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.

hi sammy,hi charles...thankyou for  remembering fergi! we love you!

09-12-2011 10:27 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Good Morning Charles and Kids. I just got done feeding the shelter kids and getting the morning chores done. I almost forgot what all has to be done in the mornings as Doris normally does the morning routine.  Of course I had Samantha helping me. It seems as though her and Doris have a routine as to who gets fed first,etc. as she led me to the cat kennels first,then to the cupboard where their dishes and food are. Ha-Ha. She is staying with e now and coming home with me in the evenings. Of course she loves the car rides daily along with my Tyson and Toby.

I hope you are feeling better and I know you are well taken care of by your nurses Cupcake and Xander. There is alot of people around with the sinus infections. I guess its that time of year again. My allerrgies normally get me first  which then turn to a sinus infection. I know how nasty they can be. Take care of yourself Charles and know I am wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thankyou for your kindness as always. Have a grand day.

Sending hugs all around.

Dear Charles and family,

So sorry to see that you have been under the weather. I know Xander and Cupcake are good company but I also know they cannot bring soup or whatever kinds of things make yu feel better. Here's hopping you are good as new soon.

I am looking forward to seeing Sammy all framed and beuitful as ever when you are up to it. I anxiously await Princess.

Hi Charles, Handsome Sammy, Gabby, Bob m and Cupcake and Xander. Just stopping by to wish you a grand weekend. I hope you are well enough to go to the carnival as I know how much you are looking forward to it.

Granny Doris and her daughters are leaving on their vacation tomorrow morning so I will have some extra work for the next two weeks but thank goodness Lawrence and his wife Betty will be coming to the shelter daily and helping out as well as the high school kids will be coming in the evenings and weekends. I will also be soliciting for some help from family and friends. Ha-Ha.I would like to continue training classes during the two weeks so the more help I can get the better. The obedience classes  for the fur kids are certainly making a difference."smile". I have been using Samantha or Tyson as my sidekick for classes. Although they already know the basic obedience,and find it boring, they help me out. Ha-Ha. I tried Toby "my bulldog" for a class last night but that was a joke as he did his command before I even commanded him to do so....Ha-Ha. At least Samantha and Tyson TRY and wait for their commands.Ha-Ha. Anyway needless to say its all in fun. I have a class of ten  to twelve week old puppies tonight which I enjoy as they are so cute and don't have a clue what I am talking about but they all know what cookie means and intime learn that they have to do what they are commanded to do before they get one.

Have a enjoyable weekend and I hope you feel better soon.

Sending hugs all around.

So Sorry I Haven't Stopped By The Last Two Nights. Please Know That You & Your Dad Were In My Thoughts. It Was 3 Weeks Yesterday That Mommy's Girl Hasn't Been Here, I'm Still Crying & Can't Seem To Come To Grips That She Is Gone. I'm Trying So Hard, I Know She Wouldn't Want Me To Act This. I'm Still Writing In My Journal Every Night. I've Been Going Through Pictures To Put Here...I Came Across The Pics Of Talie Her First Day Home After Surgery. She Was Only To Be Here For 3 More Months. I'm Glad I Didn't Know The End Was So Near. If She Knew, She Never Let On. She Was Her Old Self, A Pup Again & Stubborn As Always. *She Always Got Her Way Anyways. We Had So Much Fun From May To August, She Gave Me That Gift.   As Always Handsome Sammy Please Keep An Eye On Mommy's Girl. Hugs & Kisses To You, Gabby & Bob M. & To All The Furbabies Who Are Missed So Much.    I Did't Forget about You Charles, I'm So Sorry You Are Not Feeling Up To Par. Sinus Problems Are The Worst! Please Feel Better Soon & Know My Thoughts Are With You      Much Love

charles, i just wanted to take this time to thank you for the beautiful memorial that you wrote in my baby jacks guest book.  i miss him so very very much but your words helped me so much to cope with his loss.  i feel so proud that i sincerely met someone who loves the bully bread as much as i do.  Jack was so very special to me , I just wish we had more years together but i know his spirot is watching over me and his soulmate, my other pit bull, elliemae.  Sammy reminds me so much of jack. I can look into his eyes and see the love he had for you just like my jack did for me.  I know you miss him so much and he will never be forgotten.  I know sammy received his "Doggie Wings " just like my jack did.  Your msg gave me great confort to keep going on since my jack passed. Its hard and most people I meet that I tell them about Jack thinks its so silly to grive over a "dog", but they just dont understand what a bond me and my jack had for the short time he was here on this earth. When I can, I am going to sponsor Jacks memory so I can put more pictures and tell jacks story in more detail.  Again, thank you so very much for caring....Sandy Ozio, Jacks momma

I would love to partake in some sweet goodies every morning! Yummmmmmm, fresh hot coffee!!

Charles, you can buy a "neti pot" at your drugstore (walgreens, walmart, any pharmacy) and it will help you with your sinus problems. I promise you, it works. It is $15 and worth $1000 to me. I have bad allergies and it works on those and my friend uses it for his sinus problems and it gives him relief. After I use the packets that are enclosed, I make my own solution. Cheaper that way.

I hope you feel better soon.......xoxox Pat

Good Morning Charles , handsome Sammy, Gabby, Bob m and Cupcake and Xander. Stopping by to have coffee and danish sent by Jules with you. Jules knew when to send it as my coffee maker stopped working this morning and I certainly need my coffee to get my day going.

I just wanted to let you know that the two new fur kids did great on their first weekend with their new parents.  They came back to the shelter on Sunday with their new parents as we thought it would be a good idea to socialize them with the many people around because of the carnival. They did great and the parents are very happy with them as they are very interested in taking classes with them. They had their first class Monday night but it was just a introductory class. We start the actual obedience classes Monday and they will have classes once weekly for six weeks, unless of course they have a problem that needs more attention, which I don't believe there will be any. I passed your message on to the new parents . They wanted me to thank you for the well wishes and let you know they also love the  bully breed. They have had three bullies and two boxers and two german shepherds in the past. I am so happy for the two kids as I know they have found a loving home.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi Charles and kids. Just stopping by to enjoy Jules coffee with you as well as I see Pat baked some hot rolls. Yummm. Thank you for stopping by and being with us in spirit over the weekend.

We had a very busy but fun weekend.We lost count of the kids that attended but on Saturday night ,the last count was 231 kids and either one or both of their parents besides them. JUST GREAT! The weather was perfect as it wasn't too hot and no rain to spoil it. All in All it was the best carnival help here yet .I certainly was fortunate to have family and friends helping out as we got a bigger turnout then expected. JUST GREAT!! Byron and Lawrence had them bbqs fired up and could barely keep up with the cheeseburgers, hamburgers and hot dogs. Ha-Ha. Kim  and Doris and her two daughters were bbqing chicken  and sausages. My sister was on the salad table, keeping the salad bowls filled as well as keeping pop on ice. The carnival  company brought in their own employees for the candy and carmel apple machine as well as the candy floss machine which certainly helped. The fur kids "our own and the shelter kids"  also enjoyed the weekend as they got alot of extra attention and of course extra treats. Ha Ha.  All in All it was a great weekend andenjoyed by all.

I am taking it easy today but back too long days tomorrow. Its a good thing I love what I do.

Have a great day.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.
