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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

04-08-2013 1:57 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  


Thinking of you Sammy …
Not just on your angel day, but always.
Luna flutters about waving her paws, sorry, mom did not have computer access ... then she sighs and smiles ... but I know you want to know what we did, so sit back, as she takes a sip of her coffee and explains.
There was a cool breeze blowing in from the north, the skies were clear and the clouds looked like cotton balls … as the sun gently shined over rainbow bridge. The grass was green and the patch where the children played began to grow! They frolicked and rolled in those tall blades of grass, as they stretched their necks up the softness was that of a feather ... the trees had many leaves in bloom and the birds were singing, but there was ONE TREE Sammy hadn’t noticed before … as he walked towards it … he sniffed, Butler nudged him by the leg and nodded, “yup, it’s a DOGWOOD”. Luna shook her head and pointed yonder, and as they looked surrounded by tall Dogwoods in full bloom was a tent,  a big beautiful white tent with sheer draped curtains, as they came closer they noticed it was filled with furniture the most plush furniture ever … soft and subtle cushions, recliners and silk hammocks … The kids all ran, and Luke started gaining speed … trying to catch Toby, Dale was right behind them, then Butler, Sammy, and Luna … but as they reached the tent, the lights began to dim, Yup, Luna dimmed the sky, and white lights from the horizon shined upon them, as they stood quiet all the STARS began to appear … Luna walked over to Sammy and said, do you see those bright white lights, that’s the pure softness of our parents love, and no matter how long, far or wide their love will always find us! Sammy smiled; he knew his dad was thinking of him at that moment.
No matter the fields they roam, they will always be home cradled in the softness of our thoughts and within our hearts … and one day we will meet again. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Dearest Handsome Sammy: I know that you are looking down on your Dad and remembering all the good times you shared. The day you met one another is etched on your memory, I'm sure. Sammy, you are one of the luckiest dogs in the entire world to have found the best Dad you could ever ask for. You helped make your Dad who he is today..he is such a good person and continues to rescue PB's, always following the experience he started with you. You are one lucky, lucky guy. Happy Angel Day and know that we all love you and the rest of our friends and babies who are with you. We'll all be together one day. xoxoxo Pat

Dear Charles:

I wanted to stop by to honor and remember your precious Sammy on his 5th Angel Day.  Somehow I just remembered today was his special day.  I know how much you miss your sweet boy, but I also know how very blessed Sammy was to have found you on that fateful day so many years ago and to have had you as his loving Dad.  I send you both a big hug and my warmest wishes.

 My Dear friend Charles,

Having Princess's Angles Day less than a week ago I can truly say I empathize with your feeling for this day. These difficult days would be almost impossible to deal with without you and my others critters friends. 


I am sure Sammy and Princess have crossed paths and are exchanging stories of their time with us here on earth. Perhaps in doing so they will bark or jump with joy and stir up a bit of angel dust that will fall your way. Should you feel that whisper of a touch know it is your son Sammy sending love your way as you think of him as he does you. Hugs to you by dear friend.
