Wordless Wednesday and More

Wordless Wednesday
Although we lost this gentle dapper gentleman in 2018 he would have a birthday April 29, 2001. Bandit was so loved and he was the phamily icon for pets as far as longevity goes. He was a rat terrier and he lived a very good life for a very long time. This is a favorite photo of him, in the prime of his life. He was kind and gentle but he had a ferocious bark that would scare you if you didn't know him. I know you are running free at the Rainbow Bridge Bandit so enjoy your birthday in all the glory.  "Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault , really. " Agnes Sligh Turnbull
He loved his long naps as he grew older but a faithless friend was this fellow to Jeremy. He loved him unconditionally and that is hard to come by. The birthdays at the Rainbow Bridge are quite lovely, I am imagining. Canine and feline alike celebrating with each other while waiting for those they left behind.

 "We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.. " George Eliot

I love that verse and your memories of Bandit. I agree that dogs lives are too short. One of my Grandpuppies is getting older and I fear that day when he isn’t with us anymore. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

Happy Birthday in Heaven, sweet Bandit! I love this tribute you've written from the heart, Anne. Sometimes I worry I don't deserve the unconditional love our fur babies give so freely.
