We're thinking that our four day ski vacation might have been a bit tough on Baxter. He spent the time at a local kennel. The kennel owner was pretty sure this was not a lifestyle choice that Baxter liked. I can offer proof.
*Baxter has done almost nothing but sleep since he's been home. He's obviously catching up.
*He has no voice. None. When he tries to bark, it just doesn't come out. Nada. Nothing.
Our guess is that Baxter spent his days (and nights) barking. We're pretty sure that the other animals boarding there were quite annoyed. The kennel doesn't furnish earplugs. My guess is that the kennel owner and the other pets breathed a sigh of relief when he left.
Poor Baxter. Poor spoiled little thing.
