I said good-bye to my beautiful Bandit at year ago, on Mothers Day. He was my heart dog and although I don’t think I would have ever been ready to lose him I certainly was not in any way prepared to lose him 3-4 years earlier than expected to a brain tumour. Right up until the last couple of months he was a very happy and active boy. He was a true champion, both in love and in sports. He was a natural athlete who was well known and accomplished in the world of dog sports but most importantly he was my best friend. He was a loyal, loving and joyful companion who was with me through thick and thin. He loved to explore, was up for any adventure I suggested and taught me to live in the moment. I’m forever grateful for his presence in my life, he literally is the best thing that ever happened to me. I am still struggling with his loss, I miss him so so much.
