In Loving Memory of Bandit

This post is concerning the best dog in the world, Bandit, who we had to put down several days ago because he was getting very old. He has been losing hair for a while, his eyes were leaking brown stuff, and the vet told us he had cancer. Several months later though we were told he didn't have cancer, just skin allergies or something. He still had lost a lot of fur and wouldn't be able to last the winter. We also got a new puppy, and we didn't want him teaching her bad habits. We buried him under a apple tree out back.

Here are some pictures of him.

One of my favorite pictures of him
 This one is also one of my favorite

In as bad of shape as he was, he was still in really good shape, he could run like it is nothing and would never miss a chance for a car ride. He ran along, hoping to get in the car not knowing it was his last trip to the vet.




  1. So sorry about your dog :( I know how it is to lose pets; we lost our long-haired cat in 2012, our tabby cat in 2010, and our black cat in 2008.

    I love your blog! I have one too:

    1. Yeah, he was really special to us, we had him for 12 years, he was older than me!

      Thanks! I love your blog! I added it to my blog list. :D We had three cats, but they disappeared, I guess taken by coyotes.

  2. Sorry to hear you lost this faithful friend. Are you going to blog about the new puppy?

  3. I'm sorry to hear you had to say "goodbye" to you dog. He looks like a great dog. We have 2 dogs and the oldest is 13. I know what you mean when you say he was in good shape but not really good shape. Our dog acts like a puppy sometimes and other times acts his age.
