Hi my Dear Friend and Super Sweet Sammy and Siblings:

I did not get on the computer at all for two days because of my husband's needs.  He doesn't realize that my critters family and doggy space keeps me sane.  I am sorry I haven't barked at you for awhile.  Snow sounds like fun - but not a lot.  Just a little amount will be fine for us.  We need rain really bad.  It is cooler and the leaves are falling and giving me the blues.  I did get an electric leaf blower at last.  Thank goodness, I couldn't handle the gas one, just to heavy for an old gal.  Hope you and the c hildren are having fun.  Don't worry about Sammy, he has fell right in with us.  He is a heck of a baseball player, everyone wants him on their team.  We are all going to breakfast in the morning and if Sammy isn't there for some reason, I KNOW WHERE HE LIVES. BOL and I will wake him up.  Luke will be there to.  We really have a blast Charles.  Thanks so much for caring.  Mommie and I think you are great and Love you.  Angel Sparkman

 Hi Charles and fur kids! It has been awhile, but I always keep all of you in my thoughts and hope everything is going well!! Your precious Cupcake and Xander are just beautiful, and I wanted to offer my congratulations on them getting into the 2011 calendar!! That is so exciting, wow... you must be a very proud dad. I had to smile when you mentioned all your leaves have fallen and the fur kids love playing in them!!! Our trees have finally started to change to those beautiful Autumn colors, hopefully I can get some good pictures before the coming rains and wind blow them all off the trees LOL. We are doing well here and Juji is so lovable and sweet, we are very blessed. I know Saada girl is watching over her, as Sammy, Gabby and Bob are watching over Cupcake and Xander. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. Take care and hugs to all. Gina

Good Morning Charles and kids. I have an early start this morning so am bringing fresh coffee and  danish for all. We have four dog  and three cat kennels empty and of course we can't have that with so many  fur babies needing  shelter, so i am on my way to the humane society to get them kennels filled. The weather here is cooling down, especially in the evenings but the days are still warm . The fur kids are enjoying the outdoors as it is cool enough to let them run around and chase each other around the yard which they could not do during the extreme heat. Of course Samantha is keeping things in line and supervising the play time as well as watching the gates to see who drives in and out. I have to say,her disposition is just perfect for the job but when someone comes to pick up one of the fur kids that they have adopted, i have to be there or she is not sure if this fur baby should be leaving the grounds or not. ha-ha. When i tell her it is ok, she s fine with that.

Sammy...I know you and Luke are watching over fur babies that may need help.  Continue to let me know in some way where i have to be and i will be there. We love you.

Have a good day. Sending hugs all around.

Hi Charles, Xander, Cupcake, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. Just sending greetings from midwest fly over country to all of you. Lost a Bully friend today 10/19/2010. We rescued her a few years ago and found her a really good home. Well the folks that we adopted her out to ran into some substantial health issues "they were slightly older but they loved her" so they found her a home in the country with a half acre privacy fenced in yard. Well long story short, she developed some kidney problems. The people were awesome they spent a lot of money trying to help her and the vet called them and said there was nothing more they could do. She was suffering and wasn't herself so they made the tough decision to put her to sleep. Her name was Sugar Cookie and she was an American Bulldog. My wife and I called her our Granddogger. Pretty sad, Cinnamon and her used to have play dates in my back yard. Give Cupcake and Xander Big bully hugs. I always do Cinnamon, Talk Later, Kent

P.S. I did add a Sugar page "need to find more photos" I love my pets

Thank you for your thoughts about Jose Girl.  I read your story and it is so like our story of sickness, helping them outside and holding them in their final hour.  I will never get over loosing my Josie who is my forever dog.  Thank you again for remembering her too.

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as always. The little Beagle is doing good and seems to be getting stronger by the minute. I don't and will NEVER understand how anyone can just drop these babies off on the highways to fend for themselves, which seems to be the case as i have called the humane society" lost and found" to see if he was reported missing but he was not. Anyway he is safe with me and i know i will find him a forever loving home. He is such a sweet and friendly little guy. He is enjoying the good food and warm, dry place to sleep and of course all of the attention he is getting from us all. He also likes Granny's cookies. Ha-Ha.The vet says he is about two years old and i am sure he WAS someone's pet as he is housebroken and knows a few commands,etc. Anyway he is their loss and will be someone else's gain after he gets stronger.

The weather here is cooling off some but we still have alot of leaves on the trees. I guess it will be back to raking after we get some winds to blow the leaves off the trees.

I hope all is well out your way.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and the gang.

Hi Charles and Handsome Sammy.  I see you visited us a couple of days ago.  Thank you.  Mom isn't on here much and now that Cuddles has a birthday coming up it will probably be mostly on his Memorial.  That's okay.  He doesn't get as many visitors as I do.  Please come see me again.  Love company.  It's really lonesome since Caliya left.

Hi Charles.... Just wanted to drop by and wish you a wonderful weekend.  I also wanted to congratulate you on Cupcake & Xander making it into the calendar (though was there really any question they'd be picked?  :)   So sorry, that congrats is a bit overdue, but I have been dealing with a sick pet and an unexpected diagnosis, so I just have been very consumed with other things.  But I did want you  to know I was very happy for you and "the kids".  Hope you have a great weekend!


10-15-2010 4:42 PM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kindness as always. I certainly needed Jules's coffee this morning along with the cornbread as i was up till after 1;00 am in the vet emergency hospital. We had a Beagle baby brought in to the shelter yesterday afternoon that was found on the highway. He seemed to be ok but as the day went on, something did not seem right,he seemed as if he was wobbley ,when i gave him some food,he seemed ok but then got sick. The vet who volunteers at the shelter checked him and said he had gotten into something and should be taken to emergency . This i did.Of course i waited for blood results etc. to come back as they were attending to this sweet baby. They found he had gotten into some pesticides. As they gave him iv's to clear his system and stabilize him,they said i could go home and leave him there but i decided i would stay with him until he was out of the woods. It was a touch and go situation for awhile there. Well all turned out good and he is back at the shelter. It was well worth my late night to see him come back with me.. He is such a sweet baby too. I don't know how long he has been without a home but he is very thin and undernourished.  After a long rest he was up and playing in his kennel as well as in my office today. I have to keep him away from other babies for now,as we don't know if he has or has not been vaccinated and the vet cannot do vaccinations till he gets stronger. Anyway that was my night and day today and i am tired but it was all well worth it as i saved one more baby.

Take care and have a great weekend.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

10-13-2010 2:59 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and all,

Thank you so much for checking in on Princess and me.  It has been a bit of a stressful time for me. My dad has been in assisted living since his stroke last year and we now know he will never be able to retun to his own home. It has been up to my husband and me to clear it out in preparation for renting. Assisted living is so expensive and my dad needs some income to help with his bills. Thinking back, I realize that his health began to deteriorate after he lost his two companions Jazzy (a great dane) and Deeter (a spitz.) My grandmother also had worse health after losin her little pomeranian.  It is so amazing how much our fur babies do for us and how little they ask in return.  It is no wonder we go to pieces when they must leave us.

Sorry to ramble. We too are enjoying the cooler crip fall air. Kit and Bailey are happier and more playful and I must admit it feels good to me too. Thank you again for your continuing support and friendship. Wishing you the best.

 Hi Charles - I can't thank you enough for visiting me and KCBear on her birthday..

KCBear was already at the bridge before I started advocating for, transporting and fostering 'pibbles' :)

They are the most misunderstood, mis-represented and most loving breed -  as you well know...

I love visiting Sammy's (& Gabby's & BobM's) site, and will make it a point to sign their guestbook more often..

I kinda strayed from 'Critter's' for awhile, as all of the anonymous messages were a bit unsettling..I'm sure they meant well, but...

I do truly thank you for remaining my & KCBear's friend, even though I have neglected to be the same in return..

Hugs to you and all of yours~
