you are an absolute sweetheart to think of me and the family....You know your note could not have come at a better time...I was having a difficult day today and was thinking of my precious Shadow and how much I missed him. So I cannot thank you enough for your kindness! This has been a true blessing to get to know others who loved their furry family as much as we did. I love looking at your precious Dollie....What a beautiful girl! I am sending out to you happy thoughts...of times had with your precious girl! May God bless you Richard with the kindness returned for that is what you have bestowed on many others. Blessings to you, Vikki-Shadows Mom

Richard, thanks for visiting Marley's memorial and taking the time to write. The last 10-days have been really hard for me, but the messages from people like yourself have really helped me cope with losing my boy Marley. I'll make sure he knows to take it easy on Dollie when they are playing at Rainbow's Bridge!

Dear Richard, I had to look at your photos of your sweet girl again after reading your thoughtful message. She is such a little cutie and what a face! I hope you are having some smile-filled days knowing that Dollie and my Chester are playing up at the Bridge. You are such a loving and devoted daddy! Take good care! Bethany

Hi Dollie & her daddy,
Did you see that display of twinkle star last night, we must have lit up the sky ... Did you feel that breeze today? We're sending all our love out on a gentle breeze. Today my mom walked through Central Park without me for the first time, she looked up at the trees, she listened to a few musicians, and while she watched a few people rollerskating ... a gentle breeze went by I saw her touch her face, she looked up; I know she was thinking about me, I could feel it!
Dollie are you still thinking about those kisses, you're still smiling, let me explain ... last nite your daddy was dreaming, he wanted nothing more than to pick you up and smother you with lil' kisses ... so I did. YesI know yourface was all wet but my tail waswagging so fast you dried off pretty quicky. Dollie, you just stood there, you looked up at me and started wagging your tail .... was it cause you knew those kissses were sent by your daddy? I love you Dollie, you too Dollie's Daddy. Always, Luna & her mom
PS: u guys are just too funny sometimes! tee hee.
PS: Thank you for taking me under your wing, thank you for showing me you care, thank you for holding me when I'm scared, thank you for letting me know I am loved, and for being there when I need you ... remember i'm just a little girl, i'm sometimes i'm just scared... I love you all, Luna

richard--i read your forum post--you have helped and raised up so many heart-sick people, it worried me to read that...please take it to your heart quickly, that these little children, whether furry or soft skinned, never would want their family that loves them to suffer and have any darkness in their days..where they go, there is no dark, there is no sad, there is only gladness and most likely, much playing..dollie wishes you no sadness, and i could only imagine that a young child, fuzzy OR smooth, would be puzzled as to why any of us cries, i can only think that they would be giddy thinking of the happiness that awaits us at our time of joining them, whenever God should let us be called back..God bless you Richard-you dont know me, but i pray for you, for your friends here, for all the little children that we miss..a mix of sadness and joy is a common thread we all share here, and i hope your heart will lighten, because i think the devil may laugh when we start to falter a bit..Dollie is still a little sweetie, i believe that nobody ever stops, and she still needs you to be her tough but soft hearted pop...

Richard ... just stopped by to visit Dollie's memorial again and to say Hi to ayou.
I know you miss your little gurl as much as I miss my boy Sammy. Sammy and Dollie are good friends and friends with all the other babies at Rainbow Bridge.
I, too, am so thankful for all the wonderful people who have left messages on Sammy's memorial ... it comforts me to know that there are so many wonderful people who love our babies as we love their's.
Keep in touch ....

Richard, I read Dollie's memorial and it made me cry thinking of her and my son Zach and thank you your kind words. It is hard to believe Zach has been gone just over a week, how have you made it over a year, through the faith in our Lord and I am leaning on HIM big time.
God bless you

Hi Dollie -
What a sweet and beautiful girl you are! Reading your poems and stories made me cry. :( See, I too have a little girl just like you - her name is Brandi and she is a cutie-pie Yorkie just like you.
I'm so glad you had a wonderful and loving Daddy who obviously adores you and misses you dearly. Many thanks to your Daddy for sharing your adorable pics of of the sweet life you both shared.

Hi Dollie, I had a real blast last nite!I'm so grateful to have you as my friends ... Toby is a character, always thinking; I just wanted to make sure u knew incase u couldn't c but he I noticed he only has iii's for u. I have a love, his name is Mr. Ling, I had to leave him behind with my mom, I miss them so(see photos in my album). When we first met I had to wait a whole month till I was old enough and he was interested in me (I was only 4 1/2 months at the time), when when we hooked up there was no separating us. He was 14 months old and we've never been apart since. I remember when the buzzer rang one night, I raced to the door and went to sit in front of the elevator to wait for him, imagine my surprise when it was chinese food delivery, I walked right past him and looked for my best friend...mom would have to pick me up and bring me inside, I would not take no for an answer ... she would call nancy and I would know that later on I would be seeing Mr. Ling. When we played outside, people would stop and stare are us, they never saw two dogs interacting like we did, one man looked atmy mom and said, "they should get a room", she laughed ... beacuse we were playing in front of a hotel in Midtown. teehee, he adored me and I loved everything about him ... now on his walks he still stops in front of my bldg and looks up, his mom tell him, "no sweetie, Luna's not there anymore, she in heaven now" and he continued on his way. I know it has been hard on my mom but I miss my best friend too. I would like to send him a special message to let him know that I'm here, I'm fine, and I'm thinking of him too! Love always, Luna

Good morning Dollie! How are you today? I love your dad so much and I think someday we need to have a reunion with people from critters because it has united us as one! WE all know how the other person feels. You are just so sweet dollie. I have to tell you last night I took a Tylenol Simply Sleep because I haven't been able to sleep. I drifted off into a deep sleep and came across big green rolling hills with little and big dogs,cats running all around. I remember I was looking for my Scooter and I kept calling out his name but you all were running so hard and having so much fun, and several times little Yorkies would look my way...maybe you, Tater, Toby...I'm not sure, but I could sense my Scooter looking at me too. I felt he was saying he was ok and having so much fun. There were some people there too and one many took me to the top of a hill and when I looked down I saw so many animals and it was just beautiful. I wanted to chase and get my Scooter to bring him back but then I was escorted away..I woke once last night and then went back to the same dream. It was beautiful. All of you looked so happy in such a pretty place. dollie I got to pet a Yorkie yesterday and it brought so many tears. It was a little girl like you and about your size. The lady had 3 but one came to be with all of you, and now she has one older one and this little baby young one. It was so sweet and looked just like you. I wanted to bring her home, but then her mom would have been sad. Give my Scooter a puppy hug and let him know I think about him all of the time. I love you Dollie...Scooters mom JO

Thank you for being the special man that you are, for sharing, caring and giving of yourself to help a friend in need, your kindness has touched the hearts of many, including mine. Thoughts of you, your lil'gurl Dollie, and all the wonderful friends & angels I've met at critters, I carry of piece of each of you with me. I feel very fortunate to have met all you wonderful people and in some small measure return some of the kindness you have bestowed upon me. All the parents and their little angels, always in my thoughts, always in my prayers ... Nadine (Luna's mom)

I know you feel sad and alone, daily activities are a burden, me too... I find it hard to get up in the morning but slowly I do, it takes me 4 xs longer to complete any task, the first 3 months all I could do was show up, I was an emotional wreck, but what should we expect?
...after caring for such a lovely lil' gurl for so many wonderful years you miss her, and all that she was, the way she would walk, or bark, the tiny things she would do that would put a smile on your face and make you feel so proud ... that sheís your lil' gurl and you are her daddy. You're still her daddy, that will never change. The joy this little angel gave you, how she filled your heart with so much love, all these things are because all dogs are pure in heart, that's what binds us to them, they are not as individual as we are, they have a combined soul, made of all the wonderful things puppies are; but what they have that is different is their spirit, their temperament, their drive and the way they carry themselves, their personalities Ö all these things are uniquely their own. They do not keep track of rights and wrongs, when you were late, if dinner was on time; they are just happy when they are with you, they light up when you walk through the door, they are focused on you and only you, true love in the purest form ... is there any wonder how we can forget or even think of living without it once it has touched out lives ... you are one of the fortunate that has been blessed with the honor to love and be loved by one very special lil' gurl, the love you share is uniquely your own ... we all have our loves individual as we are, but yet they are the same, the feelings we have areÖ we love them whole heartily.. Their bodies are no longer with us, we can not touch their hair, look in to their eyes, but we can with our heart. Yes I want my baby girl right next to me where she belongs and I would do anything I could if that were possible, but itís not. Lilí Dollie will never forget you, she loves you more than you could ever love her, (even if you think thatís impossible), its true! You are ingrained in her heart; together you are one, complete & satisfied. So when we feel blue itís just because we miss them so, is there any wonder why after such a love. Some people go through their lives never experiencing such a bond, they have no idea what itís all about Ö they are the ones being cheated because they were not able to give of themselves completely and unselfishly. Your lilí Dollie and all her terrific friends smile down from the heavens, they watch you, youíre the buzz of the town over there, your Dollie still makes you proud Ö hold your head high Richard, you are one of the few and Iím proud to call you my friend. Nadine (Lunaís mom).
Please know I feel sad and I miss my little girl too, but I would have never changed a moment of my grief for a lifetime of never knowing her. You have many wonderful years full of special memories the two of you shared, you were blessed Richard and your lilí Dollie too. My little girl meant the world to me as did you sweet Dollie bug, and I would do anything to be right by her side and it didnít matter what Ö but thatís not reality Ö I just have to till itís my time. I remember when I was feeling sad someone wrote me, ďYou have a friend meĒ. Iím proud to call you my friend. I Love you Dollie bug, I love you Luna angel. I love you Richard and my entire friends that have helped me with the loss of my little angel. Nadine (Lunaís mom)

Richard and Dollie...thank you for thinking of us. It means alot to hear from our friends on milestone days. For some reason, the 3 month mark has been difficult for me...it has been a tough couple of weeks.
Richard...I hope that you are doing ok, and that you find comfort in knowing that you have a very special little angel always watching over you.
Dollie...when you see my "little girl", give her a big hug and kiss from me, and be sure to remind her to be a good girl.
Love to you both...Michele

I see Brandy beat me to the punch!
Hi Richard, thank you for the check-in. It means alot when I hear form someone who loves their little ones in Rainbow Bridge as much as I love my Rainbow Bridge Angels. I really get moved by how much Dollie is loved and I love her too. She is such a sweet spirit, her eyes speak to me when I see her picture. The reflection of love in her eyes show that she loves you as much, if not a bit more than you love her. It may not seem possible to you that she may love you more, but she is watching over you and really feeling a great deal of love. She wishes you comfort and joy, she smiles when she senses you thinking of her. She wants you to think of only the good moments, when you think of her smile and please don't feel sad. Take care and God bless you, Gerardine

Hi Dollie, you little sweetheart. Thank you for taking good care of my Chica. She is probably playing around like the other puppies, including yourself. She is most likely not timid and maybe you helped her become a social butterfly. Dollie your sweet face I find comforting when I am sad. So thank you Dollie for reaching out to me and helping me through a tough time. You sure are a sweetie, God Bless you Gerardine
Hi Dollie It's Brandy, Chica's big sister. I just wanted to say hello and though you and Chica are goofing around in Rainbow Bridge, she still is my little sis and want to make sure you keep her in line. p.s. Don't let her know where you buried your treats,because she will horde them. I found a stash of rawhides in her old bed under the blanky. Well there, I gave you the run down on Chica, but seriously I want her to be happy even though I miss her. I know you are loved and missed too. Hey will you play with me when I go....but I won't be there too soon, I like it here. Take care Brandy ;)
