Hi Charles:

Am stopping by a day early to wish handsome Sammy a happy 4th angelversary at the bridge. Please take tomorrow to reflect on all of the wonderful memories you two shared. I am sure he is doing the same. The love you two shared is an inspiration to all. Cherish that always.  Hope you are having a nice vacation.

Charles, Bon Voyage!! What an adventure, going to Australia. Sammy and Gabby and Bob M are surely with you as you travel. Thanks for the coffee and the goodies before you left. I hope you have a fabulous trip. Really hot here lately, windy today. I am giving the furbabies droppersful of Pedialyte to keep them hydrated. You're in our throughts and prayers as you travel.

We sit beneath the night sky
by the whisper of the wind song...
in the quiet of darkness.
And they are never far.
Those we have loved and cherished,
those who have changed our lives
in some small or profound way
are closer than we know,
because it is their light
that shines on our world.
It is the brilliance
of their souls
that makes our night sky glow.

Dear Charles: Thinking of you this morning and wishing I had a breakfast burrito. Is Tia Sophia's still in business? 

How are you? Sammy is full of chocolate, as he went to Butler's birthday party and stuffed himself with the cake Patti LaBella made! He made sure that everyone had  a great time! He sang several songs. Butler requested that Sammy provide the entertainment.

It is cloudy today and misting a bit. I hope it doesn't rain. I'm sick of rain. :) I hope that spring has started showing it's pretty face to you. Spring in New Mexico is special and I know you and the 'babies' enjoy it.

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.  Stopping by this morning with fresh hot coffee and granny's homemade cinnamon rolls"yesss, we have granny's homemade baking again as she is back in full force and baking up a storm. HaHa.

All is well here. The Boxer puppies are doing great as is their mom.The Rottie is pending adoption and is doing REAL well. It looks like he has found his forever loving home. What a different personality!! Samantha and him are getting along real well as are my kids and him. He is a beautiful dog but just needed a little help with his attitude which he did get in a loving way as you know.

I bet you are getting excited about your trip .That is just awesome!! I know you will have a fun time and yes Cupcake and Xander will be well looked after and spoiled.

Have a god day and Thank you for coffee and cookies yesterday.

Sending our love and hugs as always.

Good Afternoon dear friend Charles and furchildren,

I am glad my card made you smile and I hope you know  that you are not leaving Sammy, he will be right with you on your adventure soon to come. How excited you must be. Make sure you leave Xander and Cupcake their favorite treats from you to be given each evening at bedtime, I know they will miss you and will be in good hands. ((()))

Dear Charles,

Thank you very much for visiting our Bud and your kindest and most caring notes--it really helps to know that true true animal lover like you are still around in this cruel world.  Beautiful Sammy is intently looking at me from the screen as I type.  I do hope your Sammy is kind to Bud, although I'm sure of it.  I still worry about Bud, since he was abused as a pup before we found each other.  Like Sam saved your life, Bud was my world and my life evolved around me.  All those happy memories still are too painful. I still cannot write a tribute, but managed to put songs that I want to tell him (and vice versa) on his memorial site.

My passion is same as yours: to rescue an abused big dogs. Pitbulls and German Shepherds are the most abused breeds, I know, it's horribly sad. Retrievers and Dobermans, too... I wish our politicians were more animal advocates, don't you?  What you do for all those beautiful pit bulls is the most admirable.  But, it certainly is unbearably sad when I had to have my beloved Bud euthanized, while I had to be left behind. 

Sammy's memorial site is so beautiful, like him. I feel privileged to have met you, a determined animal lover, and the credit goes to our dearest friends Diana and Leya--they led me to the critters family!  Indeed, I am not alone...

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Thank you for coffee this morning as it was needed much more then ever.  We are having another beautiful sunny day today so I will be spending my day outdoors with all the fur kids.

I know it must be a beautiful fun filled day at Rainbow Bridge as well today as the kids all celebrate Butler's special day."Smile"

Have a grand day.

Sending hugs as Always.

Charles...I just posted this to you in Luke's guestbook, so am going to try and copy and paste it where it belongs.HaHa. I hope it works. I think I need more coffee. Ha.

Good Morning Charles,handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Stopping by with fresh hot coffee to get our day going. You are very welcome for the pictures. I remember you saying that Sammy loved to watch you plant flowers and would take time to smell them. I hope the pics of him in the flowers brought back some fond memories as I am sure you have many. I am happy to hear your nice weather has arrived and you were able to do your yard work over the weekend. I am sure Cupcake and Xander "helped" you dig as my kids do when I am digging around .HaHa...I had my yard at home done for a week now but we wers able to finish up the  shelter yard yesterday as I had eight high school kids come to help which I certainly appreciated. We got a nice rain last night which finished things off just perfect as it washed things and settled the dust down.Everything looks so nice and clean and ready for summer now.

Granny says Hello and Thank you for thinking of her. She is feeling alot better now and yes she is back here at the shelter bright and early this morning.

Thank you for the coffee and lemon squares yesterday.  Much appreciated! I am sure you are busy getting ready for your vacation as I know I would be.

I have the Boxer puppies in classes today and am surely looking forward to that. Today I will "try" and teach them to give up their toy. This should be a laugh. HaHa.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs as Always.

Lauvern and All at Luke's Shelter.

Blessed Charles and Sweet Sammy, Gabby, and Bob M, little Xander and Cupcake, Thanks for the recent visits and for the delicious goodies. I love the Starbucks mocha frappes, but here in Socorro, have to get them at McDonalds. They're good, but nothing like Starbucks. I hope your Monday is full of joy. Our grandson is feeling much better, and is back at home in Bloomfield, where he went back to kindergarten this morning. He was so dear and helpful with Peggy Sue, our little afflicted adoptee, very gentle with her. He said she was his favorite dog. She is so helpless much of the time, pretty blind and with neurological problems, but she has a cute little personality and we love her so. Bless you on this Monday, and I hope you all have a fabulous week!!! Love and hugs, Carol

Good Early Friday Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Stopping by early this morning with fresh hot coffee and our Friday special of Cinnamon Rolls "store bought ones of course" as Doris is still under the weather but is feeling better daily.Of course she just can't stay away, so comes and visits the shelter kids daily.

The  Boxer babies are doing great and socializing well with the other shelter kids. Puppy classes are so much fun as I love to see them "try" and take commands. HaHa. Of course they are too young to learn much yet but what they are capable of learning ,they are doing good. They will all be coming back for Obedience training with their new parents when they are six months old.

The weather here is still sunny and warm and is suppose to stay that way through the weekend. Needless to say, all the fur kids are enjoying the beautiful weather outside as am I.

Thank you for the coffee and kind post yesterday , as always.Doris saw your post and said Thank you and she can't wait to get back into baking for all as well as looking after "her" shelter babies.

Have a good day and a grand weekend, which I am sure you will enjoy with Cupcake and Xander.

Sending hugs from all at Luke's shelter.

Beanie & Tina thank you for your Birthday wishes.......Beanie would have been 16 and there is not a day that goes by that I don't miss her. She was a great friend and I too love her breed.

Dear freinds Charles, Sammy, Bob M, Gabby, Xander & Cupcake,

It has been a busy time so I have been unable to visit with my best and most cherished critters frends. I am sorry to hear of your weather woes. Every time it seems like spring might poke it's head out here we get another round of cold, wet and or windy weather. We still manage to get in our walks and ball playing time as the furkids do not seems to mind what is happening with their nice fur coats to protect them.  Know you and you children are often in my thoughts. Hugs to you all.
