Hi Charles and precious fur kids... thanks for stopping by and your kind post. I don't get to visit as much as in the past either, but do keep all my wonderful critter's friends and family in my thoughts! Things are going well here, just keeping busy with work, and hope to get out and enjoy some nice weather finally this weekend! Getting a little tired of the rain, it's great for the plants, but I'm ready for sunshine!! Hope you all are doing well and wishing you a wonderful weekend! Take care. Hugs, Gina, Saada and Juji

Good Morning Charles, handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. Thankyou for the coffee and your kindness as always. I know you are busy with traveling and all but just wanted you to know you were being thought of. I know Cupcake and Xander must be over excited when you get home as well as no doubt want all of your attention.

Take care and don't over work yourself.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's Shelter.

Good Morning Charles and kids. Thankyou for your post and kind words as always. Thankyou for letting us know where you will be if we don't see any posts from you. We had a nice Easter here . Although it was busy as I prepared dinner for 27 of us, it was fun and nice to see a few that I haven't seen in awhile. Now I have to get back in routine.

Have a great week and don't work too hard. Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

I am so excited!  My Easter post finally showed up.

Thank you Charles for stopping by.  Hope you had a great Easter.  I went to my daughter's for dinner.  Had to take two pies with me and ended up leaving half or one and all but one piece of the other.  There's 7 in their family so they will get them eaten.

Hi Charles,

My latest post went to the review void. Hope it makes it to you. While you have been in my thoughts, work has me tied up. Take care.

Dear Chares, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,

I wanted to stop in to let you know that I am still here but have been tied up with problems at work. As a small business owner the buck starts, continues and stops with me. I wear every hat in the book and miss connecting with my friends. Know you have been in my thoughts even if not in writing. How did Sammy's memorial day truck ride go? Be well my friend.

Luna hops down the bunny trail and stops at Sammy;s door, knock-knock-knock, and when he opens it Luan is in a pair of pink fuzzy bunny ears and a soft white cotton tail, then Sammy notices the basket of cookies and welcomes her in ... as he is busy munching on the cookies Luna is digging in her bag and pulls out a pair of white (not so fuzzy) bunny ears and places them on Sammy head, then he notices the tail and starts to shake his head "no-nono" and instead she pulls out a festive bow toe for which Sammy is very grateful ... Luna laughs then she opens the dor and Sammy hops out noticing all the kids at the bridge dressed as bunnies ... Luna lifts her paw up, Sammy too, and Blows a HUGE kiss to Mr Charles, HAPPY EASTER!!! ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Good Morning Charles, Handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and little Bob. Just stopping by with fresh coffee and Granny's homemade cinnamon rolls. I hope all is well out your way. It is raining here today but suppose to be warm and sunny for the weekend.. Have a great Day.

Hello Cupcake and Xander. Now you two stay in the yard. I know how you all want to explore what might be on the other side of the fence but your safest place is in your yard with your Dad who loves you so much.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Dearest Charles, I just read your scary story about Xander sitting by the road! Thank Goddess he knew to not leave the curb.

Your story about his "meanness" cracked me up. I always told the cowboys that Tippy would invite someone into my vehicle and ask them if they "wanted some cameras?" and then he would say "want my mother?" He would draw the line at me but we would get such a laugh out of what a "non-guard dog" he was.

Dear Charles,

First, my condolences for your loss as well.  The story of how you and Sammy "found" each other was amazing.

I wanted to let you know that I was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM.  Every one of my previous 7 dogs prior to Colton Ash was a stray.  They are all buried in a pet cemetary outside of Albuquerque (The Albuquerque Pet Cemetary).  Back in the year 2000, I was battling to keep the cemetary open as the current owner had failed to pay taxes on the property.  I left for graduate school and am not sure of the status of that site.  I'm not sure I can handle knowing the answer (they were talking about auctioning off the land and developing it).  We had Colton Ash cremated and just got his ashes back yesterday.  Beauty from ashes.

Anyway, again....thank you for posting on Colton Ash's site.  I just wanted to say "hello" to another Santa Fean.

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob and of course sweet Cupcake and Xander. Oh my Gosh Charles, I can just imagine the memories of Sammy just flooding your mind when you saw Xander at the side of the road. I am sure Sammy was watching over his brother Xander. I am happy Xander is safe and back home with you.I certainly hear you "loud and clear" on humans misunderstanding the 'Bullies".

We have been encountering similar problems here at the shelter for the past few days  as we have a gang of men and equipement sandbagging the road in front of the shelter.Needless to say Lawrence has been here with ALL five of his "Bullies" and spending the day here.'Ha-Ha". I will write you all about it later.

Thankyou for the coffee and I can imagine your thoughts are on Xander today. I know all will work out with mail and all.

Have a good day. Sending hugs all around .

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

mr charles people get it set in their head and clump certain types together. it is wrong. but people do that. do not get mad laugh it off at how lame they are.

let me share mine. had same situation only with butler. she chased him into the street as a kitten. well she attach herself to the screen door to hiss and growl at him. he said he too was a bit concerned for his safety. i told him get use to it she's not going to like him period. that she can not break down the screen door. so we semi worked together and he became use to it. she always attach herself to the screen door , hiss and really give him a bad time until she left. but he became use to it and say "hello butler" as he approached the mailbox.

ignorance is just that mr charles....maybe you can show him how loving xander is and maybe xander can be an example at how loving some can be. maybe this man will see that and view pitbulls in a better light.

p.s. thank you for coffee

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by with coffee and cookies. We are still above water here but keeping watch on the river. It is cooler here today which helps some and the river looks like it has gone down some. I certainly hope it keeps going that way.

How is the smoke situation over your way? I certainly hope they can get that under control real soon. It must be hard to spend much time outdoors with all that smoke around.

I will keep positive thoughts that they soon get things under control with the fires and the flooding. Take care.

Sending hugs all around.

Sammy was such a great poser for pics!  My students and I checked it out today and they thought he was adorable!  You are right.  Zeke was special to me and the kids and does show us signs.  Today the kids went around the classroom collecting the hair off his bed and toys so that they would have something to keep of his.  Thank you again for your kind words about Zeke.
