Thinking of you today, Shabba Lou, and your mommy, as I so often do. I salute you on your second Angel Day. You've always been her "little gentleman" and will continue to be so always. Looking forward to being reunited once again now seems to have taken on a new reality since Caleb's daddy, Charlie, joined you little monkeys. The reality of how "real" reality is. Enjoy your special day little boy. Shabba, you still have the sweetest little face, little smile, ever. I hope to see it first hand soon. Many hugs and lots and lots of love. Uncle Ricky

You and I started this journey together over 3 years ago. It is a difficult journey, made even more so for those of us who take in more than a single fur baby at one time. You have given a loving home to so many more than most of use that your burden has been greater then ours.
I hope you know how much your love and caring meant to the kids you took under your wing and that I and so many more admire you and your strength to do so.
Today we commemorate the day your dear friend Shabba Lou left this world and wish you nothing but the best as you remember your years together.

HAPPY 2ND ANGEL DAY SHABBA LOU!
What a day … the sky is bright and a cool breeze floats through the rainbow bridge … as our little ones get ready fro another party they notice that the clouds seem to float in the air like cotton candy, and as a breeze blows over the horizon the clouds separate and all you can see are the luscious blue skies … Luna smiles, jumps up and heads to the patio … and can see things are underway … ahhh my precious Shabba Lou, and what a sweet day it is to!!!!
Before she heads out she walks to the balcony, looks to the horizon and blows a kiss to Miss Carole, with lots of love in your eyes and her heart full of happiness she whispers … “Miss Carole, I know he is with you, in your thoughts, mind and spirit, and he is also with me … his brothers, sisters, and all our friends too … please know we will forever watch over you, as she blows a kiss to the wind all of a sudden she hears a knock at the front door, as she opens the door she is greeted by a few friends wearing bright smiles … they have arrived to help set up for the party but before they do they all send loving thoughts and warm wishes to you too, knowing what a caring special lady you are, and how much they all love you.
But back in his room one lil angel boy is getting ready for his special day … His sisters and brothers are there helping him get dressed, as he bends over to find his favorite blue Swede shoes he smiles … there is going be a lot of dancing going on and I’m gonna be ready; and she lips his feet in. Then his sister Ebony places a charm locket around his neck, this is the key to unlock all of life’s mysteries and the heart for all who love him … at that very moment as he slips it on Luna begins to smiles … you see he’s had her love all along, and the love of all his family and friends at the bridge … all of a sudden you hear Bing, Bong, Bing … the clock in the town hall chimes … all the kids head to the patio of Lunetta’s where a party is about to begin. They arrive one by one, as they reach the entrance the room is beautifully decorated in white with tall columns draped with long flowing clear baby blue curtains, flowered pots are scattered here and filled with the sweetest tiny white rose buds and as each child takes a whiff, they begin to embrace the soft sweet smell and begin to relax. The dining area is set in a circular pattern and all the little ones take their seats … from the shore you can hear the clear crisp sound of the waves rushing in … and the reflection from the water is cascading aross the patio like a prisim; reflected it’s light toward the center of the room for all to see … it’s beauty and elegance makes all our little ones giggle, they know how special today is, It’s Shabba Lou’s 2nd Angel Day, and although his love will always warm our soul, we know how much his mommy still misses him so.
After an amazing feast the simple white cake is wheeled out to the center of the room, decorated with tiny blue blooms and green leaf design which delicately grace one side of the cake, while little white candles are placed all around … Shabba Lou has a HUGE smile on his face … as she watches the lights flicker … all the while feeling within him all the love we still share; Luna quietly mentions; “go ahead …make your wish”. He stand quiet for a moment searching inside for the love in his heart, he closes his eyes and bend his head … and with a deep breathe blows all the candles out and smiles … “do you know what he wished for?” … look deep within your heart, for the answer is there. All our love always, and all the countless wonderful angel that grace the rainbow bridge … for they make our lives whole, and the new place we roam a home . All our love always. Luna & her mom Nadine

HI SHABBA LOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
WOW What a day! Luna smiles and snuggles up next to her little man as they fall back asleep they relive the day and his party...
Knowing is was a special morning when Luna lifted up her head, as she was pondering she thoughts as she heard the faint whispers of all our little ones, and a smile came upon her face … she knew we were all getting ready for another birthday at the bridge, but Luna knew this one had to be as special!.
So with the sun shining and the help of a few friends she positioned the clouds to grace the sky as beautifully and softly as they could, as soft and fluffy as the little white clouds could be, … but right in the center she left a clearing, that way Miss Carole could look up and know that were watching her, and all his brothers and sisters too.
As Luna was busy preparing a feast fit for a king who walks through the swinging doors to the kitchen but Shabba and Buster wearing an apron and a smile, she can’t refuse those beautiful eyes and says ok you can help me but no sampling … They was ecstatic, Shabba surely thought Luna or Ebony would push him right out of the kitchen but she just smiled and went on her way letting them each sample a few tasty treats. His eyes looked on with excitement as Luna pulled a huge Turkey from the oven with all the trimmings … She looked at Shabba and Buster and said, “No Samples, Not until it’s carved”. Well you never saw a man sit so much like a gentleman waiting … Luna cut of a piece especially for him and told him ok, and gave one to Buster too … Ok, time for you to go home Shabba and get dressed, I put something on your pillow for you to wear … with that he licked his lips, gave his sweetie a big kiss, smiled at his sisters and brother, and was off on his way home to prepare for the party. Ebony and Maggie looked at Luna and said, “You have a real soft spot for him,” as she looked up their was a radiance in her eyes and a great big smile appeared on her face … she turned her head and with all the love in her heart she prepared all the finishing touches.
Shabba so excited about the day took the scenic route walking past the huge lake and stream toward home … when he got there on his pillow as a beautiful crown … as he picked it up it was as light as a feather but sparkled like a thousand stars in the sky … he also had a crisp cotton loose shirt and a pair of snappy pants and a vest … he looked like royalty! All of a sudden their was a knock on his door … Yes it was Ebony making sure he was ready … and they were off on their way.
The day was so bright, from a distance all who were waiting for him knew he was coming … you see the crown was special, it was made from all sweet thoughts and dreams, kind wishes and our never ending love … they carry it with them always.
As Shabba and Ebony approached Lunetta’s it was transformed to a castle, tall pillars, lots of green vines that twinkled like fire flies and a cool breeze surrounded them … When they entered all their friends and family were there … in the center of the room was a huge table filled with an amazing feast; “Turkey, stuffing, sting bean casserole, sweet potatoes, white potatoes whipped into a creamy mash, golden gravy, corn and veggies, … his mouth started to water” … All our little angels took their seats … Luna transformed the patio to a banquet hall, floating above was sheer crapes of silk and satin, linen to block the rays but letting the light in, and although it was daylight the sky twinkled like the stars in the heaves … Their plates were filled and soon their tummies too … They walked along the star studded path along the beach with was shaded by trees, they danced and played in the sunlight, their was a special glow that surrounded the rainbow bridge. … “It was our love and they could all feel it! When the day wound down and the stars swept through the sky …their was a feeling of overwhelming joy … as if they knew and could feel the love we share even still, every lasting and forever growing.
As Luna lifted her head she saw Shabba Lou smiling, she snuck away to prepare him a breakfast feast … while he slept on the balcony of Lunetta’s the sun rays warmed his soul and the cool crisp wind from the water left him in a slumber state, until his nose started twitching … when he opened his eyes there was his girl setting the breakfast table, as he gently hopped up he smiled … as they look at one another they knew … “a love time could stand still for … and it surrounds them even still”.
Carole, you know in your heart they will always be there to watch over you. Only a few people I have met have ever given to me what you have, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, your friendship and caring ways means the world to me, to us! Many hugs and moonlit wishes, may each and every one come true. Your friends, Luna & her mom Nadine

"Perhaps they are not stars in the sky,
but rather openings where our loved ones
shine down to let us know they are happy."
~ (Old Eskimo Saying)
Carole -- Shabba Lou certainly was a very lucky dog to be so very loved and cherished. And the years of love and joy that you gave to him is the everlasting gift that he will always carry with him forever in his heart. He is most definitely a lucky little dog to have been blessed with a loving Mom like you (and I know Shabba would emphatically agree!). And if he could, I am sure Shabba would tell you that throughout his life... YOU were his greatest gift of all! May the wonderful, happy memories of your beloved Shabba Lou always bring comfort to your heart and a lifetime of smiles to your face. My thoughts are with you today, and I wish you well.
