Charles, thank you so very much for stopping by to visit my precious angel Ebony. I want to thank you so very much for always being there for all of us. I have been a bit scarce the past few months due to illness. I am feeling better and hope to keep going uphill. Please always know that you and your precious kids are always in my thoughts. I am so blessed to have met another pet-parent that feels like I do, and one who truly understands the impact that our kids have on us. Blessing and many hugs sent to you and all your angels. Thank you for being who you are! We love you Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Cupcake and Xander. You have such a wonderful dad.

 Dear, wonderful, amazing Sammy, your angel day has come again here on Earth where we still measure Time ... but you don't any more, do you? You are ever youthful, ever free, and ever aware of your daddy's love. For you, it it always Now, and on that day when Charles' work here on earth is done and it's his time to go Home, there you will be and always will have been ... together. Your daddy's remembrances and tributes to you here have touched many people ... he always knew you were a star, Sammy, but now lots of other folks do too. Honoring your memory on the day your spirit soared. With affection from Ricki Roo's mommy.

Thinking of you Sammy …
Not just on your angel day, but always.
Luna flutters about waving her paws, sorry, mom did not have computer access ... then she sighs and smiles ... but I know you want to know what we did, so sit back, as she takes a sip of her coffee and explains.
There was a cool breeze blowing in from the north, the skies were clear and the clouds looked like cotton balls … as the sun gently shined over rainbow bridge. The grass was green and the patch where the children played began to grow! They frolicked and rolled in those tall blades of grass, as they stretched their necks up the softness was that of a feather ... the trees had many leaves in bloom and the birds were singing, but there was ONE TREE Sammy hadn’t noticed before … as he walked towards it … he sniffed, Butler nudged him by the leg and nodded, “yup, it’s a DOGWOOD”. Luna shook her head and pointed yonder, and as they looked surrounded by tall Dogwoods in full bloom was a tent,  a big beautiful white tent with sheer draped curtains, as they came closer they noticed it was filled with furniture the most plush furniture ever … soft and subtle cushions, recliners and silk hammocks … The kids all ran, and Luke started gaining speed … trying to catch Toby, Dale was right behind them, then Butler, Sammy, and Luna … but as they reached the tent, the lights began to dim, Yup, Luna dimmed the sky, and white lights from the horizon shined upon them, as they stood quiet all the STARS began to appear … Luna walked over to Sammy and said, do you see those bright white lights, that’s the pure softness of our parents love, and no matter how long, far or wide their love will always find us! Sammy smiled; he knew his dad was thinking of him at that moment.
No matter the fields they roam, they will always be home cradled in the softness of our thoughts and within our hearts … and one day we will meet again. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Dearest Handsome Sammy: I know that you are looking down on your Dad and remembering all the good times you shared. The day you met one another is etched on your memory, I'm sure. Sammy, you are one of the luckiest dogs in the entire world to have found the best Dad you could ever ask for. You helped make your Dad who he is today..he is such a good person and continues to rescue PB's, always following the experience he started with you. You are one lucky, lucky guy. Happy Angel Day and know that we all love you and the rest of our friends and babies who are with you. We'll all be together one day. xoxoxo Pat

Dear Charles:

I wanted to stop by to honor and remember your precious Sammy on his 5th Angel Day.  Somehow I just remembered today was his special day.  I know how much you miss your sweet boy, but I also know how very blessed Sammy was to have found you on that fateful day so many years ago and to have had you as his loving Dad.  I send you both a big hug and my warmest wishes.

04-07-2013 1:08 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

 My Dear friend Charles,

Having Princess's Angles Day less than a week ago I can truly say I empathize with your feeling for this day. These difficult days would be almost impossible to deal with without you and my others critters friends. 


I am sure Sammy and Princess have crossed paths and are exchanging stories of their time with us here on earth. Perhaps in doing so they will bark or jump with joy and stir up a bit of angel dust that will fall your way. Should you feel that whisper of a touch know it is your son Sammy sending love your way as you think of him as he does you. Hugs to you by dear friend.

Also lots of things happening in the family--some good, some not.......

Take care-Charles.

“There’s a man I know who lives below

With a heart so big and true,

His love remains in my heart within this sky so blue.

He has touched my life in many ways this man so big and strong,

The gift of laughter and friendship made has helped my heaven’s song.

He comforted my days with long winding walks then hugged me oh so tight,

This man I know who lives below still remains within my sight.

I guard him every single day wherever he may roam,

These angel wings are strong you know they help me carry me home.

For home is where the heart still lives for that is what they say,

For this friend I know, my Dad below I would have it no other way.

His smile can light up a mountain top if only he would know,

His smile lives within my heart and helps me just to grow.

For a man like this a very dear friend so faithful and so kind,

That I asked Jesus for just one wish that he could help me to find.

That my spirit lives within his smile and every good deed that’s done,

I still feel his kindness right here up above the heaven’s sweet sun.

So thank you Jesus for the golden gift that was given once to me,

A friendship blessed for 15 longs years that lasts until eternity.

So when you see this man with the big brown eyes and a smile so very wide

Tell him just once my head hangs high and my heart still filled with pride.

Ask him to look up at the sky whenever he is feeling down,

I’ll send him a hug along with some love to let him know I’m around.

I look at him still with so much love I bark they heavens so very loud,

Sending it down to my Dad below letting him know I am so proud.”

So if you happen to see such a man like this who’s heart is made of gold,

Tell him just this if you would I’ll be there as he grows old.

Then we’ll meet one day up above and I’ll join my very dear friend,

We’ll walk through the hill with the brightest sun that roams through heavens bend.”

Bless amazing, giving, adorable, tender, caring, compassionate and brave Sammy, and Dad Charles, on beloved Sammy's 5yr Angel day.

In addition to the love and devoton evident in your memorial for Sammy, Charles, you have my ongoing appreciation for the genuine concern for others and their kids, that you demonstrate every day.

My little Cinnie thought she was a Pit Bull at times, at least what most people associate with Pits, but you know how Dachshunds are.  In the end devotion and unconditional love is the name of their game.

Bless you for sharing your home and life with with Sammy and his siblings, and for advocating on behalf of this terribly misunderstood breed.  Unfortunately my beloved Brutus lived in the pre-digital age, but I'm working on getting some photos from my ex-wife.  She was a great  mother to Brutus, so I'm hoping to get them soon.  When I do. the first place I'm sending a photo is to you.  As mentioned before, raised in an loving home there is no more devoted or faithful kid than souls like your Sammy and (most of) his siblings.

Bless gentle spirits and Angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your entire family of two and four legged souls.  You are a generous, caring and decent man, Charles, which I'm sure you babies knew right from the start.  They truly will be with you forever.

Bless you always

Sammy & Charles,  Just wanted to thank you guys for checking in on my beautiful Cinnamon.  Cinnie and I have, of course, will be leaving a tribute in the next day or two for Sammy in honor of his Angel day.
