Dear Critters Family, "Old and New",

When my dog, Fayeroe, died, I was grief-stricken, broken, alone and cried 24 hours a day. I turned my computer on one day and Googled "grieving for a dog". Critters.com came up and I came here. Fayeroe and I found a home at Critters. Had I not had the love and support of the wonderful people here, I don't know what I would have done. Later I added my wonderful "main man dog", Tippy, and he has been just as loved as Fayedy.

When I tried to talk  about Faye to my friends and family, they either didn't reply or changed the subject. I could not believe that life was going on when I had lost my best friend, Fayeroe. Here at Critters, everyone picked me up, let me cry and cried with me. I was heard.

One of the best part of my days, my hours, my nights, was turning my computer on and going to my email inbox because there might be a notification that Fayeroe's guestbook had a new message in it! And it was very, very rare that I didn't have at least one notification...some days 6-8 posts in her guestbook. I don't know if all of the people who supported us know how much that really meant to me. You kept me going. You   gave me strength. I love each and every one who helped us so much.

Fayeroe died in 2009 and Tippy, in 2001.  This is 2013 and it is just as important for me to be here now, writing welcome and sympathy messages as it was for me to receive those messages in 2009. It is just as important for me to "wish happy birthdays and angel days" now as it is to receive them for Fayeroe & Tip every year.

I still get excited when I get an email from Critters. I hope   as you find your home here with us at Critters that you will stop in and send   notes  to  new members and also those who welcome you.   Everyone needs   love and support.

Our welcoming "committee" is small now   but  we all have broad shoulders and open hearts.  xoxoxoxo Pat, Fayeroe and Tippy

On Sunday11/4/2012 We had to have Bubba put down. Buuba is the brother to Sage and we miss them both. We know that Bubba and Sage are enjoying their time playing and having fun at the bridge. Sage was so hard but left suddenly, Bubba fought long and hard to stay with us and actually was arguing with Sage for the past week while she was calling him. Today there was no choice left Bubba had to join Sage. I hope them both well and we will see them soon.

My sweet, faithful Poppy passed away on Saturday, October 27. She was a few steps behind me when she cried out, collapsed, and died right there. My heart aches constantly, and even though I have two other beautiful dogs, I dread coming home from work and not seeing her in the window, waiting for me. I love and miss her so much.

Momma loves her good, good girl.

ANOTHER LOSS...

Five years ago, I lost the prettiest little tortoiseshell kitten, Toaster. Literally 1 day shy of Toaster's "angel anniversary,”  her mommy Lena had to be put down (Sunday, Oct 21). I was very attached to Toaster, even though she died at only 2 months. Part of this reason looking back is because I felt that I lost a part of Lena that day. It took me a very very long time to finally stop crying. Well, now it has happened. I have lost my Lena. Lena is a spitting image of Toaster. They were so much alike. Lena and Toaster were so affectionate and comforting and showed endless love. Lena was a stray when I first met her. I saw her in my yard one day and thought "I wish she was my kitty!" Well, a year later she came up to me and we were inseparable ever sense. I had Lena for 7 unforgettable years, but she is expected to be at least 8-11. Please visit "Toaster's feline friends and family" page to see my memorial for Lena and her video. I ask for your prayers of comfort, as I am really having a hard time missing my Lena, but at least I know she has reunited with her baby Toaster!

My dear beloved Lucymae passed away on Oct. 10th at about 2pm. She was my soul mate, my best friend, my constant companion. I miss my dog Lucymae dearly. The pain can be unbearable at times. I had her for 16 long years. She lived a good life. I always promised her I would have her put to sleep in her own home and I would be right by her side. That's exactly what happened. I kneeled down by her side with my husband. We both held hands and put our hands on Lucymae as she took her last breath. I wihispered in her ear, "Mommmy loves you" as I have many times before. She was a pitbull beagle mix and was so adorable, fun and so loving. I see her with angels wings flying and running around with all the other critters that left this earth. I miss her dearly.

 My Zoey passed last night 9/27.  Hit by a car...on the sidewalk!!!  Go Figure, not even safe on the sidewalk.  I know that she is in a better place, catching the squirrels, but in the meantime, I just can't seem to get passed the tears.


09-13-2012 7:53 PM -- By: Nancy,    Critters.com memorial:   Snowy Kelly Memorial
Snowy died yesterday. And now I am trying to make it through the day. I miss her.I miss her kisses. I miss her hugs and the feel of her against my chest. I'm still in shock over the fact that she is no longer here. Thank you to all of you who stopped by and signed her guestbook. You have been so good with me and my Picky. Now I had to add Snowy to the memorial. everyone else is  carrying on like nothing happened. And I'm sitting here in a  puddle of tears wondering how in the world they can just go on and not care.

I miss you Snowy

Mommy :0(

I wanted to Thank all of my Critters Family who have visited Jetta's memorial.  I know Shawn appreciates it as well as I.

I just paid to sponsor Jetta's memorial because I want her to "live on" on Critters where I and everyone can visit Jetta's memorial. 

Thank You all again and now Jetta will stay online forever with our own furkids.


07-23-2012 9:00 PM -- By: Charles,    Critters.com memorial:   Sammy Memorial

My Dearest Critters Family .. I was just notified by another Critters Family Friend, Shawn (Marley's dad) that his foster girl Jetta of only four (4) days had to be put down because she had parvo.  Shawn is totally devastated.

Shawn e-mailed me last week to tell me he was going to foster Jetta and boy, was Shawn excited to bring her home .. if only for a few days, Jetta knew what it felt like to be loved and spoiled and siblings to play with.

I ask my Critters Family to please watch for Jetta's memorial and please visit and send Shawn a message.  As I read his e-mail letting me know about Jetta, I had many tears streaming down my cheeks because I knew in my heart that Shawn truly loved "his Girl Jetta" ... Jetta was HIS ...

I know Jetta was welcomed to Rainbow Bridge by my Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M and all of your beautiful furkids.

My dear sweet Rubee Lu passed away 1 week ago today.  I miss her so much.  My heart is aching for her.  I long to rub her round little tummy, kiss her neck and rub her toes.  I hope you will stop by and see her memorial.  She was a very special girl.


06-05-2012 5:25 PM -- By: Ruth,    Critters.com memorial:   Rubee Lu Memorial
On Thursday, May 30, 2012 we lost our most beautiful little Rubee Lu.  She was a happy, loving little Yorkshire Terrier.  She brought us so much joy.  It is my mission to encourage dog owners and Veterinary Workers everywhere to educate themselves on what to do if a dog is choking.  Rest in peace our little angel!
