August 12, 2006. The day Bandit adopted us. He showed up looking lost. With two collars but no tags. We put signs up trying to find his rightful owners. After about two weeks I got a phone call from a guy who described him right down to the color of his collar. Said he thinks he belonged to a family that lived near him that moved, leaving Bandit behind. We were calling him Jack, but the guy said they called him Bandit. I turned to the dog and called him by that name and he turned his head to look at me. Hes been Bandit ever since.
