 Thank you for the sweet visits you have made to Erin's pages over the years. Your words mean so much. Erin just had a birthday on 12/9 & I realized I hadn't been on this site often. But, that doesn't mean that I don't think about my sweet boy. Almost every day there is something that reminds me of him. I have a new boy now, his name is Andre & some of his habits are the same as Erin's. I can see from you page how much you loved your Sammy. He looks like he was such a special guy. I wish you & yours many blessings as we enter into the Holiday season & we remember our loved ones that have gone before. I always say I know that one day we will meet out sweet angels at the RB & what a glorious day that will be. Thanks again for your visits.

 Dearest Charles, and Precious Angels Sammy and Gabby and Bob M. and Little Angels here on Earth Cupcake, Xander, and Bentley, thank you so much for stopping by Missy's Memorial. You are welcome any time, and please don't worry about missing Missy's Angelversary. I don't see how you keep up with all that you do, most of all being such a genuine inspiration for all those grieving here on Critters for their lost ones. Sorry to hear that you've been stressed up there, somewhat. You certainly don't deserve that. We hope that you have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and that you and all your Sweeties and all your family have a relaxing day with such joy. Things are going well down here, but our little Smokey is very ill, and we are down to providing hospice care for him. We will miss him so much. He has brought such love and devotion to us for almost four years now. Love and hugs to you, and I'll try to send you a pic of the little vase of four white roses that we placed on Missy's grave, one rose for every year she has been gone. Bless you.

Dear Charles,

All throughout the year I give thanks everyday for all of my critters friends and family but at this time of year in particular I like to reach out and tell each of you specifically how much you mean to me. The support you give so willingly means the world to me. You Charles and you dear boy Sammy are, as I have told you before, one of my rocks. The loving care you provide to Cupcake, Xander and Bentley is unparalleled and such a shining example to others who do not understand your chosen breed. Thank you Charles for all you do and all you give. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

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

Just stopping by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful and safe Holiday Season.

I hope all is well out your way. I am still busy trying to get my mom settled into her new place which is not easy as she isn't likeing it as of yet but hopefully in time she will. I do visit her daily which is about all I can do. ...I have not found a new location to move Luke's shelter too but am certainly looking also being very careful with my decision as I don't want to be uprooted again. "Once is enough".We are still working on getting my Mom's house ready for sale as we have the time to do so.

I hope all is well out your way.

Thank you for your continued friendship and have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Charles:

I want to THANK YOU for stopping by Molly's memorial to honor and remember our precious girl on her recent birthday, and for leaving your kind and supportive message.  Please know that your continued support and friendship has been greatly appreciated!   Despite the years that have passed since Molly's departure, I still really miss my dear old friend and think of her often --- and I suppose part of me always will.  I hope you are doing well and that you are enjoying the last bits of autumn before winter "officially" swoops in (that is, unless you are living somewhere that has already been getting its share of snow).  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a beautiful & peaceful holiday season.
Hugs To You and to all your Furkids

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

Thank you for your visits and kind posts to myself and all at Luke's shelter. As you know I have not been here in awhile due to the heavy workload of trying to get my Mom's house ready for sale as well as tieing things up at Luke's shelter. We have been looking for property to relocate to but so far there has been nothing of interest. We have two places to look at tomorrow which sound and look quite good according to the real estate. They are both in good locations but further from  home which doesn't matter if all else is suitable. I have my eye on especially one of them but will see what happens tomorrow.I am certainly hopeing it is all good.

The weather here is cooler but not as cold as normal for this time of year which is a good thing . I hope it stays that way . "Thinking of the furbabies needing shelter of coarse".

Although I don't come here much due mostly to lack of free computer time, know that my friends at Critters are never far from my mind.

Thank you again for your always kind posts.


Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

 Dear Charles,

I was just re-reading posts on my beloved Colton's webpage.  Three-and-a-half years later, I still ache for him as I know you still grieve the loss of Sammy.

I wonder if we ever did meet in Santa Fe.  I miss New true home.

Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.

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

The kids and I are stopping in to wish you a lovely weekend as well a nice Veteran's Day. I will be remembering my Dad as well as the other two and four legged heroes who serve(d) our country. We would not live the free life we have without all of them that is for sure.

It will be a working time off for us. We are having a very overdue new roof installed and have much to do in preparation for the upcoming holidays too. There will be time for walks and treats of course! How boring life would be without the little breaks that make memories and bring joy.  I hope you and your three will enjoy some well deserved time together before you get too much rain or cold temps.  We will have a rare mostly dry day 4 days and will take advantage of them. 

Thank you as always for keeping all of us in your thoughts and for visiting when you can.

 Hi Charles:

Just wanted to drop you a quick message to let you know that I was thinking of you and wishing you well.  I hope that you had a great summer and have been enjoying the Fall season.  I appears that Winter and the holiday season will soon be nipping at our heels! -- hope you can finally relax after all the work you did this summer and just enjoy it all to the fullest.  Hugs to you and "the kids".
Best Wishes To You Always,

Charles: Thanks so much for remembering my little Cindy on her special day. It means so much! <3

10-24-2014 4:18 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

My lengthy post went to review. 

So hard to know what I say wrong. I will wait to see if it shows up then try other avenues.

10-24-2014 4:14 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  


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

It is always such a delight to see an announcement of a new guest book post from a good friend like you.   Fall has definitely made its appearance here. Heavy rains this week  but they only kept us in most of one day. The kids would not have it any longer than that for sure and I miss our walks as well.

I have good news from Sharon after I contacted her again yesterday. I know you and many others are frustrated when we cannot log on. She said, "We just set up an automatic reboot to go every hour -- hoping that stops the connection failure - let me know if you see it again ... fingers crossed this does the trick :)" I hope it will work too.

Bailey, Kit and I wrapped up our planting in the forest early this week just before the rains came. We still have some winterizing to do but the plants are in, happily rained upon. We all have such a good time out there. I imagine, Princess, Marquisea, Sammy, Rowdy, Cinnamon, Luke and so many other cavorting out there and it never fails to bring a smile to my face. 

I wish I could say my PT is helping and it may be but only for a short period of time after each session. I know I need to be patient but it is difficult.  

Sending special Halloween wishes across the miles to my friends south. Keep safe and be well. Hugs to one and all.

10-24-2014 11:27 AM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Hi Sammy, Gabby and Bob M AND DAD CHARLES ... Luna places her arms around Sammy and gives him a great big KISS ... Mwah. He looks a little bashful and mutters, my dad, and Luna nods yes ... then a grim appears - you could tell his eyes was smiling.

Ah Yes Fall, those leaves are magnificent, but the clean up ... well that's another story. How I love the four seasons ... but my favorite time is now, the cool breeze, it's great sleeping weather, no slushy or messy paws, and the girls love to play in the mild temps 50's-60's. Sending HUGS your way with lots of paw prints too ... fur-ever and ever and EVER! (Hugs) Luna & her mom Nadine

10-17-2014 8:50 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, and Dad Charles,

I hope (and pray), for your angels and beloved kids, too, Charles, and that things in general are going well for you and yours. 

I sounds like the fire danger for you has subsided, and I hope that in turn your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley have been able to spend a lot of quality time with their Dad.

I remain profoundly thankful for the love and devotion every one of my angels has shared with me over my now more than 60 years on this planet, Charles, and for my wonderful Critters friends now, as well.  The thing we all have in common, I think, is that angels and parents alike, we at one time hoped and prayed that we'd be together forever, but we didn't factor in how far the distance was between heaven and earth.  

Bless you and yours, Charles, angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.  Be well, my friend, and I'll catch up again before Thanksgiving.

Peace and Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

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

I am finally able to post a note after the critters site was down. Typing is still difficult due to the pain in my arm but I could not pass up a chance to stop in to wish you a happy fall. I started physical therapy this week but the therapist is only slightly optimistic about any improvements that may come about. I hope she is wrong as my business requires much typing.

The rain is due to come in next week, when we were scheduled to get a new roof! Guess that will be put off for a time.

The kids and I have been working out in the forest where I feel so close to Princess, Ma and the other critters who shadow me there. It is a wonderfully peaceful place which I hope you can visit someday. New plantings and yard art abound and I believe most everything is in order for fall and winter.I know this is a short note and that my posts have been few and far between due to my inability to type but I hope it lets you know I appreciate your continuing friendship.

I was sorry to hear about the trouble you have encountred AGAIN with your neighbors. I hope it has been resolved and that you and your kids are left in peace. I have enjoyed seeing pictures of your kids too in other places. Keep posting and know I keep you all in my heart.

I added a new page in Princess's memorial so check it out when you have a chance.  

Hugs to one and all.

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

Thank you for your recent posts and kindness as always.As I have mentioned before ,all here at the shelter see them and appreciate them, so Thank you again.

There are no updates on my Mom as of yet but I should know more within the next couple of days when her results all come back.I will write to you when I know something. I have been quite busy going to the hospital a few times a day as well as doing as much as possible at the shelter. Thankfully Doris, Kim and  Trina  have taken over looking after all as well as a few high school students have been volunteering extra time after school knowing that I have been spending alot of time at the hospital." What would I ever do without them all".

I hope all is well out your way and that the kids are all doing well as I am sure they are.

I will write to you when I here anything.

Sending Hugs through the cool northren breeze.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

 Charles and Sammy. thank you so much for your lovely tribute that you posted on Deputy Dog's page. Sorry it took me awhile to stop by, but I did not want you to think I do not appreciate all the thoughts and kindnesses of my critter friends. Your Sammy is such a beautiful boy, he says so much with his eyes. At times, I find it so hard not to cry and be really sad, but courage and faith usually win out and I put my trust in hope, knowing that the reunion we will all experience with our furkids will be awesome. My prayer for you is that your wonderful memories of dear Sammy fill your heart with joy unspeakable and his spirit is near you always. Thank you again. my friend......

Just stopping by Sammy's page. What a beautiful dog he was  I can very much tell you loved him so much and was apart of you and you still miss him after 6 years has passed. Your Sammy's signs are beautiful to know he's there. Anyways I want to say thanks again for stopping on my page your words made me feel a little better about my Lucky. I miss him so much and it's still hard.

Hi Charles,Thank You so much for stopping by my beloved Chico's Memorial.I appreciate your kind words.I am sure he has met your furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge and is running and playing with them and all the other furbabies there.Take Care,Devonda & Chico

09-22-2014 3:24 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M & Charles,

On this last day of summer 2014, Cinnamon and I are just stopping by to say hello, and wish you and your family well, Charles.  There's really a chill in the air here now on east coast, and this summer was absent any long periods of very hot weather.  

Of course, the way we here at Critters tend to measure our seasons and years is by the absence of our precious kids, as you know, Charles, and this third summer for my family with no Cinnamon by our side here on earth only reinforces how incredibly special, and beloved, she is and will always be.

I hope the fire danger for you has subsided with the approach of fall, Charles, and that everyone, including of course your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley are doing well.  As you have heard me say before, my friend, but the truth never gets tiresome, you are a good, generous and kind man, Charles, and I hope that you enjoy a reawarding and safe fall, one and all.  I am certain that your precious angels do all that they can to protect and comfort you and your family every day.

Bless you and yours, Charles, your sweet angels Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, and your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, today and always.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce
