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


I hope Xander is continuing to improve and that Fall is not too harsh for you in NM. It has come in with a flourish here with wet, very blustery weather with some thunder and lightening in the mix. Fortunately, except for some very loud claps the kids are not scared of it like some poor babies. We have managed to find enough relatively dry times to take our walks but it is tougher. I would often rather snuggle under the covers with the furry kids next to me but they push me to get out which is a good thing for all of us. 


Kit is continuing his water therapy and acupuncture and I am looking into some other therapies which might help his tendonitis. He is such an active boy it is very difficult to keep him quiet (I know you are all too familiar with that with Cupcake!) I try to keep his spirits up too with quieter play times like tug and hide 'n seek the toy. Stay warm and dry and give the kids each a treat for me.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little BobM.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  Thank you for your past few visits and of coarse the coffee and treats.I am happy to hear that Xander is doing well as is Cupcake. I am sure Cupcake and Bentley were overjoyed to see their brother come home as I am sure Xander was happy to be home again. I never did like to seperate my kids but when one had to be hospitalized, I had no choice as you know. It's so hard on the ones at home as they don't understand what happen and where their brother/sister went. I can imagine Cupcake and Bentley wouldn't leave Xander alone as they would have to sniff him down and make sure he is ok. HaHa....I took Dozer for his second set of puppy vaccinations yesterday ,although we were only gone about an hour,you would think we were gone for months as Tyson wouldn't leave him alone and followed him everywhere just to make sure he was ok.HaHa....... Have a good day. Sending hugs across the miles.... Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Charles & Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

We popped in, Charles, to say 'thanks' for your having visited with my beloved Cinnamon today, but my mesage went into the dreaded review bucket.

Let me just say that it is and will always remain an honor and privilege to have met a wonderful and caring person like you through Critters.  You are as true blue and genuine as a person can be, Charles, and Cinnie and I thank you for every single visit you've made, and always look forward to yoyr next one.

Bless you for being so kind to the Critter community as a whole, and for taking the time to become on of Cinnamon's, and my, special Critter's friends.

Bless you and your angles, Charles, and your beloved babies Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  And know my thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family always.

Bruce & Cinnamon

Charles and Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

A visit from you and your gang of angels, Charles, AND your beloved kids Xander, Cupcake and Bentley, is always a highpoint in Cinnie's day.  

Bless you, Charles, for continuing to honor all of our beloved and unforgettable souls here at Critters.  You, and Nancy, are true and faithful to the cause.  As I just mentioned to Nancy I'm sorry that so many tributes never see the light of day because of the recent changes at Critters.

For example, I tried to honor Brundel Seth Burke, a beloved member of the Pittbull & Am Staff club . . . he looks very much like my beloved Brutus, except Brutus coat was a shade darker . . . but there's no one to 'approve' the posts.

Of course, you remember & honor your amazing angels every day, Charles.  Just as Sammy, Gabby and Bob M loved you in life, they protect you and shepherd you from their post high above even now.

Thank you again my dear friend for stopping by, and for listening! 

Bless amazing angels Sammy, Gabby and (little) Bob M, beloved kids Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, and devoted Dad Charles who loves them so very much.  You and yours will remain in my thoughts and prayers. 

Bruce & Cinnamon

 Dear Charles: 

Thank you for stopping by.  I'm so very sorry to hear that your aunt is sick.  I know how very special she is to you and I am sure her illness is taking a toll on you.  I will indeed light a candle for her and say a prayer for you both.  Hang in there, Charles, as you go thru this difficult time with your loved one, and be comforted in knowing that you have friends who care.
Sending big HUGS your way.  Best wishes always - to you and all your furkids.

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

Thank you for your continued visits and kind posts as always.. Just wanted to visit a few on here as I have some free computer time this morning. Fall is certainly in the air and the yard cleanup,raking leaves,etc. are just around the corner.Although the days are still warm ,the nights are quite cool. We do need some rain as we haven't had any for a long time and things are begining to look dry. ...I hope Cupcake is continuing to do well and is running circles around her brothers which i am sure she is, Ha Ha.  I  have two puppy classes today which have 8 puppies each as well as my Dozer in both of them. One class isn't enough for him as he seems to think everything is FUN and  has no time for being serious.HaHa. He is such a little sweetheart  and I know I have been letting him get away with things he shouldn't be doing BUT what can I say?.HaHa. He is obedient but just wants to have fun,fun, fun. I believe Luke whispered in his ear that life was fun and Mom is a pushover, Ha. Luke was the same when he got to know me after the life he had for sixteen months before I rescued him. Then all was fun fun fun for awhile until he realized there were rules to follow as well which he did real well after learning what they were.. Have a good day and know that you are thought and asked about by all at Luke's shelter. .....Sending Hugs across the miles.

Thank you for your visit and ever so kind post in my kids guestbook. I am sure all here at the shelter will appreciate it as I do. ...... I walked into the aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls this morning so wanted to share a few and a fresh cup of hot coffee with you to start your week off....... It's begining to look like fall around here and soon the snow will be here.....I know Luke and Sammy will be on the lookout for furbabies in need and let me know about them in their own way.With the colder weather coming on there is always more babies in need..Although it is sad to see them all needing help, I certainly will do all I can to help them.......I hope things are as good as can be expected out your way. Know that we all think of you and send positive thoughts your way....... Sending Hugs along with the cin rolls and coffee from all at Luke's shelter.

Dear Charles.

Thank you for remembering us on JoJo's 1ST. Angelversary.Although it was a very emotional day for me, it's friends like yourself who understand and know the dept of the pain  of losing a furchild that helped make the day more bearable. I want to Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support,visits and kind words as always on my kids memorial pages and Thank you so much for all of your support and kindness in the past years and especially this past year which was a very hard year for me.Without all the support that I had received throughout the entire year from family and friends such as yourself , I don't know how I could have made it through this past year. I will never forget the kindness and encouragement that you had given me. I also want to Thank you for all of your posts and encouragement to all at Luke's shelter. Your posts do not go unnoticed by anyone there.

Thank you for all of your recent visits to my kids pages. I know I have not replied to many but please know I did see them as well as appreciate every one of them. It has been hard to come to Critters but I am working on getting back on track.

Thankyou again for everything.

Hugs . Lauvern and JoJo.

Love Rowdy and Me

09-11-2013 12:49 PM -- By: ,  From:  

Hi Charles, I know when it's my time I'll be running to that bridge with happy tears in my eyes, a smile of yearning, wanting and endless waiting that comes to an end  to the anticipated sounds of whimpering in excitement knowing my little girls will be there leading the pack ... if I happen to come upon you as I'm "Speeding through" I'll grab your coat and help you along  because I won't be walking.

When we think of those who have gone before us, the pain we feel knowing how much we miss them, then a subtle grace comes upon me and I realise all the while they here ~ still with me, I can feel them within. Then,  gentle smile appears on my face and my heart feels an inner warmth and glow only their love can bring. 

Forever and always  Nadine & her little girl Luna 


09-06-2013 7:35 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & PA  

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Cinnamon just wanted me to stop say what a joy it is ti have made wonderful forever angel friends like Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.  Cinnie also said that she has managed to introduce my beloved Brutus to Sammy, Gabby & Bob M already, while I'm still trying to get some photos of Brutus from my ex.     

Bless you, Charles, for continuing to welcome all of the new angels to Critters, and for being so genrous and kind to your extended Critter's family, as well. 

I was sorry to read somewhere that you'd been ill recently, and hope you're feeling better.

Bless you, Charles, your beautiful angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your sweet Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  I'm sure they tended to you while you were ill,  as I know their caring and love knows no bounds.

To a special man and good friend,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Dear Charles and furfamily,

I was thinking of you all when I sat down to begin my work day so I thought I would start the day by sending a quick note. I am hoping to find that Cupcake is on the mend and you are all preparing for fun fall activities. I also hope your aunt is fairing well. I know you are very busy trying to keep up with all of your duties at home ad at work but remember to take care of yourself as well. Hugs my friend.


08-30-2013 7:49 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Dear Charles. Thank you for remembering Toby on his 1st. Angelversary and thank you for all of your support ,especially in the past year which was a very hard year for me. Losing two of my kids just two weeks apart was almost more than I could take. I know you understand. Toby's Angelversary was a very emotional day for me but somehow I made it through. I now face JoJo's 1st on the 11th and hopefully I can begin to heal after that day.

Thank you for your continued visits and kind posts to my kids memorial pages. To think that you have some challenges in life with your sweet Cupcake and your aunt and yet take the time to think of me and my furkids means alot to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Lauvern and Toby

08-29-2013 1:16 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Luna winks at Charles, smiles and says, thank you ....


Ahh yes, Summer will come to a close and all the heat with it, then she sits under the shade of a big oak tree and stretches legs and rubs her paws in the grass ... rolls over on her tummy and says, “you know Charles, there is something SPECIAL about Winter” ... “yes I know it's cold but when you walk quietly by yourself looking upon the white snow as it glistens in  the moonlight, it seems as if it is heaven on earth and there is no prettier sight!  … and DON’T forget about the hot cocoa with whipped cream”, she licks her lips and smiles, then BLOWS a huge kiss, at that moment Sammy looks on with pride and a huge grin, along with Gabby and Bob M. by his side ~ Their love and ours will always surround you.

Big ((HUGS)) Luna & her mom Nadine, (Lily and Opal too “ Arf Arf”).

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

Thinking of you on this balmy day in the NW and hoping Cupcake is progressing with her recovery. We are never happy with our babies are not their best and I know youwill be stressed until she is back to herself completely.

I heard that a very dear friend lost her companion of 14-1/2 years. She was one of the first to be of comfort to me after Princess crossed the bridge. I always feel so helpless in these situations since there is really nothing you can say or do that takes away the pain of losing a family member.  I do not know what I would have done had I not found critters and the wonderful friends I have made here. So few truly understand the love we have for our children.

Take care of yourself as you care for CUpcake and your aunt. Hugs my friend. 

08-27-2013 9:59 AM -- By: Scott and Shannon Zeller,  From: Harrisburg, PA

Hi Charles-

Hope all is well with you!

Please tell Lauvern Thank You also for visiting Milo on his Angel Day, it means alot. I miss her and wish her the best!

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Just popped in to check up on Bentley, Cupcake and Xander, and of course to pay my respects to your beloved angels.

Your kids are all so beautiful, Charles.  My Brutus was a great 'talker', and never failed to let me know how he was feeling.  May you and your babies have many more years of long, involved and from the heart talks.

Again I must end by saying you are wonderful man and kind soul, Charles, and a loving forever Dad to all of your beloved angels and dear, sweet kids.
