BAXTER: HE CAME TO US FROM THE CALAVARAS COUNTY SHELTER. HE SPENT 7 MONTHS IN A RESCUE KENNEL WHERE HE WAS SAVED FROM EUTHANASIA BUT LIVED A LONELY LIFE. HE WAITED FOR A FOREVER FAMILY TO TAKE HIM HOME BUT NO ONE EVER CAME, MAYBE BECAUSE HE WAS 8 YEARS OLD.. BAXTER WAS WITH OUR RESCUE FOR A FEW MONTHS AND THEN THAT MAGICAL DAY HAPPENED AND HE WAS ADOPTED. WHEN NANCY AND BILL TOOK HIM AWAY HE LOOKED CONFUSED AND RIGHTLY SO. BUT HE SOON SETTLED IN TO HIS FOREVER HOME AND WE GET MANY GLOWING REPORTS LIKE THIS ONE:
Susan… yesterday, June 14th, was the four-month anniversary of when Baxter came to live with us ….. and have to report that, if anything, Bill has fallen more deeply in love with this hunk of a dog.
Think I told you last time, we don’t even have him on a leash when we take him out for walks on our lane …. And when we think he’s had enough (or we have…), we’ll say “Baxter, you wanna go home” …. And invariably, he’ll look at whoever’s walking him, turn around and start heading home. In fact, he gets to the driveway first and starts up it .. turning every so often to make sure we’re still there.
He is just a love …. We’re just so happy that he came to live with us. And I know Bill seconds that for sure …..
So again, thank you so much Susan…
