     Dear Charles & Handsome Man Sammy< Stopping In With An Update That All Is Well Here & We Have Remained Dry. We Continue To Have Some Rain Everyday, But Not Bad. And We Also Have A Nip In The Air As Well! Some Places In The Mountains Here Even Got A Lil' Snow! Which Made Me Think Of Mommy's Girl...How She Loved The Snow!       I Always Watch The Weather Station & Thought Of You This Weekend As They Had Coverage Of The Hot Air Balloon Festival! It's In New Mexico, Have You Seen Any Of Them? It Reminded Me Of The Macy Christmas Parade In New York, Amazing!       Kisses & Hugs Given To The Pups From You, Cupcake & Xander!  You Made Me Smile When You Said That Xander & Cupcake Were Chasing Each Other Around Outside, I Can Actually See That! These Guys Always Chase Each Other Around, Especially Now That Theres A Nip In The Air! They Roll Each Other All Around, Get Up & Shake It Off & Back At It Again! Talie Even Got A Couple Chances To Rough House With Them In June. I Never Get Tired Of Watching Them Play As I'm Sure You Don't Watching Xander & Cupcake. One Thing I've Been Meaning To Ask You, But Always Forget, Did Sammy Nibble? Lol  By That I Mean Nibble With His Front Teeth? You Must Think I'm Crazy Asking That But Talie & All The Pups Nibble Everything! Lol! Pillows, Blankets, Clothes You Have On, Each Other! They Always Have & I Don't Know Why. It's No Big Deal & Was Just Wondering If Sammy, Xander Or Cupcake Does That. The Kids & I Have T Shirts With Lil Slit Like Holes In Them From The Nibbles! *You Don't See Anything At First, It's When You Wash Them That The Holes Come Out! Gotta Smile!       Sending Hugs & Kisses From Me & The Pups To You, Cupcake & Xander!     And A Big Hug & Kiss To Handsome Sammy & Mommy's Girl!     much Love

Hi Charles and precious fur kids! Thanks for the visit!! We are doing good here, I had a little cold earlier this week, but am feeling much better today, thank goodness. Our weather is cooling down here also, especially in the evenings which is nice, but the leaves haven't started changing yet. I love autumn and all the colors on the trees - I think it is one of the most beautiful seasons. Anyway, hope all is well with you too. Wishing you and the fur kids a great weekend!! Take care and hugs to all. Gina

Good Morning Charles,

My long gb post went to review so I will just wish you a woderful weekend here.

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

Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and being Friday, of course it has to be Granny's homemade cinnamon rolls. I can smell the yummy aroma of cinnamon all the way from home which is 35 miles away.

I guess we will start raking leaves this weekend around the shelter at least as many of them are down already. The elementry school down the road called me yesterday to see if I needed the kids this weekend . The kids get credits in school for volunteer work of all kinds, so many choose to do fall cleanup wherever needed. Last year we had fourteen kids come out the first weekend of raking and twenty one of them on he last raking weekend. Needless to say, we all had fun . Toby, Tyson and Samantha as well as the shelter resident  dogs all get involved and have fun playing in the leaves. The shelter resident cats love to watch the leaves flying around as they are perched up on their cat trees in their building. All in all it is a fun time of year for all.

Have a grand weekend.

Sending hugs all around as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

     Mornin Charles & Handsome Man Sammy! Wanted To Swing By To See You Early & Say Hi. We Got More Rain Yesterday & The Day Before-It's Terrible. The Town Across From Us Was On The News Due To Flooding. *Lehigh River Seperates Us. Some Of Our Streets & One Of Our Parks Are Under Water. Where We Take The Pups Swimming Is Called "The Sandies," Because Of The White Sand...That Is Under Water As Well. Thankfully, We Are Higher Up & Have Not Sustained Any Damage. They Are Calling For The Rain To Stop & For Fall Like Weather This Weekend. *Down In The 40's @ Night. *Mommy's Girl Loved This Kind Of Weather! Snow Is Just Around The Corner, Another Of Talie's Favorites!     Hope This Finds You Feeling Up To Par Charles. I Know You Said As Soon As You Returned Home, Your Sinus Started Up Again. Know You Are In My Thoughts & Prayers.Give Cupcake & Xander A Big Hug & Kiss For Me. And As Always, Handsome Sammy Continue To Watch Over "Mommys Girl"     Much Love

Morning Charles, Xander and cupcake. Big hugs from us to you! Yes, keeping a close eye on the weather, do not worry Sammy, Gabby and Bob M are hoping for lots of snow, and you know what they say, the angels always deliver.

We often look to the sky and marvel at the sky, and when it is lit beyond comapre we watch them dance knowing our kids are looking over us. Sending many hugs and tiny kisses,  Luna & her mom Nadine

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet note for Toby's birthday. It means so very much to me! Give Cupcake and Xander a kiss for me!

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

Thank you for coffee and sour dough bread yesterday. "yummy". Much appreciated after a busy but fun weekend. We held a pet seminar this past weekend which showed some great results. There are four dogs and three cats pending adoption now, which is GREAT. If the background checks turn out ok, we will have a few empty kennels to fill .

Yes Samantha is being respoiled by Granny and I know she is happy to have granny back and things back to normal. Saturday night ,she decided she wanted to come home with Tyson and Toby. When the both of them jumped in my car to go home, she followed them. I think she wanted some soft icecream. Ha-Ha. So as always ,she got her way and came home with us and yes we did walk down for soft icecream after dinner. It's a good thing all three of them have been trained to walk on the leash properly as I can just imagine trying to walk all three of them at the same time if they were pulling on their leashes.I would need roller blades to stay with them as well as we would no doubt stop the traffic. Ha-Ha.They all know the way to Dairy Queen where they get soft icecream. I am sure if any of them got out of the yard they would just go over there.Ha-Ha.

Sending fresh hot coffee and a variety of Granny's homemade cookies to get our day going.

Have a good day! Sending hugs all around always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Stopping In To Say Good Night To Handsome Man Sammy & His Daddy Charles. I'm Sure You Got A Big Welcome When You Got Home From Cupcake & Xander! Thats The Best Feeling In The World!      I Have To Thank You As Well For Always Knowing What To Say So I Feel A Lil' Better. I'm Still Waiting For Talie To Send Me A Sign That She Is OK, Maybe I Am Looking Too Hard, OLr Maybe I'm Not Ready Yet.  And You Are Right, The Pups Still Look For Her To Come Bouncing Along When I Call Her. I Know They Miss Her & Wonder Where She Is. I Lavish Them All With Hugs & Kisses...& Tears. Labonte Hangs Really Close To Me Now, Maybe He's Trying To Take That Spot For His Mom. *He's Such A Gentle Giant & Scared Of Everything Lol.    Better Close Now As I Have To Put Out Trash & Let Pups Out. Will Visit Again Soon Cause I Can't Stay Away! Lol     Handsome Sammy Continue To Watch Over Mommy's Girl. Sending Many Hugs & Much Love

My Dearest Kids .. Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. I just wanted to stop by as I could not stop by on Monday as I was attending a conference out of state .. BUT .. I know you three were always with me.

Sammy, how your dad so loves and misses you with every heart beat.  I just finished reading a story about Annie and Rudy .. and they are there at Rainbow Bridge .. please find them and tell them your daddy loves them too.  Sammy, give them lots of hugs and kisses from me as they need many hugs and kisses.

Sending you my love from here to Rainbow Bridge.  Always be with me my beloved Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

Good Morning Charles and WELCOME BACK!

Stopping by this early morning with fresh hot coffee and Granny's homemade cinnamon rolls. YESSS Granny is back home. We certainly have missed her around here. I took Samantha with me to the airport to pick Granny up. Well talk about a emotional reunion!!! They were both so happy to see each other as I can just feature Cupcake and Xander were to see you "vice versa". These fur babies certainly have a way of  showing their love for us humans, if given a chance. If you can just imagine, Granny and Samantha sat in the back seat of my car as they couldn't get close enough to each other and I was alone up front. I wonder what people thought. Ha-Ha. Granny had her arm around Samantha all the way home which is about a 45 minute drive. All is back to normal now.

Have a grand weekend as I am sure you will enjoy it with the kids.

Hello handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. I know you all were watching over your dad and Cupcake and Xander as you always do.

Sammy..... It is getting close to that time of year where I have to count on Luke and yourself to help me with finding fur babies that might need rescue. I know you two will work together as always.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi Charles & Handsome Sammy! Seems Like I Haven't Visited You In Ages! *My Tower Went Down & I Ended Up Having To Get A New One. Charles I Hope You Are Feeling Alot Better Now & Good As New. *I'm Sure Handsome Sammy Was There Watching Over You. All Is The Same Here, I Can't Believe Mommy's Girl Has Been Gone A Lil Over 5 Weeks Now. I Found Some Of Her Baby Pics Today & It Killed Me. *She Was So Little, We Thought She Would Never Grow. But She Did, & While She Was At It, She Grew Into My Best Friend. I Still Cry Everyday For Her & Would Give Anything To Just Hug Her & Smell Her Again. But I'm Sure You Already Knew That. I'm Doing My Best To Cope & I Know It's A Process. I'm Thankful To Friends Like You & Lauvern. Whether You Know It Or Not, You & Your Furbabies Are Getting Me Through A Time In My Life That I Wasn't Prepared To ReVisit This Soon. So Thank You From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart.     And As Always, Handsome Man Sammy, Please Continue To Watch Over Mommys Girl. Giving You All A Big Hug & Much Love

Good Morning Charles and kids. Just stopping by to wish you a grand Sunday and hope you are begining to feel better. I know these sinus infections seem to linger on forever.

It is raining here today which is much needed as we have not had rain for awhile now. I guess I will have many paws to clean today. Its a good thing I have Toby, Tyson and Samantha trained to stand at the door till they get their paws cleaned up. They have all be out in the mud already this morning. The only mud I have in my yard is around the trees and flower gardens but SOMEHOW they all seem to find it. Ha-Ha.

We are all off to the shelter. Have a grand Sunday and I know your little nurses " Cupcake and Xander"will take good care of you.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. I am sure Sammy has left a lasting impression on you as my Kava did for me. I don't know if the pain and void will every subside. But I know one day he will again be by my side. God bless you and Sammy.

Thank you so much for remembering my Deputy Dog on his brithday. Your Sammy is so handsome and what a lovely tribute to a wonderful friend and companion. I'm crying as I read about him.  I hope he and Deputy are hanging out together at the Bridge, along with my BooBoo too.

Hi, Charles! I am sorry that you're not up to speed yet. I hope you start feeling a lot better soon!

I am not taking anymore dogs right now. I have to get my shoulder and rib healed. The work with the dog food and such is keeping me from healing properly. A foster system has been set up....

Gotta feed the chickens. I had to have Cagney put to sleep yesterday. She wasn't going to make it through the winter and I decided that I had to let go and let her go. She is happier now.

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

Thank you for coffee and cookies yesterday. It was much appreciated as these days i hardly have time to make coffee in the morning. The nights are getting cooler so it is a bit harder to get out of bed in the mornings,Ha-Ha. Samantha woke me up this morning as she "thought" she heard something outside. She is not accustomed to the city noises. I am not sure what she thought she heard but Tyson and Toby didn't fuss so I guess it was not serious. Ha-Ha.

Leaving you a fresh pot of hot coffee and Raspberry Danish to help get your day going. I have another long and busy day today but a fun day as always.

Yes Samantha certainly does help me with chores . She makes sure I don't forget to fill any of the shelter kids food and water dishes as she leads me from one kennel to the next. Doris and her certainly have a routine as she knows exactly what has to be done. Doris called last night and I had asked her if she fed the cats first in the mornings and she said she did.As I had mentioned to you , Samantha led me to the cat kennels as soon as we got to the shelter on Sunday morning. She definately knows the routine. Ha-Ha.

I hope you are feeling better. Have a grand day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and the crew at Luke's shelter.
