I just wanted to thank whoever sent the letter from Gypsy Rose in Heaven. I read it and instantly cried. It was just what I have been looking for. I have had a heavy heart the last couple of days, thinking about her. Wondering if she was okay, wondering if she was happy. I miss her so much, the letter meant so much to me. Thank you for thinking of me and my beautiful Gypsy Rose.

Hi Everyone, I had to get caught up, I have been sick and still am so I'm spending most of my time in bed.. Anyways I had to check on my baby and I see he's up to it again, I always new he loved to sing his little heart out and Thank you all for helping him out with this little Talent show, It makes me smile to know that our babies can still bring smiles to us in ways.. But I do know that like Judy I still Cry so so much just like being sick I didn't realize how much he truly looked after his mommy always being right there, how I miss him. Well I already feel like do so I truly don't want to start crying. Anyways Bless you All, and I will Be Keeping each and everyone of you in my Thoughts and Prayers without you I'd be LOST..... BLESS YOU..

Hey everyone! go visit Fergi's Memorial. I was telling Fergi how I sent Yukon Jack to mom and Mkwaa and now Fergi's mom has a new furball to love too! She's absolutely adorable and I think she is gonna keep her mom busy! Mom says to tell you all that she is busy for the next few days so probably won't have much time to post here for a day or two but is thinking of you all. She's doing "ok" thinks of me often (and she should!) and will be thinking of you all in her absense.

Hello Everyone.How are you all coping with your losses of your babies?.It is five months since Luke has left me.They say time heals,well i personally don't know about that.Not a day goes by that i don't think of him and yes the tears still come.I try to be happy because i know Luke would want me to be,but it is hard.He was my rock.Whenever i was having a bad day,he knew how to cheer me up as he wanted me to be happy and i know he would want that now,and i am trying.Well just wanted to say hello to all and wanted you all to know i visit all of your babie's tributes frequently,just to see how all are doing and it also helps me know i am not the only one grieving.Hugs to you all and to our fur babies,who i hear are having a great time,free of pain. Thankyou all who have visited Luke's tribute. Lauvern and LUKE.

Our beloved babies gave us sooooooooo much when they were here and even after they have gone are still giving.They brought us all together through this wonderful site.It's because of them we found this site and I for one am sooooooooo grateful. Although we are soooooooo far apart we are soooooooo close.We have never met,and never will but i feel i have made some very special friends.So Thankyou Noops for loving me and giving me something special even after you have gone.

Thankyou to all for helping Wor Noops live on in memory and a special thanks to Coppers mum who went out of her way to send me a lovely email when i was feeling down.

Diana........ I have just visited Demonito's Memorial and signed his guestbook. We hope he joins us at our talent show. Fergi you are doing great! Oh boy! what a soprano voice you have. Wor Noops you BEST sign up. It wouldn't be the same without all our fur babies joining in on our talent show. I hear Toto and Cinderella are going to do a duet.......... tap dancing yet! OH I am so excited.

I am celebrating Demonito's life. In the few months he walked with me the difficult path of caring for an Alzheimer Disease patient, he filled my life with joy and offered many reasons for laugh (he stole coins), to be grateful (he meowed at the top of his lungs when he knew my husband was in troubles), to be angry for some other reasons than be dealing with a terrible disease (he loved to bite my feet when I was trying to get some sleep), in all, he was like a lighting bolt, bright, noisy and of a short duration. I will miss very much.

As a Native American, Ceremony is important to me. My healing all has to do with Ceremony. Although this is not Native - specific this came across my email today and am sharing with you all in case someone might be interested.

Wreath Ceremony

This is a ceremony to be shared with family and friends. You pick a person to do the speaking at the ceremony.

***** With the lighting of these four candles in this wreath, let me call to mind grief's journey.

We light one candle for love, because if we had not loved, we would not grieve.

We light on candle for courage, because it takes a great deal of courage to live with loss.

We light one candle for hope, because only with a sense of hopefulness we approach the future.

We light on candle for the memories, because they sustain us day to day.

Greif's journey also requires us to let go.

So we blow out one candle to let go of the anger, because it was not one's fault.

So we blow out one candle to let go of the guilt, because we did all we could.

We blow out on candle to let go of the pain, so the memories can be sweet

We blow out one candle to let go of despair, as we can hold on to hope.

Oh how perfect. And Sheba can wear a tiara! How befitting for her royalty??????? As long as she doesn't try to get my Nvwati in a tutu I think all will be ok. He was such a MALE dog lol.

11-03-2007 9:53 AM -- By: wicki,    Critters.com memorial:   Sheba Memorial
Sheba could be in the dance contest in the talent show. She sometimes would run sideways and her little legs would look like she was doing ballet.

I awoke this morning and Yukon and Mkwaa are still snoozing. Thoughts of Nvwati are heavy on my mind. I need to trust that he felt my life as he passed from this world to the next. It all happened so fast!!! He knew he was adored in life....... I made sure of that and so I must trust that he knew what was going through my mind that last half hour of his life. Nvwati has been playing little tricks on me but hasn't come to visit me in dreams yet, or in other ways that I know for sure it is him. He will when he is ready. I had to be out for several hours yesterday, seeing a new doctor, and leaving Mkwaa and Yukon home alone. I do this so rarely. When I returned home I noticed Mkwaa has another hot spot on her side. She is obviously still stressed out.I try to spend alone time with each, Mkwaa and Yukon every day. Mkwaa to let her know she is still my very special girl, or as I refer to her "My favourite Girl dog" and Yukon so he will feel welcome and bond in a good way. Fall has hit in Toronto. The mornings and evenings are chilly. It's so beautiful with the leaves changing colours and falling from the trees. I think today I will take them to doggy park and see if I can't get some nice pictures. Nvwati always loved to shovel the leaves with his nose. It seems everywhere I go, everything I do,reminds me of my Bubbs. Both Nvwati and Mkwaa had the same birthday( different years) and we always sang Happy Birthday twice with Nvwati singing louder than anyone of course! I don't know if dogs put these things together or not but hopefully Mkwaa will learn to enjoy her birthday "alone" with us loving her through it. Just got an idea. On their birthday I always brought them to Pet Valu to pick out whatever treats they wanted. I might make today a Happy Unbirthday day for Mkwaa and let her pick whatever she wants at Pet Valu. Just needed to rant. Thank you.

Judy, it hasnt been that long for me but I know I cried non stop it seemed for six months at least when Miko, Nvwati's mom died. Its evident that those who find our ways to critters.com TRULY adored our furbabies and understand others needs to grieve in whatever way we can to get through this. It doesnt really matter to me that I had Mkwaa still or that Yukon came into our lives. This does not take away the pain of losing my Nvwati. I think what helped me most was being able to build Nvwati's Memorial site and to interact with you all. Sending you a big virtual hug and a shoulder to cry on anytime. Take care.
