Arrival Story:
we got bandit as a pup to be a buddy for our lilman after his 1st xmas. when we went to pick him out, we took our baby girl (mystic) and our son in order to help us find a friend. bandit walked right up to both of them, gave mystic a qwik kiss and put his head in our sons lap. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!! we wanted so bad to take the 2 plain white ones (the guy had them for sale super cheap b/c they werent "pedigree standards" but we wouldnt have had enough room for them at the house at the time. they were such sweet little girls but very shy.-i hope they found good homes... it took about a week after we had him before we figured out a name for him...joe and i happened to be arguing when bandit trotted right past us in the kitchen, went into the bathroom and grabbed my curling iron then came trotting thru the kitchen back into the livingroom with the iron (which was not on or hot!) in his mouth and just layed at the door way. it turns out-he had been theiving quite a few of our things which is what we were arguing about at the time. he had hidden them behind the rocker he layed under during the day to take his "naps". and so the name bandit came upon him...

he is a double merle (which we knew ahead of time) meaning both his parents are merle sheperds. he is already showing signs of hip displaysia but we wouldnt trade him for the world. he and our son are best of buds and he and mystic lay side by side ALL the time. i still get such a kick out of seeing his little tail wag as fast as possible-he can even wag it while drinking and walking...thats talent (lol) it sure has been awhile (1-19-08) but alot has chaqnged in the last 6 months or so. we dont have internet at the time being but i wanted to update everyone and say that bandit passed on to the rainbow bridge on august 11, 2008. he was just too sick for too long without any diagnosis. we miss him terribly but we all know hes healthy and happy waiting for us to join him. thank you to all who befriended him and took a look see into his and our wonderful world of pets. we will be in contact soon with another update.

ive been talking to you alot lately-along with lilman but i have a favor to ask of you...please watch over a friend of mine's furfriend. she and her family had to send him over there to you guys b/c of all the pain he was in. shes afraid with him being so young-he will be lost. i have told her how all you pups become young again and healthy and how you play and watch over us all, but she is still so sad.

his name is reiley, and altho i dont believe he has a page here on this site-and you two never met, hes gonna need a furfriend to watch over him.
reiley had a 6 year old little buddy like you did and hes not doing so well either. like lilman hes upset and misses him terribly. liljoe has his days, as do i. i dont get on here much anymore-but i think of you often! the computer rotates all the pics that i have stroed on it as a screen saver and let me tell ya-there are a LOT of you my dear. we just smile and have our own little memory of you each time. its helped alot-

i have also told lilman about how you lay with him at night. hes been sad lately that you arent here again this christmas but i asure him how you led us to apollo and how his birthday is new years eve. you cant get anymore blunt then that. a new life for a new dog for his 1st year0now he turns 2. anyway, i told him to not worry, that you would never leave him or any of us. you have only moved on to where we cant be yet-its not our time. so your way of being with him is after he has gone to bed, just as he is falling asleep-you lay with him at his feet and keep him warm. hes taken notice to that and smiles now when he talks about you from the night before. you must visit him alot in his dreams...thank you. i miss you and still hate myself at times for not coming to your rescue sooner or being able to keep you breathing but i have a better understanding and can handle it better than he could at his age. plus-when i do get down and start to cry, apollo comes right over and puts his head and gaint paw on my lap, as if to say-dont cry mom, everything will be alright. and hes right-i know. just please understand i have my moment were my fur-kid, im entitled! =)

love you honey-and please, make sure reiley knows they did what they had to do in order for him to feel better. im sure he understands but he was about as young as you were when you crossed.

squishy hugs and mouth full of furr kisses!


happy birthday mr bandito...

i wanted to let you know why i have been so going thru pics on the computer, organinzing them, adjusting the hues and such so i can start fresh when making slide shows and all. i wanna create true photo albums but i need the pics ready to go. i sorry its taking so long and that its such a tedious job but its my own fault-

this is the first time im really working with your pictures since you went off to live in a more beautiful place. im gonna have hard moments but i know in the long run it will pay of and i will be able to provide substantial design creativity for you and your furmates and furfriends.

once they are organized then i can go into picasa and photobucket and webfetti and all that. but even that is gonna take some time. im trying to keep up with your dogster mail and your corralled friends and stories that you like to share-please dont think i have abandoned you or any of them. i visit as often as i can without neglecting your family down here.

i cant wait tho and i hope you like what i get accomplished when i can accomplish it. altho-you know im never truly long as the image sits infront of me im always trying to make it better.

i love you baby and miss you dearly. have fun up there and remember-i havent abandoned you, im trying to get closer to you is all!
