Hi Charles, I know when it's my time I'll be running to that bridge with happy tears in my eyes, a smile of yearning, wanting and endless waiting that comes to an end  to the anticipated sounds of whimpering in excitement knowing my little girls will be there leading the pack ... if I happen to come upon you as I'm "Speeding through" I'll grab your coat and help you along  because I won't be walking.

When we think of those who have gone before us, the pain we feel knowing how much we miss them, then a subtle grace comes upon me and I realise all the while they here ~ still with me, I can feel them within. Then,  gentle smile appears on my face and my heart feels an inner warmth and glow only their love can bring. 

Forever and always  Nadine & her little girl Luna

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Cinnamon just wanted me to stop say what a joy it is ti have made wonderful forever angel friends like Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.  Cinnie also said that she has managed to introduce my beloved Brutus to Sammy, Gabby & Bob M already, while I'm still trying to get some photos of Brutus from my ex.     

Bless you, Charles, for continuing to welcome all of the new angels to Critters, and for being so genrous and kind to your extended Critter's family, as well. 

I was sorry to read somewhere that you'd been ill recently, and hope you're feeling better.

Bless you, Charles, your beautiful angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your sweet Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  I'm sure they tended to you while you were ill,  as I know their caring and love knows no bounds.

To a special man and good friend,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Dear Charles and furfamily,

I was thinking of you all when I sat down to begin my work day so I thought I would start the day by sending a quick note. I am hoping to find that Cupcake is on the mend and you are all preparing for fun fall activities. I also hope your aunt is fairing well. I know you are very busy trying to keep up with all of your duties at home ad at work but remember to take care of yourself as well. Hugs my friend.

Dear Charles. Thank you for remembering Toby on his 1st. Angelversary and thank you for all of your support ,especially in the past year which was a very hard year for me. Losing two of my kids just two weeks apart was almost more than I could take. I know you understand. Toby's Angelversary was a very emotional day for me but somehow I made it through. I now face JoJo's 1st on the 11th and hopefully I can begin to heal after that day.

Thank you for your continued visits and kind posts to my kids memorial pages. To think that you have some challenges in life with your sweet Cupcake and your aunt and yet take the time to think of me and my furkids means alot to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Lauvern and Toby

Luna winks at Charles, smiles and says, thank you ....


Ahh yes, Summer will come to a close and all the heat with it, then she sits under the shade of a big oak tree and stretches legs and rubs her paws in the grass ... rolls over on her tummy and says, “you know Charles, there is something SPECIAL about Winter” ... “yes I know it's cold but when you walk quietly by yourself looking upon the white snow as it glistens in  the moonlight, it seems as if it is heaven on earth and there is no prettier sight!  … and DON’T forget about the hot cocoa with whipped cream”, she licks her lips and smiles, then BLOWS a huge kiss, at that moment Sammy looks on with pride and a huge grin, along with Gabby and Bob M. by his side ~ Their love and ours will always surround you.

Big ((HUGS)) Luna & her mom Nadine, (Lily and Opal too “ Arf Arf”).

 Dear Charles, Sammy, BobM, Gabby, Xander, Cupcake and Bentley,

Thinking of you on this balmy day in the NW and hoping Cupcake is progressing with her recovery. We are never happy with our babies are not their best and I know youwill be stressed until she is back to herself completely.

I heard that a very dear friend lost her companion of 14-1/2 years. She was one of the first to be of comfort to me after Princess crossed the bridge. I always feel so helpless in these situations since there is really nothing you can say or do that takes away the pain of losing a family member.  I do not know what I would have done had I not found critters and the wonderful friends I have made here. So few truly understand the love we have for our children.

Take care of yourself as you care for CUpcake and your aunt. Hugs my friend.

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

Just popped in to check up on Bentley, Cupcake and Xander, and of course to pay my respects to your beloved angels.

Your kids are all so beautiful, Charles.  My Brutus was a great 'talker', and never failed to let me know how he was feeling.  May you and your babies have many more years of long, involved and from the heart talks.

Again I must end by saying you are wonderful man and kind soul, Charles, and a loving forever Dad to all of your beloved angels and dear, sweet kids.

Thank you for the visit to my baby girl's site.  It has been just one week since she went to the Rainbow Bridge.  You have created a beautiful tribute to your precious son.  May he continue to watch over you .

Charles thank you for visiting with my babies. I appreciate the many times you have written and as with you it is all the memories that keep our babies alive in our hearts and knowing that some day we will see them again. I see you have a new boy and I hope Bentley is having a great time with his new family.

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

Thank you so much for your continued visits to my kids memorial and your kindness as always and Thank you for the message from Skye. I miss her here on Critters, as I do all the good friends I had made on here after losing Luke. But as you know, people change, life styles change,or they leave and go on their seperate ways and things are just not the same. I know I haven't been doing my part in visiting ,etc. for a few reasons either but I am trying. I truely appreciate those that stay in contact ,as you do, for which I Thank you so much.

The weather here has been nice and not so hot which I truely appreciate. We have all been spending alot of time outdoors. I am hopeing for a nice weekend as their is a Rodeo  and corn and apple festival going on about 50 miles from here which I would love to go to. I certainly missed going to the Calgary stampede this year as I have gone almost every year for many years now but hopefully next year.

We will keep Cupcake in our thoughts and prayers and hope all reports are good from the vet tomorrow.

Sending hugs across the miles.

Lauvern ans all at Luke's shelter.

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

The summer is flying by. No need to every apologize for the time between posts or emails. I know that you have your hands full just like I do but we still keep each other close in thought and heart.  

I do love getting guest book entries and am so glad at least a few of us continue to do so. Here is where my Princess introduced me to my new lifelong friends and here is where my heart remains.  If I miss posts on FB I do apologize so please do not think I do not care, especially about important events but I just cannot keep up!

I know your aunt greatly appreciates your ministrations and I completely understand how time consuming it can be. I travel often between my house and my dad's nursing home and before that to his house to make sure all is/was well. 

Take care Charles and enjoy the days of summer before they disappear...

Hi Charles and fur kids! It was so nice to see your post and hope you are all doing very well!!  I don't get around as much on the site, but do keep all my critters friends in my thoughts. We have been doing good here, just dealing with smokey skies every so often, in our area of Southern Oregon, from the forest fires north of us. Hopefully they will be contained soon, as it can get very thick and makes it hard to be outside. Luckily we've had a few clear days, which has been wonderful!! Anyway, I hope Bentley is settling in well and that Cupcake and Xander love him. He is such a beautiful boy! Take care and hugs to you and all the fur kids!!

Morning Charles, and kids ... I see the pack is growing

Luna, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M look on with a smile, then they each open a white sack they are holding, Luna puts her paw in and sprinkles out from fairy dust, then Sammy opens his ~ takes a huge breath and opens his and a rainbow appears, then Gabby lifts up her sack and shakes out sunshine, and when Bob M opens his you can feel their love surround you.

Wishing you a magical day filled with sunshine, happiness and rainbows. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too

Hi Charles:
Just wanted to take a rare moment to come onto Critters and thank you for the times that you have stopped by and offered your kind and supportive words since my illness began.  I have really appreciated it.  I would have thanked you sooner but I have been in and out of the hospital since shortly after my birthday in May, battling various complications.  But I did want you to know that your kindness and your visits to Molly's memorial have been very much appreciated.  I do hope that you and your furkids are doing well and that you  all have been enjoying a wonderful summer together.  I hope by now Cupcake is all healed up and back to her old self again.  Sending big hugs to you and to all your precious furbabies, both here and at the Rainbow Bridge.  Take Care.
P.S...Please let Lauvern know that she and her furkids have been in my thoughts as well.  Thanks.

Thank you for your kind words on the loss of my cat Milo. I can't believe I only had 9 short years with him. I wish I had more time. I bet he and Sammy are having so much fun over the Rainbow Bridge together. :-)

08-09-2013 10:05 AM -- By: Paulette,  From: Ohio  

 Thank you so much for reading Benny's tribute and signing my guest book.  It truly helps.  I also cried some tears as I read Sammy's tribute.  Thank you for saving him from certain death on that road!   Prayers and Angels wings, Paulette

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

Thank you for visiting my furkids and your kindness as always. I am happy to hear that sweet Cupcake is able to play with her brothers as I am sure she felt bad that she couldn't. I do agree that she has to build up her muscle and get the strenght back in her leg. I hope that she doesn't play too rough and hurt it but I don't think she will. I think she will favor that leg until it gets back to normal and it will in time.

I do remember when my first bulldog "Dixie" had her ligament surgery  when she was only a year old and of coarse I was suppose to keep her confined for six weeks which turned out to be  only four weeks as when she went for her four week checkup, the vet said she was doing so well that I could start letting her play with Luke. under supervision. I was quite concerned as I knew them two played rough ,but  the vet said she will do only what she can, and if it hurts she will take it easy..I believe Luke knew she couldn't play rough as he didn't play rough as normal. He would always check on her and when he did run around the yard with her chasing him, I did see that he didn't run as fast as normal. I believe these furkids know more than we give them credit for.

Anyway I am sure Cupcake is well on her way to recovery and all will be just fine.

The weather here is nice and not too hot so the furkids have been spending their days outdoors. They all come in at meal time and want to go right back out again,which they do until bedtime. That of coarse is after they have a dish of icecream and a cookie and believe me ,it doesn't take any of them long to know they get a treat before bed and they don't let me forget either. HaHa. Doris has them all good and spoiled. HaHa.

Have a grand weekend and know we are all thinking of sweet Cupcake and knowing all will be just fine.

Sending hugs across the miles.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

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

Just stopping by to wish you a grand weekend and Thank you for your kind post and compliment on Luke's picture. ....Our weather is suppose to be nice this weekend, so I know the furkids will all enjoy the days outdoors. We have had so many rainy days that they mostly had to spend their days indoors and have been getting bored. Although a few of them "including Tyson and Samantha"don't mind the rain, I bring them all in when it is lightning out there. I don't have to convince them when it thunders as they come in at a great speed on their own. HaHa. I think Tyson and Samantha would come in right through the door if I didn't have it open. HaHa.

Well  I have to go and feed everyone their breakfast and then let them outside to enjoy the day and get our day going.

Have a grand weekend !Sending hugs across the miles.

What a handsome new brother you have, Sammy -

Charles, Bentley is so handsome and such a lucky dog to have found you!  Just wanted to stop by and say hello, peek in on that new boy of yours!

Thank you for visiting, and leaving such kind words at Teddie's memorial. I hope that all of our children are watching over us together in peace as we all wait to be joyfully reunited once more. God Bless.

Good Morning Charles,

As Luna looks on from her fluffy white cloud, she signals to Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.,  they begin to lower the rainbow, ha-ha-ha ... YES, but it's true, the reflective love from within our heart radiates in everything we do, it shows on the outside too! Luna smiles and says’, “when you think of us we know, and we GLOW!”  … Forever and always they will be a part of us.  
Sending our love and many tiny hugs, Luna & her mom Nadine(Lily and Opal too)

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

I will forever be greatful and always amazed that my girl and your boy connected us from beyond. Sadly, it seems the people who are geographically closer to me do not have the same connection to their furbabies that you, Lauvern and only a few others and I have. I feel sorry for those people who have not experienced the most pure form of love there is as expressed by our four footed companions.

Thank you, thank you for keeping me up to date on how well your family is doing. Hugs my friend.
