As Declan gets older, he and Baxter are getting to be better buds. I think a lot of it has to do with Baxter eating all the food scraps Declan throws off his tray, but it’s also that Declan is more aware of the dog and thinks he’s funny when he runs really fast, licks his face and plays with squeak toys. We’re practicing petting Baxter instead of the usually hitting Declan does…but it’s coming along slowly.
While I was home the other day, Declan and I had a fun time trying to find Baxter in various locations throughout the house. Baxter’s not that great at hiding, which is totally fine since Declan’s not that great at finding…but it got a few giggles out of Declan, and it was a good way to exhaust him before naptime by crawling all over the house and taking a few steps as he’s learning to walk.
Since Declan and Baxter are my two favorite obsessions, you know I followed those two around with my iphone to take pictures. So join us for a little hide and seek, won’t you?
A grayish Baxter trying the camouflage strategy in our game of hide and seek. Probably would’ve worked better if he didn’t need a bath.
Aha! Got you!
Good spot, B. Just not quite hidden…
