This is a little late in the day, but I wanted to post it anyway.
Happy Birthday, Baxter!
Today, you are 9 years old! It has been an absolutely wonderful 9 years, and I hope there are many more. You are such a beautiful boy with so much personality. Watching you grow up, has been an absolute blessing for me. I love how you have matured into a full fledged adult, but also how you continue to have spunk. You still make me smile everyday. I could never have asked for anything better.
Because of you, I got into dog training. Throughout our years together, you have taught me a lot about life, what unconditional love is, and what having a "child" is like. ;-) Thank you!
