My Beautiful Best Friend Bandit - My one true love
I just read Sandy's (from Philly) sorrow and I feel everything she is feeling. Bandit my black lab mix and I moved into this home together when he was just a puppy. For 13 years Bandit and I have done everything together - travel across country, go to Canada, drive up north for every season, look for moose together, swim, hike, laugh, snuggle, smootch, play, relax, camp.. and on and on...
I loved who I was when I was with him and we just had such an amazing love for each other; unlike anything I've ever experienced with another human. People who met him and knew him use to say he was like a human. He was so incredibly intelligent and observant and just truly blew my mind how amazing he was and the things he would do.
I never thought this day would come, but on on June 17, 2010 he passed. He left me alone without him and I can't stop crying and missing him. There's nowhere to go that he and I haven't been. I just can't wait for the day we're reunited to see his beautiful spirit and kiss him. I love you Bandit.
