To all of those who lost friends this past year...may 2009 bring you peace and comfort.

It has been a little over a year since we lost our dear friend Doogie. We still miss him terribly however we now refect on the good times and remember mostly  his quirky nature and things he did to amuse us. We have put the all the bad memories aside and they only sneak back in occassionally.

For those of you who have had a recent loss, I promise you it gets better with time. It is never easy but it does get better. At first it is a crushing pain and feels you may never get over it, but you will...Over time the good memories start to dominate the recent bad ones and begin to squeeze them out of your everyday thoughts.  They will always be in your thoughts, but try and remember all the love and good times they gave to you. Doogies Mom, Dad, and "sister Maxiluna".

Midnight Blessings at the Bridge

Twas the stroke of Midnight and all through Rainbow bridge,

Not a single fur child sleeping for  there were many hugs and good tidings to give. The squeals of laughter could be heard from miles around, then suddenly a hush fell over the town.

It was the voice of an angel, truly it was, as he stepped forward and said "Thank you God for I am not hungry every night when I go to bed."

Then Simon stepped forward and proceeded to say, "Thank you Lord Jesus I got my present on Christmas Day!" Kit-cat came just in time for Christmas of course.

Just then Little Inky and Willow chimed in at the same time "and Thank you so much Dusty we love you for being our very own Dusty horse!"

Each child gazed at each other with love filled eyes, "Thank you mostly for the love of our parents and the friends by our sides." Happy New Year!!!!!! Love, Christy, Greta, Dusty, Angel, and Hammy Sagar!!!!

Happy New Year our dear Critters family! We are thankful every day that we have a place to come where we can "let our feelings truly show", and not be judged. The impact our companions have on our lives...even after...is something so special it's hard to describe in words. We've bonded here and supported each other from all over the world. We appreciate you!

Thank you Marc and Sharon for providing us such a lovely place where we are able to seek support from people who truly understand our grief, to share our stories and keep our angel's memories alive.  May every one of you have a blessed and prosperous new year!!!

Happy New Year to all our Critters family. We've all met through losing our loved ones, and although that is so very heart-breaking...I am thankful I've come to know people like you who have such love and honor for their pets, and who truly understand the level of grief we experince when we say goodbye to our precious angels. I could not have made it this far without all of you. We couldn't be more proud to call you our friends. Luv, Ebony and family.

Happy New Year to my critters family. You have all helped me so so much to get through this terrible time without my precious girl and I am forever thankful to all of you!  Please celebrate tonight and be safe!Stacy

P.S. For those of you who have asked how my kitten Stimpy is doing, last week he stopped eating while he was still on his last rounds of meds, so the vet pulled him off of them.  This Friday, he may have to spend the entire day at the vet's office so they can check his urine to see how he is doing.  We are hopeful that he had taken enough meds to cure his bacterial infection, but we won't know for sure until he is checked.  Please keep good thoughs for us!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my friends at Critters, and especially to our Babies at the Bridge. It's been snowing all day here in MA. But I think it's white confetti, that means our Fur-Kids are having one heck of a New Years Eve bash. Thanks to everyone for helping me through this year it's been a tough one.


12-31-2008 3:17 PM -- By: Luna,    Critters.com memorial:   Luna Memorial

As each little angel greets the day, they sit and relax, take in a spa day and get dressed for their party, the biggest one’s they’ve seen this year! Hip Hip Hooray, it’s almost A New Years! … And do you know what that brings, one more year to dream …  

 

… all the little angels dressed up in their formal wear, the girls in pretty ivory satin dressed with scoop necklines draped with a strand of pearls, the boys dressed in tuxedo’s and satin top hats …  they head to the main  parlor through the garden  towards the formal dining room where their dining experience awaits them.  Bobo, Christian, Blossom, Dollie, Luna and Happy take center stage and bow gracefully as the hostesses begin to serve the appetizers. Each guest is escorted to their tables dressed with crystal stem wear, napkins sit on top of their plates and  a candle opera grace the center of each table surrounded by little tea lights that sparkle and shine, as servers fill their grasses with bubbly and take their orders, the dance floor lightly lit and each child gladly takes the hand of a special little lady and glides them across the floor, the music is playing and the their little hearts beat as one, you can feel it inside as you watch them glide across the floor, hand in hand, toe to toe, a few kisses exchanged, and bashful eyes sparkle by the moons light-beams flickering light. They kick up their heals and send their grown cascading in a free flowing motion as they flutter and spin across the dance floor. The dimmed alights grew brighter and each child returned to their seats. The servers carried out trays filled with T-bone steaks, mash potatoes with lots of butter and sour cream, there was salmon, tuna steak or white fish for our feline friends, and choice of lamb chops or chicken breast, but no matter they were all seared or sizzled to perfection.

In the center of the dining hall stood a huge crystal ball, it  descended in the center of the room shining ever so brightly white dinner is being served, then after it flew up high to the ceiling and it’s light cascaded around the room setting a somewhat romantic mood. As the day grew on a few walked to the patio, the garden, the beach or the lounge,  they laughed and told stories, even hummed a few tunes, as each one walked up the path they could hear the sounds from the musicians who were playing by the beach … The decorations were beautiful, so elegant and refined, each child felt special not just by the clothes they wore, but by the company they shared, they have more than they could have ever asked for … the music they heard lingered in their minds as they walked the star-studded path hand in hand.

 

They returned to the main dining hall and all were amazed … right in the center was a light glowing brighter than they have ever seen before, as they all gather around it grew brighter than ever before, as they looked up it lifted to the heavens, the light cascading through the sky for the whole world to see .. they sparkled like rainbows bouncing off stars, the light was light fireworks but better by far, for this was not created by man nor machine, it’s the love our children hold inside that shines so bright, it shines by day although we can not always see but I can feel their warmth inside of me, and by night and the close of a day, brings us one step closer to where our heart resides, next to our children, our love of our live … Each child runs and dances at the clock strokes Midnight, lots of kisses and hugs and noise makers of all kinds, glowing sticks flashing as they wave them to the air, it send out sparkles that seem to float in the air, it’s magic you see and it all because of you, you gave them your love … they will always love you.

 

They tilt their glass and lend a shout … HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! As they kiss and hugs that simple gesture sent that rainbow soaring to new heights, up, up,  over the rainbow” where only angels fly … caught amongst the wings of angels,  in the hearts of all who love you,  they dance and they sing, spinning and twirling to the wee hours of the day … as they walked along the beach they looked up and wished upon a star, and they said we’ve in heaven, but it won’t be home till you’re here and join us … in the whisper of the winds you could hear each one say, “we love you”  as they sent us kisses spiraling our way … not just to the parents but friends and those they have come to know … with a loud roar they scream … HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! We love you, night-night!

 

Luna closed her eyes … and says, “I love you; each one of you from the bottom of my heart, now we are happy and whole and one day you will be too! Luna looks to the water and send all the parents a wish, “the love that grows inside each one of us … also grows in you”. All the little angels gather around and send off lots of little kisses  and warm heartfelt wishes …  all our love now and always … from your little angels above, we love you always, forever in our hearts. As each child climbs in to bed the stars rise above, forever and always … you’ll be a part of us.   Luna & her mom Nadine

SEPARATE LIFETIMES

We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle; easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the neccesary plan....

--- Irving Townsend ---

Maria, Gracie is having a grand time with all her new friends at The Bridge. They are all whole again, and running free in wonderful meadows and warm sunshine. Although we know they are free of illness and pain, we miss them and hurt no less, as we face our life without them. My heart aches for you and with you, as you hold dear Gracie's memories so deep in your heart. I am with you my friend.

Hi Everyone...just wanted to let you all know that I finally posted a couple of pictures of Macy.  We have had a rough start.  Macy got sick in the early morning hours Monday.  I called the vet at 5:30 am, and he had me bring her in.  She had to spend the night away from us...she had coccidiosis, and being only 1 1/2 lbs, and vomiting, the vet did not want to take any chances.  But on Tuesday morning, I was able to pick her up, and she is doing fine.  She had 2 guardian angels watching over her...Ginger, and Patty.  As soon as I take a few more pics of her, I will post them.  She just doesn't stay still long enough to take pictures...unless she is sleeping. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and looking forward to the New Year! Love, Michele

HAPPY HOLIDAY TO OUR BELOVED PETS AND THEIR FAMILIES,

I wish all of you a good year and continue to remember always the love that are pets showed to us. I know that they are all well and happy at Rainbow Bridge, not in pain anymore, running around and having fun and meeting all their new friends.

On behalf of my mom and I, I wish to thank all of you who have visited Lady's memorial and for your kind words.  She was the  love of her mommy's life.  I always tell people I am a better person because of what she showed me and taught me throughout our 17 years together.

Our beautiful  pets are always in our hearts and in our soul.  Without a doubt, they are all watching over us.   Lots of love, peace, and happiness to everyone now and always and in the years to come.

Love, Carol Anne and Grandmom, and a special welcome home to Miss Roxy who was reunited with her Mom, Andrea in time for the holidays.

Dollie and I  want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with love, happiness, togetherness and hope.  We've been so blessed by all of the folks that have dropped by and left us such sweet and kind notes that we've not been able to respond to. I'm having major back surgery on the 20th of January and to just sit and type is a major ordeal for us. We used to not miss visiting each and evey new baby everyday. Now about all I can do is to spend a little time with my baby gurl each night. I'm not telling all of this for pity because I know that The Lord is going to take care of me as He always has. It's simply to say that we miss and love each love you all like family and we'll back soon to pay our respect and offer our support very soon. Thank you all again for not fogetting us as we certainly haven't you. May God bless you all with His very, very best. Sincerely and from our heart's, Dollie and her daddy..;)
