|This is his hunting face|
No, but really.
Maybe it's because Baxter is 120 pounds. Maybe it's because he's a little clutzy. But when I ran the road race in October, he was waiting for me at the finish line. We tried chili together (more-so, he snagged my bowl when I wasn't looking), and explored territory we'd never seen.
As we walked through the crowd, a dog who I'd been eyeing since we'd arrive lunged out of nowhere and went after Baxter. The owner didn't even apologize, meanwhile I wanted to punch him in the back of the head. (Awhile later, the same dog went after another dog who was passing by. Angryface.)
Just before the awards cemerony, there were a million people milling about. Baxter
|The worst that's going to happen|
is him knocking you over
I wanted to yell at her to get "The baby!" off the ground. What am I supposed to do? Pick Bax up and carry him? Nope, you can do that with the baby.
Ugh. I wish people realized that I'm the more dangerous one out of the duo.
Outside of that, if you don't know Baxter very well, he does this....thing. (Sadly, I don't have a picture of it.)
If you give him a treat, or if you've been gone for awhile and he's REALLY happy to see you, he'll scrunch his face up and show ALL of his teeth. Legit, it looks like he's about to eat your face off. I have to warn people about this WAY ahead of time.
Do your pets ever look like they're about to maul you?
