Dear Charles: I heard a quiet scratching at my door today and when I went to see who was there, I found  a page of paper with this song on it. Tippy had scribbled a note to me and asked me if I would do something for Sammy....Sammy wants you to have this today. He loves you and misses you and he knows that he will see you again one day....we'll all be together at The Bridge with our wonderful friends....Take care, Patave I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there's no one else above you?

Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness,
Ease my troubles, that's what you do.

For the morning sun in all it's glory,
Meets the day with hope and comfort too,
You fill my life with laughter, somehow you make it better,
Ease my troubles, that's what you do.

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby, Bob and of course Cupcake and Xander. Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and Granny's Cinnamon rolls. It is another nice day today so I guess I will be spending the day outside with the fur kids. Of course Samantha will be keeping law and order as usual. Ha_Ha.

Thankyou for your posts and kindness as always.

Have a great Day.

Lauvern and all at the Shelter.

Thank you so very much for you words and viewing my Essie the Pug's page.  It means so much to know people can read her story.  Sammy's memorial is so sweet and the love shared can never be replaced.  There is no better guardian angel in heaven than the beloved pets that meant so much to us here on earth.  God Bless you,  Robin, Essie's mom.

Good Morning, Charles.....actually , it almost lunchtime here. I'll drop by later with some cheese enchildas and iced tea.

Our weather has been nuts. It got down to 46 yesterday! Today the sun is shining and it is warm. Who knows? When I lived in Pilar, I always enjoyed the quick changes. I could look down the canyon and see the storms coming and I loved that.

Take care, and your babies are in my thoughts. Thank you for being such a good friend!

Good Morning Charles, handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and Bob. Thankyou for your posts as you know I was busy and got behind with my replys. Thankyou for your kind words as always. I am happy to hear Xander is doing well. He will be out and no doubt into mischief again real soon. Ha_Ha. "Boys will be Boys".

Thankyou for the encouragement on my test yesterday as I wrote to you, i was able to Ace this one.  I have one more test on the 20th and then my final on the 27th. I will then be finished with classes and hopefully be licensed to instruct. I will work hard on studying till then and hope for the best.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Dear Charles,

I am sorry to see that Xander has injured himself. I was thinking of him as I read your message about the nasty delivery person. I hope his recovery is swfit and uneventful and that he stays home when he is safe and loved. Hugs to you and all of your kids.

My Beautiful Kids .. Sammy, Gabby and Bob M .. I thought I'd post you a little message .. just to tell you how much I Love and Miss You .. but you already know that I do.

I come to ask you to please watch over Xander and Cupcake .. especially Xander .. as you know, he really cut himself and has some stitches on his left shoulder .. but he is healing well.  He hates being in the crate .. remember that crate, Sammy, where I used to sleep with you the last few weeks of your life ... it surely brought memories back to me when I brought the crate out from the shed for Xander to be in while I am at work.

Please keep your ever-watchful eye on him and let him know it will be fine for him to be in there .. and he'll be out soon .. running and playing like he used too ... the typical "little boy" that he is.

Love to kids .. from me, Cupcake and Xander.

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.

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

Thank you all for remembering my birthday.  It means a lot to my mom to know that you think of me on this very special day.  Little Nate

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.
