    Thank you for YOU and Baxter! God be with you in this very sad time for you right now.
    You helped me when my 10 year old Bernese Mt. Dog died with cancer in August…. Baxter and your mission and service has been a blessing to me
    Thank you for all you do 🙂

    this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    I saw a video of Baxter on the internet on Sunday, Oct 18th 2009. It was so moving it made me cry to know he brought such joy to people who really needed a lift. Being a nurse and spending time with people at the end of their lives, I see how they are so overjoyed to spend it with those they love. But I also see how the effects that a gentle touch, a kind word, a warm nudge from a furry little angel can make such a difference in a person’s life…or death. I am so glad that Baxter was able, in his long life, to bring such joy and peace to so many souls. God bless you for allowing him to minister to these and may He always bless you in all your endevours. In Christian Love, Alicia Smith Tennessee.

      This may sound funny, but when I think of who or what compares
      to Baxter, I can only recall “Lassie”. I know they’re are search
      and rescue dogs that are incredible, cancer sniffing dogs that
      are beyond special, but in the therapy dog category, in my
      experience, Baxter was the greatest and longest working.

      It’s almost as if he were “touched” by an angel and he was able
      to touch others on a level that goes deep to the core of one’s

      Thank you for your wonderful words.
