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

Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and Doris's Friday special"hot cinnamon rolls" and to tell sweet Cupcake what a good girl she is. We all knew she would be a very good girl "as always"."smile". I am sure your Aunt loved the idea of you bringing her in to visit as did the other residents.There is just something about these furbabies that brings the sparkle back into the eyes of the elderly.I am sure they are all looking forward to seeing Cupcake again.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sending hugs across the breezes from up north.

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

Thank you for your recent visits and coffee. We always need coffee in the  mornings here as our days start at about 5:00 am.

What a great idea for you to take sweet Cupcake to visit your aunt.I am sure your aunt would love that. There is something abut animals that seems to melt many people hearts. Many of the nursing homes here have little dogs or kitties living at the nursing home . I read an article not too long ago about how these pets have made a difference to all the residents of the nursing homes.They have school children volunteering there who take the dogs out for a walk and look after the kitties needs .etc.When its my time to go into one of these places, I hope they have many pets there. Nothing would make me happier, I am sure. I hope thats a long way off yet though. haha.

You are most welcome to visit us one day.We would love that and there is lots of room here.So when you decide to make the adventure up north, let me know so that we can make some plans and I can cut my workload back a bit.I know you would love to see the "pittie farm" which is what we call Lawrence's home. There are now 14 spoiled pitties living there. That is between Lawrence and his son's Bruce's adjacent properties. I am sure you would like to meet Samantha as you know Sammy's legend lives on in her."smile".

Have a good day. I have a puppy obedience class I must get to.

Sending hugs through the spring like breezes from here to there.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Sammy, Gabby & Bob M & Dad Charles,

Thank you all so very much for sharing my dear little Cinnamon's 15th birthday with you.  I know, Sammy, that you and my beloved Brutus probably had a good time at the January 9th Rainbow Bridge birthday party Cinnie shared with so many other beatufiul angels.  Cinnie talks about your babies all of the time, Charles, and I think she's become very good friends with Gabby!

Charles, I cannot thank you enough for the kidness and caring you have shared with me and Cinnie, and so very many others here at Critters. Your friendship truly is a blessing. Glad to here your feeling better, bujt I'm saddened by the news in Nadine's note from the 10th about your Aunt. My thought s and prayers are with you all, as I know what a kind, genune and compassionate man you are.

Thank you, my friend, for your caring and kidness.  I look forward to hearing from you and your kinds regardless of the occasion.

Bless you, Charles, and angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, today and throughout the new year.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M and your fur-kids at home. Sorry to hear about your aunt, but it's best that she be in a place that can help her get strionger, treatment and therapy ... she knows you love her. When she gets stronger and able to do for herself she will  get a better sense of self and understanding. Sending our ((hugs)) her way, let her know she is in our thoughts as well. Often I find myself thinking and picturing my little Luna, playing, smiling and dancing ... hanging with her buddies knowing she is happy although I can't help but miss her, my love continues to grow making me stronger knowing one day ...    Luna & her mom Nadine

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

Thank you for your recent visits and kind words as always.... Things here are getting back to normal and today it is looking like spring out there. The temps have made a drastic change and are above normal for this time of year.One never knows what to expect next. Anyway these warmer temps are much easier to deal with. I am sure the furkids will all want to be outside today after being stuck indoors for the past 2 plus weeks.

I hope things are all well out your way and that the kids are doing well.Thinking of your aunt and hopeing all is as good as can be expected.

Sending along a few of Doris's fresh cinnamon rolls and fresh hot coffee to get your day going and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Sending hugs through the "spring like" breezes from Canada.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

P/S... Sammy, I know you and Luke have been busy during the "way below normal"temps here as all the shelters are full with furbabies that have been found out in the severe cold and brought to shelters here until their parents can be found or new forever homes are found. Keep up the great work and I thank you.

 Dear Charles and furfriends to the south,

 Dear Lauvern and furfriends to the North,

I hope you are all safe and warm and feeling much better. I have not heard from you in awhile so I hope all is well. Our weather has been mild in comparison to the rest of the country. We need rain and snow but not much in sight. I will be away from critters more than usual as my dad has just entered ito Hospice. He will be 94 in a few weeks and he is struggling. 

Wishing all of you the very best the New Year has to offer.

Hugs from the NorthWest.

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Always wonderful to hear from my good friend Charles, but sorry about your back.  Knock on wood, I've only had a couple of minor issues over the years.  

You couldn't ask for better group of nurses though, Charles, than Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  I swear if I close my eyes I can feel my beloved old man Brutus flop down next to me.  So solid and muscular our PB and Am Staff kids are, Charles, but they love to cuddle.  There was no such thing as 'too close'! 

I wish you well, Charles, and hope you're feeling better every day.  Here's to a happy and healthy 2014 to the whole Padilla family. 

Cinnamon sends her love, Charles, along with a bunch of her special kisses to you and yours. 

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Charles & Family,

Stopping by to wish my great and good friend Charles, and his family, angels included, well during the remainder of this crazy holiday season.

I has been a privilege for me to get to know you here at Critters this year, Charles, and to witness first hand all of the kindness, respect, and wisdom you are always willing to share with others.

I know, Charles, that my beloved Cinnamon, and all of my kids from the past, including my Brutus who I've bragged about to you so often, will be spending Christmas with Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and the other amazing angels I am now aware of, but who I know loved and comforted by Cinnie right for the start.  

Bless you, Charles, and may the remainder of your holidays be filled with good fortune, good health, and happiness, and in the new year, too.

And by all means with Cupcake, Xander and Bentley a joyous holiday from me and Cinnamon. 

Cinnamon & Bruce

 Thinking of you and your furkids, Charles, and reflecting on what priceless gifts they were and are. Our first Christmas without Ricki Roo is having it moments ... but we're doing all right, Roo wouldn't want us to be sad and miss the quiet moments of joy. Wishing you many such moments, dear friend. Hugs to you and all the "kids", and may many blessings be yours in the new year. From Ricki Roo's mom.

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.

Luna smiles as she puts the finishing touches on the tree, and as she steps back it begins to glow ... not just from the lights that were hung with care but from the warmth of your  and they each smile. As they tilt their head back and look at the sky they marvel at the brilliant stars above, then one begins to twinkle brighter than the rest and in the dark sky it appears as if it's moving ... A COMMET, quick make a Wish!!!  ((hugs)) and all our ... knowing they watch over us still.  Luna & her mom Nadine

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

I just wanted to write to you aas I am having my lunch and let you know, we are keeping your precious girl Cupcake in our prayers and sending positive healing thoughts to her.Doris just asked me about her and I had to write and let you know,we are thinking of you and her. How is she doing? I hope she is doing much better.

I will write later as I have a class in half an hour so must finish my lunch. It has been very cold here for the last few days so as you can imagine, the kennels and cages are filled as well as 5 portable kennels set up in my office.

Have a good day. Will write later.

Charles, and Sammy, Gabby & Bob N,

Stopping by this time from home before we head off for work.  I apologize, guys, but I having a problem with my messages to your all going into the Critters 'Review'!

Know, Charles, that Cupcake is in my prayers for a speedy recovery, and that all of your beautiful angels, and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, are thought of every day.

I send a longer message when the Review logjam clears up.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

12-11-2013 8:55 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & PA  

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Hey gang, I want you to know I've tried to send a couple of messages and they keep going to review.

I'll try again from home.  Just want you all to know that Cupcake is in our prayers, and it always great to hear from your wonderful family, at the Bridge and here on earth.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

12-11-2013 8:49 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & PA  

Charles, and Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

It is always a great treat to hear from you and your gang, Charles, both your forever loving angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your beautiful Cupcake, and dashing Xander and Bentley. 

I don't envy the weather you've been having lately, and am so sorry to hear about your sweet Cupcake.  I know my Brutus LOVED the snow, and as I've told you before, even though it's now more than 24 yrs, 7 mos (not that I'm counting) since my amazing Brutus passed, there is nothing that he did, or said, no look that he ever gave me, that I don't remember, and will for the rest of my life.  

You're so right, Charles, we will do anything for them, but what joy and love they give us in return.  

We're located just south of Philadelphia, PA, and it just snowed on Tuesday for the second time in three days.  We had two, record breaking winters here, back to back, spanig 2009 - 2011, and even the snow reminds me of how much I love, and miss, my little Cinnie.  Many was the night I shoveled the sidewalk three or four times so my little girl . . . she had back issues and we needed to prevent slipping and sliding . . . could go for a stroll, and do her business.  I miss that little girl so very much. 

I know Cinnamon is great friends with so many wonderful angels, Charles, your Sammy, Gabby and Bob M among them, and it means something every time, but especailly at this time of year, when you and your family stop by.  Thank you so very much.

You are a caring, generous, loving and decent soul, Charles, which is why you are so loved by your babies: you share those same qualities with them. 

Cinnamon and I will definately stop by prior to the holiday to wish you all well.  Again, I'll throw in a special prayer or three for your Cupcake, but I know she's get better with all of the TLC she gets from her Dad.

Peace & Love (and good health!),

Cinnamon & Bruce

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M

Luna smiles ...  just had to share. Yesterday while mom was walking Lily and Opal she came upon 3 coins on the sidewalk, mom picked up each coin and looked at them;   5 pecos,  a penny from Canada, one US penny  ... as she picked them up she smiled knowing Luna was making her rounds to Canada, Mexico and also her mom. each moment of every day when the sadness falls upon me I think of a little girl that is waiting, and although the tears fall because I miss her, a happiness at times can be felt as well ... knowing their love surronds us still ... always watching, waiting and letting us know they are here. Sedning ((hugs)) your way and a BIG kiss to cupcake, hoping her leg bets better real soon, also a ball toss to Bentley and Xander ... may they tire eachother out so dad can rest and relax watching the stars.  Luan & her mom Nadine
