Bandit came to us on March 18, 1989. We adopted him from the Sterling Animal Shelter. We could not have been blessed with a more faithful, loving, wonderful dog. We lost him today and it broke our hearts. The Vet told us that 17 years was a long time to have any dog, let alone a mid-sized dog like him.
Our only consolation is that Bandit is now free from all the pain that he has been in, free from sickness, and is now romping and playing like a puppy just the other side of Rainbow Bridge.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I know you're romping and playing with Mitzi, Jazz and Snoopy, who are up there with you and I do hope you're all behaving yourselves around Scuffy, Fluffy, Smokey and Spooky and all the other felines up there!

We love you Bandit, and will rejoice on the day that we are reunited with you.

Love for all eternity,
Mom, Dad and all of the family that you blessed so wonderfully with your presence. XOXOXOXOXO
