Welcome, Baxter!


It’s been over a year since our Chelsea girl crossed over to the rainbow bridge. Our hearts have been open to adopting another dog. I wanted a female. Short haired. Small dog.

And then, I saw this picture on Facebook. Bosco was his name.

No, no, no! I thought, he looks like a lab mix.

A big dog.

A boy dog.

Baxter Adoption Day – 10/11/2016

Resist! I kept seeing his picture. This was posted on October 1, 2016. Look at that sad face!


Then, I did a dangerous thing. I went out to the rescue to meet him on Monday, October 10, 2016. The next day, I brought my husband back to meet him.  We found out then that his birthday is May 20, 2016. May 20 is also the birthday of one of our very dear friends.

And that, my friends, is when Bosco became Baxter!
