Sammy, How I Love You
Monday, March 26:Hello my beautiful Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. making my weekly stop-by. Hoping each of you are doing wonderful up at Rainbow Bridge with all your friends.
The weather is finally getting a bit nice and was outside yesterday, Sammy, cleaning the yard and was thinking of how you used to love to watch me clean the yard and you'd walk by and smell the flowers and just enjoy the time we had together.
Always know that you three "Are My Special Angels" for all of eternity. Always keep watching over your sister, Cupcake and brother Xander. Kids, next Sunday I may not be able to post to you because I will be flying to Australia for vacation .. BUT .. always know you will be in my heart and soul. Watch over your sister and brother while I am gone .. because you know your dad ... always worried for them. I know I can count on you to watch over them. Sending my love always. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, April 16: My beloved Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... stopping by as I have missed a weekend or two when I went to Sydney .. though I know you were always with me, Sammy, I wanted to thank you for always loving me as you do.
Know that each of you .. is loved and missed so much by your dad. Sammy, you are loved by many, son, as I read all the beautiful messages my Critters Family left for you while I was gone.
Your sister Cupcake and brother Xander are doing wonderful ... were spoiled rotten by Aunt Judy and Aunt Nancy ... so now I have to watch Cupcake's weight as I don't want her to have trouble getting up or with her legs. Always keep watching out for your sister and brother.
Always know your dad loves and misses you so very much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, April 23: Hello My Special Angels - Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... how I miss you three kids, but I do know that you are always with us.
Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. I come today to ask you to please, please watch over your sister Cupcake. She injured her left-rear leg and I don't know if she tore her ACL or not. She couldn't get up when I returned Friday from work, so I picked her up in my arms and carried her inside the house. After a few minutes, she got up on all 4-legs, but she was really limping very bad. I gave her some meds hoping it would help and it has, but she is still limping.
If she continues, I will have to take her to be checked out and find out what she did to herself. Please watch over her while I am away at work. I depend on you kids to take care of your sister Cupcake and brother Xander. They just play too darn hard and I think she twisted her leg or possibly tore her ACL.
Sending you many hugs and kisses and always know your dad loves and misses each of you so much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, April 30: My beloved Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. I wanted to come by to ask you three kids to please watch over your sister Cupcake tomorrow (Tuesday) as she goes through major surgery to correct a defect in her rear left leg. The right leg will have to have surgery in the future also.
Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. your dad is asking you from deep within his heart to please take good care of Cupcake while she is in surgery. Please ask the Lord to guide Dr. Gruda's hands in surgery and that Cupcake's recovery be good.
Kids, you know how much your dad loves Cupcake and is so worried about this surgery .. but she has to have it to be able to run and play and be a young girl. You dad loves each of you so very much and I know I can count on your three beautiful kids.
Sending all my love to you and watch over your sister Cupcake as she goes through surgery tomorrow. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, May 7: My Beautiful Special Angels Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. making my weekly stop by to thank you .. each of you .. for keeping an eye on your sister Cupcake as she recovers from surgery. She has been quite well. The first night after surgery was awful .. she whined and whimpered .. but we made it through these days.
I ask each of you to keep watching over your sister. Always let her know you are with her watching her. Thank You kids.
Xander has been a tropper too. He's been watching her and not getting all excited as he used too ... I think he knows his sister does not feel well.
I ask you kids to always watch over all of us. Always know that your daddy loves and misses you three so very, very much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, May 14: Oh my kids ... You all are My Special Angels .. how I miss you so but know that each of you is healthy and happy .. running and playing with all your friends at Rainbow Bridge.
Your sister Cupcake had to be taken back to Dr. Gruda yesterday. She kept licking her incision and opened it up again .. so he had to re-stitch it and put lots of bandages back .. just like she had her surgery all over again. How your daddy worries for this little girl.
Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... please continue to watch over your sister and little brother. They seem to get into messes lately. Cupcake hates being crated so she gets bored and I know that's why she licked her incision. Keep watching over Cupcake and always let her know you are with her. Sending all my love to each of you. Always know I love and miss you lots. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, May 21: My beautiful Angels .. Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... stopping by on my weekly visit. Oh, how your daddy loves and misses you .. each of you so much.
Your sister Cupcake is doing better each day. I had to buy a special "cone" so she wouldn't take her stitches out .. and I call it "Cupcake's Donut" which looks like a donut that goes around her neck .. and boy, the money I spent is well worth it.
I hope you all are having a grand time these days. Today, I cut the weeks as Xander ran around .. and I know Cupcake was angry she couldn't be outside with us .. but I have to keep her confined. Please keep watch over her and always let her know you are always with her.
Always watch over us ... as I know you do. Always know that your daddy and your brother and sister love you too. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, May 28: You Are My Special Angels and how your daddy misses you these days. Things here are just awful with these wild fires .. kids, please gather all your friends and start doing the Rain Dance and send us some much-needed rain.
Please keep all the firefighters safe too as they are doing all they can to turn these fires off. Always watch over these individuals who protect us.
Keep your watchful eyes out for us too. Watch over your sister Cupcake and brother Xander .. as they need to be guided most of the time as they love to get into mischief.
Always know that we love you .. each of you .. so very, very much. Know that you are all "My Special Angels." Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, June 4: My dearest Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... I am a little late in posting to you three. Always know that you are very loved and very missed by me. Lately, we have been under horrible weather conditions from that fire so I ask you kids to please ask your other friends to do the New Mexico Rain Dance and please send New Mexico lots of rain to get these fires out.
The weather is horrible and it is difficult to breath and your sister Cupcake and brother Xander are having a hard time enjoying being outside. So please keep doing the Rain Dance for us.
Know that your daddy loves each of you so very much. You are always in my heart and in my thoughts. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, June 11: Dear Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... making my weekly stop by to let you know that your sister Cupcake must be feeling better these days .. she jumped up on the bed .. to which I had to scold her to not jump. I take her this Thursday to see Dr. Gruda for a checkup. I am hoping she is able to go on longer walks.
I want to take her to a lake or river so she can swim and exercise her legs. Xander is doing wonderful also. He is such a beautiful little boy.
I want to thank each of you, Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M for always watching over your brother and sister .... I know you are always with them, protecting them and letting them know you are always near by.
Always watch over your dad and brother and sister .. keep sending us those signs that you are near by. Sending all our love to you three. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, June 18: Dearest Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. another week has gone by and how I still miss you. I will forever Love and Miss you .. until we are together again .. I will just have to come visit you each week.
Today is Father's Day and I know you are sending me lots of wishes .. you always showed the love you had for your daddy .. and you three made me so proud to be your daddy. Always know that each of you are my Special Angels in Heaven.
Always watch over your sister Cupcake and Xander. Cupcake went to the vet Thursday and he released from crating and how excited she is not to be crated. Dr. Gruda said that she could commence normal activity .. BUT .. the worred daddy that I am have confined her to just the patio area where she can come outside. Though your little brother Xander jumps the wall and goes out to the main yard and Cupcake hates that she cannot be there .. but I just want her to heal properly and well.
Well, my beautiful Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .... always know that your daddy Loves and Misses You so very, very much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, June 25: Hello my Special Angels Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. making my weekly stop-over. Hoping that you three beloved furkids are doing wonderful and I thank you for always watching over me, Cupcake and Xander.
Your sister went swimming yesterday and she had a blast. It was so fun to watch her get in the river and paddle around and walk in the water. She needs to exercise that leg. Your brother Xander tore his nail off his left-rear leg .. so I didn't take him as he is limping and lifting his leg .. and he was not very happy that he couldn't go. When we got home he was really "telling me off" in his own little way but as soon as I gave him a chicken treat, he forgot what he was telling me.
Always keep watching over us. Always know that your dad loves and misses you so very, very much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, July 2: Good Morning to my three Special Angels .. how I Love and Miss you. Lately I have been missing you three beloved furkids. Always know that your dad loves and misses you. Each day I think of you and "think" what you all are doing up at Rainbow Bridge.
I hope you all are having lots of fun with all your friends. Always watch over us, though, as we always want you near us. Your sister Cupcake is doing great after her surgery .. in fact she's back to her old ways of running like a bullet after Xander.
Xander tore his toe nail .. but he's feeling better and running around like a bullet too. It amazes me to watch them both playing ... though I think of you three all the time.
I ask you furkids to gather all your friends and keep on doing the New Mexico Rain Dance .. we need so much rain .. it is hod and dry here these days. Please keep dancin' the New Mexico Rain Dance ... Thank You kids.
Well .. until next week .. always know your dad loves you. Watch over us and mostly your sister and brother who I worry when I'm not around .. but with your watchful eyes .. they will be fine. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, July 9: My beloved Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... just making my weekly visit. Hoping you three kids are doing great and that you continue to keep watching over me, Cupcake and Xander. Your sister Cupcake is doing so great after surgery .. she is running around like nothing ever happened .. but I have to keep on her so she doesn't injure herself.
Xander is doing great also .. just very, very picky on his food. He is the first furkid that I've had that is picky .. but I still love him very much.
Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. how I miss you three kids .. so much. Though I know you are healthy and happy and have many friends ... I will always love and miss you so much.
Keep watching over us and always remember we love you lots. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, July 16: Well, my beautiful Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M, your daddy turned 56 on Friday the 13th .. but it was not an unlucky day .. it was a great day for your dad. I spent it with your sister Cupcake and brother Xander and how they showed me the love like you all used too.
Though each of you came into my mind on my birthday and knew each of you were with me in spirit. Thank You my beloved kids for always showing me the love and knowing that you are always watching over me, Cupcake and Xander.
Always know that each of you all are "my Special Angels" and I know you watch over me ...... Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, July 23: My beautiful three beautiful Special Angels ... making my weekly visit to let you know that you are so loved and so missed by me. I've been busy working outside and doing things that need to be done .. and your sister Cupcake and brother Xander are always around watching me ... reminded me so much of you Sammy .. as you never would leave my side.
Cupcake and Xander watch me .. then walk off to try to catch lizards or whatever they think they can catch then they come back to make sure I'm still around. We had a nice weekend .. playing out in the yard.
I'm getting the camper trailer ready and the truck wired so that we can take a few days and go up to the property .. remember Sammy .. you loved going to the property...we will do this in your honor. How's that son?
I know you are always with me and always watching over us ... so I Thank You so very much. Keep it up. Ok. Love and Miss you so... Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, July 30: Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. here I am again on my weekly visit. I hope you three beautiful furkids are doing well. We are doing well here. Cupcake and Xander are so beautiful .. they always want to be near me when I'm outside working on the utility trailer or just working in the yard ... they remind me so much of you, Sammy, always wanting to be with Dad.
Oh, how I love and miss you three .. so very much. I know you are always watching over us .. and I thank you for that.
Always know that you three "Are My Special Angels" and how blessed I have been to have you in my life. Always remember your Dad, sister Cupcake and brother Xander love you very much. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, August 6: Hi my beautiful Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M, making my weekly visit. I hope you three have been doing well and having a great time with all your Rainbow Bridge kids.
Your sister Cupcake and Xander are doing wonderful. Cupcake is "back to her old self" .. running like a bullet .. though I have to tell her to be careful as I do not want her to injure herself. Xander loves jumping the patio walls to get to the main yard and Cupcake hates it as she cannot jump the wall .. which I am glad she cannot do.
We have been getting the much-needed rain .. but surely not enough. One of the wells on the property went dry .. so we have to haul water for watering .. but that's fine .. remember when you went with me Sammy .. I bet you do.
Always know that your daddy loves each of you so much and how I miss you too and always watch over us. I saw the beautiful double-rainbow yesterday and I instantly thought of you three ... I LOVE YOU ... Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, August 13: My beautiful Angels Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. just making my weekly stop-over to let you know how much I LOVE and MISS each of you .. but you already know how much I do.
Your sister Cupcake has once again injured herself so she is limping and if she continues .. I will have to take her to the doctor to get checked. Please watch over her always and always watch over Xander too as he is a little jack rabbit .. the way he runs so fast and your sister tries to keep up, I think she hurts her leg.
We also went for 500 gallons of water today so we can have water to water the trees and plants .. don't want them to die because these are the trees you helped me plant, Sammy, remember you were digging away for me .... oh, how I remember those days.
I LOVE YOU three kids so very much. Watch over us. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
Monday, August 20: My beautiful kids Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... just stopping by to make sure all is well with you three beautiful kids. I know I don't have to tell you each time I come by .. but I will anyway .. that I LOVE and MISS YOU three so much. Thank You for always watching over your sister and brother ... as they tend to get into mischief.
Your sister Cupcake is feeling better these days after injuring her surgery leg .. Dr. Gruda said she probably just "sprained" the surgery leg and is now on the mend. Your sister and brother play so rough and so hard sometimes I have to scold them.
Keep watching over them and always let them know you are nearby watching over them. Always know you are loved and missed. Dad, Cupcake and Xander
