Typically when I write a Blog Post, my goal is to have you find value in my blog post and share with others you might feel will benefit from my words.
Today’s blog post is near and dear to my heart; could you take time to share.
Recently we lost a beloved member of our family, our Dog Bandit. Bandit was with us just 40 days short of his 17th birthday.
You might be asking what the heck does the passing of your dog got to do with investment real estate, in many ways everything.
Most of us get a pet to add a quality of life to our everyday living.
Anyone who has had a family pet as a child or in our adult life knows what I am talking about.
If you have listened to either one of my guest podcasts on Vacation Investment Real Estate
you know I am a big believer in adding Vacation Investment Real Estate to your investment portfolio.
Owning vacation investment real estate not only adds an attractive element to the quality to your life but those of your family, friends, and furry friends.
Double The Quality of Your Life – Vacation Home and Pet
Bandit, our family dog joined us on so many trips to the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Bandit and I went on many hikes together. We enjoyed our early morning walks, it was a peaceful time of the day, and we would sonneteer along the main street of Canmore, a Rocky Mountain town just outside of Banff National Park. The mountain views are spectacular, and I always sensed Bandit knew where he was.
Bandit was born just as we were entering the Digital Age. (no camera film negatives)
Thanks to the digital times in picture taking; we were able to capture many incredible moments with Bandit and all the special times he added to our family and friends’ events.
Bandit had lost the use of his hind legs in late 2016. Through our veterinarian’s help; medicine and acupuncture we got him back on the road to recovery.
We walked him several times a day and even though he never fully recovered he was able to go for 10 or 15 block walks.
This winter was not too kind to Bandit and walking became more difficult.
The distances became shorter over the last couple of months. Bandit was a real trooper and did the best he could. We had a unique walking device for him, and it certainly helped.
The tears are now pouring down my face; Bandit passed away in my arms on the way to the veterinarian mid-afternoon July 20, 2018. My wife thinks he died before we pulled out of the garage. Brendalee believes Bandit wanted to go to Doggie Heaven at home with us.
Bandit’s last breath was undying love.
Bandit added quality of life and years to our lives we will never forget.
