08-05-2009 8:55 AM -- By: Tracy White, Critters.com memorial: TUFFY BRAZUE Memorial Our Tuffy was having strokes and after doing a sonogram we were told she had a mass on her liver. We went holistic and gave her everything we thought would help her. She was amazing and bounced back from every stroke and obstacle put in her way. She was diagnosed in Feb. and she passed away on May 1st after a horrible night of pain and suffering.
She was brave to the end just like her sister Charly Bear who passed away March 25th the previous year. I only hope when it is time for me to die I have the strength and fearlessness that my beautiful girls had. The things they taught me when life was slowly fading will never be forgotten. Our brave girls are missed, loved and NEVER forgotten.
08-04-2009 11:12 PM -- By: Lisa, Critters.com memorial: Sheeba Memorial I am back again as I am every night about this time to browse the site, read guestbook entries and to end my day looking at pictures of my baby. I don't always write often but I feel truly lucky to have found such great people to help me through this tough time. People ask me why I come here "torture" myself and I try to explain that after I come here to read guestbook entries and spend five minutes here at critters ultimately I feel a little better. I almost feel as if Sheeba is around me telling me it will be okay.
Thanks again for helping me to try and get through this very tough time.
08-02-2009 11:59 PM -- By: Lisa, Critters.com memorial: Sheeba Memorial I want my baby back so bad! It's only 4 days since I last held her and thanked her for the almost 15 great years but I still hear her walking through the house and picture her at the foot of my bed. I have never hurt so much before and wonder when I can think about her without sobbing uncontrollably.
I constantly come to critters.com to see her pictures. I know that everyone here is experiencing the same loss and I also feel a sense of comfort here because of that. Life seems so different now, there is an overwhelming emptiness in my life. I have a husband and two children that I love but none of them give me what Sheeba did and that is the unconditional love and happiness that She brought.

07-30-2009 2:23 PM -- By: Jacqueline Daniels, Critters.com memorial: COSMO M. DANIELS Memorial Dear critter family, today seems to be a very very bad day. I miss my baby so much and the pain is unbearable. He was the only family i had, and the guilt is killing me. I had to watch him take his last breath. I quess its been rough because his birthday is coming up, and its been on my mind. but i don't know how i'll make it throught this day and weeks to come with out him.
07-30-2009 10:21 AM -- By: Sherri, Critters.com memorial: MADDIE Memorial Hi! and a BIG thank you to Sharon for all her help due to the crazy probs. of my pc. from Maddie and her mommy, Sherri.
Also thanks so much to everyone who visited last night and this morning. I THINK I have gotten back to everyone.
I did leave a message on the board yesterday but it came through as TILLY MEMORIAL instead of Maddie. Dont know what happened.
I was hopeing to meet some of the Maltese babies and the moms and dads, but, just as Maddie would have it, most of her visits were made by the larger breeds and the moms and dads. Maddie was amazed by larger dogs, she thought she was big, and fell madly in love with a lab at the vets once!
I Love the Maltese breed, I have had two maltese babies, Maddie & baby scruffy,[in the christmas card photo] But I also love almost all other breeds,as well, as Maddie did.
I have been looking for another Maltese baby or MAYBE maltipoo, just dont know if I can do this . I still miss her, little Maddie, SOOO much. I have loved ALL my dogs, many diff. breeds , over the years BUT that little girl, Maddie took a a chunk of my heart when she parted this life. I really doubt that she was canine, I think of her just as you would think of a human.
Anyone with opinions on getting the SAME breed of pup again? Would it be too painful? I am just drawn to the little white furballs with the BIG personality. Maddie, what do you think?
All the best,
Sherri, ALWAYS Maddies Mommy

07-27-2009 3:40 PM -- By: Bill, Critters.com memorial: Lucy Memorial Today is Lucy's 6 month day and it seems like it just happened! Whenever I think of my best little friend it still tears me up. I miss her so much it hurts. My rescue boxer "Baby" is making very slow progress but it is progress and it doesw distract me from Lucy for awhile....but not for very long. Like I said before...right now I have a companion...but not the compaqnionship I had with Lucy...not just yet anyway. About ten days ago I saw for the first time a fleeting spark of "happy" in Baby after she had finished her business outside in the morning. She had a happy bounce to her run instead of fear. As quick as it was it was great to see. I know that someday we will overcome her fear but I also know I will never get over the emptiness of Lucy not being by my side. If anyone has a moment please stop by and say hey to my girl I know she would love it. thanks Bill
07-26-2009 11:17 PM -- By: Annette (Stimpy's Mama), Critters.com memorial: Stimpy Memorial Hello Everyone!!
I just wanted to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all my special friends who visited my boy, Stimpy's memorial and left such beautiful Happy Birthday wishes for him and many words of comfort for me to help me through this difficult day. I am forever greatful for all the many caring friends I have made here at Critters since my boy's passing. I seriously don't know how I would have gotten through those extremely difficult days. God Bless you all...you and your beautiful babies are always in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless and take care.
07-26-2009 2:36 PM -- By: June, Critters.com memorial: Obsidian Memorial To all my friends at Critters. I'm so sorry that I haven't posted anyone for quite some time. My site has been down because of lack of funds. I was paying monthly and just could not swing it for a couple months. But I am happy to say it should be up again next week. To all the people who have lost a Fur-Baby these past few months my heart goes out to you, and to all whom have celebrated a birthday or angel day, I hope you had a huge celebration. Also the fact that it can be very, very sad to visit this site, not only for the Fur-Babies but for those who have lost one, I think about Obsidian every day and even after a year and 1/2 it's still painful. But anyway, I can't wait to see her beautiful face again once my site is back up. Hugs to all, June
07-25-2009 9:06 PM -- By: Leigh, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit Memorial Words alone can not even begin to express how all of you who have written your words of encouragement, caring thoughts and love for me , Little Bit and for Miss Lizzie comfort us so much. I am so very touched by your kindness and prayers. Its been a hard journey for Miss Lizzie and I , we can only hope that her severe seizures can be brought under control. Each time she suffers from them, we lose a little more of her. You have each suffered such a loss yourselves but yet you have reached out to help us in our time of need, God Bless each and everyone of you. There are Angels on Earth too as I found many in our freindships here. And all of the wonderful furbaby angels who are all comforting Little Bits and all praying together too for Miss Lizzie. I wish to thank each and everyone of you and let you know that I have a long list of prayers I go thru daily for all of our babies. I also thank you for continuing your watchfulness over Little Bit for me as I have been not able to visit with her as often as I wish, I feel so grateful she is remembered by all her freinds and their moms and dads for me. We are trying a new medication now and since this is only day 4 on it, we have a way to go before we know if it will help stabilize Miss Lizzie or not. This amazing girl has found her own way into our hearts and we love her dearly , we pray we dont lose her , but also that we dont do more harm than good.
Once again, God Bless all of you my freinds and Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Little Bit, Miss Lizzie and Leigh

07-22-2009 12:20 PM -- By: pat, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial I wanted to stop by here and tell you that an angel has sponsored Fayeroe's memorial! I am so grateful as my situation, as some of you know, has taken a downturn financially. This town is so small that the jobs are fewer than hen's teeth. I didn't even know if hens have teeth......I guess that is where the saying came from..they have none!
I want to tell my angel "THANK YOU" from the bottom of my heart.

07-21-2009 6:37 PM -- By: marlene, Critters.com memorial: Sammie Patterson Memorial Hello Critters family.
Like several others, I've not been coming to the site for the past few months. It was becoming too painful and I was moving into depression. Feeling better and will visit more, just not on a regular basis. Reading all of the stories of loss of a dear fur baby has proven too much for me, at least for now.
For all who are mourning the loss of a dear little one, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. It's been 6 months since Sammie's passing, and each day is still difficult without her here.
To all who have celebrated your fur baby's birthday, blessings to you on their day of birth for a very special joy entered your life on that day. To those who have marked a passing, my deepst condolences.
Take care to all of you.
With much love and tenderness

07-19-2009 11:19 AM -- By: Suzie & Keto Boy, Critters.com memorial: KETO BOY Memorial My thoughts and prayers to all my critters families. I think the times have got us all depressed and saddened over the economy but I know our faith in God and each other will keep us strong. Prayers to those who have lossed their babies and to those who are remembering their friends past. I know I continue to hurt over not being able to hold my angel baby but take consolation in knowing I will be with him again soon. Love in Christ to all my critters family. Hello Puck Lewis and mommie hugs and kisses to you both.
We have to somehow stay strong and never forget God loves us so very much.
07-18-2009 2:22 PM -- By: pat and fayeroe and Tippy, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial When my daughter's sweetie, Patti LaBelle, died, Connie was absolutely on her knees with grief. Someone suggested she see a psychic and ask her if Belle was okay and free of pain from the bone cancer.
The psychic told Connie that our pets always return to us in the form of another pet. She said that she would have other pets but Belle's spirit would be very much in the heart of the new baby.
I always believed that Fayeroe had Tooter's spirit and part of her heart in her. I am now convinced that Clementine has a big part of Fayeroe with her.
This soothes me and I hope it helps my family here.
07-17-2009 5:44 PM -- By: Janice, Duke and Family at RB, Critters.com memorial: Duke Memorial My Dearest Critters Family,
I am very apologetic for not visiting the site like I use to. I was very regular, but that has changed in the past few months. I have not forgotten anyone, and I love you all very very much. My thoughts and prayers are with your fur children who have passed over in recent times. My God bless them, and envelope them in his love, and almighty goodness and kindness forever and all eternity. Much love, hugs and kisses to those fur babies that have passed over in the past few months especially, and to those whom I know, all my love to you too.
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL THE JULY FUR BABIES! MAY YOUR SPECIAL DAYS BE FILLED WITH ALL THE HAPPINESS AND LOVE THAT ANYONE OR ANYTHING CAN IMAGINE! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!
Also, should I forget to acknowledge each of you individually, I wish you all respectively, for the month of July, A VERY HAPPY ANGEL ANNIVERSARY TO ALL YOU PRECIOUS, LOVING FUR BABIES! You were all God's gift to this world.
07-17-2009 1:34 PM -- By: pat, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial I am so sorry that i haven't been here as much as i was earlier.....i'm having a really bad time right now, personally, and i'm very depressed. the economy has got me in a bind and i may have to drop both of the memorials here. the only job that i found here is 18 hours a week at the library.
somedays it seems too much to work through. i miss everyone and will resume posting on everyone's thread as soon as i can get over this depression.
keep me in your thoughts. Pat...fayeroe and tippy's human
