Baxter visited us most of the day yesterday since his people had to be in Fargo for surgery. A plate was put in Beth's foot....the surgery went well and she is recovering at home.
Baxter was a good boy, he took off once...he knows the way from our house to his house....but he came back after a couple of minutes and I put the leash on him. He doesn't like the leash so the rest of the day he stayed close to me and came when called...helps to have treats in your pockets! He was funny when I was scrubbing the kitchen floor, he kept coming up to me to see if I was okay! ( I scrub on hands and knees/butt) We shared some lunch and then we borrowed the Gator and went off to spray poison ivy...he is a good co pilot keeping watch for anything that moves. Using the Gator I could take him with me....I usually spray off my lawn mower. After a while we both got warm so we headed into the AC, he laid on the steps so he could look out the window and then we had a short nap...after that he wanted to go home. He was done being away for the day! He likes riding in the Ranger and goes in and out easily for me.
He is a pretty smart small dog....I think he weighed 46 pounds on his last visit to the Vet.
