Musings From A Musical Mind

Moments With Baxter

I saw this dog on facebook several month ago.  And I may have even seen it on some blog sites as well.  Today it was once again brought to my attention and I thought I would dig a little more into the background story on this special dog.

Baxter was part Golden Retriever and part Chow. He lived to be 19 1/2 – and the last 4 years of his life as a certified therapy dog. Please enjoy watching the story of how he came to be a therapy dog, in the first video (and watch for the cute Bichon dog close to the end) and in the second one – see him making his rounds with his owner at the hospital – bringing love and comfort.

There are some things that are unexplainable in this life – and there is a mystery surrounding the touch of animals – but no one can dispute that they have a special ability to touch the heart and soothe the soul. I’m sure you will be touched by hearing and seeing how an elderly dog can bring joy to so many hurting and dying patients.

God Bless

  1. Does Baxter still have a FB page – would love to join. May he now RIP after all his tireless work to help the elderly – little champ so he is xxxmwahxxx

  2. Wouldja believe I’m friends on FB with several working dogs? LOL I love my buddy Surf Dog Ricochet. Ricki was supposed to be a service dog, but now she’s a SURFice dog who raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for animal and people causes. I also know Stacey Mae, a big lovable greater Swiss mountain dog who does therapy work in hospitals and takes teddy bears to the lonely folks there. Personally, I know a heart dog (senses when her person’s heart starts beating incorrectly), several dogs for the blind and one dog who senses epileptic seizures. It’s simply amazing what dogs can do!

  3. Thankyou for letting me know about Baxter.
