NSR: One year later, still missing Bandit


It’s hard for me to believe a year has passed since we said goodbye to our big, loveable, nearly perfect except for the biting people thing, monster, Bandit. 

My heart still aches a year later.  Even though we’ve got a new, amazing pup…it’s not the same.  Bandit had so much character and personality.  We connected (and I’m not just talking about physically when he bit me!) and he was with me for longer than my ex-husband!  Haha.


I miss coming home to his smile literally right as soon as you opened the door, as if to say, “Hi there!  I’ve missed you.  Welcome home!  I’m so glad to see you!”

I miss lots of things about him but mostly I just miss him.

I’m taking a bit of an off weekend to escape, to remember and to make new memories to cherish and savor.

packdog We’re going to try to take advantage of the warming temperatures and take Mr. Barbo hiking this weekend so I won’t be around much.   Doesn’t he look sharp in his little backpack?

Orders placed this weekend will go out in Monday’s mail.  Have a good weekend, whatever you do!

Have a fun weekend. I feel your pain. Pets can be such a cherished part of our family.

I'll be thinking about you this weekend. Enjoy your time with Mr.Barbo--he is just too cute with his backpack on!

Thinking of you Kate! I hope y'all have fun with Mr. Barbo...he won't ever replace Bandit, but he can certainly help soothe your heart!

My heart goes out to you. Our "Molly May" recently left our family and it's hard to remember life without her. I hope you have a great time with Mr. Barbo, he is pretty spiffy looking in his pack pack.
