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...

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 . . .

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.

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.
