Bonjour! Je m'appelle Baxter!

I'm a fun and flirty six year old Bichon Frise, but I still look three. I love to leap, prance and play fetch. But don't make weird sounds around me, I don't appreciate it.

I'm unmarried but I like to think of myself as a father of 17 babies, stuffed animal babies. I love stuffed animals and the more the merrier. I try not to pick favorites, like any other father. Oh never mind, I love you blue dolphin! My favorite pass time is playing fetch with my tennis ball. I'm really good at giving the ball back to my mom.

My second favorite pass time is hanging out with my dearest friend Kitty. I love to chase her around the yard and lick her face. Sometimes she runs her claws through my luscious curly hair, I'm still not sure why she hisses while she does it but I really enjoy it.

I also enjoy walking with my mom and getting groomed. That Cesar dog food pooch doesn't have anything on this snout.

My dislikes are.... unhappy people. They really get me down. But not for long because I'm always happy.

Photo # 4, with brown pillow/sofa is one of best dog photos ever. It is so fun to see such a happy dog.

Baxter, I hope we see you on the beach someday, you little sweetheart.

Where does your happy little dog enjoy getting groomed? I know well a Bichon mix, a rescue dog, who looks quite a lot like Baxter and is also a happy creature; groomers always want to shave him.

844P - Not Baxter here but with a BF mix rescue dog, looking quite a bit like Baxter and who's also been told by many groomers in Santa Barbara, shave, shave, shave!

Having had bad experiences in several places where my dog emerged pink-skinned (and getting laughter from those who knew him before and after) and being scalped financially at For Paws/State Street (quoted $75 - charged on pickup $125!), I went to Dandy Dogs, Calle Real, about a mile beyond Storke. She did a good job for a reasonable price. I've also heard good things about a groomer on Linden in Carpinteria, sorry don't know the name.
