We had some visitors interested in Baxter, who didn’t end up going home with him. He got very excited by their toddler, and his barking terrified her. So while he loves kids, he’s not really… appropriate for anyone who isn’t big enough to take a few knocks. The little jock.
So new visitors are coming tomorrow! They’re bringing their dog to meet him (in the street first!). I’m hopeful but guarded. He gets along great with most of the dogs he meets, but some seem to excite him, so we’ll see how they do together. As long as that goes well the match should be ideal– their other dog is a terrier too!
We’re simultaneously: totally happy and hopeful for Baxter, totally relieved to be relieved of one of our responsibilities in this time of thinly stretched resources for us, totally missing the puppy cuddles already, and totally guilty that we’re glad to see the back of him. XD Sounds about right I suppose.
We’ll let you know how it goes!
