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

Thank you for your recent posts. I have not been able to get on Critters for a couple of days now but finally got on today so thought I would stop by and say "Hi". I bet your Aunt's house is looking very nice now with all the work you have been doing there.

We have the shelter all painted up and the extended cat shelter all finished now.Everything is looking good and I am happy we are finished.

We have been having cooler days and lots of rain which is a good thing after all the hot and dry days.

Tyson, Dozer and myself had a wonderful time at the lake this past weekend and I now have the cottage closed up for the winter. I am now ready for the busy days which I am sure will be here as the weather gets colder.It happens every year. "The colder the weather, the more furbabies need help".

I hope the fur kids are all doing well as I am sure they are.

Sending Hugs through the miles.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

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

Thank you so much for remembering and honoring Toby on his Angelversary yesterday. Your thoughtfulness and kindness means alot to me.Although the day was filled with many mixed emotions,it turned out to be a great and productive day as we celebrated Toby's life.It has been two years since he had to go to Rainbow Bridge and one would think it would get easier to accept but to me it seems the longer it is the more I miss him.Sometimes I wish that I didn't love my furkids as I do which would make it much easier to accept when they leave BUT that will NEVER happen. Anyway Thanks again for your ongoing support and friendship.Have a grand weekend!!I am taking Tyson and Dozer to the lake for the weekend to spend some quality time with just the two of them.

Sammy, Gabby and little BobM.. Thank you for helping Toby celebrate his Angelversary at the Bridge. I am sure you all had alot of fun and treats.

Sending Hugs through the miles.

Lauvern and Toby.

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

You certainly have had a busy summer. Are you fixing the townhouse to sell? Quite a job I know having dealt with my dad's place. 

A visit to the doctor showed my bone is healing but that the splint I had caused some nerve compression/damage. If it is not better in a week or two I will have to go for PT or OT. Typing is hard so I apologize for this brief note.

The kids are well and we have enjoyed a good but somewhat too warm summer. A cool fall will be welcomed.

We are off for a short trip to Canada. Someday I hope we can meet Lauvern there. How wonderful would that be!

Thank you for thinking of us. Do not work too hard and give the kids all a treat from us.

 HI Charles, Handsome Sammy, Gabby & Bob M-

Charles, Thanks so much for remembering Milo on his Angel Day. It meant alot to me. its hard to believe it has been five years since he has passed. This time goes by so fast, but as you know, their Angel Days still bring back so many bittersweet memories, all good, but it is still hard. Hope all is well your way and you had a great summer. Sending hugs your way to you, that handsome Bentley, Cupcake and Xander! Thanks again Charles!

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

Thank you for all your visits and kind posts as always. As you know ,I have been quite busy and have not been here but my Critters friends are always in my thoughts.

Things here are going well as we prepare for more needy furbabies needing shelter with winter not too far away. I hope things are moving along at your Aunt's home and that you will soon be able to take time for yourself.

The nights here are getting cooler but the days are still hot and humid with a cool day at times which is very welcome by all. The fur babies appreciate the cooler days so that they can get out and run and play without getting too hot.

I will be taking Tyson and Dozer to the lake this weekend where we will spend quality time together. Although they come to the shelter with me daily,I don't get much alone time with just the two of them as all the shelter kids want my attention as well.

I hope all is well out your way and the fur kids are doing well as I am sure they are.

Sending hugs through the miles from all of us here at Luke's shelter.

 Dearest Charles and your Precious Family, Time for me to check in and say hello. We are all hot down here in Socorro, but the dogs are doing well, as long as we keep medicating them. A couple have several new issues that keep us trotting to our blessed vets. They are so wonderful to them. I hope all is well in your life and that you are loving every minute with Xander, Cupcake, and Bentley. I had three eye surgeries in the space of a couple of months, so have been kind of out of commission, but Praise the Lord, with two cataract surgeries, I can see the world like the Lord intended me too, without glasses or contacts!!! Bless you for all the love and care that you continue to share with everyone here on Critters, and we're sending along a sausage and beef green chile pizza for lunch!!! Please pass on my regards to Lauvern and all her kids at Luke's Shelter. Hugs, Carol You are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M - you know you are in my heart and I'm sorry I don't get to Critters much but I also know you guys know we never ever forget you - EVER! 

Hi, Charles, just dropping in, thinking of you and touching base.  All is well here, finally got that travel van I've been wanting.  In fact, Steve is driving it home from L.A. but think he's going the I-10 route.  If he's doing the 20, will stop and see you!  Hope all is well with you and the kids - sending love, as always!  xoxo

Thank you so much for the kind words to my Lucky he lived a very long life. It really helped me in this sad time. I know he is not suffering anymore and is very happy at the Rainbow Bridge. I have to say losing a pet is the hardest and biggest emotional loss for a person to experience but I have so many memories of my boy that he will never be forgotten.

08-20-2014 1:05 AM -- By: Cindy Andrews,  From: Windsor, ON  

Thank you so much for visiting Rusty's page and your kind words. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since I gave him my last kiss goodbye, and I am still devastated. It is nice to know I am not alone in my grief. You have truly honoured Sammy, Gabby and Bob M with your beautiful memorials to them, and I take comfort knowing that Rusty has new friends as he begins his new journey

08-19-2014 6:47 PM -- By: leeanne,  From: jackson, nj  

Hi Charles,

thanks so much for your kind words posted on my Nicky's guestbook. it is so nice to know there are such wonderful people out there such as yourself who love these furry angels as much as i do. Your Sammy is an absolutely beautiful boy who i am sure watches over you every day!

08-18-2014 8:31 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M & Charles,

As always, Charles, you continue to be a rock here at Critters even in spite of everything going on in your life. 

Just wanted to say thanks to you, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M for stopping by several times to vist with my precious little Cinnamon, and for continuing to share so much compassion and caring with so many of us here within the Critters community. 

It is always wonderful to get a visit from you and your angels, no matter what the occasion, perhaps even more so when there is no reason at all, just that you are such a good and kind man.

Hope you are continuing ot make progress on your Aunt's place, and that your property is now out of harm's way. 

Bless you, Charles, and your amazing angels, your family and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, today and every day.

Peace and Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gaby and Bob M, and your kids at home Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, ... Luna wags her tail, then sits next to Sammy who is watching the stars, and as each one sparkles and shines they sit back & relax, and mention all the things they are thankful for ... Luna turns her head to look at Sammy and as she does he smiles, then when he smiles his eyes start "Gleaming". We are thankful for all the times you gave us such great hugs and kisses, how you Always showed your affection and appreciation, your food, your bed and YOUR LOVE ... how when we looked at your face we could hear see and feel the pride knowing us has given you ... and the countless times we could feel the warmth of the smiles that appeared on your faces ... knowing YOU STILL smile with pride and knowing that our love still grows ... that this path we walk one day we will see each other again ... and gain all the love of a lifetime. Luna places her paw on top of Sammy's and gives him a little squeeze ... FOREVER AND ALWAYS. (Our Hugs) Luna & her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gaby, Bob M, Cupcake, Zander and Bentley,


It has been tough since I broke my arm a couple of weeks ago. Everything takes twice as long to do and I have a deadline for getting work accomplished.  Since I am in a soft cast I have probably used my arm more than I should so now I have tendonitis too. Getting old is definitely not for sissies! I know you have been working hard too. The time I have to walk and play with my two kids is the best time of the day. I know you feel the same about yours. Take care and know I think of you often.

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

Thank you for your recent  visits and kind posts as always. I hope that you are enjoying your weekend and not working to hard. We have been busy painting the interior of the shelter as it needed to be brightened up a bit as well as Byron, Bud and Lawrence are adding a addition to the cat area which will not only allow room for more needy kitties but also many more windows and ledges for the shelter kitties to be able to look outside and watch birds,squirrels,rabbits ,etc. as well as watch the dogs running around the yard.

It has been very hot  and humid here which I personally don't enjoy but can't change it so decided to do something inside and paint. The dogs are all enjoying swimming in the pond which helps them stay cool as well.

Sending hugs in the hot and humid breeze.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and all,

Seems like ages since I have been on critters. Last weekend I broke my arm (first broken bone I have ever had) so I am been keeping away from the computer as much as I can.  I hope you are well and enjoying the summer. So sorry to hear about the damage to your property. It has been very dry here too and there are fires everywhere. Very scary.

Take care and know I think you you often.

Luna looks upon Dad Charles and kids with her eyes shining so bright, then she looks at Sammy and they star to shine, as they each lift up their paws and wrap their loving arms around you ... (hugs). No Charles, I did not hear, I am so very sorry for your loss. Is this the house you live in or your vacation home, either way I am thinking of you all.

Good Friday Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little BobM....... Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Stopping by with some fresh hot coffee and Granny's fresh cinnamon rolls to get our weekend off to a good start. I know you will have a fun day tomorrow with your cousin and friend.

I hope all is well out your way and that they have them fires under control. Things are back to normal here and thankfully we did not get any damage to our properties as many did. We are going to the lake this weekend to get some boating in as they are now allowing boating and sking on the lake. Tyson and Dozer love going there as they have alot more freedom and they both love to swim and go for a boat ride. It's suppose to be a hot weekend so I am sure we will all enjoy the water.

Have a grand ,funfilled weekend as you celebrate your special day.

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

Thank you for all your recent visits and kind posts as always. They are much appreciated by myself and all here at Luke's shelter.

We are starting to get back to normal around here now but it has been hectic to say the least. We have had a few days with no rain which allowed the water levels to go down to almost normal. I can now get back to doing what I love to do and follow my "dream come true".I had some great news yesterday as I learnt of two new shelters going up around here which makes me so happy.There are never too many of them as there are so many furbabies needing shelter. I hope these buildings are ready for the winter as that is the time they are needed the most.

I hope things are well  out your way and the fur kids are all doing great..

Enjoy your outing with your friend and cousin this Saturday as you celebrate your Birthday as I am sure you will.

Sending hugs through the miles.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

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

Thank you for your recent visits and kind post as always.I am sorry it took me awhile to reply as I had been on vacation as you know but was forced to come back sooner than expected due to flooding around our summer cabin and the area around the shelter. The last few days have been hectic as we had to move the furbabies from Luke's shelter as well as help other shelters and people in the area of the emergency evacuation. Although our home was safe as we live within the city limits with a floodway all around that they do open up the gates if the water gets too high which it did. By doing so though, it causes small towns and surrounding areas to flood which included Luke's shelter as well as our summer cottage. Anyway things are slowly getting back to normal but many lost their homes which is so sad.....Lawrence and many others had taken in many pets of people that were evacuated and couldn't take them along due to being moved into motels,hotels,wherever......These people are slowly being allowed to go back home and are picking up their furbabies as they do so. Luke's shelter is also full of furbabies as is Trina's home that will be going back home as soon as their owners are allowed to go back home.

I hope your summer is going well and that your vacation was all that you had hoped for.How are the fires in NM? I have been so busy helping out  where ever I could with the flooded areas, I haven't even had time to watch the news.......Have to get back to work but will write in a bit.

Sending hugs through the breeze.

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

I really enjoyed the photos and dialog you posted of your trip. Someday my husband and I want to get down that way. Looks wonderful, peaceful and relaxing. I know the kids are delighted to have you home. It has been heating up our way which is early in the summer for that to happen so it could be a very warm one. I hope you are all safe and happy and that you have a wonderful summer.
