Thank you and Sammy for stopping by to pay your respects on O'Riley's "Angelversary".  It's always a hard time and it is made a bit easier by those who also know and understand the pain and loss that will never totally go away.  My wish is that you will have a wonderful Christmas, knowing our loved ones who have gone on the much better lives, will always love us and watch over us.  We are never alone.  Thank you so much.  Darci

Hi Charles and Sammy and all your Sweethearts, Just sending best wishes from snowy Socorro tonight, hoping you are all well up there. I has been snowing here for several hours, with some rain mixed in. Looks like a White Christmas here, although we have already had to dig out of one snowstorm already. Hope you are all okay, and that your roads are open and that your heat is working. Bless all of you!!!! Hugs, Carol

Hi Charles. Thank you for letting us know you are ok. Wow you sure have had your share of problems. I am happy you were able to get things fixed up . Another snow storm coming tonight? Well you can send some of it over here as we have no snow for Christmas. The weather certainly is mixed up as we should have alot of snow by now.

Anyway I hope the storm is not too severe.

Take care.

Morning Mr Charles and precious Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.

Luna looks over the situation, and flips open the door, a cool gust of wind lifts the puddle from the house and then the spiraling winds lift it and place it in a clearing amoung some trees, evergreens!!! Luna quietly places some lights, pipes in some music and as the sweet melody plays our little ones start dancing upon a pond of frozen ice, a winter wonderland ... so if you're looking for Christmas ... it does not come in a box ... open your eyes and look at all that surrounds you, in your mind, heart and spirit ...  we are there, happy, willing and waiting! Sending all our love, Luna & her mom

Best Wishes & Season's Greetings,

12-21-2011 6:48 PM -- By: Luna,  From: Christmas 2011  

As Luna sits on her deck watching the stars dance upon the sky, she notices a shooting star flash past her; she jumps up and gets very excited, then quickly closes her eyes to make a wish. When she opens them tiny stars are flashing around her, when they subside and she stops spinning and notices she is dressed in a beautiful “Pink” Santa outfit and begins to glow … She mutters, “Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas”, and when she does she hears a hoof tapping from behind her and sees a sleigh with 8 tiny reindeer … her eyes sparkle brightly and her nose twitches just a little and she mutters, “OMG, I’m Santa!” She spins in delight and quickly jumps on the sleigh with a flick of her wrist she mutters, “We’re off” …. And you can begin to hear the sleigh bells twinge and jingle off in the distance.
She begins to circle all of Rainbow Bridge leaving a pink trail of sparkle dust beneath her, all the angels at the bridge point. Marvel and shout, while gathering up lots of good cheer … they shout,” Hey Luna, Come on, give us a ride” … she nods and makes a graceful landing.  
As she takes each fur angel to their house, near or far and all those in between … each time they land the angel elf jumps off quickly and quietly enters the house … and gaze upon their loving parents fast asleep … when Luna emerges with her sack she quietly places under the pillow of each one sleeping a tiny gift, … “tis a tiding of great joy and all warm wishes”, ... then she turns to lets the angels bond with their family as she heads off to the kitchen or living room to see if any cookies were left for Santa.
When she finishes taking her last sip of milk you can see a glow coming from the room, and when she returns she can feel the warmth of them wrapped in the arms of those they love. With a smile on her face and all the love in her heart she whispers to the darkness of the night and the stars that sparkle so bright, “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”!

 Many ((hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

My dear friend CHarles, Sammy, Bob M, Gabby, CUpcake and Xander,

To believe in making wishes and have faith they can come true,
to believe that you can find some joy in everything you do.
To believe in giving gladly for no reason, just because, to believe in love...that's what it means to believe in Santa Claus.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2012 and heartfelt thanks for continuing to be a wonderful critters friend.

12-20-2011 2:38 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Morning Mr Charles and precious Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.

Luna places an elf hat on Sammy, as she hops off her reindeer and starts to dig in her santa bag, "oh I think I've got it" and emerges with a red box and tiny silver bow and she slips it under Mr Charles' pillow as he sleeps, "it's filled with tidings of great joy and all our hugs and kisses too" ... when Luna looks on she notices Sammy is by his side licking his hand and a glow comes over him ... remember we are always near, and forever with you till you can hold us in your arms again ... we are shining from within your heart! Before jumping upon the sleigh, she places 2 rawhide cane canes on the side of the table for Xander and cupcake ... forevr and always, ((hugs))  Luna & her mom Nadine

“That special place in our hearts feels so empty at this time of year.  But we realize, as time passes, that animals have a way of teaching us about loving, about loyalty, joy, and friendship.  And whatever we've shared in their presence can never really be lost.”

We thank our furbabies for that and wish them a very . . .


12-20-2011 6:49 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Good Morning Charles , handsome boy sammy, Gabby and Bob M and of coarse Cupcake and Xander.

Stopping by to share coffee and coffee cake from our friend Jules with you. I see you are getting hit with yet another snow fall. I think you should send some of it over this way as we have no snow yet and I don't remember Christmas without snow.

Have a good day and don't work too hard shoveling snow. I bet the kids are having a ball in that freshly fallen snow.

All is well out this way just busy getting the last minute things done for Christmas. All the shelter kids have their gifts under the tree already but I will probably find more things for them yet as I have a few more days to shop. I have to hide my kids gifts in the closet or they unwrap them when I go to bed. HaHa.

Sending love and hugs as Always.

Take care and stay safe..

12-19-2011 10:24 PM -- By: Andrea, Talie's Mommay,  From:  

     Dear Charles & Handsome Man Sammy, stopping by to say HI & How Are You? I see by the weather channel that you are getting hammered by some snow tonight...please stay safe & sound! I'm sure your three guardian angels are watching out for you, Xander & Cupcake as always. Things here are back to normal, meaning no more incidents with Lil' Bon Bon & Baby. I really believe it stemmed from me returning to work full time, when they were use to me being home since May when Talie got sick. I will have to ease back into it, part time at first. Tried to get all the pups together for a Christmas Pic to put on here for Mommys Girl, but it didn't quite work out! Lol! They were all excited to begin with, & Poot was having a bad day with every one. Baby kept her antlers on, til Lil' Bon Bon took them off...but not before she took hers off! Labonte kept his on as well, but just walked away & laid down on the couch! And Bandit was so excited & running around that we never even got to put his on! So needless to say, we are going to have to come up with a better game plan! Lol! *But I wouldn't have it any other way, its priceless!  In addition, I'm done my shopping & baking...really just baked for friends & neighbors. May bake some cookies yet, not sure. I'm trying to stay positive...its just not the same Charles. Still Miss Talie So Bad. Just have to stay strong I guess.  But anyhoo, how are things with you, Xander & Cupcake? I'm sure they have been out playing & running around in the snow...while you have to shovel! *Its no fun my friend, I know! But the pups love it, so what the heck. Better close as its time for the pups to go out, etc.    I'm keeping you, Xander & Cupcake in my thoughts & prayers as you go thru this snow storm...stay safe. Sending big hugs & kisses from me & the pups to You, Xander & Cupcake! As Always, Extra Big Hugs & Kisses To Handsome Man Sammy & Mommys Girl & Gabby & Lil' Bob M.!     much Love


12-19-2011 10:17 PM -- By: Carol Palmer,  From: Socorro, New Mexico  

Charles and Sweethearts, Thanks so much for the Christmas greetings, my neighbors to the north. We got more snow today, but most melted off. Most of our streets have so much standing water, because we've had so much moisture in the past weeks. Guess we needed that. Sounds like you may have gotten some snow today, as we heard I-25 was closed north and south of you. Bless you all, on Earth and in Heaven, during this holiday season. I got a Christmas present today, a necklace. It's a heart. On one side, it says "Always in My Heart" and it has a paw print on it. On the other side is engraved "Missy." It's the most beautiful necklace I've ever owned. She is always in my heart, forever. Blessing to you!!! Hugs, Carol

Hi Charles and furbabies,   thank you for visiting Meagan's site for her angelversary.  You are so sweet and have the biggest heart.  I miss my girl and have not yet gotten to the place where I can get another dog or cat.  It will come in time.
