HI Charles and gang,
It almost seems like spring is here, then...it is gone! Today is one of those beautiful days that spring should be like. It is sunny and cool and wonderful. Tomorow the rin and gloom is to return for another week. I hope things are looking up your way.
Thank you for checking in on us. As Princess' 4th memorial day draws closer I feel my heart strings tighten and a sting in my eye. I still miss her so much. I had forgotten that Sammy's angel day was so close to Princess' though a year later. The were almost the same age too.
I am keeping an eye on Casidy's fund but it does not seem to be growing which saddens me. Let's keep hoping for a miracle in some form or another. Take care Charles ((()))

Thank you so much for visiting Smoke on her birthday. After reading about your son Sammy, I can see you understand grief and also love. I cryed so hard reading your tribute to Sammy. We never stop loving and missing them. But I promise you, we will be with them again. They are waiting for us. It's our job to get there! I love the story of how you two met. I'm glad you had 15 years with him. I had my girls Chelsea 12 years and Smoke for 24 years. I miss them every day and look forward to when we'll be reunited. Thank you for sharing your story of Sammy and the gang. It helps to hear from others who understand. God bless and keep you...

Hi Charles, Cupcake, Xander and of course Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.
Just wanted to stop by and say Hello and hope all is well out your way as I have not seen you around Critters. I hope spring has sprung out your way as it certainly has here. The media is saying we will have flooding due to the large amount of snow around. I have never saw so much snow as this past winter. I have been busy bringing all that i can carry upstairs just in case of basement flooding. I certainly hope they are wrong.My living room and family room look like a furniture store now. Ha-Ha. There is alot of water everywhere but it does seem like it is running away so far. Some of the side roads are under water in the country but the highways are above the water so far. Anyway i guess we will have to deal with whatever we get.
Take care and know that you were thought of.
Sending hugs all around.

You were so lucky to have Sammy for 15 wonderful years, and he was so lucky you rescued him that day on the road.

Thank you for your kind words of sympathy in my loss of Ursula. I do miss her so much. Sammy is such a beautiful boy. I am so sorry for your loss.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Bob M., Gabby, Cupcake and Zander,
Thanks for visiting. As I was making the rounds this morning I thought..."I need to stop in to see Sammy and the gang!" You must have been listening.
I contacted Janelle again about getting a brick for Princess. I do not see any new information about Cassidy so I will take that as a good sign.
I was a lovely bright morning here which has now turned to gray but the morning perked up my spirit. Kit and I played ball whie Bailey wandered the field. I must get to work while the "kids" are napping. Just thibnk 3 more days to Spring.
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY

Thank you Charles for remembering my Joey. Even though we have not met, we share a common bond of the loss of our beloved family members. My pain is still there but I try to think on the good, the many memories and many years our Joey was with us. Of course today is especially hared. Going to go buy a plant, a special colorful plant, to plant by his burial site. This way when I look out my kitchen window, I see bright color and remember the richness Joey added to our lives. And Sammy, you big Love, give kisses to Joey for me..I can see them loving one another right now.

Hi Charles and precious fur kids, just wanted to stop in and say hello and hope you are doing well. It's been warming up some in our area too, but have had winds and rain the past few days. Can't wait for the warmer sunny weather to get here... I know Juji certainly perks up more when it's nicer outside.
I was looking over your wonderful page for Sammy's 2011 birthday and saw that beautiful quote... "When things to wrong and life turns rough and no one is thinking of me, I close my eyes, open my heart... you're the angel that I see." I LOVE that... how true those words.
Hope you have a very Happy St. Patrick's Day, Charles. Sending hugs to you and all the fur kids!!!!

The first thing I want to do is thank you for remembering my Cy Guy on his anniversary. My coputer crashed on the 23 of Feb, and I just got it back last night around 5 pm. So much to catch up on. Your a real cutie Sammy, and I know a real joy to your dad. We take them into our hears and homes, and then that awful day comes when we have to say goodbye. Memories are good, but the real thing is so much better. So, once agin, ThankYou for your kind thoughts.

Good Morning Charles, Handsome boy, Sammy, Gabby and Bob and of course precious Cupcake and Xander.
Stopping by with fresh coffee and Granny's homemade cinnamon rolls. Yes Granny never quits baking. It seems like she won't be happy until we all gain some pounds. Ha-Ha. The fur kids here at the shelter certainly know granny and are always waiting for their cookies or whatever treats she offers them, alot I no doubt don't know about. Ha-Ha. It looks as if spring has sprung around here as there is water everywhere and of course many dirty paws. Classes are going great and I am loving everyone of them.
Yes I believe Samantha knows there are soft ice-cream stores in the city as well as she knows that she will no doubt get to walk there and get a sundae. Ha-Ha.
Have a good day and thankyou for stopping by with your kind words as always.
Sending Hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi Charles and family,
I just left a detailed guest book enety which apparently had some forbidden words in it so it was sucked into the review void. I hope it will make it to you but if not one of the things I told you was I made my contribution to Cassisdy's treatment fund.
Hugs to you all.
03-12-2011 4:44 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess, From:
Hi Charles, Sammy, Bob M., Gabby, Cupcake and Zander,
We got in from our trip across the mountains after midnight last night. We now have a second opinion and a detailed treatment plan for our rescue boy Kit. Hopefully it will offer him some relief.
I wanted to let you know that I have contributed to Cassidy's treatment fund and made note that it was your plea that brought in my meager donation. Having just spent several hundred dollars o my own vet bills I did not have much to send but even small donations can add up.
I just visited Pasado's site and updated myself on things there. Cruelty never seems to end so whatever we can do everywhere has to help some.
I hope you and the kids are all well. Your continuing freindship is a blessing.
03-11-2011 1:03 PM -- By: Lauvern, From:
Hi Charles, Cupcake and Xander and of course Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.
I hope all is well out your way. We are getting rain today. Maybe that will help melt some of the snow. My kids and the shelter kids are truely enjoying the outdoors for the last few days. They don't want to come indoors when it is meal time or bed time. Of course Samantha won't come in until everyone else is in as she has to make sure all are in and safe.She certainly owns up to being the mascot"boss" of the shelter.Ha-Ha.
Granny and I had a laugh last night as we were calling all the furkids in for the night. They all came "some needed more convincing then others" but as we got them all in their kennels, and Tyson and Toby "my boys" were in my car ready to go home, I asked Granny where Samantha was. She said she didn't know.Of course we both got worried but as we went back outside there she was sitting next to Tyson in the back seat of my car. I guess she decided she wanted to come home with us . Ha-Ha. Of course like always, she got her way and came home with us for the night and we all did walk over to the Dairy Queen for soft ice_cream, but she was happy to see granny this morning when we all got back to the shelter and of course she had to check things out all over the shelter and granny's house to make sure all went okay while she went on a sleep over. Ha-Ha.
I am off to classes now. Have a grand weekend.
Sending hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at the shelter.

What a beautiful message, thank you so much!
I too read Sammy's entire site, how wonderful and beautiful it is. Sammy and you were very lucky to have found each other as was I and Little Guy.
It is wonderful it is for the both of us that we can continue that love, you with Cupcake and Xander and me with Joy. When we first adopted her, it was the time of the Presidential Election and we had named her Hillary for the first few days, only three days and she had given us so much happiness and love, we renamed her to Joy because thats what she was and she has given us complete joy for almost three years now, I just love and adore her so much. I know you know the feeling because I see the pictures of your dogs, we both know the "feeling".
Again, thanks for the wonderful message, you, Sammy, Cupcake and Zander are in my thoughts and I know Sammy and LG are friends and watching over all of us.
Jackie & "Joy"

Once a dog has entwined himself round your heart
he is not only yours for life, but you are his.
When he is gone, his place is forever sacred.
Other dogs are just as precious
but they all have their allotted spot in your
affections kept for them or their memory.
A heaven without one's dogs
would not be the heaven we hoped for.
A dog is always man's best friend.

Have a great weekend, Charles. We're moving one load to Oklahoma and working on the house. All the grandchildren are going with me. Pray. :-) Pat

Hi Charles, thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers during this sad time for us. Thank you most of all for bringing us to Critters.com! It has been very cathartic reading everyone's stories and sites, seeing the pictures, bawling my eyes out. It is comforting knowing Meagan is not alone and has a lot of playmates. I love your site. I just want to reach in and give woozles to Sammy. Your pics are wonderful. LOTS of hugs to you and your furbabies Cupcake & Xander!!
I finally added pictures and some pages to Meagan's site. I have a lot more words to add, but it is a start. Hope you have a great rest of your week. Love, Jennifer & Meagan

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob and Cupcake and Xander.
Thankyou for stopping by and for your kind words as always. We have been having spring like weather here so of course many dirty paws to wash. Ha-Ha. It is suppose to be getting cold by the weekend again. It certainly is a mixed up winter/spring this year.
I am certainly enjoying my classes even though they do take up any extra time I might have had. I have to keep thinking and knowing many furbabies will benefit from the time I am putting into learning and that makes it all worth it to me.
I hope all is well with you and Cupcake and Xander . I am sure you are also washing dirty paws as well. Ha-Ha.
Sending hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi Charles... Left you a post, but it went to review. It should be here in a day or two. Thinking of you and "the kids" and hope you are doing well. Best Wishes, Skye
03-07-2011 2:11 AM -- By: Skye, From:
Hi Charles.... Thanks so much for stopping by. It is always nice to hear from you. I hope you and "the kids" are doing well. We have been enjoying some warmer weather here lately and so the trees are starting to bud, the perennials are already growing, and Spring flowers like daffodils have started to bloom. I even have a bunch of tadpoles in my little pond because the frogs all started mating as soon as we got some warm Spring-like days in February. But today, I awoke to snowflakes the size of half-dollars coming down in droves! I knew Old Man Winter was not done with us yet! -- not this soon anyway. But that's okay as I am not anxious for all the summer yardwork -- I am simply getting too old to take care of my huge property and all its upkeep. I would much rather spend my time walking my dog at the Lake and enjoying nature, or playing with either one of my furkids and enjoying them. Well, thanks again for thinking of us and for stopping by. I actually think of you often, as our local shelter sadly has a constant flow of beautiful pitties going thru its doors, often with a poor outcome. How I wish the southeast would implement an aggressive spay and neuter policy like you see in the northeast and then maybe we would not see so many unwanted animals senselessly going to the Rainbow Bridge simply because they are just dumped in shelters that have no room for them all. One can only hope that someday mankind will do better by them. Well, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I hope you have a great week. Hugs to all of your precious furkids.
Take Care, Skye

Dear Charles, I've been thinking about New Mexico a lot lately. The season is almost here and Tip and I would be loading up and heading out. I wish we had known one another when I lived there. Tip and Sammy could have met one another....two dignified gentlemen. :-)
It is sunny here today. Warm. We will go to the creek later. Pearl is gaining weight and has become a "housecat". Lita is outside with her little coat on. She gets cool if she stays in the shade.
I'm getting my vintage clothing line ready to photograph. My granddaughter is going to model for me. I even have two jackets that I bought in Santa Fe a lifetime ago. I'll let you know when everything is up and online......xoxox Pat, Pearl, Mikee, Timmee, Lita and Clementine. Give everyone a big hug from us......maybe throw in an extra snack!! :-)
