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!"
HAPPY ONE YEAR ANGEL DAY MY SWEET SHABBA LOU, I LOVE YOU!
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
I ONLY WANTED YOU
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 you...one day we can walk a brand new path together again.
I love you baby boy...my 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 doll...my 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
aches for you over
the loss of your
son and Ebony,
It does even more
so today. I wish
there was a way
that I could help
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,
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
memories of your
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
Shabba, it's hard
to believe that I
first heard your
quack" over the
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
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
right now. But one
fine day, in the
sweet by and by,
better. Until then,
take good care of
Miss Ebb and
Miss Dot. They
need you, "Super
Tropper." And so
kisses to her
often. I know
she'll be overjoyed
to catch and feel
'em. I'll see you
soon buddy. Take

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!

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 heal...you 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.
carol....my 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.

Bridge Called Love....
It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.
06-29-2009 8:07 PM -- By: deb and KIA, From:
Carole, Special thoughts to you tomorrow from my heart. I know what your babies mean to you and that our hearts never get over our lossing them, we just learn to adjust to live with out them ... Happy Angel Day Shabba Lou Turner may you soar with the angels. An angel's first year in heaven.
Please don't weep for me no more
Don't let grief consume your life.
For I am in a state of bliss
No sorrow or no strife.
For death is not the end of all
It's but the very start.
I have left my love with you
To hold within your heart.
It's not a year without me
It's been a year with God and glory
It's not the end of a life
But the beginning of my story.
For I have not left you
I am with you everywhere.
All the things we used to do
I'm by your side to share.
For I am always near.
So the loneliness that you feel
Please try to turn around.
For the author of my life
Has brought me to hollowed ground.
My life among the angels
Was what God planned for me.
Please accept that He knows
I'm where I'm suppose to be
and will be there to greet you Mom on your arrival day

Hi Sahbba Lou and Miss Carole, (Luna blushes)as she shakes her fluffy tail with excitement, actually her whole body begins to quiver ... then she rushes up to Shabba Lou and nestles in his arms .... (ahhhh as she looks deeply in to his eyes), he begins to hold her closer and closer ... wait a minute, Luna turns her head, OMG I forgot my mom was back ... Both begin to blush as they wak off hand and hand to sit upon the beach and watch the waves ... WE LOVE YOU!!!!!! Always, Luna and & her mom
Hi Carole, It feels like i've been gone a long time, it began a few days before Luna's one year AD, and then her Birthday, and now I'm back from vacation??? ... time is noting more than time, and some days it passes by so quickly, but the love in our hearts are here to stay forever, and ever and ever.... I'm so sorry to hear that Gene's lost his girl, I know how your heart must ache yet again. I will speak to you tonight or tomorrow and play catch up. and I have to say I love Shabba Lou's new pages, so heartfelt and touching, it's as if your feeling crept right from inside you and positioning itself upon the page, it was your heart speaking. Many hugs and much love always, Nadine

CAROLE, SHABBA LOU, EBONY, WE ARE HOPING CARA IS DOING OK, and we thought we would stop by and leave a poem for you Miss CAROLE.
If all the stars fall from your sky, and you don't know what to do;
Just reach down deep inside your heart, I'll be waiting there for you.
I'm as close as your next heartbeat, and within your heart I'll stay; I will be there when you need me, I will never walk away.
If your burdens become heavy, and they seem too much to bear; You know that I will share your load, I will always be right there.
Always in the background, and it is there I'll stay; Until the day you call my name, I won't be far away.
I will be there in the sunshine, as it shines upon your face; When you feel its warmth, remember me, I'll be waiting in my place.
I will be there in the soft breeze, as it dances 'cross your skin; So quietly I'll be there, like a whisper in the wind.
So if the stars fall from your sky, and you don't know what to do; Just look for me inside your heart, I'll be waiting there for you.
