Bandit the Bandit

They say be careful what you name your dog, and it's so true! Bandit (2 yrs) lives to take my most prized belongings. It's as though he knows what might be important to me. It isn't the actual theft that he enjoys, it's playing "keep away." He loves nothing more than to watch me try with all my ability to catch up to him. I would have to say this is his favorite game!

Bandit is an only dog. We lost our Great Dane to old age several months ago. He was so bewildered as to what happened to his friend. He spent several weeks looking for her in all her usual places. It was a very sad time for all of us! He's about to get a big surprise! We decided to add a new addition to our family. Bandit will soon be a brother to an eight week old Great Pyrenees, and we're so excited!

Hi! We also have a Bandit and his name fits him perfectly. He helps himself anything that isn't nailed down. Ha Ha. Our Bandit is an 11 month old blue merle who shares our home with a 9 year old black tri female who of course is a perfect lady. Nothing is safe with Bandit around. Inside Bandit loves socks and napkins and outside he will take your gardening tools. He is so sneaky and quick you don't realize he is even eyeing the item until he's running off with it. It's true - be careful what you name them. Perhaps we shouldn't have allowed our 13 year old son to name him.
