It is with heavy heart that I must report the time has come to say farewell to Bandido, our faithful adventure dog. It didn’t matter if we were taking a drive to the coffee shop, or a ride on the Ural across the country, he was always happy to head out and eager to face whatever adventure the road might bring us. I’d be a damn lucky person if I could approach every day with the same unfettered joy he demonstrated day after day in the years that I was blessed to know him.
Pictures being worth a thousand words, here’s a small novella dedicated to our glorious canine companion:
