Surprise! Louisa and I just adopted Baxter, a 7-month-old rescue puppy brought to us by Saving Paws of Washington from the recent Oklahoma tornados. Although his story may sound tragic, this supercharged tornado mutt is healthy, friendly, and can tell his friends he outran a 200mph category 5 wind storm. After about a week of acclimation, we all went up to Arlington to visit some of the family at the new house for a traditional 4th of July BBQ.
Baxter’s medical records, our vet, and people we see on the street all have a different opinion on his breed. He could be part German Shepard, part Chow, part Shar Pei, part …
Nick and dad tossed a frisbee. To be honest, Nick mostly tossed the frisbee and dad chased it across the yard in his flip-flops.
And here we see mom’s pup Daisy (on the right). She and Baxter had a nice time chasing each other around the house and getting their leashes tangled. I think it’s going to take a few more visits to get these two to simmer down.
