11-04-2007 9:21 AM -- By: Lauvern Pawlett, Critters.com memorial: Luke Memorial 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.

11-04-2007 5:55 AM -- By: Nvwati, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Diana........ I have just visited Demonito's Memorial and signed his guestbook. We hope he joins us at our talent show.

11-04-2007 12:12 AM -- By: Fergi, Critters.com memorial: Fergi Memorial Thankyou Nvwati for offering your help!
I will meet up with you at the pond....
11-03-2007 9:33 PM -- By: Diana, Critters.com memorial: Demonito Memorial 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.
11-03-2007 5:37 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial 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.
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.

11-03-2007 12:30 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial 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.
11-03-2007 5:43 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial 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.
11-03-2007 5:27 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial 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.
11-03-2007 12:23 AM -- By: Judy, Critters.com memorial: Blossom Green Memorial Do any of you have a hard time even after about six months of loosin my girl..I can't even think of Knoxville Tennesse without crying..They diagnosed her Tumor there..It just seems like its Impossible, Like its all a Dream..I'm really having it bad tonight..I miss my Blossom so much

11-02-2007 4:43 PM -- By: Mayor Ted, Pet's name: Just wanted to let you all know that Lil' Joe just posted a flyer on one of the trees in "Shady Park" for his first Talent Night.

11-02-2007 1:27 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Today marks 5 weeks since my beloved Nvwati passed away. It feels like five years in some ways and yesterday in others.
Learning of how so many of your sweet furbabies suffered for so long with cancers, etc. makes me greatful that my Nvwati was fine one minute and gone the next. He didn't suffer at all and for that I am greatful!
Hugs to all.
11-02-2007 12:28 PM -- By: Mama, Critters.com memorial: Logan Memorial Logan, it has been one year since you were laid to rest. The hole in my heart is always there. I still miss you so much and wish you were here. There is still so much I wanted you to be a part of. I love you!
11-02-2007 10:31 AM -- By: mama, Critters.com memorial: Breeze Memorial My sweet Breeze, I miss you so. I know you were waiting for Jake at the rainbow bridge when his spirit left our arms. Show him how to run on all 4 legs, he didn't do so well on only 3. You were the best big siter ever and I know you'll take care of him. I miss you both so much. Our family is not the same without you two. Madison misses you both so much. As much as she is loving being top dog around here she would give it up to have you both back.......I love you Breezer!
11-02-2007 10:27 AM -- By: Mama, Critters.com memorial: Jake Memorial It's been a week big boy and I miss you so much. I know your big siter Breeze was at the rainbow bridge to meet you. She will show you how to run free with no pain. I miss you both so much. Madison has been sleeping on your bed and she looks for you everywhere. I love you Jake.
11-02-2007 6:40 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Strange things happening here........
Ok my digital camera did not work Sunday so I bought one of those disposable cameras. Took almost a whole roll of Nvwati's Memorial Feast....... on the way to the drugstore to have the film developed I lost the camera somehow out of the basket of my scooter.
So I get another disposable camera......... take about 12 pics of Nvwati's urn, memorial plaque etc........ and some of Mkwaa and Yukon Jack. I get that roll developed and every picture BUT those of Nvwati's stuff turned out. The flash was on and working.
I think he's trying to tell me something!!!
Like a fool I go out and get a different brand of disposable camera and its sitting here staring at me saying "I dare you!"
When will I learn? LOL
11-02-2007 6:37 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Jennifer, Yep at Rainbow Bridge our dogs are very good to cats!!! And I hear from Nvwati that Fergi was a lovely dragonfly. :)
11-01-2007 7:45 PM -- By: Jennifer, Critters.com memorial: Fergi Memorial Thankyou Mayor Ted for making my Halloween great!
I was so thrilled to hear about the big Halloween parade!
Fergi a dragonfly, that just made my night!
