we've done many wonderful miles together over the years
you've kept my home free of mice, and most recently you've
kept the girls in line, and most important of all, you've been my
BEST friend.
Although I knew this day would come, my heart is still
shattered by your absence.
Run and breathe easy now my friend, you will be missed
by the many friends you've made along the way.
My beloved Bandit Valentine aka Bubba

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

I'm feeling your sorrow Alice. Bandit looked like he was appropirately named - a master thief - a heart stealer like no other. Many blessings of peace and comfort.

thank you all for your kind comments, although I'm totally devastated by
this, each day will be better I'm sure of it.
The secretary at work took Bandits picture (the first one on the post) and
put it together with that poem "Just a Dog" and using the color copier at
work and glossy paper she made a memorial for framing for me. Course
it made me cry all over again but it will set on the shelf with Bandits ashes
when I get them. Very few people in real life really know how much he
meant to me, he was my lifes heart dog.

What a nice tribute to Bandit that is. When I lost my Tara, I bought an urn necklace. The pendant is shaped like a bone and it has a place in which to put some of her ashes. I wear it often and feel comforted, knowing Tara is close to my heart. Losing a heart dog is devastating. Please know that we are all here for you to listen as you grieve and remember what a great dog Bandit was.
