This is my dog Baxter, a Border Collie cross Standard Poodle. He is ten years old, turning 11 soon. We have had Baxter since he was four months old, and he is the sweetest and kindest dog I know. His personality is calm and lazy, and he likes his food. We all joke that he is permanently stoned. He sadly has bone cancer but he is fighting it like a champ and I am so blessed to have had him this long, and to have been able to say he has lived a great life with us. He also howls when someone is coming home, leaving or if he hears another dog. We call it singing. He is very good I think we should put him on a dog version of the Voice. Submitted by Natalie M.
