Dear Michelles ,Beautiful Princess Baby Girl and family.
I just wanted to stop by and say Hello as I had some free computer time and hope all is well out your way. Fall is definately here and with that comes the work of yard cleanup and much raking of leaves. I have been busy putting things away for the winter as well as getting my flower beds,rock gardens, etc. ready for the winter. I am looking forward to the first snowfall but not looking forward to the extreme cold days. Hopefully we don't get too cold of a winter... I know my little Dozer will try to catch all the flakes when he sees the snow flakes as most puppies seem to do. I have to go out and buy him a jacket but the pet stores don't have them in yet. I did manage to buy him a couple of sweathers so far though. I will get some pictures of him dressed in them when he will sit long enough for me to take a picture of him. He is so full of energy and just has no time to sit quiet. HaHa...... Anyway I hope all is well with you and the kids. Know that you are thought of often....... Hugs

Thank you so much for stopping by and remembering JoJo on his 1ST. Angelversary. Although it was a very emotional day for me, it's family and friends such as yourself who understand the debt of pain after losing a furchild, that makes it some easier.
Thank you so much for all of your support and continued friendship through the years and especially this past year which was a very hard year for me.
Thank you again for everything. I hope all is well out your way. I will write in a few days. I have to get caught up with my Thankyous.
HugsLauvern and JoJo.

Hello Michelle & Beautiful Princess-
Just stopping by to say Hi! XO

Dearest Michelle and precious Princess .. have been thinking of you and thought I'd visit Princess's memorial. Hoping all is well your way. Things here are going fine .. I was very sick a week ago with bad stomach pain and then I ended up with sinus problems and fever blisters in my nose. I am, though, starting to feel better ... I have too, as my aunt needs me to be strong to help her.
I think the stress of it all just hit me and now I try to get better.
Always know that you are always thought of and hoping all is well. Fall is almost upon us .. and then Winter and I hate the cold .. but cannot stop the seasons.
Sending hugs through the miles .....

Michelle & Princess,
Once again it's so very good to her from you two lovely ladies. Cinnamon often speaks of Princess, and what an especailly wise & loving angel she is.
We've had a crzay summer near Philly, with record breaking heat in July, coupled with record breaking rainfall throughout the summer. When it's sunny I can literally see and feel my beloved little Cinnie following the sun around the house, sometimes to the point of overheating. A quick trip to the watter bowl, then RIGHT back to the sun, after plopping down with a big sigh. I miss my little Cookie so very much. And of course Dachshunds are the undisputed kings (and queens) of the wet and dirty underbellie brigade!
I finally met Golden Hunter today (sunrise; sunset; the sun!). What an honor. Princess and her Golden pals are just such generous and tender souls.
As always, Michelle, thank you for being such an important part of the Crtters community. I say my prayers for Skye, and Carole Turner, and Forest, and all other Moms and Dads in need, for it's our shared love and respect for the beautiful souls here on Critters that makes this such a special place.
Bless you, Michelle, and your family, angels Princess, and Marquisea, and of course, beloved Bailey and Kit. Cinnie and I are already looking forward to your next visit!
Cinnamon & Bruce

My Dearest Friends Michelle and precious Princess .. Kit and Bailey .. THANK YOU for your visit and kind posting.
Well, I have been so busy .. BUT .. I was so sick this past weekend with what the doctor's office said is "the stomach flu bug" .. and the pain was so bad I almost drove myself to the ER. I drank Ginger Tea and only have had chicken broth since Saturday ... but am feeling better today. Not 100%, but better.
I am at work today but was not here yesterday.
Hoping all is well your way ... Cupcake is doing fine. Once she gets up from lying down, she limps a bit then is ready to run outside and run she does. I think with time, her muscles will get stronger and she won't limp any more.
My Aunt had her PET scan yesterday that my cousin took her as I was sick .. and won't get results until tomorrow (Thursday). She was put on oxygen which has helped so much. Thank you for the continued prayers for my Aunt and for myself.
Hugs to all from your friends here in Santa Fe, NM.

Dear Michelle and Princess Baby Girl. Thank you for remembering Toby on his 1st. Angelversary. Although it has been a very hard day and year for me,it's friends such as yourself who I know feel the dept of the pain in losing a furchild"in my case two within two weeks" makes things more bearable to accept. I now am facing JoJo's 1st Angelday on the 11th. which I know will be emotional as well but I hope that after that day, I can get back to being myself.These marker days,especially the first, I think are sometimes harder than the day they left as it seems so hard to think happy thoughts of their lives with us....Thank you for your support throughout this past year. I don't know how I could have made it this far without friends such as yourself who understand. I thank you....... Hugs....

My Dearest Michelle and precious Princess .. Thank You so much for the visit and kind words. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your visits and kind words always.
So many others have left Critters and their furkids .. BUT .. we have hung on and I know we will NEVER leave our furkid's memorial. This is where I can come and see my beautiful friend's furkid's memorial .. and also that of my furkid's. I can come and honor him and those of my friends.
Cupcake is walking better on her right rear leg .. but still has limp on occasion but it is only a few days after surgery. I am hopeful that once we get her leg all muscled-up, she will be good to go. I have to start taking her on long walks to build-up that leg muscle as her right rear leg is much smaller in muscle than her left.
Today, we take my Aunt to the oncologist .. so we shall see what type of treatment plan is in store. My Aunt has just slept through the days ... I think she is depressed after her heart attack and now diagnosed with cancer ... I will have to mention this to the doctor.
Sending hugs through the miles .... and send out love to you and the furkids.

Dear Michelle and pretty girl Princess. I just wanted to stop by and say hello as I was on here. I hope all is well out your way.
We have had some nice sunny days but not too hot, which has been great. We have been spending most of our days outside before the snow starts to fly which isn't that far away. Summer is certainly slipping by on us as I am sure it is everywhere. Some of my summer flowers have started to wither away and my fall flowers are in full bloom as well as the trees out in the country are slowly starting to change colors.That's a good sign that winter isn't that far away.
I hope the fur kids are all doing well....... My Dozer is growing like a wild weed and gets along so well with my boxer "Tyson". He is so obedient which makes him so loveable as well.
Anyway just wanted you to know,although I haven't been on here much as of late,my friends here on Critters are never far from my thoughts.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer.I hope your weather is cooperating with you.
Sending hugs across the miles.

My Dearest Michelle and precious Princess ... have been thinking of you all .. and wanted to drop in and say "HI" and hoping all is well your way.
Michelle, please forgive me for not visiting sooner, but I have been helping my aunt, as you know, and just been hectic at work.
Always know, though, that you are not far from my thoughts and I appreciate you and your furkids more than these words can say.
Sending lots of hugs your way ....

Michelle & Princess,
As always thank you for stopping by, No matter when we hear from you or and no matter whant the subject, we . . . Cinnie loves to hear from and about Princess . . . are always interested and inspired.
I think the secret to the devotion I and others have towards Dachshunds has a lot to do with their attitude about life, and their humans. While small (relatively) in stature, they a fierce and great little athletes, and truly do believe they are much bigger dogs. That having be said, I also think they have an innate sense, given their size, of how important their people are to their well being, and that in turn results in devotion that must be experienced to be believed. Other than work during the week, and the occasional meal out, Cinnamon was included in our plans. And we were always the better for it.
The loss of every amazing canine or feline soul that I've loved has had a real impact on my life, just as they did when they shared life and love with me and my family. I really don't know any other way.
I still haven't reached a point mentally where I can write down and share with others my Pookie's last days and weeks in any kind of detail, but as I mentioned before the love and concern she showed toward her family was off the charts.
Sorry, Princess, I went on for so long, I know you've got a lot of angel work to do.
Thank you, Michelle, for caring so much about the Critter's community. Yours is and will always be a good, tender and caring heart.
Bruce & Cinnamon

Dear Michelle and pretty Princess Baby Girl. Thank you for stopping by and remembering Kc and JoJo on their birthday .Your visits and kind posts are always appreciated by me.
i know you are busy helping a friend move. I hope your weather has been better then ours. We went to the lake for a few days but it rained"poured" continuously as well as there was a tornado watch on. Needless to say we left and went and visited friends in Grand Forks ND instead which was nice. The weather here has been so mixed up even the weather man can't get it right. I hope to be able to get to the lake and enjoy some boating this summer before the snow flies.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying your summer .

Dearest Michelle: I read on Rowdy's guest page that you have been receiving unwanted messages here. I am so sorry because I know how upsetting it is. I got them on Faye's page right after she died and it was a trauma all over again.
How are you? I hope the sun is shining and your flowers are glowing.
I have kept both pages on "review".. Again, I'm sorry. xoxoxo Pat

My Dearest Friends Michelle and precious Princess .. stopping by to wish you a wonderful weekend. Hoping all is well your way.
Things here have been hectic for me as my elder aunt who raised me has been ill and was released from the hospital yesterday .. so I had to help her home. She didn't want me to stay the night .. but had to go at 2:30 am this morning (Friday) as she had fell going to the bathroom .. and she was able to call me .. so I had to drive from my home .. 20 minutes away .. to pick her up and put her in bed.
She is so determined to live alone .. which I admire .. but there may come a time ....... I may have to encourage her to live in an assisted living environment.
Sending hugs through the miles.

Dearest Michelle and precious Princess and Kit and Bailey ... just wanted to say "HI" and to make sure all is well your way.
Things here are hectic these days. I have an elder aunt who is in ICU and having to go to her home to feed her kitty, run back to the hospital .. back to work and back and forth .. it is hectic .. but .. I will do what it takes for my Aunt as she helped raise me when my momma, her sister, died when I was only 5 .. so I feel I need to help her now.
Hoping all is well your way and know we send lots of hugs and love over the miles .....
07-18-2013 7:45 PM -- By: Bruce & Cinnamon, From: PA
Michelle & Princess,
As we always are, Cinnie and I thrilled to hear from you guys and excited by the news that Kit and Bailey did so well!
Great work done there by EGRR, not suprising in the least with wonderful people like you involved, Michelle, inspired by your amazing Princess. My brother is a transplant, or was, from back east here, but he's been on Whidbey Island for more than 20yrs now, so I guess he's a native now!
So very sad that this terrible economy has doubled and trippled the work of rescue organizations like EGRR. Good people like you, Michelle, are few and far between.
I still drop by to read from Princess' memorial, and many others tended to so lovingly by our friends here on Critters. I find the common denominator of everlasting love and respect we have our angels to inspiring, although I've read many a paragraph through tears.
Bless you, Michelle, and sweet Princess. Stop by any time you can.
Bruce & Cinnamon
PS Dachshunds aren't great huggers as their 'reach' is somewhat limited. They make up for it by being among the greatest kissers, and snugglers, in the world! Cinnamon ALWAYS sends kisses & snuggles, your way!

Dearest Michelle and precious Princess .. Thank You for the visit and posting...it is always great to hear from my friends.
Cupcake is still limping .. but I take her to Dr. Gruda tomorrow (Friday) .. so I will ask him why she still limps. As for Xander and Bentley .. they are doing wonderful .. playing together .. and not into any trouble.
I have been on vacation this week .. but since Sunday, have been dealing with an elderly aunt who has been ill .. but today and tomorrow (Friday), I have to do much needed work around the house and my neighbor will help me install rain gutters .. so I can collect some rain water when it does rain .. hahahaha .. at least to water my plants.
I am glad you had a great time last weekend ... and always know we send lots of hugs your way. Visit as you can as I know you are busy. Sending hugs through the miles ....

Dear Michelle and adorable Princess, I haven't been on critters in a while, when I do, I love to peek in on you and Princess. She's just too sweet looking not to stop by. I hope all is well for you. I read below that you had some trouble on critters. That sucks! I was horribly hacked via Twitter and vowed to never go back there again, or any social media. I was surprised to hear that 'people' were abusing critters. Maybe they should read up on our pets' stories and learn a thing or two on how to act with grace and class! Anyhow, just wanted to say Hi and keep in touch. Take care my friend.
