Bandit's Fathers Day

I posted this to the hav lists on Sunday and Bandit is still making sure that her Daddy pays attention to his flowers.

I found out yesterday that today is Father's Day (what a surprise!) so I went to the store around midnight after Steve went to bed. I got him a large bouquet of lilies (it was the first type of flower he ever bought me when we were dating) and a card from the dogs. All of the dogs wanted to see what I was bringing in the house from the grocery store, then got bored when they saw the flowers except Bandit. She wanted to smell them and sat and watched me arrange them with great interest which kind of surprised me. Normally at that time of night all she cares about is being in bed stealing my pillow.
She watched as I arranged the flowers and then wanted to see the card. I read the card to her and said it was a doggie card for Daddy from them. She gave it her lick of approval then followed me into the office where I put the card and flowers on Steve's desk, then off to bed she went (and Bandit being Bandit, took my pillow).
I stayed up till 4 am watching the beautiful display of lightning waiting for a storm that went pooft just as it got to Corpus. I should know better by now as that always seems to happen, but the times I go to bed, we do get a storm.
I slept in this morning and when I got up, Steve couldn't wait to tell me about Bandit. This morning when he got up, he did his normal routine of turning off the alarm and opening the back door so the dogs can go potty. With Bandit being pregnant, she's usually in a big hurry to go potty, but this morning she refused and ran into the office instead. Steve was puzzled, so he followed her.
She was there pointing up at the flowers. Steve says her nose was stretched as far as it could go toward the flowers and she looked like a pointer. He gave her a kiss and told her thank you for the flowers and expected her to go outside then. Instead she kept pointing up at the flowers, so then he saw the card. He opened the card and gave Bandit a kiss and hug for the card, then she flew to the back door to go potty.
What a girl

Wow! That seems so unbelievable, so when you know it's true, it's a big WOW! Our Izzy just isn't that intuned to us, so I'm really impressed.....that's a really sweet story. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't think Bandit was that in tuned either so it caught me by surprise. We got Bandit and she was supposed to be my dog, instead she fell head over paws in love with my husband. The girl has great taste
I'm the one she curls up to at night though and I'm a good substitute for her Daddy during the day

Neat story. Bandit must be a really cool dog!I think they do sense some things,but not like your Bandit---but we can hope!

Quincy is not allowed in our beds,but he does tuck my little special needs son in every night.He can sometimes be a little rough with Quincy,but at bed time Quincy races up the steps to tuck Robbie in.He jumps in his car bed,gives him some face/ear lickies and then goes and sits at the top of the stairs waiting for me.It is really endearing.......
