Hi Carole. Thank you so much for stopping by on my boy Lucky's page and don't worry I know who you are. I saw Shabba Lou picture awhile ago and had to stop by on his guestbook. I am sorry you were ill and hope you are feeling better now. Thank you for your long heartfelt words it made me feel so good reading them. It has been 11 weeks since Lucky has passed and I have my good and bad days. But it's really nice to know people on this website know EXACTLY what I've been feeling. I can tell Shabba Lou was a very sweet dog as you described him as a gentleman and you had him for a long time too. And your memorial to him is very touching also especially the eulogy and memorial service is so beautiful. The Last Day Page of Shabba Lou made me feel sad because our babies don't look like themselves as we remembered them. Our fur babies were definitely our bestfriends. The memories of remembering Lucky are currently the painful part and the saddest. Especially when I look at his pictures when he was his healthy self. But I know he's looking down on me. And hopefully time will heal and meet again. What a blessing you rescued Shabba Lou at the shelter and then he brought joy to your life and your other pets who also that have passed. Thank you again for the generous amazing words Carole! You are a very kind person. I will be back on here to write on here.

I know it's been 6 years since your loving Shabba Lou passed. What an adorable cutie reminds me so much of my Lucky who I recently lost and it's extremely painful so I know what your going through.

Shabba Lou, Thinking of you as your Angel Day is here...
Luna places her loving arms around her man and gives him a warm gentle embrace, then looks in to his eyes and they begin to smile, as they say, these words, "always ... forever and a day". All our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

Shabba Lou & Carol,
Words are not sufficient to convey how very much you are loved by your Mommy Carole, Shabba Lou, so Cinnie and I will keep it short today. That, and it seems our long messages always wind up in Critters Review, never to be seen again.
So, Shabba Lou, Cinnamon & I are here to pay our respects on on your 6 year angel day, and to honor your tender, strong & loving heart, and your gracious, beautiful soul, and to celebrate the love and devotion you and your Mom Carole share for all time.
You and your angels are a part of the eternal fabric here at Critters, Carole, and so it will always be an honor to visit with your beloved Shabba Lou. You have always given voice to these most precious, amazing and unforgettable souls, AND the forever bond we share with them.
Bless guardian angels Shabba Lou, Maggie Mae, Ebony, Buster & Tina Jane Mom Carole & family, beloved Princess and Dezzy Dee, and your universe of soul, today and always.
Cinnamon & Bruce

Carole & Shabba Lou,
I apologize for the delay, Carole, but I'm stopping by today to thank and your precious angels for visiting with my sweet little Cinnamon, to remember her life and loving spirit on her 2 year angel day last week.
Between issues with the Critters site, and the emotional weight of Cinnie's angel day, it's been difficult to make honor the amazing angels here at Critters every day, and get the housekeeping I need done to Cinnamon's memorial.
You are one of those special people here at Critter's, Carole, who puts the well being of our precious canine and feline kids first. To visit with any one of your angels here, Caro;e, puts fully into perspective the amazing amount of love, and generosity of spirit, they add when we are blessed to share life with them.
Thanks to Shabba Lou and Buster boy for taking the time out of their angel schedules to personally accompany you, too. Finally, I'd like to offer my condolences once more on the passing of your beloved Tina Jane earlier this year. I'm glad I found her memorial, and that I was finally able to honor her this week. Thanks again for visiting with my Pookie, Carole.
Bless you and your family, Princess and Dezzy Dee; and your amazing guardian angels Shabba Lou, Maggie Mae, Ebony, Buster & Tina Jane, forever.
Cinnamon & Bruce
PS And my first two messages to Shabba Lou on his birthday are still stuck in Critters review!

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 cradeled 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 twll stories to the 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 kitcehn 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 freinds are waiting ... they let our 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

Birthday blessings to handsome, faithful, strong, compassionate, determined, loving, brave and tender Shabba Lou, and Mom Carole, on beloved Shabba Lou's 19th birthday.
I know you know, Shabba Lou, that words can never adequately convey the beauty and permanence of the love you and your Mom Carole share. I am thankful that Carole was blessed with a wonderful, loving son like you to share her life with, and grateful that a beautiful spirit like yours got to spend most of your earthbound years in the company of a Mom, and your amazing brothers & sisters, who loved you unconditionally.
Bless guardian Angel Shabba Lou, Mom Carole, Shabba's amazing Angel brothers & sisters, and Carole's entire family, today and always.

Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if I've gone away from you.

Carole & Beloved Shabba Lou,
I will stop by tomorrow to pay appropriate tribute worthy of you, dear Shabba Lou, but I wanted to introduce you to my beloved Cinnamon Precious Costa on her first Angel day today, June 4, 2012. I see in you and your amazing Mom Carole's other Angel babies the same abundant love, devotion and kindness that flowed freely from my Cinnamon's heart.
I read 'Shabba's Last Day', Carole, and can only say again the love and respect you share at a spiritual level with Shabba Lou, and his siblings, is beautiful and profound.
Bless Shabba Lou and all of Mom Carole's beautiful Angels and earthbound kids, today and always.
