Hi Charles and precious fur kids... keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I do hope you had a wonderful vacation, but am so sorry to hear you came back to all those fires. I do pray you get some much needed rain soon... we had a downpour here the other day and wish I could send some your way!! You and the fur kids take care. Sending hugs your way. Gina, Saada & Juji

Good Morning Charles and kids. Thankyou so much for the kind post  as always and wishes for a grand day tomorrow.I have relayed your message to all here at the shelter. I know they appreciate all of your kindness as I do.Thankyou for recognising my volunteers. I truely appreciate you doing so. As you know, without them, I could not go on doing what I do. Although I am always grateful for all that they do and always tell them so, I know coming from someone else helps them to know how special they are. I had a little boy in grade four who volunteers on weekends say to me a while back{after seeing Luke's posts} "WOW! someone in NM knows that I am helping out at Luke's shelter"."Smile" so your kind posts don't ever go unnoticed.

I see by the news ,the fires and smoke have not given you any relief yet. When will it ever end? Keeping good thoughts and in our prayers in hopes that you soon get the rain you all so badly need.

Sammy.......Find Luke and gather up all the fur kids at Rainbow Bridge and continue to do the NM rain dance. That has got to work!! Keep watching over your Dad and Cupcake and Xander in those wild fires and smoke as I know you always do.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Thanks so much for stopping by on my cat Axl's 2nd Angelversary a couple weeks ago.  His loss still chokes me up!  For 20 years he was truly my furry soulmate, and it sounds like Sammy was yours too.  You must have been together in past lives.  I lost my precious 15-year old brown lab Late' this past January.  She could no longer get up by herself either - I know how hard it is when they reach that point!  I used the towel to hoist her hind end up the stairs every night for a year because she refused to sleep downstairs alone.  When her eyesight started to go we knew it was her time to move on while she still had her dignity.  She had a long and happy life, just like Sammy.  Thanks, and take care!

Charles, my thoughts and prayers are with you ... keep your babies inside!!! Especially when you're not home, you never know if they may get frightened or want to get out ... which would only lead to heart ache ... so please keep them indoors ... and know our angels are watching over you all. ((hugs)) Nadine & her girls

I am so sorry that you had to come back to the fires still burning out of control. From the news that we are able to get,it seems like the fires are worsening as is the smoke. GOOD GRIEF!

I hope that you enjoyed your vacation but I know with no doubt in my mind that you certainly had missed the kids and probably worried about  the smoke situation.

We have all here at Luke's shelter been watching the updates on the fires and smoke and wondering when it will ever end. So sad! We are all keeping positive thoughts and keeping you all in our prayers and hope that you get that much needed rain REAL SOON.

Thankyou for the coffee and danish this morning. It was much appreciated. I have been quite busy with classes which are going great and I have faith that all the fur kids leaving the shelter to go to their forever homes will bring nothing but joy to their new parents. The people wishing to adopt from the shelter have all been accepting my offer of free training classes for them and the fur kid that they wish to adopt before they leave the shelter. I have not had to make taking the classes mandatory before they can adopt as of yet as so far they all seem to appreciate the free  classes

Yes we will be celebrating Canada Day on Friday. We are doing so at the shelter. I have company in from Florida as well as one of Doris's daughters and kids are in from Alberta and will be staying with her for the summer months. We are having a BBQ as well as I have some "clowns" and  pony rides coming in for the Elementary school volunteers. It should be a fun filled day.Of course the fur kids will all be involved,especially in the BBQ area. Ha-Ha.

Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way for much needed rain.Stay safe and I hope these wild fires get under control real soon.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi Charles and Sammy, Xander and cupcake ... welcome home Charles, you were missed. I sure do hope the rain comes, Luna bows her head and sends a gentle prayer ... that the much needed rain is headed your way. You are all in our thougths! ((hugs)) Luna & her mom

Good Morning Charles and kids. Just stopping by with fresh hot coffee as I was up early this morning due to all the thunder going on around here. " I don't like thunder storms'. My two boys Tyson and Toby don't help much as they are afraid of them also.Ha-Ha. Luke was never afraid of them and  always tried his hardest to make me believe that I was in no danger as he was beside me. He seemed to sense that I was afraid of it. He certainly was my "Rock".

I see that the rains have not found their way to you yet. I hope they do soon. Have a grand day.

Sending Hugs all around and know we are all thinking of you in all of that smoke and hopeing you stay safe.

Lauvern and all at Luke's Shelter.

Hi Charles.... Thanks so much for stopping by recently.  Sorry for the delay in getting back to you -- I am very far behind in responding to my guestbook messages.  I am very sorry for missing little Bob Macaroni's 2nd Angel Day   -- it is so hard to believe that 2 years have gone by already.  I am sure Sammy is taking real good care of him.  Judging from what you wrote, I assume that you may be having some wildfires in your area???  I hope not, as I know how devastating they can be when they consume countless acres of land.  We get them pretty frequently where I live too -- often due to improper campfire extinguishing, careless leaf burning (which as an asthmatic I cannot stand!), or lightning strikes.  I thought for sure we were going to have some wildfires recently, as we experienced heat in the low 90's (and horrible humidity!) for about 2 weeks straight with no rain.  Everything here was dry as a bone and the heat was oppressive!  But we finally got a few days of very severe thunderstorms complete with hail and the works.  It wasn't ideal, but the rain helped.  It sure has been a year for wacky weather that's for sure!  I hope you and your furkids are doing well and that you are not having wildfires nearby.  I know my dog, Teddy, much prefers having the snow to play in, as the heat gets to be too much for him.  I know your kids love the snow too.  Well, I do appreciate you stopping by and I wish you well.  I hope you enjoy the upcoming weekend.  Take Care.
Best Wishes Always,  Skye
