Good Morning Charles and Kids. Thankyou so much for stopping by and your kind words to us all. I know all here at the Shelter appreciate it as do I. They all look at Luke's pages and see all the posts and many have commented on yout kindness. Thankyou . 

Granny and Kim say Hello and they hope all is well with you. Lawrence is still away but should be back before long. I spoke with him on the weekend and all is going in our favour out in Eastern Canada. We can always count on Lawrence to get things done. Samantha is now playing catch with Taz, Tyson and Toby. Of course Kim is out there throwing the ball .LOL.

The pet fare this weekend turned out GREAT.  We have 9 dogs and 7 cats spoken for which are pending adoption after all qualifications have been met. All looks good so far.

Thankyou again for your kindness and of course the coffee as it is always needed around here. Have a good Day.

Sending hugs all around.

Hello precious Sammy , Gabby and little Bob m. We love you.

Hello Happy Sammy and Dad:  Charles I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend with your pups.  We had a beautiful day here at Rainbow Bridge.  The Angels made us a holiday feast, and it was sooo good.  I thought Sammy was going to eat all the hot dogs, but he saved a few.  There was plenty of food to go around.  Sammy, if you want to watch the pie eating contest the gals are having, it is Sept. 13th in the Church parking lot, around 1:30 p.m. Central Time.  It is going to be lots of fun and there may be some gals without dates and you might get to lick the pie off their pretty little faces. bol  Doesn't that sound like fun?  Anyway Charles, thanks so much for being our friend.  We love and appreciate you so much.  Ruth and Sparkman

Hi Charles.... Thanks for stopping by.  Always nice to hear from you.  I can relate to the roof repairs, as I have been having to re-do the drywall and repaint the walls in a house owned by my parents after TWO different NEW roofs leaked (long story!).  It has taken forever to finally get the leak to stop, which meant I had to get a mold inspector in too just to be safe -- so it has been a real hassle but it is a repair that I am glad to finally be getting done.  My dog has severe allergies & is nervous around strange men, and so I have had to have him stay at my parent's house for the past week or so while inspectors and drywallers were here.  So, I really miss him.  It has been difficult enough getting all the work done with the cat under foot!  And yes I agree -- I don't know where the summer went to -- it did just fly by in what seemed like a blink of an eye.  I hope you, Cupcake, & Xander have a great Labor Day.  Best Wishes Always to You and to all of your precious furkids.

Good Morning Charles and kids. Just wanted to say Hi and wish you a beautiful sunny Labor Day. I hope all is well with you.  It looks like it will be a beautiful day here today. The trees have not started to turn colors yet but it won't be long. Fall is my favourite time of year as it is not too hot as well as i think it is so beautiful with all the different colors around and all the leaves dancing around in the wind. Then comes the raking which i enjoy and the kids get out there and dig away in the piles of leaves, LOL. We all have fun together.

Sending hugs all around.

Thank you very much Charles for your message when our beloved Kobe went over to Rainbow Bridge a week and almost two days ago today. Your comforting words  really touched our grieving heart. From reading your wonderful tribute to Sammy  and also to other children who passed on like our Kobe we can tell you are such a caring person. Sammy was so blessed to have you in his life.

God bless you for being there for all of us in our sorrow . Most of all for loving all your kids.

My Beautiful kids .. Sammy, Gabby and Bob M ... just wanted to post to you on this Labor Day .. and what a week it has been .. a week of "labor work" for your dad here at home.  Also, today is your dad's brother's "Angel Day" .. so give him lots of puppy kisses and tell him they are from his brother and that I miss him very much.

Always know that each of you is so loved and so missed by me .. but you already know that.  Always keep watch over your sister Cupcake and brother Xander .. as they love to get into some mischief at times .. but .. they surely have put the sparkle back into your daddy's eyes after you left .. but .. you will never, ever be forgotten.

Sending many hugs and kisses to you up above.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob, and Cupcake and Xander!! Thanks for stopping by to visit. Hope you are having a nice Labor Day weekend. We are enjoying the weekend with nicer weather, at least it's starting to cool down a bit, but we're not getting fall colors yet. Saw your new page with new pictures of Cupcake and Xander, love those photos! Cupcake is sure a beauty, and Xander a very handsome boy. I know Sammy is certainly watching over them and so proud! Hope you are all doing well and sending hugs your way, Gina, Saada and Juji

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for the coffee as it was appreciated as always. I hope you got caught up with your yard work and i am sure Cupcake and Xander were alot of help.

We are holding a pet fare at the shelter all through the long weekend in hopes that we have the same success as we did last year on the Labour Day weekend.. The weather looks like it will be very agreeable which should bring many people out. Granny, Kim and myself will be making mini doughnuts all day today which Granny had started on yesterday with her sampler "Samantha" helping out. Today we have my two boys helping Samantha out in the sampleing dept. Ha_Ha. Of course we will have to let the shelter kids sample them also. They are all enjoying the day outside today as i have twelve high school students volunteering today and will be more during the weekend, which certainly helps me a great deal.

Have a fun filled long weekend.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Hi Sammy, looks like we're gonna have a party ... today is Dale's BD!!! Although his page is not visible we hold him in our hearts always. Luna wrote a little tale on her page ... forever and always, till we meet again! 

Summer is almost over and the cool breeze will be rushing in to shake up a few leaves and send them spinning ... know you are alwaysin our thoughts. Hugs, Luna & Nadine

Good Morning,

Charles thank you for  taking the time to check in on me, I was starting to feel better after the loss of Sissy and Baby Cat and then the sudden and unexpected loss of Princess has left me feeling broken once again. My husband stayed home with me a few days and picked up the grandbaby that we had until last night so she kept me BUSY! She's 16mths old and very busy all the time. LOL!  How have you been? How are the bull babies? Hope you are getting some much cooler weather we are do for a bit of a cool front on Friday I can't wait it's been a long hot summer for everyone. I hope all is well with you and yours. Sending Hugs and Much Love, Kelly

09-01-2010 9:07 PM -- By: Carole and son Buster,  From: my aching heart  

Hello Charles and kids. I am so sorry I took so long to visit you all. Thank you so much for caring and taking the time to stop by and check in on us.

I was also heart-broken to hear about The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Milan's beautiful Pitbull Daddy. I've followed his story and watch his shows every Friday night for years. Daddy's passing at 14 years old broke my heart. Cesar has another beautiful boy Junior who has stepped up as leader of the huge "Milan" pack. He's a gorgeous young lad!

So much has happened since Buster left us. My brother's beautiful Rottie mix girl Cara joined our angels at 16 1/2 very blessed years. They had a wonderful life together along with Cara's sister Simba who left us May of last year. Then, my ex-hsband passed away August 20th. We were divorced in 1982, but remained friends throughout the years. My heart is broken once again. Truthfully, so far 2010 has been a tough year, to say the very least. I just keep pushing forward.

I read through your handsome son's memorial again and looked at all of the lovely pictures. All your angels are so very beautiful!! Clearly, Cupcake and Xander are healthy and happy with their dad. What beautiful kids you have Charles. Sammy's memorial is beautiful, and I can feel the love flowing throughout every word written.

Sammy, Bob Mac and Gabby...I think about you often precious ones. Keep watching over your dad, Cupcake and Xander k? Many big hugs to you all. Carole, a very proud mom.

Hi Charles and kids.... Thankyou for stopping by and your kindness as always.

We have been having intermittent  internet service as they have been upgrading services in the past few days. It looks like they are done now, as all the heavy machinery,diggers,etc. are gone. At least i hope they are done.ha-ha.

I am sure you will enjoy your time off as you spend it with Cupcake and Xander as i am sure they will be of alot of help also as you do roof repairs,etc. ha-ha. Take time to relax also.

Hello Sammy, Gabby and little Bob, I know you are keeping close watch over your sister and brother and of course your Dad. We love you.

Sending hugs all around.

It wouldn't let me write in the other post.  How strange is that?

Dear Sweet Sammy, Gabby and Bob M and Dad:

Thanks so much for being our friends.  Hey guys did you hear about the pie eating contest the girls are having sometime soon.  It should be lots of fun.  I will send you the time and place as soon as we decide.  There are four contestants so far.  The girls are Dakota, Pepsi, Ladybug and Penny, they are ready to eat pie.  I love for my wife, Ladybug to eat pie because she gets it all around her mouth and then I get to lick it off.  She is such a sweet wife, but she CAN'T COOK worth a darn.  So we eat out a whole lot.  Sammy you are such a good looking guy.  My  Mommie understands how people can be so uncaring when it comes to loosing one of us.  Most of her friends would say "JUST GO GET ANOTHER, HE WAS JUST A DOG"~~~  It would really  make Mommie mad.  If it wasn't for Rainbow Bridge and the people who posted on Sparkman's Site, I don't know what Mommie would have done.  They were so supportive and under-standing.  The best $25.00 she ever spent she says.  But then Critters came along, and the people on it were really nice too.  And then DoggySpace !   Poor Mom, there just isn't enough time in the day for her because she has to take care of Dad almost 24/7.  But she loves all the doggies and kitties and all the people on all the sites.  Have a wonderful night Charles.  Sammy, come to breakfast in the morning and meet the gang.  It will be at the Hungry Bear Breakfast Buffet at 8:30 a.m.    See you there or else. Hugs Sparkman and mom, Ruth
