Meet Bandit, the Official Dog of the Unholy Rouleur since 2007.
He's an 18 month-old Smooth Collie - Lassie without the hippie haircut.
Bandit is a good name for him. He loves to thieve little things - like my son's toys - and chew on them. Or paintbrushes. Or the cats' toys. Or my t-shirts.
It's nice sharing our lives with a dog again. It's been 4 years since we had one. Yep, it's a bit of extra work and commitment, but building the love and working relationship between a dog and yourself makes it worth it. It helps that he's a fine looking dog, mischievous and smart - it's fun just watching him try to get into trouble. That'll probably get old fast, but for ow, we're enjoying it.
