As the hectic day draws to a close
And the daytime fades to night
I sit down at my computer
And visit my little gurl's site.
And when her page is fully loaded
When she's there and her face appears
Every time and without fail
It's sure to bring the tears.
Sometimes it's tears of happiness
Sometimes it's tears of pain
But the tears, they come with certainty
As sure as the springtime rain.
And after I spend some time with Dot
Quality time, my daughter and I
I always leave her with a little prayer
Before we say goodbye.
Now it's time to visit the new kids
The ones added to Critters today
I desire to get to know each one
In a personal and intimate way.
Every time I think "I'm in control
It won't get to me today
I'll visit each baby and then I'll leave
A little note and be on my way."
So with good intent I'll click on a pic
And enter that little one's site
And if I'm not careful I just might be
Sitting here staring at them all night.
Because it matters not to me if I visit
With a doggie or a kitty or a bird
My heart just breaks so bad sometimes
I'll leave without even a word.
I'll think "here I am a grown man
Battle scared by life on earth
Can I not think of something to say
Some comforting words of worth?"
So most times I'll usually leave a note
To convey sympathy that I've sent
Forgive me if I don't say the right thing
Because I try with good intent.
And then there's times, I must admit
As hard as I may try
The words won't come, I sit and stare
And like a newborn babe I cry.
Because I know that mommy or daddy
Or whoever it might be
Is walking the path that I walked
When Dollie was taken from me.
And if I could write a message
That would be a literary masterpiece
It still would just be scribble
Not causing their pain to cease.
So I want each and every one of you
Who may read this jumbled mess
To know my heart is with you
As your faith's put to the test.
Although I'm grieving just like you are
I want you each to clearly see
I'll always be here for you all
For you've got a friend in me..;)

My best friend, loyal companion and soul mate, has surely gone over the Rainbow Bridge, and I cannot begin to describe the grief, pain and suffering this has left in my heart. This was definitely one of those "once in a lifetime" dogs, the very one that won your heart from day one and it has been my honor and my privilege to have shared his life with mine.
So this is to you my friend, run, play and enjoy until WE MEET AGAIN!
My undying love,

Leigh Nvwati has soemthing for Little Bit on his Valentine's Day Page.

Everyday was his Valentine's Day....... bless their little hearts eh? to come into our lives never knowing how much they will give us??

Hello all, I cant thank each and everyone here who has been so kind as to visiting Little Bits tribute, how much it means to us and that if it wasnt for all the love and support I have received here, I dont think I would be able to make it or get thru this. Valentines day is going to be tough because I just realized it is the 14th (as always) but that date 14 is the date we lost Little bit also , just in a month earlier. It is supposed to be a day of love and happiness, for me it will be missing love and saddness. Bless each of you here and know I pray for each of you and your fur babies too each nite. Y Ou have been wonderful.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. If you stop by Nvwati's Memorial and check out his Valentine's Day page there is something there especially for many of you. Anyone who doesn't find a valentine there for your furbaby know it is only because I haven't had time to get to them all. If you especially want one just let me know and I would be honoured to make you one as well.
Take care all.

Roni. I am so very sorry. I have just visited Neehi's Memorial and signed the guestbook. Getting to know her better as you share.
02-05-2008 8:10 PM -- By: Roni, Critters.com memorial: Neehi Memorial
It has been a week since my baby walked over the rainbow bridge. Still seems unreal that she is gone, I expect her to come running to greet me when i get home I still hear her paw prints on the stairs, I sure do miss her tail banging on the walls. It is so painful to not have her, even tho' I know she had to go. That little darling brought so much happiness to all of us. I could go on forever talking about her and all the querky things she did. So Thanks to everyone that reads this. My beautiful Black Lab is happily eating "kneehis" in heaven now. I miss you girl... forever

We lost our beloved dachshund Stuart on Friday Feb. 1st unexpectantly. I miss him so very much and am having extreme guilt for not knowing he had cancer. It was so bad it ruptured his spleen - not sure I will be able to ever forgive myself. He was a member of our family and so loved. Most people do not understand the pain.

Well we took down her crate yesterday. Wow that was hard. My son was helping me. He is such a trooper for a nine year old. I cried so hard. He just gave me a hug. It was like Shadow was there. She always would come to me if I was crying or upset and put her head on me. Thank you to all who have left me messages. It really does help to know I can talk to people who know what I am feeling. I know some day I will be able to help someone too. In time!

We will change the fonts back to their original settings (the "old critters format") and we will add an option so that users can select whether to use the new edit boxes or the original, simple format, text boxes. Check back in this forum to confirm when these changes have been completed.
We appreciate everyone's feedback even if it is negative. We wish to make the site the best it can be and this is best done with feedback from you.

A LITTLE GIRL WANTS TO MAKE SURE HER DOG IS OK IN HEAVEN
**Dr. Jon - This is one of the kindest things I've ever experienced. I don't know who originally started this story, but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter office of the US postal service. I hope you find this suitable for posting on your website! - Aurelia**.
Here is her story:
Abbey and Meredith
Our 14-year-old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words:
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her, you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven.
That afternoon she dropped it into the letterbox at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought he had.
Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, "To Meredith", in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, "When a Pet Dies." Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help. I recognized Abbey right away. Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I'm easy to find, I am wherever there is love.
I agree. There is a loving soul working in the post office. Have a great day.
Until next time, Dr. Jon
P.S. If this touched you, forward it to a friend and share.
