This is the follow up to The Adventure of SnickelFritz. Told from the point of view of SnickelFritz's family.

This is part two of the Snickelfritz story, part one can be found here.


One lovely lazy Sunday, while all the goat family was peacefully enjoying chewing on tin cans and leather boots, Mrs Fritz (Snickel-Fritz' mom), went on a trip to meat up with the squirrels on the other side of the dump.  The squirrels and the goats were very good friends and often exchanged goods in a very fair manor.  The squirrels would provide nuts for the goats, and the goats would chew up leather boots and give them the shreds so the squirrels could build better nests.  That being said, mrs Fritz went over to pay a visit to miss Cunningham, a young female squirrel who just had a litter of baby squirrels.  Mrs Fritz was coming over to shower Miss Cunningham with ground leather for her babies nests and also to congratulate her on her 7 new children.  What Mrs Fritz did not know, was that today was going to be the day where her life flip turned upside down.

As she pranced back to her broken tv area to rejoin her family, she looked up, and immediately knew that something was out of the ordinary.  All 11 brothers were pacing back and forth, and poppa Fritz had his face in his hooves crying uncontrollably.  Mrs Fritz' prance quickly turned into a steady gallop.  Poppa Fritz saw Mrs Fritz coming and tried to compose himself.

"Snickel-Fritz is gone my deer, we can't find him anywhere!" He screamed with tears running down his face.

"The boys have searched the entire dump high and low but he is nowhere to be found" he shouted.

"The only explanation we can think of is he must have accidently wondered off into the garbage compressor.... Poor SnickelFritz, WHY COULDN't THEY HAVE TAKEN ME ?!" he exclaimed1

Mrs Fritz didn't know what to do but lay down, she never said a word, but she could feel her insides collapsing. Snickel was her special little boy, with his Toaster foot and all, she dreaded the fact she wold most likely never see him again.

That night Mrs Fritz climbed up into the barn (located at the back of the dump, chomp chomp), and opened the sliding door and sang into the moon light the following song:

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there
And even though I know how very far apart we are It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
 It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there Out where dreams come true
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

Mrs Fritz then lay her head down and cried for the first time since she heard the news.

The next 8 months were hard, it took a heavy toll on the family.  Poppa Fritz and Mrs Fritz were slowly growing apart with the guilt of their poor sons dissapearance, but Mrs Fritz knew deep in her heart that one day Snickel might come back to her.  One day, Mrs Fritz decided she had had enough of the gloom and sadness floating around their house and decided to have a bit of a party.  The whole house was decorated from head to toe and the Cuningham family was invited to attend.  Nobody understood the magic in the air this fine August night... nobody.

That night, mid party, Mrs Fritz was comiong close to having a breakdown and decided out of pure sorrow to have a toast to Snickel Fritz.  She turned down the music and got everybodies attention.

She opened her arms and said "I would like to take a quick second to remember my deer toaster footed son Snickel Fritz...."

Before she could finish her sentence a loud Bang hit the roof.

Everybdoy ran outside immediately to see to their suprise a goat that cloesly resembled snickelfritz, flat on the roof. Minus the toaster of course.

All of a sudden, to everybodies suprise, the goat mumbled "Moooooooommmmmmmmmmy"

Immediately Mrs Fritz and Poppa Fritz burst into tears when they realized it was their beloved SnickelFritz.

They brought him inside and delt with the trama of travelling multiple KM via Toaster launching, then all gathered in the dump barn to watch the Slovakian house burn down from a distance.
