 Dear Charles:

I wanted to stop by to let you know that I was thinking of you on this day, and I wanted to acknowledge the birthday of your precious & beautiful Sammy.  I know that your sweet boy is in good hands and that he is surrounded by lots of rambunctious playmates who keep him busy in that beautiful place beyond the Bridge, but I also know that you miss him very much.  Rest assured, he has not forgotten you either.  How very lucky Sammy was to have found you and to have spent his life being so very loved and cherished.
Thank you for your recent message.  Sorry I did not respond back, but I have been dealing with a few health set-backs and my precious little Kyleigh is not doing well at all.  Last week, I was preparing to have to send her to the Rainbow Bridge, but the vet decided to try a treatment to see if it might help her.  It has had only minimal success, but she has pulled thru before when she looked like she might not make it, even after she had already used up about 30 of her 9 lives..... but she is 15 years old now, and so I am realistic and I will not allow her to suffer.  We'll see.  As you know, it is simply the price we pay for loving these precious creatures --- and loving them (and being loved by them) is worth the cost.  Well, I do hope that you & all the "kids" are doing really well.  Just know that I'm thinking of you.
Hugs to you,

Sammy & Charles,

Bless forever handsome, dignified, loving, determined, wise, fearless, giving, devoted, caring, gracious, brave and gentle man Sammy, and Dad Charles and family, on beloved Sammy's 22nd birthday.

Sammy, I know in your official supervisory capacity at the Bridge that you are aware of the large number of angels who share your Valentine's Day birthday with you every year:  28 in all on the Critters site alone! 

Cinnamon and I are stopping by on the eve of your 22nd birthday, precious Sammy, so that we are able to mark this special day with you, and to remember your wonderful life and the love you share with your Dad Charles, today and every day.

From the beginning, Charles, after I posted Cinnie's memorial here at Critters on January 8, 2013, one day before her 14th birthday, and the first birthday she shared with your Sammy, Gabby and Bob M at the Bridge, you have been a great and generous friend.

As you know, Chares, no matter how many years go by, the devotion and love we share with unforgettable angels like your dear Sammy remains a part of who we are, just as surely as it did when he shared a home here on earth with you. 

You are so supportive of the Critters community and our angels that this will sound familiar, but I really do believe that the sharing of home, life and love with these amazing spirits, as you did with Sammy and Gabby, and Bob M for not nearly enough time, and as you do with Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, is just about the most wonderful and spiritually nourishing thing a person will ever experience here on earth. 

And then as you know, Charles, they graciously leave a little bit of themselves behind, in our hearts and memories, and allow us to cherish and love them forever, that's all. 

Bless guardian angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M; Dad Charles and family, especially beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley. this day and every day.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little BobM....... Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and warm cinnamon rolls. "not as good as Granny's" as I made them myself. HaHa. Thank you for your recent visits and kind posts as always.

Granny Doris and Kim  and of course Taz are leaving for Hawaii this morning so I am driving them to the airport.I know they will have a fun time and certainly deserve the holiday.Samantha will be staying with me which should be fun .I will have to drive them all to the Dairy Queen as its too cold to walk"at least for me" the furkids probably wouldn't mind walking for soft ice-cream".HaHa

It is snowing here again this morning.I think we will have more snow by the weekend "if the forcast is right" then we have had all winter.I will be happy when spring gets here which I hope isn't too far away.

I hope all is well out your way and that Cupcake's leg has healed.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs from here to there.

P/S Doris and Kim say "Hello".as do Samantha and Taz. "smile".

My beautiful furkids .. Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. everyone comes and visits and posts and I haven't stopped by to post in some time .. though I post in your weekly tribute, I wanted to stop by today.

You three are ALWAYS in my thoughts.  How I miss each of you very much.  I want to thank each of you for watching over your sister Cupcake and brothers Xander and Bentley.  They are loved by their daddy and I know you watch over them and protect them ... THANK YOU.

Always know that your dad LOVES and MISSES you so much.  With Sammy's birthday coming up .. I wanted to stop in.  Sending lots of love and kisses to you three.

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M & Dad Charles,

Cinnamon and I are stopping by to say thank you, Charles, for visiting with Cinnie earlier this month.  We've got to have our A game ready with Sammy's birthday just around the corner, but we didn't want any more time to pass after receiving your note on the 2nd.

I hope the snow isn't causing you too much trouble, Charles.  We've been very fortunate this year, after stuggling with the second snowiest winter in the history of Philadelphia just last year.  As I write NYC and Boston are about to get blasted again, with up to 2 additional of feet forecast, but we are only supposed to get a trace. 

Regarding the memorials, I can see from the time you first posted Sammy's memorial, Charles, you've tended to all of the other angels, as well.  For me, I just want all of these amazing and special souls to know they are never forgotten.  My guess would be that about 35% of the notes I write are never seen because the memorials were reset on July 1, 2013.  But I know these angels see every one.

Thanks again, truly, for your friendship.  As you've heard me say before, you are a good and decent man, Charles, truly. 

Peace and Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Dear Southwest friends,

Good news! Bailey apparently only has a knee sprain/strain. She has also begun to eat a little better. I will be ever vigilant and keep a close eye on her in her senior years but I am so glad to have a break in the last few months scares.Thank you always for your support and friendship.


02-02-2015 1:09 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  


Dear Charles and SantaFe family,

Thank you for your kind posting. I was preparing to write to you yesterday myself. Great minds think alike.

We are all doing okay. Bailey continues to have some health issues and will be going to the vet again this week as she may have knee issues which, unfortunately, you are all too familiar with. I do not believe surgery would be a good fit for her if it seems her ACL is the problem due to her age and current health but I have found a site that makes custom braces which many people say have worked well for their furbabies. I will ask the vet.

Our winter has been almost non-existent. Little rain, even less snow and higher than normal temperatures. It is better for walks that is for sure but overall we really need that rain and snow in the mountains.

Thank you too Charles for the years of friendship and support you have shared. What a wonderful and enduring gift your Sammy and my Princess gave to us.

Hugs to one and all.

Review.? Don't know what caused it.I hope you get my post. I will check later.


01-28-2015 10:09 AM -- By: Lauvern and Toby,  From:  

Dear Charles,Sammy, Gabby and little BobM.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Thank you for your visit and Birthday wishes for Toby. "Much appreciated".These marker days are hard but knowing that Toby is healthy again and in good company makes them some easier.

I hope all is well out your way and that Cupcake is doing better. With all the special care you are taking of her, I know she is. "smile".

We have been having freezing rain here which makes everything icy. I have been throwing sand around all over the yard as well as taking Tyson and Dozer out on their leashes as the two of them don't seem to know how to walk slow and watch for ice. They both run around the yard like bullets as they chase each other . HaHa. The weather is suppose to be getting colder and snow by the weekend. At least that will get rid of the freezing rain and slippery conditions.

Have a good day and Thanks again for remembering Toby's birthday.

Sending Hugs from here to there.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Thank you for your recent visits and kind posts as always. I am begining to feel much better and hopeing to get back to normal soon.  There is so much flu and colds around here it is hard to stay away from it.

The weather here has been so ixed up . We have warm, "melting snow" one day and the next day it is freezing cold. One never knows if it is spring or winter.I hope its spring but I know its too early for that.

I hope Cupcake is doing well. I don't know if you give your furkids Glucosamine vitamins but I was told  by my vet when I had my first boxer , Sarge to give him one a day to keep his legs and joints strong due to the fact that they are such active dogs.My vet now also strongly recomends it as well. He said he recomends them especially for the bullie breeds as they are so over active and rough players..I have been giving them to all my dogs , Bulldogs and Boxers. "just a thought".

I hope all is well and your weather is much more settled then it is here. I never know what I will wake up too'either spring or winter conditions. HaHa.

No news on a new location for Luke's shelter as of yet but "IT WILL RISE AGAIN". smile.

Have a good day and don't work too hard.

Sending hugs through the miles.

Thank you so much for your words of comfort dear Charles. You are such a sweetheart to reach out to us in this time of sadness. I know our "kids" are playing together and yet watch over us here on earth also. Love to you and yours a thousand times more, Kim, Lisa and Buttercup

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

I wanted to check in with you and see how the New Year has been treating you. It has been a rough start for us but I am hopeful that things will improve. Still no word about Bailey's biopsy but I should have it soon.

I hope your kids have been behaving themselves and not getting into the kind of mischief that causes themselves harm (are you listening Cupcake!) 

It has been a very mild and relatively dry winter here. we need snow in the mountains but have little thus far. 

Take care and know you are all thought of often.

01-14-2015 6:40 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, sweet cupcake, Xander and Bentley ... Luna blows a HUGE KISS toward dad Charles ... so big it makes Sammy blush. All is well at the bridge, I see you got some snow, Luna looks down at NYC and shakes her head ... geez it comes then goes, and even before it falls people toss salt, )the make believe white stuff), then snickers ... that's why mom has to put the shoes on. but as the night begins to fall the stars come out ... and as each child looks to the sky they think on one particular star and it begins to twirl ... our everlasting love surrounds you always. Many hugs, Luna & her mom Nadine (Lily and Opal too)

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little BobM.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Well here we are over a week into the New Year and I finally am able to visit friends on Critters this year.  I have been sick with the flu bug for over a week now, but I am begining  to feel some better.There has been so much sickness around here that I was unable to avoid it. During the holidays,i was forced to be out in public where many were sick. That along with not much rest finally caught up with me.

The weather here has been very very cold and windy with power outages everywhere but I did not lose power in my area. Thank goodness!! Some people had no power for days but the city did set them up in hotel rooms as well as many took people in to their homes which was a good thing. The humane society took in the pets that had no place to go and gave them shelter until they can reunite with their owners and go back home. Everything seems back to normal now. "I hope".

Thank you for your visits and kind posts as always. Although I was too ill to post, my friends here at Critters were always in my thoughts.

Wishing you and the kids a VERY PEACEFUL and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

HAPPY NEW YEAR SAMMY, GABBY, BOB M and all of the Padilla family.

Princess, Marquisea dn I wish you a peaceful and joyous 2015


12-31-2014 9:31 PM -- By: Mona,  From: Illinois  

 Charles, I can't let the last few hours of 2014 go by without wishing you a happy and peaceful new year with your beautiful furkids Cupcake, Xander and Bentley. For us here, it's also quiet. The new year may arrive without me officially welcoming it, but before I go to bed I will blow a kiss to my dearest Roo at the Bridge -- joined this past summer by Lily -- and tell them to say hello for me to our friends, among whom I have always counted Sammy, Gabby, and Bob M. Happy New Year, my friend.

12-31-2014 2:49 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Charles & Family,

Cinnamon and I are stopping by for a minute to thank you and your precious angels, Charles, for visiting with Cinnamon, and for doing so much to honor and support all of the angels memorialized here, all year long.

Bless you, Charles, for your kindness and generosity of spirit, and for caring for and loving your dear kids Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

May you and yours, Charles, on two legs and four, have a peaceful, safe and joyous new year in 2015, and know that Cinnie and I will continue to honor and support your dear Sammy, Gabby and Bob M in the years ahead.

Cinnamon & Bruce

 Dear Charles: I love your new music on Sammy's page. As you know, I haven't been here in a long time. I'm bawling my eyes out after reading some of Sammy's pages. We muddle through and know that we will be with them again. Tip is with my Mom and Dad now.

I found Tippy's baby picture today! 



12-24-2014 5:45 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M & Charles,

I'm way behind . . . my company worked today, Charles, and we only get 6 holidays each year! . . . but Cinnie and I had to stop by to wish you merry Christmas and happy new year.

And your choice of company, Charles, your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, as it was for Thanksgiving:  it just can't get any better than that, can it.

I know that Ciinnie, and your Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, will be with their amazing Rainbow Bridge and Critters angel friends, like Princess, Ma, Luke, Rowdy, Molly, wow, so many beautiful souls, and that gives me some comfort, but as you know our angels are loved and missed every single day.

Bless you, Charles, and your angels and kids, now and forever.

Cinnamon & Bruce
