Here to honor the Angelversary of your Sammy.

Not  at critters or even on the computer very much lately. Bad winter---everyone sick(me included) and tons of the dreaded "white stuff"(snow!)

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

**I think of you and your boy often and I KNOW that you are happy because you KNOW that Sammy IS.

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

 Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,

Thank you so much for stopping by in remembrance of my dear girl. No matter how many years pass I will never forget her. I can hardly believe it has been so long since I was able to stroke her soft head and ears or bury my face in her sweet fur. I know you feel the same about your children. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful friend.

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

Easter is the perfect time to put
into words all the feelings that
too often go unsaid -- feelings
like the love and appreciation
felt for all of your kindness and support throughout the years.Thank you for your continued friendship and continuing to visit my kids memorial pages
with kind words not only to me but to all the volunteers at Luke's shelter. Your posts do not go unnoticed by anyone here.....Thank you for understanding why I have put my kids memorial on private for now.....
In time, I hope to be able to give my support to others as I have done in the past....
Wishing you a  Very Happy Easter with Love.
Lauvern, Byron, Tyson and ALL at Luke's Shelter.

Dearest Charles and babies: The sun just peeked through the clouds. I had to go to town (40 miles) to pick up more meds and I am so glad, glad, glad to be home and be greeted by everyone here. Dogs, cats, hens! They help me feel needed and we all want that.

I am going to dye and hide eggs for the dogs on Sunday. It ought to be fun because this will be the first Easter I've done it for Dom and Dinah. Lita loves boiled eggs more than anything else I can fix. She will be in heaven. Let me know who finds the most at your house!

xoxoxo Pat and family

03-26-2013 11:53 PM -- By: Mona,  From: Illinois  

Charles, I just spent some time getting to know your wonderful Sammy, and reading some of your tributes to him, Gabby and little Bob M ... and want to thank you for your kind words in my Ricki Roo's guest book. For the longest time I couldn't even bring myself to come back to his memorial page, but now a little over a month since he had to leave us for a while, I find myself here among friends I've never met ... but yet we all understand the pain of this particular kind of separation, and that it's not something one ever "gets over". I'm not even sure I'd want to, you know? The loss of a loved one leaves a wound on the heart, but that wound means we've loved and been loved ... you by your Sammy, me by my Ricki ... I wouldn't have given that up for anything. Not even the pain. I would have loved to know your Sammy, and given him a big hug. Rest easy, Charles, knowing that his valiant soul is always at your side. And thank you again for helping me through my sharpest grief at having to say goodbye to my boy. 


03-26-2013 11:06 PM -- By: TJ,  From: Calif  

 Charles, thank you so much for your kind words on Matty's memorial.  Your writings on Sammy are so touching and my thoughts and prayers are with you.  God bless you and all your doggy children. 




03-25-2013 9:20 AM -- By: Randy Hamel,  From: Upham,ND

Charles! I looked at your tattoo again. I love it.  What an artist. It looks like a color photograph. xoxox Pat

03-20-2013 10:07 PM -- By: pat and crew,  From: oklahoma  

Dearest Charles and family: I am so sorry you've been ill.I hope you feel better tomorrow.  I also had the ailment you describe. I threw up a lot and would rather crawl over broken beer bottles.  I went to visit my neighbors yesterday and J opened the door a crack and said "I have it, don't come in". She was gray as could be. So I visited Pluto, your breed and Yeller. Yeller has bone cancer and I took him more pain meds. Pluto did his little dance for me. :)

My SIL gave me DishNetwork! I haven't seen television since June of 2011. I have one in the LR and one in the kitchen near the computer. I will get to watch the basketball championship games! I have missed my basketball.

It was pretty today but windy. I have most of the yard cleaned up and I turned a flower bed. Today the hens took dust baths in it. So.......another location, I guess.

Kiss Cupcake, Xander and Bentley for me. xoxoxo Pat
