Hans Stewart - playmate and friend

Post by firleymj » Thu Sep 11, 2014 3:06 pm

It is with sorrow that I write of the passing of Kona's first playmate outside his kennel family, "Hans" Stewart, an old-fashioned German Shepherd from metastatic cancer, which he bravely battled for more than five years with the help of his family.

Hans was a bright, happy dog who loved to play and extended so much love to the rowdy puppy that met him in May of 2013. I had the great good fortune to know Hans 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 was preceded in passing by his brother and litter-mate, Fritz this January.

Hans departed this life quietly and mercifully on 04 September 2014. Your brother Fritz, and Brandon, Chips, and Crystal howl their greetings from the other side for you. May you guard the gates of Heaven as well as you guarded your family on earth.

Thank you for caring.

I found this prayer recently and offer it for all who find themselves so situated:
Heavenly Father, we come today to return to you the life you entrusted to us in our faithful companion and servant _Name of Pet_
Receive we ask You, their spirit into your company for eternity, after the way of their kind. May _Name_ be blessed again to know his/her eternal Master and be joyfully rejoined with her/his families at the time of Thy choosing and in the fulness of Thy grace.

Amen.
[Doubtless some will object, but I found it comforting]
