12-24-2009 4:48 PM -- By: Henry, Critters.com memorial: Gretchen and Bailey Bleichert Memorial I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas ,and to wish you all the best in the New Year.I know there will be sad moments but we all have many great memories of our babies that are no longer with us and those memories will help us thru the sad times.

You have left us with many smiles and encouraging thoughts. Henry
12-24-2009 2:14 PM -- By: Carole Turner, Critters.com memorial: Ebony Turner Memorial I try not to ask for much, but I am now begging all of you to pray for my little Chihuahua boy Buster. I am at work and Dr. Guajardo just called me with the results of Buster's blood work last night. I am a wreck!!! I just found out that his kidney enzymes are dangerously high. June 2009 his enzyme level was 1.8, November it was 2.4 and yesterday's results show it is 5.5. There are four stages to kidney failure (stage 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.) The doctor just told me Buster is a high stage 4.
Buster has not been doing well the past couple months, and has lost .6 of a pound in five weeks, which is a lot for a little guy. My little boy is already on two types of meds, and we are now adding Azodyl and Amphogel, which will help reduce the phosphorous levels in his kidneys. I will everything in my power to keep him feeling as good as possible. I also will now have to take him to the vet a minimum of two times per week to be hydrated.
I've lost three of my babies in the past two years, and only by God's grace will I be able to handle losing another one. I am thankful that I have three days off to spend loving and carressing my little boy, as the doctor told me that things do not look good. This is not news I wanted to hear just before Christmas...we can only hope for the best. I am thankful I will have my little boy with me another holiday season.
I love you al and thank you fropm the bottom of my heart for all your support. I have not been on Critters like I want to for the past five months, as I've been working endless overtime at work. When I get home at night I have my hands full with my five pups and cat. By the time I get done with my "pet duties" it's time to go to bed. Not a day "ever" goes by that I don't think about all of you and your losses. I hold you in my heart and keep you in my prayers!
Have a blessed Christmas my wonderful Critter's family. We all have a bond that no one can ever take away from us. We have our precious babies to thank for that. I remember a saying that Richard (Dollie's daddy) said in her memorial that when Dollie departed she left him all her love, to share with others. That being said, thank you all for your love!

12-23-2009 6:06 PM -- By: dawnmarie, Critters.com memorial: Suzie Wong Memorial I would like on behalf of myself and my little angel Suzie Wong wish all of my Critters family a very Blessed Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New . I do not know how I have survived these times without my Suzie Wong and especially this time of year I just miss her so much. I want to thank you all for being my critters family, without you I do not know where I would be today. You have all given me strength and it is a blessing that I found this site and all of my critters family on this site. You truly know what it is to lose a family member our furbabies and I am truly blessed to have you all in my life. You have helped me through some very hard and sad times in my life and I hope I have also helped some of you to comfort you when you needed to be comforted. For all the new furbabies who have just gone to rainbow bridge and for those who are without their furbabies for the first time this Christmas I am sending a special prayer blessing to you all. May God Bless us everyone and our furbabies too!

12-23-2009 7:48 AM -- By: Sherri, Critters.com memorial: MADDIE Memorial Hi, everyone,
Well, the day BEFORE christmas eve. I hope everyone is not so taken in by the "mad rush", that there is no time for WHAT really matters. It is hard to find the peace and calm that we are supposed to be feeling with everyone saying RUSH! RUSH!, NO time left....... So little time is given,(as we know from our pets) and now we are told,"NO time left..Hurry!" AFTER the Holidays,(in the slump) we are talking of "killing time", So MUCH of it? Enough to kill? Soon enough, we look at our children, SUDDENLY grown up or our pets becoming elderly, and we say"WHERE did the time GO?" TIME is precious, treat it like gold.....Never spend it in a frivolous manner, even during the Holiday rush......
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good....MORNING!
A healthy & Happy ,(AND SAFE New Year, as well !!!!!!
Maddies mom, Sherri
12-22-2009 3:52 PM -- By: Brenda, Critters.com memorial: Garcia Memorial I just wanted to wish everyone here a very Merry Christmas and may your holidays be warmed with memories of your loved ones..
When my Garcia died I thought I would just die too...my heart broke in so many pieces. I blamed my vet...I just thought how could this have happened...he suggested I go to a support group..I thought me? I could never share this with anyone..stand up in front of everyone...no...then by some higher power I found you all...If it had not been for everyone on here..I don't think I would have made it..sure I had Peppy...but it just was not the same...I would like to take this time to thank you all some I remember like Sherri, Michelle, Robert, Dorothy, Henry..Charles. Laura . Vicki...and I am sure alot others that played an important part in bringing me where I am today...I know that you all will be here for me..and for that how do you find the words to express how complete strangers have added such comfort such peace to your heart...everyone who has ever wrote on Garcia's page thank you. and to the person who leaves such wonderful poems....thank you...whoever you are...you people are the best...I could not have asked for a more special understanding group...no one has given me the strength to go forward like you..Thank you from the bottom of my heart...Brenda, Peppy...and now Gracie...

KARLEY...you are loved to the moon & back...xoxoxo

12-18-2009 5:45 PM -- By: Deborah, Critters.com memorial: ~ Kia~ Sophia~Murphy Memorial Wishing every one a Safe and Happy Holiday Season and Best Wishes for the New Year...... Christmas days are busy days
And follow one upon the other.
But still, my mind keeps wandering,
And the tears I cannot smother.
I often think of days gone by,
Of Christmases that have past.
Sometimes I can't remember, That we have shared our last.
The packages are gaily wrapped,
The Christmas cards are posted.
The tree is up, the tinsel strung,
The chestnuts have been roasted.
And once again I see you, But I know that you're not too far.
For there you are atop my tree,
My own, my shining star!
And as the darkness settles in
And the lights again are lit,
My mind, at last, is quite content
I see you from wherever I sit.......always
12-18-2009 2:12 PM -- By: Gina, Critters.com memorial: Saada Memorial For my critters friends and family, I want to wish you all a very Blessed and Wonderful Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year. I am so thankful for your friendship and support, it has meant the world to me.
A Gift Of Paws
by Terri Onorato
In the silent Christmas morning my heart begins to
ache as feelings from the day you left dawn slowly with daybreak.
I say a prayer of grateful thanks for the life that I've been blessed
and ask for strength so that I might through pain find happiness.
God sent you as a present though not received on Christmas day,
a gift of paws that reached down deep and stole my heart away.
Tears are part of healing, each one shed will ease the pain, so that memories will come to mind in a most dynamic, ardent way.
I doubt that you would want me to spend this day in tears.
I know you'd rather see me smile as from atop a cloud you peer.
Though a time or two I've lost my way since the Keeper called you Home,
now faith restored by angel paws will never come undone. A loving aura fills the sky as you rest on clouds of fleece,
and angels gently tuck you in,
may you sleep in heavenly peace.
12-18-2009 7:32 AM -- By: Laura, Critters.com memorial: Dale Memorial For my wonderful Critters family with gratitude for your friendship and special thoughts of all your furbabies . . .
A Christmas Wish
Lights are glowing softly
on the lush, green Christmas tree,
and candles burn with lively flames
dancing just for me.
The house is oh so quiet
as my loved ones slumber deep,
it gives me pause to think of you
before I go to sleep.
I remember our first Christmas,
you were new and quite confused,
and concluded that it had to be
each gift was meant for you.
The contents did not matter
be it sweater, hat or game.
In your mind you were convinced
each tag spelled out your name.
I smile and recall fondly
how you humored me and wore
those silly reindeer antlers
that I found at the pet store.
But my favorite Christmas memory
that holds steadfast and true
is the kiss you placed upon my cheek
when I whispered, "I love you."
My deepest wish this Christmas,
your first one at Rainbow Bridge,
is that you're happy and content
along with all of God's bridge kids.
When Christmas morning dawns so bright
my first thought will be of you,
and right away I'll know
that you are thinking of me too.
Merry Christmas in Heaven . . .
