Meet Bandit, the newest member of the family!
I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately. I have a good reason, I promise. It’s this guy.
There are a few more posts I need to write about the furry family members, but if you go to my About Me page, you’ll see our other Siberian Husky, Morgan. Our first husky, Merlin, passed away in May. He was two months shy of turning 15. It broke out hearts, because he was the first dog my husband and I got together. When he passed away, we were crushed. We still had our diva, Morgan, but weren’t sure if we’d get another dog.
The New Family Member
Two months after Merlin had passed, I received a call from a friend who had a family member that had to re-home their husky puppy. We’d been offered at least a half dozen pups since then, but they didn’t seem right. When I saw this face, I knew he was meant to be ours. We brought him home 24 hours later and it’s been pure chaos since – in a good way.
Morgan wasn’t so sure about him at first, but after the last two months, they have started to bond. They play like they are WWF wrestlers from the 80’s. It’s like Hulk Hogan and Randy, the Macho Man, Savage are having their own personal battle in my living room. It took a while to realize that this was play and not aggression, but thanks to a friend who trains dogs, we were able to figure out that they could co-exist in the same house. Today, I caught them snuggling and that’s when I knew we were officially a happy pack of four.
A little bit more about Bandit – he insisted that he have a voice on his page since Morgan got to share her input earlier.
Hi! I’m Bandit! I was born on Easter. I like long walks, annoying my sister Morgan, my red leash -not that girly purple one that Morgan uses – it has to be red. I also like my ball, monopolizing both food and water dishes and barking at leaves. I do not like it when I have to go to bed and I don’t like going out to potty without an audience. I do it because it drives the humans nuts (hee-hee). And I love being here with my new family!
I’ll make sure I get more blog posts here, because I’m pretty awesome.
