She is having an incredibly hard time adjusting, and feel tremendous guilt for having her put to sleep, even though the vet said it was the right thing to do.
She finds comfort in your messages. God bless you all, and your precious pets.

12-15-2009 11:18 PM -- By: Richard Cothran , Critters.com memorial: Dollie Memorial Back on October
16, 1994, the good
Lord entrusted the
earthly life of a tiny
little angel to me. I
chose the name of
Dollie for this
precious little gurl.
After twelve and a
half years of
rewards of the
blessing that I ever
only to Him, He
decided that it was
time to relocate
her to her eternal
home, in Glory, the
place where she'll
happy, and in His
presence. I was
sure that He'd send
a guardian angel
to comfort me, to
understand, to lean
upon, to depend
consolation. I had
enough faith that
He'd provide such
an angel to guide
me through the
darkest days of my
life. But He never
sent this angel that
I so badly needed,
that I so strongly
desired. Instead, in
His awesome glory,
like He Always
does, He looked far
beyond my wants,
far beyond my
what I needed. No,
not A guardian
angel, an entire
family of them. He
told me what their
name would be.
They would be
known as The
Critters Family. As
always, He was
right. And I thank
Him every day for
His goodness in
doing so. I want
you, every one of
you, to know that I
love you, respect
you, thank God and
pray His Very best
for you and your
loved ones. I wish
a very Merry
Christmas to all of
my "brothers and
sincerely wish you
a happy new year.
A year filled with
Sincerely and with
lots of hugs and
12-15-2009 1:48 PM -- By: Joe & Efren, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial I have sad news to tell everyone that has prayed for my Rocky. This morning after a long night of praying and worring I had to let my Rocky go home to Rainbow's Bridge. I had a long talk with the Vet and he informed me that he had looked into everything and talk to other vet all over. After the talk I knew there was nothing more I could do. It was very hard for me to have my Baby Rocky put to sleep. I pray that he forgives me it was so painful for me. He was surround by family and his Vet and staff. He went very peacefully. My heartaches with his lose. It been very emotional for me today. But Rocky is now at peace. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and thoughts of my Baby Boy Rocky. He is running free at Rainbow's Bridge with his Daddy Rocco, his mother Bella and his little brothers and sister. Thank you all for being with us during this hard time. God bless you all.

Love from myself, Duke and all our fur babies family here at my home, and at Rainbow Bridge.
12-15-2009 8:57 AM -- By: Joe & Efren, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial Today is a very hard day for me. I have to go see my baby at the hospital and say good bye after almost 15 years together we will be apart. I never knew such a bond as with this little guy. We have been through so much together and always by my side. I feel that in the dictionary under the word Unconditional they should have pictures of all the dogs in the world. Rocky has fought hard but his body does not seem to be able to respond. Last week Thursday when he cam I thought we had won the battle, but on Saturday his body begain to swell up with liquids. We have tried everything, to make the swelling go down but as of last night nothing had changed. As I slept last night for about the 3rd night in a row I see Rocco sitting in a path looking down like as if he is awaiting for something. I feel that dream is telling me that he is waiting to take Rocky home to Rainbow's Bridge. This is so hard for me I as that you pray to give me strength I feel so bad about doing this but in my heart I know it is for the best. Rocky please forgive me. Once again Thank you all for your support and prayers and love you have sent. You all mean the world to Rocky and myself and Efren.
12-15-2009 8:19 AM -- By: Elizabeth, Critters.com memorial: Roo Memorial Thank you to everyone for the beautiful wishes on my baby's birthday yesterday. It was a very difficult day for me but all your sweet and thoughtful messages helped me through little by little. I hope Roo is having a joyful time with your Angel's.

12-13-2009 11:36 PM -- By: Crystal, Pet's name: Kasen,Trixie,Kasey,Midnight,Missy,Bubbles Thanks to everyone who have visited my fur babies memorials on Critters.com over the last couple of months, I am sorry that I haven't been able to visit everyone as I am having a extremely hard time with losing two young furbabies 3 days apart and I hadn't even gotten over losing another young baby the year before. Boy I have had a great life with several babies and losing them was hard and hurt but we had so many memories together that within time I was able to see the happy times instead of all the hurt of losing them. Losing these young ones has taken a toll on me and I am not sure I will ever get to the happier times we shared when I do it is so upsetting that there wasn't more. Thanks and hopefully one day I will get there and be able to visit everyone.
Joe, Efren and Rocky you are in my prayers. I am so sorry and I know the pain you must be going through.
12-13-2009 10:29 AM -- By: Joe & Efren and Rocky, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial It is to my regret to inform all our friends here at Critters.com. Yesterday at 12 noon Rocky was rushed to the emergency hospital. His whole little body was swelling up so very fast. His little legs were double in size and his face was starting to swell. I decided to leave him at the hospital over night and see if anything possible could be done. This morning when I called the hospital I was informed that now not only his leg, and face were swollen but it had now spread to other parts of this body. There giving him the best treatment possible. But now I have to decided if it has gone past his quaility of life with all this happening. Yes I will have to decided something I as very scared to do. Being that he is my best friend. I have asked my self am I being selfish? I know I have tried everything, I have been told that. But it still does not help I seem to want more? Well please do not forget my Rocky still pray for him this is a time for mircles. And I know that. Please keep my Rocky in your prayers and also pray for me to make the right decsion for my baby. Once again thank you all for being part of our family. Hugs and lots of love to all of you.

I just wanted to take this time to say "Thank you so much" to all my sweet friends here at Critters for all the caring wishes they have left on my baby boy, Stimpy's memorial page.

12-08-2009 10:08 PM -- By: joe, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial Just wanted to tell every one saying prayers for my Baby Rocky, he is still in the hospital he is doing better bu still not out of the woods. The Doctor said if he is a little better tomorrow he may come home. I am keeping the faith, and all the prayers said for him. The only Christmas gift for me this year would be to have him with me but I dont want to be selfish and if he is suffering I would hope he goes to sleep and wakes up at Rainbow's Bridge with his Daddy Rocco to play with. Thanks for all the prayers and love you have all sent to me, I can not say thank you so much I owe you a lot. I ask for you to keep him in your prayers. I will keep you posted and updated here in the forum. Once again thank you all so very much. Luavern your an angel I love you for being there and being such a good friend, best friends forever. We love you all very much thanks again.

12-07-2009 9:42 PM -- By: Joy, Critters.com memorial: Angel Memorial Hi My Dear Critters Family ~
I wanted to stop by to say THANK YOU to all my dear friends and critters family who stopped by to wish my Angel a Happy Angel Day and Happy Birthday...it means the world to me to know that others remember her on her special days :) It has been 10 years since her passing but not a day goes by that I don't think of her and her feline siblings Patches, Taffy & Pumpkin that are at the Bridge...it makes it easier to know that she is in good company until one day we meet again. I will touch base as soon as I can but thanks from the bottom of my heart for all the love that is always shown...I was truly blessed the day I came upon critters!!
I haven't had much time online but would like to say that all my dear critters friends and family are always close to my heart. I know the holidays are looked at as a time of joy but along with the joy it is a time of remembrance of those who have gone on before us and it can be very difficult. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with ALL (my friends and those I've yet to meet in my absence which was quite a bit of this last year) with beloved babies here on critters always but especially through the holidays. Love and blessings to all....Joy
12-07-2009 8:23 PM -- By: Joe and Efren , Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial Efren and I would like to thank you all for the prayers for our little Rocky special thanks to Lauvern who made this possible by being there when we needed her. And really everyone here is special. Rocky is still with us but he is very weak hid Doctor is trying everything to keep Rocky with us but it is a touch and go, mostly because of his age. But he has who I know is the best Doctor in the world who I trust. I know and have come to understand that if Rocky takes his trip home his Daddy Rocco will come for him and take him home. That is a promise Rocco gave to me before he went home to Rainbows Bridge and I know one day they will both come for me and we will be together eternally. I know that because God made that promise.
Once again thank each one of you for taking time out and keeping my Little baby Rocky in your prayers Lauvern your a great friend and thanks so much for being there for me. I told Rocky about all the emails and even his Doctor said Rocky is very lucky to have all you as friends. Lauvern Rocky sends a very special message from his heart. Thank you for being a friend to me (Rocky) and my Daddy Joe and Efren your the best BIG TAIL WAG and lots of lick (loving kisses).
Thanks you all so very much from the bottom of our hearts, we love you all for being there in our time of need.
We will keep you posted here in the forum.

12-07-2009 8:12 AM -- By: Lauvern and Luke, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial Hi Critters Family. I would like to ask you all to please keep Rocco's son "Rocky" in your thoughts and prayers as he is 14 years old and not doing too well. I know Joe and Efren would appreciate all of your support. Thankyou so much .......... Hugs
12-05-2009 5:00 PM -- By: Ruth, Critters.com memorial: BooBoo Memorial I'm feeling very sad too today. It's been a year and a month since Boo left us. I still cry when I look at his picture and still see him in all his favorite spots. I wish we could relive just one of the good days with our beloved "angel" furkids. Maybe it would make the loss easier. It's nice to be able to come here and find support and knowing that so many others know exactly what you are experiencing.
12-05-2009 7:08 AM -- By: Laura, Critters.com memorial: Dale Memorial I don't know where it came from, but someone posted the loveliest Christmas story on Dale's wall! I, like everyone else on this site, haven't been looking forward to the holidays without Dale by my side, waiting for his special Christmas stocking. It's not that I don't have so much to be thankful for - beginning, of course, with my daughter's health (and thank you so much to everyone for your love and concern), my home, my Critters family . . . it's just that you find yourself reaching for something to take away that loneliness. I try to imagine all of our furbabies at the Bridge, decorating the heavens for the holidays, thinking how pleased they must be with theirselves - isn't that just like them? So to whoever created that lovely story, thank you from the bottom of my heart and may you have a Christmas full of wishes that come true, love that surrounds you and a peace that is beyond any understanding -
12-04-2009 7:40 PM -- By: Brenda, Critters.com memorial: Garcia Memorial I want to thank everyone that stopped by to wish me and garcia and my family a Happy Thanksgiving...I know I have a new little girl now but somehow its not the same..I know that garcia had a hand in guiding me to her...but every day I cry...she reminds me so much of him....I should have gotten a different breed..this is so hard to look at her...I just want to hold her all the time and close my eyes and pretend its him...the holidays are coming up and they are all firsts without my precious baby...I know Richard what you are going thru..sometimes I am at work and all of a sudden the tears just come...no warning..
Am I being fair to her...??? everyone says things will get better..I am glad it rescued her from that awful place...and she is so loveable...she is starved for attention...I hope I did not rush into this....Pep seems to like her...he growls at her now and then..but for the most part he now has someone he can watch..since he is deaf ..he looked to Garcia for everything...now he seems to watch her.....I know in my mind I did the right thing...but my heart..my heart still is empty...if anyone can offer any advice...I am all ears...

11-30-2009 4:56 PM -- By: Caren, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial Gypsy passed away on 11/16/09. I still can't believe shes not here. She had so many little habits that i miss. my english bulldog misses her too. She follows me around everywhere instead of napping the day away. I think she thinks we left with gypsy one day and we did not come back and she knows something is not the same. Gypsy was my lst baby, i feel a empty spot in my heart and my life. I do not work so i was home alot. I feel guilty for loving tinker bell our bull. Is that wrong? Will we every get over our loss? I'm not crying all the time now but feel numb-But i still cry at moments during the day. Any help would be greatly appreciated in how to deal with our little angels. I'm hoping to see her one day in heaven. cc
11-29-2009 1:55 PM -- By: Sherri, Critters.com memorial: MADDIE Memorial To all my Critters friends,
As we move into this very hectic season,(SO fast now, there used to be this nice lull between thanksgiving and Christmas, now its nearly one and the same)I hope all of us will make the effort to see and feel just WHAT is important, I know I am as guilty as anyone...trying to GET IT ALL DONE, more&more each year, it seems, and loosing track of just in WHAT order of importance. Is going to that one party that you wish you never said YES to as important as spending one last evening at home with your fur-child in the glow of your own tree on your own sofa? WHAT if you KNEW it was to be ONE LAST TIME? well, we never KNOW, so we must live each day so that we will never regret loosing that ONE LAST NIGHT to something silly or stupid. Happened to me last Holiday season.....I just didnt realize.
