Hans

August 23, 2002 - August 18, 2015



We had to say goodbye to our loving, loyal and sweet boy Hans last week, and we miss him terribly but he will always have a special place in our hearts and we will always love our baby. Here he is as a puppy and adult, we were blessed to have him in our lives.

Hans does look like a much loved, spoiled pet. And that is how it should be. I know how you feel loosing him and I am so sorry for your loss. In time you will be ready for another special boy. Won't take Hans place but it will make a place of its own.

Alpha I am sorry again for your loss of Hans. He looks beautiful. And like a wise old man I know there is not much anyone can say to ease the pain , but know Alpha he loved you and knew he was . He had a wonderful life with you. It is so stinking hard.....I still am not over my Levi. He was just so different and special to me. People keep pushing me to get another. But I just cannot do that yet. Or if I even want to. I am afraid I will compare another to my little boy....and that wouldn't be right. I pray God will give you peace and comfort soon .
Yeah we do learn to live without them but that is very, very hard. We have no option but to learn to live without them. You though sometimes I still think hear snoring when I am up late at night. We always sat up together. My heart is heavy for you and your husband.
And I hope that maybe you can get a rescue Schnauzer and let him have a chance at the life your Hans had in such a living home

Now I am content, that my life it was worthwhile
Knowing that I passed along
and made somebody smile
when you are walking down the street
and got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind
So Please don't be unhappy
because I'm out of sight
remember that I'm with you
every morning, day and night

It's still not easy Alpha but you gave him such an exceptional life. I always dream that my deceased pets are happy, playing and enjoying themselves and I will be reunited someday with them all. Hans is at peace now and hopefully you will find some as well my friend.

A poem I made up just for you Alpha!:angel:

So sorry you lost him
He was a sweet boy
He likes where he is
Love's with him evermore
I'll always remember him
And I'll meet him some day,
He will be glad to greet me
Up above far away.

We all miss you Hans.

After Saav shared her story about losing her sweet dog Lilly, I really felt her pain and was saddened by the news. A few nights later I had a dream of my Hans, he was in my back yard and I was surprised to see him there. He was beautiful, perfectly groomed, coat just shiny and glistening and he stood proudly, but did not show any playfulness or tail wagging, only serenity.

I excitedly called him onto the porch where my husband was, and when he came to me, I gently stroked him and was in awe just to see him again. I told my husband, 'look honey!', 'it's Hans'!, "Hans is here'! My husband didn't hear my words in the dream, nor did he see our beloved Hans. The reality came over me in the dream that I was dreaming, it was like a lucid dream, and that my sweet boy wasn't really there with us.

Just then I woke up for the morning, and as I reviewed the dream in my mind, the tears started to flow. I felt very sad, I miss him so much. When my husband noticed there was a problem with me, he asked me what was the matter. When I told him, I just broke down and he comforted me telling me I was lucky to have such a nice dream of Hans, and he wishes he could have a dream like that.

I have to admit I was kind of down all that day, and I'm still emotional just writing this, but I wanted to share. I had already told Saav about the dream, since it was the loss of her dear Lilly that must have triggered my dream state. It really affects our minds and hearts when we lose our furbabies, never an easy time for any of us.

It's so very tough my friend but I'm glad you shared your feelings. Hans was such a handsome sweet boy and I made his photo my computer wallpaper. Reality can bite it sometimes. Although our furry family who've passed are still in our hearts and memories we always wish they were physically here as well.:love_heart:
