Dear Charles, Sammy, Bobby M, Gabby, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

You have all been on my mind and while I continue to be frustrated by the fact almost all of my posts go to review I will persist here on critters.  Spring is right around the corner and yesterday we enjoyed a lovely cool but bright and sunny day. Kit and Bailey rolled in the grass and soaked up the sun.  I hope you and the kids are well and that your aunt is holding her own. Hugs my friend.

Luna looks at the field of dreams, lifts her head as a cool breeze passes, then she notices Sammy ... sitting under the shade of the oak tree, nested in a soft patch of grass ... "dreaming" ... as thoughts of you fill his mind and his heart he whistles at the wind, sending a cool breeze flowing ... Have you felt it yet! Might nippy here in NY, we are in the teens again. Know our angels are all well, their hearts filled with our love, and even though we miss them thoughts of them can brighten up the darkest of days knowing they are there watching ...   just as the sun's warmth can be felt on the coldest of days ... Alive in our hearts they will always be, till we can each hold them in our arms again.  

I know they fill your heart as thoughts of them are daily on your mind ... know they know and can feel it too. Our angels know ... you see they have always known the pathways to our heart, that's why they choose us.  Luna, her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too! arf arf arf

 Dear Charles. I hope things are going well your way and that your aunt is settled in. You are such a good nephew. 

Timmee died on Valentine's day.He died snuggled in my arms. It was totally unexpected. He was 14.  I posted in the forums but it still hasn't been put least I can't find it. He was such a lover boy. I miss him horribly. I know that he was greated by Sammy, Gabby and BobM.

Take care, Charles and I'll try to be here more. xoxoxo Pat

 Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, BobM, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

Thank you for your kind communications. It is friends like you who help make the transition from life with to without my dad. It is certainly a change. I hope your aunt is doing okay and that you are taking care of yourself too.

Kit and Bailey do not want to go out into the rain (we are due for a week of it) so I may need to get raincoats! Funny how swims are fine but baths or rain are absolutely not.

Thank you again for your freindship. It means the world to me.

Dear Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Stopping by on this last day of Feb. with fresh hot coffee and Doris's Friday special, "hot cinnamon rolls" to get your day and weekend off to a good start. I hope all is going well out your way and that spring is in the air. I certainly am looking forward to spring as it has been the coldest winter on record as well as more snow than I have ever seen.

Tyson and Dozer as well as Samantha, Taz and all the shelter furkids are looking forward to spring as well as they are getting bored with being indoors. It's hard to keep them entertained indoors but we try . Dozer is doing real well. He turned a year old on Feb26. My how time flies!  He gets along with Tyson and Samantha,Taz and all the shelter kids. He has a very easy going personality. He is so much like my Toby but he does have his own personality also. I am taking Tyson, Dozer, and Samantha for their yearly checkups at the vets today.I have never taken all three together but don't think ,I will have any problem as they all listen real well. I will promise them a Dairy Queen treat after their appointments. I am sure that will work. HaHa.

Thank you for your recent and kind posts as always.

Have a grand day and weekend.

Sending hugs across the miles .

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Friday morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M....... Cupcake, Xander and Bentley. Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and Doris's freshly baked Cinnamon rolls to get your weekend off to a good start.

I hope all is well out your way and that your Aunt is doing as good as can be expected. Now with your work load getting somewhat easier, I hope you can take some time for yourself. We all need to do that occasionally.

We are getting more snow today and the winds are cold. We are all certainly looking forward to spring around here.

Thank you so much for your recent visits and kind posts as always. Have a grand weekend and don't forget to take some time for yourself.

Sending hugs across the miles from here to there.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter. {That includes Samantha and Taz} "smile."

So sorry I missed Sammy's birthday.  My health sort of felt apart after Christmas & I have been going through some stuff, so I have not been online or on Critters -- so sorry.  I have been a bit worried about you and I hope that you are okay, as I did not hear from you at the holidays which made me concerned.  Just know that I have been thinking of you and "the kids" and I am wishing you well.... always.  Hugs to you.

A bit late--but wishing Sammy a very HAPPY belated Valentine B-day.

It has been one snow storm w/ice after another here and the digging out process/checking pipes/checking for ice dams leaves little time to be online. I am going to name my house Dr. Z. Ice Castle #2! :-O

Hope all is well,

♥Maddie & Lizzies mom, Sherri

Sammy & Charles,

Your pal's Cinnamon and Bruce just stopping by a few days early to pay our respects to our loving, thoughtful, generous, devoted, smart, determined, brave and gentle man Sammy, and Dad Charles and family, on beloved Sammy's 21st birthday.  

Spoken from the heart, Charles, but as I've told you before, I am in awe of the support and caring you've shared with so many others here at Critters over the years.  And of course, setting an example for all with the ongoing love and devotion you share with you beloved son Sammy, and Gabby and Bob M, each and every day.

I know, Sammy, that my amazing little Dachshund angel Cinnamon couldn't think of anything she'd rather do than spend your birhtday with you, and your sister & brother Gabby and Bob M. at the bridge.  WHAT A GRAND TIME Sammy will have, with so many special angel friends.     


I hope you're feeling better, Charles, and know that you and your Sammy, Gabby and Bob M (& JJ & JR, too), and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Peace & Love, and a happy birthday! 

Cinnamon & Bruce

02-10-2014 7:37 PM -- By: Luna,  From: as Sammy's Birthday approaches  

Their LOVE surrounds us always ... Luna smiles as she begins to whisper, seems a special little boy is having a party this Valentines Day, painting the town Red with their  love ... "Happy Birthday Sammy!"
All across the bridge things are happening, from the love letters sent on the flake of newly fallen snow, as if each flake was a letter, and the snow fall tell us their story; or the star twinkle and shine as they glide through the atmosphere, letting us know they are happy;  or the sounds of music can be heard on the quiet nights, as their sweet melody plays on in our mind ... their LOVE will always surrond us!
May you know our angels will always fill our heart, till the day they agagin fill our arms. Sending hugs and al ur love, today and always, Luna & her mom Nadine

 Hi Charles,Sammy and All Glad to finally hear from YOU didnt know what had happened so welcome back guys.Really been a bugger of a winter here this year.10 below day time highs most of the winter and cant ever remember that lasting as long as that in my 58 years so take care guys thanks again for the visit 

With Love Rowdy and Me

02-05-2014 12:51 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Brucer,  From: Rainbow Bridge & PA  

Sammy, Gabby & Bob M, and Charles,

I sound like a broken record, Charles, but it truly is always great to hear from you, your kids, and your angels. 

We've been blasted by a series of storms since November of last year, with today's storm heavy on the ice and freezing rain.  Nice.  We just got about 10 inches of snow on Monday, and now have a whopper coming along for this weekend, they say.

I'm glad your dear Cupcake, Xander and Bentley were there to help in your battle with the flu.  Take care of yourself, Charles, your three babies have had a busy winter so far.  Of course they know full well, that as you have in the past, you'd do anything for them.

I believe that the Bridge is an even better than we can imagine, Charles.  No matter how generous or kind we are as humans, the concept of all kinds of beautiful, innocent and loving souls and angels getting along, and comforting and loving each other regardless of how different they are, is not in sync with how most people live their lives. 

I think that's one of the reasons Critters is such a special place, Charles, we, literally, wear our hearts on our sleeve when it comes to our amazing angels like your Sammy. Gabby and Bob M, and my little Cinnamon & her half brother Brutus and my other kids.

I think our kids all love, protect and respect each other, and that they do watch over us in their own way.  I have had a thought in my head, about how Cinnie, and Brutus and his brothers/sisters, met, but it's literally too emotional for me to handle.   

They are all hanging out together, Charles, Princess and Sammy, Gabby & Bob M, Molly and Rowdy, BJ and Jake, my Cinnamon & Brutus, Luke and Luna, and they will all be here February 14th, to mark your beloved Sammy's 21st birthday.

Get well, Charles, and as always let your babies and angels know they are loved and respected every day.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

02-03-2014 12:39 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Morning Charlesm Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and your fur-babies!

Sending sweet thoughts your way, knowing the love remains, nestled deep within your heart ... knowing one day we will see you again. Luna twists and shouts, as all our loved ones dance upon the stars, and in our s! (hugs) Luna & her mom Nadine
