    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful video full of sweet memories. Seems like just yesterday we were at your house when Bandit was a tiny precious pup. What a blessing to have such a special friend for 14 years, sadly tho it never seems long enough. We are so thankful we got to be a part of Bandit’s life story.
    Love you guys❤️

    Gary and Tami, my heart is breaking for you both. This was a beautiful way to honor Bandit. You’re right- dogs set the example of Christ’s unconditional love. They’re such a blessing from God. We never know how much time we’ll have with our loved ones. We can only make it a point to treasure every moment we do have and thank God for the time He’s given us with them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Beautiful tribute to Bandit and I love that you and Tami point to Jesus in what you shared. So sorry for this devastating loss. I’m in tears and grieving with you guys. Bandit – clearly a special dog, and I know you guys gave him the best life. Praying comfort over your household, friend.

    Thank you so much for sharing your unconditional love for Bandit. Our pets become a very important part of our family. We spend so much time with them and share such an unbelievable connection with our dogs. The relationship between people and their dogs is the only unconditional love you have with another other than the relationship we have with God.

    I have lost 2 of my dogs within the last 5 yrs and have a 65 pound goldendoodle that is 16 yrs old named, Roman. I thank the Lord for every day I get to spend with Roman.

    I understand the utter pain you both are going through. I am so impressed that you did a tribute to Bandit. It was so beautiful. You all are in my prayers, including Bandit.

    Even though Bandit is not with you today I firmly believe you will be reunited with him again. Thank you for sharing such an emotional story to the world!!!
