 Machita and mom Diane, YES, I believe you heard her, the same thing happened to me on several occasions. I heard mylittle girl bark and I woke right up and I was alone, then again after I got Lily I heard her again, I looked and found ily on the other side of the room sleeping, this all took place the first few months fater she passed. The only a few months ago I saw her thru the shower doors, as I wiped my eyes she was gone, I called to my other girls and Opal showed up, she is smaller it was not her, and it was not Lily ... I believe they travel thru time, hear our thoughts, know when we speak of them and smile when we do ... we carry their lovewith us every day, when they leave and take the journey, they DO bring us along. Sending many hugs as you know your precious girl is having a grand time at the bridge celebrating her birthday with her brother and all her friends. Thinking of oyu both today,sharing the love always, Luna & her mom Nadine.

It continues to be an honor for Cinnamon and I to spend time with you on your special days each year, beautiful Machita, as we remember & pay tribute to your luminous, strong, graceful and loving heart and soul, and the everlasting love you share with Mom Diane and family, on your 19th birthday today.

My thoughts & prayers remain with you and your family, Diane, and your irreplaceable, unique and beloved sweet lady and angel Machita, at this time.

It's Cinnamon's Dad, Machita, and even though I've seen you a few times now recently, on your angel day and with your brother Flapper on his birthday last week, I am still moved & inspired every time I visit with you here.

Machita & Family,

Bless forever & always beautiful, gracious, loving, smart, determined, faithful, knowing, compassionate, appreciative, caring, loyal, innocent, brave and gentle lady Machita, and her family, on beloved Machita's 4 year angel day.

As you know, Machita girl, Cinnamon and I continue to visit with you on your special days each year, but since the Critters web site was changed on July 1, 2013, the delivery of messages to your memorial here has become much less certain than it once was.

Today, Machita, Cinnamon and I are here to pay our respects, and to honor your vibrant, unbroken, powerful, tender and true spirit, and the life and love you share with your family, on your sacred 4 year angel day today.

My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family, Diane, and your unforgettable, dear and precious daughter and angel Machita, at this time.

Bless guardian angels Machita & Flapper; Mom Diane and family, and the universe of souls, on four legs and two, this day and all the days to come.

Machita & Family,

Today, generous and gentle Machita, on the eve of your 17th birthday, I am here again to celebrate your gracious, joyful, loving and radiant heart and soul, and the love and devotion you share, eternally, with your Mom Diane and family.

Beautiful and sweet Machita, we mark a special day on April 20th, the day in 1997 when you were introduced to the world, and began the journey that allowed you to share so many years here on earth with your loving Mom Diane.

My Cinnie told me you were there with your brother Flapper on Tuesday, the 15th, for the Rainbow Bridge celebration on that day, his birthday, so please say hi to your brother for me today.  I can feel, even from this great distance, the love that you both have for your Mommy, and for each other.  It is a beautiful thing to behold.   

I believe, Diane, that the world is forever a better place for having had your beloved girl Machita along for part of the journey.  And I know that Machita and Flapper were able to flourish when you all found each other, and throughout the years of love and devotion you all shared.

Bless guardian angels Machita & Flapper; Mom Diane and family, and the universe of spirits you continue to share, on two legs and four, today and always.

I am here today, Machita, on your 2 year angel day, to honor your tender, loving heart and your generous and beautiful soul, and to celebrate your spirt and life, and the love you share, until the end of time, with your Mommy Diane and family.

I want to thank you again, beautiful angel Machita, for being so kind to my precious Cinnamon when she first arrived at the Bridge, even though you yourself had only been there for a couple of months.  What a knowing and gentle spirit you have always been and will always be, dear girl.

Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth. 

Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself. 
Hold on to what you must do, 
Even if it's a long way from here. 
Hold on to your life, 
Even if it's easier to let go. 
Hold on to my hand, 
Even if I've gone away from you.

I met Machita ealier this month on her Angel day, Diane, but wanted to wish her well and honor Machita on her birthday, too.  What a beautiful, elegant lady she will always be, Diane, wearing her muzzle of gray that will always bring a smile, and a tear, to the face of Lab lovers everywhere.

I again bless beloved Angels Machia and Flapper, and Mom Diane.  I know you will continue to share a true and unconditional love forever.

For Diane and Family~

Keb Mo.......
  So much has been unspoken along the way
Hearts have healed and hearts have broken
In the pain of yesterday.
Gone are the shadows, vanished in the night
Let your heart surrender, let your soul take flight. Take care, xoxo Pat

Bless beautiful, giving, devoted, faithful, tender and brave Machita, and Mom Diane, on beloved Machita's 1yr Angel day.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Diane, on the first anniversary of the passing of your dear, sweet Machita.  My family lost our beautiful little girl Cinnamon to cancer June 4, 2012, and we feel her absence, and all that she added to our daily lives, every day.

Bless you for sharing a wonderful home, life and love with you baby Machita, and for loving and respecting her as unconditionally and completely as she did you.

Bless gentle spirits and Angels Machita and Flapper, and Mom Diane who loves them so, on beloved Machita's first Angel day.  May the love your share bring you some measure of peace until you are reunited forever.

Thank you so much for sendng me warm wishes for the loss of our precious Elvis.  He was my heart and a month has passed and the hurt is just as bad...

Your babies bring tears to my eyes as well and I am sure the loss is still so real for you. God Blee  Arleen

I lost my Picky on Sept 9, 2010...yesterday Sept 12th, I found my Snowy dead on her blanket. I dont know how to carry on and its hard. Even knowing that she is at peace and out of pain from old bones, is not enough to reassure or make me feel better.  I miss her so much. Your Machita was a beatuiful dog. I'm so sorry for your loss

Hello,  Thank you so kindly for sending me an email about  my angel Elvis.  He was the closest creature to me in this entire world and I will never ever forget him. He was cremated on my birthday 9/6/12 and it will be an honor each year to share with him.  Your sweet Machita may very well have met him at the  gates.  I am very sorry for your loss as well.  Arleen

We bring you our thanks  because we were freely given unconditional love.  We commit our beloved  companion  into your loving hands. Give us eyes to see how your love embraces all creatures and every living thing speaks to us of your love. Amen.

Machita has her very own star tonight. P

We sit beneath the night sky
by the whisper of the wind song...
in the quiet of darkness.
And they are never far.
Those we have loved and cherished,
those who have changed our lives
in some small or profound way
are closer than we know,
because it is their light
that shines on our world.
It is the brilliance
of their souls
that makes our night sky glow.

Diane, sorry it has taken this long to respond to your beautiful words on Missy's guestbook page. I am very concerned for you, as it is coming up on a month sinch your Machita passed. I wonder how you are doing, and I worry about your sadness. I know that, for me, like you, I was devastated for a long time, and only in the last few months have I realized that I have now started to smile at all the wonderful memories of my Missy rather than shed tears. I wear a necklace all the time that has her name engraved on the back, and on the front it has a paw print and says "Forever in My Heart." I feel so close to her always. I know that you are really struggling, because what we really want is our furbabies back. You and Machita are soulmates, and there's no separating that. I just want you to know that I am thinking of you with love and prayer, and will continue to do so, as you continue to grieve. Love and hugs, Carol

04-25-2012 2:11 PM -- By: Joe ,  From: EL Paso TX  

Our thoughts are with you. You will be in our prayers.

04-22-2012 11:35 PM -- By: Carol Palmer,  From: Socorro, New Mexico  

One more day, Diane, I know you would have given anything for one more day with your sweet Machita and your precious Flapper. That song means so very much to me, too, because I used to sing it to my Missy. I am so sorry for your loss of your Machita. I know the devastation you feel, and the guilt and the second-guessing as to whether you did the right thing. As time goes on, you'll realize that you made the right decision, that Machita was guiding you with your heart to make that decision. We had to make the same decision with our Missy, to send her into the Arms of Jesus rather than have her suffer another day on this earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you cope with your grief, as I have been in the very place you are now. I didn't know how to be me without my Missy. Over these many months, I have gradually come back to the person that Missy knew that I was, and I realize that so much of what I do now was influenced by Missy's life and love. I, like you,  believe that we will meet our little precious furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge, and we will reunited in joy there someday. I hope that the wonderful memories that you have of Machita and of Flapper will help you to smile through the tears every now and then. Bless you. They are so lucky to have you for their mama, and you are a better person for having had them in your life. Love and hugs, Carol

Stopping by to honor and remember precious Machita on her birthday.
We Celebrate You Today!   :)
"What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose.
For all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
~ (Helen Keller)
To Machita's Family --- I am deeply sorry to hear of the recent loss of your beloved Machita.  I do understand how deep your pain is and how very much you miss her.  She was definitely a very lucky girl to be so very LOVED!  Thinking of you and your precious Machita today on her birthday and wishing you well.  May the wonderful, happy memories of your sweet friend help to fill your heart for years to come until you meet again.
P.S.... I for one do believe that you heard Machita's collar, as I think our beloved furkids will often send us signs that they are still with us in spirit .  And I find that the "signs" tend to crop up when one least expects it and is not actively looking for them  - which makes them all the more special when we receive them.

I am so very sorry for the loss of precious Machita.  May the memories of Machita always bring you peace and comfort .. and .. cherish those memories as they can never be taken away.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.  Know that Machita was welcomed to Rainbow Bridge by my kids Sammy, Gabby and Bob M and all the beautiful babies of Rainbow Bridge.

I know what they both ment to you. Sorry for your loss.

04-13-2012 11:00 AM -- By: Deb Vitale,  From:  

So sorry for the loss of your beloved Machita.  I understand your pain, and I know that only time can put a smile back on your face, when the tears are replaced with happy memories of your Machita.

04-12-2012 12:08 AM -- By: Nancy,  From:  

What  a loving, precious memorial to one of the sweetest dogs i have ever come across. The love you have for your girl jumps off of the pages and reminds me  of th eloving bond I hadwith my 15 year old Picky.

Picky had to be sent to RainbowBridge on Sept 9,2010. Like your beautiful Machita, he was a part of my heart and my soul. And I miss him just as much nearly 2 years later.

I know you are huring sweetie. Its the worse kind of hurt.I know you long to have your baby girl next to you again, and when I read about her burial I broke down. It is obvious that you loved  your precious girl.

Please know she is not far away from you.

God bless you

My sincere sympathies on the loss of your dear friend Machita. Our black lab was named Marquisea and she too earned a gray muzzle on honor in her final years. May the happiest of memories of your time together help carry you through this difficult time. Know that so many others understand your pain.
