Fritz Stewart - playmate and friend

Post by firleymj » Sat Feb 01, 2014 3:43 pm

It is with tears that I write of the passing of one of Kona's first playmates, "Fritz" Stewart, an old-fashioned German Shepherd from metastatic cancer.

Fritz was a bright, happy dog who loved to play and extended so much love to the rowdy puppy that met him only this May. I had the great good fortune to know Fritz from his puppy-hood, and truly loved this dog. He was the loyal and playful companion of his owners, John and Megan, and their daughter Victoria. He leaves behind another litter-mate, "Hans"

Fritz departed this life quietly and mercifully 31 January 2014. Brandon, Chips, and Crystal howl their greetings from the other side for you, and may you guard the gates of Heaven as well as you guarded your family on earth.

SO sorry to hear of your lost.......

I searched the internet hoping to find something that would ease the pain as much as possible , I hope it helps you.

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must done,
For this,the last battle,
can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day,more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test,
we have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end and hold me firm and speak to me,
until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree,
it is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail it's last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you,
who has to decide this thing to do;
we've been so close, we two,
these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Okay, now I'm in tears. I did not know Fritz but have heard so many stories about him and Hans. RIP sweet boy. :cry:

Thank you all for your support regarding my Fritz, and now with the loss of his brother Hans. I have been blessed with knowing Kona (and his owner/Dad, Mark Firley), and now the extended pack of Kona's! I appreciated you and just want to say thank you!
