*"I love poetry, and a glass of scotch. And of course, my friend Baxter."

This is Baxter. Yes, we named our dog after the dog in "Anchorman." Actually, I can blame my husband for that one. I wanted to call him Cosmo, but I lost. But, he really is a Baxter.

Baxter is a Westie, and is supposed to have pert, little ears that point straight up. But, his ears are large, and floppy, and we love him for it. Our entire family is completely and totally smitten with this little guy.

He is a perpetual motion machine, making it crazy-hard to get a picture of him. Most of our pictures of Baxter end up looking like this...

and this...

and especially this.

But every once in a while, we see his true "Baxterness", rather like a rubber band that has been stretched to its limit and is ready to snap off your fingers and fly across the room.

* Edited to add: The title of this post is a quote from Anchorman. I don't really like scotch.
