I am writing this on Sunday, January 3rd at 9:28am.  Since it can take sometimes days until these entries are posted I wanted to provide real-time date.

Richard, thank you for taking the time to post this for our Critter's family “yesterday morning”. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your support and prayers.
Buster came home last night because I didn't want him to stay in the cage at the vets alone until Monday. They send a technician in to check on the pets frequently, but I don't want him afraid or traumatized right now.
 
The prognoses are not good, unless a miracle happens.
 
I am an emotional mess my friends. My little boy Buster was at the vet all day Saturday, January 2nd, on IV's. They gave him fluids containing electrolytes, vitamin B12 and antibiotics. He's also taking Ampho-Gel, Azodyl, Epakitin, Metoclopramide and a special diet. I have to take him back again Monday morning before work and they are going do it all over again all day. He is comfortable right now and sleeping in his bed right here beside me.
 
Doctor Guajardo told me last night that he doesn't think we have much longer. It is now pretty much day by day. He said that if Buster goes back downhill next week, after his 'second boost" Monday, we will have to discuss what our next step will be. I know what that discussion will be about, and I am sick over it. All I can do is pray for a miracle. I know you all understand, I cried all the way home from the vets, and then broke down again after I got home. I woke up crying in the middle of the night, and woke up and cried again this morning....I am crying now as I write this.
 
My heart is weak and broken...I am broken. I can't eat...can't sleep...I just don't know sometimes how we make it through this gut-wrenching grief. It amazes me...the power we have within us! Like many other people, I chose to live my life and be dedicated to rescuing and loving neglected, unwanted and abused pets. I've been blessed with so many pets in my life, and for that I will be thankful forever. My grief is insignificant compared to the love I’ve receive from all of them.
 
The grief we bear...it's worth every ache, every tear for the joy our angels give us while they are here. I am still not over my recent loss of MaggieMae in August, so this is a very challenging.

I love you all, and thank you for understanding and still visiting my angels and me while I haven't been able to be on critters like I want to. Bless you all! I could not do this without you. With much gratitude, Carole.

Dearest Critters Family  I was just reflecting on our friendship and wanted to let you know how much it means to me. Your thoughtfulness always makes my days a little brighter, and problems seem a whole lot smaller. You have a knack for always saying the right things. I'm so lucky to have found all of you. What would I ever do without you?God Bless you all each and every one of you for being my Rock.                              Praying that the New Year brings you Health and Happiness. Love always Maureen aka Sweepsmamma

I only hope I can be half as good a friend to you. It's people like you who make a difference in this world!

Much love,

I once again ask for the prayers of the Critters Family for our dear friend, Carole Turner, and her precious little boy, Buster. They're on their way to the vet right now and things look dim. Thank you in advance. Love, ricky and Dollie.

Rocky passed on over the rainbow bridge last night.  I held him in my arms as he moved on - I knew from his eyes that he was ready to go but it is still so hard for me to comprehend.

May our angels be dancing on the clouds as the New Year arrives. They will be singing and hugging each other as they know the mommies & daddies will be with them one day. Peace be with all my critters families. Know that our wonderful Father is taking care of our babies and prepares a place for us. Love in Christ.

To ALL My Dearest Critters Family ... I take this time to wish each of you and your families a wonderful New Year.  May you all be blessed with good health and prosperity. 

Each of you have given me friendship and I will always cherish that friendship ... for if it was not for all of you who visited my babies' memorial and always your kind words .. I don't know if I would be here today.  As most know, my babies are "my everything" and when Sammy headed to Rainbow Bridge ... I thought I would go with him because we shared a love that I have NEVER shared with another human ....  He loved me unconditionally and I loved him to the very end and will continue to love him, Gabby and Bob M a/k/a Macaroni.  Each of them gave me their own "special" love.

Thank You again for being my Critters Family ... and I hope you know that I appreciate each of youl.

Charles, Cupcake and Xander  .... sending HAPPY NEW YEAR'S wishes to all.


12-29-2009 11:30 PM -- By: Fran,    Critters.com memorial:   Sydney Justine Memorial
I am very thankful that my friend Christine told me of this site. She is the mom of Missy Bear. You have all helped to ease my pain and my loss by your kind words. Thank you for the poem as well. I am sure you know that I cry when I read your comments and your poem, but it a good cry. A cry that hopefully sends my teardrops to kiss my sweet Sydney's face and let her know that her mommy thought and thinks of her every day......and she knows, my mom kissed me today, and sends her love and hugs my way, and then she runs and plays with her friends in heaven, and knows that one day I will walk across the bridge to hold her once again.......and our love will be as before--- total and complete.  With much love to all of you, and my prayers and thanks

Fran/ Sydney's mommy forever

This was my lst christmas without gypsy rose. It just did not feel the same at all. Some days are easier than others-I try to stay busy and then little things all around me make me think of so many memories. It is so hard because i do not have children and her and tinker are like my kids. I will always love her so much, and tinker is helping me thru this, but it's just not the same. CC


12-25-2009 11:38 PM -- By: Joy,    Critters.com memorial:   Angel Memorial
A big "thank you" to all who stopped by on Taffy's 4th Angel Day...it was a rough day but knowing so many remembered and cared did make me smile.

Wishing my Critters family  a holiday season filled with peace, love and joy :) Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy 2010!!

xoxo Joy :)

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. They are playing and in no pain, waiting for the time we see them again.  I also thank all that have visited over the past year,leaving wonderful messages and verses, or just saying hi. You have left us with many smiles and encouraging thoughts. Henry

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!

I'm asking everyone in the Critters Family to Please pray for Carole Turner and her little boy, Buster. He is dangerously close to kidney failure. Carole, as most of you know, is the proud mommie of Ebony, Shabba Lou, and Maggie Mae Turner, all Critters residents. Thank you all and may God bless you.
