We drove 5 hours today, to NE Ohio and picked up Baxter. He is just adorable, if I do say so myself. He cried a little in his crate for a few minutes, then quieted down, I held him in my lap for a while, and then he slept the rest of the way home in his crate. Our greeting with Emilu was a little chaotic, as I had him in the front yard to potty, and SU just left Emilu out of her kennel to come running around and finding a puppy in the yard! She's been good with him, but definitely wants to play way to rough - Baxter hides between my legs (at least he knows where he's safe). And THEN - we were taking a little walk around the pond - I was throwing the Doken Duck for Emilu to keep her busy, but no one was paying enough attention to her , and she left it in the pond. I kept pointing to it and telling her to get it (where's a good ear pinch when you need it?), and little Baxter followed my hand and tumbled over the side of the dam (only about 3 feet down) and fell head first into the water! Can you say "puppy's first swim"? He had never been in the water before, and he came up sputtering, swam over to the shore and climbed up the dam face. Finished his walk around the pond, and then went to get rinsed off with the hose - just like big sis Emilu! I think he is going to be just a fine dog.

He was pretty interested in the Doken - before his swim!
Oh Pat. He is adorable. Welcome home, Baxter.
