I think of you everyday, and Abby still howles for you everynight. She is just like clockwork about 2:30a.m. every night. I know you were sent to Rainbow Bridge for a good reason, and I know that you are doing your job, because you were raised right. I know you have so many friends there. Look after everybody there, and we will continue to have our little talk every night and our prayer. Love you Little Toot, miss you Jimmy...
12-01-2007 5:22 PM -- By: Matt, Critters.com memorial: daisy Memorial To all my sister Daisys fiends that came to my party today. I never would have believed that you did come if it hadn't been for the card you left under my pillow.. I't had five different coins in it. I know it was not written in my moms hand writting so I know it had to come from all of you. It had a bunch of your names on it. Thanks for coming. Love Matt P.S. there is still more cake left so if you get hungry in the middle of the night please feel free to come back and have some more. =(*_*)=

11-30-2007 4:02 PM -- By: Ann, Critters.com memorial: Wor Noops(Snoopy) Memorial I know a lot of you are feeling down right now, especially being the holiday season. Im thinking of you and i hold you all very dear to my heart.
We knew we were Special,
Right from the start.
You loved us so dearly,
Deep down in your heart.
Our leaving has hurt you, but try not to cry,
One fine day, we’ll meet in the sky.
We’re all very happy, we miss you we do,
Us Bridgekids together we’ll all start anew.
Remember we Love you, just look to a star,
We’re sometimes close by you, we’ll never be far.
Our wings they are glistening,
In the bright golden sun.
We’re Gods Special Angels,
We are second to none!
Lord Almighty God, these animals brought sunshine to us and were a vital part of our lives.
Their passing has created a void in our hearts that cannot be filled.
We do not question the will of God, but ask Him to be merciful in our loss.
11-30-2007 1:30 PM -- By: Ann, Pet's name: Is he a spider??? Hmmmmm I've not got a clue. My search continues.
11-30-2007 1:29 PM -- By: Wor Noops mam, Critters.com memorial: Wor Noops(Snoopy) Memorial Sheba i just read the message and i think Blossom left it cos i asked her if she would tell me who Hairy Legs is, but she's not telling. Dollie and Daisy are keeping me guessing too! WHO IS HAIRY LEGS??? I think there was a clue in your message about a chow. I only know one chow. Is it Killer? Hmmm I dunno!
11-30-2007 12:13 PM -- By: Sheba, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Someone left me a hilarious but anonymous message asking if I know who Hairy Legs is. He's one of our spider friends---because whatever species, all of us here are friends and love each other so much.
11-30-2007 12:16 AM -- By: Lil Joe's Mommy, Critters.com memorial: Lil Joe Memorial I have to agree, That poem is beautiful......It truly helped me, my brain has been working overtime lately, I'm dreading Dec so much and Then awful Jan. But I'm trying so hard for my baby to get motivated to get the Christmas Spirit because that is one thing my Kids like is the Lights.... Joey Always would go outside with me and help me put them up and go out and see why they weren't working, and many many hours we'd just lay there and watch the twinkle of the lights on the tree, I'd sleep on the couch just so we could leave the tree on all night long, I'm miss him so so much, but my Sassie girl loves the lights too, so I'm really trying, but nothing has been done yet. I haven't said much to anyone but my little girl is losing her hair, and we know she has a thyroid problem and is medicine for that know we are doing b-12 shots of vitamins to see if this will help, and then more blood work, so say a little prayer for Joey's sister anyways, I know you all understand how much I miss my little boy especially now and his birthday would be coming up right after my husbands we use get to have two parties the kids loved it two within two days they were in cupcake heaven.. I want to Thank you all for listening to me. I know I'm emotional and on and on I go. But I Truly Care about each and everyone of you.... Tracie
11-29-2007 9:31 PM -- By: Cheri, Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial Whoever posted "I'm Still Here", God bless you. It's exactly what I needed tonight. It's been a rough day. God and Coco are speaking to me through you. Thank you so much.
11-29-2007 8:52 PM -- By: , Pet's name: I'm Still Here
Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!
11-29-2007 2:34 PM -- By: Bev B., Critters.com memorial: Klaus Memorial Hey Ann, I was wondering the same thing too. If anyone has info on where to find those backgrounds I'd like to know too. Btw Ann, I just love looking at those pics of Narla - she just sooo reminds me of Klaus. I know you will find such laughter and fun with her! Hopefully I'll get to see more pics of her in the future.
11-29-2007 1:30 PM -- By: wicki, Sheba's mom, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial God is a great matchmaker.----Jewish proverb
Not only is He a great matchmaker with people, but He has quite the knack for matching humans and their pets. I've had three (Sheba, Ciao-Li, and Weezer) who were the absolutely perfect pets for me, even though they're not much alike, and don't even want to imagine how empty life would have been without ever knowing and loving them. Sometimes He even arranges for the pets to pick out their humans. Coincidence? I think not. I'm very grateful to Him for having had Sheba, and for having Ciao and Weezer now.
11-29-2007 8:36 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Jeanne - I so understand how you are feeling.
Imagine my surprise just a few weeks after Nvwati passed away when I heard of a man who was unable to keep his beloved dog anymore. His dog is a red and white siberian husky with one amber and one blue eye.(Nvwati was husky/timber wolf with two blue eyes). I too was afraid I would look at Yukon and think of or miss my Nvwati even more, or compare them.. being unfair to Yukon. This was not the case though. Yukon looks different enough from my baby Nvwati, has a totally different personality, and is such a good and sweet sweet boy. I love him...... not the same way I love my Nvwati but then I have had Mkwaa for almost 8 years and I love her differently than I do Nvwati too.
Its not that I love them less than, just DIFFERENTLY.
I hope this makes sense.
Hugs to you

11-28-2007 10:39 PM -- By: Ann, Critters.com memorial: Wor Noops(Snoopy) Memorial Hi to everyone. My sympathy to all who are having down days right now. That's the thing with grief. No two days the same,emotions up and down. I pray you have more good days than bad.
Im posting this to ask if anyone could offer me advice? Im looking for a site where you can upload photos to a picture background like Rainbow Bridge or create a photo collage. I've seen some lovely pics on memorials and just wonder where you get them done? I'd like to do one of Wor Noops. I've searched the internet but can't find anything. Any advice would be appreciated.
My thoughts are with you all. Ann x
11-28-2007 9:52 PM -- By: Cheri, Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial I'm still finding it very hard to think about the day I put Coco down. It's still too painful for me to go there. This was the second time I've had to do this. My first time was my Missie when she was 16 years old. That was in 1990. I didn't think I would recover from that one. Now I'm trying very hard not to think about my last day with my Coco. There are questions that I ask myself, doubts about doing the right thing, even though the vet said it was the right thing to do. She was very, very sick with a mass on her liver. She was losing weight, not eating much, slowing down, very tired. I can't keep writing about it. It's making me think and I don't want to think.
11-28-2007 7:46 PM -- By: jean- teds mom, Critters.com memorial: TED Memorial to all of you who came to teds site, thank you so much.. you made me feel like i am not alone and this site for me is a lifesaver! you all are my lifesavers. i bow gracefully to you all! angel thank you for his letter! so many special people here, so many special furbabies here! no wonder we came here! but by the grace of god i guess! from the bottom of my heart i thank you all for your honest and kind words!
11-28-2007 11:11 AM -- By: jean- teds mom, Critters.com memorial: TED Memorial hello everyone!
everyday i come here as much a 5 6 10 or a hundred times in a day! and i read all of the boards and the new memorials and everytime i read them i go back to the dreadful days and the pain of losing ted and i think that this time hasnt gotten any better just cause i dont cry every single minute or every single thought of my boy! they say its suppose to get better! it just makes realize that he is GONE! final done! i cant wrap my arms around him and stick my face in his neck or grab his nose and kiss him or turn anywhere in and see those big brown eyes on me! and just knowing that he is HERE with me! ted sent me over the edge! i have zane and harri now and sometimes i dont feel for them! i know i did a good thing on the rescue part but they are no TED! harri tries my patience in a big way and zane is a young boy who follows his brother! he is kinda like ted but... i dont know why i am saying all this because its sounds crazy but i dont cant say any of this to anyone but you guys! and that special angel who writes me notes from ted i just want to hug you in the worse way! i think this is just a bad day!
thank you for listening to me!
11-28-2007 8:47 AM -- By: Jeanne, Critters.com memorial: Holly Memorial Jeannie- I'm grateful for your message. I also feel very unsafe and nervous since Holly has been gone. I do understand your feelings about your new baby. I'm afraid that my bond won't be as strong when I get my new dog. I pray that I'll snap out of my depression when I set my eyes on my new baby. Because I'm also scared that I won't be the person I was with Holly. Thanks again for sharing your feelings. I'll be thinking about you. Your Friend, Jeanne
11-27-2007 11:29 PM -- By: Jeannie, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial Jeanne-I'm so sorry for how you are feeling. I too have the same feelings that you are experiencing. I will never forget that last day with my Gypsy Rose, the last moment of her breathing and the instant her heart stopped-it was so final. My life is not the same, nor will it ever be. One day I hope to find peace, and know that I did the right thing, in my head I know that it was the right thing. All year I kept telling myself, I hope that Gyspy Rose makes it to Christmas, as my granddaughters are coming in for Christmas. I always felt so safe with my Gypsy Rose and family at my house. I don't feel so safe anymore or at peace with her gone. Sometimes I don't know how I will make it. I do have a new dog, Mollie-I love her to pieces, but she is not my Gypsy Rose. I sometimes feel so overwhelmed with Mollie, she has so much energy-much more than Gypsy Rose did. I feel as though I don't love her "as much" as Gypsy Rose. I feel really gaurded with my feelings for her, and feel as though my life in general is overwhelming. I don't think this is fair to her. I know that Mollie was put here for me, since there is always a reason that we came together, we were chosen to be together. Maybe for her to teach me to be more calm and assertive and to be more at peace, since my emotions influence her behavior. I hope in time I can become the human, my Mollie needs me to be to keep her stable and for her to keep me grounded. Your Holly in with my Gypsy Rose up in Heaven enjoying the perfect life-they don't want us to be sad, even though it is hard-I have to keep thinking that my Gypsy Rose is now healed and able to breathe, and can run and play with all her wonderful new friends. Please take care Jeanne-I'll be thinking of you.
11-27-2007 8:02 PM -- By: Jeanne, Critters.com memorial: Holly Memorial I'd like to thank everyone that recently signed Holly's guestbook. My computer as been broken so I appologize for not thanking all you wonderful people sooner. I especially would like to thank the Angel that helped my Holly write a letter to me saying she is doing well and is happy with our Lord in heaven. I have truly had a tough time with my putting Holly to sleep. My mind plays ticks on me and I feel like maybe I should have given her another chance. I was chatting with a friend and I told her my struggles with my decision. She said to me that I didn't put Holly to death (which is how I feel sometimes). You put Holly to rest (BIG SIGH). I really need to believe that. I guess the euthanasia was so final. One minute she was here and the next gone and I made that decision to stop her heart from beating. See Holly was still alter and I think that's my struggle. My decision was made because she lose 10 lbs in 6 weeks and stopped eating. I guess I just need to remember that.
11-27-2007 10:31 AM -- By: Anne Cale, Critters.com memorial: Whizzer Memorial I hope Boedy and whizzer are shareing their first Thanksgiving together as this is whizzys first also. In our house we had a tradition, no matter who or how many people were at the house to eat, we would bring a chair in just for my two greyhounds and put there dishes on it. they would be served first, they would have all the food we would be eating with gravy over the top. Once they start eating , then my guests were allowed to start. This year, we chose not to celebrate thanksgiving that day. We held off till Sunday and made it a Special day dinner for whizzy. Sarah Amanda still was served first and started eating first . That tradition will never end. We had whizzys picture in a frame on our table as well. Its only been a week and we miss him more and more. So, Whizzy baby, Your tradition lives on for you.
11-26-2007 11:56 PM -- By: Carol, Critters.com memorial: My Copper Girl Memorial I added some poems to a new page on Coppers Memorial...take a look. Also have you seen the book "Rescuing Sprite" by Mark Levin...It is a good book by a dear man who, like us thought of Sprite as a child in his family....It is sad, but it is wonderful...almost every page I found myself saying "Exactly, that is how I felt too about Copper.
11-26-2007 1:47 PM -- By: , Pet's name: Missy had a fabulous birthday party yesterday, and thanks to Boedy ( he was the only one who knew how to use scissors properly) he saved the day. Ted did his famous "Papelbon Jig"...go to missy's and read all about it!
11-25-2007 1:54 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Friday marked 2 months since my sweet Nvwati passed away. It seems like 20 years in so many ways, so much has happened during this time.
I doubt the sadness will ever leave but I am learning to cope with my grief a bit differently each day.
Richard I am so sorry to hear of Michelle losing her sweet Marquisea especially so soon after Princess' death. I signed her guestbook.
It brings me comfort to know that Nvwati and Dollie and Cinderella and ToTo and Daisy and Ebony and Fergi and all our beloved furbabies were there to greet Marquisea and that she will now be pain free.
