Sherri,

I must agree with you that at least the babies were taken to the shelter.I think if just one person at a time reads caliya's page "the beginning" and thinks "uh maybe"

it's not the "breed" and that things beyond their control just may be what contributed to the "bad rap" that my beloved caliya did not deserve and that she was a victim. I wish with all my heart that i could do more but at critter's caliya's legacy lives on. I want to take this time to thank all of the parents that i have met here and come to love as we are the critters family.

Love,

Denise

Hi Everyone. First of all ,I want to personally thankyou Richard for posting about the fur babies needing help in SC. Although i was saddened when i read your post, i knew there has to be people out there offering their help as there are alot of  good hearted people loving the four legged creatures in the world as i personally do. Thankyou.

Charles. What can i say but thankyou, thankyou,thankyou for doing all you do for these fur babies and loving them as you do. I knew you would be on top of things when you read Richard's post. As i wrote to you ,i was ready to do all possible to bring them to Luke's Shelter where i knew they would be safe. BUT HOW???????. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for keeping me updated on these babies and giving me the GREAT news on them. Thankyou for joining me and others and being a voice for those who can't speak for themselves. THANKYOU.

Denise. Thankyou for sending me the video of these babies and most of all thankyou for being the caring person that you are and donating to these babies in need. Thankyou for also joining me and others and being the voice for those who can't speak for themselves. Thankyou.

Hugs to all.

I held your paw inside my hand and then you slipped away
And I may never see your face again
So tell me how do to fill the emptiness inside
Without love what is life?

And anyone who knew us both can see
We always were the better part of me
I never wanted to be this free
All this pain, does it go away?

Then every time I turn around
And youre nowhere to be found
I know I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to you
Oh, I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to all I ever knew
To you Boo, to you

From memory, there is no hiding place
Turn on the tv and I see you there
In every crowd theres always some dog with your face
Everywhere, trying not to care

Then every time I turn around
And youre nowhere to be found
I know I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to you
Oh, I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to all I ever knew

To you, I wish you peace and everything
And all the best that Heaven can bring
I only hope you think of me sometimes, oh
And even though I feel the pain
I know that I will love again
The time will come, oh, and Ill move on

I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to you
Oh, I got a long, long way to go, got a long way to go
Before I can say goodbye, before I say goodbye
To all I ever knew, to all I ever knew was you
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Boo my baby Girl, I wish you the best in your journey to heaven I know,
oh and all of the rest, and peace to you
I got a long, long way to go
Before I can say goodbye to you

Denise,

It was a wonderful thing, making a donation in Caliyas name to the shelter that helped with all the poor,innocent, little creatures(PB pups.) All I can say that is SOMEWHAT GOOD about this ignorant breeder is that at least the pups were brought to a shelter, unlike another story I heard about in our area where the pups did NOT meet 'BREED STANDARD' and all were drowned!

Richard,

it was great that you realized right away that this forum at critters, with all it's caring people, would bring action. Thanks to you, from us all-I am sure.

Charles,

Your involvement in this situation more than likely saved these little pups from a very short life or even a fate WORSE than death! Keep up your great work.

Many thanks from ALLof us to ALL mentioned above.

Maddie's mom, Sherri

Dear Richard,

We made a $100.00 donation to your greenville county animal shelter to care for the puppies in caliya's memory. Thank you with all my heart for caring for these beautiful pit bull babies.charles padilla wrote to the division manager on their behalf.

Dearest Critters Family:  Good news .. I was contacted by the Greenville County Animal Care Services and all those baby Pitbulls are now in foster homes and/or in Pitbull Rescues.  Needless to say ... I HAVE SMILES FROM EAR TO EAR ...

I was advised when they opened up at 12:00 Noon local time .. there was 20 families ready to adopt some of these babies.

I am so happy .... Thank You Richard for letting me know via the Forum Section.

In Response to Richard's Posting Below:

Richard .. thank you for sharing and be assured I am going to read and respond, if possible, to the local authorities where this occurred. 

When are these SICK, SICK individuals going to stop breeding pitbull puppies for "their" own desire, i.e., color, etc.  My gosh, the human race disgusts me to the point that I am embarrassed to even say I am a human being.

I will try to do what I can to see if we can get these defenseless Pitbull babies flown to some Pitbull Rescues around the U.S. that do adopt out.

Again, thank you for letting "me" know .. as I will start working on this right now.  I ask any other Pitbull lover out there to please, please try to find some organization that would take these babies in.

Thank You so much.

 Soar Like An Eagle



Spread your mystical wings
and take your flight.
Soar like an eagle
To the great heavens above.



No need to feel
any sense of fright,
For you shall enter
Into a place of love.


It breaks my heart knowing
that you're forever gone.
Yet the beautiful memories
shall remain here within me.


I realize that I must
carry on and be strong.
Until the day that we
do once again meet. 


I do love you enough
to set you free.
To allow you to spread
your wings and soar.



For you shall enter into
a kingdom,
that's filled with peace.
Where your pain & suffering
shall be no more.


So spread your wings
and take your flight.
For your work on earth
Is now over and done.



Fear not as you enter into
the brillant light.
Just spread your wings
and soar high like an eagle.
Soar towards the big blue sky,

An "amateur" breeder pulled up to our local animal shelter in a U-Haul and proceeded to unload 22 pit bull puppies, some as young as 3 weeks old. He had no use for them because they were not born the "right color." Their precious little souls were of no use because they were born black, brown, tan, and combinations of all. Because they weren't born "blue," the preferred color. The animal shelter doesn't adopt out pit bulls and all of the local rescue shelters are full. Please, please pray for these sweet little babies. You can read the full story here: wyff4.com Blessings, richard (and Dollie..;)

A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.........

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful

 

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.


5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.


6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it..


7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.


8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.


9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.


10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone.. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.


~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.


Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters.

Such a loss and emptyness feeling even though I know she is in a better place it still is difficult not to have her with me.  I will forever remember the good times we shared and truly and deepy miss her beautiful face and pretty blue eyes.

To whoever left the "Grieving Silently"  poem, I plan on using it on one of my memorial pages.  Hope you don't mind.  Athough it is sad, it is very true for my heart.  Thank you.

I still believe that miracles can happen every day,

I still think angels sometimes come to wipe our tears away.

When night seems darkest, I believe we'll see a light shine clear,

and when the storm is gone, I'm sure a rainbow will appear.

There is a time for tears. When your heart is too full of sorrow they begin to flow as free and naturally as rain from heaven.

There is a beauty in tears, a rightness about them. They should be shed proudly, for they show how much you have lived and loved and lost.

Tears honor our loved ones. There is a sacredness about them. Each one is a prayer that only God can hear. The soul could have no rainbows if our eyes could have no tears. @Hallmark Cards, Inc.

Hi Kelly and Jed. You are welcome and i hope you had a Happy Valentine's also. I don't know why Luke's memorial shows "private" as it has always been open to the public. I did check the settings and it is set at "open to the public". I will have to try and figure out why it is showing "private". Thankyou for letting me know.

Hugs
