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

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.

Good Morning Charles ,Handsome Sammy, Gabby and Bob M and of course sweet Cupcake and Xander.

What a beautiful mastiff girl you went out of your way to try and capture. I know she will find her forever loving home after Janelle nurses her back to health. I want to Thankyou personally for caring about these precious furbabies. The world needs many more people who care for these creatures . Many think its JUST a dog/cat. That is not in my vocabulary. These babies all have hearts and feelings as I am sure you would agree. So from the bottom of my heart, Thankyou for caring.

It looks like it will be a nice day here today. Still alot of water around to run off but other then that bright and sunny day.

Have a good day. I am off to classes now and enjoying them.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

HI Charles and gang,

It almost seems like spring is here, 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.


03-17-2011 4:21 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

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.


03-17-2011 11:31 AM -- By: Gail Ambrose,  From: Texas  

 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!!!!

I just want to thank you for the Birthday Wishes for Misti. I hope you and Misti have found each other and you are very busy playing together.
