So you all should know by now that I keep track of all the anniversaries. So how about a happy one? 

It was one year ago today that I saw the picture below online. For whatever reason, that little dog piqued my interest. A few days later, I went to visit him and a few days after that I brought him home. And now a year later, it’s working out pretty well.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

Wow, David.

My head just went: “that is impossible, that couldn’t have been a year already!” 

And that it hit me once again that Manni’s one year dead soon so your post makes complete sense. wow. I am glad you have Baxter, though, as I’m sure are you and who wouldn’t have fallen in love with that picture?!?

Hugs to you and cuddles to Baxter!!

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY BAXTER😁😁     Hope you are getting some ice cream and cake!!🍰🍧  We need pictures!!!!

We remember  well when your Dad first introduced  us to who  Rocky picked for you💖  And yeah, we fell in love  with that “interesting ” mug too!  We knew there was a whole lot of personality just waiting to be unleashed!  Didn’t  you jump on the sofa and settle in for a nap the first night you were in your furever home?

Good job Rocky!  You knew what was best for your Dad, even if he doubted  that “inner voice” (aka you whispering  in his ear)way-cool

Hope everyone is having a happy Thanksgiving. 

So today is the actual Gotcha day when I brought a very sick Baxter home from the shelter. I didn’t realize just how sick until the next day. Thankfully, no emergency room visits tonight. He celebrated his Thanksgiving and his observed third birthday with some hamburger mixed in with his kibble, some ice cream and a bone. His belly should be full. 

I’ll try to upload some pics when I get a chance.

Happy Birthday/Gotcha Day BAXTER!!!

Okay, is there a way to DITTO that great Birthday card from Jackie?? Cause I’m  sitting it!  Purrfect card!!

And Baxter got hamburger. a bone AND ICE CREAM!!!!! YAAAAAAAYFOR ICE CREAM!!🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍨🍧🍧

So much fun following  Baxter and knowing  he was the perfect pick for you…and you for him!!    I hate to think what would have happened  had someone  else taken him home and found out he was sick.  The likelihood  of him being returned to the shelter and not getting proper care or, worse yet, not getting a home and have to spend another holiday in a cage.  Vut Rocky took care of that!😎

PICTURES!!!!!  PICTURES!!!!!!!!!

And a hello to your Mom and Dad’s pups too, okay??

Hugs

Picture time. 

So this is an old picture of Rocky in his favorite chair. It was a cheap little chair I picked up when I lived in an apartment, but Rocky made it his own at the house.

Well, as you can see, somebody has decided to carry on the tradition:

Just melt my heart David!heart  Thank you so much for sharing, you made my morning. That is so cute how Baxter adopted Rocky’s chair. He has such an adorable face and he looks so content!
