We lost our sweet little Bandit on 05-24-15

on Sunday may 24 2015 we went to the YMCA to work out and then came home to change and then took our little girl to chuck e cheese. We came home several hours later and I came in first and found little bandit on his bed not breathing. I carried him out to our car and we took him to a local emergency hospital. I held his little paw on the way. They helped us arrange to have him cremated. In less then 24 hours my little bandit was gone forever. I wanted him cremated so when I die he and his brother who is still with us can be buried with me.
I am a 44 year old man. I am 6'1 and 235 pounds and I always thought I was tough until this happened and have been crying like a baby since Sunday and today is Wednesday. I know it is going to take a long time to get over this. I loved my little bandit more than anything. He was the sweetest little dog I have ever seen. I will always wonder what happened to him since I chose not to have him cut on. I will always love my little bandit and he will never be forgotten.
Always tell those you love just how much you love them because you never know if you will see them again. Death is final.there are no second chances.I'd love to go back and have one more hour with my little boy. It seems I keep thinking about what I did wrong and what I could have done if I was there but I know it was his time to go just like we all will one day. I know god is enjoying his newest little angel in heaven right now. Rest in peace my little bandit. Daddy will always love you

by: Anonymous

Hi there, i lost my Bandit yesterday after we walked with our two other aussis. He collabset so fast. It hurts i cry and i wish i could have a minute to Tell him that i love him, and that he was my sweet heart. But he learned me to keep an eye of my life and be good to the other two. Life is to short to be angry to be sitting in Front of computers. Stay out, Play , Walk,laugh..
Bandit i will miss you and you are eher in my Heart

I'm sorry
by: Pam

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had my black lab Bandit boy and lost him 5 years ago and I still miss him. This page, I swear, saved me. I'm glad you wrote about your boy and loved him so. And you're right.. Heaven is full of our beautiful babies and one day we will all be together again. I haven't been back to this page in years and reading your words just brought back so much pain. So many of us know and feel what you're going thru and let the tears come out.. it's ok. My deepest sympathy for you.. and hugs Bandit's Dad. Pam

Grieving and devastated
by: Priya Ramakrishnan

We lost my labrador who was just 4 years old and we dont know what he had been suffering from. The grief combined with the guilt is heart rending and it has been 3 days and I am not sure why I am still alive and whats the purpose of my existence.

I can't imagine the sorrow you feel not knowing what happened. Not knowing if there was something you could have done differently. Unfortunately, the love we have for them is so great that all we want is to protect them and no matter what many of these things are out of our hands. I just lost my little guy on Sunday night and Im numb, still in shock. May you begin to heal and come to peace.

sweet little Bandit
by: Nadine

David, I am replying to your post because I also lost a pet named Bandit, not a dog but a cat. I don't think it matters which kind of animal you take in. Once you love them and receive their love they are a part of you and considered family. My Bandit was a stray of about 1 or 2 months. Someone shot her in the face with a bb gun, blinding her and breaking her jaw. We took care of her for a year or so until she deteriorated to the point of having to have her put to sleep. I too am older and consider myself a strong person but I cried for her and other cats we have lost. Our furbabies are waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge. I hope you and your family will find peace and solace after the grief subsides. My sincere condolences. Nadine
