Fritz was a light in our lives for 11 years. He was born with his 4 siblings in our bed in the middle of a winter storm! His mom Samantha thought that was a better spot than the whelping box we had carefully prepared. We ended up moving the soft sided nest between our pillows and that is where they stayed until it could no longer contain them and their safety demanded a move off the king size bed. Fritz was born chocolate and tan, the only variant among his black and tan siblings. Vance had always wanted a chocolate and tan so decided we were keeping him. As he got older his coat changed to sable and black just like his Daddy Hans. We always thought that was how he tricked us into keeping him! Vance was the center of his universe from day one. He was a master communicator and the sweetest soul. He loved balls, chicken jerky, the beach, his kiddy pool and his papa Vance. Lung cancer stole him from us early but his spirit and memories will be with us until we draw our last breath and join him at the rainbow bridge! love you little man!
