Hi Carole...I read that yesterday was Shabba Lou's 3 month Angel Day. I know you lost Ebony & Shabba Lou close together so your heart has double the pain. I wish I could take it away but just know that I and the others here at Critters are here for you and understand. I also appreciate you coming around and saying HI, it is so nice whenever someone remembers us and our fur babies. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers...xoxo Joy
P.S....I love you Ebony & Shabba Lou & your Mommy! xoxo Joy & "The Kids"

Little Shabba,what a beautiful,
beautiful tribute your mommy Carole wrote for you..You Blessed her life as much as she Blessed yours Shabba,and now, together with Ebony,you can both Bless her with those special shared memories only you knew together..
when i lost my Caleb,i didn't know
how i was ever going to survive in this world without him because the emotional emptiness was bottomless..you shared 13 wonderful years and those memories must now see mommy Carole through those most difficult times when she is missing her babies most,and it is in the remembering of every single moment of that time that mommy Carole will know--> she needen't say she was Blessed,for it just was,and her heart was the better for knowing this,as mine was with my Caleb...what a world this would have been if we had never known either of you...your memories and our love will never,
ever fade,or grow old with time..
now we can both picture our Beloveds as young and enjoying renewed health once more,and illnesses such as congestive heart failure and kidney failure do not exist in either of our worlds,and you are free,happy and romping with many,many new friends
and on those special days,you surround us with your Spiritual Peace,and our hearts rest easy..for now,Calebs daddy will say to rest well and know Peace in that love that your mommy Carole is sending your way on "butterfly wings"..each one a treasured memory,for each one is love..rest well beautiful little Angel,rest well.....Carole,our babies are all together,safe,and in Peace.....

Happy 3 Month Angel Day Shabba Lou ... I didn't realize when Luna gave you that soft loving kiss from your mama that you've been away from her for 3 whole months ... I'm sorry Carole. I know you miss your boy, I miss my girl too, and what you said about loving them more and doing more, I can relate, I wish it too, but I know both of your precious angels are keeping close tabs on my little one, just as we care with eachother ... Know thoughts of you, your precious babies are always in my thoughts and in my heart. Love always, Nadine & Luna

I am just checking in on you. I read what you wrote below and it brought me to tears. I know how you are and you gave plenty of hugs and kisses. I feel the same way though, that we could have overwhelmed our babies with them. I gave Koochy a lot but still think I could have given more. I sure miss her just like you miss Shabba and Ebony. Its almost been 10 months without her. I worry about Cosmo, but soon I will be home with him again, when baby comes. Baby is due next week. Take care and keep in touch.

Hello Carole and little cutie, Shabba Lou! Thanks for stopping by Stimpy's memorial and leaving such a sweet message. It's so nice to know I have caring friends to help me through the tough times. I hope I can be as helpful to you when you need it most. God Bless you and your little baby, Shabba. Take Care! I love you sweet Shabba! xoxo

Today marks three agonizing months without you my little teddy bear. Shabba I love you so much honey, and I miss you more with each passing moment. I hurt so bad right now Shabba. I think about having to make that heart-breaking decision to relieve you of your pain and suffering. I really don't know what's worse...a sudden loss or having to make that dreaded decision. I've felt them both now. I can't get over you and your sis being gone.
The holidays are almost here again. My heart is already breaking, and the tears roll when I think about "two socks" that will be left untouched this year. If only I could have one wish or prayer come true...I'd turn the clock back and wish both you and Ebony back here with us. I'd do things so different...more kisses and hugs, you'd hear mommy say I love you so many times you'd probably get tired of it...more treats...more walkies...more everything.
I'm sorry I have to go boy...I cannot see through my tears. I miss you...oh how I miss you. Be sure and catch all the kisses I blow into the sky sweety...please share some with Ebony. Luv your proud momma.

Shabba Lou, you are darling. So lucky to have such a wonderful mom like Carole who loves all her critters so very much. Carole, I so much appreciate that you stop by and see Ceese.
Ebony reminds me so much of my Greta who is now over 11 and showing signs of nearing the end. I often visit Ebony for comfort on Greta's bad days. Linda

Hello my little Shabba Lou. I need you so bad honey! I am hurting really bad right now. My heart is broken. If only I could bury my face in that soft neck of yours. Oh Shabba I wish I could hold you again. Things that happen day-to-day can bring all that "raw pain" to the surface so easily. I try to be so strong for everyone else, but I guess underneath it all...I am still so very fragile. Thank you for being my boy...I love you baby, and miss you more than you could ever know. Please come visit me in my dreams honey...oh how I need you tonight.
ALLOW US TO GRIEVE
I am sorry if I don't grieve correctly.
Please share with me the standards you use to judge.
In the beginning, if I held my emotions, it wasn't enough.
Yet now you do not wish to be reminded of what I can never forget.
How can one judge someone else’s emotions?
Who are they to say what is correct.
Where does one find the expiration date for grieving their loved one?
Is our pain any less as time goes by?
We are able to get through our good and bad days.
We have had practice now in how to put on a act.
Yes, the world is a stage and I am an accomplished actress.
I am playing the role of my life and I must give it all that I have.
Nobody wants to see my tears now.
No one wants to acknowledge that I still hurt.
Everyone wants life as it used to be. Can't they see that so do I?
Where are the books that tell us when we can feel and when we cannot?
Is there a set formula that we must follow?
Will there be a test we are expected to pass?
Why are we not allowed to have my own feelings?
Until the end of my days I will grieve my losses.
I am sorry if you think I am doing it wrong.
It will be done at my own speed.
They were my children, and not yours.
Please...allow me my grief! ~ author unknown ~
There are many emotions we are hit with in life. Grief is the hardest, filling our hearts with wrenching pain. No one can know grief, until, they lose their loved one. To never hear Shabba again, never see his sweet, sweet smile and sparkling eyes. There is no hurt like it. I wish there was a way I could tell him now how thankful I am that he loved me. I experienced a love and happiness with Shabba that words alone cannot describe...and sometimes not even family or friends understand. A piece of me died the day Shabba and I said goodbye, and another piece of me died when Ebony and I said goodbye.
So, let me grieve my way...give me my time…because I will never get over losing them. I can only learn how to live with this pain. Unfortunately, memories and pictures are not enough. Grief is an emotion that hits so deep, it cannot be explained in words alone.

A Dog For Jesus. I wish Someone would have given Jesus a Dog, as Loyal and Loving as Mine. To Sleep in His Manger and Gaze in His Eyes and Adore him for being Divine, as Our Lord grew into Mankind, His Faithful Dog,Would have Followed him all through the Day. While He Preached to the Crowds and Made the Sick Well and Knelt in the Garden to Pray. It is Sad to Remember that Christ went away to Face Death Alone and Apart, with no Tender Dog following close behind to Comfort its Master'a Heart, and when Jesus Arose on that First Christmas Morn, how Happy He would have been. As his Dog Kissed His Hand and Barked in Delight, For the One who Died for all Men. Well the Lord has a Dog now, I just Sent Hime Mine. This Old Pal so Dear to Me, and I Smile through the Tears on this First Day Alone. Knowing They're in Eternity.Day after Day, The Whole Day through. Wherever My Road Inclined. Four Feet Said "Wait I'm Coming with You!", and Trotted along Behind. Written By: Rudyard Kipling.

But after he was given the medication he started acting like his normal self walk good and running so looks like all the prayers helped my baby out.

Hi Shabba, come sit with me my furry little man (Luna rests her head on his shoulder), Just look at the stars tonight, they are absoluetly beautiful, the sky is so clear, look how many there are! Look here comes your sister with Dollie, come join us please! Look at this amazing sky, look at all those stars, it's as if the heavens were lit up for us tonight!

"May God shed his grace upon thee, and heal the hearts of the ones we left behind, we might be out of sight but we are never far from their thoughts, comfort them in their time of need, and let they know they were truly blessed ... and for some more than once.
