What a fortunate dog Bandit was to have had the love of a family for 17 1/2 years. I am sorry for your loss.

Thinking about you and your family. Bandit is now running free in heaven.


When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

We're saddened to hear that Bandit has come to the end of her life's journey. She was a special family member and she is bound to be greatly missed for many years to come. Our sympathy to the rest of her pack,

Awwwweeee, I am so sorry for your loss. Looks like a lot of us understand your heavy heart. My little girl was diagnosed with a devistating kidney condition and I fear loosing her soon. My stomach is in knots 24/7. I hope you find some comfort in the compassion expressed here...

Find a copy of The Rainbow Bridge. If you haven't read it before, it puts into words just how important our pets are. I've given it to several folks after the loss of a pet - and many others have asked for it. My condolences to you at this sad time. Only time will help with the feelings - the loss will never go away. We lost our 4-legged friend a number of years ago - he was one week short of his twentieth birthday. I've told many folks that we had "Cinders" longer than most families have children in their home. And, he was the perfect pet - never got on the furniture, never begged for food and in 20 years, cost us about $8 in vet bills. But, there are times that we miss him terribly. Enjoy those you still have!

Richard and Jan;

Sorry to hear about Bandit. I know what you mean when you say your other look around the house for her. When we lost our black Schauzer a couple of years ago Hunter looked all over the property looking for him. Sometimes I think he still looks for Mac.

Cold and windy up on the rim today. Lots of smoke in the forest from that controlled burn going on.

Talk to you later.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words...

We were traveling for two weeks and left all the dogs at home with a friend who had moved into our home while we were gone. We know that Bandit was not well and was not up to the trip. Jan called everyday to make sure things were fine. We are grateful that we had returned home before she passed.

On this trip Jan selected an audio book to help pass the hours as we drove. The book was Marley & Me. We laughed at the antics of Marley who very much reminded us of our Yellow Lab, Gracie. We cried at the end as they suffered the loss of their friend Marley. We did not realize that a week later I would be the one digging the grave beneath the tree in the back yard.

A very special quote from the book:
A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?
Thank you again...

Richard and Jan,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your little one. A bittersweet moment in the choice of your traveling audio. I hope Gracie and Smokie as well as you and Jan don't have too difficult a time with her passing.
