Bandit was lost in the woods when I found him whimpering. He was the cutest little puppy. He went to obedience school and the instructor said frequently Mr. Bandit you are in time out. He didn't graduate but he still got his goody bag for coming every week. He was full of life and energy and loved to be around people. He loved going to the park, jumping (before his arthritis) eating hot dogs, shredding paper, ice cubes, sleeping on the bed and going for walks or I should say walking me. He hated the windshield wipers, getting his paws wet and getting a bath. Bandit was always so excited to see me when I came home and now the house is so empty without him. Everything is a reminder. He will be forever in my heart.
Life is so lonely without you Bandit. I think about you all the time. Smokey really misses you too and Missy Michelle misses rubbing against you when we would go outside for a walk. I hope you are happy, healthy and doing all the things you love to do.
8/21/15-Bandit, it has been 2 weeks since we were separated and I miss you more than ever. You were always so happy to see me when I came home. Sometimes I think I still hear you or see you in the yard. I miss you barking when you wanted a treat or your continuous licking with your long tongue. I tried so hard to keep you with me but I did not want to you to suffer and you were getting so sick. I wish you can give me a sign that you are happy and healthy. I do not think I can be at peace until I know that. I love you puppy.
8/29/15 - So many memories of my Bandit. The nose prints from pushing the door open, my alarm clock even on the weekends,being jealous of Josie & Smokey when they were on the bed. I miss bringing home treats, getting the leash to go for a walk and seeing him so excited. I will never forget my Bandit.
It has been just over a month. Bandit was more than a dog he was my best friend. Listening to everything I had to say with those puppy eyes. I didn't realize just how much joy he actually brought to me and how everything evolved around him which makes this time especially difficult.
It is unbelievable to me that you are gone. I miss you dearly every day!
8/6/16 It has been one year since my Puppy past away. My broken heart will never be the same. I miss Bandit every day. It is so sad not having him to come home to. I hope you are in a better place with no more pain just happy, care free, playing, barking and chasing things. Love you & miss you my precious Bandit.
8/7/17 2 years have went by and I miss you every day. Don't be mad that I gave your bowls to Smokey & Josie. I know you did not like them to use them. Things are not the same without you. It is so quiet and lonely as you were so full of excitement always. *Always in my Heart*
9/8/18 My Bandit, miss you so much. I cry to this day when I think of you. I saw another dog this morning that looked a lot like you. You are one of a kind, the crazy things you did like chew up Matt's wallet and money inside, the time you gulped fish bones and locked your jaw and swallowed them whole :( Remember when you were young before your arthritis, how many times did you run all around the pool? So many times. I hope that we provided a happy home for you and you sure provided me with so much comfort, as an attack dog (you faked pretty good) and a therapy dog when I was sad. I felt so loved by you when you were so happy to see me when I came home no matter what my mood was you put a smile on my face. I can not and never will forget you.
4/27/21 I miss you Bandit, Smokey is now with you. Miss you both and Grandma too. She was not a pet lover until she met you two. I think about you all the time and have your pictures up so I can see you. Josie is so lonely, she misses you too. She is like a different cat now because of being by herself and bored.
8/8/22 I still tear up when I talk about you Bandit. I miss you. Josie is hard of hearing like you were when you got older. She is still so lonely without you or Smokey. I love you Bandit forever.
8/7/23 I miss you my puppy. Bandit, your life and spirit cannot be replaced.
