Yesterday, we had to say goodbye to our best friend and the goodest boy, Baxter, after twelve and a half years of faithful companionship.
Just like Marley from Marley & Me, Baxter was our clearance puppy, no joke. He cried for his mama every night for about a week straight after we brought him home, so that gave us some good practice for when he had babies later.
Here he is enjoying his first snowfall. He always did enjoy playing in the snow, even though we don’t get it that often here.
He also loved running at the beach, although he didn’t like actually getting in the water like you would expect a Lab to do.
The present under our Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
Baxter was always so gentle and loving with our boys.
What a handsome lad.
You probably didn’t know this, but he also moonlighted as a superhero in his down time.
Thank you for being such a good boy. We didn’t deserve you. Rest easy, old friend.

RIP Baxter. What a lovely dog!
So sorry to hear about Baxter passing…but the memories of what you have posted about him over the years are so special.
Jason, sorry I haven’t checked in for a long time! I remember when Baxter was a baby! Such an awesome dog! They truly touch our hearts and are loved as family! We lost our 16 year old Beagle last fall, and we have a 15 year old Jack Russel that we are going to have terrible heart crushing pain when she goes, she’s been a really special girl! I am still torn up over loosing my boy Tanner, he was by my side 11/99 to 11/11/11. Take care sir! 73 de Seth – W8FG
