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

Thank you for your visits, kind posts and  coffee in the past couple of days. I have started classes with the four dogs that ,seems like have found their furever homes, with their pending new parents. We had our first class yesterday and will have our second on Monday and see where it goes from there. All looks good so far. "smile". The cats are going to be visited by the people that want to adopt them again this weekend. i hope that goes well also.

We are in the deep freeze weather now. I guess it is not any colder than usual for us in January but we have been spoiled with the much warmer winter until now.

Doris, Kim and Lawrence send their regards and hope all is well out your way. Lawrence says he is waiting for updates on what is taking place in NM with the PitBulls so please keep us posted.

Take care and have a great day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Charles, what a GREAT memorial!!! You're gonna have to give me some tips to pimp up Tony's! Sammy was such a HANDSOME dog!! Your write up is very touching; how fortunate he was to have such a caring daddy.  Very nice, Charles. Very Nice. Sorry it took me so long to be a good neighbor and check out your page here. Do keep in touch!!

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

Thank you for stopping by with coffee and goodies. We had the BEST winter carnival ever with hopefully great results for more furbabies. We now have 5 cats and 4 dogs pending adoption which I have been working on and so far all looks good. YESSSS. We had beautiful weather both days which allowed many more kids to come out with their parents. On Sunday ,we had 209 kids and parents attending. Of coarse some of those  kids were there Sat. as well. Never the less, the turnout was great and fun was had by all.

I am now working on okaying these pending furever homes for 9 furbabies so needless to say, I will be busy but it's all worth it. "Smile"

Have a grand day and don't work too hard as I know we sometimes tend to do. "smile". I have to say I was excausted by Sunday night but it was WELL worth it.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and ALL at Luke's shelter.

Thank you, Charles, for your post on my Addie's memorial page.  Your kind words are much appreciated.  Your Sammy was a beautiful boy!  I am so thankful to have found this website and all the wonderful, understanding people here.  People who are not animal lovers simply do not understand how anyone can grieve so deeply over the loss of a beloved pet.  Like you, I have lost quite a few beloved furbabies in the past - my Oreo Cookie, Little Gray Matter, Preshy, Stripey, Gidget, Ginger, as well as my son's kitty, Boo-Boo, and my daughter's kitty, Natasha, who passed at the young age of 6 of fibrosarcoma (an eye-opener to the dangers of the rabies vaccine!!).  May your babies rest in peace and hopefully, while our dogs and kitties may have been adversaries in the real world, they are all playing together and enjoying each other at the Rainbow Bridge.

Good Sunday Morning Charles and kids. Thank you for your visit and coffee as well as thinking of us. Your kindness is always appreciated by not only myself but all here at Luke's Shelter. I know they all visit Luke's site often and have mentioned your posts .So THANK YOU. As you know.without them all I could never be able to do what I do.

The carnival went real well yesterday. We had 147 people in attendance "kids and parents". The weather was just perfect which helped alot. We do expect even more today as in the last years, there were always more attend on Sunday then Saturday.  The great news is there are now 3 cats and 2 dogs pending adoption.. YESSSSSSS.

Got to get back to work. We have lots of food, goodies,coffee,etc. As well as the horses and toboggons are all ready to go again today. We have another beautiful day with light snow falling.

Have a grand day.

Sending hugs all around.

As that day came upon me I wondered how the day would be. I sat in my recliner and looked at my photo album. My eyes filled with tears as I remembered how my girl loved me, I remembered the way we would play and the hugs we shared. I remembered how I would share my dinner with my girl. My tears eventually turned my face to a smile as I reflected back upon all the wonderful memories Barbra had left me. I checked my mail and I found you took the time to remember us too. I want to say "Thank You" for remembering us on this day.

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

Thank you for the coffee the past couple of days and your kind posts as always. Thank you for the compliment on Luke's picture as well. I was so excited to get enough snow to be able to hold the carnival this weekend that I had to have Luke in the snow as well. I know he will be there with us in spirit also.

How is Cupcake doing? I hope doing real well as I am sure she is. These furkids at times hurt themselves and we don't know where or when it happen.

I am working on getting a couple of horses and sleds for the carnival  but  all else is in place. The farmer I normally get them from has his already booked out to another carnival going on this weekend but said he would get me at least one horse and sled but maybe even two from a friend of his. I guess all the winter activities had to wait till we got the snow to carry on and now that we have snow,everything is going on.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Afternoon Charles and kids. Thank you for coffee this morning and most of all, THE SNOW. YESSSSSSS. What started out to be rain this morning  turned to snow and came down full force and the temperture is cooling off and suppose to stay that way for the rest of the week so it shouldn't melt away .We have had about six inches of snow so far  today and it is still snowing heavy. My car outside is covered. It looks like we will be holding the carnival next weekend.Lawrence and front end loader are at work right now starting on building the hill for a toboggon slide. He says if he doesn't get enough  snow to build a nice sized hill,he will go get more snow from across the road. HaHa .

Samantha, Toby and Tyson as well as all the shelter kids are having a ball outside in the freshly fallen snow.

We are happy to hear Cupcake is back to being herself and its a good idea to keep her from running and jumping for awhile yet. We will continue to keep her in our prayers.

Take care and have a grand wekend. It looks like I will be busy getting things prepared for the carnival. YESSSS.. Keep sending that snow our way as the higher the toboggon hill the more fun for the kids."smile"

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M and of coarse Cupcake and Xander.

Thank you for visiting and  coffee for the past couple of days and your kindness as always. I am starting to get back to normal after the holidays. It is raining here today which is not at all our kind of weather for this time of year. I was hopeing to get enough snow to have a  toboggon slide hill made for the volunteer kids but don't know if I will be able to get it done this winter. I was wanting to hold a winter carnival for them as a Thank you for helping out . I still may do so but have to think of some other fun activities for them.

Doris sends her regards and says she is continuing to keep Cupcake in her prayers as she mends. She can only imagine trying to keep her quiet as she doesn't know how she could ever keep Samantha quiet.

That is great news about the new shelter going up in NM. We certainly need more of them around the world.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

P/S Cupcake... be a good girl  as I know you are and listen to your Dad and you will soon be able to race around with Xander again.

01-02-2012 2:34 PM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  


Hi Charles and kids. Just a quick stop while I have my lunch to say Hello and hope the holidays went well for you. I am glad they are over and it certainly is good to be back home after my short but fun trip. Now the had part of catching up on things left undone are upon me but I will get it done."Smile".

I am thinking of sweet Cupcake and praying she is doing well as I am sure Xander is also. My kids haven't left my side since I got home, I get the feeling that they missed me while I was away.haha.

Take care and have a grand day,

Sending hugs all around.

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved fur babies family and friends
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives



And when I ponder those who do,
I immediately think of you.All my precious friends on Critters



Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have a Happy New Year!
Thinking of you all and your fur babies.Thanku for looking after me. Much love and many
hugs. God Bless xx

Hi again Charles. I  wanted to add, had I known that I was going to Vegas, I certainly would have let you know and it would have been awesome to meet with you in person. It seems everyone else knew we were going but Trina and myself. We got our gifts late Christmas Day.Needless to say, I had alot to do in one day as I had to make sure everything was OK before I left.HaHa. I certainly will let you know the next time that I go to Vegas, of coarse with some notice. HaHa.

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

Thank you so much for your visits and posts to Luke while I was away. It was nice to get away and we did have a wonderful time but YES I did miss my kids and all the shelter kids as I always do. I knew they were all being well looked after but I missed them anyway. I was almost knocked over by Toby and Tyson when I got home so I guess they missed me too.haha.

I haven't been to the shelter yet but am on my way there with gifts for all of coarse.I  wondered about all them squeaky toys in my luggage at the border, hahaha,but all went well. Its good to be back home. I will write to you a little later today when I get back to normal. haha. This nitelife is something else.

Hopeing all is well with you and Cupcake and Xander.
