Morning Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. YES Spring would be nice. My favorite temp is about 75! Went to my sisters for the weekend, although it was colder than I'm used to we had a nice time but I sure do enjoy the "warmer weather better", especially when my apt at home is kept that way ... but with things you get the heat dries you out too ... so off we went to Westchester where they have animals and trees and a deck ... the snow on Monday was optional and a nice surprise because enough fo the girls to play in but not enough to make driving hard and by the time I went home most of the roads were cleared already. 

Many days I sit and day dream, I picture Luna and all the thibgs she would do and so easily she warmed my heart and put a smile on my face ... I love Lily and Opal too, but my little Luna was somehting special, she capurted my heart in a moment and has it still ... I know you undertsand ... and although somedauys my eyes tear my heart is still beaming with the love we shared, I can feel it with me most days, that is when Iknow she is thinking of me too...and all her little friends and their families, and you too Charles!!! Blwoing mighty ksises on the quickness of a winter breeze, smiling upon you like only our angels can ... sending our thoughts and love always, Luna, Nadine, Lily and Opal

Hi Charles , Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as always. Our weather here is about as mixed up as yours is. Its winter one day and spring the next and back to winter now. My classes are going great and I am certainly loving it. Although it takes up all of my free time that I might have had, I know it will be well worth it when I am done. I think it will help with getting the shelter kids their forever loving homes sooner after they have been trained all of the basics. If you can believe it, some of the fur babies that come into the shelter don't know any training at all. They don't understand a word we say. The older ones are a shade harder to train and retrain but we will do it. We are now working on how to stop excessive barking for no reason. The fur baby I am taking to classes with me today has been here for over a month and I am sure he barks 24/7. It didn't matter what we tried, we have not been able to stop it. I will see what the suggestions at classes are today. The reason he was turned into us by his previous owner was just that he was an excessive barker and the neighbors were complaining. about the noise so he could not keep him. Anyway will see what happens today. If i have to take him home with me tonight so that I can be with him 24/7, i will do it. I just want to know the proper way to do that. He is such a sweet dog ,but has that one problem. We will work on it and I know he will get a forever loving home .I am off to classes now.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Thank You for wishing my baby Romeo a Happy Birthday.

Hi Charles! I am so thankful that you know the words to express at the right time. I do appreciate your kindness through our babies passing. You mentioned that Sammy sends signs that he is still around. I am finding that you are soooo right. I had a dream about my friend giving me a puppy ( a pit) and in the midst of the dream Patches' face came through as if he were standing right next to me. I broke down in my dream in tears of joy and realized I was really crying aloud for all to hear. I laughed afterward commenting that Patches is still around. I do hope that Sammy and Patches are having the frolick of their lives. I truly thunk they are. Take care and thanks again for your gift of empathy... AJ

Hi, Sammy!! I hope you didn't get roped in to help clean up after Fayeroe's party. I understand that you worked really  hard on keeping everyone's plate's full. Faye had a blast! Tippy had to get on to her about talking with her mouth full!! She gets so carried away and excited at parties.

Charles, it is a beautiful day and the wind is coming out of the south. All of my windchimes are going crazy. I love to hear them so all doors and windows are open. I REALLY need to do yardwork today. Spring always puts a "spring" into our steps, doesn't it?  Have a beautiful day and know that here in Texas, we're thinking of you and the kids. xoxo Pat and beasties.

It's been a while since I have been by to look at Sammy and read your thoughts and memories. After stopping I'm glad I did. This winter hasen't left us with too much free time. Seems like we are clearing snow every day. Stay warm - Stay Healthy - And as always hold your memory of Sammy close to your heart and he will always be with you.

 Thank you Charles for your kind words on Comet's angelversary.  We have a new dog, but still miss our girl.

02-18-2011 11:12 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kindness as always. Classes are going great and I am learning alot  that I didn't know before. There are many KIND tricks for training fur babies that don't always want to listen. The training I am taking has nothing but kindness in ways of training. I will admit When i first started ,I thought they were going to TRY and teach me to not be as kind as i have always been with my own furbabies as well as the ones that have come to the shelter in my basic training. I thought , WEll if they suggest that I have to change that, I will just Quit as I can not be mean to a furbaby. To my surprise I have learnt that even the aggressive ones will learn alot quicker just by showing them love and letting them know that you are the leader. I have not tried to work with one that needs the help of a proffesional trainor as of yet ,as I have been leaving that up to Lawrence. Right now, i will stay with basics. One day maybe , I will venture on .MAYBE. HA_HA.

I am off to classes now. Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Dear Charles, everytime I hear "Wing Beneath my Wings", I think of you and Sammy. And I go back to the day that you stopped for him on the highway.    Most people would not have stopped but you did. And what an important day that was for you and Sammy!!!

Thank you so much for coming by Fayeroe's page. I hope you saw her new is still rough around the edges. I did it last night. Couldn't sleep.

I've dreaded this day for weeks and weeks but with friends like  you, I will make  it    a very special day. you and your beasties...Pat

02-17-2011 11:13 AM -- By: Luna & her mom,  From:  

Hi Charles and Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. It's liek our angels, you know you don't always have to visit their page to know they live with you, in side of you, will forever be a part of you ... Luna smiles, as she twists and shouts. "Yes!!!".  Some times not many words need be spoken to know we're on the same page. What a day it musthave been for you, I'm sorry, I know the feeling, but like you it does bring me hope knowing she is among a terrific group of angels at the bridge, and knowing them as we do we know how much fun they are having ... and wait for us, they are still with us in a way, you don't always have to see them to know that they are there. ((Hugs)) our friends, Luna, her mom and ... the girls.

Kisses for your babies at home, I know how much they love you!

Dear Charles, I am so sorry that I forgot Sammy's birthday. I spent the day worrying about Pearl and TeddyJack. I am sorry. I know that Belle was making fudge yesterday because her total life dream was to have a piece of chocolate. I bet she fixed Sammy a big plate of it and a tall glass of ice-cold milk. I hope your day is sunny in SF...the skies are bluer there than any other place I've been. Kiss your babies for me..xoxo Pat

Hi Charles, Doris wanted me to post this to Sammy as she still can't get used to the computer here at the shelter. They were quite busy all day today and she could not get anyone to type this till I got here. She says she is too old to learn new computers. Ha.

From Granny and Samantha and all at Luke's  shelter.Wishing Sammy a Happy Birthday and a Happy Valentine's Day to you , Cupcake and Xander. I am sorry  that I have not been posting  recently as when i do go home and can use my prehistoric computer, I am too tired to do much else then go to bed ,as 5:00 am comes early. I pray that you and the furkids are keeping well. I am looking forward to some warmer weather to be able to get outside with all the shelter kids and let them have fun outside.Its been a long winter for some of them. 
Take care of yourself and know that I do see your kind posts to us all here at Luke's shelter. Thankyou for your kindness always.


Granny Doris and Samantha.
