results of Karley's sentencing is in.  No justice was served.

xoxo...karley
