Thanks so much for your visit. Always nice to hear from you. Talk about terrible weather! It looked like we were having a hot/humid, 'S.C.-type' summer...really MUCH too hot & humid, but then it changed...first the heavy rain & elec. storms(like down south) then the cooler air and overcast sky, and some drizzle nearly each day. Yesterday was nice.....fairly dry, and nice sun. Today began nice, and I SHOULD have had my coffee out on the back deck- because the weather is NOW disolving FAST. Oh, well, WHAT is IT they say of N.E.? 'IF you do NOT like the weather...just WAIT...'

Take care with those fires......

Maddie's mom, Sherri

Hi Charles... Thanks for stopping by.  I left you a long posting, but it went to review.  I must have accidentally used a "flagged" word by mistake.  So anyway, hopefully you should get it within 24 hours. Have a good night.

Hi Charles.... Thank you for stopping by.  Interestingly, I actually thought of you today, as I received an email from the ASPCA today and noticed that they have a new line of T-shirts in their store to raise money and one says, "Don't Believe The Bull, Adopt A Pit".  It comes in men's & women's sizes and I think they may possibly be 20% off thru 6/16 (tomorrow) using a special code, not sure.  If interested, just go their site at aspca (dot) org -- (sorry, I don't think the post will go thru if I write out a web address) -- and then just click on ASPCA Store (no subheading), and you will see the special message tees.
Sorry to hear about the wildfires in your area, as I know how devastating they can be.  We get them frequently here too, but we usually get them closer to the end of Summer and throughout the Fall and sometimes even into the Winter, often due to people obsessing over burning leaves, and doing so carelessly.  Also, some get started here by lightning & people tossing lit cigarettes in the woods when conditions are dry.  Since it is mountainous, sometimes they can only try to dump water on some of the wildfires by helicopter, which feels like a lot trying to put out a house fire with a water balloon. Often hundreds of acres are lost before it gets under control, which is sad.  Hope your situation out there gets better real soon.  It must be terribly difficult on the wildlife too.  Hope you & your furkids are doing well and are enjoying the summer. Thanks again for stopping by.  Take Care.

  Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and Cupcake and Xander!! Things are going well here, we took Juji out camping and canoeing this weekend and she did so well in the canoe! Didn't go for an unexpected swim like I was worried about lol. Her behavior in camp was not quite so good, but she did have lots of distractions!! Sorry to hear about the wild fires in your area, that is so sad. Luckily it has been so rainy here, no forest fires yet, thank goodness. But we usually see them when we get those summer lightening storms. I hope they get it contained soon! That smoke can be so terrible. Hope you and the fur kids are doing well otherwise. Sending hugs to all... Gina, Saada and Juji.

Thanks Charles for wishing Hansel a happy Angelversary - We are still so sad, but your note brought us comfort - thanks again :)

 Thank you so much for your kind words. A lot of people don't understand the feelings you can have for a pet and here at this site i have found that everyone shares those feelings for their beloved pets. Baby was so special to us, and meant more to me personally than just a dog. She was like a child, and I am still so heartbroken over her loss. Your precious Sammy was beautiful, and the story of him touched my heart. God bless your family, and thanks again for the kind words.

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for your post and kind words as always. I have not been on Critters too often as my home seems to be the 'stopover' for friends and family traveling everywhere during the summer. LOL. Needless to say, i have alot of company during the summer vacation time.All is well at the shelter except a deer had gotten into the shelter grounds which is all fenced off with heavy duty fencing and of course when Samantha and my Tyson saw this 'strange" to them ,animal in the yard, they had to give it a chase.LOL After not listening to me when i called them back and i had to go after them with the quad and pick them up, they were both given "time out" for not coming when i called. LOL. Their time out was being seperated in different rooms of the shelter building with a bit of scolding for not listening to me. Of course at the time it was suppose to be a all day "time out" BUT ended up being about a hour.They both have a way of making me feel guilty so i give in .Anyway granny and i went out to see where the opening was where the deer was able to get in. We found it after much time of looking. There is a camp ground adjacent to the property and it looks as though whoever was camped there had backed the camper into the fence and knocked down the post which allowed the deer to get in. Although i have one of the volunteers drive around daily with the quad and check the fencing, that was either missed or had just happened yesterday. Anyway it is fixed now and all is good. I believe the deer went out the same way it came in as i don't know where it went but i don't see it around and granny did not see it last night. Hopefully it is on the other side of the now fixed fence.LOL. I have too say,although deer can move fast, Samantha and Tyson both stayed right with it. LOL. It was not funny at the time as i didn't want the kids to get on the road following that deer as i didn't know which way it was going to go. But i can now laugh at the whole thing. LOL. When i told Byron about the episode, he laughed and said there isn't any animal going to out run a Boxer and  a  P i t b u l l . Ha-Ha-Ha.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M.

Thanks for always thinking of us, and that's the one good thing about friends, you don't always have to see them to know that they are there ... kinds of like our little ones ... We don't have to see them to know they are here too!

I read your post about Cupcake seeing the animal in the yard ... they never forget either. All our love, and many hugs, Nadine and Luna

Hi Charles-

Stopping by to honor your beautiful boy Bob Macaroni on his first year in the heavens. I love the picture of him hugging his sister Cupcake, priceless really. You gave him the best 11 months of friendship any pet could ask for. He looks like a good little boy. I'm sure his day was spent with Sammy by his side and Gabby on the other as well as all his friends he met, including my boy at the bridge. I bet it was a grand day filled with so much sunshine and laughs. I just know he is watching over you, Cupcake & Xander daily with a big smile & love in his heart.  For Bob M-

(W Girt)

The Lord looked down upon His world, created fresh and new,
With soaring, shining mountain tops and gleaming seas of blue.
The lordly lions roaming free with tigers golden bright,
All very grand, magnificent, but somehow, not quite right.
He stroked His beard and mused awhile and thought of this and that,
'All these are far too big,' he said, 'I'll make a smaller cat;
To edge towards the fire at night, out of the chilly wind,
An independent animal, but needing human kind;
With fur so soft and warm to touch, but brimming full of guile,
With pansy-faced wee kittens to make the children smile.'
All that was very long ago, but still the cat's with us,
Aloof and condescending, but loving all the fuss.
You'll never, ever own a cat, as all cat lovers know,
He'll curl himself around your heart and never let you go.

Remembering Bob M on his first angel day.  I hope the memories of Bob make you smile.
