Cuddling and giving kisses
Smoke alarms,Loud thunderstorms, and fireworks(although he is getting braver at those).
His stuffed squeaky toy blue and red striped bone and puppet dog
he loves beef sticks,anything us humans eat except onions which we would never give him,he likes greenies, and mints for doggies,His first food was Science Diet and he liked it, now he eats a pedigree adult food and is getting picky.He loves Pizza Crust!!
Anywhere as long as he is with momma
He is very vocal and has a large vocabulary.Known for his breed. He also likes walking on his hind legs turns around and leans against me when I pet him.The Best trick?He trained himself from observation, to become my Seizure Alert Companion Dog.
I decided I wanted to get a dog,So I researched breeds until I knew which breed was the best suited for me and my family. Once I did that I went into a pet adoption website and searched. From the moment I read his profile and saw his first baby picture I fell in love with him.It took me a few weeks of preparation but soon he was flown to me from his Utah first home with the breeders parents. Once he came off of the plane he was shaking but soon after frolicking and in time he relaxed and became accustomed to his new family and home and loves us like we love him.We had 14 years together before he crossed the rainbow bridge.
Bandit has a bloodline of purebred Chinese Cresteds. He is known as a Powderpuff variety. These are born in the same litter as their hairless siblings and as history claims, it has been said the Powderpuff is born with so much hair/fur to keep the hairless siblings warm.
Best kisser Seizure dog
The Last Forum I Posted In:
What breeds do you think Riley is?
Bandit loves to jump high and play silly.He loves to give kisses and is very affectionate.
He is my seizure alert companion dog because he loves me spends allot of time with me and observed my seizures,soon after began predicting when they were coming on within 30 min accuracy.He makes sure I am safe and comfortable during my seizures and stays with me.Sometimes he will bark to alert people if we are not alone.

Folks it has been a long time since my last entry. It has been difficult for me to come in for quite some time.
My Bandit developed Lymphoma cancer and it quickly spread throughout his body, covering all lymphnodes within a year or less time.He was too weak to go through surgery or chemo. I did the best I could for him but on March 1, 2014 just days after his 14th birthday, he was laid to rest.
He had the pleasure of sharing his last 2 months with a puppy I adopted called Ebony whom is now in training still to pick up where Bandit left off as my Seizure Alert dog.A long process, when dealing with a Chihuahua, but I am certain it can be done!
Thanks for all who friended Bandit
Coming in here and seeing his profile, was like stepping into a frozen moment in time. Painful but nice all at once if that makes since. I will have to add Ebony to my profile soon.

HI I am sorry that I haven't updated an entry in oh so long. Allot of things in my life have changed. I am still living with my momma (that is one thing never to change) but we have moved from the North (Massachusetts) to the South (South Carolina). It was a very big change for both of us. Momma had to make the change for us due to her health conditions which is also why we haven't been in to update in Quite some time.
Momma was very very sick for a long long time and couldn't even begin to figure out how to get back in here to update. But long tail short, BOL, She is doing better and we are going to try to keep updates in here a little more well, updated.
The big move took a long day into the night driving we moved all of our stuff in a big big moving trailer. I got to ride up front with my family of course. Momma laid down a nice comfy bed on the floor on the passengers side and we were all snug and safe the entire trip.We stopped at lots of different places along the way to let us do our potty breaks and eat and stretch out. I got to see so many different places I never thought I would see. We moved into a nice house with a huge fenced in back yard. Momma had a roommate that also had a dog so I got to make a new friend and we were so happy. I do however, miss my papa Wayne. He drove back after helping us move in. But he has come to visit me twice since then and we always have fun when we get together. He updates momma allot too so we know we are never truly all that far apart.
Momma has a new boyfriend that she now has us sharing an apartment with the other arrangement didn't work out past the winter. I don't have a big house or a big fenced in yard anymore.. :( But we do have a side yard with lots of grass and at the other end of the parking Lot is another grassy spot with lots of shading trees and places for me to have fun. We go to lots of places together, and have lots of fun. We take long walks and short walks like dozens of times every day when it is nice but about half that time when it is rainy. I have become stubborn and won't wear my raincoat anymore.. But I don't mind the rain all that much.
We go to the lakes and waterfalls to swim and I've only seen a few inches of snow since we moved here last Summer so that is nice especially for momma. I don't mind not having to get that cold anymore either. I have made some new friends here and I no longer have to worry about getting hurt by angry dogs when I am outside. Whew, what a relief that is.
Momma's boyfriend even got me my very own boat for floating on the lake in. I like it cause I don't have to always be in the water in order to be near momma while she is swimming. It even has my very own name on it on both the front and the back. Sometimes I still hug momma and we float together with her orange donut. She knows I feel better when she is hugging me. I sure hope everyone else is having a great year and are healthy. I sure would love to hear some updates! BOL, Take care and I'll be wagging my tail at ya's again real soon.

Today is my Birthday! Wahoo! Mom says she thinks I am 7 now. But there has been many confusions about my age due to the paperwork from the start. I am still just as playful as I was when I was a puppy. As long as mom gives me those wonderful massages she does for me to not be so stiff. This winter has been very long, I had a couple of days where I became very lethargic and mom had to bring me to my Vet Er nearest to home. They gave me some pills that made the pain lessen and told me I had to have strict bed rest for 48hrs no jumping. That was easy for me as I didn't feel well. When it was over those 48hrs I was as good as new! Strange how it just came up on me and then after those 2 days in bed I was back to perfect. Mom said there were a few other dogs in our town that went through it as well.
All I can say is thank goodness for the Vet's help and for mom taking such good care of me. She even slept downstairs on the sofa next to my bed for those days so I would not be lonely. We get along great. I love my mommy and she loves me. I hope everyone has had a great winter and is feeling well.
Mom says, there are times she wonders how she got so lucky to find me. I lick her face allot and say Same here! :)
I wish all dogs could find a great furever home like I did.
Well, it is time for me to get another beef stick from mom, she is trying to spoil me more today since it is my birthday! But I wonder, is that possible?? BOL
