Awww Tammy I am soo sorry. Thankyou for being strong enough to post your brave little guys story though! This is all very sad. My heart goes out to you and your family, i can't imagine how much you guys must really be missing him I think that the proper burial you all gave him and the cross is a lovely way to honor his memory
Awwwwwwwwww............ I'm in tears. What a wonderful, wonderful thing Bandit did. There was something wrong with that Dane. I'm so sorry. Thank GOD your son is alive and unharmed. It seems he could have been very seriously injured - if not killed himself. Danes are BIG animals.
Bandit - you will be dearly missed. He really IS a hero.
Yes, that is what shook me up more...........knowing that my son could have been killed.Bandit protected my son, and gave his life for him.I miss him so much. I haven't been able to go through my pics to look for any.Every time I start to go through them, I start crying even more.
Thank you all for your kind words.
i see you've changed your sig - Bandit was a handsome dog!
thank you.That is an old siggy that Anakat made for me.I have tried to find Bandit's pics, and can't find any.I have some from when he was a pup and then older also.I know they are here, just gotta find them.
here is one of them that I found in my desk
condolences to all the family on the very, very horrific loss of Bandit. Godspeed over RB, Bandit - you are a HERO! The loss of such a brave dog is difficult on so many levels - your children probably feel so unguarded I am glad that your neighbor was practical about the whole situation - once that Dane got blooded, who knows how much worse things would have gotten
When our beloved GSD bit one of our friends, the dog "disappeared" when we were in school. That dog had always loved kids, including our playmate - there was no rhyme or reason for it, so my parents did what they had to. I cried and cried for weeks; they did get us another dog, a Collie/Lab mix. It's tragic for both sides
I'm just now seeing this, and I am so sorry. But, Bandit died protecting someone he loved, and if he was given the choice, I don't think he would do anything different. That is why dogs are so wonderful...their love is unconditional and so is ours.
I can only imagine how hard this must be for you. But, Bandit died a hero protecting the family that loved him and who loved him back. Many to you and your family.
