Hi there Charles, so-precious Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Xander & Cupcake,   Thank you so much Charles and your kids for alway keeping in touch with and visiting us, as well as all the others you visit.  We certainly treasure your friendship. 

We are having such nice weather here,  not too hot or humid yet, but just cool enough to not need A/C ---   yes!!

That will be nice when you are able to do your planting.  Hope weather continues to hold out for you.  Your kids will love getting out in the fresh air all the time.  Daisy always looked forward to the spring and fall.  As she got older the winter and summer months became more difficult.  But then, those are difficult months for all of us to get through.  What I like about the spring, fall and summer, is it is not so depressing as the winter time.  So i welcome it.  Well for right now, i will probably change my tune when the humidity arrives.   Well Charles, we have brought you a Father's Day verse, a month early.  The women get the mother's day, so it's only fair to get the father's day out also.  So here is your Father's Day verse as told to me by your sweet Sammy.  Oh, and a flower.   Well, I would rather give the guys a mack truck or something,  but i cannot make here goes:  For One of the Best Dad's in "Crittersville".

Thank you, Dad
Thank you, Dad

Thanks for loving me.
Hugs and kisses, hugs and kisses,

Comes to you from me.
Thank you, Dad

Thank you, Dad
You are such a friend.

On this day I'd like to say,
On you I can depend.

~ Happy Father's Day ~ @}--}}---< /span>

Hi Charles and kids. I am sorry it took me so long to reply to your post. Thankyou as always for all your kind words to me and all at the shelter. We have  kids carnival rides and treats of course set up on the shelter grounds for all the elementary school kids who volunteer at the shelter. I wanted to do this in appreciation for all the kids that help out at the shelter. Needless to say, we have been run off our feet. Ha-Ha.The carnival will be here till Sunday. The kids are loving this treat as well as the shelter furbabies are loving all the extra attention.Ha-Ha.

I see our kids are having  much fun at Cabo San Luke. Ha-Ha.

I hope all is well with you ,Cupcake and Xander.

Sending Hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Charles and kids, I just left you a message and for some reason it is being reviewed by Critters??? I am not sure why. Hopefully it will post soon.

Hello Charles, Sammy, Bob M., Gabby, Cupcake and Xander. What a pleasure it was to hear from you. It's taking me a while to reply to all the wonderful friends that have stopped by. My little don Buster put up such a fight. He is my little hero. Doctor Guajardo told me that Buster fought so hard because he loved me so much he did not want to leave. I nearly lost him December 24th, and orinically exactly four monht slater was the way we had to part. He came near to leaving on Ebony's third angelversary, and I just couldn't make that decision. My heart is beyond shattered Charles. I know you understand.

I went through all the pages of Sammy's memorial again, and WOW!!! Sammy's memorial is beautiful! Your kids Cupcake and Xander are absolutely gorgeous. I love the picture with them napping "neck to neck"...precious! I love them all. Pitbulls are precious and it is very sad that they are labled because ignorant people abuse them. Thank God for parents like you. My big girl Tina Turner (Pit/Lab mix) makes a lot of people jump back whtn they pass my yard. I tll them she is a big baby, and she is, but they see the Pit in her and usually stay clear. It's really sad. They are missing out on touhcing, petting and getting to know a very lovely girl. Thank you so much for your continued support Charles. It means the world to me. Bless you and all your kids. What a wonderful daddy they have. Hugs to you all!!!

 Hi Charles and precious Sammy! It was good to hear from you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend too and get some sunshine there. We are finally having a sunny day today, although a little chilly, after having lots of rain and hail this whole week. But this weekend is supposed to warm up and I am soooo looking forward to that! LOL about Saada and snorkeling... she was not much for going in the water, in fact we couldn't even get her to swim. So far, little sister Juji, is following in her footsteps! Hope you, Cupcake and Xander are doing well and big hugs to all.

Thank you so much for your kind words.  I have recieved such an outpouring of support from other pitbull owners.  It has been a true comfort. 

Thank you again.

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.
