Baxter Kashmir Schmidt (@HandsomeBaxter) is a twitter pal from Norway, Maine. Baxter lives with his human, Lynne, and her boyfriend, Damien. Baxter says of Damien, “I get mad at him because he steals my spot on the couch.” Baxter does not have any fursiblings and says, “I wish I did, but I don’t.” This is Baxter’s story.
Baxter is almost 7 years old, and is a male, Boxer/German Shepherd mix, but as Baxter says, “If you talk to the landlord, Lynne doesn’t know.” Baxter is mostly brown with one completely white paw that he says, “Lynne calls it my ‘Michael Jackson Paw’ and she has a tattoo of it on her leg.”
Baxter says Lynne never had a “baby dog” before, so he had to “learn everything with her. I peed everywhere and pooed every time she left me alone. Plus, I had crippling separation anxiety. Things are better now.”
Baxter say he dislikes baths, rivers, oceans, rain, getting wet, guys and or dogs that try to come near Lynne, dogs who try to attack him, mean people, people who wear fur, toys that taste weird, dog treats that he doesn’t pick out, and bumping into things because of his 120 pound size.
