10-30-2007 8:49 PM -- By: brenda turner, Critters.com memorial: BUSTER Memorial Please just let me say, im quite new to critters, i came to this site when i lost little Buster on 17th Aug, and i have to say i love reading Richard humor on his little girl, and anyone can see how much he loved little Dollie, when i first came to critters i was in a terrible state in fact quite desperate and just wanted to give up on life,
But two people on this site have brought me back to life again and could not thank them enough, im sure they wont mind me telling you there names, Richard and Dollie, and Carol and Ebony, two special people who have never meet me, have help pull me through, and have left messages on other peoples who have lost there loved ones,So i thank you and please keep the humor going on little Dollie and Carol for all the kind and encourageing words that help so many of us, specially when you are hurting with pain the same as us, and to all on critters, thank you so much, love and hugs to all,xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
10-30-2007 8:29 PM -- By: Tracie Lil Joe's Mommy, Critters.com memorial: Lil Joe Memorial Richard and Dollie I Love the post and it brings smiles to my face, because I can see my silly baby singing his heart out, because he loved to sing, we'd sing all the time together, and It brings back so many happy times, I cry and smile now when my other two sing, it's not the same but it helps to hear them try to sing. The other day I was driving home and I was having a bad day and I was talking to myself telling Lil Joe that I needed something, anything as I was driving it was sunny with someclouds in the distance and there it was a beautiful Rainbow, I thought to myself there it is, I know that sounds so crazy, but it made me Smile and Say that I was going to get through this day. I have to agree with Carole, it get harder, well I have to go before the eyes start to puff up again. I just want to THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of my HEART for Caring and Understanding....
10-30-2007 5:00 PM -- By: Daisy's Nana, Pet's name: Can I add my two cents? There are wonderful people on this board, however they chose to memorialize their beloved pets is their decision not anyone else's. Some people are suffering horribly after losing their love of their lives, we even have some people who have lost multiple pets here, how terrible is that? If someone can bring comfort and a smile to another one who is suffering isn't that what where all here for? Personally I can't wait for the next party.
10-30-2007 4:08 PM -- By: Carole Tturner, Critters.com memorial: Ebony Turner Memorial Hello Richard (Dollies daddy). Excellent paragraph below dated 10/30!!! I also agree with the "kind" comments that are being left by everyone, in regards to your post. We are in a very difficult portion of our journey toward healing whether we lost our babies one day, one week, one month, one year or more ago. I personally miss Ebony today more than I did the first day she was gone. I think that may have to do with my order of the loss process. A councelor said, "Grieving tends to have a life of its own"...and it sure does!
Grasping any ray of sunshine that pierces through the clouds on our gloomy days is such an uplift. Dollie is a beautiful little "gurl", and you deserve to honor and celebrate her in any way you chose, as goes for anyone else who wants to join in on the celebrations. I am so very thankful for this website. I attended professional counceling sessions, which helped very much, but they can be costly and are only available at designated times. The support I've found here is what really is helping me through my pain. God Bless you and Dollie Richard. We are with you!
10-30-2007 11:58 AM -- By: wicki, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Hi, Richard. I hope no one will be offended by you using humor to remember Dollie and if it helps the grieving process, God bless you and more power to you. Our animals were our babies and a huge part of our families, and it helps to remember them and think of them having the same sweet personalities in Heaven as they had here. I love to imagine all our animals being Rainbow Bridge friends. I do believe we will see them again, and they haven't lost their sweet spirits and personalities just because we can't see them.
10-30-2007 11:55 AM -- By: wicki, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Let's all stop by and wish gorgeous Brooke a happy 13th birthday! Now that she's a teenager, too, the boys will be flocking to her, wanting to be her birthday date.
10-30-2007 10:56 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Oh wonderful! Thank you Sharon! Now how do we find them? LOL
10-30-2007 10:50 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Oh Richard. I for one never felt offended. As a matter of fact it was you writing through Dollie's birthday that was the beginning of so many of us beginning to smile again. I thank you for this!
10-30-2007 10:26 AM -- By: sharon - Critters.com, Pet's name: Just wanted to let everyone know we have added some holiday backgrounds to Critters.com we will be adding more over the next few weeks.
Virtual hugs to all....
10-30-2007 10:26 AM -- By: Richard Cothran, Critters.com memorial: Dollie Memorial I want to thank everyone that has helped me in the past four months since my little gurl, Dollie, moved away. I still get very excited when I receive an email notifying me of a new entry in her guestbook. Contrary to what some would believe, Critters is not my life. But Dollie was, and is, a very important part of it. When you spend practically every day and night with someone or something, they, or it, becomes a part of you. And when this scenario changes, adjustments have to be made. That's the process that I'm in now. This web site has given me the opportunity to memorialize her in the way that I choose. One, and just one, of the ways that I choose to do this is through humor. I knew Dollie's personality as well as I know my own and I don't believe that I've disgraced her life, or the memory of it, in any way through her posts, comments, or pictures. If anyone on this site has been offended in any way by me, my posts, or my comments, I sincerely apologize to you. Most of the people that footprint this site have my email address. If you'd like for me not to comment on your pet's site, I will respect your wishes to a tee. If not, I'll continue to represent my little gurl, Dollie, as she always lived her life and would want me to, I'm sure, as one who loved life, laughter and her daddy.
May God bless you all.
Sincerely, Richard Cothran--dollie.critters.com
10-30-2007 9:35 AM -- By: Kathie, Critters.com memorial: BROOKE Memorial HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROOKE!!!!! WE All miss u!!
we send you Love from Home....
10-30-2007 9:04 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Trying to catch up!
OK so Nvwati's Celebration of Life/Memorial Feast was held on Sunday. It was beautiful! I took tons of pictures in one of those disposable cameras ecause my digital decided not to work Sunday morning. I also took pictures of Yukon Jack, our new family member. Lo and Behold! On the way to the drugstore yesterday I lost the camera! I scooted up and down several times looking for it to no avail. I guess Nvwati wanted the memories of his event to be held in our hearts and not in picture form.............. or something.
UPDATE ON MKWAA
Mkwaa seems to be doing a bit better. She is letting Yukon Jack know she is alpha and no questions asked about it. I can't say she loves him yet but she .......... well.......... she tolerates him lol.
Yukon on the other hand is HUGE! He has the cutest little face like that of an overgrown teddy bear! He likes to cuddle too!
I do not look at him and see Nvwati. They are nowhere alike. Yukon does not sing, does not tell me stories, and does not strut his beauty like my beloved Nvwati did. He has his own sweetness though. His own traits and is settling in here fine.
I have to agree that the people who found their way to Critters.com are by far some of the sweetest people who share in our deep deep sorrow yet can rejoice in laughter at our furbabies tactics at the Bridge.
Now that I am getting to know your babies more, when I get to the Bridge I'm going to have to stop to say hi to everyone before Nvwati leads me the rest of the way home!
Its beautiful here in Ontario. I love the Fall! Its so beautiful with all the colours of leaves, perfect scenerio to take more pictures. And I will. I Promise!
10-29-2007 11:11 PM -- By: Jeannie/Gypsy Rose mommy, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial Judy, (Blossom's mommy) Thank you for sharing the info on DiOGi and Matt-I read the memorial with heavy heart and tears in my eyes-it is a beautiful memorial. We should think of all the fine law enforcement officers who risk their lives each and everyday for us, to make our world a safer place to live.
