Dear Carole,

I can't stop crying reading your story about Shabba Lou. I can feel your emptiness, and I fully realize how deeply you grieve. It is the greatest loss we can go through b/c they are our perfect friends, companions, soulmates and everything else in between. My thoughts are with you Carole. I will make contact with you on Facebook also. Hugs Carole. Hugs and kisses to Shabba Lou too.

Hi there Shabba Lou,

I was visiting Archibald's memorial, and I ran across your message. I had to come and visit you. Oh, a Very Happy Belated First Year Angel Anniversary Shabba Lou. I know how hard it is for your mommy. Just heart wrenching. We send our love, hugs and kisses to you Shabba Lou, and to your sister Ebony.

Hi Shabba Lou, I love your new page your mom made...One Year Ago Today ... Just beautiful! Today is my mom's birthday and she is trying but her face tells the story and her eyes cry. Some days just bring about the raw deep inner hurt, the same feeling intensified because you now realize the loss and the pain more clearly ... and mom also loved what you wrote on how to grieve a pet, Luna smiles, she's so talented!!! :) Well mom's back from vacation and probably will stay home from now on unless the girls can come. Hugs, Luna & Nadine. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. You don't always have to see them to know that they are there.

I always seem to end up on Ebony's page but do not want to leave out dear Shabba Lou. June must have been a very difficult month for you. I think of you often and thank you for your help with my pages. All the best.

I am so, so sorry that I missed your first Angel Day, sweet boy! I feel so awful that I missed it. I don't come to this site very often because it makes me too sad, but I want you to know that I haven't forgotten you. I hope your special day was wonderful and you had lots of parties. Carole, I am so sorry that I missed his special day. Please know that I haven't forgotten your babies. I just don't visit here often. I hate to hear that you haven't been feeling well, but I also understand. Please know that you are in my thoughts.

Hello Carole, I want to stop by to see how are things with you and your other babies. I'm sorry to hear about your brother beautiful girl,Simba. My heart goes out to him and to you too. Your One Year Ago today was beautiful. I can't keep my tears from flowing just reading it. My heart just breaks when I read the line - my heart ached when I hold your tired little body so close...and know the end was near It just breaks my heart, Carole. I can just imagine how you felt that day. I don't know whether our hearts will ever heal. Eventhough I have other fur babies with me, I still feel so empty. Take care. Hugs

Shabba Lou and Ebony, Big hugs to you both.

Hi Carole, I'm sorry I missed your baby's year, with angel wings. I don't get on here much anymore, I cry to much and get depressed as you know what I'm saying.. always know you are in my Prayers and Thoughts.. Sending you hugs...

SHABBA LOU, SHABBBBAAAAA LOOOOUUUUU! Luna peaks out from the deck and sees Shabba sitting on one of the lawn chairs and she runs as quick as her legs can carry her … and gives him a big hugs and tight squeeze and she nestles her face in his neck … she says, “I love you!” Gee Miss Carole, I'm so sorry, my mom has been out of sorts lately, can’t seem to get focused on anything, I’m going to have to have a take with her … I think that’s what she has been waiting for, and although my post is late, your precious boy is always in my heart.

Luna sits and marvels at the ever changing sky, … “As easily as the sun sets and rises each day, our days have now reached a year, but to us it seems like yesterday that they held us in their arms and told us how much they love us”, … with that Luna smiles; “our love will never fade”. As she sits back she snuggles a bit closer, her heart beats and the days go on, just as the sounds of the rushing waves leave ripples on the water, there is a beginning but no end. Luna bats her eyes as she turns to Shabba and softly sweeps the hair aside from his big deep alluring eyes ... she smiles as she gazes into them … as her heart flutters and skips a beat, she looks at him and says, "We are one as we were meant to be, for the love that is in our heart will always be” … as she gently gives him a snuggle and a sweet little kiss, a big grim appears on his face, he knows "this little girl is mine!"


All the love in our hearts always. Many hugs and tiny kisses, Luna & her mom

Stopping by to honor and remember Shabba Lou on his 1st "Angel-versary". Like I have said before, your beautiful boy is just precious. And the love and bond you shared is very touching. And any dog who was that loved had to have lived a truly wonderful life! :) My thoughts are with you on this day, and I wish you well. May you draw comfort and peace from the beautiful and joyful memories that you and Shabba Lou gathered together throughout your many wonderful years together... as I have no doubt that your beloved Shabba Lou will cherish those memories forever!

SWEET SHABBA LOU --- We celebrate you today :)

Please take care, i will be thinking of you take it esay on your self today. BIGGG HUUGGGSSS


They say memories are golden well maybe that is true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you, a million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Shabba Lou, I know I made a new page for you, and I do not usually post in your guest book 'cause you have a special journal, but I felt the urge to stop by and visit you in your guest book today.

Oh how quickly the years fly by. My heart is aching today more than I can say in words. I am at work and I've had to leave my desk three times to regain my composure. I've been asked what's wrong, and simply reply, "I AM MISSING SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL TODAY."

When I said you were born a dog and died a gentleman, I meant it with eveything in my heart. You were my adopted son, and I will always be thankful I had the gift of you and I sharing "our time" in life together. what a wonderful journey we had. For now I will follow my path without out day we can walk a brand new path together again.

I love you baby Pappa Lou, Pops, Pappa, Babba Lou, Poppy, Dabba Do, Shoppy. I'd give anything to hear your little "duck quack" bark again. I will never forget how you perfected your cute little moon-walk. I've nevedr met and will probably never meet another pup who can do "the mooner." I will never forget how Jessica at Colina Veterinary Hospital nicknamed you "pony" 'cause you'd walk in circles in the lobby. You are such a angel!!! Give Ebby a big smack on the chops for me. Love forever, your proud mommy.

Dearest Carole and beautiful Shabba Lou. I am stopping by on Shabba Lou's First-Year Angelversary. You have truly earned those beautiful Angel Wings so go soaring the skies with all your friends and especially with Ebony.

Shabba Lou, always know that your mom loves and misses you and Ebony every single day of her life .. as we all do miss you babies. Each of you hold a special "piece" of our hearts with you. Always know that each of you is so loved and so missed by so many .. especially your wonderful Mom, Carole.

Dear Carole .. I know today is a difficult day for you .. but .. always know that your Critters Family truly loves and cares for you .. I know from experience .. my Critters Family has always been there for me .. when my own immediate family could care less. So, please know that my thoughts and my prayers are with you today and always ....... Charles

Carole, the page that you created for little Shabba is beautiful, just like your "Little Man" is. We speak daily and my heart continuously aches for you over the loss of your son and Ebony, your beautiful, smiling daughter. It does even more so today. I wish there was a way that I could help shoulder your burden, your pain. I thank God, as a Christian, for the privilege of prayer. I also believe that's the greatest gift that a believer can possibly give to another. I've given to you this gift many times and will continue to do so. May God wrap His loving, comforting arms around you and console you and bless you as only He can. May He dry your tears of loss and despair and replace them with smiles and the many, many wonderful memories of your journey with Shabba here on earth and in eternity to come. I'll Always be here for you Carole, just as you have for me. You're truly one that "gets it." And for that, and so much more, I love you dearly. My best, richard (and Dot..;)

Shabba, it's hard to believe that I first heard your little "quack- quack" over the telephone two years ago. It's even harder to believe that I haven't heard it for over a year now. Although you and I've never had the opportunity to trade sugar, yet, it's important to me that you know that I love you little boy. You've impacted my life in a way that neither you or I could ever comprehend right now. But one fine day, in the sweet by and by, we'll All understand it better. Until then, take good care of Miss Ebb and Miss Dot. They need you, "Super Tropper." And so does your mommy. Blow kisses to her often. I know she'll be overjoyed to catch and feel 'em. I'll see you soon buddy. Take care, Uncle Rick..;-)

Remembering your sweet and beautiful Shabba on the day of his angelversary. I know the grief will never leave, just like you write in your memorial. But, that is only while we are on this earth. We can look forward to seeing our precious pets when we get to Heaven, and finally there will be absolutely no more sadness. May God bless you.

Hi Shabba Lou! Happy One Year Angel Day, sweetsie! Your Mommy, furbrothers and fursisters will love and miss your forever!

Carole, I am thinking of you as you travel through a surely difficult day. You always have such comforting words for the Mommies and Daddies who have lost their furbabies, that I wish I could say something to make your day a little easier.

Please know you are not alone, your critters family are here anytime you need a shoulder to cry on. Your babies, Ebony and Shabba Lou will never be forgotten! We love each of you bunches!

Hello Carole, Stopping by to wish your handsome boy happy first angelversary. My thoughts are with you and may his joyful memories brings you comfort.

06-30-2009 11:47 AM -- By: pucks mom lisa ,  From:  

i am at work crying. i cant help it. one of those days i guess. then going over pucks guestbook on page 5 there is beautiful shabba and ebony. one of pucks 1st friends. i miss my little guy so very much. i cant help but think back to those few days and weeks and time doesnt just learn to cope..i see pucks stuff every day and he is present. always in my broken heart. what you wrote i reference back when the days seem to linger. i dont know what i would do with out you and my critters family.... Carol you truly help in your own grief and heartache you reach out and help others i think more than you know. here is what you wrote from ebony...i thought i would share it with you...again... I read your post on the "Suggestions For Coping With Pet Loss" and my heart truly aches for you. I said good-bye to my angel Ebony seventeen months ago yesterday, and I still break down and cry. I miss her more now than ever. I had to attend pet grief counceling for four months after I said goodbye to Ebony. It takes a very long time to heal. I will never get over the loss of any of my babies.

It's unfortunate that people will acknowledge our grief, if the loved one we lost is a human, but they think we should heal quicker when we lose a pet. To be perfectly honest, I hurt worse over the loss of my pets than some of the human loved ones I've lost. I thought something was wrong with me for feeling like that, so I asked my counelor if there was something wrong with me, or if I was being too extreme. She explained that the love and bond we have for our pest is sometimes deeper than with humans because it is "pure" and "unconditional." They never mistreat us, leave us, judge us, etc.

We have every right to mourn and grieve for our babies as long as it takes. I've been told to get over "it", and all kinds of other things about the way I feel about the loss my darling Ebony. Yes, we move on, and eventually the pain lesssens, but the scars of our loss will always be there. They are our "adopted children."

Please know that I do understand how you feel, and my heart is right there with you. Your sweet boy is a doll! I've been a bit long-winded, but I wanted to let you know that you are not alone. Hugs to you both. thoughts are with you today. i am not looking forward to pucks 1 year coming up in august .. be there for me ok...Carol you truly are an anel as is ebony and beautiful shabba lou. Thank you from the bottom of my fractured heart.
