MERRY CHRISTMAS DUKE AND THE FUR BABIES IN OUR FAMILY WHO ARE IN HEAVEN. LOVE YOU SO MUCH. xxxxxxxoooooo

Thank you for your kind words on Sydney's page. I read your memorial to Duke, and sat and cried but it was a good cry, because by your words and memorial I know that you know how I feel over my precious baby Sydney having to leave me. This Christmas has been so very hard missing her staring at the tree -then at me- then back to the tree- as if to say ohhhh mommy see our pretty here? I am blessed by having been allowed to know her, to be her mommy, and to be taught by her to have the strength to let her go in dignity and give her back to God, who I feel sent her to me in the first place. Merry Christmas to you and yours, and with friends like you on here-- each of us-in our grief, and friendship- ease our hearts. Bless you!
Fran/aka Syd (in rememberance of her)

Hi Janice I hope you and your family have a wonderful day today and as we open our gifts know that the best gift of all is that the ones we lost are watching down on us and smiling, knowing that they are with us even though we can no longer touch them. They are in our hearts. Merry Christmas. Henry

Thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot. I wanted to wish you and Duke a Merry Christmas. I'm sure Duke, Crusader and Paladin are playing together and having lots of fun. We will see them again one day.
Your memorial site for Duke is wonderful. I love it. What a great friend he was. You are a wonderful Mom.

The Christmas Angels....
Hush now, can you hear the Angels singing?
High up in the frosty midnight air?
Voices ringing, singing, songs of Christmas,
Happiness for all the world to share.
As we count the days.....
filling all our homes with light and love,
Angels share these special times of gladness,
Celebrating with us from high above.
As the snowflakes float like stars from heaven,
Angels touch them softly, one by one,
Giving each one a gentle Angels kiss,
Snowflakes sent with love for everyone.
When we gather ‘round to sing sweet songs,
Each of us with heavy hearts,
In the sky, the Angels all sing with us,
As on the first Christmas long ago.
By our sides, our caring guardian Angels,
Look out for us each and every day.
So, however far from home we travel,
Loving Angels help us on our way.
When we help and care for one another,
High above the angels see it too.
Little acts of kindess,
makes all our Angels smile.
As dusk falls, our Angles fly above us,
Lighting all the stars up in the sky.
When you see a silver star shine brightly,
Then you know our Angels are nearby.
Angles sing their songs of love and friendship,
Songs about our happy times and the
Love and warmth that loving friendships bring.
As the daylight fades to gentle shadow,
Soft moonbeams shimmer, silver-white,
Tender Angels watch us while we sleep,
Keeping us safe through the moonlit night.
Hush now, can you hear our Angels singing?
The Sweetest songs of peace and love
From heaven up above.
Christmas songs of hope and joy and wonder..
Filling all our hearts with love…
Written by Claire Freedman, Gail Yerrill.
look to the heavens...

thank you so much Janice for stopping by and for your kind words...I thought I had a grip on this but its hard looking at his stocking and I finally packed up the rest of his things...I keep the box by my bedside it makes me feel that he is close to me..its as if the other dogs know ..cause either Pep or Gracie will lay in his spot on the bed..they lay around it ..but not directly on it...I miss him so much. I know everyone on here has faced this at one time or another...Its just so hard and it hurts so much...I try to be there for my family but I can't...and I know the worse thing to do right now is be alone...but I have all I can do to go to work...I just wish the holidays would hurry and get over....wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday....

HELLO SWEET DUKE, Just stopping by to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A FANTASTIC NEW YEAR. You and Sparkman have your stockings hanging on a cloud I guess since there are no other places to hang them. Sparkman told about the party you will have tomorrow for Baby Jesus' birthday. Wish we could be there with you. Janice, you and your family stay warm and well. Love and thanks for all you do. Angel Sparkman and Ruth

I'm Spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this Year
I see the countless Christmas trees,
Around the world below.
With tiny lights, like heaven's stars,
Reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular,
Please wipe away that tear.
For I'm spending Christmas,
With Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs,
That people hold so dear.
But the sounds of music can't compare,
With the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no words to tell you,
The joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description,
To hear the angels sing.
I can't tell you of the splendor,
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas,
With our Savior, face to face?
I'll ask Him to light your spirit,
As I tell Him of your love.
So then pray one for another,
As I lift you eyes above.
Please let your hearts be joyful,
And let your spirit sing.
For I'm Spending Christmas in Heaven,
And I'm walking with the King.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all over Rainbow Bridge
Not a critter was stirring, not even Hammy Sagar
The stockings were hung in the meadow with care,
In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.
The critters were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of rawhides danced in their heads.
And Heidi in her kerchief and me - Rameses in my cap
Had just settled down for a long, long, long night's nap
When out in the fields there arose such a clatter,
Puck sprang from his Condo bed, and so did Rocky and Dollie, to see what was the matter.
Away to the window Caliya flew like a flash, with Rosie, Bob M, and Sammie close behind
They each tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave a luster of midday to objects below.
When, what to Fayeroe and Max (PA)’s wondering eyes should appear
But a big huge red sleigh and eight oddly shaped reincritters,
With a little old driver so lively and quick,
Maddie knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
"Now, Wallace! Now, Windsor! Now, Dale and Bonnie Kraft!
On, Sammy! On, Gabby! On Bailey and Gretchen!
To the top of all the condos and beach houses, to the top of the wall!
Now, dash away! Dash away! Dash away, all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the housetop the coursers they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and Saint Nicholas too.
And then in a twinkling Kia and Max (Canada) heard on the roof,
The prancing and pawing of each big and little paw.
As Luke drew in his head and was turning around,
Down the chimney Saint Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His eyes - how they twinkled! His dimples - how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And Max (MI) laughed and so did Cassie, when poor little Luna almost fainted.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave Baci and Misty Rose to know they had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But Tippy, Saada and Duke all heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!"
The Critters all stood there with smiles aglow, as each one nodded from one to other. "We all Love You Mommy and Daddy", "Please Don’t be sad any more", "Please now Be Happy".

Janice and Duke .... wishingyou and your family a very Blessed and Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Christmas is a time for love
The love that filled your heart
You were such a special gift
That in my life won't part
The times of love and joy remain
They never go away
You keep my heart so centered
Forever and a day
You brought a special Christmas gift
You shared it through the years
The laughter and the peace you gave
Shall always keep you near
The times in life we put away
Within a treasured place
Are gathered in a gold bound book
That fills a gentle space
In searching for a piece of you
There’s much that I can find
For in this life you were the joy
Of love that truly binds
And so this Christmas I shall seek
The joy that you acquired
Holding on with all my might
The love that you inspired
For you were loved by many
With every passing day
The heart of Christmas that we seek
Is now a breath away
I whisper words that you will hear
Within the soft cool breeze
A plethora of gentle thoughts
That put my heart at ease
When I awake on Christmas day
It's you that I shall hear
Wishing me the happiness
You shared with me each year
Time and space will have no bounds
For you are in my soul
The beauty of your love inspired
Through every story told.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR DUKE! Big hugs and kisses... Saada
by Terri Onorato
A flutter races through my heart
like wings of butterflies
it pulls ever so lightly
stinging tears come to my eyes.
An old familiar feeling
like a memory tucked so deep
it stays forever with me
it is mine alone to keep.
Four precious paws from heaven
did encompass me forever
and with woven strings of angel dust
tied our hearts together.
The final breath was taken
the last heartbeat echoed faint
a loving tug on heart strings
was felt through storms of pain.
This tug was but a message
that was heard yet left unspoken
assurance through the hurtful loss
the bond would not be broken.
As wings of angels whisper
and the chimes begin to sing
a bond is strongly deepened
with the tug of our heart strings.
