Once upon a time, in a little shelter that nestled between the rolling hills of Connemara and the wild Atlantic ocean, sat a young man named Baxter. Baxter was in a pickle. He thought he might be in custody. He didn't know why, because he was doing his very best to be a good boy, but every day, when the humans came to see him, they went away again, and he had to stay. Baxter did not understand at all. But he did what he could to express how confused and frightened he was. He had a big, loud bark, so he tried using his voice to express his feelings. That didn't work, it just made everybody jump. He tried to show how much he loved going out with his new friends, the volunteers. He loved playing ball and getting belly rubs with them. This worked a lot better. His new friends even took him to the beach! As Baxter explored the sandy dunes, he finally felt that he had managed to get the message across. This is where he liked to be - on adventures with his humans! However, disaster struck, because the humans did not entirely understand. They brought him back to the shelter, and said they had to go. Baxter was everything that an 11 month old Labrador X boy should be. Affectionate, bouncy, cordial, diligent...he was the whole package! He knew he didn't have any skills yet, but he was only a baby. His human would send him to training school. He knew that because the volunteers chatted to him and told him that a special human had to come and bail him out. They'd send him to school and teach him to speak human. "When that happens, it's called an adoption", they said. This adoption could not come soon enough for Baxter. He knew it would be hard work, but he was ready for the job. You've got to walk the human every day, remind them where the food is, in case they forget, and most of all, keep their sides warm in the evenings when the sun goes down...they're happiest when they're cosy. Every day that passed left him wanting more than morsels of attention that the volunteers had to share with all the dogs at the kennels. He set about making sure that he smiled for the camera, he looked over every wall, he checked under every rock. Just in case his human saw him. Then they'd realise that he was waiting for them, and they could take him home.
