Good Morning Charles and family,

What a lovely surprise to come home to your GB post. We had a wonderful, though short trip and have come home to happy and healthy kids. The weather was perfect during our stay and we had lovely walks and lots of rest. Now the work has piled up and I will have to get back to it.

Princess is now public again and I hope she will be without incident. I had hoped to connect with Corrie or even Lauvern but I found out they are both much farther west. Maybe another time.

I hope you, Xander and Cupcake are well and that the weather has improved for you. I cannot wait to see how you like Sammy's cross stictch and I am watching with glee as Princess comes to life again!

Thank you again for your continuing freindship through our dear children.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little Bob m. and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou so much for all of your kind posts,coffee and treats Too. I am so sorry I am late in replying but as you know, i have been quite busy catching up with things around the shelter. Always know that my friends here at Critters are never far from my thoughts,even if I don't get a chance to post as often as I would like. Thankyou for reading and your compliment on my new page. It does come straight from the heart.

I am happy to hear that you are now able to enjoy the outdoors without all that smoke around. I am sure Cupcake and Xander are enjoying the outdoors as well.

The two  new furkids are doing great. It almost seems like they knew each other before and maybe were dropped off at the same time as they seem to stay together. I have not heard from anyone looking for them  as of yet even though I posted signs everywhere . Which is fine as they are well looked after and get along with all the others at the shelter.Of course Samantha is right along side of them always. She takes them out on runs and shows them the property . Ha-Ha. Of course she always comes when she is called and they follow her.


I am now instructing 6 to 8 classes daily which keeps me busy but I love doing it as it certainly makes a difference in the obedience of the fur kids which makes me feel good about what I do.

I hope all is well out your way. we are still getting  a few of the extreme hot and humid days but are getting breaks in between them which makes it great,

Sending hugs all around as Always.

Lauvern and the crew at Luke's shelter.....

Hi Charles...
I wanted to stop by to say "hi" and let you know I was thinking of you and "the kids".  I hope your wildfires have finally died down.  I am surprised wildfires have not been a real big problem yet in my area this summer, as they usually are, especially with all the tourists who come here (as they can often add to the problem).  I'm sure it has probably been unbearably hot out in your neck of the woods like it is most everywhere else.  It sure has been oppressively hot and humid here this summer.  My poor dog, Teddy, would probably love to go for a walk, but it has been way too hot for both of us to do that.  I cannot even leave him out in his fenced play yard for very long for fear that he might overheat.  Anyway, I hope you, Cupcake, & Xander have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.  Stay Cool.  Best wishes always.

Thank you so very much for visiting My Delaney's page and commenting.  Your message made my, and Delaney's heart, smile!

I've read  about your son, Sammy.  What a wonderful life and spirit!  I know  Sammy, Gabby and Bob M will show Delaney the ropes...and the chewies..and the toys.  :D

Hi Charles,

I just added a few new pictures of Andy to Max's site.  He and Barney are doing great .

God bless.....

Hi Charles and Fur kids. I see I received all of your posts for August, this morning. i guess they must have went to review. Thankyou for stopping by with coffee and treats. This week has been hectic as I try to catch up with things.There are times I have forgotten to take a coffee break.  Ha-Ha. Its a good thing I love doing what I do and can only hope that I am making a difference.

The two new boys are doing great and yes Samantha is right in there showing them the ropes"good and bad" Ha-Ha. They certainly were hungry kids when they first came here BUT that is all behind them now.They already know where to go to get their treats as well as their meals. I think Samantha showed them the treat cupboard. Ha-Ha. They both have such a nice personality, I don't know why anyone would not want them. I am now advertising wherever I can to see if anyone will claim them but I have my doubts as no one called the humane society looking for them which is the normal place to call if someone loses a pet or finds one . Anyway they are safe and definately not hungry and maybe even getting a bit spoiled so all is good. Ha-Ha. They have been checked by the vet.The boxer had a bit of a rash on his ears but nothing serious. It looks like mosquito bites and because he was no doubt scrathing his ears, they have become infected. He is on antibiotics now.

Have a good day and thankyou again for all of your kind posts.

Sending hugs all around .

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter "including the two knew kids which i have not named yet as I don't want to confuse them in case that the owners do come forward and claim them"

Wishing my wonderful friends Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Xander and Cupcake a beautiful day!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us. I am saddened by the fact I cannot receive posts. Only 3 critters "friends" wanted the password which is okay but I am sorry I cannot hear from potential new freinds when I post on their sepcial days.  I will make Princess public again when we return from our trip and hope for the best. I  am so looking forward to the break though I will miss the kids.

Charles, I know exactly what you mean about the bills. After Kit's trip to the emergency clinic 10 days ago, he had his regular checkup yesterday. What a relief that there were no surprises there! No matter, Kit and Bailey are my kids and my kids get what they need when they need it! Makes me sad to think of the many out there who do not even get the love and affectuon they deserve let alone the food and medical care. They vet said Kit was the most fit golden she had ever seen. I do watch their weight carefully and of course, they eat the best I can find.  Sometimes my hubby envies what they have in their dinner bowls

Thank yo again for stopping by.(((())))

Good Tuesday Morning Charles and kids. Just stopping by with coffee before I head out to the shelter and try and get caught up with work. After being away for two weeks, I am behind with classes,etc. I am instructing six classes today. The shelter is full with two extra puppies in my office. Needless to say, it will be a busy but fun day.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Dear Charles and famly,

Wishing you the joys of a new week AND a new month! I hope it brings better weather and times for you and the kids.  We will take a short break the end of the week to travel to Canada for a few days for my husbands birthday. We are working very hard this summert and will enjoy the short respite.  The kids will be happy with their regular live in caretaker who always takes them out into the forest or to the beach. I am never truly relaxed without them with me but I know they are at home and have good care. Next winter wil be their vacation again in the San Juans.

As always, I think of you and your family of furbabies past and present.

Hi Charles & son Sammy---Gabby and Bob M., too,

Not on here too much these days but thought I would get back to you and say Hi!

 WHAT a SWELTERING summer we are in and prob. much worse for you! Oh well, we will be longing for this when the snow flies(and may it NOT fly like last year!)

Hope all is well with your fur-babes.

Maddie's mom, Sherri

Morning Charles, as Luna looks over and winks at Sammy, a party, we're always having parties, and they both snicker ... as they look to the patio, there blowing in the breeze are the curtains form the cabana, and set among all the little tables is a flickering light, surrounded by fresh blooms ... may you always see the light of your ways, and feel the love that surrounds each and every one of us ... we know how you think of us still, and that light will grow brighter in time ... that is how we will find one another again. Luna stands by the shore with Sammy tossing pennies in to the deep blue sea in hopes that the parents at home will know ... they are always thinking of us and they will always be watching! ((hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Good Sunday Morning Charles and kids. . Thankyou for the welcome back home. The shelter kids were all excited when they heard my voice as well as I was almost knocked over by Samantha when I pulled into the driveway of the shelter.HA-HA. I had brought back some souveniers for everyone as well as special treats for the fur kids so my arms were full carrying all this stuff in. When Samantha saw my car pull into the driveway, she came running at top speed to greet me and had to put her brakes on when she got to me and I had to remind her to keep her feet down. Ha-Ha.

Enjoy your Sunday with the kids.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Dearest Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. I thought I'd leave you a litte note on your memorial .. just to tell you .. though I don't have to keep telling you as you already know .. that I LOVE and MISS YOU .. each of you so very much.

Each day of my life .. you are always within my heart and soul .. as you gave me so much pleasure and made me so very proud to be your dad. 

I ask you to always watch over your sister Cupcake and brother Xander while I am at work .. as they need constant guidance and, Sammy, always let them know you are always with them.  Thank you son.

I often "day-dream" of when it is my turn to leave this world .. that each of you will be waiting for me across that beautiful Rainbow Bridge .. and to greet me .. never to be apart ever again.

I LOVE YOU Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

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

I am back home now and although I had a wonderful  relaxing vacation ,it certainly is nice to be back home. I have not been to the shelter yet but will be going there shortly as I missed all there. We have a new shelter kid there which I can hardly wait to see.

Thankyou so much for visiting my kids and your kindness as always not only to me but all at Luke's shelter also. I truely appreciate that. Thankyou ever so much for remembering my little Kc on his Birthday.It means alot to me, to know my furbabies have not been forgotten as I will never forget any of them.

Although I have not even unpacked  the RV , I am off to the shelter first as I want to see everyone there , I have missed them all.

Have a great weekend and Thankyou again for all of your kindness always.

Sending hugs all around.
