Baxter is the Cutest Puppy in the World: A Study in 13 iPhone Photos

          Baxter does an amazingly large number of cute things for such a small puppy. His cute antics include (but are not limited to):

  • Lying with his back legs out
  • Snoring huge snores
  • Burping huge burps and then looking at you as if to say "....What was that?"

  • Sleeping in ridiculous positions, for instance twisting half his body around, stretching all the way out, bending his body at a 90 degree angle, or curling up ridiculously tiny on top of himself in a tucked away corner
  • Flinging himself like a flying squirrel into our pool, spread eagle in the air, and belly-flopping with a splash
  • Skidding and slipping when he makes sharp turns running on the stone floor. Boyfriend has taken to tripping Baxter on purpose as often as possible because it's so freakin' cute.
  • Jumping in the toy basket, jumping out of the toy basket, then jumping in the toy basket again and rolling around in all his toys. Then jumping out. 
  • Rolling around and wiggling like a maniac crazy dog when he's in your arms because he's so excited to see everyone and everything that's going on around him. 
Burrowing-Baxter is kind of like the yeti. Photographic proof is inconclusive and more reliable footage is yet to be found.
  • Burrowing under large piles of pillows until only his butt or one of his ears is sticking out from under the pile. If you're sitting on the couch, he'll often burrow under the pillows next to you, squirm in between your back and the back of the couch, and magically pop up on your other side.

  • Invading the personal space of our other dog. Other Dog will be sleeping and Baxter will sometimes literally go lie on top of his face. He looooves to be close to Other Dog. Other Dog likes him well enough but looks at me mournfully and sighs when Baxter starts crowding him.
Other Dog says "Whyyyyyyyyyyyy"
