Thank you so much for checking in and your kind words.  Life has been extremly difficult without my Abbey.  We don't have kids, so she was our little girl who went everywhere and did everything with us.  I have a hard time thinking about her and even looking at her pictures on here.  Things are slowly getting better with time, but her loss is extremly hard for both of us to cope with and comprehend.  She truly was our best friend.  You and Sammy's story is so precious, and I am so sorry he is no longer here with us.  At least you can know he lived a long and full life with you.  I really appreciate everyone's support on here.  Seeing my little angel lifeless is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life, and I can only hope things will progressively get better as time goes on.  Again thank you for your kind words, I am sure Sammy and Abbey are together waiting for us to make our trip to them :)

 Hi Charles, sorry it's been awhile...things have just been really busy.  We are not sure what the deal is with Roscoe, everything turned out negative but he has definitely slowed down a lot in just the last 6-months or so.  He still has some type of issue where he trembles and stumbles around like he's drunk for a minute or two...and then everything is back to normal.  Anyways, hope Cupcake and Xander are doing well, and thanks again for always thinking of me and Marley

Thank you so much for your loving thoughts.  I forgot to mention to you that the song "Wind Beneath my Wings" is one of my favorites.  I cannot believe you found Sammy with that song playing.  It was destiny!  Thanks for being part of my critter family and your kind words of my sweet, sweet Jasper.  Yes, visit often, as I will.  Happy thoughts of Sammy and Jasper et al having a picnic among the beautiful trees and flowers!


10-05-2010 10:01 AM -- By: Sarah,  From: Hudson, OH  

Oh your Sammy is so sweet.  Your story brought me to tears!  I know the love you two shared must have been as special as to what I shared with Jasper.  Our special canine buddies cannot be replaced and the bond is none such as with anyone else.  I know they came into our lives for a reason, to give us that special gift that we will carry for the rest of our lives.  God Bless Sammy, Jasper and all whom wait for us.  Until then, live freely and joyfully and without pain.  Thank you for your kind message.

Good Morning Charles and kids. It looks like it is my turn to stop by with fresh hot coffee and fresh danish. Yes them Balloon festivals are beautiful. They hold them here occasionally and when they do, i always go to see them. All the different sizes,shapes and colors are just beautiful. "Just like Rainbow Bridge", I am sue.The weather here has just been beautiful so i have been spending all of my time outdoors as i certainly did not get much outdoor time this past summer as it was just too too hot for my likeing. I am making up for that now as are all the fur kids. I managed to get the fence painted at home over the weekrnd and now its back to raking the shelter grounds. You never realize how many trees are around till the fall and the raking of leaves begins. Ha-Ha.

Have a great day. Sending hugs all around.

Granny says Hello. She is into the cookie dough right now as usual.  I think she is trying to fatten us all up for the winter and of course Samantha and Tyson are sitting here waiting to sample the first batch out of the oven. Ha-Ha.

Thank you very much for stopping by Maui's site.  Life has been very hectic and I haven't been at critters for awhile.  However, with the Birthday here, I am reminded to ground myself some.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her.  I markered over her appt on my fridge (it was 6 days before she passed) - Maui at 10:15 on Saturday.  I miss her very much.  Thanks again.

I hope all is well with you and yours :-)

Hello sweet Sammy and Charles and Critters.  Just wanted to drop by and say "HELLO" and hope you are having a great weekend.  All is well here so far, but the night isn't over yet.  My husband is a stinker at times but hopefully he will behave tonight.  The weather is changing but it is also getting dark earlier and that is not good.  Mommie feeds dogs in the evening and she now has to leave the house at 6:30 p.m. to feed them and get back before dark.  They are the neighbor's dogs and they don't get enough to eat.  So she feeds them.  Lucky puppies.  Love and hugs from Mommie and Me

Peeking in on our Critters friends and angels to wish you a good weekend and let you know you are in our heart always - 

Your angels smile down on you,

All things you say, all things you do.

10-02-2010 3:22 PM -- By: Renee,  From: Minnesota  

Stopped by for just awhile,
long enough to see your smile.

The pain of missing a loved one is never easy, and it never goes away.  The only comfort we take, is knowing that our blessed ones are not alone; they have each other as we have each other - to comfort and to ease the loneliness.

Blessings to you and your family (and Sammy) always... you've got a friend in the great beyond and on earth.  Very happy to have met you.

Hello Charles, Sammy, Xander, Cupcake, Gabby, and Bob M. (Hope we didn't omit anyone.. ;) Dollie and I Really appreciate you all continuing to remember us. We don't get around Critters nearly as much as we used to or would like to. I only have a blackberry and it takes us Forever to type a message. Its Very nice weather right now here in South Carolina and my little boi and I, Zeb, are really enjoying it. Charles, you seem to be a very special man, the way you continue to offer words of support to so many and pay homage to your boy, Sammy. Even after two to three years, its still tough, isn't it? I still shed tears for Dollie every day. I'm sure that will never change. But that's okay. I'm a grown man. I'm not ashamed! Charles, we send our very best to you and your babies. We hope that we'll always stay in touch. Someone, like you, that Really understands, we consider a genuine friends. Blessings, Dollie and daddy

Dear Charles, my gang wanted to let me know that Bob is sending you a fact he sent it through me.

Dear Dad: What an awesome place!   I know that you know where I am but I wanted to let you know how much fun I'm having up here. Sammy takes total care of me. I don't want for anything. Sammy is sorta the " New Mexico patriarch" here  and he and Tippy hang out a lot because Tippy lived in NM for 10 years.

I've met so many good-looking ladies.......some really beautiful kitties. We play almost all the time. Sammy found us a huge ball of yarn and we're always getting tangled up in it. :-)

I know that you're entering a photo of me and Cupcake in a contest. We'll win. How could we not? Best looking cat and pit bull in Santa Fe!! :-) I love you, Dad. We'll all here and when you come, we'll all get "happy feet" and dance for hours with you!

thank you for remembering my sweet Shadow.  It has been difficult to be without him....we still miss him so~  So to have others celebrate him and show such compassion is amazing!  Your Sammy sounds so special and wonderful...You can tell how much you loved him and I am sure without a doubt he loved you too!  Can't tell you what these little notes mean to our family.  Blessings, Vikki-Shadow's Mom

Good Morning Charles and kids.  Thankyou for the compliment on my new page. Thankyou for coffee as it was certainly needed this morning. We have been raking and "unraking"by the babies "Ha-Ha" since 6:00 am.  The weather man is calling for rain tomorrow so we are going to try and beat the rain. If we don't ,that doesn't matter,at least the babies are having fun. They all are certainly enjoying this weather as the summer was just too hot and humid for them to enjoy.

Take  care and have a fun filled weekend.

Sending hugs all around  from all at Luke's shelter.

Hello handsome boy Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. I am sure you are all busy watching over your Dad and Cupcake and Xander.

We love you.

Well, I was just wondering how you were>? Thank you for visiting our page after you read what i wrote in the forum! Yes, i RELAND AND VISITNG Ellie was just awesome, we had a great time, and then , after going up to this hill, and loooking, seeing 2 rainbows, like the one's I had seen before I left for Ireland, was amazing! It was just so beautiful, and unusual, because I have not seen a rainbowin a very long time, then to see that, well, it was just incredible, it was just like Davinci telling me he's there, looking at me, and sending me a signal of his love for me, it brought tears to my eyes, I'm hoping that you, and cupcake, Xander and , angels Sammy, Bob are all doing well!!Im thinking of you Charles, xox ttus- Natalie, and my gang!!

 Hi Charles - thanks for your visit, it's always good to hear from you! Glad all is well out your way. We are doing good here as well and enjoying the cooler weather. Just getting some work done around the house, have some painting to do outdoors before the rainy, cold weather comes. Juji is great and is SO silly sometimes, she really makes us laugh with her antics. Big hugs to you and Xander and Cupcake, and also to your dear angels, Sammy, Gabby and Bob. Take care and have a great week. Gina

Thank You for your kindness. I'm am so sorry for your loss of Sammy. I can tell from your memorial to him, how much he was loved. Hopefully Sammy and my Lil Bit are keeping all the others in Doggie Heaven in line.

Once again Thank You, and your memorial to Sammy is wonderful.

Dear Charles and Sammy,

So nice to hear from you earlier on, thank you for visiting us.  I am doing much better, thank goodness.  I hope you are doing well Charles.  We know Sammy is.  Big hugs to all of you, and love and kisses to Sammy boy!

Hi Charles... Thanks for stopping by.  Glad to hear that your weather has cooled off.  Ours too has finally cooled down this week and we finally got a little rain too -- we were still getting temps in the low 90's just last week.  They say it has been the hottest summer on record in my neck of the woods.  Right now, I am scrambling to get this huge property prepared for winter in case we get hit with bad snow again.  I am making sure as many trees and bushes are trimmed down and cleared now to help prevent as much breakage as possible.  A big job!  I saw the flyer for the Pit Bull Rumble and Cupcake sure sounds like quite a celebrity!  I hope you all have a wonderful time and I hope you have a great turn out for the event.  It's great now that Xander can also stand right beside his sister as an example of another pit bull rescue who has become a wonderful, loving companion.  I hope you and your kids have lots of fun. 
Best wishes to You, Cupcake, & Xander for a wonderful week -- and big hugs to all your precious fur-angels.  Take Care, Skye

Ahh Charles, Luna blows him a kiss ... today is Toby's Birthday and we're gonn ahave a party. She opens her pocket planner and makes a note, all week on vacation, tomorrow visit Sammy's dad for autumn fun! Hugs, Luna

09-27-2010 1:46 PM -- By: Lauvern ,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids.  Thankyou for stopping by. We had a great weekend and the weather was beautiful. Toby and Tyson enjoyed the trip also. Of course it takes longer to get anywhere with them as we have to make many stops,especially for Tyson as he has to get some running in and wear off some of his energy  before he can settle down again. Ha-Ha. Now the raking of leaves begins, which i just love doing. All the fur kids get involved and we all have alot of fun. I hope this weekend is nice as we have to get things put away and fixed up for the winter. I guess you already have done. How is your new computer working? I am sure it is great.

Take care.

Sending hugs all around.

It's amazing how we feel a pet rescues us as much as we rescue them. You two found one another for a reason and it sounds like you had a wonderful 15 years ago. One day you will see Sammy again and you won't have to worry about losing him ever again.

I will keep you and Sammy in my prayers.
