Did you hear that Baxter????  DARLING!!!  D.A.R.L.I.N.G!  And then we have ADORABLE!   We have MELTING HEARTS!!!  And we have PUPPY FACE!!!!

Yes indeed Baxter, you are all of those and more!  I want to add sooooo SMOOCHABLE!!!  😘Probably  very spoiled and you known it goes in there somewhere too😎

Rocky must have told Baxter about his chair.  Clearly Baxter was well versed into how to melt right into it.🤗

Made my day!   Thanka for the smiles!!

Sorry I’m late with my reply, but Baxter says “woof woof” which I think roughly translates to “thanks for the birthday wishes and cards!”

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

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

Baxter finally got to meet Santa today. He was so excited, he had all the dogs in the store barking. We had to go “hide” so the people in front of us could get their dogs calmed down enough for their picture.

For comparison’s sake, this was the first time Rocky met Santa. He was not as amused as Baxter was.

Hahaha!!!  Great comparison  of polar opposite reactions!!!🤣😂

Yeah, Rocky doesn’t  want anything to do with that Santa Claus, except, as Jackie said, maybe as an entree on his dinner plate!

Now, speaking  of “that” Santa Claus, Baxter’s Santa Claus is certainly more engaged! His body language  is a lot more welcoming  to Baxter than  Rocky’s Santa Claus!!  Then again, Rocky’s body language  isn’t  exactly welcoming  either!!! 

I think Baxter’s Santa had a much more believable  beard.  I think Rocky knew his Santa was fake.  Smear boy!

Such great photos on so many levels😊

Yeah, Santa with Rocky is like “I’m ready to go home” and Rocky is like “Take your picture, because this is as close as I’m getting to this guy.” Baxter’s Santa is definitely having a better time. 

I never even noticed the beards. Yeah, Baxter’s was more legit. Rocky knew his was a fake.

Just got home from the emergency vet a little while ago. Baxter’s back issue flared up again. It was about a year ago when it first happened. So it’s looking like he may have some sort of disc disease.  

I got him some Gabapentin and Carprofen at the ER but declined X-Rays. I’ll have his regular vet look at him later today and go from there. The nurse at the ER didn’t seem real optimistic, so hopefully we get better news later today.
