"God gave us our memories so that we might have Roses in December." a quote by J.M. Barrie. May the memories of your blessed furangel Chas, the ones that can't help but bring a smile to your face and a chuckle to your heart as you remember how your baby’s paw prints touched your life, be the ones that surround you this Holiday Season. My prayer for all of us this Christmas season, is that each of our babies wrap up a special little sign for each one of us back here, and send it to us during this blessed season. May you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it the most....And may each love-filled memory you have of your fur-angel bring to your heart the very warmth and sunshine of the Rainbow itself. That's just one "gift" your dear fur-angel would want for you this year...Best wishes for you and your family this Holiday Season, Karen (Dusty, DJ & Patches mom)

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Chas. Please find comfort in knowing that Chas is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. I am sure that Chas and Spooky have become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

My deepest sympathies to you on your loss. I do know what it is like to lose a loved one, whether Human or one of our special, furry babies. Having lost quite a few of my own and doing dog rescue, it is never easy. From my house of 6 furr babies, to yours, we wish you the best. If you ever need to write please do so. I will be there for you. They never leave us, we just don't see them any more. Their spirit lives on.

Dear Chas, What a handsome boy you are. I know that your family misses you so very much. My Buddy Cat is at the Rainbow Bridge. I have asked Buddy to look around and find you as I know that you will be good friends. I am sure Buddy will give you nose kisses and introduce you to many new friends to play with at the Bridge. To: Maureen, I am so sorry to hear of the passing your dear Chas. I take encouragement in the thought that our furbabies are running & playing in such a beautiful place as they wait to be reunited with us some day. I know how much you miss your angel just as we miss our Buddy Cat. Our hearts go out to you with deepest sympathy for your loss. At least our furbabies are out of pain as we try to deal with our own emptiness now that they are gone. May the Angels watch over them, and help us who grieve their passing. I would love if you would visit our BuddyCat.

Dear Maureen, Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of Chas. I had my dog Chandler almost 15 years. His former home was Berlin, MD. Please visit his memorial. Chas was a beautiful dog. I can't say its much better after 4 weeks but I have realized as long as he is alive in my memories he feels closer to me. God Bless you at this difficult time.

Maureen, I am so very sorry for the loss of your wonderful Chas. I know the pain you are feeling as I just lost one of my best friends and companions of 16 years, Willy, on January 4, 2011. It hurts so very badly, and I know my tears are still flowing. I know though, that Chas and Willy are probably playing in the meadows running and jumping now. I know Willy loved the sunshine and I hope that Chas does too. I truly believe that God would not have made a Heaven without our beloved companions there to meet us. I have left an extra angel to look over Chas, as he is your angel watching over you. I hope that your pain begins to turn to peace that fills your heart with nothing but wonderful memories. God Bless You until we all meet again. I would love for you to visit Willy at

Hello Maureen, I am so sorry for the lost of your beautiful Chas. King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes: "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven…a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…" The Zohar, the classic work of Kabbalah, describes the inner psyche of man as "crying being on one side of the heart and laughing on the other side of the heart." Yet, there is an even deeper understanding, in time we will learn to be joyous and broken hearted at the same time. Our fur babies where so beautiful and a gift of true joy & love, how can we not be happy when we reflect on there memory and begin to celebrate there life. I lost my Zander July 2008; please take comfort in knowing that we will one day be together again with our beautiful companions; I have attached Zander's link if you care to visit. With Love & Sympathy Diane.

Chas, you are such a handsome little guy. I hope you are having lots of fun in the meadow with my little girl Usdi. She is a beagle too and she loves to play. She was my little shadow just like you were to your Mommy. Your Mommy loves you and misses you so much. Please send her a sign to let her know you are always by her side, just like you were when you were here. I never got to meet you but you have a special place in my heart. Maureen, I know how much you love and miss little Chas. I know he left you with beautiful memories, just hang on to those and one day you will be with him again. Take care my friend and my prayers are always with you. ~Sissy

Maureen, Chas was a handsome fellow! How wonderful to have had him for 17 years! My Molly beagle is now almost 15 and I hope she'll be around another couple years, too. Remember all the good times and how you laughed with and at Chas. I know he made you happy and you made him happy, too. Keep him in your heart and memory!

Maureen, I just visited Chas. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet, It seems we never have our little ones long enough. I lost my precious Bichon, Amor July, 1, 2010. Its getting easier, but I still miss her and think of her everyday. Please visit Amor at Rainbow Bridge to see my little girl. Take care, God bless. Eleanor

Charles - What a precious guy you were to your family and how much they will always love you! Send them some signs, kisses from the Rainbow to let them know that you are safe, happy, healthy and will have many friends. Let mom and dad know that God has appointed you to be their guardian, protector to watch over them until they are called to the Bridge to join you one day. I will tell my Brande to find you and play with you. To Maureen - I send my sincere sympathy to you over the loss of Charles. I too lost my soulmate not long ago, see Brande at - We know that God has promised we will be with our babies again one day. I leave this quote with you, "heaven is the only place where all the dogs and cats you have ever loved will come running to meet you." Author Unknown

Maureen, so sorry for your loss. Saying goodbye is never easy.....those little furry companions definitely steal our hearts and souls. They are so precious and are truly one of God's greatest gifts. Take comfort in that their love for us goes on as our love for them does for eternity. I am sure that the memories of this precious member will be with you always. We also lost our adorable little pug, Nikki Mae, who was the light of our lives for more than 14 wonderful years. We are sure that beautiful Chas and Nikki Mae have become good friends and are now having so much fun playing and running again. Please visit our Nikki Mae at:
