Remembering Sammy today on his 3-year Angel Day -

Charles, though today is sure to be full of memories of your handsome angel, Sammy, I hope those memories will bring more smiles than tears . . . more joy than sadness . . . more peace than distress - this is what Sammy wants for you, my friend, as his star shines so bright at that Rainbow Bridge! 

Sending special and warm thoughts your way -

Stopping by to honor and remember precious Sammy on his 3rd Angel-versary.
Dear Sweet Sammy -- May you feel the love that surrounds you today on your Angel Day, not only by all of your wonderful friends at the Rainbow Bridge, but also by those whose lives you touched while on earth (especially your Dad) who will always love and remember you and keep you forever in their hearts.

Stopping by to honor that beautiful boy Sammy on his third year in the heavens  Oh, Sammy, I juts know your day will be so special and filled with so much love, joy and friendship. You are such a good boy!  I have to admit your Dad's third year Angel page just brought tears to my eyes, good tears. I love it,  and I love the song. Your a very lucky and well derserved boy to have had such a great friend! Here is to you, Sammy, enjoy your day, I just know you will!  Send some extra love down to your Dad, Xander and Cupcake on this bright, special day! God bless you!

 There is many pets in heaven that stroll the fields of gold,

one boy in particular the angels do have a hold.
His eyes are crystal brown his head strong and lean,
one of the handsomest boys the skies had ever seen.
With a bark so deep and low and a walk one of a kind,
friends trot behind him their angel friend to find,
One of the purest hearts to walk the paths filled with so much pride,
with butterflies beside his head and Jesus by his side.
For this fine strong boy had a master that taught him all he knew,
and he brought his wisdom to the heavens where his soul forever grew.
You couldn't fine a more genuine friend as big as he may be,
than this big brown young man that goes by the name Sammy.

04-06-2011 7:18 PM -- By: Dad,  From: Santa Fe, New Mexico  

Well my beloved son Sammy ... I wanted to be the first to wish you a Happy Three-Year Angelversary tomorrow.  I don't know if it will be happy for me .. but I know you are healthy and having a grand time with all your friends.

Sammy, I created you a Three-Year Angelversary page and I hope you like it ... I surely do.  Sammy, you will always and forever have a large part of my heart with you .. and you know why my son.

Please send me some signs that you are doing fine and always with me, Cupcake and Xander.  You know, son, Cupcake and Xander each have a "little bit of you" in themselves ... and I know it was truly YOU who brought them to me .. and for that .. I am so thankful.

Please give me strength, son, tomorrow to make it through one of the saddest days of my life, because the memories of that day three years ago will flood my memory and I want to be strong for you, son.

Remember, I LOVE YOU forever and ever .. and the day I leave this earth .. it is YOU and all my other furkids to be waiting for me across the Rainbow Bridge.   Your loving dad ....

Hi Charles.... Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are doing well.  It is hard to believe that Sammy & Molly are coming up on their 3rd Angel-versaries already, isn't it?  I sort of understand your struggle in creating the anniversary page, as I have been telling myself for a month now that I need to get working on Molly's page, yet I still have not started it.  I think part of me might be avoiding it.
You mentioned the weather.... We have had some really beautiful, warm Spring-like days over the past few weeks, and the Spring flower bulbs have bloomed and already have come and gone.  Now the lilacs are in bloom and the trees are getting their leaves.  The weeds, of course, were in full swing basically from the moment the snow melted!  Uuugghhh!  There are already tadpoles in the pond, and I think the chipmunk that lives near the front door has had her babies.  Lately we have had some really horrible and scary wind storms (and a few thunderstorms) with tornado warnings -- which just adds to the "Spring clean-up" which needs to be done.  Someday I hope to live on a smaller, more manageable property -- afterall, I am not getting any younger!
Well, as Sammy's anniversary draws near, just know that you will be in my thoughts.  I know Sammy appreciates the all love that you gave to him, and that you continue to carry in your heart.  Take good care of yourself.  Best wishes always, Skye

Dearest Charles, Smammy, Gabby and Bob M,

Thank you so much for visiting my son Stephen's kitty Jolean on her angel day today. Sadly so many of the critters family has abandoned this site for FB which means many grief stricken people do not have the joy of a guest book entry on important days.

The sun is out briefly here before more rain comes in. It has been a very soggy start to spring though the kids do not seem to mind when it is time for walks I guess thayt is why we have rain coats!

Thank you again for your gift of friendship. I have a surprise for you and Sammy on Thursday.

04-05-2011 7:40 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Good early Morning Charles and kids. Sending  you some coffee and Granny's homemade Cinnamon rolls this morning as when I got here EARLY this morning, I knew Granny was baking as the aroma  was in the air before I had  even gotten out of the car.She even had a pot of coffee brewing. Ha-Ha. What would I ever do without Granny? Of course I was also met at the driveway with "muddy feet" as Samantha greeeted me at my car. There is never a dull moment around here. Ha-Ha.

Oh handsome boy , Sammy... It will soon be your special day.I know all the bridge kids will be there,no doubt having a ball running and playing and celebrating YOUR Day with you.

Have a good day.Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.


04-04-2011 6:18 PM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Hi Charles and Kids. Thankyou for the much needed coffee around here as somedays we don't get a chance to even make coffee.I just looked at Sammy's three year Angelversary page. Just beautiful and I know it comes straight from your heart. I am sure there will be a big celebration at RB on Sammy's special day. Remember he is healthy again and no doubt having alot of fun running with all the other fur babies.I know these marker days can be hard but we have to remember they are always with us and one day we will see them again. Knowing this is what keeps me going. I know Luke is cancer free now and all my kids that have left me are healthy again and I know they are together as I am sure Luke rounded them all up as he used to do while with me.

The weather here has been real nice over the weekend so of course I had to spend my days outside as all the furbabies "mine" as well as the shelter kids wanted to stay outdoors.

My classes are going great and I continue to enjoy them. If all goes well I should be finished them by the end of May. There still is alot of hard work involved BUT I will do it.

I hope all is well out your way and remember to stay strong on Thursday.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

04-03-2011 8:50 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,

Thank you for your uplifting and kind words of care and support. Although it has been 4 years now somedays it seems just a day or two ago that Princess was still here. Having her birthday and angel day within a week is emotionally wrenching and makes for a very difficult 7 days. Without the support of my critters family it would be almost unbearable. Thank you again. (((())))

04-03-2011 1:57 PM -- By: jules,  From:  

mr charles thank you for coffee. sammy's 3 year page is just beautiful. butler's 3 year was on the 28th as you know. and yes fell apart. what can share is did butler with mom. sammy loved you very much my friend. that bond can not ever be broken. signs will be there that he still watching over you. it is up to you to acknowledge them so he knows you still feel him. that bond can not be broken this we know mr charles. have trust in that. love you all

04-02-2011 9:38 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Hi Charles, Luna looks on with Sammy, watching over you and your crew ... Luna whispers to the wind, mom doesn't need a special day to cry, sometimes without knowing it she passes past a part of time that we shared and remembers, and the tears well up in her eyes till she can hardly see ... but then through her sadness she also has a glasness because she was so loved by me. So although we remember the days before, and the new ones shers without us ... wen the gentle winds blow leaves in a spirial where we used to walk, she pictures me there chasing each one, only to let them free and chase them again ... with tears running down her face she said to tell you ... Love is the most precious gift we share, and true love will always be .. from this lifetime to the next ... we will meet again.

Luna sits back and watches the waves gently rush to the shore, as they take back little pieces of sand with them and makes a rustling sound upon the shore line ... as she looks at the beautiful reflection the night sky has upon the ripples and sighs ... we are all things beautiful, and we each live with in ... in your heart! Sending all our love alwyas, Luna & her mom Nadine

04-02-2011 2:17 PM -- By: Carole and son Seville,  From:  

Hello Charles and kids,

Thank you so much for takng the time to stop by on my "son's" first year away from home. I miss him so much. He was a chatter-box and I reallty miss his talking all the time. I can still hear him like it was yesterday. I know you understand completely through all your losses, and with your beautiful son's angelversary approaching. Sammy's third year picture is so beautiful! It hardly seems possible that it's days away from Sammy's third year.

It's odd how life works. I found a little Chihuahua boy this morning, and had to call the humane society to come and get him. My little Chihuahua boy Buster left this world April 24th of last year. Finding a little boy that looks just like Buster on Seville's angelversary is the strangest happening. I've been crying all morning. I'm hurting over Seville, and then I felt almost like I was holding Buster again...and felt like I had to let him go again. I told the animal control lady that picked him up that, if I didn't already have four dogs, I'd put a hold on him so I could adopt him if no one claimed him. I even named him Binky.

This is going to be more of an emotional day than I ever expected. Hugs again and I am sure all your beautiful kids are watching over you and all our babies are happy and healthy, and frolicking thorugh th most beautiful meadows they've ever seen. 

I have ot been on Critters like I want due to both illness and working overtime. Not a moment goes by that I go without thinking about all my wonderful Critters family that have helped me through some of the toughest times of my life. We love you all. Blessings.

Hi Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for the coffee and your kind words as always. Thankyou for the congrats as well. I am happy the test is over with now as the one we wrote yesterday was to determine wether or not we continue classes or not. A mark of 75% was necesary to be able to continue classes which knowing that made me somewhat nervous but after some sleepless nights,I was able to do it. I can stay in classes and move on and achieve what I set out to do. YESSSS!  Thankyou for all of your support and encouragement always.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

If you feel a trickster nearby it is undoubtedly Sammy reaching out a paw to let you know that he is always thinking of you like you think of him

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and the bullies

Stopping by to say hello and thank you for visiting and for all your kind and helpful words. I don't visit critters as often as I probably should. It still brings a tear when I visit Ginger. Getting warmer here "40's & 50 during the day" 2010 wasn't a good year for my furry friends. I hope 2011 isn't as bad but, 2 of my kitties don't look very well. I hope they make it for a long time still. Hope all is going well for you and yours. Hug those pitbulls for me. Please keep visiting us, Kent, Ginger, Ringo, Runt, Sugar, Coco, Cinnamon and the kitties, wow that's a lot, hope to here from you soon

I went into review.  Hmmmm.  Probably just a word I used.  If you go into edit the guestbook, you can probably find my post.  Hugs, Vicki

03-31-2011 8:04 PM -- By: Vicki,  From: Cuddles and Misty Rose  

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob:  I'm really glad you liked the picture.   You know how much I love doing them, just have a little trouble deciding what to do.  Hopw all is well with you.  Our weather here has been chilly and rainy today.  Expecting upper 50s and 60s the rest of the week  Yeah Yeah! 

Sammy's Angelversary is just around the corner and Misty's is coming the 17th.  I really hate April as that is the month that all went you know where when it came to Misty.  Easter, my birthday and then her leaving to the bridge the next day.  Kind of a sad month for me.

Good Morning Charles, handsome sammy, gabby and little Bob M and of course sweet Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for the coffee yesterday as i sure need it around here. I am writing my first test this morning. I have been up half the night studying.  Anyway granny has just made some fresh cinamon rolls so am sending you some as well as some fresh hot coffee.

Have a good day, I will let you know if I got the 100% on the test as that is what I am aiming for. I have to get this done so that the furbabies will benefit.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

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

I am just sick about a recent pittie case I read about thanks to Dawn. I have it posted on critters FB. Since Patrick's care is taken care of I have made another donation in his name to Almost Home for Cassidy.

I am not sure Charles how much more of this kind of thing I can stand to see. My heart just aches.

All I can do is reach out, send hugs and the paltry sums I can. How I wish for a windfall. Until then I will work to the best of my ability to make as much as I can so I can donte, donate, donate.


03-30-2011 8:33 AM -- By: Corrie and Max,  From: Canada  

Dear Charles and Kids,

Thank you so much for visiting Max on his 2 year Angelversary and for your kind words. It means so much when someone visits, I know I should visit everyone more often then I do and yet once again I am playing catch-up with my thank-yous. Please take care and Hugs from Corrie and Max
