Baxter !

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 18 February 2009 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Baxter is a large dog.

This is an understatement.

He lives at working wood mill and creative center in Eureka, California. This he shares with lots of people, a donkey, two oxen, and a bunch of feral cats. Yet given all of the activity - this is about as excited as I've ever seen him get.

Great shot - this makes me want to take a nap! I love the big dog and the relaxed street front feel. Thanks for your information on yesterday's shot and I am glad you've been busy! Have a great rest of the week! I have a photo coming up in the next week or so in your honor - i was brave enough to stand in the middle of the road.

That's the kind of dog I love, one that is so friendly and will lay at your feet and enjoy your company. Would make a great companion in front of a nice warm fireplace here in PA. Beautiful shot Stephen.

Il est fatigué, il baîlle...

@Martine: Il sera peut-être fatigué - il serait peut-être exciter et à une grande aventure - il est difficile de déterminer la différence.

It is raining here. The thunder cracks. And now I need a nap because I keep yawning. Bet this old fella does a lot of yawning. Great photo.

@Walter: Hey there, Walter - I miss the lightning and thunder - a rare occurrence here. Baxter may just be the reigning champ of the yawn world. Be well...
