Fritz was such a strong little dog, he got sick in 2012 and we almost lost him then. Thankfully the doctors at the Jacksonville, FL animal hospital saved him with 3 blood transfusions, medication & loving care. He was like our child, with the transfusions came anemia & diabetes. He had to be on a strict diet (prescribed),we did give him treats & chew once a week and he was so happy. He loved his squeak toys, tried to bring him home a new one every week. He would run in circles when he had to get his shots, just so I would chase him. Then last week he was diagnosed with heart & lung problems, time to say good-bye! Loved him to death. Hope to see him again one day! Rest in Peace Stas's little shadow!|
06/29/2017 - Fritz, it has been 1 week today:
You no longer greet me, as I walk through the door.
07/05/2017 - Hey bubba! Daddy & Mommy sure misses you! I am waiting for them to call me so I can pick up your urn & bring you home! We didn't do much for the 4th this year, maybe next year! I hope you are okay now. RIP our little angel!
07/06/2017 - Fritz, it has been 2 long weeks today:
07/11/2017 - Bubba! So miss you! Just got word that your urn is on back order so I will not be able to bring you home just yet. Daddy has gathered up all your toys, I'm sure there are still some hidden that we haven't found, but he has put them in one of your beds. We have decided to keep everything for now. I do squeak your favorite ones every so often just to hear them, but it makes me cry. Still cannot believe your gone. It's coming up on 3 weeks and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier, maybe once your back home I will get some closure.
07/13/2017 - Fritz! It's been 3 weeks and my heart is so broken! Called Fran today to tell her why you haven't been there to be groomed, she said she kinda of knew. Fran & the girls at K-9 Designs are sorry they didn't get to say good-bye, but Fran said she knows that you are at peace now. I haven't really sat on the porch lately, that was kinda mine & your thing, I haven't had a cigarette now for a month. The squirrels are getting a little braver, they are getting close to the porch where you used to sit & watch until you could almost catch them. RIP my little friend, I will never forget you.
07/17/2017 - Bubba! I visit you everyday, just do not leave words! We miss you, the house is so quiet. Hopefully they will call me this week to pick your urn up. Words just cannot explain how I feel about your passing, it is nothing I have ever felt before. Just a big empty spot in my chest. I hope you are in no pain & free as a bird! Love you!
07/20/2017 - Fritz, Today is 4 weeks you have been gone! Just cannot believe how time has flown by, feels like it was yesterday! We did pick your urn up yesterday & was finally able to bring you home! RIP bubba! You will always be with us! Dad left you some Tostitos!
