New self appointed vice president of South Central Printing
In a family which has had great dogs, they're already calling the friendly mature shelter dog "the best dog ever," maybe even better than Tippy or Corky, the latter a history making dog who was first to discover, with his Uncle Michael Campbell, a just dropped sinkhole on the John Lowe urban farm
By Uncle Ed
He was the talk of the Circle R last night. The dog who adopted my nephew, Doug at Green River Animal Shelter on Tuesday, has taken over the family and is now a self-appointed Vice President of South Central Printing.
He had a shelter name of "Red," for his unusual coloration. There was a bit of behind the scenes negotiations by Sydney Waggener, who wanted a black puppy, but "Red" was the chosen.
Sydney did name the dog. Now he's "Bandit." - Bandit Dog Waggener. He follows Doug everywhere. Though there's no doubt where Bandit's primary loyalties are, he makes friends with everybody.
They are saying in the family, that he may be the greatest dog the family has ever had. And there have been many, going back to Jamestown Hill's top two of all time: Tippy, somewhat of a collie, and Corkie, a big friendly yellow dog whose favorite people were Ralph Waggener - he was Ralph's dog - and Corkie's Uncle, Mike Campbell.
Corky made history when he discovered a just dropped sinkhole in the locust grove, right near the hog chute, on the John Lowe urban farm across from the then Hilltop Cafe, know for the past six plus decades as "The Circle R."
Unfortunately, the sinkhole was never named for Corky, and/or Michael Campbell, who naturally attempted an exploration. The sinkhole can't be found today, but a historical marker ought to be placed there.
All that being said, there is complete agreement that Bandit, the mature shelter dog, is "the best dog ever."
