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 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.
Best Wishes To You & your sweet Luna
11-15-2014 4:43 PM -- By: Ebony and her mom, From: oru hearts
Hi Nadine and Luna, It took my mom and I a long time to write this, but you always write such awesome stories, that we thought we’d give it try just for you.
Luna looks out from the cliff at the landscape, her eyes wide with amazement. “Does it stretch past the horizon?” she asks. Ebony smiles and jumps up a ledge in the path. “Yes. Much further past it.” Ebony stops in her path and looks back at Luna. “You will see everything, and more.” Ebony’s mouth slips into a mentoring smile. “Why are we walking?” Ebony doesn’t answer right away, continuing on the path. “Because if we flew up this high, you would have wandered off to chase the horizon, and I would have had to chase after you.” Luna pouts, trotting up closer to Ebony. The path ends abruptly just short of the peak, and they stand on it, looking out at the horizon over the ocean. Ebony’s features soften, and she leans her forehead against Luna’s. Luna thinks for a moment. Her eyes gaze into Ebony’s eyes, whose muzzle rests against hers. Ebony wordlessly pulls away from Luna and steps out to the path’s edge, her legs spread and her eyes glowing. The shadows on the ground move, and Luna watches in silent awe as the sun lowers over the horizon, light and color playing across the land as it descends.
Luna looks up at the empty night sky. She lies down on the path, crossing her paws over one another as she thinks. Ebony patiently waits. Nothing moves, nothing stirs, as the two lay opposite each other, Luna staring at the ground, and Ebony staring at her. Then, Luna looks up. “What if there were a landscape sitting in the night sky?” she asks, looking at her “big sister”? “A landscape in the sky?” Ebony asks with a smile. “What do you mean by that?” Luna cranes her neck back to look up at the night. “A place just like where we are now, only up in the sky.” “And that is what you wish?” Luna hesitantly nods. Ebony simply stands and looks up, her gaze focusing on one part of the sky, as her eyes begin to glow.
It starts off as a speck, looking like a piece of dust in the night sky, but it begins to grow and take shape. Ebony hears Luna gasp and stand to her feet. Out of the corner of her eye, Ebony sees Luna’s mouth hang open as she watches the speck in the sky grow. The speck grows to an orb of pale light, perfectly spherical, and the same size as the sun, but dimmer, glowing a pale yellow where the sun shines on it from the other side of the world’s sky. Luna looks up at the sky, a crescent moon hanging in it, and the light from it sparkles in her eyes. “I...” Luna closes her eyes and smiles. Ebony turns back to look at the night sky, gazing at the moon along with her. The light from it casts a very faint glow on the rock that appears almost magical. Ebony turns to leave, walking back down the path. “Wait!” Luna says, staring at her. “Where are you going?” “I like being up here,” Luna says, blushing. “The view is beautiful from up here.” Ebony feels a weight against her side and looks down to see Luna resting her head against her shoulder and looking out at the distance. “What is it you see?” Ebony asks with a slightly curious tone. (Luna is silent. Her tail dances behind her, and Ebony can feel it brush against her side.) “My mom.” Luna lifts her head to look up at Ebony. “I see a place with my mom where I can make anything that I dream come true.” “Anything I can dream...” Ebony says, growing silent. Ebony’s eyes widen and she looks down at Luna. She laughs and reaches down to nip Luna’s ear playfully. “Where do you get such ideas?” Luna flicks her ear in irritation and pouts. “How would I know? Probably from my mom. She is always good at telling beautiful stories” she says, looking away. Ebony says, wrapping herself around Luna. “And I do enjoy basking in the light of your.” Luna’s pout breaks into a smile. “Really?” “Yes,” Ebony simply answers, feeling Luna rest her head against her once more. Tiny Dancer, “you had a busy day today”.
Ebony waits for Luna to wake as she stares at the crescent of light hanging in the sky, rarely blinking and never tearing her eyes from it. The moon just sits there with her, lighting the night sky and staring back at her. An idea grows in Ebony as she stares at the moon. Carefully retracting her arm around Luna and setting down little Luna’s head to rest on the Sandstone, Ebony stands with confidence and purpose.
Ebony’s mouth slips into a triumphant smile, and she looks to the opposite horizon to see the sun about to rise. The sky over the horizon becomes beautiful and pink. It becomes soothing and tender, and it causes Ebony to feel a wave of warmth wash over her. It is the feeling of being wrapped around Luna, and falling asleep next to her. Ebony lays her head against the sandstone and looks out off the cliff, watching the sun come up. The pink gives way to red, gives way to orange, gives way to yellow, as the sun peeks over the edge of the world. The two sit in silence and watch the sky change, long shadows trailing on the path behind them.
The sun continues to rise, and the colors disappear and return to blue. Ebony stands, and Luna rises quickly after her. As a curtain of cloud creeps from the horizon and makes its way across the sky, it conceals the sun and eventually blots out every trace of blue. The air begins to pick up around them, blowing in a harsh wind that howls in their ears. “You picture what you desire,” Ebony shouts over the wind, which steadily grows louder and faster. “And it will happen.” Up above, the veil of white darkens, and Luna looks up with awe as jagged bolts of light dance through the clouds, creating echoing bangs as they arc through the sky.
Something small falls and hits Luna on the nose. She flinches, crossing her eyes and looking at the tip of her nose to see a drop of water. Another falls next to her, and she jumps back, looking at the tiny dark spot on the sandstone where it landed. Then an ocean of drops falls from the sky. The drops soak their coats as though they had just gone swimming, cooling their bodies, and turning the mountain rock gray.
Luna lifts a paw, watching the drops splash against it. “This is...” She’s at a loss of words, watching it fall. “This is Rain,” Ebony says, deciding then and there to call it that. Luna’s mouth eases into a calm smile. “It is soothing.” Ebony turns and walks over to her, tearing her gaze from the rain. “Magic breathes life into desire,” Ebony says, turning to look around them. “And anything you will, it makes happen.” Ebony turns back to Luna and sees her eyes light up, the familiar look of her forming an idea.
“We need to fly downward...near earth,” Luna says, an almost excited gleam in her eye. She snaps her toes and dives off the cliff. Ebony simply chuckles, shaking her head before following her down the cliff-side through the rain, drops of water pelting her coat as she speeds after Luna. As she races past, she notices the water trickling through the cracks in the sandstone, like hundreds of rivers, back to the ocean, and they are following them there. Ebony stands and walks to the shore, stepping on the newly altered ground. It’s soft, and it shifts out of the way of her paw prints, unlike the sandstone. “It is very different.” Luna opens a pained eye, her breath coming in short pants. “I call it sand.” She struggles to sit, and Ebony rushes over to help her. She looks around, a frown slipping onto her lips. “How are we to change all this?” She sighs, her ears drooping. “This is such a small part of the land I changed, and I feel exhausted.”
Ebony looks around, before turning to Luna and smiling. “We travel,” she says simply. “And we craft it piece by piece, just as I did with the mountains and gorges.” Luna looks up with a pained smile. “You’ve been here much longer than I have, haven’t you?” Ebony nods and grows quiet, a distant look in her eyes. “Much longer...” The rain pelts them as they gaze at the stormy ocean. “The world is empty, Luna. Let us fill it.” Luna manages to stand, her legs shaking, and looks at Ebony with a smile, her coat matted and wet. She spreads her wings and lifts into the sky and out over the ocean.
A smile creeps up on Ebony’s lips, and she shakes her head, sighing, knowing she will have to chase to keep up with the little gal. Her wings snap open, rocketing into the sky after her and leaving a small crater in the sand. She gains on Luna quickly, being the faster flier of the two, and glides alongside her. The rain is uncomfortable to fly in, and it makes their bodies heavy with water clinging to their feathers, and the cloud cover disperses, breaking up and leaving only a few small white wisps in the sky.
Luna looks around wildly, and turns to Ebony. “Where do we go?” “It is your turn to wander. I will simply follow.” Luna goes back to looking around, biting her lip. She picks a direction and flies toward it, and Ebony angles her wings to follow. They fly through the sky, their coats drying in the wind and sun. They fly for days on end, towards sunrises and sunsets, seeing the world. Ebony finds herself smiling with nostalgia as they cross familiar places she wandered so long ago. And when Luna gasps at the deep chasms and peaks so high that they pierce clouds, it makes Ebony swell with pride. Luna gives her a grateful nod and closes her eyes, a midnight aura of magic enveloping her body. Shadows sweep over where they stand, and Ebony looks up to see gray clouds gathering overhead, though they are calmer than during the storm. For a while, the clouds just sit there, nothing seemingly happen, but then a single speck of white floats down from the sky, and lands on Ebony’s nose. It is getting cold. The white speck melts to water, just as dozens more come to join it. Then thousands. The magic surrounding Luna fades, and she opens her eyes. “It’s snow,” she states...just in time for the holidays.
Ebony looks at the ground, where the snow is beginning to stick and not melt. Soon, a thin sheet of white covers the ground where they are, and Ebony looks up to the mountains to see their peaks had turned white. Ebony turns to Luna and sees the other mare gesture towards the frozen expanse, asking an opinion. Ebony turns back to the frozen ocean. “It is cold.” Luna lifts a paw to suppress a giggle. Ebony looks at her, a smile finding its way to her own face as she lifts a paw to stifle her own laughter. “Shall we go somewhere warm, then?” Luna asks, a scheming light in her eyes. “Because I had an idea for something called a desert.” We. The use of the word is not lost on Ebony, and she nods in reply. “Yes, I think I’d like that.” The two of them snap their toes, and fly through the snow, filling the world with whatever they imagined, as they feel their mom’s love hovering all around them. We love our moms, and will watch over them forever. Thank you so much for stopping by and making our day.

Hi Nadine and Luna. Thanks again for stopping my boy's page you made me feel happy. "The Scientist" by Coldplay on Lucky's main page is an emotional breathtaking song! I could listen to over and over again too. The words I wrote on Lucky's page really came from deep within because he mean't so much to me. I hope they were touching because I just miss him so much. I can tell you had bonding memories with Luna from reading on your page even though her life was quite short. And I do feel grateful to have had a special relationship with Lucky because the connection we had was so special. I oftentimes come to read Lucky's guestbook when it gets tough and your words really help me. I really appreciate it because I know people believe "it's just a dog" but Lucky's passing really affected me to the lowest point especially my emotions. Thank You and I again appreciate for you stopping by with your kind words.

10-30-2014 9:06 PM -- By: Luna, From: Happy Birthday Butler
Butler, Halloween is approaching and your birthday is almost near …
It begins getting darker, it’s very quiet except for eerie branches swaying as they let go of their few remaining leaves, but nothing goes to waste as a few gusts of wind sends those leaves rustling along the crooked cobble stone path that leads up to a haunted mansion high on the hill.
Luna peeks out from behind a few bushes next to the entry gate and calls to Butler, “Come on Butler … this is what you have been waiting for!” As they walks toward the mansion, Luna noticed Butler stopped, as she caught a glimpse of a single candle burning from an upper window, it’s glow was very bright and strong, but the feelings were even stronger. They continued tilled they reached the porch which is adorned with a carved pumpkin. Butler walked up the steps, opened the lid with a smile and set the candle a blaze … and she knew it could have only been carved by one person … and headed straight towards the huge front door, as she stood in front of them they opened by themselves and they found themselves standing in a most elegant entry parlor with had a staircase that wrapped around. As their eyes follow its path up the winding trail, they noticed next to the huge window was a rocking chair … Butler jumped up and began to RUN up those steps … Luna right behind her. As Butler reached the landing she jumped right in to the chair … Luna noticed a soft fluffy pillow beside it and got all cozy, but when she looked up she noticed Butler was climbing, as she looked on she noticed a faint silhouette and knew she was with her mom … as she began to nuzzle her head in to her mom's neck, the chair started rocking by itself. Then Luna could hear a faint "hiss" and she knew they were together, same space, same time. Luna could see her as Butler nestles herself upon her shoulders … a calm came over her as she watched through adoring eyes, “You don’t always have to see them it to know that it is there”.
You are LOVED. You are in our thoughts more than you know; deeply appreciated even if we can’t find the words, we would be lost without you. Butler sat nestled upon her mom with great admiration, respect, loyalty and courage … for she is her mother’s daughter. Thinking of you both always, Luna & her mom Nadine
10-28-2014 4:47 PM -- By: Luna, From:
Butler, thinking of you on your angel day and always … its HALLOWEEN and all are Welcome.
Upon a hill nestled between mosey dark grass and bare bark tree sits a castle, not just any castle this one is haunted. Luna peaks out from behind the mirror and shouts, “How do I look?” as she parades around in her witches outfit riding her magical broom … Butler snickers as she repositions her eye patch, places her pirates hat upon her head and stands with her sword pointed, turns to Luna and says, “What do you think?” Luna smiles, and said “You’re one proud pirate” … Butler snickers. Then they hear a few knocks at the front door, and in walks Dale, Luke, Sammy, Princess Baby Girl and Milo. Luna smiles, ah, the decorating committee. There are three huge boxes in the center of the room and they each get busy. Luke drapes the windows, halls and walls with a fine webbing mesh as princess Baby Girl places candles in the wall sconces and chandeliers, Dale is out front digging up a few patches and together with Sammy moving tomb stones in to position. They place a fog machine behind the bushes which give the illusion of spirits and air of mystery. The children all work through the day and by nightfall they are ready.
As all the children gather, the gates open. As they walk along the winding path the winds begin to howl and the moon casts its shadow upon the trees. Slowly they step with a watchful eye, but as they reach the front door it slowly begins to open. They enter and are amazed, this castle was truly transformed! But there is something else, as each child enters they look around and get an overwhelming sense of calm and unity. Butler stands tall and proud at the top of the staircase as she instructs all to enter the ball room … upon entering they notice in the center of the hall is “an amazing light”, it fills the room till you can no longer see it but you can feel the warmth. You see it’s because all the kids’ parents were invited too! Yes YOU, the kids were overwhelmed and excited. With their hearts full of laughter they dance through the night, as the warmth of our love surrounds them.
After a festive night of Ghost stories, bobbing for apples, a tour of the haunted castle; when they were done playing through the night, dining on candy, good eats and gourmet treats, the sun begins to rise and skies turn blue … they each step out to the garden and whisper to the wind, one by one lift their face to the wind and say, “I will always LOVE YOU”. For all the hearts that long for a touch, you have touched ours. (Hugs) and all our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

Hi Nadine. I appreciate so much for stopping by on my Lucky's page. I am glad to have dog owner's like you who know exactly what I'm going through. The past couple days I've been just holding back the tears when I think about Lucky and it's helping. I think the part that hurts me the most is looking at his pictures for too long. And yes I know Lucky will always be apart of who I am and looks over me. I don't know I started to realize after he passed that he was truly my bestfriend and we were apart of each others lives for a very long time. And when he passed I didn't come to realization that it would be this hard because there are so many things that remind me of him that's it's just too painful. Anyways I'll be back here to write on here. You are so nice and thoughtful! Thank You

Happy Birthday Dollie Gurl!
The stars begin to twinkle in the sky, but there is one who shines ever so brightly, its lil Miss Dollie Gurl and she shares her love with you. Before she joins the others for the festivities she sits upon a cloud, and begins to play with a single star, one in particular. As she spins, rolls and tosses it about … it’s begins to get bigger and brighter, more radiant with every touch … then she releases it to the sky and it begins to SHINE BRIGHTLY. As she looks up upon her star that shines so bright she whispers to her daddy, Star light star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.
When she looks down upon the clouds she knows she is dusted with many flower petals and looks upon her daddy with a smile. She knows you’ve been puttering around in her garden and how very much you Love Her! Then standing there beside her is a very handsome lil man, she smiles as he hands her a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and says, “Happy Birthday Lil Miss Dollie Gurl”. .. Come on the party awaits … as she looks upon her star she smiles … when you wish upon a star all things are possible. All our love, Luna & her mom Nadine
10-16-2014 4:55 PM -- By: Luna, From: Happy Birthday Puck
PUCK, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
The sky is a vibrant blue, and the clouds are floating as freely as if they were as light as a feather, then Luna noticed Puck and walked toward him. As she sat beside him she noticed he was tugging and pulling those clouds making them into shapes, she got excited and smiled, “Oh my, that one looks like YOU”. Puck begins to smile and says, “Yes, my mom is always looking at the clouds so today I wanted to let her know I’ve noticed She Noticed!” and he smiles a tiny puckish grin. As the clouds fill the sky more and friends gather … It’s not the brightest of the stars, or the burning rays of the sun although warm and beautiful, nor the quiet times in the evening that is so tranquil you can hear the clouds move … it’s the warmth of YOUR LOVE that surrounds them.
Luna begins to notices all tiny feathers floating about and gives Puck a sideways look, he smirked, “Well I could not sleep last night, I kept tossing and turning, fluffing my pillow … and a few might have escaped. Luna then brought him a box and as Puck lifted it up it was as if it were empty, but when he opened it, thousands upon thousands of feathers floating through the sky … Luna said, now all your friends, family, and especially YOUR MOM will know that you’re thinking of them. Puck noticed that there was still one feather still stuck in the box, when he blew it lifted and twirled and appeared to be glowing … Luna said, now make your wish! He bowed his head with his tiny grin and said, “I love you mom, to the moon and back … fur-ever”!
So if you look towards the sky and get this uncontrollable urge to just stand there admiring how beautiful those clouds are … Know a special little Birthday boy arranged them just for you.
All our love, Luna and her mom Nadine

THANK YOU so much for the kind words it made me feel a little better, you are a very nice person. I can tell you loved Luna so much and she was apart of you. I am glad to come to this website and people are able to undestand what I am groing through. Ive just feeling a sense of terrible guilt because I was not able to say goodbye to Lucky before he passed. This year he did not live with me and I was not able to see him that much. The last time I did see Lucky 2 months ago I noticed how skinny he was when I put my arms around him. I took him to the park and he fell like he couldn't hold his balance anymore. It made me so sad that I cried going home and knew he was not the same Lucky. The pictures I took of his face he looked so terrible:( it had to be deleted was too painful to look at. I might take up the Journal writing like you said. Thanks again appreciated it.

I know it's been 6 years since your loving Luna passed What an adorable cutie! I recently lost my precious boy Lucky and it's extremely painful so I know what your going through
09-25-2014 3:26 PM -- By: Luna, From: Happy Birthday Toby
AS YOUR BIRTHDAY APPROACHES MAGICAL THINGS WILL BEGIN TO HAPPEN …HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOBY!
… The sky remains calm and it’s a remarkable shade of blue, surrounds those big fluffy white clouds that rest upon the sky like an early morning mist, as tiny stars shimmer off in the distance. Toby begins to smile, turns to Luna and says, “DO you think they can tell we are thinking about them?” Luna boasts a huge smile and says, YES Toby”. As they continue to watch the sky she brings out a huge fluffy blanket, and as she spreads it across the meadows, all the children begin to gather … and they each look up at that amazing sky! Toby notices bright golden colored lights shimmering off in the distance, coming closer and closer, and as they do a calming sense comes over them … They just sit and watch all that surrounds them, gazing upon the vast green hills, the leaves swaying from the trees, breathe in the fragrant fresh blooms as the winds give them a little tickle … then they notice the faint sound of laughter and more and more friends gather around … and all those he loves too … and he quietly drifts off to sleep. When he awakes the sky is a RICH DEEP BLUE, as deep and wide as an ocean, and those clouds that surround the sky so soft, fluffy and white … as he lifts his face toward the stars he can feel you with him and begins to smile, “Hello mama”. Then he notices right above him a HUGE STAR and right below a tiny cabin and he runs toward it. As he walks toward to porch the star begins to glow and the front door opens … when he steps inside a calm comes over him, he knows this is home … and quietly walks to the rear garden, when he opens the door there are vast hills of green … Luna walks in behind him and shouts, “OMG this place is beautiful” … as she runs toward the deck and Toby follows her. There sits there among beautiful trees with their branches so long, lush and green, as their limbs softy sway in the breeze, then tiny lights light up around the garden as the angel fairies dance among the fragrant blooms and toward the trees … one by one all the children enter and are in awe as those tiny lights dance among the trees like stars. Luna gasps and points, “Look Toby over there!!!” Off in the distance is an orb, as it gets closer the warmth of your love keeps it glowing and growing with every passing moment till it appears in the yard like a huge ball of light and surrounds them! ... “The LOVE We Share Will Always surround them.” TOBY smiles with a huge grin on his face and says, “Hi Mama, I LOVE YOU! … With that the music begins to play, the children begins to dance; a cool crisp wind lilts them off their furry little feet till they are dancing among the stars!
Toby smiles as he looks at Luna, “DO you know when you can’t sleep it’s because you’re AWAKE in someone else’s DREAM… ” … and she too begins to smile.
After dancing, eating, playing and opening presents, Luna rolls out a hugs cake dusted with the stars that sparkle from the sky, when she lights the candles it SHINES! Toby walks toward it, tilting his head in deep thought, lifts his face with a smile, closes his eyes and makes a wish … as he blew out the candles ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY BEGAN TO DANCE … his thoughts were of you!
“For every star in the heavens is but a dream, a place, a being, a wish we make … to awake in the arms of those we love. Fur ever and always, Luna & her mom Nadine

08-21-2014 5:02 PM -- By: Luna, From: Puck's Angel Day
Puck, Thinking of you on your Angel Day and always …
The wind is blowing gently as “autumn” leaves are changing; beautiful blue, red, orange and yellow leaves … Yup, Frost blue, seems some little fellow has been dreaming and with a cool breath of frost … he’s been transforming some of the branches to winter! Oh ho hum he rubs his nose, rolls over and falls asleep … as the cool crisp breeze relaxes him and quietly puts him to sleep, Luna gets busy.
She gathers everybody and from the tops of the heavens to the green valleys below she gathers only the softest, white and fluffiest clouds and gently makes a HUGE PILLOW, then she dusts them with billions of tiny goose-down feathers and begins to sigh, “OMG is this going to be comfortable” … the clouds stretch over the sky, wider and longer still covering most of the horizon … then she looks and begins to giggle, “I wonder what our parents will see when they look up at the sky” … as she fluffs up yet another cloud … then she lifts her paw and sends those feathers floating freely through the air as they too find a comfortably place to stay … She lifts her head up and pictures the heavens in the most beautiful shades of pink, purple and blue … and then she notices a ray of golden light peeking through, she knows it’s Miss Lisa thinking about her boy and she begins to smile. Then Buddy comes in and notices the luxurious fluffy cloud, and says, “It’s big enough to support all the angels at the bridge” and laughs, then Luna points to the left, as Buddy turns his head he notices a Cappuccinos maker and a few 100 cups, hammocks set up by the beach with many hammocks, fluffy pillow and a HUGE fire pit ready for roasting marshmallow S’mores … then you hear the faint sound of “ting ~ ting ~ ting” and Luna jumps up and races to the kitchen, she opens the door and smiles, “Yup freshly baked Puck-a-roos”, softly sprinkled sugar cookies sprinkled with crystal red sprinkles that look like lil kisses. By now all the kids are helping set up for the party, decorating with tiny lights that twinkle, tables covered in linens for the feast, comfy chairs and tiny candles line the tables, and then when Luna looks up to the sky she notices all the stars gathering, and as it gets closer and closer to Puck’s angel day it makes a HUGE Candle Opera in the sky … lighting the way from our hearts to yours, so you will know through the kindness, laughter and spirit, so many are thinking of you … the love always follow.
From Day to night, to day all the kids play and are happy, Puck has been seen running through the bridge after sipping a few lattes, he’s dancing around with a few feathers stuck to his fur, as he sits by the roaring fire overlooks the cascading water from the ocean, watching each little ripple the waves make as the waves gently roll to shore … He smiles like never before, with a calming love, he stands and lifts his paw sending those special feathers soaring for his mom to find, muttering, “Never a moment when I don’t think of you or let you know I am near, I Love you Mom!” Thank you for sharing with me a very special gift, your time, love and comfort … then from the ripples in the waves you see hundreds of feathers floating … Puck looks up and notices the HUGE clouds dusted with feathers, jumps up and starts dancing with his heel kicking in the air … sending all those feathers soaring, to all those he thinks about and loves so dearly, his mom, his friends, and his extended bridge family … then he stops, looks up and notices the most amazing cloud, stops, looks and walks toward it … there amidst the seclusion of time is the fluffiest cloud ever, as Puck takes a step upon it he immediately notices how soft and luxurious it is, and smiles as all the stars begin to shine brightly in the sky, … lifting his arms high and wide, then tilts his head below and gazes upon the ray of light that stretches thru the heavens and smiles upon his mom Miss Lisa and sister Lucie, whispers, “I love you” … curls up upon the soft pillow of feathers floating upon a cloud and slips off to sweet slumber, you know his thoughts and dreams are of you Miss Lisa, his mom.
May you always remember the little things that make you smile, look to the heavens, for it is there that are dreams are waiting! Thinking of you always, knowing you are near, and the many angels who took our hearts and have them still. All our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

Dearest Nadine and precious Luna and Opal and Lily ... have been thinking of you and thought I better stop by. Nadine, hoping all is well your way. Things here are going. I don't know if you heard, but we had a wild fire up in northern New Mexico and my property was one that burned up ... it was very sad .. but Mother Nature working.
Ms. Luna .. baby girl .. how I think of you and Sammy and all the Rainbow Bridge furkids ... I know you all are happy and playing and running around and partying. How I miss you all .. and one day .. we all will be together again .. never, ever to be apart again.
Luna, please give Sammy a great big kiss from his daddy, sister Cupcake and brothers Xander and Bentley and a special kiss and hug to you, Luna.
I know you watch over your momma ... she's a special Lady and I will always remember the first days of Sammy's leaving .. your momma sent me magnets and I still have them to this day on my refrigerator ..... Thank You Nadine .....

Hello my little angel, I love you so. Some days I sit still and my mind drift off to a time and place when we were together and a calm comes over me ... it feels as if we are together again. How my arms long to touch your soft fur, watch your amazing eyes looking back at me, or see the excitement of your smile, you were always smiling. There will never come a day that I don't bring you with me, alive in my memories, my soul as "our love" dances upon my heart ... although some days are filled with tears, missing you more than I can stand, I would never change a moment ... because my life would never be the same without you. Shine on my little star, bright and so full of love, when my eyes smile I know you are with me. All my love, Mom

Hello little angel Luna…our little star shining so bright - gone for now, but never forgotten.
You left those precious tiny paw prints on so many hearts. We wish that your tail could have wagged forever. One day we will see that little swishing tail again, and I’m just gonna’ hug you and kiss you forever little girl.
The clouds are turned inside out to make fluffy beds for the dogs in Dog Heaven, and when they are tired from running and barking and eating ham-sandwich biscuits, the dogs find a cloud bed for sleeping. The angels watch over each one of them, and there are no bad dreams.
I think Stanley Coren's quote, "For those who love dogs, it would be the worst form of a lie to call any place where dogs were banned 'Paradise.' Certainly no loving God would separate people from their canine friends for eternity." I am sure we will I meet up with our babies again, so that we can thank them yet again for the unconditional love and loyalty they gave to us."
“Oh Luna”, said Shabba Lou (aka Pappa) our moms know that we have only slipped away for a while from the bonds of earth. Isn’t this great dancing in the skies on laughter-silvered wings? We've chased the wind along, and flung our ears up in the air while we were bouncing around. Up, up, and away on windswept heights with the ease of angels. Sometimes we wander around all day and never get sleepy. The days and nights pass, and ages bloom and fade like flowers here. So many years have passed since those wonderful days we spent with our moms, and they’ve also gone by so fast. There are so many things to keep us busy. We’ve swung high in the sunlit silence; and topped the windswept heights with easy grace…where even eagles never flew. Thank you for being my friend tiny one. I love you and your mom.
Nadine, lots going on here, but wanted to take time to thank you and Luna for making a difference in my life. We will be bonded forever because of our precious angels. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them. Nadine, thank you so much for remembering Shabba Dabba Doo. My heart is always with you, and I send hugs to you and the girls…and many more. Carole

Nadine & Luna,
Hello, ladies. Cinnamon and I just wanted to thank you for stopping by and honoring Cinnamon on her 2 year angel day last week. I want to thank you so much for Cinnie's birthday story, as she told me that Luna pays attention to the details, and the information Luna provided to Mommy Nadine was absolutely 100% factual!
As you know, Nadine, it only takes one look into the eyes of an amazing soul like your Luna, and you are connected to them, in ways that we don't always understand, for the rest of our lives.
Bless you, and your angelic assistant Luna, for being so kind and thoughtful on these special days for our angels, and for never forgetting that they remain present in the lives of those they left behind every day.
Bless you, beloved guardian angel Luna; Mommy Nadin & family, beloved Lily and Opal, forever.
Cinnamon & Bruce

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHABBA LOU!
Luna sits quietly on the deck watching the stars as they appear, as she gazes upon the night sky she looks upon the brightest star in the heavens and makes a wish, … you can hear her say, “Star light, star bright, the first star a see tonight ... I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight" … she closes her eyes and whispers her thoughts to the wind, and the angels heard her.
Quiet and fast asleep in his bed is Shabba Lou, but he is not alone nor lonely … among him cradled in softness are the wishes and dreams of many … knowing tomorrow is his birthday.
All through the night each fur-ever angel speak to the starts and tell stories to the hearts of the parents who love them, letting them know how much we are thought of and so deeply loved. When Shabba awakes he finds his bed dusted with the stars of the heavens, and the sky is full of big bright twinkling stars … he begins to smile when he catches the aroma of breakfast being prepared in the kitchen, a grand breakfast ... as he sticks his head in the kitchen he notices Luna busy away flipping pancakes, sizzling bacon, poaching eggs, toasting bagels, hot buns, preparing sweet juices and freshly brewing coffee … and places the HUGE tray on the table and puts a napkin on his lap, and gives him a gentle kiss ... "morning Hun". ... he SMILES, then notices laid out on a chair is a beautiful shirt, pants, and a very stylish hat as he quickly gets dressed, but before he's done he noticed a pocket watch hanging from his vest pocket, and when he picked it up and turned it over; engraved on the back read, “Time, is on our side ... all we have is time" … he looks up at her with a joyful expression and hears a knock on the door, it's his sisters and brothers ... and when Luna opens the patio doors high in the hills from the ocean to the field of dreams all his friends are waiting ... they let out a joyous, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHABBA LOU" ... and the party begins.
Remember ... all things come in in time. As Shabba flips open the pocket watch a gently melody plays and fills the air making our little ones smile. Luna leans over and gives Shabba Lou a great big KISS ... and with her eyes gazing upon his she says, "Thank you for always being there for me and showering me with your love, friendship, attention and affection" … she then smiles and Shabba begins to blush, and at that exact moment the sky begins to turns pink ... May OUR LOVE always surround you, till the day we can hold you in our arms again. ((BIG Hugs)) and moonlit wishes, Luna & her mom Nadine

Cinnamon Precious Costa
Thinking of you on your angel day, and always …
There is something to be said for a beloved soul mate and friend who touched your heart with such a kindness, their memory lives on in all the things you do … as the love shared touches your being so deeply, their expressions etched in your heart, as thoughts of them fill your mind and make you smile … the love you share lives on.
Cinnamon looks up at the sky which is such a beautiful blue and marvels at the soft white fluffy clouds as they kiss the pale blue skies, she rolls over on the soft green grass and stretches her paws … as she stretches she notices the blue skies turning purple and pink … she sits up and begins to smile as more and more of her friends gather, but as she begins to wag her tail the light white fluffy clouds begin to make a picture of their own. All the kids look up in wonder as they begin to free flow as a breeze gently touches upon them, they each look on in excitement as it lifts their souls and a smile appears on their faces and their love begins to shine from within their heart … It’s the LOVE We Share, and it cradles them in softness, our gentle touch … May it surround them always ~ till the day we can hold them in our arms again.
Peanut sits up and notices as the sun begins to set, then the horizon is filled with so many colors of the rainbow, but as the light dims the stars burst out and SHINE covering the sky for as wide and vast as their eyes can see … it’s YOUR LOVE and the love of many, as they look up they begin to smile … May the love you share and the memories you made continue to fill your mind as the love grows within your heart … till we each meet again, know they are happy, healthy and waiting. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

LUKE, THINKING OF YOU ON YOUR ANGEL DAY
After a heavy storm as the rain begins to clear, a rainbow appears. Luna walks out to the patio and lifts her soulful eyes up toward the stars as they begin to shine … and begins to smile. You see it’s her friend Luke’s Angel day today and all the kids are getting so excited.
The air is so crisp and clean, her head begins to spin as the birds begin to sing, then she starts to dance. With the breath of angels she twirls and spins, lifting her paws, watching her hair dance as love begins to fills the air … it’s meant for one boy whose angel day is today, Luke. Then Luna eyes begin to sparkle as she looks toward her trusted friend, his love and devotion has touched her heart with such a kindness, that she flutters about till the bridge is transformed. When she stops and opens her eyes all the kids gasp … “Oh my gosh, this is just beautiful!” Dangling from the limbs of the trees are crystal rock candy icicles which glisten as the wind passes beneath them as the scent of sweet smelling blooms fill the air … as their tiny paws pass through the ever-so-soft green blades of grass, with the stars above twinkling and the moon all a glow, Luna calls out to Butler who marvels at the beauty, with a welcoming smile calls to Luna, “should I get the others ready”, she nods yes.
Ah, soft blades of grass beneath their toes and all our love within their hearts Luna sends Toby to find his brother Luke … and finds him sitting upon the sand by the ocean’s edge watching the waves roll in … it is there that the stars sparkle their brightest! Toby walks up sits beside Luke, “can you feel her”, and Luke nods, Toby begins to smile and says “me too!” As they sit there watching the beams of light reflect from the ocean, their reflection sends their light soaring throughout the bridge.
JoJo and KC walk upon the sand, finding their own place to relax as Luke spreads a blanket for them to rest upon, Toby says, “Have you seen Luna yet”, but as he shakes his head no he begins to smile, “Not yet”, then Toby snickers, “I know she has something special for you”.
A few hours later Dale and Sammy were sent to walk toward the water where Luke was waiting, they just has to stop and gaze upon the calming waters with their reflection that shines so bright. Then Dale taps Luke on the shoulder, but as he turns his head notices the bridge is all “a GLOW” … filled with LOVE from all our angels as they each walk together. Through the trees that glisten and glow with crystal leaves that play a gentle melody as the birds begin to sing in song, the wind whispers as their paws dance upon the soft grass till they reach the meadow and notice, high on the hill covered in star dusted frost, above the mountain peaks all of his friends are waiting, and when he climbs to the top he notices Luna begins to smile. As she walks toward him his light begins to grow, not just a single ray but billions of tiny twinkles that light up the sky, and as he tilts his head toward his heart he can feel the love of his mom with him .
… One day, once upon a dream … Never far from our thoughts, their love remains in our heart. All our love always, Luna & her mom Nadine

“Picky Picaso” … so sorry, my mom might need glasses.
So their day continues with "Picky" Picaso looking up at the sky. As the air flows, lifting his mind and his spirits he notices blue skies above with a touch of golden yellow from the sun, then drifts toward the purple mountains kissed with snow peaks, as they lay resting upon the lush green grass they roam. But as the leaves gently blow from the trees he notices the white fluffy clouds … drifting through the sky … as he watches more friends gather and a beautiful pink sunset appears changing and introducing so many colors, filling the sky like a rainbow after the rain. He jumps up and places his paw towards the sky and says, “only beautiful can be seen by those who can picture it in their minds, as freely giving as the love which remains in our heart – their love surrounds us still. ((Hugs)) Luna and her mom Nadine
