Hi Shabba, I just stopped by to see you, precious boy. I know that you and Ebony have found one another and are having a wonderful time getting reacquainted. Ebony is probably introducing you to all of her furry friends, I hope my Minnie included!
Carole, your memorial is more beautiful and heartfelt every day. The photos of your last day with Shabba really tugged at my heart. It made me wish I had done the same. It truly showed the special love you shared with your baby. In his final moments, he was not alone, but with his Mommy who will miss him terribly!
How are you holding up? Do you need anything? Can I do anything for you? Please just let me know, o.k.? Hugs, Stacy

Hello sweet boy... am just stopping by to let you and your mom know you are both heavy on my mind and in my prayers.
What a precious little face!
I know your big sister Ebony, and Nvwati and Yukon Jack and all the other beloved furbabies at the Bridge are treating you well and you are no longer sick.

Your words of comfort brought me much healing in the days following the loss of our beautiful Tidbit. I printed them and carried them with me, to pull out and read when I was having an especially tough time. I still read them on a daily basis.
Now I'd like to say how sorry I am for your recent loss. Shabba is a sweet, darling, beautiful pup whose life was made wonderful by you. It's affirming to know that God has placed such special people as you on this earth to not only love these babies so much but to also eloquently bring comfort to those of us who have been hurting so badly.

Oh my God, what a wonderful tribute to a real sweetie. So much love. I'm so sorry for your loss of Shabba. What a lucky dog he was to have had such a wonderful mommy to love him and give him such a good life. He looks like such a big Teddy Bear.
Remember that he is at peace now with no more pain. God is watching over him and taking care of him. That's all we could ever really ask for. God Bless You!
Love, Kim & Rusty

My heart aches deeply for you as you try to cope with the loss of your sweet Shabba Lou. He was/IS a beautiful soul. I can feel your pain, and want you to know that you aren't alone in your grief, as I am here to share it with you.
That's the hardest part of this kind of grief, it's so lonely. Everyone sees our fur babies as "animals" and can't quite understand that the loss is tremendously painful. All the routines we had, are no more. All that unconditional love, is now gone, and our hearts are broken. The silence is maddening, wanting so much to hear those little paws dancing across the floor. Time will heal our open wounds, and we'll be left with a bittersweet scar that will serve to remind us of a most wonderful love. To know the love of these sweet, God sent souls, is truly a blessing.
Keep Shabba alive in your heart until the day when you will once again reunite with him. Kindred spirits always reconnect.
God Bless you and comfort you today.

Carole, I never believed that there was anyone in the world capable of loving their little baby as much, or like, I do my Dollie Gurl. You proved to me that what I believed was wrong. The Good Lord truly blessed your "little old man" Shabba and your beautiful "lab-a-dor angel" Ebony with His very best when He selected you to be their earthly mommy. I have never in my lifetime met a more loving, a more compassionate, or a more caring person or parent than you; a person or parent with a more tender heart, a heart that I know is now broken more than I can possibly comprehend. I've been here to visit little Shabba many times, leaving no note, but always leaving tears. He's such a pretty little boy, so pretty. What I wouldn't give to reach down and scoop him up and give him teddy bear hugs and sweet kisses, to hear him do his unique little "quack" bark. Hopefully that'll come to pass one day. I want you to know how honored I was to walk with you and Shabba through his last days. And although there's no comparison to your emotions when you had to let him go, when I received your call that I knew was inevitable, I felt as if I'd lost a very good friend also. May God bless you Carole, for giving your boy the very best, for saving his life and for making it whole. Since I've known you, you've always been in my daily prayers. You'll continue to be, even more so. May God's grace blanket and comfort you, not only today, but always. I love you Carole. I love you Ebony, I love you Shabba. And because I do, my life is so, so much richer. Your friend, always, richard

I am sorry for the loss of your little baby boy Shabba Lou. I bet Ebony is showing him the ropes, and playing, happy to see him, like my Gretchen surely did for my Bailey when he left me. They will be patiently waiting for us so that when the time comes we will get covered with kisses. Then we shall walk together never to be separated.

I love you so much Shabba Lou. I know your heart is beating healthy again...your lungs are clear, your gums are nice and pink, and you can run again...for that I am happy.

I am so deeply sorry about your loss of Shabba. Your story about how you two found each other and your incredible journey together is so touching and special. You truly are an angel here on earth for all that you do and have done to protect and save animals. Your Shabba Lou is such a cutie, I just love his pictures and his big expressive eyes. May you find peace and comfort knowing that he is watching over you and protecting you from heaven above. His heart is filled with all the love that you gave him, and he and so happy because he was, is and always will be with you.
God Bless and Hugs, Nuri's Mom

Carole, I am so deeply sorry that you lost Shabba Lou. He was so handsome, not ugly at all! As difficult as it is right now, you know that he is with Ebony as well as the other babies that you lost over the years. You have been a godsend to so many furbabies! Because of you they all lived very full and adventurous lives compared to what might have happened to them if you did not intervene on their behalf. You gave each of them such a loving home!
Your memorial, although not yet finished, is very touching and most heartfelt. I could not help but cry while I read through it. I felt like I was going through the agony with you. I hope that in working on Shabba's page, it helps some of the pain go away. He was indeed a very special little prince and I am sure you will miss him forever.
If you need anything, I am an email away. Try to stay strong, sweetie! You will get through this!
Many hugs! STACY

Carole, I'm so deeply saddened for you because of the loss of precious Shabba Lou. What a sweet and cute boy. I can't imagine him looking "ugly" because he's such a cutie in his pictures. Well I guess that shows how love can transform someone. It's so precious that he chose you. Carole, you have such a huge and loving heart. God bless you for giving all these babies such a loving home and wonderful lives. I pray that God gives you an abundance of peace and comfort. We all love you and are here for you.

Dearest Carole...I am so sorry for your loss of Shabba Lou. What a beautiful memorial you created for Shabba Lou...as you did with your other beloved pet.
Thank you from my heart for always sharing your family with all of us...especially me.
I know Shabba Lou and Ebony are running and playing with my son Sammy...and they are all restored to good health.
Carole, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Carole,I know you are hurting beyond description. He is absolutely adorable. Anyone would fall in love with that face. Your memorial to him is so touching. The pain that you are feeling now is a testament to the love that he brought into your life. You have given so many little ones a wonderful home filled with love and I know you received much love in return. That love will stay with you forever. It never dies. They make us better people and we live our lives to honor them. They continue to live through us. Someday you will receive one of the most excited welcomes that Heaven has ever seen. You will be smothered in the love and kisses of all of the little babies you loved and cared for in your life. They will be waiting with bated breath and when their eyes meet yours nothing will be able to hold them back. What a wonderful day that will be. Please know that you are in my thoughts. I'm as close as an e-mail if you need me.

Hi Carole, I am so sorry for your loss of precious Shabba. Your heart must be broken in half. Losing Shabba so soon after Ebony must be devastating. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Shabba is such a sweety. He is now with Ebony, I am sure. Take care and try and stay strong. Hugs.

Carole, you did very good, and Shabba Lou Turner would be honored at what you have written. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, as you go through this hard time. May God bless you. Please Read "The Dog's Prayer" it will give you so much comfort and healing.
Shabba Lou Turner, play hard and run free at Rainbow Bridge.
