all puppies are not created equal...except for cuteness

and what I mean is, most of the dogs I've had in my life have been somewhat mellow, easy going and simple to discipline...not this puppy! He (Baxter) has a very strong personality, is a complete clown and always makes me laugh. He's quite entertaining.

His other side is extremely loving, all cuddle buggish with so much adoration in his eyes when he looks up at me. If I leave for any amount of time, you know that royal "where have you been all my life!" treatment? Well, I get that when I simply just open the door and come out of the bathroom. He insists on constant physical touching, as light as a teeny paw on my arm, or as blatant as laying across my neck and sticking his nose in my ear...which tickles like crazy and usually turns into a kissing feast. How can something that weighs only 2 pounds have such a profound effect on ones life?

Animals are a gift
to us humans
that is both
mystifying and generous

Oh how cute and cuddly is that? There is nothing quite like a puppy or kitten for cheering one up is there. And for loving! They are the best.

Auntie Em Kitty Girl is 'helping' me by walking across the keyboard as I type.

Isn't it wonderful that they effect us that way?

We have such a great time with our cat Hazel.

Baxter is one cute lil rascal.

Give him a few scritches on the neck for me, please.

Oh Darlene! I've been longing for a puppy. I just read Ceaser Millan's (the dog whisperer) latest book and it is fantastic.

We won't be ready for a puppy for a while but I am so looking forward to one sometime in the next year.

More pictures!

Woof-woof!
