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

Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and granny's  freshly baked cinnamon rolls to help get another busy day going.  I hope all is well out your way and that you are taking time for yourself and the kids after a busy day. Its a good thing that my kids are with me at the shelter all day or I don't think after a 12--13 hour day, i would have the energy to spend quality time with  them . As it is they have all my time and play and run with the shelter kids all day long. When we get home they are cetainly ready for bed. HaHa. The weather has been beautiful for them all to have fun outside which is a good thing as they all love to play and run outside as I am sure Cupcake and Xander do.

Thank you for the coffee and treats in the past couple of days. It was much appreciated as some mornings, I get up too late to make coffee at home and its a long drive to the shelter before I can have coffee that Doris always has ready when I get there. haha.

Have a good day and don't work too hard. Sending hugs as Always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

 Thank you.  I will get better at visiting and show my support to other as it was done for me.  It does help with the healing when others understand your heavy heart.  Bless you.

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

Thank you for coffee for the last couple of days. I have been quite busy as usual  and especially so now ,with Kim still away as she is still under the weather.

The weather here seems more like spring then winter as we have many paws to clean.The furkids are certainly enjoying the outdoors in the slush. Its a good thing that they don't mind getting their paws washed. HaHa.

Have a good day.


Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

 Dear Charles, Sammy, Bob M, Gabby, Xan der and Cupcake,

My apologies for lack of visits. I have been in a bit of a slump. I truly appreciate your kind guest book entires and will do better about keeping up. You are never far from my thoughts and I hope you and the kids are enjoying what winter brings, snuggles around a fire, walks in the snow and evenings with a good book and furbabies close by.  Hugs to you all.

Thank you for thinking of my Pac Pac (and me) on his 2 year anniversary.  I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.  Its not easy for me to visit this site often I have a weakness for all the angle buddies and my heart aches.  I and my family thank God for thoughtful people like you.

Well, Charles, did you think I had died and gone to visit my two furbabies?  I just don't get on here much any more.  If I said it once, I'll say it again, I really have to change that.  Thanks for stopping clear back on the 19th.  I appeciate it. 

I started making pictures and putting them on Misty's Memorial.  Not getting any posts in the guestbook, so I am assuming nobody wanted the pctures.  Hmmmm.  Did better when I was posting on FB.

Good Sunday morning , Charles,handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

I have to tell you I had a laugh when I read your post about Cupcake and Xander having the tugowar with your comforter.HaHa. I know you probably didn't find it funny when you firsr saw that but I bet you did after the initial shock of it all. When Luke was with me, he and Toby did the same when I was away, but it was with the cushion of my new sofa in the family room first and as if that wasn't enough,they did the same with the pillows off the bed. I had styrofoam everywhere. When I got home, I didn't know what happen but didn't take too long to figure it out as the two of them had that "guilty" look on them. HaHa.I did scold them BUT when they both came over to me to give me kisses as they always did and Toby still does after he gets scolded,it's impossible to be angry with them.  I did tell them that they wouldn't get any new toys for awhile because I had to buy a new sofa and pillows but of coarse that didn't last long. HaHa.

What we wouldn't do for our furkids!!

Have a good Sunday.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Friday Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. Just stopping by with fresh hot coffee and a variety of granny's home baked cookies. We are having spring like weather again. Alot of slush around which will bring many muddy paws to clean today. Have a grand weekend and enjoy Cupcake and Xander as I know you do.

Sending hugs all around.

Morning Charles, Sammy, Gabby, and Bob M ... Luna clears her throat and sighs, then lifts her paws up high and stretches ... there is never a moment when you are not on our minds, in our hearts, or with us!  Luna starts to spin, and spin, and SPIN ... and when she stops Sammy is beside her and gently holds her for a little dip ... they look on and smile as they giggle ...  we carry you in our hearts each day knowing  we will find each other again one day. ~~.  Even in absence and the stillness of silence we carry thoughts of you with us ... never far from our mind,  alive in our heart ... Hope is eternal, and love is forever!   Sending many hugs your way Luna and all the fur kids at the bridge

Good Evening Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Thank you for stopping by this morning as I always love to hear from you.

You asked about the Boxer and Pitbull  babies. They are all doing real good. Of coarse the Pitbulls couldn't find a better home then they did and the Boxers are still with me as they are too young to be adopted out. I had them outside today for a few minutes as it was a warm day. They weren't too sure what to do with that white stuff"snow" haha.

Doris and I have been quite busy as Kim is still away. I am hopeing she takes the rest of he week off as I asked her to do as she needs to rest. We had two high school kids come to volunteer today which helped a great deal and they said they will be back tomorrow after school so thats a good thing.

Anyway ,hopeing all is well out your way. Have a Good Night and don't work too hard tomorrow.

Sending Hugs as Always.

Lauvern and All at Luke's shelter.

Thanks for the kind word on Sable's angelversay. Sammy and Sable's last year sound oh too similar with trying to do their buisness in the snow and bad weather being held up for support. I was blessed with Sable for a good part of her life. She lived a good 13 years.

01-25-2012 11:47 AM -- By: Denise,  From: Sunderland, England.  

 I'm sorry for your loss of your precious baby Sammy. You can tell by his beautiful memorial how much he meant to you. I read about the signs you have had from your boy. I have had similar signs from my precious baby Mitsy. Although everyone thought I was losing my mind. A week after losing her i was sitting outside staring into the sky. Immediately I noticed a crow messing around on my wall. It was walking along to the other side and then back again. It was staring at me. The crow jumped from roof to roof and still kept looking towards me. I thought of my little Mitsy as it was as mischievous as she was. Later that day I was really upset as I watered my plants in the garden. I suddenly felt a cold nose on my back and that was what Mitsy used to do. She would creep up behind me and press her nose on my back, to let me know she's there. I also keep finding her hairs in bunches everywhere. Our other baby Lady sits crying. When I give her a cuddle she is covered in our Mitsys hairs. Real love never dies. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

R.I.P baby Sammy, sleep tight. Love Denise-Mitsy's Mammy

 Dear Charles and Sammy:  Thank you for visiting my page for Mr. Darcy and being so kind.  I am sorry for your loss - Sammy and you had such a wonderful and devoted relationship.  No pet deserves the struggles ours had, albeit briefly.  I hope you find peace and remember Sammy will always love you.  Susan

01-24-2012 5:10 PM -- By: Carol Palmer,  From: Socorro, New Mexico  

Charles, bless you for stopping by to send your southern neighbor a greeting on Missy's page. Hope all is well up there. It rained here this morning, and is still overcast. You said that you were busy now that the legislature is in session. What kind of work do you do? All the political stuff is very interesting, but my husband and I were teachers here for many years, and kind of out of the loop on what happens in Santa Fe. I went on Sammy's front memorial page yesterday, and the song brought me to tears. it is so beautiful, such a tribute to your son. Who sings it? It is like it was sent from God. It really just takes your breath away, it is so beautiful, like a chorus of angels singing it. Bless you!! It has been wonderful to connect with such a vital member of the Critters community as you are, and the love and support you bring to others is so kind and unselfish of you. I know Sammy and Gabby and little Bob M. are so proud of you. Keep doing what you're doing. You have made such an inspirational difference in so many people's lives. Love to you and Xander and Cupcake from Carol and Steve, Missy, and Smokey, Sweetie, Sabrina, Itsy Bitsy, and Peggy Sue (all adopted geriatric and special needs sweethearts) in Socorro.

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

Just a quick stop to share coffee from Jules with you. I hope all is well out your way. I had a long day yesterday and another one today as Kim and her family are all sick with the flu bug or something. Although she said she was going to come to the shelter after her doctor's appointment today, I told her different as she needs to stay home and rest amd look after herself. What a devoted lady!!.

Have a good day. Sending hugs ALWAYS.

Hello Cupcake and Xander....... Cupcake , I hope you are able to run with your brother again as I am sure you are.

Lauvern and All at Luke's shelter.

Morning Charles, Luna smiles and blows a HUGE kiss to Mr Charles  mwah!  then settles down on a soft cloud as Sammy and their friends watch over a truly amazing dad ... Charles, the love in your heart, the unending support can touch our hearts, it can be felt in your words, and yes, No two could have ever loved each other more ... your Sammy, and my little Luna and the countless others that have been blessed to love as we do ... there are days we miss them so much, but then there are days that a smile appears on our faces out of no where, and a thought comes over us touching our senses, and we can feel them them inside,  letting us know they are with us.

Sending sweet thoughts your way, may they find you and keep you safe till you are in each others arms again. Luna, her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too!

My Beautiful Son Sammy .. I wanted to leave you a little note to say "I LOVE YOU, Son" .. today, tomorrow and always .. you are in my heart and soul and I want to tell you that I am so very thankful you were mine .. only mine .. and that I also thank you for saving my life many years ago .. you remember that cold, snowy day ... I surely remember that day when you "kept at me" to wake up out in the cold and snow .. IT WAS YOU who truly saved my life.

I LOVE YOU SAMMY ... always know that.  Always watch over me, Cupcake and Xander.  Sending our love always.
