Hi Charles, Can you believe i posted my post meant for you in Luke's guestbook. Ha-Ha. It must be them amigos on my mind. I tried to copy and paste the post to Sammy's guestbook but it didn't work.It just shows Luke's pic below. Ha-Ha.Anyway here it is again.

I see our kids are having a great time at Luke's Cinco De Mayo.I see they are also planning a shnorkling adventure now.Ha-Ha. I have to say when i first learnt about the amigos,the Malta trip and Luke's Cinco De Mayo, i had the biggest laugh. Caliya with her red hair and all was just priceless. Denise and Sherri sure can put these 'stories" together where they almost seem real and Vicki does such a beautiful job of the pictures to go along with the stories. It certainly feels good to be able to remember our babies with a smile on our face.I even had Byron laughing this morning as he read the stories and saw the pictures at Caliya's house. He has been to Cabo San Luke{cas} so can certainly relate to the stories.

I hope all is well with you and the kids. We are getting much needed rain today .Hopefully it will wash some of the allergins away so that i can get back to normal. It has been so dusty for the last week or so.

The newest update on the Bullies is GREAT NEWS, If the owner "if there is one" does not come forward real soon, they will all stay together and will go to one of the best homes i can think of. Cowboy will have two new sisters and two new brothers. YESSSSSSS. Lawrence has fallen in love with these four.. They are going to spend the weekend with him and Cowboy for now and hopefully no one claims them and they will then be living there. Yessssss. Lawrence says if someone does claim them, they better have a excellent explanation as to why they were tied and left in a deserted yard or they won't be getting them back.

My thoughts are they will not be getting them back even if they do come forward as i will let Lawrence handle this one.

Have a great weekend as we know our babies at Rainbow Bridge will. "smile". Thankyou for your kind words to all here at the shelter.

Sending hugs all around

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

There always is a place to go
Where furry friends all meet
Running in the fields of green
With love beyond belief
Imagine all the beauty
You can see in just one day
Each one interacting
Every one at play
Feeling warmth and beauty In every blade of grass God is smiling on them
The sunshine always lasts
Telling them how proud He is
To have them gathered there
In his place of every dream
Where love is so aware

Little fields of gracious ones Receiving every blessing Happy in this joyful bliss
Each day His Love carressing
Joy in life now gathered
In every running stream
Shades of special rainbows
Reflecting all their dreams
Time in life is over
But love has just begun
For God created all this joy
For every precious one
•y preci
We think of our tomorrows
Remember yesterdays But always life's reflections Brings warmth in every way

"How long will the pain last?"
A broken-hearted mourner asked me.
"All the rest of your Life,"
I have to answer truthfully.

We never quite forget.
No matter how many years pass, we remember.
The loss of a loved one is like a major operation.
Part of us is removed, and we have a scar
For the rest of our lives.

As years go by, we manage.
There are things to do, things to care for,
Tasks that call for full attention.
But the pain is still there, not far below the surface.

We see a dog or a cat that looks familiar,
Hear a voice that echoes,
See a photograph we put away,
See a landscape that once we saw together,
And it seems as though
A knife were in the wound again.

But not so painfully,
And mixed with joy, too,
Because remembering a happy time is not all sorrow;
It brings back some happiness with it, too.

How long will the pain last?
"All the rest of your life."
But the thing to remember
Is that not only will the pain last,
But the blessed memories as well.

Tears are proof of life;
The more love, the more tears.
If this be true, then how could we ever ask
That the pain cease altogether?
For then the memory of love would go with it.
The pain of grief is the price we pay for love.

Hi Charles and kids. Ijust wanted to stop by and hope all is well with you and the kids. The four babies i told you about are doing real well. Although they appear that that have been someones pets at one time, i have advertised in every local paper as well as informed the humane society that i have them at the shelter if someone is looking for them. I have had no response.There are no tags,microchips or tatoos on them so WHO KNOWS why i found them where i did. They are fitting in real well with the others and of course Samantha has to show them all around the shelter grounds. Ha-Ha. They are not up for adoption yet as i want, whoever had 'if they did" own them at one time to have the chance to learn where they are. I have contacted the radio stations as well this morning,so will see what happens.It does not appear that they were left abandoned for too long but what confuses us is that where they were was a deserted farm home. Anyway will see what happens. They are safe and fitting right in. They already know all about granny's cookies too. Ha-Ha-Ha.

We are suppose to get some rain today which is badlty needed right now. I hope the weather man is right today which is not always the case.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane.
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy we knew remain.

Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.

And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.

Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.

Our Special Angel
God chose a special Angel
when he took your paw in his…
He ended all your suffering
with sorrows own sweet kiss…

  You worried about our welfare,
so you lingered a few nights more…
Assuring yourself that we would be fine
before you entered Heaven’s door…

The angels said, “We will be waiting here”,
“Just lets us know when you are ready”…
Your soul whispered back, “I cannot leave yet”,
“I am not sure their hearts are steady”…

On the shores of both heave and earth,
stood loved ones from past and present…
Your heart was literally torn in half
having to choose between your deeper sentiment…

Seeing the conflict in your eyes,
we knew what must be done…
In all of our agony, we failed to realize,
that we were being the selfish ones…

So, in one final selfless act,
we told you to take God’s paw…
So that together, you and he
could cross over to the promise land…

In one final breath filled with
your passion so deep and true…
You took God’s hand and left behind
all of those who truly adored you…

Our only solace is knowing,
that now you are free of pain…
And when God comes to take our hands
that he will lead us back to you again…

Remember me with love, not tears,

and think of all of our happy years.

When I was sick, you were at my side

Your tears and fears, you tried to hide..


I know you did your best for me,

but God above was calling me.

The tears with time, will go away,

but the love we shared will always stay.


Now the Lord has set me free,

that is how I want you to remember me...

One day in the future, just over the ridge,

I’ll be waiting for you, standing on Rainbow Bridge.


That gentle breeze that made the wind chimes sing?

That was me, I was there with you.


The gentle snow falling upon your tears?

That was me, I was there with you.


And that little beam of sunlight that danced on the

otherwise shaded deck that day?

That was me, I was there with you.


Until we’re together, never more to be apart.

Remember me with love, I left my paw prints on your heart.


Wherever you are going and whatever you may do,

Just look down right beside you, I will be there next to you.


Remember and Believe

Hi Charles, sweet Sammy and all the kids,  Thank you for your visit and stopping by.  Yes, strange weather.  I saw where you folks even had a little snow lately.  Here strange too.  One weekend will be real nice, sunny, with slight breeze, in upper 70's  or 80's;  then the next weekend kind of cruddy.  This weekend not so good.  They have a civil war renactment going on here with cannons and such, I swear, I always think those cannons boom so loud when they go off that they cause it to rain.  It is always drizzely and rainy here when they have the re-enactment.  Yes, ready for it to stay nice and summer for awhile.  I can see your Cupcake and Xander enjoy their walks, outings and car/truck rides, hanging their heads out the window, enjoying the cool breezes, when its nice out.    Take care all,  ttyl.......sincerely, glenise & daisy

Good Morning Charles and kids. You don't know how happy it makes me just to know there are others out there trying to help find forever homes for these fur babies. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for doing what you do. Tell Janelle i said Hello and i for one am very proud of what she does. I wish you luck and hope you are able to place many,preferably all of these precious babies.They all deserve forever loving homes. I will be thinking of you today at the "Fetch Apalooza" and i know you will  no doubt love to be around all of the furbabies as i am daily. Thankyou for letting me know what you are doing. We need alot more people such as yourself to give their time to these babies so badly in need of our help. THANKYOU. Have a great day .

Hi Charles and all your Babies. How's the weather in your area? It's been running around the mid 60s. That's ok by me. I hope things are going well for you.

04-22-2010 10:44 PM -- By: Lauvern,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou  for stopping by and for your kind words as always. I  am sorry i did not get back to you sooner but i am having problems wirh JoJo who is Kc 's actual brother from the same litter. He is missing Kc and refusing to eat and walks around the house calling for KC as he always did when he couldn't find him. I have been spending my time giving him extra attention as well as taking him to the shelter with me daily,just to be with him.Toby and Tyson are also grieving the loss of Kc but not as bad as JoJo. I take the three of them to the shelter with me and of course their are other cats there  that i had hoped JoJo would play with but  no such luck.JoJo  He hangs around Toby and Tyson and  myself.  He did eat some on his own today finally after me hand feeding him for the last few days.So i think he will be ok. He is getting very close to Toby and cuddles by him when it is bed time like he used to do with Kc. These fur babies certainly grieve as we humans do. It is so hard to watch them grieve and we just don't know what to do for them. My fur babies have always been especially close to each other.I guess that makes it harder on them when we lose one of the family.Anyway i am hoping things keep going in the right direction. Thankyou again for stopping by.

Sending hugs all around.
