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

HI Nadine and Luna, Shabba and I wrote to you, but our message was sent to review. I hope you got it. Luv and us from us all.

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

06-02-2014 3:41 PM -- By: Luna, From: Luke, for your Angel Day
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

Stopped by to say hello to Miss Luna!
Nadine, I read your post below to me and Dale and it brought me to tears - so many memories that flood the soul! I swear at times it was just yesterday we played with and loved on these angels - just yesterday! I honestly do not believe a day goes by that I don't think of my boy - and I know the same is true of you and your precious Luna!
Oh, we may be coming your way at Christmas - give the girls some love for us!
05-15-2014 6:00 PM -- By: Luna, From: Luke, as your Birthday approaches
Luke, thinking of you on your Birthday, and always.
Luna is almost finished with the party preparations. She walks toward the balcony and gazes upon the evening sky and notices a bright star flashing and smiles, she knows its Luke and he’s thinking of his mom.
Luna puts together a basket of edible delights and walks along the shore toward the field of dreams where Luke is sitting with Butler, Jojo, Dale, Sammy and Toby. Luna smiles, “You know she can see that star, right!” Luke smiles, “… and she can feel our love too!” Luna thinks for a moment, while she unfolds a blanket for all the kids to rest upon. Dale helps Sammy set up a few tents, as Toby gently fluffs up some pillows and helps Butler hangs a few hammocks. Milo and Princess Baby girl start looking for branches to place in the fireplace, as more and more fur-ever angels gather.
Luna placed Dale is in charge of the balloons. As he filled them up he let them GO … but they did not fly away, they just gently filled the sky resting beneath the clouds like a silver lining. Luke grinned, “This is going to be some party!” as he began to wag his tail. Just then Miss Lauvern touched her face as a cool breeze brushed against her skin leaving her face with a tender smile. Luna noticed the expression on her face and said, “You know she can feel you”, Luke smirked and boasted a HUGE GRIN as bright rays of light filled the sky like shooting stars! Miss Lauvern closed her eyes and made a wish, Luke heard her.
Thinking of you and all your fur-ever children, knowing they are here and watching over you. ((Hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Two little fur children, with the blackest of ears were born on this 5th day of May. Little "fur girls" that had hearts of Gold and thoughts as pure as the heaven above. Little fur-girls - each of whom had a mommy waiting for them and who did not even know that these puppies with the blackest of ears were coming to them. Luna and Nadine, Eliza Belle(Lizzie) and Sherri, two very special teams, teams that not even in death can be broken, Teams that will be forever more. Very Special Teams. Very special relationships. Forever more.......
Much love and hugs to Luna and Nadine from Lizzie & Sherri
