Arrival Story:
I went to lots of dog shows for the first few years of my life but my breeder decided that after siring a litter of pups (that all grew up to be assistance dogs) that I needed a one-dog home. I craved attention and wasn't getting much of it in a home with 19 other full grown labs. My Mom was lucky enough to be chosen by this big yellow slobbery lovable pooch. (That's me! Mr B!)

HI everyone -
Sorry I haven't written in a long time. Grandpa's been sick since May and is still fighting a bunch of nasty bugs. He's in the hospital again and Mom spends alot of time there and at work. I'm lonely at home but I understand Mommy needs to take care of Grandpa. I'm looking forward to the day I get to run around Grandpa's yard again while he throws me frisbees.
Mommy says her prayers every night that Grandpa will get better.

But there's good news, Mommy ordered a laptop - she says its a computer that she can sit on the couch with me and watch tv instead of being in the office with me under her feet. She can't wait to get it so she can write updates on Grandpa and be part of Dogster again.

I'm crossing my paws it gets here soon, I miss Mommy so much.
Mommy even said she was looking into Doggie Daycare for me so I can spend some fun time with other doggies every now and then. I don't get to do that much since Grandpa got sick.
Anyways,
I'm still a happy Baxter.

1. I was shown for the first three years of my life.
2. I lived in Texas and Canada and central Illinois before settling with mom.
3. My mom wanted a puppy from my sister's litter but she had a false pregnancy.
4. I jumped in mom's lap when she came to visit my sister. I wanted to make a big impression on her. And it worked! She took me home!
5. I love dried sweet potatoes to chew on.

It got warm here in the past few days. Mom says winter isn't over but I don't believe her! I just want to be outside all the time. It was sunny all weekend and Mom left me on Saturday to go shopping with her friend. She didn't even bring anything home for me! I checked by sticking my nose in all her bags. She yelled at me because I guess I got some snot on her brand new shirt. But I don't care, she deserves it! She could have at least brought me a treat!

She did take me for a really long walk in the evening but I really wanted to go to Grandma and Grandpas or to the dog park. Hrmph! I sulked all night.

But now I feel bad because this morning we went for a long walk (Boy the smells are back! I sniff everything at leats twice to make sure I haven't missed anything). Then Mom had breakfast and got my waterbottle and treats and HOORAY! She put the dog park pass around her neck and I knew where we were going!

I was so excited because we stopped at Petco first and while I got my nails trimmed (ugh!) Mom bought me some treats! Off to the park we went.

What fun!!! I was crying and wheezing in the car from excitement! It was extra special since it was so MUDDY! I love mud. I love to squish it between my toes. There was a chocolate lab at the park that I played with. His name was Parker. His Mom said he was muddy too but you couldn't tell!

There was a Golden Retreiver there that I played with and you could tell he was muddy! I just had fun running through the mud. I even got it on my face! Mom said I had painted an eyebrow on myself with mud! Parker's Mom suggested a dip in the creek to wash us off a little so off we went! I splashed around with Parker in the creek for awhile but then Mom said we had to go.

When we got home Mom toweled me off pretty good but said I stank. I thought I smelled like mud! And creek! Hooray! But after Mom had lunch she realized I was sound asleep snoring like crazy. So Mom took a nap too.

Tonight I got a bath. Now I don't smell like the creek anymore. How am I supposed to remember this fun day now! Mom says we'll go again to the dog park soon, but for now I'll just have to deal with smelling Minty fresh. Blech.
I'm sooooo tired though. I'm going to dream of the dog park tonight!
Sweet muddy dreams everyone.
