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.

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!

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.

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.

hello charles!!!  i am sending you and your fur baby so much love and light!  i have faith that all will be well.  please keep me updated.  this grieving thing is crazy - such a roller coaster.  been doing a lot of crying lately...missing that beautiful soul.  i know BJ is with me but i miss being able to pet him and snuggle with him.  anyway - your friendship means a lot, charles and has helped me a great deal in getting through this.  talk to you soon.

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.

Hi Charles,

I wanted to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU for your kind words and taking the time to write on my Sweet Sophia's memorial page.  Thank you for being such a great parent to Sammy.  The world still needs many more of us to take care of and love the animals. 

04-29-2013 7:35 PM -- By: Bruce,  From: PA  


My thoughts and prayers are with you and Cupcake.  I'm just glad Cupcake's condition is something that can be addressed with surgery. With the love and care she'll receive from you, Charles, Cupcake will make a full recovery. 

Cinnamon and I are in your corner, Cupcake!  Bless you.

Cinnamon & Bruce

Don't know about you but I had problems with access to the Critters site most of last week.  Seems to be fine now, but I noticed in some postings that you had been in the hospital for short stay.  Good to see you back and posting, and as always my thoughts and prayers are with you, Sammy, Bob M, Gabby and your entire amazing family.  Bless you.

Dear Charles and all your Precious Angels there, and those who walk beside you always, I am so sorry to have missed sending greetings on Sammy's Angelversary. We were in Denver that day for a memorial celebration for the kind lady who founded the rescue from where we got our five little souls. She had passed away suddenly from cancer that had recurred. She was our age and she was such an angel, founding a rescue that has found homes for 1400 little dogs since 2007. My husband has been pretty ill since that trip, so haven't had much of a chance to get on the website. From the comments, it seems that you have been ill, as well, and we hope you have recovered and are feeling much better now. The weather is beautiful, and we know that Sammy's spirit infuses joy and beauty into your life and helps you heal. Bless you, bless him, and bless all of your Angels. Even though you don't hear from me as often as I'd like, you are always in our thoughts and prayers. From your neighbors to the south, Love and hugs, Carol

 Dearest Charles and family,

Not sure what is up with the website but it is very slow to load and hard to get in. I hope you have mostly recovered and are enjoying spring weather like we are. It is absolutely perfect with clear skies and a gentle breeze. Think of you all often and hope all is well.

04-23-2013 4:36 PM -- By: Mona,  From: Illinois  

Dear friend Charles, I've had a bit of trouble accessing the site lately, but was able to get in today to add a page about Ricki-Roo's "daddy" and pal ... my husband is having a tough time and I wanted to honor their special relationship. As I've often done in the past, I visited Sammy's pages before leaving, and saw that you'd recently had surgery. Glad to see that you're on the mend. Knowing that your precious Rainbow Bridge furkids were keeping watch right along with Xander, Cupcake and Bentley undoubtedly helped you through this.  Best of wishes for your continued recovery from Ricki-Roo's mommy.

04-22-2013 9:36 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

Thank you for your visit and Birthday Greetings for Kc. No apologies needed as I certainly understand,especially because the kids are all together on Luke's memorial page and don't show up on the Forums. I wouldn't have it any other way though, as my kids were always close and never seperated while with me, I wouldn't seperate their memorial tributes either. We know they are all safe and will live on in our hearts forever.. This is only their memorial site,not where we want them but we can't change that.

 I know I have missed many marker days myself due to not being here as I once was for which I am truely sorry but it can't be helped at this time.

Thank you for your kind posts as always and I am happy that you are mending well. I know your three nurses took good care of you and continue to do so as you fully recover.


Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.


04-21-2013 7:34 PM -- By: Ebony and her momma,  From: My heart  

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.
