Just stopping by to say hello to Duke and Miss Janice, hope you are doing ok Janice, I send you some thing about Pete The Moose, The State here wants to have him destroyed and we are all ralling for him, just to let you know,,,,,,,They come into our lives for such a short time-
a time we wouldn't trade not even for a dime. ,,,,,,,love you sweetie
Then before you know it the years have flown by
and then all of a sudden we're saying good-bye.
It wasn't that long ago we said our good-byes.
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
into God's loving arms; in heaven above.
Over the days we've shed many tears
but the memories we have will live on for years.
We feel your presence and we know that you are near
You're keeping us safe and calming our fears.
We think about memories from years past
when you were young and strong and ran so fast.
We remember all the great times that we all had.
How you always made us happy never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest years we had.
We'll always look back on them and never be sad.
We look forward to the time we'll be together again
and we thank the Lord for such a great friend
Now you run and play up in Heaven above
cradled in God's arms covered with his love.
Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day
we come down through the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we'll never forget
because to us you're one very special pet.
You're like a star in the dark of night
always watching over us with the Lord's light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend
who will always be with us even to the end.
We'll always remember you the way you were-
one big lovable, huggable pile of fur.

Walk with me.
I knew you would have to go one day and leave your loving home.
I knew i would have to say goodbye and you would leave me all alone.
But now you're gone what can i do, for i miss you dont you see.
My heart is torn in two for thee and the joy you gave to me.
I thought i heard your bark today
I turned around to see
But my eyes were sore and blood shot as i was crying just for thee.
So guide me now through the years ahead
Walk with me every day and protect me and watch over me.
Until my dying day.

The sky is filled with Angels
With puffy lacy wings
The remnants of God's beauty
With treasures they now bring
Each one of them a Guardian
That travels in the sky
To watch throughout eternity
Their parents from on high
Smiles that come from Angels
They fall like crystal rain
Eases earthly burdens
Lifting all life's pain
Halos so astounding
That glitter gold each day
Following their loved ones
In such a perfect way
Wings in gentle breezes
That fall from up above
Kissing every parent
With everlasting love
Angels soar through heaven
With everlasting light
Looking down from heaven
Saying their "goodnights"
Kissing all who loved them
So gently on the face
This life's tender mercy
Each parent can embrace
Wings and shiny halos
Travel from on high
Surrounding all their loved ones
They never say good-bye."

I'll remember you
When I've forgotten all the rest,
You to me were true,
You to me were the best.
When there is no more,
You cut to the core
Quicker than anyone I knew.
When I'm all alone
In the great unknown,
I'll remember you.
I'll remember you
At the end of the trail,
I had so much left to do,
I had so little time to fail.
There's some people that
You don't forget,
Even though you've only seen'm
One time or two.
When the roses fade
And I'm in the shade,
I'll remember you.
I'll remember you
When the wind blows through the piney wood.
It was you who came right through,
It was you who understood.
Though I'd never say
That I done it the way
That you'd have liked me to.
In the end,
My dear sweet friend,
I'll remember you. Lyrics by Bob Dylan

Dear Janice and Sweet Handsome Duke,
I just wanted to stop by and say thankyou so much for the Birthday Wishes that you sent to Max on his 1st Birthday in Heaven, we both appreciate your kind words as well.
I know I haven't been on Critters of late as I am finding it extremely difficult, totally tearing me up inside. I think as the 1 Year mark comes closer it is tightening a grip on my heart more. I want you both to know that just because I don't post often, doesn't mean that you both aren't in my thoughts and prayers. My Critters family has been so wonderful to Max and myself and I truly appreciate it. I am just having such a tough time is all and I'm not sure what I was expecting with the loss of Max, but I never in a million years thought it was going to be this hard. Please take care, Both of you. Hugs from Corrie and Max

Dear Janice and Sweet, Precious Duke:
Thank you so very much for your comments on Sparkman's Guest Book. You are such a sweet friend to us. I am sorry I didn't get back with you sooner, yesterday was one of those bad days. My husband and I had decided it was time for our 24 year old horse, Suzanne, to go to the Bridge. I called and made arrangements for a guy to come out at 1:00 and help us. At 11:15 I went looking for Suzanne, went all around our fence line and could not find her in her favorite places. So I headed back to look behind her shed and as I passed by the pond, I heard her calling me. She had slipped in the mud and fell into the pond. I do not know for how long she had been there. Then I had to leave her all alone and go to the house. It broke my heart to tell her I would be right back. She was depending on me. My neighbor took me back to the pond and I slipped in the water beside her and held her head up so her nose would not be under water. I tried moving her and pulling her but I could not budge her. So my neighbor and I sang to her, talked to her and soothed her as best we could. I stood in that cold water (she was cold) for almost an hour before the men got here. I had put a blanket under her head and had my foot under her head so she would have her head out of the water as best as I could. It was so horrible - she depended on me and I could not help her at all. She is buried between two trees facing so she can see the sun rise every morning and I can see her grave from my kitchen window. She was 24 years old - we had for 14 of those years and she was terribly spoiled. I was going to bring her to her shed and take pictures and give her treats and food and talk to her, but that did not happen. I feel so bad because I could not help her. Anyway, she is with Sparkman and the rest of the Bridge Kids and is happy and healthy and running in the lush meadows of Rainbow Bridge. Thanks for being such a dear friend. Love Ruth and Angel Sparkman and Angel Suzanne I do hate the month of January.....

Hey Duke!!! Tell you mom that my mom has new Valentine pictures posted. Help yourself, if you want.
Night nite, sleep tight.
01-20-2010 9:34 PM -- By: Maddie/Sherri, From: Ma. USA
Thanks for your post. Yes, I think this NEW page will be a good thing, IF it gets off the ground. I think the title needs to be more descriptive of the page. Right now it is SHARING & CARING for our current fur-babies,(IT ALSO SAYS NEW) Many people are confused about if the page is FORUM or not, because THAT is where the idea started and THAT is where the NEW page was introduced.
So, come on , ask some questions or try & help answer some. two ways to do this,1.)Post an answer to a question on THE NEW PAGE, and or 2.)Post an answer to a question in the persons guest book. I think BOTH is great, that way the person sees the answer right away AND when it comes through review, everyone can get the benefit of an answer to a posted question. OR post a QUESTION, OR post some interesting info. you have on a food or product, I just posted on the new page,(IT IS UP) about the use of APPLE CIDER VINAGER,(organic, of course) in our dogs diets,(cats, too, although I do NOT know as much about it in the feline)
I think so many of us want to go beyond grief and communicate by sharing ideas on health&well being, pet products etc. and lets face it, hopefully we have learned so much we could be sharing during our fur-babies illness, and this info. alone may bring closure to a person STILL wondering. Maddie had an autoimmune illness and I would like to know more about it, more of what COULD have been done. My Cavilier, Lizzie has very prominant eyes, therefore, eye issues and frequent infections, Mandy is Cavichon,(Cavilier X Bichon), 8 mos. old and I am SO worried about all the immunizations. She also has motion sickness.
I want to be in a positive frame of mind, now. I have Lizzie & mandy to raise, and I want the very best for them, I know there are many others like me. I think you are one.
SOoo..bring on the questions OR answers-we HAVE to get this off the ground, we JUST have to!

My dearest Duke,
I had a dream about you last night (as you know), and I woke remembering that you had come to me in my dream. I cried b/c I was so excited to see you again. It's been a while. I miss you so much Duke, and I love you more than words can tell. Thank you for coming to me in my dream. It was so wonderful to see you again my dearest boy. Kisses and hugs forever.
Love, hugs and kisses to all our fur babies family at Rainbow Bridge, including Samuel and Snowy.

Don't Grieve Too Long”
Don't grieve too long, for now I'm free.
I've followed the path God has set for me.
I ran to Him when I heard His Call.
I swished my tail and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To bark, to love, to romp or play.
Games left unplanned must stay that way.
I found such peace, it made my day.
My parting has left you with a void.
Please fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life has been full, you've given so much,
Your time, your love and gentle touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your head and share with me,
God wanted me, He set me free!

Janice, Duke and your furbaby family, I wanted to Thank you and your friends for stopping by Daisy Mae's page. The folks here at critters are truly a Blessing. I appreciate all the kind thoughts, words and prayers. It has been rough, esp. this time of year, around the holidays. I've lost pets before, but this was the longest relationship so maybe that's why its so difficult. The grief support from you and others like you has really been a godsend, Thank you, again, sincerely glenise and daisy

MY FOREVER PET
There's something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart -- it needs to mend.
Though some may say, "It's just a pet,"
I know I've lost a friend.
You've brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante,
A friend I won't forget.
You'll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.

Your time on earth has reached an end
Our home will never be the same
For memories of you greeting me
Will always linger and remain
Your napping spot, your feeding bowl
Your toys are all still scattered
Your life on earth as my best friend
Tells the world how much you mattered
And now my dear beloved pet
One last command I send
Please wait for me in heaven
As my eternal friend
