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

Just wanted to stop by and let you know we are thinking of you and hopeing the fires and smoke filled skies are under control. Breathing in all that smoke must certainly be hard on one. It is still raining here after a two day break with some sunshine. I wish that I could send some of these clouds over to NM as we certainly don't need anymore rain for awhile and I know you can use alot of it. The weather is just so mixed up.

Have you been able to do some walking in with Cupcake over the weekend or is the smoke still too heavy. I certainly hope it has eased as I know walking would be good for you and Cupcake. When Toby had his knee surgery ,the vet told me to walk him daily for a few minutes a day just to strenghten his knee.It was winter time then and a very icy, I just put sand and  traction grit around the area where I would walk him but was a nervous wreck as I was afraid he would slip. Needless to say, he got most of his walking done in the house "with the two sets of stairs blocked"as he followed Luke around under my supervision of coarse. Luke seemed to know that Toby was having problems with his leg and was very considerate as he walked slowly around the house with me encouraging him to do so.Toby always did followed Luke around so that worked out great.

Have a great week and know although I don't come here much, my Critters family are never far from my thoughts.

Sending Hugs and wishing that the fires are well under control. Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

P/S.  I just realized that I missed little Bob M's fourth Angelversary. I am so sorry. I know he is safe  and healthy again along with Sammy and Gabby and all the Bridge kids.

Dearest Charles and Family: I am so sorry about the fires in NM. I'll never forget that first one that burned at Los Alamos. I drove through looking at all the blackened dead trees. It was so very sad. I share your sentiments completely.

I'm happy that Cupcake is doing well. Hopefully you will be able to get out and about.

The shelters in central Oklahoma have really stepped up for the animals that were injured and lost in the second tornado. What a great job those people have done! There were many animals that didn't make it but I know they are at The Bridge and restored to health now.

Take care...Pat and  Beasties

 PS I just saw your post below. I did not realize BobM and Cupcake were a pair like Princess and Critter. Please give Cupcake an extra treat from me in sympathy for the loss of her friend.

 Dear Charles,

Back  from the Furry 5k just in time to bring angel day best wishes to you for Bob M. I hope you, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley had a wonderful day. I thought of you and you all today as we walked. Thank you so much for your support. I hope you and Cupcake are recovering quickly. Hugs to you all.

My little boy Bob M .. a/k/a Bob Macaroni .. well, today is your Four-Year Angelversary and I still think of you so much.  Cupcake still misses you so.  She sees jack rabbits in the back yard and she whines thinking it is you .. I just know she thinks it is you.

I hope that Sammy and Gabby and all the other furkids of Rainbow Bridge are keeping you safe.

Always remember that I will forever Love and Miss you little Bob M .. as you were adopted along with Cupcake as a pair.

Sending you many hugs and kisses my little boy.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with my beautiful Cinnamon on her first Angel day, June 4, 2013.

As I know you know, Charles, there is no easy way.  The love they share with us, and that we reinvest in them, guarantees that we will miss them forever when they are gone.

Bless you and your Angels, Charles, Sammy, Bob M and Gabby, and your entire pack.  I never tire of looking at the pictures of your kids . . . there something about those eyes that makes you appreciate the prolific amount of love they are capable of.  

You are a true friend to the entire Critters family, Charles, and Cinnamon and I are glad to count you amoung our friends.

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

Thank you so much for stopping by and remembering Luke on his Angelversary. It surely was a day of mixed emotions ,even after six years but I know he is in good hands and I  do believe that I will see him again one day.Until then, I will carry on and help all the precious furbabies that need help in Luke's honor as he needed me to help him years ago. Your visits are always appreciated and Thank you for your kind posts always..The rain here has finally stopped and we are now enjoying the sunshine. I hope many of them clouds that left here are headed your way and give you the much needed rain. I hope that the smoke has eased some as I can only imagine not being able to spend much time outdoors because of it.

I hope Cupcake is getting stronger and mending well as I am sure she is.

Sending hugs and positive thoughts for rain to come your way to help put them fires out.

Kinow that we all at Luke's shelter are thinking of you.


Lauvern and Luke.

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby, and Bob M.

It's when I sit quiet I can feel the love of my little girl surround me like a gentle hug. She knows she lives within my spirit, and each waking day I bring her with me, just as you bring along your beloved Sammy ... Know they are watching over us, and when we get flusters we need not fear but look to the heavens and let their love surround us. ((hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Luna look on at Sir Charles, lifts her paw, smiles and blows him a gentle  ... "Mwah" ...

Dear Charles, Thank you for remembering Luke on his Birthday. We had a beautiful day at Luke's shelter celebrating his Birthday as I held a open house with lots of coffee and Doris's baking for everyone. I even baked Luke's favourite  lemon cake and had his name on it. As we all sat around the bon fire last night,there were many bright shining stars in the beautiful blue sky. I am going to believe that was our kids letting us know they are all ok and having all the fun possible.

Handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M, Thank you for helping Luke celebrate his special day. I know you all had alot of fun and extra treats. Oh yes, I know you had a beautiful white Birthday cake as Luna told me all about it.

Thank you for your continued friendship.

Sending Hugs across the miles. Lauvern and Luke.

P/S   I hope Cupcake is getting stronger by the day as I am sure she is.

We forgot to tell you that there is an apple custard coffee cake in the oven right now. It is for my birthday and mothers day. It is a new recipe, so we'll see if it is good enough to share tomorrow. :) xoxoxo

Dearest Charles: Thank you so much for remembering Tippy's Angel Day. He and Sammy are having such a time today. Gabby and Bob M. found a soccer ball and graciously let them use it for a game of "kick around". :) I'm glad that Cupcake is recovering well. I know she hates being down but I know that you're such a good dad that she is being well taken care of. Take care, Charles.....Pat and Tippy

Dear Charles and sweet Cupcake. Just wanted you to know you and your girl, Cupcake to know we are thinking of the both of you and wishing you both well. We know Cupcake's surgery will go well today as well as she will get very special care from her Daddy while she is mending. Although it will be a long six weeks,she will be running and playing with her brothers to her heart's content. "smile".

Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M....... We know that you will be busy watching over your sister today.

Sending hugs and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Thank you Mr Charles,  Sammy, Gabby and Bob M for my birthday wishes ... Luna starts to count ... as far as the stars grace the sky, our love will too ... because we found in you all we ever needed, your love and we will keep it always till you can hold us in your arms again. Sending all our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

P.S.... I just saw your tattoo of Sammy.  The tattoo artist did a wonderful job capturing Sammy's likeness -- it looks great!

05-05-2013 4:56 AM -- By: Skye,  From:  

Hi Charles:
I just wanted to tell you that I was sorry to hear about Cupcake's leg injury and to let you know that I will be thinking of her (and you) on the 10th.  It is always so stressful (and expensive!) when our pets have to go thru surgery, and I know you will be worried about your girl.  Hopefully her surgery will go perfectly and she will have a painless and speedy recovery.  You mentioned that you just had 2 surgeries yourself -- Did you have 2 more surgeries since I sent you the get well card for your last surgery recently?  Gosh, I hope not.  I do hope that you are healing up well yourself and trying to take it easy.  Anyway, just know that I am thinking of both you and Cupcake and sending healing thoughts your way!  Take care.  Hugs.

Good Friday Morning Charles,handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.....Cupcake,Xander and Bentley too.

Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and granny's special hot cinnamon rolls to get our weekend off to a good start. We are suppose to be having a beautiful  weekend . Needless to say I will be spending alot of time outside with Tyson, Samantha and all the shelter kids. Although I will have many paws to clean,I know all will enjoy the outdoors.

How are you and sweet Cupcake doing. I hope you are well on the mend and I know Cupcake will  do well after her surgery.The sweet girl has been through so much.

Anyway have a grand weekend and I am sure the kids will be happy to have you home with them.

Keeping you and sweet Cupcake in our thoughts and sending hugs across the miles.

Dear Charles: First time I've been able to get to Sammy's page in ages. Now let's see if it goes to review and stays.

I am glad you have such professional nurses at your beck and call. I'm sure that Cupcake whips up some pretty mean breakfast waffles and Xander does the coffee. Bentley brings it to your bedside and watches to make sure you eat everything.  And if you happen to drop something, he is there to "clean" it up.

We had 84 today and it is going to get down to 37 tonight! 50s tomorrow with thunderstorms. I am ready for spring. My neighbor tilled the big garden and I almost have the raised beds done. I do a little bit at a time. I have 8 supervisors when I work outside. Pearlcat doesn't mess with gardening and such. She doesn't like getting her nails mussed up.

xoxoxoxo Pat and the Crew!

Good Morning Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

Thank you for stopping by with coffee and your kind posts in the past couple of days. I can finally get on here so thought I would reply while I can.

How is sweet Cupcake doing? She no doubt doesn't like to be crated as most don't but its for the best.I am sure Xander and Bentley keep her company while you are away. It no doubt seems like a long time until the tenth but after that Cupcake will heal real fast, I am sure.

Take care of yourself and don't overdo things as Cupcake will need your help to get around for awhile.. I am sure after six weeks she will be right back to normal and out run  her brothers. HaHa.

It is raining here today as it was yesterday as well. Not that we need anymore moisture but I guess we have to take what we get.

Have a good day. Keeping you in our thoughts.


Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.
