02-20-2008 11:00 PM -- By: Leigh and Little Bit, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit Memorial In my daily struggles trying to deal with the loss of my precious baby girl , I do alot of soul searching and bible reading. I found another passage in the Bible I would like to share with you all here today that again confirms to me that our babies are indeed in Heaven at Rainbow bridge waiting for us. This is a powerful verse and I hope you dont mind that I enter in here. May it comfort you as it has comforted me.
I found great news in our bible that positively announces to us that we will be together again someday my love. Romans 8: 18-22
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will give us later. For ALL creation is eagerly waiting for that day when God will reveal who his children are. Against its will, EVERYTHING on earth was subjected to God's curse. ALL Creation anticipates the day when it will JOIN God's children in glorious freedom against death and decay. For we know that all creation has be groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
What ever is or has been on earth, IS in HEAVEN!
My deepest thanks to all here along with your babies that I have had the honor and privilege to meet. I cant say enough about how helpful you have been for me and my Little Bitty. Bless you all!
Leigh and Little Bit

02-20-2008 6:46 PM -- By: Jennifer Perry, Pet's name: Pepe I read a few postings and they are all so beautiful and well said. I just lost my first puppy that I bought when I was 15 yrs old last night. He was 14 yrs old. I knew his day would be coming up soon and I thought I was prepared but boy was I wrong. It has really surprised me how hard I am taking his loss and how much I mourn over him. But then again, he has been with me for 14 yrs of my life. Thank you to everyone who has such beautiful things to say on this website; it really helps the grieving process. May all your lost little ones rest in peace.
02-20-2008 1:34 PM -- By: spoileddogz, Pet's name: Simba To everyone that has lost a best friend. My tears & heart are with you in your sadden days ahead. I still cry 2 years after my baby has left me.
Never forget the great days you had with your buddy & laugh at the bad, realize that the shoes they shredded aren't gonna matter when you loose your friend. Laugh with them more & forgive the little things...shoes, socks, pillows & sprinkler systems can be replaced...Remember the unconditional love that they bring you. Remember they are there when you end a relationship or loose a human friend. No questions asked, they are there for you in your time of need whatever that may be. So when someone wants you to leave your pet behind, remember they would never leave you behind...
Cherish the moments you have because you never no when the moments will be gone.

02-20-2008 3:50 AM -- By: Linda (Ceese's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial There are days I come here to learn about other people's special babies. I often cry. Sometime I laugh. Many of you have great stories and had some critters that were real comedians. Everyone who has a memorial here truly understands that losing a pet is as difficult as losing a loved one and some ways more difficult because the bond is different. I don't cry for the critters; they had great lives and lots of love, but I do cry for their mom's and dad's. As sad as it is to loss a pet; we are the lucky ones. People who don't have critter's miss out. We get the greatest gifts from our pets and is sad when they are gone, but we are blessed to have had a connection like no other. Our babies are lucky too. They've had good parents and lots of love; not all critters get that luxury.

02-18-2008 11:10 PM -- By: Annette (Stimpy's mama), Critters.com memorial: Stimpy Memorial Linda, I know celebrating your birhtday will be difficult, bittersweet at best. I also just recently had a birthday pass, my 40th. It was the first birthday without my boy, Stimpy. It's hard to put on a happy face and celebrate when you don't much feel like it. I sorta went through the motions more for my family's sake than my own. But I know Stimpy was there with me when I began eating my cake, as he usually would, hoping I would give him some! I know your beautiful Ceese will be standing right beside you as you make your birthday wish and blow out the candles. She loves you very much and would never miss any of your birthdays. I wish you a very Happy Birthday! You and your sweet kitties are always in my prayers,God Bless!
02-18-2008 2:53 PM -- By: Linda (Ceeses's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial Normally talking about my age is off limits, but tomorrow I will be 55. It will be the first birthday without Ceese in my life since I was 39. I will miss her. I am beginning to reach the place where I am feeling grateful that I was able to have my two favorite cats in my life for so long. I still feel sad, but it is getting easier each day. I hope the same is happening for others who have recently lost their babies. Certain critters really grab our hearts. Ceese was one of them.

As I see the Gates of Heaven
And I know I'm headed home
I see the great St. Peter
But alas, he's not alone.
The tears have blurred my vision
But I'd know him anywhere
He sits and waits so patiently
He knows I'll soon be there.
I drop to my knees and call his name
He responds with bounding glee
He whines and he cries
The joy is in his eyes
He's waited so patiently.
I know it's truly Heaven
For that it's plain to see
My faithful friend and companion
Is once again with me.

02-16-2008 6:29 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Sorry I hit enter before I signed. The post below was from me.
02-16-2008 6:29 PM -- By: , Pet's name: Sandy I am so sorry you lost your sweet Soxy. How sad that she developed cancer. I can only sigh relief that she did not suffer long.
I soooooooo understand your pain. I lost my beloved Nvwati in Sept. to a massive and unexpected heart attack. My other dog, Mkwaa, was so depressed when he passed away. The two of them were like two peas in a pod. After his death Mkwaa stopped eating, wasn't interested in playing and would pace the house looking for her brother all the time.
I had Nvwati cremated too and have had Mkwaa smell the ashes and I tell her it is her brother but she doesn't understand. I don't think they can smell any part of their sibs in the ashes to be honest. I do still have Nvwati's teddy bear which has not been washed so I let her play with that from time to time.
We do hang out together on the couch often, with Nvwati's urn held close to our hearts and I speak to her of her brother. His name is mentioned around our home almost daily (out loud). Take care.
02-16-2008 3:12 PM -- By: Sandy, Critters.com memorial: Soxy Memorial I lost my little baby dog just 3 days ago. She got sick so fast and then we lost her. Just 3 weeks ago she was fine. She got a lump on her neck and I took her to her Dr. We both thought that she had gotten bitten by a bee or something, as she was always chasing them. But he did tests and found that she had stage 4 cancer in her lymph nodes and it had spread to her liver and spleen. Just 3 days later she was gone. I am having such a hard time dealing with losing her. I guess it will just take time to ease this pain .
Her doggie sister Sadie keeps looking for her. She wont sleep under her own blankie, just Soxy's. I dont know how to help her thru this. She was cremated and I will be able to bring her home in a couple of days. Someone told me to let Sadie smell the ashes and she will understand. Will this help does anyone know. Thanks so much for listening.
02-16-2008 9:56 AM -- By: Maria , Critters.com memorial: Stacey Memorial Last Night Around 8:30 Colorado time i had gotten a visit from Stacey. I could hear her do he wining thing that she did when she wanted people to know that she was there and to pay attention to her. I thought it was cool to know that she was there with me. I could also feel her. Not phsycaly but her spirt i was able to feel with me. It had comfort me. She had stayed there until i feel asleep.
02-15-2008 2:33 PM -- By: Cheri (Coco, Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial It's three months today since I lost my sweet girl. I pray for God's blessings on all of my new friends here at Critters whose prayers and encouragement lifted me up during my darkest days. I don't know what I would have done without you. You will be my friends for life and I love you.
Because you care, each task will be much lighter,
Each burden so much easier to bear;
And each new morning's outlook better, brighter,
And each new day more blest, because you care.
Because you care, each joy will seem completer,
Each treasure doubly dear and true and rare;
And in my heart I'll always find it sweeter
To want the higher things, because you care.

02-15-2008 4:16 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Oh Judy! Im home now and the guestbook entries are all approved hon. Thank you so much! So sorry to have confused you. Hugs, Amber
02-15-2008 4:14 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial awwwww thanks (((((((((( dolliebug!)))))))))))
02-15-2008 4:12 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Thank you all for the Valentine's wishes!
I am just back from Winnipeg now - I was there to appear on a national television show, having won an award. Brrrrrrrrr it sure is cold there!
Yesterday I found myself in the same Animal Hospital my sweet boy was taken too following his death - this time to pick up Mkwaa and Yukon Jack as they had been there boarding while I was away. The Vets there were all so excited about Yukon Jack. They all laughed and said "Yup Nvwati definetely sent him to you!". Interestingly I felt no sadness being there yesterday. I Know that although those wonderful people who work at Banks Animal Hospital only met Nvwati moments after his death on the sidewalk, they truly treated him as if they had known him his entire life, and treated him and I with utmost respect and dignity during that horrific time. They absolutely LOVE Mkwaa and Yukon Jack and I am very fortunate to have my furbabies in their care.
Good news! Mkwaa's cancer does NOT need to be treated. It is NOT doing anything, "Not going anywhere". Whew! What a relief!!
I almost expected them to tell me she has to lose weight but they didn't so she's ok for treats still lol.
Thank you all for the wonderful Valentine's messages. Nvwati says he had a great time at the Barkery and had plenty of butterfly kissies for all the gals.
02-14-2008 11:21 PM -- By: Leigh and Little Bit, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit Memorial I wish to Thank each and everyone who has remembered Little Bitty and I on this Valentines day. Little Bit and I want to extend our Happy Valentines to each of you also and if we missed you on your memorial site, we are so sorry. All of you have been so very helpful and understanding for us as we are dealing with our loss. This Valentines day is an especially hard one for us as it ALSO commemorates our 1 month anniversary since Little Bitty went up to be with all the other little furbabies in Heaven. But I must say I dont think I would or could get thru this without each of you here. Thank you so much.
Leigh and Little Bit
02-14-2008 9:25 PM -- By: Kendra ( twisters best pal), Critters.com memorial: Twister Memorial First of all, Happy Valentines Day to everyone at critters, Secondly i posted a new song on twisters page, plwease check it out. Have an awesome day!
A piece of advice: Just say their name and they wont EVER be forgotten
02-14-2008 9:19 PM -- By: Molly Demchak, Pet's name: Maggie Remember, if dogs were the teachers you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you've had enough.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY.
That's what dogs teach us.
