Remembering Bandit on Her First Rainbow Bridge Anniversary


It's hard to believe our beloved,  beautiful crazy, nutty, kissing Bandit ("Bee") has been gone a year now. Our strong alpha-wannabe (not under Harley's rule!) and the bossy sibling of the Pupsters (Bandit, Chloe, and Wolf), is no longer here, and now it's just been Wolfie, the lone Husky of my #FiveSibes pack.


Bee was a character. If there was Siberian Husky mischief to be had, Bee would be the one leading the charge! Small prey beware! She was also silly. Things Bandit did just made me either smile or call out, "BanDIT!"


If there were toys out for all five of the Huskies, somehow Bandit wound up with all of them under her. I always commented how her name fit her to a "B!"


When the zoomies came on, she would--in true Husky fashion--channel her ancestors and run like the wind!

Underneath her crazy, silly, beautiful exterior was a sweet, sweet dog. There wasn't a human she met that she didn't kiss! A true "kissing Bandit!" Even as she lay there as she was preparing to journey to those snowy fields North of the Rainbow Bridge, she kissed the hand of the vet.

I miss her.

I miss the three Pupsters together. 

I miss my FiveSibes pack.



This past year has been a very different one with just one of my FiveSibes boy Wolf. He and I have both adjusted to the "new" normal, but memories tug at my heartstrings of what once was...while always and forever being grateful I was their "FiveSibesMom."

Bandit, I hear echoes of so many years past of your feet charging across the floor, your grumbles as one of the other Huskies tried to take back their toy you stole, and the beauty of your howls. I miss your thousands of kisses and your beautiful stare. I hope you are loving your afterlife with most of your pack family in those forever snowy fields. You and they will always remain in my heart and memories forever.
