One of the reasons I’ve not blogged very much in the last year is because we’ve had our hands full with the latest addition to the Charlton household. Back in March 2014, I sent a picture of a rescue dog from the RSPCA to Si and the rest, as they say, was history. I was determined to get a dog but Si was never all that keen but when we met Baxter, I think it was love at first sight. He’s changed us completely and definitely for the better but I don’t think I appreciated how much Baxter himself had changed. It was only after going through some photos of him that I realised what a markedly happier dog he is.
Found abandoned and cowering under a bush, he definitely came with some major issues but the three of us have worked really hard together to overcome them and whilst he still has his problems (and we totally understand why), he’s a very different pooch. We officially adopted him in April 2014 and I think we’re so lucky to have him in our lives.
Here’s a photo taken the very first time I met him and another from a recent walk on Weston Super Mare beach. I’m sure you’ll agree that he’s incredibly different!
