On Monday, October 20, 2003, we picked up an 11 week old Beagle puppy, which we named Baxter.
As you might guess, Bubba absolutely adores Baxter.
Baxter's got a really rough life, as you can see, here:
He's got a number of tickle spots, one of which is right in the middle of his chest:
Personally, I don't think he likes me, very much:
Unfortunately, Shlomo and Shadow haven't really taken to Baxter, just yet. Shlomo will let the pup be, until Baxter starts talking to him and trying to get him to play. This usually results in a "hiss-y" fit on Shlomo's part.
Shadow usually growls at Baxter whenever he gets close. Don't let these pictures fool you...it's a rare moment when Shadow lets Baxter within a foot of her:
Personally, I think she's starting to soften up. ;-)
