Hi Charles and kids. I wanted to stop by and thankyou for your visits and kind words to me and all at the shelter always. Thankyou for all of your support for the past almost three years. Your kindness is and will always be appreciated by not only me but ALL  here  at Luke's shelter also.

May the Blessings of Christmas be yours now and throughout the New Year.  We know our angels will be with us throughout the holidays, maybe not in body but their spirits will always  be with us and watching over us.

All the Best in 2011!

Hi Charles thank you for stopping by. I see by your post that you have gotten snow big time now. We have the cold but so far only a dusting of snow but it is so cold it is still here so only a matter of time. It has been a little hectic here as our one girl Heidi got into a fight with Abby and ripped open her belly when I went to pick Abby up to seperate them so a trip to the vet,multiple stiches and $300.00 later she is doing fine and on the mend. I do not know what started it but we had to watch them for a week as Heidi was going after her for over a week but they have now made up and are friends again. I wish you a Merry Christmas also and hope you and family have a safe and happy holiday season. The pictures of Xander and Cupcake are so sweet and show the love they have for you ( we love to spoil them and they deserve it) Your babies will watch over you as mine watch over me and I know the tears and smiles will be with us as we think of them during the holidays.

Dearest Kids .. Sammy, Gabby and Bob M ... just wanted to leave you a post to tell you how much your dad LOVES and MISSES each of you.

We had over a foot of snow last night .. and as I shoveled this morning .. your sister Cupcake and brother Xander just ran and jumped through the snow like deer .. it was wonderful watching them.  Sammy .. remember when .. how the memories flooded my mind and my tears came down ... but ... I know they are tears of happiness for you son, because I know you are happy, healthy and with all your friends .. just remember, though, that your dad loves and misses you so very much.

Always be with us .. watch over us .. protect us .. and always guide your sister and brother.

Sending many hugs and kisses to Rainbow Bridge .. share them with your friends.  Dad

 Morning to the Padilla gang!

I was just leaving a note on Luke's page and I saw that you are an early riser too. I thought we were the only nutcases out there who got up at 4! Can't get the kiddos out for their walk, get the exercises done and all the other morning chores without getting up then.

When Princess was with us she was our alarm clock. She kept better time than any clock made. Bedtime too. If we were not at least in the bedroom by 8 she would nag us and if we still did not comply, she would WOOF, just once. After that she would go upstairs to bed, crazy humans be danged! 4AM rolls around early don't you know. I am sure that was what she thought.

Have a glorious day!

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and for the coffee and rolls. I certainly need alot of coffee as i have been getting up at 4:00 Am. All is well here . Samantha has been enjoying her car rides and coming home with me. Of course she is getting a bit spoiled but that is ok. Her and Tyson just have a grand time chasing each other around the house and yard. They are both full of energy and have to wear it off somehow. Ha-Ha. Toby "my Bulldog" does join them but can't stay with them. Ha-Ha.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Dear Charles, thank you so much for stopping by my beautiful Angel Keri Leigh's memorial site...I just read your lovely story of your precious Sammy, and I am so glad he was there to meet my little Keri, along with your Gabby and Bob M, too. Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers and thoughts. This has been so incredibly hard--it seems like the pain will never end, and that it just happened, and yet it seems like she's been gone forever from me...Please stop by again sometime...

Hugs, my friend,

I am truely sorry for the loss of your precious Sammy. I just lost my 15 year old fur baby on September 9 when I had to send him to rainbow bridge. His name was PIcky.

Picky and I spent every singl moment together, both sleeping and awake. You see, I am terminal and bedbound and Picky was my lap dog. It was as if he were my other half.

I've been noticing that the pain and grief is only growing more with passing time and I cant imagine the hurt any more worse than it is right now.

I'm sorry for your losss

God bless

Ahh, my first post went to review ... hummm....

Things in NYC are fine, a bit chilly though. Last night it was 21 2degrees out...burrr. I did go to the tree last week alone and took a few shots, but did so with my camera phone and they are a little shaky, think my hands wer cold. I posted them on F/B, my twin is coming in to town and we will be strolling 5th Ave so I will be sure to bring my camera and get a few nice shots to share. The girls, well they are not much for foot traffic, especially the little one, and they never go anyplace alone ... so carrying two will be a bit of a challenge for long distance (although one of my arms is getting stronger cause Lily is twice the size Luna was ... lol. 

I remember her strolling 5th Ave with Lunam, I can picture it in my mind as if it were yesterday, her in her new silver and grey faux fur ... oh how everyone marveled at her, and I know it wasn't the coat, it was her presence and she sure dd command one. and forget ahead amongst the foot traffic, commanding a space of her own ... So I guess I'm going to save that picture for us, our spot for now ... I do realize when I think of her a subtle  smile appears on my face and the love in my haert is still there forever growing ... one day! 

Mighty cold this eyar and I found LIly and Opal new black faux fur coats too, also posted on F/B ... seems when I took Luna out it was just me and her, and when I take the girls out ... well, we all have to participate, and you know how that cam sometimes be. 

Thinking of you and yours, knowing all the while when we think of them they know. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

12-10-2010 12:21 PM -- By: Luna & Nadine,  From:  

Hi Charles, things in NYC are nice, dry and cold ... but as long as it's not freezing rain or slush puddles we're fine! Girls hate getting their feet frozen and wet.

Ahh, the tree, I posted a few shots on F/B, although it was windy it's a tiny bit fuzzy, or maybe it was my hand shaking (took it with my camera phone, have to go back and retake one with my camera) ... and that shot of me and LUna, we'll we're just going to call it our spot and I know when whenever I think of her she knows ... the love in myheart continues to grow. Plus one is easier to carry, pick em up and put them put them in your coat, but two is a little more difficult ... Lily is bigger and all those feet ... Little Luna was a trooper, didn't mind them at all ... walked the crouds on 5th Ave in her silver and grey faux fur mink ... she will always be the light in my eye and the warmth in my soul ... she will always be my little girl, and her love ... it surrounds me still. 

Been pretty cold lately, think we got 21 degrees last night! Burrrr ... but I got LIly and Opal new coats this year, pics also posted on f/b. Take care and know when I think of my girl, I think of all her friends too.. ((Hugs)) Luna's mom Nadine

Dearest Michelle and precious Princess ... thank you for your visit.  I, too, read about Ester.  I was so saddened that her owners, though they could not afford her medical care, did not do anything for Ester.  They could have "asked" for help and I am sure they would have gotten it quickly.

I too, hope that our God has a "place" for these individuals who torture and abuse these defenseless furkids as they did to Cupcake and Xander.  I cannot understand these "vicious" people .. and they say Bullies are vicious ... Ha I say to them.

No need to apologize for "getting" all worked up .. as I do the same .. especially when it comes to furkids who need the care and love.

Sending you hugs and have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Mr. Bob,

Thanks so much for stopping by and thinking of us. When we were at Pasado we got to see Ester, the little pittie/boxer that fell off of a 12 foot wall and went untreated for weeks. Her front legs were bundled into casts but she wagged her tail at us and relished the kisses and pets she got. I can never ever understand the people who do things or allow things like this to happen to Ester or Destiny. I just hope God has a special place waiting for people who harm animals. 

Sorry, got on my soapbox when all I wanted to do was thank your for checking in on us! It is rainy and cool here but we manage to get out for walks and of course, playing ball!

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M

Thank you so much for visiting my Jaspers' site, it is really nice to hear from you.  Merry Christmas to you all as well.  I hope the season is treating you well.  You mentioned the weather, well, I live south of Cleveland and we have be inundated with the white stuff.  I don't think we have to worry about whether or not we are going to have a "White Christmas".  I give thanks this season for you and all my new friends from this site.  Without all the love and support, I don't know what I would do.  It has helped me immensely and helps to know that there are so many people who love and welcome animals into their lives as I do.   Jasper and I would like to wish you the best this holiday season and for the coming new year! 



12-10-2010 7:36 AM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Good Morning Charles and kids. Thankyou for the coffee and Bizcochito cookies. We certainly need the coffee around here to keep us warm. It is suppose to warm up this weekend but we are suppose to get more snow. Oh well, the furbabies will enjoy the warmer weather as well as the new snow falling. We now have a huge hill for tobogganing but will soon be able to have mountains if the snow continues Ha Ha.

I have a busy week ahead of me as Granny is going to visit her daughter in the west coast. She certainly deserves a break after all she does for the shelter kids. Of course Samantha will be staying with me and coming home with me daily. She loves to go for car rides so she will get alot of them as it is about a hour's drive home from the shelter.

I hope all is well out your way. Have you gotten any snow yet? I will be happy when all the hussel and bussel of the holidays is over as traveling in the city and on the highways now is just a mess. Everyone  is going someplace and shopping is almost impossible with the crowds. Anyway have a grand weekend.

Hello handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob......Sammy i keep waiting for some signs from you and Luke as to where there might be fur babies needing us. Although i hope there aren't any homeless but especially at this time of year, i worry about the ones that might be. I always count on you and Luke.

Sending hugs all around with fresh hot coffee and homemade Danish.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.
