Congratulations to Baxter, Tampa Bay Newspapers’ October Pet Photo of the Month winner.
Now 5 months old, this photo was taken when he was just 6 weeks old and only four pounds. His human family – Glenn, Renee and their son, Michael Cohen, all of Indian Rocks Beach – wanted to always remember how small he was when he was a puppy, so they snapped this photo next to a beer can to use as size comparison.
The Cohens got Baxter from a breeder in Tallahassee.
Baxter loves to chase sticks and cuddle and is especially fond of belly rubs. He accompanies his human parents to work, so he gets plenty of playtime throughout the day and loves visiting with everyone.
He is now learning basic tricks and commands, with Glenn’s favorite being “high five.” But the biggest reason his family thinks Baxter is so special is how lovable he is.
He sleeps in his parents’ bed and has to always be leaning against them or resting his head on their pillow. Baxter also has a Siamese kitty sibling, Kasey.
As TBN's pet photo winner, Baxter wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.
