Time for a bath

Now that Jaxson is done with his therapy, I thought it would be a good time for a grooming. This was my treat to him for his hard work. His fur was growing out kind of crazy so hopefully it will be more even now. He was such a brave boy and went with his foster brother Dexter.

Middle aged guy

We think Jaxson is about eight years old and I know what most people think about that..."I want a younger dog so I can have more time with him" or "Having a dog from puppy age creates a special bond with them". Now that our lab is almost eight and through the various ages of foster dogs we've had, I have to say the older ones are they way to go. Maybe it's the white faces or the extra snuggle time; I honestly don't know. I just think that the guys who have weathered the storms really have the extra good love to give. This is the case with my friend Jaxson. He loves the simple things:  Naps, snuggles, short walks, bird/rodent watching and meals. In my opinion, that sounds like the best kind of life.
