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.

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.

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.

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

03-09-2011 5:38 AM -- By: Jennifer & Meagan,  From: Lubbock, Texas  

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!  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.


03-07-2011 2:15 AM -- By: Skye,  From:  

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!! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by to remember my Cindy on her special day. It means so much to have the support of my critters family.



03-04-2011 11:47 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  


Good Morning Charles,Cupcake, Xander and of course precious Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. I hope all is well out your way. It feels like spring is in the air around here as we have water running everywhere today. There sure is alot of snow to melt first though. I will certainly be happy when spring finally arrives. I am loving classes and am looking forward to being done and putting to use what I have learnt. Needless to say there are many furbabies needing my help in learning and i will be happy to teach them what some  humans didn't bother to do.

Take care and have a grand weekend.I am off to classes now.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's Shelter.

Dear Charles, I hope you are well tonight....maybe a touch of spring is around you.......

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring , summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a freind.
If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, Spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter Spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend

Pat and all the beasties

Thank you for your recent comment and visit to Tasha's page. I am in the process of adding "video" photos of Tasha to her page as I process them. I discovered on Windows Movie Maker that you can pause a video at any given point and then click a "snapshot" of that image. I'm discovering so many classic photo moments of Tasha in her videos so I will most probably be adding new ones as they come along. Thanks again for your warm wishes.

My Very Best Wishes Always

Dear Charles, Sammy, Bob M, Cupcake and Xander,

It is amazing how the chores add when when you are away for even a little while. We have returned from vacation and I am all ready for a nap! We had a good time though the weather prevented as much hiking and swimming as we normally like to do when gone. That did allow for a bit more rest and relaxation than usual so it was good all the way around. Thanks so much for checking in on us. I hope all is well with you and that a wonderful spring is just around the corner for us all.

03-02-2011 10:23 AM -- By: Forest,  From: Texas

Thank you for visiting my sweet Baby Doll's memorial.  My heart still aches for her.  It has only been almost a month since her passing and it seems like just yesterday.  She gave me 16 wonderful loving years.  I am sorry to hear of your Sammy but they are running around and enjoying the beautiful Rainbow Bridge.  My Baby Doll is there with her Missy Bear, Mommy Kitty, Tiger Oliver & Mickey.    Thank you again for stopping by and visiting.  blowing kisses to your sweet Sammy

Thank you Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob for visiting us.  We aren't one here much any longer.  Been trying to keep up on the Eagle Cams and working on pictures to try to update our blog.  Will try to do better though.  Thanks again for stopping by.

Good Morning Charles, Sammy, Gabby,Bob and Cupcake and Xander.

Stopping by with some fresh hot coffee and Granny's homemade Cinnamon rolls. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as always. I am really enjoying classes as they seem to get more interesting by the day. We are now bringing fur babies with us so of course that makes it more interesting. I have many to choose from as I take ones from the shelter with me. Doris and I have a laugh every day as when i decide which one to take each day and put their leash on, Samantha and My Tyson and Toby stand their waiting for their leashes as they all want to go with me.LOL. They all will have their turns coming for different classes with me but for now i am taking ones that need the obedience training. Samantha, Tyson and Toby already have had their obedience training, not that they ALWAYS act like they have, ha-ha. At times they have selective hearing and only hear what they want to. ha-ha. Of course they are all so precious to me so  they get away with alot as I know if i get serious and demand something to be done, they will do it.

I am off to classes. Have a grand day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi, Charles. Sorta nice weather here. :-) I bring you this writing tonight.......xoxo Pat

Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth. 

Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself. 
Hold on to what you must do, 
Even if it's a long way from here. 
Hold on to your life, 
Even if it's easier to let go. 
Hold on to my hand, 
Even if I've gone away from you.

Wow, Charles Padilla is a common name! I don't think I can figure out which one is you! I think I am the only Laurie Hanan on Facebook. My profile photo has a pink background, and my two youngest kids are with me in the photo.
