In Memory of Our Beloved...



Bandit, an Alaskan Husky-Malamute came into my life on November 17, 2001.   He was adopted from the Whatcom Humane Society at 7 1/2 years old.  Bandit was gray and white and such a fun dog to be with.  When I went to pick him up at the shelter, I took Madison, my 9 year old Rottweiler to meet him (she passed away on 12/02/06).  He was so excited to greet her, he sang and danced, the malamute way!  Bandit loved going to Birch Bay State Park to walk in the woods or on the beach, playing with his favorite stuffed duck, riding in the car and receiving treats at the espresso stand, and opening his own birthday and Christmas gifts.  Bandit was a real trooper!  He had bilateral hip dysplasia and went weekly through the border to Canada for his underwater treadmill therapy.  Bandit, being a family member, had the very best of care from the veterinarians and staff at Village Veterinary Hospital, Aldergrove Animal Hospital, and Cana da West Veterinary Specialists. I am so grateful to each of them!  Bandit went to be with God on August 25, 2007.  He had osteosarcoma.  One day I will meet Bandit on the Rainbow Bridge, but until then, I have many wonderful memories and pictures to hold onto.  There is comfort knowing Bandit is no longer in pain.  Bandit, you are loved by many!!
