Bandit's BFF

I haven't posted about Bandit in a long time. It seemed like I only posted when she was being her "bad dog" self (which was most of the time). She has taken up a new past time...... among digging holes in the back yard, chewing up my newly planted plants........
She wakes up and whines at the door to be let in the house to :::drum rolls::: lay by the bedroom door where grand daughter sleeps. She whines, cries, scratches the door and then howls if grand daughter does not hurry and open the door. Bandit and grand daughter are BFFs.
Can you believe she is still a puppy? A BIG puppy!
Anyway, we had a great weekend holiday. We covered pretty much all of Phoenix. The fireworks at Tempe Town Lake were fantastic! The kids want to come down next year for the fireworks here again. The highlight of the weekend for my grand son was when grandpa (my hubby) took him to Hooters. All the girls gathered around my grand son for a picture. He is still smiling :)
The highlight for my grand daughter besides getting a bear at the Hard Rock Cafe - was driving grandma's truck. Yep, hubby took grand daughter out and had her drive around in an empty parking lot. (She's 11) She was tickled pink!
Hope your holiday was as memorable!

Sounds like a fun time for all! Including BFF Bandit! LOL. I remember how my daughter loved to get to drive the pick up with her granddad! Memories that last forever!

How sweet! It seems Bandit is in good company. I posted a little about our new dog park today, then visited several little scotties and a husky. Must be the dog days of summer!

Bandit is a big sweet puppy, and she loves your grand daughter. Driving must have been fun for her. I enjoyed seeing my three boys over the holidays. Just like I get to see them every Sunday when they come home to do their laundry. :)

Bandit is sure going to miss her. Glad you had so much fun. My son went to Phoenix this last week to pick up a car for my other son that has a car dealership. Ty thought he would have some fun and meet with some college friends. He got off the plane really sick ( ended up strep) and stayed in a hotel for 2 nights. I was worried about him and told him I had friends there and if he was really that sick I might have to contact one of them. He said, "Oh great,probably a blog person." (o: He slept 2 days and then drove back on the third. No friends or any fun.
