Now I know the meaning…

Now I know the meaning of “sad puppy dog eyes”.

We had to take Baxter to his 6 month appointment at the vet. two weeks ago.

You know, that appointment where he goes in a little boy doggie and comes out a man doggie…only with fewer body parts than when he went in?

He was very excited for the road trip…. I didn’t have the heart to tell him what was on the agenda for the day.


Let’s just say he was a very different doggie when Chris picked him up later.


Scared of anything and everything.


We had to elevate his food and water bowls so that he could get to them. Which he didn’t anyway because he was too scared of them. It was a very sad sight, and now I know exactly what sad puppy eyes look like. He kept staring at us as if to say “what have you done to me”?

Fortunately, he is pretty much back to normal…romping around the house and getting into everything.

He’s still afraid of my rain boots, though… and let’s keep it that way.

I don’t want any bite marks in those babies.
